Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 11, 2018
Working for the Bimbo Bakeries has been a good expirence for me in someways. Such as teaching me how to work as a team and also it taught me how to care for customers needs making sure they are satisfied. It has also taught me to keep focused accomplishing my tasks going the extra mile.

Do you value your life? If the answer is yes rest assured Bimbo Bakeries is not for you. Unless you eat breathe and dream about poor quality bread manufacturing due to over run barely functional equipment along with a deep desire to be a company chew toy for no apparent reason. you will be worked to the bone dont expect to see your family and understand that seniority means nothing here. but its a great place if you know nothing and want to start a career in a manufacturing environment.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Lorton, VA – August 11, 2018
My boss was great, or I wouldn’t rate the company as highly as I did. The location was close to home so that was a huge plus. I worked as an office manager for 5 years and would have stayed at least another 6, but one day I walked into work and was told my job was eliminated, they handed me a box, told me to take my things and go. This company is all about $, but wastes a lot of money, then let’s low paid employees go...doesn’t make sense. I feel sorry for the people left behind as they have to do my job with no additional compensation. One of their corporate “core values” is “we value the person”. HA! So work for Bimbo with eyes wide open knowing you are expendable. Having said that I enjoyed my time there..just wish I still had a job, or any job.
Horrible place to work, generally poor management with no understanding of employee relations or how to actually understand people.
I work there (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – August 9, 2018
The management continues to cut corners in all possible ways leading to food safety violations among other things all to try and save a dime. Instead they are willing to add plastic into the food because they feel the need to reclaim old product even after it has been wrapped in plastic. The relationship between the union and management is horrible and union members are not given enough latitude to participate in the decision making process. Union members who do not contribute are tolerated to such an extent that all members slowly lose the will to contribute. Reporting of key process indicators is formulated to tell any story they would like during any given week and most weeks the information is not useful to properly determine decision making. Generally hot and dirty conditions very similar to working in a sweatshop.
Free bread and rolls up to 2 packages per day worked if you desire.
Short breaks (10 minutes), Short lunches (30 minutes), No room for advancement unless you know the right people, HR not existent instead directed to board on the wall, Response on days off and vacations are generally slow
Great company to work for with room for advancement

Company cares about you as a person. Work/life balance is great. Able to work from home when necessary. We have an inclusive culture that promotes diversity. I love coming to work everyday. I am not bored. Every day is different. They company provides and encourages learning oppurtunities. Pay rate is excellent for our area.Corporate communicates Business Status on a monthly webinar so everyone knows what is going on with the company. They have fantastic Health initiatives to encourage and help their associates live a healthy lifestyle. My co-workers, including management staff and hourly production/maintenance associates are like my family. I feel appreciated.
Flex schedule/ ability to work from home when necessary
Sales Lead (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 5, 2018
Thought working for the largest bakery would have it's benefits and challenges. Seems Corporate and Management does not follow through on their commitments. They promise you follow up's and feedback but nothing ever gets done. I would expect better from a company which I thought prides itself their employee's.
Poor Management - Working Hours - No follow through

I got this job out of college for some money while I could look for a job in my career field, I worked here for 2 months until I decided to quit, due to long days and more importantly long nights finally took a tole on my body and couldn't go in for a few days before I quit with a tear in my shoulder.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Glendale Heights, IL – July 23, 2018
Bimbo Bakeries Usa is an extremely big company, I learned to be successful and work very hard, job itself could very challenging, stressful, and physical. I did enjoy the job because you meet new people everyday and learn to speak and help customers but also worked many hours including days off.
