    I worked at Haigh's Chocolates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Haigh's really does have the best chocolate, and they are very generous allowing staff to consume it on the premises. The stores are immaculately displayed, and merchandising is vibrant and fun to be apart of. Customers for the most part are lovely, happy and upbeat; they're in a chocolate store after all! Wonderful team structure of manager, assistant manager, and senior staff, and junior staff, so there is lots of strength, skill sharing, and always someone to turn to for help. There is always something to do!

    Cons

    Christmas and Easter is hectic and tiring and you can really work some long hours Annual leave is restrictive during traditional holiday periods Company initiatives often changed rapidly and frequently with little input from the staff who were left to implement them Senior jobs beyond store management were limited to SA residents only Operations were not cohesive from state to state

    I worked at Haigh's Chocolates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The product is great and if you have a good manager the team and store environment is great

    Cons

    Anything from area manager and above is questionable. They hire people who only want to be there for their job titles but not actually do the work. Lack of communication and support. You only know something is changing or happening when it's already put into effect.
