    no sick days. long hours. hot in the summer. most trucks have no A/C. IBC has been in bankruptcy for the last 3 yrs and still has not pulled out of it.

    Pros

    Learned a great deal there.

    Cons

    They closed their doors for good. Both management and the unions were fanatically at odds. Management dissipated countless opportunities to turn things around. In the end the misguided baker's union, led by a few old school union brass, brought the entire company down. It was a pity. The products were still great.
