I have been working at Clement Pappas & Co. full-time (More than 5 years)
Entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged. Employees are expected to make decisions for the business as if they were a business owner. Business key results and objectives are shared with employees and they are expected to know how they impact them. New CEO is serious minded and expects leaders to perform and deliver results, but he still genuinely cares about people. I have worked in the CA plant for 7 years and it's in a great location. The mgmt. team is home grown and most have been there for over 5 years. They are results driven, but care about the employees. Our benefits package is better than many large companies. Employees have great plan options for medical, dental, and vision coverage at lower out of pocket cost. A diverse customer base and product mix keeps it really interesting. There is rarely a boring day. Seems like something new is happening all the time.
If you don't like change, it's not for you. Change is a big part of this dynamic organization. Things are changing all the time.
Advice to Management
In life you might not always get what you pay for, but you most certainly will pay for whatever you get. Nothing is free, so you must be prepared to pay for things you passionately want.

I applied online. I interviewed at Clement Pappas & Co. (Seabrook, NJ) in February 2014.
Phone interview with Clement Pappas HR. Interviewer called and asked for me and then immediately started asking questions. She did not ask if this was a good time to discuss the position. I stopped her and asked if she could give me a minute to get my notes and bring up the job details.
- The interviewer was only concerned about the amount of time spent on the production floor of my previous jobs. She said that their expectations were higher and I tried to explain that it was a different position. Answer Question
