You don't want to work for BakeMark ever...
Sales (Former Employee) – Pico Rivera – April 4, 2014
Bakemark is currently being ran by a group of micromanaging executives who don't want employees who can bring new, successful ideas to a company that has been mis-managed by the current president and executive team. They offer no assistance or support and I only seek to blame the people under them. The company was recently divested from its parent company and bought out by a private equity firm, that's their track record.
Their current strategy is to hire people with a book of business, which isn't a bad strategy except for the micromanaging that comes along with it. They don't value employees and the executive team is slowing stripping away any decision making power away from their current general managers who run the individual centers. Why? Because only they know how to run a company, everyone else is not competent. It is my opinion, if you bring a book of business with you and you do something they don't approve of (like growing the business but only how they want it done) you'll be shown the door. Here's their benefits...
3 weeks PTO, no sick days or floaters
401k - yes
Tuition Reimbursement - No, they want you to think?
Bonus - Eligible after 1 yr of employment, 2 yrs for sales people only after you have been on 100% commission.
Sales rep salaries - if your lucky, you'll make $60k your first year.
If you are a "yes man" and you lack any back bone, this is the place for you! However, the money isn't worth it.
