I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Excellent benefits, company culture, great work life balance, excellent senior leadership. As a Retail Sales Rep you are responsible for your own territory. There are endless opportunities within your territory, it's up to you how creative you are and how much you want to excel at your job. Additional benefits include company car and ipad.

Cons

Driving about 400 miles/week. Career opportunities have gotten much more competitive in previous years making it harder to get noticed. There is really only one position most RSR's can move forward to if you were hired directly out of college. Maybe in the future that will change.

    Pros

    People, brands, social responsibility, environmentally friendly (9 ZWL plants), global expansion/growth, opportunities for education and advancement, corporate culture, diversity

    Cons

    I gained 10 lbs in my first year! Dang, there's chocolate everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Philanthropic work is very personally rewarding to employees and keep trying to engage employees with "team spirit." I respect and admire the leadership of this company and that's why I want to retire here. Best company I've ever worked for and I've been working for 30 years in my career ... spent my last 4 years at Hershey and I'm never leaving :-)
