    I have been working at Hain Celestial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Understanding management, can surf the net all day in between calls. Good hours and the trainers are willing to help and are great.

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism, after your 1 year consider yourself fired. Also don't get pregnant or say you are, as they will fire you almost instantly.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites and you may end up boosting morale, not having to use a temp service, and have quality and efficient employees who may want to stick around.

    I worked at Hain Celestial full-time

    Pros

    - Smart, talented people work there - They mean well in their quest to be an industry leader in the natural and organic CPG business - Work/life balance isn't that bad

    Cons

    - They don't invest in their employees, even the most talented ones - Incredibly (embarrassingly) late on paying out annual bonuses year after year for no credible financial reasoning - Company culture doesn't really exist, except that there's a strong focus on sales and dollars - Very little investment in the brands over time

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see this company start to invest in their staff and the number of talented people they employee. Also, committing to paying out bonuses on time would be a huge improvement.

    I worked at Hain Celestial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work, great environment and teamwork was always a plus. Some supervisors we're really great. Aways asked questions, gave good complements and taught you things you didn't know how to do.

    Cons

    The cons about this job was the negative Co workers and professionalism. Some supervisors were also unprofessional. Some even came in drunk or high and didn't care what you we're doing or did that shift. Sometimes it was mayhem. I like a organized shift that runs smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors should always act and behave professional. Lead by example, Take charge of the situation and run a shift smoothly. Supervisors shouldn't have to be supervised. My advise to management is that if you guys choose a supervisor, make sure this person Can be effective, productive, and professional. If so, i believe that there would be less accidents in the work environment, more production and teamwork with happy workers.

    I have been working at Hain Celestial part-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced work environment; great opportunity to build customer service skills; opportunities for growth and improvement; positive work environment and atmosphere, awesome and supportive co-workers and managers/supervisors

    Cons

    Very much the same work every day; can become monotonous or boring over time. It's important to build customer relationships to keep work interesting and fun every day.

    Advice to Management

    Some employees seem to struggle to find the balance between not taking work seriously enough and taking it too seriously. Some staff should be better trained to help eliminate repeated silly mistakes and improve efficiency.

    Pros

    Hain is a wonderful place to work for a recent college graduate and for anyone at any level looking to grow within their field and gain hands on experience. It's wonderful to work for a company where you can gain hands on experience - which is invaluable for a recent college grad - at a company that shares your passion. Good benefits, decent salary, treats employees fairly.

    Cons

    More flexibility with work hours and the ability to work remotely from home

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, training was OK. I worked from home, so that was a great perk.

    Cons

    I worked for this company for a few years and would have described myself as a company man. I loved working for this company, until they decided to lay off their entire outside sales force which I was a part of. For the past 5+ years the hain direct sales force hit record sales, hit bonus goals for the past 3 years, and then they sold us down the river to a brokerage company. Days after getting laid off, Simon announced the purchase of a 25$million company based in canada. I lost my job, along with 70 other people, some of which had been here for 25+ years when the company was formed. My advice is to enjoy this job while it last, because even though you may be the best sales team in the natural channel, you can still be sold down the river to make profits look better.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in you employees. They are the heart and soul of your company. you must remember that you have the ability to buy $25million companies simply because your employees do such a good job. With the layoff of the Hain direct sales team and moving to a brokerage system, you have lost the people that believed in your brand the most. With that, you lost your competitive edge.
