    I have been working at The Hershey Company as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary
    New Facility - Equipment Constantly being upgraded
    Friendly Co-workers
    Team Resources
    Experience

    Cons

    Management Commitment and Knowledge (Mostly Veteran Hires w/o Experience)
    Employment Opportunities - HR Disconnect from Plant
    Corporate Disconnect from Plant
    Stress - Demanding Environment
    Excessive Mandatory Overtime
    Future Outlook - Inevitable Buyout (The way it's going)

    Advice to Management

    Try to connect those working on 'the hill' to those working in the plant. A lot of excessive project money is thrown around without actually knowing where it is going.

    Seems like Hershey lost touch of what it originally set out to be. After this recent expansion, many of the employees feel that the company will not exsist in 50 years. Poorly designed 'Next Century Project'. J.P. made his career selling water so you get the sense of where Hershey is going..

    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It looks good on your resume if you can stay employed long enough. Senior Management don't know anything about the work they are managing so they run through employees every few months. One position has had eight people in it the last five years! It's so upsetting to see these men demeaned like this. It's upsetting to those of us they make play along.

    Cons

    Too many to mention
    1) During the lengthy and disorganized hiring process they offer you a job that doesn't exist. I moved here for a job that I never got to do. I was relegated to jobs that were years beneath me or areas of expertise I have never seen, then put on a "Plan", I got sick and they fired me.
    2) When they are done with you, you are a nothing to them. They don't care about your life or how much damage they have done to it.
    3) Its all about protecting the Directors who are incompetent

    Advice to Management

    Its not wonder there are class action suits against you. If Mr. Hershey were alive today, I just can't imagine how disgusted he would be with your performance and lack of humanity. Child labor? Really? Was that Mr. Hershey's vision. The way you treat people that have entrusted their lives to you is so egregious you should be ashamed. Oh and you hatred for While Males over 50...why even interview them. Or do you just enjoy making their life a living hell and firing them?
