    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get lots and lots of hours to work and you get to work outside if you like that sort of thing. You also get free Hersheypark tickets every other paycheck if you work there.

    Cons

    Won't listen to your scheduling requests. It gets really busy. Management won't help with your problems. Mostly teens work here, and no one really takes their job seriously.

    Pros

    Great Summer Job for students
    Free Park tickets

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Also they hire minors so professionalism lacks sometimes depending on supervisors or department. Crazy hours once you hit 18 years old.

    Pros

    Good for the resume. Working for a large corporations always helps the resume.

    Cons

    There is a lot of blind-management. Meaning, decisions are made from the higher up positions when they don't really understand what is needed in that area as they are not familiar with it themselves.

    Pros

    There are alot of great individuals who work for the company and strive toward promoting the legacy of miltion Hershey. The benefits package is decent if your single.

    Cons

    Alot of the top level managers are not in tune with there employees. Pay scale is extremely top heavy. It should be similar to Hershey foods or the school. Alot of workers close to poverty.

    Advice to Management

    Take the employees who want to improve and move up in the company. Milton loved his employees and treated them well. We should start doing this more
