    Former Employee - Part Time Merchandiser in Lubbock, TX

    I worked at Kellogg Company part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    the hours were extremely flexible, team was very kind and understanding, great work environment, and I always loved their products which my supervisor would sometimes let me take home credited products due to broken or smashed boxes.

    Cons

    I sometimes had to work seven days a week for only two hours each day which was costing more in gas than I was earning. Other times I worked one day for ten hours it just depends really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I prefer a more certain work schedule. I do not care how long I work each day I just want to know at least a week ahead of time so I could have planned my study time better.

    Management should offer pay commensurate against sales as opposed to a flat salary.

    Pros

    In my two roles I have had within Kellogg, both of my managers have been very interested in my career development. There are plenty of opportunities to learn and grow if you have the right attitude. The culture is great, very people oriented and friendly.

    Cons

    The location is not favorable at hQ. The office is nice, but it would be better if they location was near a bigger sity.

    I have been working at Kellogg Company

    Pros

    Being in the field, independent work. That's honestly the only positive. Decent pay but with the hours worked your making minimum wage.

    Cons

    No work life balance, rude managers. Manager threatens jobs at every meeting. Management sneaks in product to stores and make you deal with it.
