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

    Pros

    Good company to work in, I was lucky to have a good manager who helped me grow. I enjoyed working under pressure and finishing tasks on or before time.

    Cons

    Work load fluctuates a lot. There are times when you have nothing to do and on the other hand there are times when you have to put in extra hours to get something done.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee development. There are other areas of improvement as well. It is short staffed at times so that makes the work load fluctuate a lot. I would advice them to look for

    Pros

    Great PTO benefits that makes it worthwhile. You can build up to at least five weeks of time off very easily.

    Cons

    Lax on accountability within departments. Challenging to be promoted on merits, have to be "one of the few".

    I worked at Dole Food full-time

    Pros

    The company offers a competitive salary and benefits package. Very professional setting and fresh snacks in the afternoon.

    Cons

    I like a professional environment but it seemed a little too stuffy for me. It was cold and didn't seem like anybody enjoyed their jobs or fellow colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to be approachable. There is a clear distinction between management and regular employees.

    Pros

    My department was small but we worked well as a team and I had a great boss.

    Cons

    My department, among others, was outsourced after a division was sold.

    Advice to Management

    Stress level is extremely high in this corporate environment; a lot of it was unnecessary.

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

    Pros

    Nice pay. Great team to work with. A well-known brand in this field. Good products to convince my customer without fear and felt confident. GM gave me chance that I could full play to my talent.

    Cons

    No one is perfect. Some staffs said GM is kind of bossy so some left the company. My experience was they changed the working time from two days off from all 7 days flexible working time without any negotiation with staffs in advance. "Just sign the contract or leave" was the only choice.

    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!
