Best Job EVER!!!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Arcadia, CAAugust 19, 2013
Pros: learning new skills
Cons: not being able to stay loner to make it a life time career.
THE DRY CLEANNERS WAS MY FIRST JOB, AND THE BEST, I WAS SAD IT WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. A DAY AT WORK THERE WAS AMAZING, LIKE A LITTLE FAMILY. MY FAVORITE PART WAS PUTTING CLOTHES IN NUMERICAL ORDER, AND BEING ARROUND THE CUSTOMERS, THEY MADE THE BUSINESS HAPPEN.

Not always perfect
Associate (Current Employee), Northbrook, ILAugust 13, 2013
Pros: candy, coworkers, store itself
Cons: clientele, corporate
Love the product, the atmosphere, the camaraderie of the coworkers; but the clientele and uniforms leave a lot to be desired. Not happy about the corporate issues, either.

Every other person in the store is either rude or nasty, and those that aren't are ditzy and remarkably slow. It makes life a little more difficult when every third customer wants – more... to know the price of each and every single item on the floor...and the price happens to be right above each and every product.

Because corporate is in California, they have no trouble ignoring every issue this store brings up - and indeed every store east of the Rockies. – less

Productive & friendly environment
Sales associate/Key Carrier (Current Employee), Hemet, CAJuly 5, 2013
Pros: free candy while on the job, discounts, 45 minute lunches.
Cons: downtime when not the holidays
When i arrive i ask what needs to be done. I clean, stock, help customers, hand out samples, merchandise, handle cash, credit cards, checks & gift certificates.

I learned how to merchandise and how to change out ads. They taught me how to open and how to work in this company.

The management ran things smooth and effectively.

My co-workers are among – more... the kindest & most friendly ladies i've ever encountered. I enjoy working with each and everyone of them.

The hardest part of my job would have to have been opening for the first time alone. I was nervous and.was secret shopped. I received a 90% score. I got everything done on time and actually received a job well done on my next scheduled day of work.

The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the customers. Because of the area we are in, most of our clientele is elderly. I have a passion for helping the elderly and have volunteered in a nursing home for a summer when i was a preteen. So i really enjoy working with the customers and watching them leave with a smile & knowing i gave them the best customer service i could have. – less

Lead Sales Person, Sales Floor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJune 27, 2013
Pros: free candy, and nice managers
Cons: short breaks, ugly work uniforms, and pay/hours given depends on how much sales
I love working for this company. The pay rate was pretty good too. However, I did not like the work uniforms, there was no store, all the employees were mostly women and we had to stock inventory and carry heavy boxes up and down elevators to the kiosk. The days worked depended on how much profit we made per day.

Ok place to work
Shop Audit Specialist (Former Employee), San Bruno, CAJune 24, 2013
Worked there as a temp. People were cool, however the management was draconian. Way too much of manual work did a lot of the office work could be atomized.

Assistant Team Leader (Former Employee), Dover, DEJune 9, 2013
Pros: the candy
Cons: only seasonal position
Hard work but really great! Seasonal job selling candy. It was so much fun. The hardest part was that the job was only seasonal. I could have done it longer. The most enjoyable part was interacting with so many people! Plus its a great company that people recognize and they enjoy. Customers were always eager to sample candy and chat with us.

Stock/Sales Clerk (Former Employee), Granada Hills, CAJune 7, 2013
Working for See's Candies was an enjoyment, walking into the shop for the first time of the day being met with the appealing fragrance of the chocolate is definitely a mood setter. Not only are you met by the smell but friendly staff offer their greetings and provides comfort.

Productive and fun workplace with many sweet things about it.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Industry, CAJune 6, 2013
Pros: tasting as much chocolate as you want.
Cons: some people may get over chocolate after having worked there.
A typical day on the job at See's candies consisted of readying yourself for work with some light exercises followed by the same log-in procedures that would be done at any other workplace. When that was all completed we would then move to the floor where we would perform our duties in selling chocolate, whenever there was time we didn't have customers – more... we would restock and see what there needed to be cleaned to keep it looking good. We as associates of See's are allowed to taste the chocolate in order to better suggest a flavor to any customer should they ask for suggestions. The management and staff are very lovely and kind to one another and you always feel welcomed. The hardest part of the job may also be the most rewarding is when the holidays come around and you must deal with that rush of customers and you need to get everything done in a timely manner in order to please customers with a good experience that would want them to come back to our store again. – less

Cashier/Sales Support (Former Employee), Redlands, CAFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: free samples of candy all day
Cons: becoming addicted to see's candies
Preparing custom made candy boxes for customers, providing efficient customer service, process all bank and register transactions. I learned different tastes of candies and how some can help with upset stomach..etc, Management was great, very understanding, lots of patience and went the extra mile for the team. All workers were very happy and friendly – more... and will to lend an extra hand. The hardest part of my job was self control over eating lots of candy. The most enjoyable part is watching everyone leave happy with there favorite choices they selected. – less
