I have been working at Del Monaco Foods full-time (less than an year)Pros
I have only worked here for two months but I felt right at home from the beginning. The owners and executive team are extremely invested in the people that work with them and are focused on creating an awesome company culture. Training consists of complete immersion into the operations of the business, so I had the privilege of working side by side with each employee during this time. Despite being busy, each person took the time to welcome me to the company and make sure I understood the role that they were performing. The company is small enough that you know everyone's name but run in a very professional way.Cons
So far, no cons to speak of. Turnover is lower than I have seen at previous companies that I have worked for.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at Del Monaco Foods in March 2014.Interview Details
Because I was an out-of-town candidate, I had three phone interviews before being invited on site to meet in person with the team. Each person gave me a company background as well as their history with the company, had their own questions and was extremely helpful and informative during our conversation. I completed an online leadership questionnaire and a profile (consisting of resume, work history, feedback from current and past supervisors, etc).
When I did meet with the team in person, it was in a group setting. I was given a tour by the HR team when I arrived and then met with five individuals in a panel for about two hours (members of the team I was joining as well as the CEO). Several members of the executive team took me out to lunch, which was enjoyable. Afterwards, I got the chance to sit with members of the team and ask questions.
I was also asked to take some skills tests (Microsoft Office) and provide references prior to receiving an offer. It was made clear to me from the beginning of the process that the CEO would want to speak with my current superior towards the end of the process. Even though he did so post-offer, this was extremely nerve-wracking, as you can imagine. However, what a great move by the company to make sure they get honest feedback about me from my most recent boss, who certainly wasn't thrilled that I was leaving!
Offer was contingent upon background and drug test. HR very kindly arranged for me to do so at a facility that was local to me.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsTransparent and responsive.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
- None of the questions were unexpected - the most "difficult" aspect of the interview was being interviewed by five people at once. I certainly felt up to the task but I did feel a bit tired from answering question after question! Answer Question
