    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good coworkers, amazing talent. This is probably the best cpg sales job out there. Senior management will fly in for retail meetings. You will also get a chance to go to Hershey for a week. You have a clear direction for the company and have a transparency along with openness and candor that is rare in other companies.

    Cons

    This is no longer a sales job. The product has been so successful in the last 6 years that almost all product is sold into the stores at higher levels. Unless you have independent food accounts, you will only be informing stores of what programming is in place and what will be sent to the store.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for RSR's to continue to do actual sales work as well. Otherwise, they will not be ready to do actual sales work in the future. Also, give more feedback for people interviewing. If they don't get the position, let them really know why. Don't worry so much about feelings. Ambiguity will not help anyone.


  2. "Sr. Financial Analyst"
