    I have been working at Castella Imports full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Castella gives team members a big opportunity to grow as a person and in a career. Helping people in and outside of the company through countless ways. It is up to the individual to take this opportunity or not. I have grown so much in it and I am so thankful with the owners for this. I am here to stay. The help Castella provides to its team members is the help that other companies should give too. Castella is an example of how employees should be treated. Thank you Castella for giving me the opportunity to grow and put me in the right path in my career.

    Cons

    Communication was one of the cons that the company had. Through new processes and ideas the company has been getting better on this aspect.

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep going team! We are going in the right direction! Castella does not look at people as employees. Castella looks at people as a TEAM. We are a team and together we will make Castella stronger!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Castella Imports (Hauppauge, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Over two days, I interviewed with the VP, VP of Operations, HR Director, VP of Purchasing, and CFO. All were very professional, personal, and exceptionally friendly. I was not asked the common questions found on line but our discussion did capture the essence of my background and their mission, vision, and values.
