We realize that compensation, as well as job satisfaction, are of great importance to you and your family. Hershey Entertainment & Resorts is committed to offering employees a total compensation package that is competitive, fair, flexible, and cost-effective for both the employees and the Company.
Your total compensation consists not only of the salary or wage that you are paid, but also all of the benefits in which you participate. The Company's compensation philosophy is to:
- Pay wages and salaries that are equitable in relation to the work performed and are competitive with rates paid for similar work.
- Recognize and reward outstanding performance.
- Recognize the diverse needs of our employees and provide individual choice in selecting benefits.
- Comply with guidelines established by state and federal laws.
The Compensation and Benefits Department periodically reviews benefits and the wage and salary programs to ensure their competitiveness.

- Employee Assistance Program
Hershey Entertainment & Resorts recognizes that employees may have personal concerns, related or unrelated to work, which may have a detrimental impact on the employee at home or work. Hershey Entertainment & Resorts encourages employees to seek assistance. We will make available to all full-time employees and their eligible dependents the services of an off-site, confidential employee assistance program. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides professional, confidential problem assessment, counseling and when necessary, referral services to assist employees in resolving their personal concerns.
With the right preparation, you can spend your post-career years exactly as you like: relaxing, traveling, spending time with loved ones or cultivating new interests. One of the keys to a happy retirement is laying the groundwork now for meeting your financial needs later. Hershey Entertainment & Resorts has designed a plan to help you save for your retirement by deferring a portion of your pay on a tax-deferred basis. You may save up to 50% of your pay and invest in several types of investment options. In addition, Hershey Entertainment & Resorts matches a portion of your contribution.
Hershey Entertainment & Resorts believes that our employees should have the opportunity to use and benefit from the services, products and merchandise that the Company provides to the public.

This program is available at different levels for all employees of Hershey Entertainment & Resorts, and their spouse or domestic partner.
Hershey Entertainment & Resorts realizes that success is the key to our growth, and that success is only achieved when we work together as a team. In addition to sharing in the work, we also believe each employee should share in the rewards of our success. Hershey Entertainment & Resorts recognizes that employees are a vital part of the success of the Company. The Partners in Performance Plan was designed so that the Company could share a portion of the profits that exceed cash flow budgets with eligible employees after the completion of a successful year.
