    I have been working at Hint Water full-time

    Pros

    I love wearing my hint-branded clothes because people will frequently stop me in a store or on the street to tell me how much they love hint, how its helped them get healthy and how much they appreciate that we make it. There are not a lot of jobs where the customers will pump you up that much. They really care about this product/brand.

    Another great thing about Hint is that they promote from within as much as possible and the company is growing, so there's a lot of opportunity to stick around and grow your career here instead of having to switch jobs to move up.

    Hard work and a great attitude are rewarded.

    Cons

    Its not easy selling water. Its heavy and retailers are not always familiar with the product or the idea of unsweetened flavored water (although that's changing a lot lately). Then again, that's what I'm hear to take care of.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up until the whole world knows about hint.

    I worked at Hint Water (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good People, solid product. Price point is a little high and marketing (at the time) was still fairly unsophisticated.

    Cons

    Driving a ton, in store demos not the best. The van you have to drive around is a little ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than street give-aways, target events and specifically charity events.

    I have been working at Hint Water (More than a year)

    Pros

    -LEarn sales and negotiations skills under the wing of an Area sales Manager
    -The perk of walking/driving around New York City in the summer while getting paid 15/hr is very sweet
    -Very friendly company, intimate size, met the CEO on 2 occasions (one was a Yankee game she took us all too)
    -At the end of the day, the product your selling is really delicious and is good for people (water) so you don't feel grief for pushing the sale

    Cons

    -Sometimes expenses (tolls, parking (parking tickets), gas, metro card) is not fully reimbursed or is reimbursed with stipend, but you do get most of it back.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the Hint brand to the top!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Hint Water part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked under someone who really knew about grassroots marketing.
    All the free Hint water you can drink.
    Very easy work days.

    Cons

    Start up company with not enough money to make a difference.
    No culture.
    Better ideas could have been put to use to promote brand more effectively.

    Advice to Management

    It's okay to promote from within, if and when the talent is there.

    Pros

    It was truly a great experience working at Hint over the summer. The leadership was really helpful and the pay was great. I would highly recommend this internship.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that it was only an internship and not a full time position.

    I worked at Hint Water as an intern

    Pros

    Excellent product that is easy to sell. The company is very welcoming. Owners Kara & Theo are wonderful people and take the time out of their busy summer schedule to meet each and every intern. Lots of independence allowed in internship.

    Cons

    I was never notified that I would be using my personal car and driving for the entire internship. There is no office, all meetings among interns and managers were at local coffee shops. If you work better in groups this internship is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs work on lower levels of management
