Good place to work. As long as the employee does a good job, the supervisor does not insist on him/her doing more than is reasonable and safe. The supervisor asks for and factors in the employee's opinion.
Occasional lunch paid for by management.
Too few employees means extra work everyday to meet the day's goal.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – February 28, 2018
The overall working environment is great. Fast paced the way I like so I stay busy and very competitive. I learned how to run, fix and troubleshoot an machine that fills lip balm tubes with hot liquid and cool at the same time.
Workspace was relaxed, creative and fun.. Manager and coworkers were willing to teach me the job basics and beyond. Worked with very nice people and was able to work in a variety of different areas as an intern.
I mostly worked on relevant things for my future career. I learned endless amounts of tricks to improve myself as a designer. they treated my with respect as if i were one of their full time employees.
Great group of coworkers who believe in the greater good
Associate Research Fellow (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – October 31, 2017
Like many corporations there are pluses and minuses regarding working there. I was fortunate enough to work with a great group of caring people who really love and believe in the mission of Burt's Bees. The work was hard, fast paced and yes at times extremely stressful but we always met our deadlines and celebrated our accomplishments as a team.
Receptionist/Customer service (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – August 15, 2017
come in the morning make sure everything is set up for the morning meetings. Go to my desk make sure paper work is done for the day answering phone calls and attending to people at the same time. at the end of the day make sure all mail and packages are put away
A typical day was getting our assignment for the day. On some days we pack product. There are other days where I inspected product and stack product on pallets. The hardest part was not knowing if you was going to work a whole shift or not work at the next day. The co workers was great and even the supervisor was great.
Coworkers and supervisor was great to work with.
Standing for long periods and hours were unpredictable.
