    Document processes and train employees on them; hire business analysts and process analysts to recommend efficiencies and best practices to department heads.

    Pros

    Loved working there. Loved the people. Loved the management. It was a really good job. It taught me how to be a better person and a good worker.

    Slow sales, which led to closing of stores in my area which led to loss of job. Pay wasn’t great either.

    I worked at Russell Stover full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy boring job. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Especially in the south. Old crony management, buddy buddy system allows harassment in workplace. No clear direction on doing job. Management expected 50 hours of work in 40 and complained of overtime if incurred and complained of stores not being serviced if employees work 40 hours. Beware of working in the southern us.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the mouth of the south and quit covering up blatant harassment claims. Company needs purged of lots of old time management.
