An amazing adventure with the food industry.
Buyer/Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYOctober 21, 2013
Pros: for me, i love international foods.
Cons: very long hours (66 hours weekly) and standing for long periods at a time.
Lot's and lot's of people to help.
There was so much to learn as in any company. The quality of their gourmet products cannot be rivaled.
I was part of management. So, my way was to give my staff the freedom to do their jobs without being micro - managed. I treated them the way that I wanted to be treated in any job position.
My co-workers were very – more... down to earth, knowledgeable of the food products in their departments and we all worked together.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with a customer who woke up that morning and decided that nothing was going to please him or her They were determined to make an employee's life miserable for a moment. We were dealing with the public and the employee who has the patience.to deal with the public, is worth more than gold.
Holidays were the most enjoyable for me. Colorful, exciting products are being beautifully wrapped and delivered as gifts. – less

average job
Porter (Current Employee), Washington, DCAugust 6, 2013
Long and hard days, very unorganized. The coworkers are very nice people just trying to make a living. The management is very mean and doesn't care about their employees. The hardest part of the job is the fact that there are no raises. You work hard and come to work everyday and it doesn't pay off. There is no joy.

High paced fun job
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Saint Helena, CAJanuary 4, 2013
Pros: 30% off anything in the store. being able to interact with customers
Cons: hours were bad.
Working at Dean and Deluca was an experience I will never forget. They were always over staffed in the mornings and understaffed in the evening. My co-workers for the most part were really enjoyable to work with. It was a very high paced work place the hardest part of my job was not having enough people working in our department during a rush. The easiest – more... part of my job was prepping food for the deli case and salad bar. – less

CHEESE AND CHARCUTERIE
Cheese/Charcuterie Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 4, 2012
Pros: welcomes you into a foodies paradise
Cons: you better have some money to spend in that paradise!!
I LOVED THIS JOB A LOT BECAUSE IT OPENED A DIFFERENT WAY OF LOOKING AT FOOD. THAT YOU DONT NEED TO EAT A FULL MEAL EVERY DAY. A FEW DELICIOUS CUBES OF CHEESE. A FEW SLICES OF PROSCUITTO. OR A THIN SLICE OF PATE. AND THATS ALL YOU NEED. MAYBE A FEW OLIVES HERE AND THERE!! IT DID MAKE ME APPRECIATE THE FINER ELEMENTS IN FOOD AND IM THANKFUL TO HAVE HAD – more... THIS EXPERIENCE. – less

New meaning to dead end Job
Associate (Former Employee), SoHo, New YorkOctober 8, 2012
Pros: free samples
Cons: poor management, no raises, no room for growth
Management are very cold hearted and talk to the people that work under them unprofessionally. Other associates are nice and work together very well. a Typical day is going in setting up shop, getting tasks done within a certain time frame, and helping customers. The hardest part about the job is getting tasks done within a certain time frame with only – more... so much man power. The enjoyable part about the job is discovering new foods and enjoy new experiences. – less
