    Base wage, hard work

    Summer Support (Former Employee) Wahiawä, HI (US)

    ProsGain experience in food service and retail at the same time, a lot of exposure in the tourism industry. You'll become an expert at making a perfect ice cream cone. The company is fairly well run.

    ConsWork is very physical. A lot of restocking and dishwashing. Constantly moving and standing, which can be difficult if not used to it. Very little opportunity for promotion. There is a large stagger between management and workers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Must be willing to drink the Kool Aid

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Monterey, CA (US)

    ProsCorporate culture of honesty and even handedness that I support. Healthy products I can believe in. Senior management at DFV has made good on its promises and has a clear direction. The employees are dedicated and contientious.

    ConsRecent culture of overworking many employees to bring down costs. Long term burnout and poor decision making are starting to show. Middle managment in my dept. seems unfocused and incapable of making and sticking to a decision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart to consider the long term effects the current cost cutting has on employee ability to make good decisions and on burnout. Focus on training and retaining employees and bringing up their skills rather than outsourcing or 'hiring' competence.

    I worked in IT, and was given plenty of opportunities and independence to learn and grow.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people are very professional, motivated, and well managed. It seemed that the executive and management team had the experience and charisma to properly lead by example.

    ConsThe department I worked in was very lean and short staffed, so I was not allowed to take any time off the first year. That fact, along with the long hours and periodic micro management, did not instill confidence that my superiors would reward my hard work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHaving a better work life balance will increase employees' work productivity, and their retention rate. Overall, giving a little more freedom will empower people to work more efficiently.

    dole food

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA (US)

    Prosthere are few lay offs and high level of security. most jobs are not challenging or stressful, get free fruit

    Consno opportunites to grow, no innovation, very backwards and old fashion, not a lot of training opportunites offered, only senior management has a say in what goes on , no flex time schedules or work from home options (in practice, theory maybe)

    Advice to Senior Managementget with the times! employee satisfaction and work life balanace leds to a great success for the company, work with people and their lives/desire

    Good place to start

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Enterprise, AL (US)

    ProsA very solid place to work with great co workers and opportunities. I did like the Career Opportunities. But the communication between compensation workers and Senior leadership was second to none.

    ConsLong hours and physical labor were just a few cons. The work life balance was pretty good but It could have been better. The pay was low for the amount of work that was expected of you on a day to day basis. With an education this job may have been better for me but i was treated with fairness and respect. The senior leadership could have been stronger.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your workers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
