    Pros

    The salary was the best part of the job.In the long run it was probably one of the factors of going out of business.

    Cons

    Long hours and management never listened to driver suggestions to make things run smoothly.All the money spent on big wigs and nothing was ever fixed.

    It was a great product. I was sad to see it go.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees
