    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Lodge was a good work environment, I had approachable managers, very low stress at work, and the pay was fair for the work

    Cons

    Organization and restocking my area could have been smoother. The distance between my station and the managers' office made it difficult to get help during busier times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free tickets and entry to the park, make a lot of awesome friends, growth opportunities are easy and frequent, friendly staff, not a terribly difficult job

    Cons

    management could use additional training on HR, there's a big lack of professionalism in this department, occasional rude guests, long hours without the permission of the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't choose obvious favorites among employees, don't be rude or snarky when an employee asks a question, don't talk about certain employees behind their backs. This management could definitely use some additional HR training.

    I have been working at Hershey Entertainment

    Pros

    You meet good friends, free admission to the park and some other parks in he region.

    Cons

    If you get into trouble, they don't listen to your side of the story, you just get punished and thats the end of it. That sucks and they need to cut that out!!!!!

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They are very forgiving and you learn a lot and have fun. i would recommend this job to almost anyone, and I am fairly certain they would enjoy it.

    Cons

    I worked in founders circle and the only bad thing I can say about it is that I had to deal with stupid parents... You should not be getting on a ride that looks like it was made for a 4 year old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Hershey Entertainment part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Potential for Good Pay & park benefits. Some mid level managers are good.

    Cons

    Rather Conservative and not friendly or conscious of cross-cultural communication. Basically I had a very rude and ignorant boss at one of the restaurants at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center. He was hostile and prejudice towards me. Needless to say, I didn't stay long. His actions included, repeatedly putting me at the bottom on the totem pole in terms of seating guests; almost every single day when I worked there, other servers would have 10-20 guests for lunch where I was lucky to reach 7-10.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Curb Patriarchal cultures among mid-level management.
