    I have been working at Chef Works full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is an amazing, dynamic, fast growing company. A real success story and most employees feel very proud to play a part in such success. Lots of great colleagues with an admirable corporate culture.

    Cons

    Working hours are long and there is no room to hide – mediocrity isn't accepted and everybody is expected to play a significant role and make a real contribution. For some, such an environment wouldn't be an ideal choice.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve processes and communication across all departments. Best practice benefits all.

    Growing environment with lots of challenges, perfect for personal and professional growth.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for! They take care of you with great benefits and good pay. Lots of internal movement for all levels of employees. Fun family environment where work/life balance is a part of the culture. The company cares for its employees but you are expected to work hard. Love the environment and my coworkers and would recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    No company is perfect but I can honestly say there are no real cons to working for Chef Works.

    Pros

    Pros.
    Have been working at Chef Works for a couple years now in the Inside Sales department. For the most part I’ve had a very positive experience. The people that work in the department are usually enthusiastic and optimistic which creates a pleasant work environment! The manager genuinely cares for the people that work for her and does a whole lot to support the sales team. Other managers “claim” to have an open door policy but in our managers case It’s quite literal and everyone on the team feels comfortable speaking with her. In the world of sales we constantly go through our ups and downs which is the nature of the game. Our manager sincerely celebrates our victories and encourages us in our losses. The product we sell carries integrity which in my opinion is important when choosing a company to sell for. The customers we call on need the product whether it’s through Chef Works or a different vendor. Really it’s just up to you how many people you’d like to reach out to.

    Cons

    Cons.
    The company is growing quickly and because of that we do experience growing pains. Just like with everything it’s not all rainbows and butterfly’s. There are challenges we face as sales people. Other companies are typically structured to support their sales people as the sales people bring revenue into the company which allow the company to cut checks to it’s employees. The sales force typically has challenges getting support from other departments.

    I worked at Chef Works full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely friendly atmosphere, helpful team, clean environment, decent pay, company events. The Human Resource ladies are pretty cool.

    Cons

    If you're not part of the early shift, you park towards the far back side of the building and have to walk all the way to the front. Also, you only get a 30-minute lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more training to your new employees such as product knowledge. Also give employees the option to take an hour lunch as 30 minutes is barely enough time unless you bring your own lunch.

    Pros

    Chef Works has a good reputation of promoting within for career advancement.

    Cons

    Public Transportation is a challenge since the bus stop is about a mile away but does not have a reflection on Chef Works..
