Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Franklin Park, IL – June 28, 2016
Spoke to all the sales representatives regarding pricing contracts for all of our clients. The management was exceptional and worked very well with all the employees. Unfortunately, we were bought out which ended my employment there.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Greencastle, PA – February 25, 2016
Management here was great. I was only working over the busy holiday season through a temp agency. I enjoyed my experience here and have nothing, but good to say about my personal experience at World Kitchen, LLC.
Product Development Engineer (Current Employee) – Rosemont, IL – December 18, 2015
A typical day includes interacting with people across all functions of the business including brand marketing, customer marketing, design, engineering, quality and finance. The environment encourages all to give their input and to reach out to others to further their skills and experiences. A great workplace with many great and accommodating people.
Free lunches and products, friendly and outgoing co-workers, good work-life balance
Order Filler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Monee, IL – August 6, 2015
Working at World Kitchen, gave me another family. Everyone I met within the couple I was their, were very friendly. The work was simple even though sometimes it got a little frustrating during the busy season.
It is a seven days one day off, seven days two days off and the seven days four days off schedule with mandatory overtime. Management could be better run, there was an influx of different managers during my time there which seemed to breed resentment amongst the employees. A constant difference of too strict and too lenient caused people to quickly become disgruntled.

Trade Mktg. Mgr. for mass merchandiser from Chicago
CONTRACT - TRADE MARKETING/WAL*MART CHANNEL (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 7, 2015
As a Trade Mktg. Mgr. for World Kitchen, my travel consisted of leaving on Monday and returning on Friday most every week. Although this made sense as the HQ (and my boss) were located in Chicago, the hardest part of the job was finding some work/life balance. I learned that managing millions of dollars in trade marketing funds which would affect many different product lines and category placement was critical to any new or existing initiatives and the balance between both is sometimes a gray line. I enjoyed my co-workers - especially those in Corning, NY! Great products, people, and management made a typical day at work pleasant.
MANAGER (Current Employee) – Johnson Creek, WI – March 12, 2015
Working for Worldkitchen has taught me a lot. I love this job, just looking for something with a better work/home balance. Retail managers have to work on off hours, weekends, and holidays. I love being able to grow my employees into better managers. I also enjoy dealing with customers everyday and every day changing events.
Palletizer Operator (Current Employee) – Greencastle, PA – December 5, 2014
Working at Walmart was a great experience. The co-workers were easy to get along with. Stalking the shelves and helping customers was a typical day at work. I learned the presentation is important in retail. There wasn't too much hard about the job.
Neo Packer promoted to Line Worker (Current Employee) – Charlerio,PA – August 7, 2014
A typical day a work for me is not always on the same shift. My job requires different shifts every week, I can deal with that but it does make it harder to my plans with my family as well as I have to use my vacation days to go see the doctor. Just b/c I don't know what shift i'll be on until that week.-something I wish they would change. -I learned I can get extra hours if I volunteer which I like. -My management is ok somethimes I feel like some of them don't work as hard as they can. -People come in and out of this factory through out the year for the ones that stay I can tell that they are hard workers. -The hardest part I would say is the fact that the factory has no AC in the summer it gets really hot at times and we get 10 min's for heat breaks but only if its over 100 degrees. -The one thing I love about my job besides the health benefits are the hours if I need to pay a bill or car payment I can work extra hours and pay it that next week b/c we get paid weekly.
Utility Worker (Former Employee) – Greencastle,PA – August 4, 2014
I loved my job. Was blessed to have work with them for 11 years. Every job has its ups and downs but I truly can not complain. Met some wonderful people and my bosses were great. Really wanting to find another job like this.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, New York – May 12, 2014
I woul count the safe,put the register drawers in and go to the bank before the store opened.When I came back I would check emails to see if there was anything new from corporate, I then would do the line-up and the to do list.Once the doors were open the main focus were the customers. I have learned that the customers are different in different parts of our locations. The hardest part of this or any of my jobs is trying to really understand what the customer is wanting. language was and is difficult at times. The most enjoyable part of my days were intereacting with our customers, and I loved to do plan-o-grams and price changes. My co-workers and myself got along. I am a very hard worker and with them seeing that helped with their attitude and work ethics.
very good health care, products that they carried were very good, so i was proud to work for a company that had a great reputation
didnt like the way they did their sales, would change things often with the locations, and the signs they sent had many mistakes.they didnt reward you for any good work, had no incentives.
