A very demanding and stressful job.
Route Reliever (Former Employee) –  Laredo, TXJuly 26, 2016
I would arrive at the warehouse around 12:00 a.m. and started to print a product check list to see if everything ordered was not damage. Then I would break the products to separate them to assigned stores for that particular day and load them to my truck. I would drive to stores and prepare a ticket to sell the product and deliver them. Pick-up empty trays and bring them back to Bimbo's warehouse. A very challenging and tiresome job to say the least. You work every day and it does take a toll on your health and well being.
Pros
you get paid.
Cons
You feel like a slave with no sense of accomplishment

More risk than reward
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) –  Hazleton, PAJuly 13, 2016
Trying to increase sales in an area with multiple competitors can prove to be very difficult. Company raised the prices of product in the last calendar year which makes it harder to get sales when you have more expensive product. Company helps you very little with price cuts to try to increase sales and build equity and sales within your sales area. Sometimes feels like you are alone in trying to build your sales territory with no support for company management.
Pros
Seeing different things everyday, working partially outside, making your own decisions.
Cons
Income is solely dependent on sales.

Productive workplace where no day is the same
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  bakersfield. caJune 6, 2016

-Typical day at work is about 12 hours long and is mostly spent driving and delivering
Pros
Work at your pace, in charge of your route, flexible lunch hours

Long work days, No back to back days off, Dealing with incompetent/demanding store recievers

Production Utility Associate (Current Employee) –  Decatur, GAMarch 18, 2016
This was a great culture and it was set forth by the management staff. This commute began to be too much after I moved. Had I not moved, I would likely still be with this company.

Result Oriented
Safety Observation Team Member (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXMarch 13, 2016
after signing in. you stretch before starting any activity
you tie in with the previous person on your spot
you organize your work place before you start your duty
the hardest part is that you have to stand on a concrete floor for a long hours. and it can be really long hours
the hours are very fluctuating and the schedule is ever changing
management is good as they strive to do their best(not all the managers but most of them are great)
benefits are good. chances for advancement are slim to some extent cause of the culture and the system that the company performs.
