    I have been working at Del Monte Foods full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great place to work when supervisors follow rules

    Cons

    Horrible place to work when they don't they're certain supervisors that think they can do whatever they want not go by Union rules and they don't care how it affects others. Personnel and the union seem to make up the rules along the way whatever benefits them it seems.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if knowledgement would put a stop to the ridiculous acts of others nobody should have to work around certain people and supervisors to follow the rules all supervisors.
