    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Lodge was a good work environment, I had approachable managers, very low stress at work, and the pay was fair for the work

    Cons

    Organization and restocking my area could have been smoother. The distance between my station and the managers' office made it difficult to get help during busier times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great experience worked with awesome people. It's a pretty relaxed job. Also you get free tickets for Hershey park and you get in for free.

    Cons

    Working in the hot/cold weather. Or even customers with attitudes. But other than that there's not too many bad things to say.

    Pros

    THERE WAS A LOT OF PROS ABOUT THIS JOB. FOR ONE THE TIPS WERE REALLY NICE. MANAGERS WE REALLY NICE.

    Cons

    Servers were but heads. Customers were to messy and I always had to clean after them. Most of the messy customers didn't have kids.

    Advice to Management

    Theirs nothing to say that's needed to be changed about this place for the managers. it was really great. YAY

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    GREAT discounts! Such as getting into the park for free, discounts at pretty much anything HERCO related (hotel spa, hotel rooms, dining, entertainment). I even received free concert tickets for showing my ID once. You also get to meet some great people that work and stay there. Hard work is usually recognized once management begins to notice you after a little while.

    Cons

    In the summer it gets really hectic, especially with little kids running around everywhere. And after the summer, they don't always guarantee you the hours you might want or shifts you can't work (why I stopped working there... they repeatedly scheduled me when they knew I had classes and then told me I had to find someone to work for me and it was my problem)

    Advice to Management

    I don't know?

    Pros

    Everyone's happy and easy to work with. Free park access for you and your spouse year round. Huge discounts on concerts and golf.

    Cons

    Most people here don't want to move around. This inhibits career mobility and any type of change. The IT systems here are archaic and need revamped badly. Still using payroll system from 1980s (AS400) and Office 2003.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your software, hire some young energetic and creative people and keep doing everything else the same.
