    Pros

    Awesome opportunities to grow and learn. Leadership in the region I’m in is accessible to all associates regardless of job title.

    Cons

    Silos need to be broken down. HR is a little stretched out bc the region is so large- makes it difficult to get to know some of the associates in the remote locations.

    Pros

    Good pay, union, great benefits and good exercise! Done early in the afternoon.

    Early mornings, long days, and expectation can be hard to reach. Sometimes too tired to spend time with family or do anything passed 7pm.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your guys on the ground. They care about their business, too.

    I worked at Bimbo Bakeries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, not much else there is worth mentioning. Could be a nice place if they get rid of the union.

    Cons

    Poor benefits. Terrible employees. The union fights tooth and nail for awful associates. The place continues to go down hill due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Push back against the union and maybe then they associates won’t run the place into the ground.
