Office Supervisor (Former Employee), Dallas / Grand Prairie – July 19, 2014
Cons: everything else
BakeMark management is about the worst I have worked with in my 30+ years in the workforce. There is no support for the ground troops or middle managers. There is a bully mentality from the corporate office that is completely rigid and often suffocating. Mandates come about with no regard of the effect they will have in the branches. Every good thing – more... is contract and budget driven. They do have great benefits for managers but that goodness does not trickle down in any way to the staff level employees. In the Dallas branch they have a PTO blackout for the months of October, November and December. Some manage to get off but that is only when a supervisor completely defies the GM, something a responsible manager would never do. Fairness does not exist.
Serious consideration should be given before joining this company. – less
Sales (Current Employee), Branch Sales – June 12, 2014
Pros: advancement opportunity, few layers of management
A lot of opportunity for those who wish to separate themselves from the pack. The approachable Executive Management Team will coach / mentor you if you can prove to them that you are a potential leader and not just another employee waiting for the weekend.
Sales rep (Current Employee), Pico Rivera – April 5, 2014
Cons: too many to list
Once you work there, you will hear a lot of people complain about how the executive team micro manages every function of the business. They are so good at it, that the company was divested and repurchased by a private equity firm.
Their is no accountability from the executive team, only blame on those who work below them. It's unfortunate as bakemark – more... is a good company but is being run by an executive team that rules through intimidation. – less
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee), Pico Rivera, CA – December 5, 2013
Pros: steady work
Cons: breaks/lunches were few and far inbetween
The days objective was always the same. How you achieved it was the challenge as the operation was not regimented. I learned to appreciate my family as it was good to come home every day. We had four Operation Managers and three Warehouse Managers in four and a half years? I enjoyed my relationship with my peers and subordinates as we all faced the – more... daily challenges together and had a chance to laugh. The toughest part was dealing with the computer systems that were always failing.There was always something not working. I enjoyed the most the first day of the work week as it began on Sunday. My team was the only group working as all the other facility employees work week was Monday thru Friday. – less
Operations Manager (Former Employee), Reno, NV – October 25, 2012
Cons: no balance to workload. too many hours with no work/life balance.
It's a good company but goals are unachievable so you never feel like you are completing what is expected or at best you are forced to take shortcuts which conflict with my personal and business ethics. Also requires management to work excessive hour’s 60-70 hrs weekly due to limited resources.
