    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 advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN AND RESPOND! There have been countless times I would reach out for help and never get a response. I would say they are basically nonexistent unless something bad happens.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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)
    -Third interview was five hours. It was not scheduled appropriately and I had to wait in the lobby while another candidate was interviewed.

    Interviewers seemed unprepared and were often late and disorganized. One interviewer bad mouthed their prior employer. I got varying answers on expectations of the role. The job changed while I was interviewing and I felt too uncertain to want to continue.

    Interview Questions
    • 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
