An amazing adventure with the food industry.
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 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.
