Contractor--pay is not transparent never know what deductions or what pay will be.
Independent Operator (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAApril 28, 2016
There need to be a system of check and balances with the District Managers, without this it leaves room for discrimination.
Pros
Independent

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

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

The schedule was in need of revamping. Communication needed to be better. Overall, it was a good job. I wouldn't mind working there again. I would recommend it to others.

I enjoyed working at the Golden Eagle Casino. I don't care for the smoke environment though. I don't really have anything bad to say about the casino.

No work/life balance. Phone is on 24/7
Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIJanuary 28, 2016
This job is very demanding and really hard to please upper managment. It's a 24/7 gig. Weekends and nights included. You just cannot get away from the work. Your phone is blowing up all hours of the day and even when on vacation you are expected to keep on top of things. Not a great place to work and there is very minimal advacement opportunitites.

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Ocvonomowoc WIJanuary 22, 2016
Typical work day consists of hiding from manangement because there are so many they are every where. When you are working the veterans there are usually in the breakroom for hjours on end .
Really hot working enviornment, veterans usually get the easiest jobs while the new people are worked to death until they hate it.

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.
