A few overbearing co-workers

Decent

It was okay, was working during the winter. It mainly gets busy during the morning and then afternoon. Co workers were amazing though. One of the pros is you can eat some candy

Fast Paced but Enjoyable

I was hired as a seasonal worker for See’s. When I first started I was not trained and was quickly told what to do and learned from hands on experience. Depending on the candy, the line goes fast and there’s not a lot of room for error even for new people. After a week you get the hang of things and it becomes second nature.

Leadership needs change or training

Too many old school people working here who only have a high level position because they have been there decades. Too much turnover from new younger employees. A lot of the systems and processes are outdated. CEO message doesn’t align with what is actually happening in different offices. Only people still working there is because of need to provide for their family. If you get hired then start looking for better opportunities with better benefits. If you like the manufacturing industry then you might like it.

Great for customer interaction

Very fun and face paced. The holidays xan actually get a little crazy but it was & is a great place to work. You also can sample as much chocolate as you like per shift.

Great starting job for young students

Management is kind and friendly, and will help you if you have any questions. You'll have to be ready to move fairly quickly - it gets real busy sometimes during the holidays as a seasonal worker. Being able to eat chocolate and have a snack occasionally is nice.

Pros

Free chocolate during your shift, employee discounts, fun management

Cons

Not much growth as a holiday worker, can be boring sometimes

Dead end job with cavities

It was fun to work there until I realized working hard got me nothing in return. Free candy when you work isn’t worth no healthcare benefits or chances to move on up the ladder. Only the same four people are job assured and everyone else is rotational. A waste of time

Great Place to work

We work as a team helping customers with their candy needs and other retail items in store. Holidays are expected everywhere to be busy. Expect the long lines empty shelfs and some upset customers. thankfully candy samples are provided with full description in order to make sure that there are no nut allergies. A company that I would love to come back to one day.

Pros

Great pay, team members are like family

Such a fun work environment, always busy and staying on tasks

I loved working here, love the chocolate, the manger is really nice and the assistant manger. Shifts go by fast because it’s always busy with customers or stuff to do around the store.

Sweat shop

If you like being micro managed things changing all the time. Staff lying to you talking about you to co workers . If you like knowing more the supervisor and managers. That treat you like you have nowhere else to go. Well then this would be the place to be.

they don't care about their customers

Over barring micro managing supervisors and they don't care about their customers I cared more but because of their policies customers were not treated properly the supervisors except one are horrible do not have any ideas what they are doing! They should promote within and stop bringing people from out that doing know the system to supervise and train working in there office is a completely disorganized!

Pros

The candy is cheap for us

Cons

Everything else

Fun and easy

Fun and fulfilling work. Giving out samples and making customers happy with candy made going into work worth while. I would definitely recommend working here

Fun workplace but little room for advancement

Hours vary greatly week to week, little room for growth. Overall fun place to work and easy job. Benefits are okay, depending if the area is unionized. Uniforms do need a serious update, give the ladies some pants.

Bad hours no room for advancement

Only work seasonal here as when it’s not holiday time your hours suck. A lot is left for you do to when closing and they expect it to be done in a certain time.

Pros

Free candy

Cons

Short staffed, no hours
Was this review helpful?

fun and productive workplace

the whole staff was nice and kind not too much of a workload the only problem was rush hours when you had to pack custom boxes in very little space and if there were no rush hours then the days feel very long.
