    I have been working at Calavo Growers (More than a year)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better initial training on system.
