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.

Good money, poor work environment and management.
Route Sales (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 9, 2016
The job pays very well with good benefits.
Very long hours and no appreciation for what we do. Management fights among themselves. There is no communication, and nothing is ever organized or planned, it is just thrown together haphazardly. There is no consideration for customer service, just how cheaply things can be done. No quality in products or service.

Just complete chaos all of the time.
Pros
Good pay and benefits.
Cons
Poor management, long hours, no family life at all.

Poor work place with lots of favoritism
Production Technician (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAFebruary 29, 2016
This place is a joke. Communication is poor here, majority of the supervisors don't know how to run the machines but will be the first to YELL over the radio, "Why are lines (1,2 or 3) down, lets go!" The supervisors talk to you like your a piece of garbage. I was told, You'll never find a job paying this good- it's not only about the money it's about the environment & being mostly happy at where your at so this place needs to wake up. Most of my coworkers were nice and helpful. You had some who would want you to fail at your position during "training" just because they didn't want to run another line. It's extremely hot in the plant. In the summer you can except to work 13 days straight. They have water coolers around the plant although in the summer you drink hot water because the coolers never work. Lots of drama. It's like high school in that place. It's a shame I liked what I did and who I worked with on my line. You will never get off a weekend either. Your days off are Mondays and Fridays. The ONLY good thing is the benefits. They are absolutely wonderful. The union sucks big time too! Turn over rate is unbelievable for the pay but that just shows it's not worth it. EX:There was a group of 20 that started a couple of weeks ago and only 2 came back after the 1st day.
Pros
benefits, pay
Cons
short breaks, drama, management knowledge, union-BAD, favoritism, extremely hot, poor training

Poor
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Commerce City, COFebruary 27, 2016
This company will work you to the bone and not give one care about how it affects you, your family or your safety. The company is constantly trying to take benefits away from their employees including increases to insurance costs, pay cuts, reduction in PTO time for new hires, and commission reductions. This year, as the union contract is under renewal, they are trying to completely take away employee sick time, increase insurance costs, reduce the amount of commissions new hires can receive and preventing them from receiving full commission until they have been there SIX years! If you want to work to the point of exhaustion, consistently have the company trying to cut your benefits and pay and have absolutely ZERO work life balance, Bimbo Bakeries is for you!
Pros
Can't think of any
Cons
See review comments above. There is nothing good about this company

Very good company to work for
Production worker/machine operation (Former Employee) –  South San Francisco, CAFebruary 22, 2016
A typical days of work for me is fast paced movement. It's almost like your work is a days workout at 24 hour fitness. But i also learn a lot daily about the company and how machines are ran. Management is quite understanding and patient with their employees. My co-workers are fun and fun of excitement. just trying to pass time faster with great energy to follow. my hardest part of the job is the adjusting the heat of the bakery. The joy of the company is that the company loves to give back to their employees and also the community..
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Split days off

High efficiency and challenging place to work
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Elkhart, INFebruary 11, 2016
Managing two to three teams of union employees within a team of leadership using Lean Manufacturing objectives is challenging in a large high-speed facility. The stakes are high and the pace is very fast. It takes a certain type of organized leader to perform well. The leader must be strong in all aspects of the word: physically, mentally, and emotionally. The front-line leadership team and the technicians are a close-knit group that makes working at the facility enjoyable.
Pros
Stability of work
Cons
work many holidays
