What is health insurance like at Bimbo Bakeries?

Pros

I drank the Kool Aid and believed that they really did VALUE THE PERSON only to discover that they really COULD CARE LESS about the person. Why so many reorgs all the time?? Fire/Hire/Fire/Hire/Fire/Hire/Fire ........................

Cons

Company going through ANOTHER reorganization! Lots of employees getting thrown under the bread trucks! So much for WE VALUE THE PERSON .................. NOT!!! Also benefits not very good and there is no health insurance plan except for a high deductible health savings account that you put your own money into.

Advice to Management

Stop pressuring your employees to lobby for you. I also refuse to read White Fragility!! (this is over the top stupid!!)

What is the retirement plan like at Bimbo Bakeries?

Pros

Pay is competitive in Production

Cons

Very minimal benefits, a failing pension and no company match on the 401k. The "union" at the facility I worked at is very weak and is in the company's back pocket. Work life balance is non existent, and the company refuses to restructure the schedule so employees can have more than 1 weekend off every 5-6 weeks. Hands down the worst company culture I have ever seen in my career of production environments, its appalling.

Advice to Management

Engage employees and include them. Treat them and speak to them as they are equal to you as a human being. Maybe something to include family. Employee recognition and benefits that will provide for employee's futures.

Does Bimbo Bakeries offer dental insurance?

Pros

Good talent working at Cicero facility.

Cons

After being dedicated to this company and working very flexible hours and unpaid extra hours, they treated me with disrespect. This was the reason I have decided to resign. Since I had one week of unpaid vacation, I thought that I should take it before the termination of my employment. What they did is actually terminating all my benefits including medical coverage after the last working day. Therefore, during my vacation I didn't have any medical coverage. They don't care about their employees at all. I was nice with them and answered texts and emails even during my vacation time only to get back a total lack of respect. Awful employer! never think to work for Bimbo Bakery at Cicero facility!

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees!

Therefore, during my vacation I didn't have any medical coverage.
