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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, low stress, ability to run your own territory, well known company/brands, jobs are everywhere across the country, great job to learn the ins/out of retail.

    Cons

    Is extremely difficult to get promoted because there are a lot of people applying for a limited amount of jobs. It also seems like the best reps aren’t always promoted. It can be so difficult to get promoted that a lot of great reps end up leaving the company. If you do get promoted, you have to move.

    Sometimes we feel like we are given incorrect information and/or information that changes without giving us any notice making us look less credible in stores.
