Incredible Place to work at
Lead Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 18, 2014
As a growing company there was nothing consistent about the company except the culture. A typical day at work would consist of me getting the list of numbers to do, ie., 140,000 lbs of Granny Smith apples and 70,000 lbs of Fiji apples and 5,000 of carrots. Then having to accomplish said numbers by filling giant boxes with the produce that the list dictated. All the while driving the forklift and stacking the produce boxes in the truck where it could be shipped to the factory to be turned into juice. I learned to drive forklifts and document produce. The managers who worked with us were really something special. They got in there and dirty with us and they made life in the factory simple and easy. After working 12-16 hour shifts, my coworkers turned to family and so the culture in there was as comfortable as it was competitive. The hardest part of working there was being able to handle life outside of the factory and being able to hold down your job. As a lead, my managers saw potential in me until the end of my career there. The most enjoyable part would have to be my coworkers. They made going to work worth it. It was fun while it lasted.
