      Pros

      I learned so much from my time with Hershey. Each team member is passionate about what they do and it makes your goals that much more exciting. I felt cared about by the company and will always remember my job there fondly.

      Cons

      This isn't a con for me but just something to let others know, you're going to be working with your hands, building display, heaving heavy boxes of candy throughout every holiday season of the year, if that doesn't sound exhilarating to you, then this job is not for you.
