What Our People Have To Say

Much has changed in thirty-three years, but the nature of the company, the family feeling, that love and respect remains. We brought the best of the past into the future at CFI. People don’t love their jobs everywhere like we do here. CFI makes a difference.

Taryn LewisExport Supervisor, Los Angeles, CA

CFI gave me so much support, and transitioning from a corporation to a smaller, family-feel company was relatively easy. That’s how they get you here… They bring you in, treat you well, and work you hard! Now, I’ve been part of the CFI family for over 15 years.

Jeff HearnsBusiness Development, Los Angeles, CA

Perishables are never stale, no pun intended, but I was ready to try a new facet of the industry. I’m a competitor in my daily life and I always want to push myself to do better, think bigger, come to a problem with a fresh perspective and work with a team just as dedicated. CFI was exactly where I wanted to be for the next phase of my career.

Mike HannaExport Supervisor, Los Angeles, CA

I’ve collected so many great experiences all over the world. I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t and with CFI, they have a program that works. They’re invested in training and support with updates to new staff every 30 and 60 days to ensure the adjustment is as smooth as possible. You’re meeting goals as a family and it just builds the success when it’s a solid team effort.

Jimy KimBusiness Development, Los Angeles, CA

CFI supports women in the workplace by recognizing/making note of your achievements and promoting within whenever possible.

Bailey BartholemewCustomer Service Supervisor, Anchorage, AK

In my experience, I feel that CFI supports women by allowing them a safe space to express themselves. I feel that this is very important because there are more men than women on the warehouse floor, and I feel that if we have any concerns, we can voice them and know we will be heard.

Jackeline PlateroWarehouse Agent, Los Angeles, CA

CFI is very accommodating when it comes to family-related matters and time off. There seems to be the opportunity for women to move up to higher positions. I feel that my opinion matters as much as any other male coworker.
