    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Del Monte Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    At the facility level the people were the heart of the operation. It was a true little family in which everyone cared about each other and there were always pot lucks, grill outs and catered meals to show appreciation for the hard work that was put in during the summers.

    Cons

    Many company changes which always lead to uncertainty. There were talks about closing facilities for years so employees were always walking on eggshells and no one ever felt secure in their roles. At the processing facilities there was large gaps in understanding what our business really did with our corporate office in San Francisco, CA. Previous CEO would come onsite maybe once a year to tour- but then stay back and not even tour the facility. Very poor morale to navigate and try to stay optimistic.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Del Monte Foods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Supply chain VP and Director who was walked out are no longer there, wreaking havoc on some other poor souls lives. Summer Friday's leaving at 3pm if your management lets you and not call a meeting to say they were "optional" and a privelege. SMH. Pandemic is lending itself to increased sales now that people are hoarding canned goods.

    Cons

    - Great to provide shelf stable items to people when they are hoarding. Sad to say only a pandemic saved this company from being history in a good economy. The only bright spot a worldwide pandemic brought is that it moved their aging inventory out of their warehouses and freed up some cash for them to burn through, and once the world recovers? No one is going to want to eat canned green beans again are they? - Pension was also stopped at beginning of 2020, but most lifers are still riding it out and holding on for dear life, and why wouldn't they, with Sr. Managers pulling in $145+ for watching European soccer in their offices pretending to work while their employees do their work and get hammered by management constantly. - There are only so many ways you can innovate a can of French Cut green beans. - The pandemic will one day end. - East Bay not conducive to hiring young, millennial talent, instead re-treads willing to take anything instead of working in SF.
