Customer Centric Company

Human Resource Intern (Current Employee)
Hershey, PA

I have been working at Hershey Entertainment as an intern for more than a year

ProsThe employees and managers are all outstanding. People look toward the interest of others and not only themselves. This creates a selfless and team focused culture in the company.

ConsNo matter what department you work for, you will come across issues with guests deriving from all over the east coast. Some employees might be emotional and others might be aggravated, so it is your job to assist your coworkers during these times as well as taking care of your duty.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Internship with plenty of independence

Corporate Internal Audit (Former Employee)
Hershey, PA

I worked at Hershey Entertainment as an intern for less than a year

ProsLots of independence, I was able to work from home. I was able to access the materials I needed to create the end product.

ConsVery little guidance, the supervisor left the company in the middle of the project and I was unable to get a lot of assistance. I didn't feel like I was learning from a mentor, received very little feed back. I worked with some really nice people.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to follow through with your interns with feedback. Supervisors should approve a project management timeline and stick to it. Feed back at the different phases. Also, if you are going to provide a written recommendation, follow through with it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
