    I have been working at Purdys Chocolatier part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Purdys is a very intimate, family run company. I feel very well cared for and appreciated working there. They give plenty breaks, plenty raises and your start pay if above minimum wage. The CEO, the chocolate scientist and even president of the company have came to the store personally to meet their employees and make sure first hand everything is running smoothly. They have a sustainable farming system, they are active fundraisers, everything is just wonderful.

    Cons

    Honestly the only con about working here is eating too much chocolate. Also, customers always have the same jokes... "How are you so thin working here ?!" Or "I'd eat all the chocolate. I don't know how you do it."

    Advice to Management

    Keep being great and compassionate to your teams and you will keep running a great company.

    Pros

    Seemingly big but it's not improving. You may wanna look for a company that has more opportunity growth.

    Cons

    HR is very unprofessional, and no room for opportunity growth. Things are always the same and nothing really new.

    Advice to Management

    Get better HR supervisor. Upper management really should look at how HR is doing their jobs.
