I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The company has not completely failed yet but if current practices continue, it won't be long. Every now and again you get a free loaf of bread. That's a "Pro."

Cons

The incompetence at all levels of management and decision making is astounding. If I didn't know better I'd think they are trying to fail at what they're doing. They are disorganized, inconsistent, short sighted, and have no vision past the end of the day.

Advice to Management

Clean house. Keep home office personnel if you want to but clean out operations. They will be the death of you. Ever hear of the "house divided"? BBU is a business model for a divided house. You have no future going in 12 separate directions with each market trying to out-stupid the other. I give you 10 years and only because you have some serious cash backing from Mexico.

    I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees, Customers, Delivery guys, good hours, and good pay

    Cons

    We were originally Sara Lee Bakery Outlet and they bought us out and about a year after the buyout they started shutting down all the Bakery Outlet stores. We were one of them. :(

    I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits, every sunday off

    Cons

    work 12 to 14 hour days, start time was midnight. Management was terrible, I have had at least 5 bosses in 3 years. Job security is very poor, August they just laid off 6 route drivers. They forced all Holsum bread drivers to buy a route or they were fired. Poorly ran company that does not care about their employees. You do have holidays off but the you better be ready to work an 16 to 18 hour to make up all the work. Terrible place to work, Ive never recommend this company to anyone, I wish the CEO could see how poorly it is ran in Harrisburg.
