    I have been working at Dole Food full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is all about great quality food and sustainability. The people I worked with were great.

    Cons

    The owner, David Murdock is well past his prime, yet he doesn't seem to know it or what to believe it. He's sends the management team and ultimately the staff on one chase after another instead of allow the company to do what it does best and that is to focus on great products and improving efficiency of all related processes.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage Murdock to retire. Get DeLorenzo back!

    I have been working at Dole Food full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very organized, pretty understanding about requesting time off, all management staff are nice. No mean people. You have a set schedule and never work more than a half hour past closing. I enjoyed the customer interaction too.

    Cons

    Very physical work, constantly lifting boxes, restocking the retail store, serving long lines of food and beverage customers. Very little room for promotion. From the position of summer associate you basically have the option of becoming full time in the same position or moving to cashier, which pays the same but less physical work. The only upward promotion I saw when working there was moving up to being a cook.
