    Pros

    I worked in customer relations. Fundamentally, this meant first-line consumer contact for hundreds of products: everything from the storied tea to cosmetics. I love talking to people and have a passion for customer service, meaning this was the perfect place for me. Since most consumers love the products, about 80% of the calls were actually compliments! Happy clients are always a big plus anywhere. Discounts on those yummy products was also a plus. Discounts on those yummy products was also nice.

    Cons

    Given the mantra from upper-ups that customer relations was "literally the most important department after production" (evidenced by the absurd number of products we were charged with representing—I conducted many a long "consultation" with people about facial cleansers with nothing more than a company script in front of me), it was ever the mystery that we were some of the lowest paid (hourly, with a steady rotation of temps). Having moved on to become a business owner and employer myself, I've learned that happy employees mean happy customer contact, thus better and more business.

    Advice to Management

    One of two things should be addressed: be honest with your folks about what they're there for and pay them accordingly.

    Pros

    Great People. Hain-Celestial is the leader in the natural and organic food industry. Great company to work for, lots to learn and know.

    Cons

    This company is a great one to work for but very hard to get on permanently as a temp. Most employees are hired for 9 months out of the year, laid off for three and hired back again perpetually, but those are production workers. As a Customer Service Rep., I was informed that if I was there for a year they would either have to hire me or let me go. During my 11 and a half months at this job, 4 other temps had come and gone before they had been there 6 months. I was the only one left and hopeful. But, I was let go for no reason 2 days before my birthday. :-(

    Advice to Management

    What is the most sustainable solution?

    Pros

    Generally good atmosphere. Some salaries are OK. Not many layers of management to deal with. Generally friendly atmosphere. OK about personal and health issues. You can talk to upper management if you push the issue. Again, small company atmosphere can be positive.

    Cons

    Static jobs no movement, not large company. Some of the decisions are erratic. Old systems, not willing to move forward. This was an issue before the economy tumbled. Too slow to get rid of problem divisions. Upper management is very well compensated but the lower level jobs are poorly paid. Small company atmosphere can be stifling as well as positive.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with what is going on internally.
