    Really enjoy training with the Quality staff team. Very knowledgeable in some areas. I can never learn enough. I do see room for improvement though, which can be implemented down the line.

    Pros

    nothing good to work at CSM Bakery Colton. its all about put cake in the box even if its not good to be shipped out. managers like to fire people.

    Cons

    favoritism is a common practice. HR does not follow up on anything. Management are so urgent with non sense. not a safe place work at, a lot of accidents and managements does not care. no appreciation. firing people is management favor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to learn about managements

    Pros

    all bad about the company since it was sold by owner

    Cons

    earning decent pay is difficult when you make 10.00 driving forklift and you remain at temt status for the hours they require you to do before becoming ft employee, 5 hours to go then they move you to another position in which your time starts back at 0,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do your employees right and you will keep a great staff, until then the turnover rate will remain high.

    Pros

    Training opportunities and being part of a team that cares about the companies overall growth.
    The work-life balance is good.. the managers are considerate..

    Cons

    No issues with time-off policy...a lot of politics in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to employees who have a vast knowledge and experience in the field, is an profound way to cut cost and frustration on a project. Having a timetable is ideal in order to establish focus and timeline for every step in the project.

    This company has lost its direction and with being purchased by an investment company has added even more chaos.

    Pros

    The people are the best thing that can be said about this company. You will never meet a group of people who are more friendly.

    Cons

    The company while performing best in the US and is failing in Europe is following European practice for its North American company. The direction makes no sense. Average pay raises do not meet cost of living increase.

    Current Employee - Supplier Quality Specialist in Tucker, GA

    I have been working at CSM Bakery Products full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a great team committed to improvement and growth. The company, despite the hardships continues to offer employees incentives and fun distractions at work and beyond. We have company functions like our summer picnic and Christmas party, but we have the opportunity to get discount tickets to movies, Six Flags, Hawks games, etc.

    Cons

    The company has gone through more than it's fair share of major organizational changes in the past five years. This makes the environment feel unstable.
