Line Assembler (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – August 6, 2013
Putting on a hair net and ear protectors, washing hands for 20 seconds, putting on gown then gloves, apron and washing hands again for 20 seconds. Look at schedule for positions and making sure you do the best you can. My co-workers are very helpful no one stays behind or left out. The hardest part will have to be a position called blade, its a difficult and most delicate part, because the product has to be cut perfectly so it can look neat and ready.
Great Co-Workers, Free lunch, free coffee, 3 breaks
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – August 28, 2017
Working at deli express was fast paced and you had to keep up but once you got the hang of it, it wasn't so bad. Wrapping sandwiches on a assembly line was hard to get use to and fast paced so keeping up could be hard but it got easy as you got the hang of it.
I really enjoyed my time at the Deli Express (EA Sween) location in Austin. Management was great and would always help me out when needed (they didn't sit behind a desk all day; they were out there with us). The hours were typically from 9pm-5am and the routes were easy to navigate. The pay was pretty good and the bennies were good as well.
Pay was good, Increases each year, They would also have miscellaneous bonuses throughout the year, The night shift supervisor is very knowlegeable.
They do have some sorry employees who don't help out other drivers, It was hard for management to get rid of thess empoyees because HR was scared of retribution.
Production Assembler (Former Employee) – Hopkins, MN – July 29, 2017
The job itself I didn't have a problem with. I personally thought for the work that we do they were a little to strict for my taste. For the cold temperature we had to work in I thought we could've gotten paid more.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – June 11, 2017
Start work at 5:30 a.m end at 5:30-7:00 p.m. Then whenever you get home you have to log in on your computer and do safety quizzes that take another hour. Very tiring because it is all about speed. I can understand why there are so many accidents on the road. Management could care less because they aren't even within 100 miles of you. The culture was all about conformity. Don't ever mention how things could be done differently because they will yell at you for that. The only enjoyable part of the job was zoning out to the radio playing in the cab while driving to and from customer accounts.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – June 6, 2017
I enjoyed working at Deli Express, I had a great fun team. We all got trained together, we all got along and we helped each other, we laughed. When I quit my co-workers tried talking me into staying.my supervisor, I am blank on his name, but he worked with us on the line. He made our job to be successful, we all liked and enjoyed our work, that makes a very big difference.
Line Assembler (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – May 15, 2017
A typical day at work would be; going through a process of cleaning, and then going to a line, and changing every 30 mins. I learned from this job that work efficiently will help you work better. Also, if you learn how to use both hands, then you will have an easy pay check. The management could be a little better in organization, but otherwise they're nice people.
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – April 15, 2017
Assembly line work. Making and packaging food products. Good fun environment. It's just the point system if you miss days you lose points and you only have 7 points for how very long you work there. That's what I didn't like.
Assembler/Meat & Cheese skinner (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – January 17, 2017
Honestly loved this job. Very fast paced and simple. Everyone had their own position set each morning. It was a different job everyday. Although it was tiring and repetitive it was very easy to catch on and keep up. Great co-workers who are always willing to help out the new employees. The only thing I would have to say negatively about Deli is that they under pay the QAs. They have so much responsibility and stress to deal with everyday that is well worth higher pay than what they get.
It was a good place to work, nice family owned company
District Manager (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – March 31, 2016
Lots of hours to accomplish all they wanted you to do. It was a nice company to work for. They seemed to like their employees and there was a lot of respect shown both to upper management and from upper management to regular employees
Sandwich maker (Former Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – January 7, 2016
The job is relaxing and can be difficult sometime. I've learned how to wrap sandwiches within seconds. My co-workers are respectful and very talkative. The hardest part of the job was the fast pace where you have to wrap the sandwiches as fast as you could so you wouldn't mess up the line. I enjoy making friends and i am prioritize in work.
Cook/Cashier/Dishwasher/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – October 24, 2015
Hard work. Made me more skilled and improved my work ethic. Co-workers were interesting and for the most part cool. Pay started coming late and there was some drama sometimes. Not a terrible job as far as the actual work.
Kitchen Assistant where I performed a variety of food prepartion
Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) – San Marcus, TX – April 15, 2015
I worked 3 hour shifts preparing food and preparing deliveries for the Brown School Treatment Center located in Texas. I learned it is important to work as a team player and have open communication skills while portraying good listening skills. The hardest part of my job was walking deliveries to locations with a bad ankle. The most enjoyable part of the job was making the food with co-workers who were nice, friendly, and positive.
positive environemnt, team effort, communicated to others
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – April 1, 2015
Most co-workers were very easy going, hard working and easy to work with. Some of the upper management needed more experience, you shouldn't become management just because you have been there a long time. You need to know what you are doing. Owner very involved with the company but needs to be more involved on how employees are being treated.
route delivery driver (Former Employee) – las vegas nv – November 9, 2014
Job says 10 hour nights but its always 11 or more no time for a lunch break and the trucks are over 26000 pounds frequently which is illegal if you only have a nevada class c licence (all they require)
I worked there almost one year. Increased the sales on the route, was in the top 25 NATIONWIDE. But the current management did not care if I had to work 14+ hours a day. Just that I should get the deliveries and money made for the company.
Like someone said in another review, the company talks the talk but does not walk the walk when it comes to making sure their employees are being treated right.
I would go in at 4am daily and bust my tail to make sure the job was done properly. And what did I get for all my hard work? They told me my route was being relocated to another city! But now they are hiring a Route Sales Rep in the same town I worked???
Like I was saying, the company acts like they worry about their employees. But, did not worry about what happens to them...even their top notch employees. All they care about is the company's profit margin.
So, unless it does not bother you about working for a business that does not care about their employees then by all means go ahead and apply for a job here. But I advise any and everybody to stay away from this company.
The pay is not good enough. By comparison, Frito Lay's base/starting salary is $45,000/yr compared to their starting pay.
STAY AWAY FROM DELI EXPRESS!
Got one free sandwich/pastrie a day if I wanted one.
