Easy work and they give you good hours.
People talk to you in Spanish even if you speak none. Employees aren't treated with respect. I just started, and I have to ask for days off 2 weeks in advance minimum. They won't let you go home if it's an emergency. The lunch break is 1 hour, which you don't get paid for, and you have no say in when you want it. Might not have the ability to eat for hours.
Advice to Management
When interviewing employees, make sure the employee gets to meet the manager at least some time after the interview. Hire more English speaking people. Be more respectful to the employees and their personal lives. Make sure the employees are fine with their schedule.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Citarella (New York, NY) in April 2015.
The interview process was extensive. I went through a series of phone interviews before I eventually went in for an in-person interview. The entire interview process took about 3 months. I would send an email every two weeks or so for an update and I was told to "hang in there, we have more interviews to conduct". After their most recent round, I was told I would be getting a phone call to discuss my employment. I received that call. It was very short. It simply said "Thank you for bearing with us. We've made an offer to someone else. Good luck!" and that was all. THREE MONTHS they kept me waiting! Unless you have a full time job and are willing to sit through this lengthy process and then not get the job, do not apply to this company, they do not understand how business works!
