Very nice company. Great experience.
It was a great experience for me because they helped me solve an income I needed. I worked with very cordial people and in a very flexible schedule. The work is relaxed despite some issues that were solved with the assistance of support staff. Highly recommended.

Nothing congenial about the place
Poorly organized and very mismanaged. Lots chiefs, not enough Indians. Rules are bent for the favored. Lack of focus for the job at hand. Phony culture.

Good concept
The concept is amazing. Food waste is a real issue that needs to be addressed in this world and these guys have become part of the solution. Makes for a fulfilling work environment.

Part-time
The company is new to the Raleigh area so routes are only ran on Saturdays compared to multiple days in other states. The job is cut and dry, not hard at all. You are an independent contractor so you will be required to use your own vehicle. The amount paid depends on the size of the route plus the area in which you are traveling to.
Pros
Very relaxed, great if you are looking for some extra cash
Cons
No benefits

Inspiring company that truly cares about culture
Hungry Harvest really is an inspiring place to work! The people are incredibly supportive of one another and really do stand behind the mission.

No day is the same - the work is always evolving and changing, and new exciting challenges arise as the customer base grows. Most importantly, the work is impactful.


There aren't many downsides to working at Hungry Harvest. That said, it's by no means a 9-5. For that reason, the culture probably isn't for everyone. As others have noted here, it's a small team that's growing quickly. There are growing pains, but everyone is committed to solving them, improving operations, and developing a healthy culture.


If you want to feel the impact your work has and work with incredibly kind humans, apply here!
Pros
Mission driven work, free produce, amazing culture and coworkers, option to work remote
Cons
Some growing pains

Higher Meaning, Tasty Benefits
A typical day at work is never the same twice. From fielding calls from our hunger relief partners, to innovation of new products to help end waste, to planning impact driven events and understanding more the operations of a to your door delivery company, each day presents new and exciting challenges.

I've learned how far authenticity can go in advancing the mission. Each member of the team truly believes in food justice, and the importance of maintaining a sustainable operating budget to keep the work going. Nothing is wasted, from food we pack to office supplies and time.


You have some work from home/remote privileges which is a huge plus for me personally. You have colleagues that truly have your back, and it's fun to visit the remote markets (I'm an HQ employee based in Baltimore) to see how they are overcoming challenges, or how the customers differ/similar to the home market.


Hardest part of the job is this is not a clock in clock out situation. You've got to be all in for the mission, for the work, and really enjoy helping people. If you're not authentically driven to be helper... you're going to feel outside the culture and all the extra mile efforts we make are going to seem annoying or stressful.


Most enjoyable part of the job is knowing your work has a direct impact on the health and betterment of friends, family and even strangers. I take great satisfaction in working in an atmosphere where there is no red tape or BS to the end solutions of being a steady and consistent resource for people wanting fresh, affordable healthy food, and hearing

Mission Driven Company with Culture Focused CEO and Team
This is a great company. It's small now, but the growth potential is huge, and increasing daily. The mission is what gets people in the door, and the team is what makes people stay.

It's in the "growing pains" stage right now, where volume and interest is increasing, and processes that have carried the business this far are changing to help the company scale. With those changes comes additional opportunities to advance for employees, and more opportunities to reduce food waste.


Everyone works more than 8 hours a day, and it's a "be on call" kind of environment because you don't want to let your team down if something goes wrong.


Working from home is an option, but being in the office is fun.


The most difficult part of the job would be adapting to manual processes (and attempting to automate them) while working within a tight budget of a small company.


The most enjoyable part of the job is providing a service that positively impacts lives while working with a terrific team (family, really) who are focused on giving the customers the best experience possible.
Pros
$25 weekly veggie/fruit box credit, flexible WFH policy, employee-first management approach
Cons
Laptops/tech not provided

No route is guaranteed on a weekly basis.

Not a bad place to work, but the paybisnt worth it especially after taxes
Not a bad place to work, the only thing is that you will have to pay back money at tax time instead of getting money back, that's not always a fun experience so be aware of that,
Pros
Free fruits and veggies
Cons
Low pay
