    I have been working at Diamond Foods full-time

    Pros

    I realize it's all about who you work for, but I couldn't be happier with the team I work with. And the company has come out of hard times and is honestly trying to redirect its vision with heavy input from employees in developing the organizatinon's mission and values.

    Cons

    Breaking free from the past leadership style and the different cultures across locations can be challenging at times, but senior leadership is working hard to right the ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees and make them feel as if they have an opportunity to advance and have their ideas see action.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at company website. Given that I met all of the listed requirements, I wasn't surprised when I received email requesting phone screen the following day. Phone screen was by automated computer. Incredibly impersonal. I kept thinking the whole time that if the company cared this much about the first contact with potential employees, what would it be like to work there? I didn't have a lot of heart in the interview. Needless to say, I didn't hear back at all. I was surprised the computer gatekeepers couldn't bother with an automated - "we have reviewed your qualifications and will be moving on with other candidates."

Diamond Foods sells microwave popcorn under the Pop Secret brand and Kettle brand potato chips. The snack food maker sells its products to food retailers: Wal-Mart and Costco combined account for about 25% of sales. Non-retail nut customers include food processors, restaurants, bakeries and food service operators. The... More
