    90% of the opportunities are in central PA. It’s a nice place to live, but isn’t for everyone, especially young, single professionals.

    Pros

    Nothing is positive to say about Hershey as a Company. They pray people to relocate and harass them for money when they sign leave because of poor conditions.

    Cons

    I wouldn't encourage my worst enemy to start employment at this facility, better yet, not The Hershey Company at all. Corporate has ignored the Memphis location for years, allowing for their employees to suffer under poor management from the Senior Leadership Team. Employees wrote letters, called the hotline, and even went to Corporate HR, and nothing was done!! Over the last five years, the turnover rate has doubled, if not tripled from the hourly associates. In the last year, almost every Supervisor and/or Manager has left, and Corporate still didn't take action. I think they ignored this facility because it is predominately African American. If you look at the Corporate History of The Hershey Company, African American leadership is not prominent!! And, if you look throughout the company African American's are leaving left and right, especially in Memphis. So Corporate and Hershey Memphis got creative and decided to target leadership from a distance. Let's trap them into a relocation contract to make them stay! People wanted to stay because they were bound to a contract, but they were miserable because of the treatment from the facility's management team. You had Senior Leadership cursing at Supervisors and Managers, mistreated and merely abusing their power! I've witnessed Senior Leadership belittle and humiliate Supervisors, Managers, and Operators. Corporate was WELL aware! And, as they ignored it, it became apparent that Corporate was a contributor to it as well. As people continued to drop off, including those bound to relocation contracts, Corporate started to show up and question why so many people were leaving the company. They ended up releasing some of the Senior Leadership "bullies," but it was too late. So many knowledgable/good people had already left. The Supervisors or Managers that were relocated were expected to pay back the relocation payments when they shouldn't have because of the conditions at this facility. For the few people that are left, watch your back. Corporate is coming to whip all you little brown people in management out of that facility! For those of you that are thinking about leaving, you only have to pay back relocation if you're black! So if you're not black, leave.
