    I have been working at Baldor Specialty Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They value their employees. I started as a temp filing and after 2 weeks became a permanent employee. They were the only company to give me a chance with no work experience straight out of college. I have learned everything with on the job training and guidance from my manager. I am now a coordinator in my department and still growing and learning.

    Cons

    The free gym they have for employee's should be bigger.

    I worked at Baldor Specialty Foods full-time

    Pros

    Break time. Some Nice people. Diversity is nice, get to meet many types of people. Cool food atmosphere with a lot cooking and cakes

    Cons

    Way too much work and responsibility for the pay. Most people hate it there except for the managers. Half the time people are talking bad about other people and the company. Deserved. People blast other people in emails to all, really embarrassing

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of that CEO Michael. He creates an intense atmosphere. He thinks he's playing around but most people are uncomfortable working for him and his antics

    I have been working at Baldor Specialty Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've read many reviews, complaints and rants on here about everything....Here is my story.......Yes applying, interviewing took awhile. Yes you need to take a test and be prepared to work hard....I stand outside on the dock and i see people from all over the world. People of different religions, people that speak at least 2-3 languages and of course my favorite the different cultures. I see new hires watching the pickers work in this Ballet of Chaos...I see new pickers telling the new hires how they learned these skills at Baldor. People that needed a home and needed direction and opportunity. I know each of there names and they don't stop. For you to understand any place you visit you must reach out and these guys and gals help each other and provide support to a company that dedicates itself to its people and its clients. I know their stories, we had six new babies this year and I smile when these people enjoy work and their own lives because they maintain the energy and dedication it takes to thrive. We have Team Members that come to us homeless, starting over, new career so many lives so many stories. One by one the managers work with their teams and they don't stop till everything is done for Baldor and on a personal level. Baldor reaches out to the community, school supplies was my favorite...and tonight the guys are bringing in stuff to donate to the local schools...I know right now you may be wondering if Baldor is the place for you....I won't sell you on the details but I would like a correction....Baldor does care. It was founded and still maintained and owned by the same family. The spirit of that family is shared by every employee. The opportunities are here but your commitment must follow you. Your dedication must show no matter what the task. A night in the warehouse means you will see hard working people that share the same goal....you will see a sales team that makes sure we all have a job.You will find managers and supervisors doing the same jobs their teams are doing. Most of all you will find out that the Leaders of this company believe in you and in me. This may be cheese to you but we live in crazy times and i like know my future is not only in capable hands but also caring.

    Cons

    These are not cons for me but I think you should know a few things...This is a refrigerated warehouse which means its cold. Its a 24 hour operation so perfect for any schedule. Yes its hard work but moving up is a company mantra so just apply yourself. Don't be shy must people at Baldor have worked there at least 5 plus years and they still smile when they come in. Be on time and ready to work......

    Advice to Management

    The internet is the void for anyone and everyone. Your a great growing company that shows concern and gives support.

    I have been working at Baldor Specialty Foods full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coming from a culinary background the kitchen prepared me with all of the necessary skills I need in my current position. Working a job with more traditional hours makes home life much easier, but working here still keeps me on the cutting edge of the culinary industry, it’s the best of both worlds. Baldor is a family run business and you have access to upper management that is rarely seen in a business of this size. The president of the company shakes my hand every morning and is always available as a resource or to support me however he can.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is a constant challenge. it makes getting things done across departments difficult, but in my time here it has improved and i believe it will continue to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the company moving in the same direction and the possibility for growth is endless. Today we're the best food distributor in the Northeast tomorrow the whole East Coast.
