    I worked at Sunset Produce full-time

    Pros

    If you like to work in a lean, fast paced environment then this is the place.

    Lack of direction at times for completing complex projects.

    Lead by example. Be more involved with your employees. It will create better moral and engage the team for more productivity.

    I worked at Sunset Produce full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, 3 days off, decent Location

    Cons

    Only 12hr shifts standing all day one girl look tired and started to lean on her desk and was told to stand up straight by management. Freezing Cold temps 20-25 degrees, I was doing on the job training for 3 hours and couldnt feel my feet or half of my legs. Managers sat in heated offices while employees freeze their buns off ,they dont even supply heated workwear. Lots of confusion, if you are hired as an Admin its really a manager position minus the pay. Employees were coming up to my trainee asking to go to the restroom.Chaotic best describes. I quit the first day of on the job training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer heated clothing or stations for employees. Be more organized.

    I worked at Sunset Produce full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great. If only I wasn't working all the time I might be able to use them.

    Cons

    Really long hours. Salary employees can look to spend 60-70 hours a week there. Company has no idea what direction is up. Unorganized, and the upper management is fooling the owners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When your turnover is so high, did you ever wonder why? Could it be the working conditions? Or maybe take a look at your management team and realize they are not offering anything.

    I worked at Sunset Produce full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    4 day work week, free produce occasionally,

    Cons

    Virtually no pay raises except for the most deserving and even then only around 2% increase. Livonia location is the workhorse while the Canadian warehouse enjoys much more luxuries such as minimal or no weekend workdays and higher salaries. Unless you are canadian, very difficult to get into upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Present a clear path for people wanting to move up in the company and show your American workers the same courtesy you show your Canadian workers.
