Foreman Shippingesponsibili (Former Employee), Bay Shore, NYOctober 15, 2014
Pros: free lunches for safety incentives, tvs in lunchroom, bowling teams to join, softballteams to join
Cons: dental plan was not very good, heating system not working very well in shipping area
A day starts with the foreman setting up the work area before the shift starts.When the crew arrives to start work everything is ready to go for them. The hardest part of the job is when the production lines are behind schedule and as a Foreman I have to make the necessary arrangements so trailers do not go out too late. The hardest part of the job is dealing with Weather conditions such as snow and storms because of transportation. Co-workers are usually very cooperative and always offer a hand especially when things aren't going too good. Always got along very well with management and never had a problem.

Machine Operator (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKOctober 7, 2014
Pros: really excellent pay and health benifits

the job security is based on a seniority system, were the people that have been working there the longest have the freedom to move around at anytime and everyone else is left with the leftovers.

Great brands-No work life balance or upward mobility.
Manager (Current Employee), USASeptember 27, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits.
Cons: work life balance leaves much to be desired.
Great brands and a very stable commodity - No work life balance or upward mobility. Competing internal cultures due to recent aquisition. Management is top heavy and front line is spread too thin.

Horriable Place to work
Financial Analyst (Former Employee), HorshamSeptember 11, 2014
The hours were not great, you pretty much had to work through the night. Some days were definitely worse than others.
Management is too wishy washy. They don't communicate and they have very selective memory when you do tell them stuff. No advancement unless you are one of the chosen few. I worked with some good managers but when it comes to Higher management I had bitter experience. Unnecessary work, arrogant people and 0 guidance.
They are bad when it comes to compensation.

Very insecure supervisors
Production Technician (Former Employee), Breinigsville, PAAugust 25, 2014
Pros: can make a lot of money working overtime. fairly good benefits. gives three breaks a shift.
Cons: supervisors, schedules and boring work.
OK pay with lots of overtime. Must work weekends. Management fires employees just before probation period ends if they don't want to deal with the union later. Many employees said they never felt so insecure as they do at Bimbo Bakeries. Never know until 3 days before the end of week what shift you will be on the following week. Hard to plan personal life.

Pros: decent pay
Cons: everything
Faulty, Favoritism and Not Flexible-these are just a very few of the behaviors and work practices I have seen from this place. This is probably the worst job I have experienced. They are liars, falsify paperwork and discriminate. I would not recommend anyone work there.....PERIOD!

Great team communication
Oven Technician (Former Employee), Elkhart, INAugust 10, 2014
Pros: i was able to take a free loaf of bread, or a box of muffins home everynight
Cons: very little time to spend with family
Working in the oven area was very hot as one would expect. Also it was a very large area to run especially with just 1 person. This while tasking turned out to be one of the best perks to working in the oven. I was able to stay very busy for the entire shift. I used a radio to communicate with my team. I had great communication with my team at all times. They were great people to work with.
