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.
you get paid.
You feel like a slave with no sense of accomplishment
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Hazleton, PA – July 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.
Seeing different things everyday, working partially outside, making your own decisions.
* Good money * Horrible management and they over work you. * Crazy hours!!!! Usually a part-time in bimbo work as a full time,40/50 hours weekly, no benefits, no personal days, and if call off for healthy problems still get in trouble.

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.
