    I have been working at Transpacific Foods full-time

    Pros

    If you like to brown nose, and your skills are sleeping and don't want to waste your brain cells thinking, this employer is for you.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Old farts running the puppet show. It's a shell company transferring money to oversea so no working knowledge needed. No growth opportunities or can learn anything from anybody because all are morons.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking trash behind your employees' back and bad mouth every single one come into the door. Take a serious 101 management course from higher education institution, jungle class doesn't count.


  2. Save yourself the time. Run.

    I have been working at Transpacific Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Farm is absolutely beautiful. People and staff are nice! Salary is good (but doesn't have any other benefits, not even health insurance).

    Cons

    Leadership. Like a similar post said 'business plan'. They need one and a considering the fact they are almost solvent. They have an awful reputation in the industry so doing business with vendors, dealers, buyers is difficult as they have a bad taste in their mouth from previous management (I was spoken to quite rudely by a vendor because of a previous encounter with the owner). They have some very questionable business practices that seems to lead you to believe they will cut costs at any avenue.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees better, install a work-life balance system, install a basic safety plan, spend time training the employees (any amount of time is better than the current system of nothing!), actually care about your employees well-being and safety!, stop lying (to employees, vendors, buyers, etc) it is just bad business!, and health insurance is a nice thing to offer when your employees make minimum wage working 60+ hours a week.

    Small company can be a good place to learn different aspects of the business but poor management and working environment

    Pros

    The small size of the company makes it easier to learn the different aspects of an export/import wholesale business as long as you are willing to learn and do the hard work

    Cons

    There is limited opportunity to grow, poor information sharing within the company, poor work/life balance and management can be unprofessional. Many employees felt unappreciated and treated unfairly. There were very little training given.
