Good Job
Commercial Cargo Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gulfport, MS11 September 2018
Dole Fresh Fruit was overall a good job but lacked the opportunity for growth and advancement.
Being a woman, the chance for advancement was very slim to non. The work hours and work environment but great, but after 23 years doing the same day to day activities and having obtained a Master's Degree, it was time for me to pursue other career opportunities.
Pros
Hours and Pay
Cons
Opportunity for Growth

Great for experience, poor for advancement
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Atwater, CA3 December 2017
Company offers great work experience that forces you to learn quick, however it is now Japanese owned and they don't care about employee incentive, advancement, and offer little to no job security. If you're willing to stick it out for a few years and learn quick, it's a great stepping stone to be able to move to a better company. Benefits are expensive and cover the bare minimum with huge out of pocket cost. Management is under qualified for the most part and is chosen on a " its who you know, not what you know" protocol. They like to enforce a " your lucky to have a job"type attitude.
Pros
Paid time off is above average.
Cons
They claim to offer competitive wages, but offer as little as they can.

Money is great, no work life balance
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Westlake Village, CA17 July 2017
Don't expect to take your PTO or be promoted within the company. You make great pay but are required to work long hours. Management expects nothing but perfection. Good luck with this company.
Pros
In house cafeteria, decent pay and benefits
Cons
Long hours, no bonuses, raises or promotions

Job was not what was represented
Treasury Specialist (Former Employee) –  Westlake Village, CA11 July 2017
This was not the right job for me. The job that was promised on the job description was not what I actually ended up doing on a day to day basis. However, people were nice, lunchroom was great, workout facilities on site. Offices beautiful.

A typical day at work is very physically demanding but will keep you in shape. It is very hard to balance school life with work life however it is possible to do.
