A Day at Del Monte
SHIPPING/RECIEING CLERK (Former Employee), McAllen, TXApril 15, 2015
Pros: N/A
Cons: N/A
Every morning I would wake up at six in the morning and be ready by seven in the morning. I started work at eight so I would get there at exactly seven forty everyday. I would get ready and dress up in warm clothing because I would have to enter a cooler in temps. thirty - four degrees between thirty - eight, and fix up broken products into their right set of pallets. Getting close to noon, the truck drivers from Mexico would come in so it was time for Shipping/Receiving. Before the truck drivers park up to the parking space provided, I go inside an office and get the paper information from an office clerk and grab the scanner & put in all in the information that's given. I would then hook in the truck and my partner using the push & pull forklift, he would then enter the truck with me to get it out & I would scan every order letting the company it's good and ready. When all those orders were finished, I would then unhook the truck, clean up my work area, set up pallets for the next products, and all over again.

Strong brands with strong product development team
Division Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 23, 2015
Pros: strong brands, supportive cross functional team
Cons: management turnover
Working with National Broker group and National retailers. Lots of support from corporate office, trade marketing group open to new ideas for promotions.

Learned about managing trade spends to increase sales and profits for all parties. Co-workers supportive.

Enjoyed the travel and being in front of the customers. Also liked the analysis piece of managing each retailer.

Hardest part is selling the retailer on the power of the brand vs. cheapest product.

One of the best jobs I've ever had
Warehouse Offie Clerk (Former Employee), Burley, IDDecember 8, 2014
Pros: they gave us a raise each season we returned
Cons: they closed the plant
It seemed like everyone I encountered at the plant genuinely cared about you and appreciated it when you would return year after year, as this was a seasonal job only. I was sorry that they close the plant. There were very few times when the supervisors were on edge, that made it a healthy work environment to work in & around.

process monitor and tally person (Former Employee), Burley IdahoMarch 10, 2014
The biggest benefits to this company were a raise if you returned for the next season and ease of time off if needed. the hours were long and sometimes longer than 12 hours but the people and bosses were great.
