    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is always room for growth. The company recently build a new DC in Olive Branch MS. Everyone is willing to help one another. Bonus was an added plus, and the team I worked with are very supportive.

    Cons

    The training process was improving right before I left, but I see great opportunities in this area for both DC in MS. I feel that the long hours are contributed to this reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to listen and understand the process fully before making changes. Understand how the change may effect other departments before it's considered. Take time to ask question and most importantly, stay positive and be open to learn and you will do great.

    Decent place, but I felt like I was in high school again.

    I worked at Helen of Troy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very nice facility. Great cafeteria.

    Cons

    Office gossip and politics made me feel like I was in high school again. There was a lot of back-biting, gossip, and just overall kid stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from within, and provide more training to the office staff. While I was there, I felt stifled and I didn't feel like I could grow within the company. Also, pay more competitive salaries. The job I took right after working here paid twice as much, so I felt like I was severely underpaid while here.

    New management will make it better in many ways. The old leadership did care greatly about the people.

    Working with another companies brand through licence is not easy at all.

    I worked at Helen of Troy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People: caring people, hard workers, taking care of each other. Company used to celebrate so much more with the employees at holidays, but that has fallen off.

    Cons

    Need logistics leadership. Can't hire someone who says they know what they are doing, need a strategic thinker with innovation as a key part of their mindset. No strategy, just get it shipped no matter what! Learn how to manage inventory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a VP that is innovative to take on logistics. The problem is not the product, it's getting that product to the customer. Also, get back to your classic holiday parties, that's one of your biggest perks!!!
