I worked at Russell Stover full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The money was decent, the candy is good.

Cons

too many hours with hiring criteria being too strict to easily hire more help. generally holidays mean little to no days off with ridiculously long hours. overtime money is nice, but not at the expense of general well-being and overall happiness as a person.

Advice to Management

trust your employees to do the right thing, less micromanagement

    I worked at Russell Stover full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Russell Stover Candies is a very secretive company which has little experience in the Canadian marketplace, which if you are selling their products makes it hard to get any sales support.

    Cons

    This company was backwards in it's thinking , it's product line and certainly in the quality of people it hired. There was so much political rear kissing that it made it hard to stand being employed by them.

    Advice to Management

    We're in a new millennium, get with it or you'll lose what ever tiny bit of market share you have in Canada.
