    I worked at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly and will often lend a hand. Providing recommendations is fairly straightforward with the comprehensive guides made by the other concierge. Concierge tasks are fairly regular: selling park tickets, providing transportation, scheduling room service.

    Cons

    The work can be stressful during peak hours. Customers will often contact you first when there is a problem with their experience. Your ability to do your job outside of regular task will heavily depend on building relationships with the other staff, and that may take some time. Guests will make requests that depend on other departments and their ability to free up often unavailable resources.

    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.

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts for less than a year

    Pros

    Learned different aspects of HR, including payroll, staffing and progressive disciplinary action. Received 2 park tickets every pay period, equaling 10 tickets total for the summer.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, no one on the same page,four supervisors each giving a different answer to the same question, leading to the 20 interns to each have a different thought process to how to go forward with an job duty. $75 deposit for uniforms, that must be worn while the park is operational.

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay for an entry level job after including free park tickets. Most of the managers were good.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours aren't very good. In the finance department you sometimes have to work overnight. Switching from night shift to day shift every week or two weeks isn't very fun.

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Perks have been reduced year to year but the company still gives employees a set number of free Hershey Park tickets. Employee discount can also be used if purchasing park tickets.

    Cons

    Tipped employees are overstaffed making it difficult to earn a living. Management's response is to get another job. If great health benefits are a necessity (terminally ill parent, disabled spouse), inconsistent scheduling makes it nearly impossible to get a second job if you do try to compensate for the lack of income (loss of income during the off season).
