I dependant operator (Current Employee) – Newport, vermont – July 25, 2017
I have worked as an owner operator for nine years. I have worked closely with the sales manager for Bimbo and i ha e learned a lot about managing a business and building a strong route in the northeast kingdom.i have maintained a strong relationship with all of my custo.ers. i rake a great deal of pride in keeping my customers happy.
I worked there 41 years and retired in June 2017 because I became so worn out and broke down I couldn't do it any longer. Was told my retirement would be within a few hundred dollars of what I was making at the time (due to cutting routs and cutting pay). Before I retired I tried to get information as to what I would receive and was told I wouldn't know anything until after I had stopped working. Well today 7/25/27 I was told I would only receive $115 per month for retirement. Remind you this was for 41 years of work.

Very friendly place to work where hard work and good attendance is greatly appreciated.A lot of overtime during summer season when schedule changes on daily basis. Opportunity to learn new jobs with help of experienced operators and knowledgeable management team. Guaranteed 40 hours a week for full time employees.
Work for an Independent distributor has its advantages and can be fun. Coordinating with store managers and always vying for additional product space.
Independent Contractor and Distributor (Current Employee) – Merritt Island, FL 32952 – July 19, 2017
A good place to work with minimal supervision however, it requires a close attention to detail and striking a careful balance to ensure appropriate inventory availability and conforming within a product return metric.
Not macro-managed and able to set your best practice and work processes
part-time work and not a route owner. Compensation is another consideration
OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – July 18, 2017
Bimbo was a great place to work, at least in Sioux Falls. I was compensated well but the hours and days working are not always the most desirable. I am leaving Bimbo Bakeries because of a plant closure.
shift for mechanic's was12 hours and started as 2 on 1 off due to being short handed management was aware of this but did noting to help,so mechanic's worked 60 hours a week and picked up the slack of someone calling in sick .i was promised I would be shifted to days after fully staff based on seniority never happened . told that I was too experienced to be on days was needed on nights to keep managers from being called in ,, get it in writing
Bimbo Bakeries USA is a company with good benefits and good work environment, but in the depot area there is no opportunity for growth, since expressing the desire to grow in the company, creates a hostile environment on the part of the superiors towards the employees. I worked for almost two years and in the moment I expressed my desire to grow; Everything changed on the part of my superior disqualifying my work performance, until getting the dismissal.
Good pay, free breakfast sometimes
Short break, non opportunities to grow in the company
Good company to work for however it is longer than a 40 hour week. you are salaried and on call 24/7 if you are in management. not enough training on computer programs only safety programs. Computer programs consist of a manager over you saying click here click here and here.... no formal training.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Elkhart, IN – July 12, 2017
Long Hot days. Rotating days off/Split days off. Work nights, weekends and holidays. Bad work/life balance. Too much paperwork and non value added work making continuous improvement efforts and waste and downtime reduction difficult. High turnover rate and high absenteeism. Hard to keep the lines running with minimal workers. Need more staffing from office to leadership to production workers. This company is trying to do too much with not enough people to get the work done. Salary is good, extra straight pay if working 4 hours over your shift. No bonuses. Does give yearly raises. Forced to go to different shifts with a days notice. Poor communication and unprofessional.
Mixer/Scaler (Former Employee) – South Sioux City, NE – July 10, 2017
A typical day at work always consisted of boring routine work. Management was very lazy and tried to do as little as possible by assigning those below them the duties which were supposed to be for them.
