    Pros

    The good thing about Burts Bees is that you get a four day work week 10 hours a day Monday thru Thursday

    Cons

    Bad training system that's unorganised that's created by entry level employees and if you're favoured you will move up in your skill blocks

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people stop showing favortism

    Pros

    It's a nice place to work if you are straight out of college and looking to gain experience; most people recognize the company name. The product is nice and at time you will be able to get free product.

    Cons

    They don't really care about their employees. They have MANDATORY community service, instead of allowing it to be volunteer work. When Clorox bought the company, they made a lot of changes, which didn't work very well with how BB was structured.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more.


  7. I have moved up in the business exceptionally fast.

    Pros

    The best reasons for working here is the grewat atmosphere of majority of the people and you are always busy which makes the long work hours go by fast.

    Cons

    Expected to do alot as a production associate. On top of having to do the work on the floor we have task to accomplish to progress to the next level such as job aids, job instruction break downs, and so much more.

    Advice to Management

    We as a team work real hard to make sure the product is made, packed, and shipped to the next location. It is sometimes stressful. We deal with alot already on the production floor that you do not see and many people don't speak on it. If we could focus on that which is our main job instead of loading us up with extra work like the job aids, and improvements i believe we would have a more productive and smooth day without having to worry about the extra assignments on the side.

    I worked at Burt's Bees full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Burt's Bees was for the most part almost a dream job to me. It was a great collaborative atmosphere, and I felt that my team supported each other and worked well together. I grew immensely at the company, gaining responsibility and having a manager that learned my skills and honed in on them with the opportunities she presented me. We worked in a beautiful building in Downtown Durham and we always had events happening for Burt's Bees employees to promote the culture

    Cons

    After the transition to Clorox's ERP system, there was a decline in employee satisfaction, and we lost quite a bit of our support staff because of it. Management was replaced by existing Clorox employees, sometimes making me feel that the the integrity of the brand was in jeopardy.
