    Due to the nature of the business, a lot of job opportunities require relocation. The company does a good job of accommodating where they can though.

    I worked at The Hershey Company part-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with, fun work

    Cons

    Too many employees for the number of available shifts

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that there are an appropriate number of employees for the number of available shifts; people who were working there full time were not able to get enough hours

    Cons

    Hershey does not treat their employees well. Very much an "up or out" mentality with a forced ranking. When the company has not been doing well in meeting company goals and metrics - you will see lower level management blamed and people are often forced out.

    Work a lot!!!! Not a good balance of work and family life. Have most holidays off, but not always guaranteed to get them off depending on what line you work on.
