I have been working at Lindt & Sprüngli full-time (more than a year)Pros
I love working with happy people and selling people chocolate = happy customers. It's a very straight forward job. Decent pay, good bonuses, PTO, and good benefits.Cons
The worst part about this job is the hours but that's true for any retail job. I would also say the POS is a bit confusing. Upper management is very neglectful. Very little opportunities advancementAdvice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Lindt & Sprüngli.Interview Details
It was a long, drawn out process that was unorganized.
-Initial interview in person with the recruiter
-Second interview with hiring manager (eventually was told he was no longer the hiring manager)

- The majority of the questions were to describe what something meant on my resume. I had very few behavioral type questions, even from HR Answer Question
