    I worked at King's Hawaiian full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself and contribute to a growing company

    Cons

    Growing pains as the company looks to move from small to mid-sized and leadership pushes for standards and processes to be developed.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the strategic imperatives and never forget to emphasize behavioral values as new employees are brought on board.

    Pros

    A nice, clean facility. If you need a job it's a easy job to get as a production worker. And it seems if you stay there for a couple months they will hire you. People working are very friendly.

    Cons

    Very fast pace work environment, non stop action. Pay is low compared to other companies. Long shifts 7:15 to 7:45.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay so more people will stay longer than one day.

    I have been working at King's Hawaiian full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rapid advancement to operator training, and in some cases, promotion to an operator position, happens quite frequently for new hires and even temps occasionally. Everyone starts as a helper which is basically the bottom of the pecking order. This is a very healthy position to stay in long enough to build stamina and to adapt to the conformity of "KH" quality teamwork. This is also where management seems to keep a constant watch on each individuals performance levels. This evaluation is calculated on a day to day consistency basis comprised of two main factors: overall attitude and the overall ability to maintain a good work pace while being vigilant at the same time. Very effective method for grading and typically a quick process for most foremans to complete.

    Cons

    The number one con by far is favoritism! It has been so disgustingly abused in the most obvious ways possible. There have been numerous occasions over the past several months that have severely impacted the moral of many hard working, good natured employee's. Unfortunately I've become bitter as well but I'm still here so I still have a little faith.

    Advice to Management

    If it works, leave it alone. That goes for equipment,machinery, and employees. A certain person in lower management needs to stop micromanaging. They also need to quit going out of there way to find things that people did wrong. One would think that being caught, clearly making a false accusation, they would find something better to do such as observing the dress code. I would like to wear my pajama pants to work but I doubt I would be allowed to work. Just sayin..
