Not so sweet
Category Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Bayamón, PRApril 16, 2018
This is a place in which you learn a lot and have great experiences. All starts very sweet but it can end very sour. Usually you don't get the whole picture because you are being lied to. They create false expectations only to fire you because you are not longer needed.
Still, it could be a better place to work.
Pros
Free candy, pay and benefits
Cons
No clarity in terms of career advancement

Laborer Food Service and Security (Former Employee) –  Robinson, ILMarch 28, 2018
I was on as a temp here. It was good work but layoffs occurred a lot. As a temp you never knew if you were going to work the next day or not. It was good to learn different machines. I actually worked in packaging, bulk, quality control, the cooker, and beltline a couple times. It is good to get variety. All the supervisors for each area were very accomodating and willing to teach new ideas to temp workers and also permanent employees. I also worked security here through a contracted security company. Enjoyed working with shipping, learning the functions of the whole factory and people were friendly and personable.
Pros
Fun atmosphere, learning, safety and health, food sanitation
Cons
Noise level, use of back braces for lifting positions

Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PAMarch 19, 2018
Great place to work with highly educated and innovative team members who are committed to delivering quality work and competitive new products.

The work life balance is wonderful and the management is highly supportive of your continued education, family life and career goals.

The flexible work schedule is great for times you need to work from home for personal or otherwise unavoidable circumstances.

The benefits and salaries are highly competitive and inclusive.

Good company but low salaries
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Hershey, PAMarch 17, 2018
Good company but doesn't pay employees very well. Great part time job for someone who just wants to supplement their income. Products are highly recognized and easy to sell.

The customers were just the icing on the cake
sales associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 15, 2018
Sometimes you would get bad customers and then you would get the customers who completely made your day. There was no employee manager confidentiality, if you told your manager something by the time you were clocking out of your shift everyone on the sales floor knew your business.Hopefully since the new relocation they ahve also renovated the employees and their attitudes.
Pros
Good money good place to work if you like chocolate and plaenty of people
Cons
If you are a private person and have reasons why on certain days you would need time off, Then again this was in the year of 2012.

Fast Paced Job focused on growth
Retail Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 4, 2018
The role is "boot camp" in the Hershey Company. You will learn a lot about the company, the business, and the products. It is a great place to get your feet wet in sales, while having plenty of opportunities to grow. Biggest part though, you MUST be relocatable.

Who doesn't love candy
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Erie, PAFebruary 25, 2018
Typical day was visiting your scheduled clients and stores to sell candy.

I learned that not just the brand name but the service that you provide can make a difference as well. This was stressed by management and they did everything they could to help you succeed.

Probably the best workplace culture I have ever been around.

The hardest yet easiest part of the job was representing the company in the best way possible.
