Many operators are cynical, as the manufacturing environment has changed over the past decades and global competition has driven operational changes. Workload is lighter and compensation better than competitors, but many employees don't realize how good they have it. Overall, employees are committed to producing a quality product, even if they disagree with changes Hershey makes to remain competitive.
Excellent compensation compared to competitors
