    I have been working at The Hershey Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Outstanding company culture: kind, compassionate, cooperative, and understanding -Best in class retail exscurion -Great opportunity to gain sales experience -Okay to make mistakes -Iconic and fun brands -Great benefits: phone service compensation, solid healthcare, car, business travel reimbursement, iPad, and more -retail execution meetings every 6 weeks or so great for bonding with teammates and identifying business goals - Free candy and clothing - Many opportunities for career advancement -Generous compensation from salary, overtime, cash bonuses, and cash equivalent sales awards

    Cons

    -Relocation necessary for promotion in retail organization, once promoted hours worked typically increases drastically -Dealing with rude managers in stores -Physical labor -At times, more of a glorified shelf stocker than a sales rep -Depending on territory, long drive times -Long hours to work in peak seasons -Certain displays for stores are sent to your house and takes up significant space -70% of the "training" is done on your own in the field, must be comfortable being uncomfortable -sometimes the only option is to "work hard" not "work smart"
