I like working with the staff
I also enjoyed working with my co-workers of many nationalities, I worked many hours overtime when the trucks were lined up for food delivery, sometimes extra trucked needed to be processed and I would work overtime.

Dreadful place to work.
Never in your wildest dreams could ever imagine working in such a horrible facility. Without doubt the phrase “just a number” is certainly valid. There is no work culture. Management grasps at straws to meet deadlines and are massive fans of passing the buck on to their over worked, under paid and appreciated employees. You’re constantly under the threat of being wrote up for any number of things. Do not apply to work here.

Production line
It ducked. Management did nothing at all and the supervisors were just a bunch of nonchalant people. You are better of working somewhere else than this cold environment tbh

Horrible don’t do it you’ll be sorry
Awful management,no consideration for human life, unless your a robot it’s the place for you. If you have a family emergency they don’t care they tell you if leave your fired

expected to work 7 days a week, no days off, low pay for the workload, selfish company.
I got hired here at Del Monte about a week ago, and I quit today. Let's start with how they get you. Of course, if you're desperately seeking employment, especially during the loose ends of a pandemic (like I was), their work ad sounds appealing. Full-time, permanent employment, and you get paid every week?! Heck ya, sign me up. They get back to you right away, and basically you're hired if you are able to work the following day. The orientation/interview is none of that. Instead, the recruiter presents a cheap little slide show, while you fill out paper work, which is then followed by a test, that has no merit. After that, you are taken to the PPE Room (personal protective equipment), where you're instructed how to dress for the production floor. As soon as you're dressed, you're sent on the floor. No training. They expect you to learn everything on the floor from other workers, who look just as sore and annoyed to be there. They expect you to work 7 DAYS a work week. As a new hire, I was expected to work from the day I started, to the next week's Friday (11 days in a row). The work is repetitive, and you are definitely going to be sore. Your feet, back, hands, and patience will be tested. Please do not apply here. It is horrible! They only pay you minimum wage ($14/HR), and expect you to devote your loyalty to them. I wish I had known what a terrible place this was before I applied.
