    Pros

    Lee Cole-an amazing person to head this fantastic company. It was a pleasure to have worked for him all those years ago. This company was such a wonderful place to work. Mr. Cole really cares about the well being of every single employee and genuinely wants to see the best return for every single gower. We had an awesome team of employees in Santa Ana, like family we all were. Some of the best employment years of my life were spent with Calavo. Oh and the free avocados every week were pretty sweet too.

    Cons

    Relocation of our office to Santa Paula. It was too far for me & thus ended my time with Calavo.

    Pros

    Paid holiday, vacation, PTO, pretty good benefits and incentives offered by company. I enjoy my regular "9 to 5" hours.

    Cons

    Communication is lacking between departments, lack of job training when you start, I had to learn the systems through trail and error and coworkers helping I never got an official review of program we use on a daily basis. Human resources isn't very proactive when you have an issue.
