Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 31, 2018
Fast paced and very productive, my working staff was very supportive and easy to manage. Shipping coordinating was made easy at Bimbo Bakeries, USA. The management staff at Bimbo was very supportive. The work place culture was very conducive to our shipping environment.
a lot of theft going on within the Topeka plant, only leadership gets to work 40 hours a week, zero communication about what is happening within the plant and your day to day responsibilities change often which makes it hard to get very much done or learn your job well. turn over is 47 percent
I enjoyed my years as a manger at Bimbo Bakery. I learned several skills daily in which i use everyday in transitioning into daily tasks and actions i complete. I also enjoyed helping my customers. they enjoyed me as well.

Grupo Bimbo is the world’s largest baking company and operates in 22 countries. This plant control system processes about 200 loaves and 2000 buns per minute. Any downtime results in significant damaged product. Working with urgency is ever-present.
Pros: Pretty much 8 hours a day Competent Peers Pretty Good retirement package, but does not allow for contributing to the pension to develop a better retirement.
Cons: Never at home on weekends Day shift only accessible by seniority No opportunity for input to provide a better schedule for everyone. Very little opportunity to obtain resources to support innovation.
I loved working for Limbo and I would love to go back. I was there through a Temp Agency for a 45 day project. I want a permanent position. Permanent individuals make alot of hours I would most definitely love that.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – January 17, 2018
Would be a top notch employer if Production Managers and Plant Manager would LISTEN to the ideas of the Line Supervisors and line staff. This plant seems to also have issues maintaining the equipment and keeping it in good working order.The maintenance staff and its supervisors also do not care to listen or take suggestions from the line staff, which operate the machines everyday.
John Smith, Supervisor (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA 17111 – January 16, 2018
Working on the dock is physical and stressful. There are time limits to get product shipped out, If a tractor trailer is running late , it holds up the whole process of getting the product out on time.
