District Account Supervisor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 5, 2017
Great learning experience. Super training. Opportunity for advancement. You worked really hard but were compensated accordingly. Working at the retail level you were dealing with many different personalities.
Good Company; needs to find their way; losing good talent
Sales (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – November 20, 2017
Good long term vision, but is overshadowed by short term fiscally driven decisions. This is causing good talent to leave. Touting diversity of thought and smart risk taking, but most leaders are afraid to stick their neck out and make a decision.
I wish I did not have to quit this job, but my spouse was transferred and we moved out of state. I tried to get a position with Hershey in my new town, but they are such a great company that people stay with them and therefore positions are not available often. They really care about their employees and go above and beyond for training as well as benefits. I really felt like I mattered to them.

Retail area coordinator (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – November 18, 2017
I enjoy my job at the Hershey company which is why I have been here as long as I have. I would say like any other job it has its issues but my colleagues are great and I enjoy being there while I work. I like that it is fast paced and always changing.
Team leader Backup (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – November 7, 2017
*Typical day includes overseeing 30 - 40 people *Learned many things about the production process, scheduling, lean and autonomous maintenance, furthered my SAP knowledge. *Hardest part is staying on top of a continuously evolving schedule *Best part is the people
42 K is salary, but you also get time and half overtime (OT is expected), car & benefits, and a yearly bonus. With car and bonus and OT, I"m making around 80K! Management is excellent and it's easy to climb the corporate ladder. They train well. This is a great place to start.
car, compensation, and flexibility
stressful particularly around Halloween. Must be self motivated.

"Temp" Production Worker (Former Employee) – Stuarts Draft, VA – October 10, 2017
Hershey hired people they referred to as "Temps," but there were not temporary positions. They were just permanent jobs with less pay than the people who had been hired in the 1980's. Temps were expected to do all the work, including being dropped into chocolate holding tanks, while "full-time" employees did little work. The job environment was extremely hot, dirty, and cut-throat.
It was a job until people found something better.
100+ degree work areas, dirty, poor management, dangerous, poor morale
Assistant Supervisor, Traffic Operations (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – October 4, 2017
Pay is incredibly uncompetitive, even for supervisors and benefits are largely nonexistent. Mid-level managers are very unorganized constantly making everything more difficult for the supervisors below them.
