    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at CJ Group full-time (Less than a year)


    The best benefits I've ever had at any company. My 401k is matched and gym. Lots of food involved with lunches and snacks covered by the company. All my coworkers are really nice and treat each other with kindness. I don't think I've ever heard anyone yell at anyone, unlike a lot of companies I've been at.


    Everyone works long hours. There is an expectancy for you to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire more people so we get some help. More company wide events with the other affiliates.
