I am Constantly Amazed

Pros

The company has not completely failed yet but if current practices continue, it won't be long. Every now and again you get a free loaf of bread. That's a "Pro."

Cons

The incompetence at all levels of management and decision making is astounding. If I didn't know better I'd think they are trying to fail at what they're doing. They are disorganized, inconsistent, short sighted, and have no vision past the end of the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house. Keep home office personnel if you want to but clean out operations. They will be the death of you. Ever hear of the "house divided"? BBU is a business model for a divided house. You have no future going in 12 separate directions with each market trying to out-stupid the other. I give you 10 years and only because you have some serious cash backing from Mexico.

    Pros

    * Decent Salary
    * Senior Management is for the most part very friendly.
    * The company is growing in the U.S.

    Cons

    * Terrible amount of hours required.
    * Company is not really trying to develop new and innovative products to compete with competition.
    * The company isn't handling growth well and is actually losing market share as a result.
    * Benefits are terrible, but cost you a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your management and evaluate your plant managers by giving subordinates an anonymous questionnaire. You might find out more than you'd expect to really help your bottom line.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits, every sunday off

    Cons

    work 12 to 14 hour days, start time was midnight. Management was terrible, I have had at least 5 bosses in 3 years. Job security is very poor, August they just laid off 6 route drivers. They forced all Holsum bread drivers to buy a route or they were fired. Poorly ran company that does not care about their employees. You do have holidays off but the you better be ready to work an 16 to 18 hour to make up all the work. Terrible place to work, Ive never recommend this company to anyone, I wish the CEO could see how poorly it is ran in Harrisburg.
