    I worked at Castle & Cooke full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, medical starts on the 1st day of the month after you are hired and the 401k matching contribution is vested immediately.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is work overload, no life. The tax department micromanages, plays favorites, and often yells at lower level employees. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to determine their own schedule.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Castle & Cooke (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Controller and CFO of the company. They were in need of someone during the budgeting process at the time and my qualifications hit a chord with them. Both were very sharp and detail-oriented individuals and they saw me as a good fit to the group. It was a tight-knit group and people worked extremely hard to get the job done.

    Interview Questions

    • This was a while ago so I don't really remember, but it was the only interview that I have gone to in my career during which I had to take an Excel and writing test. I liked the tests because it can really set you apart from the group if you performed well. And I did.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They already made an offer that I could not refuse at that point of my career.
