    I worked at Transpacific Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No pressure to perform: company is stagnant and tolerates anything! The hard workers are abused by the ones that play games on their cell phones and/or browse the web while sitting around all day chatting.

    Cons

    This company is going nowhere fast! Leadership has no industry background or knowledge, and lacks role-specific credentials. While competitors experience double digit growth in an expanding market, those running the business cannot provide clarity or direction, content with making excuses to the parent company - an international conglomerate that is told they simply don't understand the U.S. market. Meanwhile, employee turnover is huge, and the place is a lawsuit waiting to happen because there are those in leadership positions unable to control the disparaging comments that spew out whenever a problem surfaces.

    Advice to Management

    You need to ask the hard questions, like why is employee turnover so great? You should also part with a dollar, bring in people with skills...and then get the heck out of the way! If not, rest assured, even an ignorant HQ will eventually get around to questioning why this division loses customers like a baby loses teeth, or wonder aloud how, in an industry that's thriving, their model continues to lose money.

    I worked at Transpacific Foods (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are not a minority, you will be a flavor of the month and year if you just keep kissing up. Those so-called CEO just love those whities working for them. You will have no worry of making mistake.

    Cons

    What a bunch of clowns!! Management gossip about employees, talk trash behind closed doors but the doors and walls are so thin. They have to conduct meeting (gossip session) outside of building at a coffee shop. Lack of integrity and has no sense of how the company run. Management is a big time old fart whiner waiting to be taking away in a gurney. They are a huge moron sloppy hack. You will find the biggest rat and snake on the same body here at Transpacific Foods Inc. No sense of leadership and NOT qualify to be in that position. Biggest fraud company, surprise the IRS hasn't auditted thoroughly.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work with people, and don't think you are above the law. You won't last as long as you wanted. Go back to school for basic management skills and people skills.

    I have been working at Transpacific Foods full-time

    Pros

    If you like to brown nose, and your skills are sleeping and don't want to waste your brain cells thinking, this employer is for you.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Old farts running the puppet show. It's a shell company transferring money to oversea so no working knowledge needed. No growth opportunities or can learn anything from anybody because all are morons.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking trash behind your employees' back and bad mouth every single one come into the door. Take a serious 101 management course from higher education institution, jungle class doesn't count.

    I have been working at Transpacific Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Farm is absolutely beautiful. People and staff are nice! Salary is good (but doesn't have any other benefits, not even health insurance).

    Cons

    Leadership. Like a similar post said 'business plan'. They need one and a considering the fact they are almost solvent. They have an awful reputation in the industry so doing business with vendors, dealers, buyers is difficult as they have a bad taste in their mouth from previous management (I was spoken to quite rudely by a vendor because of a previous encounter with the owner). They have some very questionable business practices that seems to lead you to believe they will cut costs at any avenue.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees better, install a work-life balance system, install a basic safety plan, spend time training the employees (any amount of time is better than the current system of nothing!), actually care about your employees well-being and safety!, stop lying (to employees, vendors, buyers, etc) it is just bad business!, and health insurance is a nice thing to offer when your employees make minimum wage working 60+ hours a week.

    Pros

    The small size of the company makes it easier to learn the different aspects of an export/import wholesale business as long as you are willing to learn and do the hard work

    Cons

    There is limited opportunity to grow, poor information sharing within the company, poor work/life balance and management can be unprofessional. Many employees felt unappreciated and treated unfairly. There were very little training given.

  8. "Finance and Accounting"

    I have been working at Transpacific Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging import trading company. Relaxed office environment with good benefits in the heart of the Irvine business district. Great opportunity to learn international import business--if you are willing to learn. This is a "hands on" workplace.

    Cons

    Not for everybody. Many people try to succeed but do not understand the dynamics of the business. Not for Corporate Cookie Cutter types with limited vision and exaggerated skill sets. Silos do not perform well here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Team's strength, character, and enthusiasm. Communicate often.
