I have been working at Boudin Bakeries part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Free daily bread everyday that you work.
Good assortment of food for lunch breaks or the likelihood of other fast food mall outlets to choose from.

Company is somewhat eco-minded using biodegradable starch-ware. Some store managers are trying to implement local recycling.

Friendly and fun co-workers.

Cons

Company Policy can get in the way of optimal store management and efficiency.

Customer Service can get rough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Policies, like laws are guidelines.

    Pros

    Immediate people I get to work are good with and the location is choice. Bread is good and the food is good.

    Cons

    Very few benefits, low pay and long hours. Health insurance through Boudin is extremely expensive, they have no retirement plans including 401k to offer, no personal time off, two holidays a year (Christmas and Thanksgiving), expect you to put in long hours for pay that is far below the industry standard. Senior management, who receive large bonuses and lots of time off, seem only to worry about that and making more money without regard to those that make it happen and making it easier on them and their families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent stays when the benefits and pay are at the industry standard or better. The benefits packages really need reviewed as well as time off for work/life balance. Not an attractive position with only two holidays, which we're not off, and no personal days.

    Pros

    Very smart people who run the company and care a lot about the employees. A high class organization with good souls.

    Cons

    Tough time with sales and growth is slow due to economy. Unfortuantely had to make some tough decisions and growth opportunity was limited, although there were some very well deserved promotions in the last couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on going - the economy will turn around.
