A good place if you have nothing else going on in your life.
Shipping/Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Fall River, MAJune 1, 2017
Gold Medal Bakery is a good job with steady work year round, and good pay. However part time or full time, expect to do a 50-60 hour week as you will have no choice. Management is not flexible and will not treat you well in my experience as well. Do not expect seniority to mean much to them either.
Pros
High pay
Cons
Short breaks, 0 leniency, mean unaproachable supervision.

CDL Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYApril 23, 2017
Management doesn't take part in anything but dictating rules. No real structure.Job is easy but management and others make it harder than it should be.

Very good paying part time job for a student
Loader/Unloader (Current Employee) –  Fall River, MAMarch 24, 2016
Gold Medal Bakery offers a high hourly pay rate and a schedule that allows for students to be able to work part time while enrolled full time in school. By working here I learned a lot about working efficiently and the benefits of doing a job correctly the first time so that it does not need to be redone at a later time.

This is a good place to work if you are single and dont have kids. The money is good but working 12 hour days 5 days a week with no weekends or holidays off is alot to handle.

Great place to work.
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  West Haven, CTApril 27, 2013
Company is a great company to work for. They pay well and the benefits are good. During a holiday week anything over 32 hours is considered time and a half. Plus they pay you 8 hours holiday pay in addition to your regular check.

not a horrible job if you dont have a life
Driver (Current Employee) –  elkridge mdMarch 30, 2013
the hours are long, the pay is poor for hours worked( to do the job properly you are looking at 50+ hours a week on the average minimum) the job itself is not that hard. of the two managers, one is as helpful as he can be, the other will tell you anything he thinks you want to hear, but wont actually do anything meaningful to address your concerns.
Pros
its a paycheck
Cons
forget enjoying said check

100 year old company that is good to work for
Route Driver (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJanuary 13, 2013
Good company to work for overall. Holiday pay is always paid promptly as is your pay. Weekly salary paycheck. The only downside would be is if you get a time consuming route it can work against you since it is a salaried position.
Pros
not very stressful, pay is never a problem
Cons
can be time consuming on a salary position
