Does Bimbo Bakeries offer stock options?

Pros

Really good paychecks. No micromanaging.

Cons

The bakery in zanesville, oh use to be a difficult job to land, with 401k, pension plan, stock options and great health insurance. Since being bought by Grupo Bimbo we get bare minimum benefits. No stock options or pension plan. The worst is the crap health insurance we're forced to have. Pretty much paying for everything out of pocket. Being a very manual intensive job makes proper insurance way more important. Not to mention that they add more business but not more equipment, running us drivers harder and harder, burning us out. Just a big corporation doing what they do best: putting profits over the well being of their employees.

Advice to Management

Local management are rock stars. We see you doing your best with what you're given. Corporate: Your workforce will crack if the deprivation of benefits and upward climb of work load continues. They need more equipment to do a more effective job and way better insurance to keep drivers from quiting. The benefits now make the job far from worth it.

No stock options or pension plan.

What are pay raises like at Bimbo Bakeries?

Pros

You can potentially make some money, but only if you work 60 hour weeks. You work your own schedule majority

Cons

You have to start your day midnight - 4am, warehouse is extremely unorganized and every one who works there has such an ego and thinks they're your boss. You technically own your business, but they screw you royally in every way. Every day you have stuff missing from your order that they don't catch. Your order is nowhere near in chronological order...BUT if you don't put your returns in order they freak out and cry and won't accept it and then you'll get charged for it. Constantly dealing with horrible store managers who have empty promises of displays, then you have way too much product creating so much extra work. Stores calling you 24/7 if one thing is missing or out of place. No real days off as you are expected to work backstock Wednesdays and Sunday. 1099 position, so technically yeah you can GROSS $100K easily. Your take home will be half of that after taxes, expenses, and route payment. If you are grossing $100k you are easily working 60 hour weeks. You're really only buying yourself a $15/hr job until you pay off your route 10 years down the road, then you'll get yourself a little raise. The hours are horrible, receivers at some stores are sooooo slow and hold you up for 1+ hour each day.

Advice to Management

Quit being jerks about the smallest things. Put our orders in order like the contract states. It saves everyone time and is easier to account for missing product. Stop looking us out of orders for holidays etc. We know our stores way better than you do and when you lock us out 90% of people end up with a ton of returns, costing everyone more time and money.
