    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of overtime which makes the pay even more. You get a car and full benefits which is nice.

    Cons

    Lots of heavy lifting, yelled at by Walmart employees, all that matters is your numbers. You have no interations with anyone but Retailers who don't want to talk to you.

    Advice to Management

    Only make RSR's be sellers, not merchandisers.
