Standard Distribution Center Work
Shipping Technician (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 11, 2018
Employees were friendly and hard working and expected the same of you. Being a distribution center, it was non-air-conditioned work, but the heaters were turned on in the winter.

Retail Pull-up Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEJanuary 6, 2018
I've been working for Bimbo Bakeries since, June of 2016! I like it, although during the holidays it can get kinda stressful and busy but, that's the holidays. Then it lacks off a little after that and, you can relax.

Great part time job!
Pull Up (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 2, 2018
For a part time job this is perfect. You do have to drive your own vehicle but you are compensated for mileage.
You are given a route that includes various grocery stores and supermarkets, where you stock and merchandise the Bimbo products that store carries. You are your own boss to an extent. You must be self motivated and you will be in a customer service atmosphere. Your work days are the delivery drivers days off.
Pros
Stress free and fun. There are opportunities for advancement
Cons
Because you are the backup for the actual delivery people, you do work most holidays

A good place to work, especially for someone in transition.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Topeka, KSDecember 28, 2017
GrupoBimbo has a forward looking and innovative culture. Mergers with other companies have left an environment that makes it difficult to interpret the vision, mission and overall direction of the company. Initiatives from the corporate offices are often poorly implemented as the local management has a different outlook as to the best way to manage and to lead. The work is as challenging as you want it to be. You can coast or excel in your duties with equal individual outcomes. Motivation seems to be a personal choice. I learned a lot, especially as it relates to the technical repair and operation of the machines.
Pros
good pay and benefits, good deal of autonomy
Cons
the schedule is brutal for a mother or father.

Bad company to work and Management does not help at all.
Independent Operator (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GADecember 26, 2017
A comapny that only cares about the sales you make and not about the person. Needing help from management and you feel in the jungle by yourself.
I personally do not recommend this company to any potential employee and or independent operator. The company will rip you off and all the benefits is for them and nothing for you.

A job for the patient and tolerable
Utility Shipper/Foreman (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, MADecember 21, 2017
It's a shipping and receiving job like no other. Good pay, guaranteed OT and great benefits. The downside is... well... let's just say the place is like a daycare for grown men. The good get tortured while the bad gets away with doing little to no work. And to top it off, the company does not care about you. But if you don't mind killing yourself for 10+ hours a day under these circumstances plus not being able to have a life outside of work, let alone getting decent sleep, on your day off. Then sign on up, power to you.
Pros
Good pay, guaranteed OT and great benefits
Cons
Everything else

relaxed work place
Shipping Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Maspeth, NYDecember 15, 2017
I learned how to use the electrical pallet jack there. A typical work day is mostly relaxing radio playing and everyone is just working hard. The work place culture is very diverse between shippers mangers and truck drivers. The hardest part of the job is keeping the truck. Customers happy when shipping products, sometimes all products are not receive and us as shippers were held accountable to make sure all customers receive even portions of the products we recieved.
Pros
Good pay and good benefits. Long breaks
Cons
Long hours
