    Pros

    The staff at Dole was incredibly friendly, and everyone was more than willing to get me involved on projects throughout my internship.

    Cons

    Hours were long, and the work could sometimes be demanding. Depending on the department, some would work much longer than others.

    Advice to Management

    Large discrepancies in treatment of workers depending on their level. Needs to be more equality i work quality, especially among those performing manual labor versus those in the office.

    I worked at Dole Food full-time

    Pros

    Great group of professionals. Healthy cafeteria and daily had fresh fruit/vegetables juiced. Absolutely stunning Corporate office that is fenced in with the most beautiful red roses

    Cons

    Under paid and overly slammed with work

    Advice to Management

    Provide bonuses or added incentives for working a job meant for two people inside of one.

    I worked at Dole Food full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gain experience in food service and retail at the same time, a lot of exposure in the tourism industry. You'll become an expert at making a perfect ice cream cone. The company is fairly well run.

    Cons

    Work is very physical. A lot of restocking and dishwashing. Constantly moving and standing, which can be difficult if not used to it. Very little opportunity for promotion. There is a large stagger between management and workers.

    Pros

    Corporate culture of honesty and even handedness that I support. Healthy products I can believe in. Senior management at DFV has made good on its promises and has a clear direction. The employees are dedicated and contientious.

    Cons

    Recent culture of overworking many employees to bring down costs. Long term burnout and poor decision making are starting to show. Middle managment in my dept. seems unfocused and incapable of making and sticking to a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider the long term effects the current cost cutting has on employee ability to make good decisions and on burnout. Focus on training and retaining employees and bringing up their skills rather than outsourcing or 'hiring' competence.

    Pros

    there are few lay offs and high level of security. most jobs are not challenging or stressful, get free fruit

    Cons

    no opportunites to grow, no innovation, very backwards and old fashion, not a lot of training opportunites offered, only senior management has a say in what goes on , no flex time schedules or work from home options (in practice, theory maybe)

    Advice to Management

    get with the times! employee satisfaction and work life balanace leds to a great success for the company, work with people and their lives/desire

    Pros

    A very solid place to work with great co workers and opportunities. I did like the Career Opportunities. But the communication between compensation workers and Senior leadership was second to none.

    Cons

    Long hours and physical labor were just a few cons. The work life balance was pretty good but It could have been better. The pay was low for the amount of work that was expected of you on a day to day basis. With an education this job may have been better for me but i was treated with fairness and respect. The senior leadership could have been stronger.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers
