Jel Sert, 1926 The Jel Sert Company was founded in 1926 and remains privately held to this day. Jel Sert's first product was a gelatin dessert mix called Jel Sert, a name derived from combining "jelly" and "dessert".
Flavor-Aid, 1929 The concept of powdered mixes was very popular in the 1920s, and led to the 1929 introduction of the Flavor Aid® line of powdered soft drink mixes.
Pop-Ice, 1963 The success of Flavor Aid in the 1950s led to the acquisition of the Pop-Ice® Company in 1963. Pop-Ice was a small company producing a unique freeze-at-home pop that offered the opportunity to enter an exciting new product category.

American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) began in 1970 by a group of parents whose children had been diagnosed with cancer. They came together to lobby for more research, and to support each other through the diagnosis and treatment of this life threatening disease at a time when very few children survived. Today, ACCO is one of the largest grassroots, national organizations dedicated to improving the lives of children and adolescents with cancer and their families. We are proud to be associated with the ACCO and the fight against childhood cancer. Our efforts focus on promoting awareness and supporting advocacy programs.
For further information on the ACCO, please go towww.acco.org or call 1-800-366-2223.
Since 1995, The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) has been raising awareness, providing education and dispelling myths about this serious disease. Too often, symptoms go unrecognized and ovarian cancer is detected too late.
Jel Sert is proud to support the fight against ovarian cancer through knowledge and awareness. Our support is in honor of those within our global community who have been affected by ovarian cancer – the survivors, patients, caregivers and the loved ones – yours and ours. Help break the silence... Talk about Ovarian Cancer.
Look for the NOCC logo and contact information on every package of Wyler's Light products.
GET INFORMED. GET INVOLVED.
The NOCC continues to expand awareness and education campaigns, and initiates new projects through the generous support of corporations, foundations and individuals.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Jel Sert Company (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.
Initial phone interview with HR, lasted about 1.5 hours with the questions ranging from my experience and work history to behavioral questions. At the end of this discussion the HR manager advised me that I would be recommended for the next interview with the next level up sales manager. That interview took place on the phone which I passed and advanced to the first in person interview. The in person interview took place about a month later to which I was then invited to the final round. The final round of interviews included four other candidates and was broken out into two sessions, one being a lunch interview. The VP of Sales and two sales managers conducted the interviews and the questions from the VP of Sales focused on understanding my work history and experience. These folks were all very professional and friendly.
