Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Flowery Branch, GA – April 13, 2017
The company has great policies and benefits such as vacation time and sick pay. The company really makes sure the associates are able to manage a good work life balance. The culture is very slow. Some of the production equipment is outdated. There is no formal classroom training program so all associates are paired with others in an effort to learn their jobs.

Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Flowery Branch, GA – October 26, 2015
Managers do not micro manage you. Everyone is very friendly and enjoys working here. No complaints at all. Co-workers are very helpful and intelligent. I enjoyed learning new things and progressing in my role.
middle manager (Former Employee) – Chciago – June 9, 2015
Unhappy people work here.. management used to be good, then top people started leaving... they promoted unqualified people to Director and Sr. Director positions... category is down, and Sr VP's became vicious and uninspired. When the new Directors took over the company, they brought in people who were also unqualified, and the category remains in the dumpster. There is a severe lack of inspiration in the company from all departments... the environment is cut-throat and back-stabbing. Innovation and advertising doesn't connect, and nobody knows how to fix it.
Middle managers are rarely rewarded or promoted. Bonuses are nonexistent. And the cafeteria food is stupidly bad. Avoid this company at all cost.
Key Account Manager (Current Employee) – San Juan, PR – November 12, 2014
Great co workers, and great work-life balance. Good managements who respects your life, very balanced, but at same time you learn a lot from them. Is fun work atmosphere. Is great to represent such a great brands. Not so good to have free candy all the time....
Work-Life balance, great co-workers
pay can be better compared to the market. Small structure so job advancement are very limited.
My first two years with Wrigley was great but then my supervisor was terminated in a restructor and with the new supervisor it all went down hill.
Independent Merchandising Contractor (Former Employee) – Worked in five states – October 15, 2013
I drove 4-10 hours and worked 6-8 hours at a store in one of five states resetting and retagging front-end candy and sometimes aisle candy and selling shippers. in 2010 and 2011 I worked two jobs.
My current manager is a wet behind the ears kid who possesses little to no respect or curtsy. His relational and communication skills are lacking and he doesn't know what "going to bat for" a highly respected field worker means. Need I say more.
I am a self-motivated employee who worked alone.
The hardest part of the job was staying awake driving during an 18 hour day and after three to four days like that it was really difficult.
I enjoyed the store managers beaming expression of satisfied gratitude after I reconstructed his demolished front-end and aisle candy.
I verify my line is set up properly. I make sure all settings are accurate. I make sure my line is staffed by the temp service. I operate the machine at the fastest speed possible without comprimising the quality. I have learned how to make adjustments on my machine that have allowed me to set production records. The management team fosters teamwork and accountability. I have a good rapport with my co-workers. I treat them all with respect and in turn, they all work hard on my line to help me reach my production goals. The hardest part of my job is the frustration of my production being dependent on the quality of the candy produced by other people. Production is slow when the quality of the candy doesn't meet standards. The most enjoyable part of the job is your production accomplishments at the end of the day.
