    Pros

    Great place if you don't want to live up to your potential.

    Cons

    Incompetent and unqualified management. I have had 3 managers in 2 months. Poor pay for amount of hours expected of you. 50+ hour workweeks are standard and Chiquita does not pay overtime. High turnover and no advancement opportunities. Cannot use vacation or sick days without being pegged as the person who doesn't want to be there.

    Pros

    Everyone is treated the same way … like crap

    Cons

    I'll get straight to the point … Chiquita is a horrible place to work. Management is plagued with incompetence and does not care about employees. Forget about having work/life balance. Since the latest round of layoffs, employees are expected to work nights, weekends, holidays … all with no additional compensation or appreciation!!
