CandidateApplied as Sales representative at Hershey Foods Corp in Redlands, CA in 2018 and did not receive an offer.

Suggestions for improvement

The automated email response to applicants makes people like me who have a ton of experience feel like a number. I've applied a few times to Hershey and have yet to even talk to to anyone. Clearly my age or being more technical might be something they're not looking for or want to afford.

CandidateApplied as Iowa sales position. at The Hershey Company in Sun Prairie, WI in 2018 and did not receive an offer.

Suggestions for improvement

Sales position in Iowa. I applied. You rejected because i am older. (though, not specific, you implied. ) Older people with tons of life experience can do much more than youthful idiots walking around with an i-phone in their face.
You should have brought me in for an interview, at least with your Iowa supervisor. I am passionate about selling Hershey products in that area of Iowa. Interview this retired G.I. or continue to lose business due to poor sales representation.

CandidateApplied at Hershey Foods Corp in Redlands, CA in 2016.

Interview questions

I understand that Hershey is probably looking for younger candidates and can appreciate where they are coming from but I believe they may be missing out on some excellent people by having such a narrow scope.
