I worked at Ghirardelli Chocolate part-time (More than 5 years)

I pleasantly enjoyed the exposure to different ethnic cultures all under one roof, you get a new sense of respect and understand for other's beliefs.

Cons

Micro management, excessive write ups, unionized.

Advice to Management

Take some time out and show some appreciation to your employees!

    I worked at Ghirardelli Chocolate part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best part of working for this company was the people. I worked for the corporate office in San Leandro and everyone was great. Lots of events to go to, benefits were good, and the atmosphere was right. New CSM was awesome!

    Cons

    Former boss made up her own rules and didn't know how to communicate with her staff. Didn't get a raise until I decided to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up to date with your reviews and promotions, because there are some who really deserve the extra increase and acknowledgement. Speak to you employees even the ones working in Latrhop. Dispense some Giants tickets to them and not just management.

    I have been working at Ghirardelli Chocolate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Of course, the best chocolate in the world. At corporate, the people are a great bunch to work with, and the benefits are good. The caliber of managers is pretty good; for the most part employees are treated fairly. \You have to enjoy your job to be here, and of course, love the products!

    Cons

    Sometimes - long hours to accomplish goals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people right and they will take the company where you want to drive it.
