Independent Bread Distributor (Former Employee) – Carterville, IL – May 8, 2018
Typically day started at 3am. Most days were 14+ hours long. Management was very demanding. Few days off. Hardest part of the job was very little rest. Enjoyed being an independent distributor in theory however I felt that the company had to much say in how I ran my business.
Enjoyed working with store managers and bakery managers.
Not being able to make needed changes to my route.
Very fast paced environment calling on customers and insuring that they have the product they need for their business. Most manager's manage 10 to 15 Independent Business Partners (Independent Operators).
Excellent benefits including company car.
Long Hours and phone calls at all hours of the day.
Reviewing daily/weekly sales and waste results, spending time in the market visiting various accounts Daily conference calls with various leadership within the organization Company works very well together as a team Holding business partners accountable for operating an efficient business is very challenging. BBU is the worlds largest baking company selling iconic brands consumers desire.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 27, 2018
Need to have Hero mentality to survive and be really good at multiple tasking and problem solving. Management is constantly changing.and departments don't communicate together. Corporate VP's and RVP's are great people with strong values it just don't make it to the plant level at this location.
Will invest into further training and Education
Long hours, Little to no Compensation for people who go the extra mile.

If you enjoy a fast pace and the day to go by quick and work long hours, this is a good place to work. Pay was very competitive for the area. The Management could work a little more to provide more of a work/home balance
