    Generous vacation time off once you’ve been there a year. Unfortunately, not all days are grabted unless you earn them first.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Hershey, Pennsylvania

    Great package and offers many things, could use better vacation options

  • Jul 13, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Hershey, Pennsylvania

    Best thing is the health insurance and how comprehensive it is; worst thing is vacation and paid time off for entry-level employees.

    You don't often find matching 401K and paid vacation for part time employees. Both are great perks for part time work.

    Great benefits. While picking up medicine, a paharmacist told me she’d never seen insurance cover as much as mine did.

    great 401K, but sometimes the information is not communicated well

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Ogden, Utah

    The benefits are priced very well overall, but the amount of work is WAY too much for anybody with a family or whomever wants a life outside of work. In some cases you are working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Hershey, Pennsylvania

    The benefits are ok, but the premiums are very expensive. Hershey is all about giving back to the community, but they are not willing to take care of their employees first. Premiums for health and life insurance can be reduced significantly.
