    I worked at The Honey Baked Ham Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable hours, coworkers, employee discount

    Cons

    High turnover of management, disorganization during high volumes of traffic, stressful work environment

    Advice to Management

    Find a better reservation system for the hams. Reserve specific hams under name. By not doing that, people who get to the store earlier than those who reserved it get that person's ham instead of the person that reserved it. Happened every single day and created so much stress for the customer and the worker.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Associate in North Fort Myers, FL

    I have been working at The Honey Baked Ham Company part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great resume builder. Join the seasonal staff during the holidays and get a bunch of hours. Your shifts go quick because the store is busy all day.

    Cons

    If this is your first job - you will be tired from standing all shift.

    Pros

    They have a really great work atmosphere. You make friends super quick. You come home smelling like ham which my family always loved.

    Cons

    The floor is sticky with glaze and sometimes you almost fall. Also the shoes you wear to work you'll never wear anywhere else ever again.

    Advice to Management

    Mop the floors?
