    I worked at Hale & Hearty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy to get employed due to high demand and LARGE turnover rates.

    Cons

    Hale and hearty is a very lucrative business so it's a shame that the benefits that come with working here is low to none. Don't expect huge bonuses or great benefits or anything above minimum wage even as a team leader instead of getting the dollar raise I was promised my pay was raised by 50 cents.

  9. "Boy oh boy."

    2.0
     

    I worked at Hale & Hearty

    Pros

    Free DELICIOUS soup & occasionally free salad.

    Cons

    I can't speak for the company as a whole, but the store I worked at was terrible. The hours were garbage, I'm talking less than to 15 hours a week, which is barely enough to pay weekly train fare. On top of that, some coworkers would treat you like DIRT and still demand respect from you. When you stand up for yourself you get reported to the manager. Everybody thought they were a manager. Lines would grow endless and customers orders would constantly get messed up. Not a day would pass without an argument over something stupid. This place is a joke. If you're someone who seeks education, respect, good vibes, and good money, this ain't the place for you.

    Cons

    Hale and Hearty has declined in in food quality and overall upper management. This company use to care about the people that work for them but not any more. They will toss you around like a rag and expect you to be ok with it.
