    I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Benefits are good before salary. Once you get to salary you pay more and have a higher deductible. Pay is good. Overall the company is good and has Core Values and Beliefs. The Majority of the Management Team are genuinely working to empower everyone to be successful and elevate.

    Cons

    Accountability is enforced unless you are an exemption( sounds contradictory but this is how it works). You can advance but with the wrong manager you will stay stagnant and reviewed by a personal notion versus professional and their apprehensive attitude toward your progression into a higher role makes one question if you should be at the company or not. Which is sad when you are clearly an asset that is recognized throughout the plant and also with the upper Management staff. I guess I just got put in a position with an inexperienced manager that doesn't actually know how to be unbiased and doesn't know how to actually appreciate the hard working individual they have.

    I have been working at Bimbo Bakeries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent starting pay which can quickly max out but than that's it. No more raises and not much room for advancement it seems. Plenty of hours to work and if you have no kids or significant other, and dont care to see your family than you will thrive. Im told the benefits are good but i dont know yet. The longer you are here you can have up to 6 weeks vacation.

    Cons

    Training is non-existent. People that have been here for years are miserable, hate the company, and have no interest in training you, explaining thins in detail, or answer questions. If you have kids or other regular, solid commitments, this is NOT an employer for you. The pay is also not enough to afford daycare or your significant other not having to work. Kiss seeing family or wanting to do anything goodbye. Even having consecutive days off is a distant dream. Baker's Helper means your schedule is always in flux and you never know what you'll be doing day to day, week to week. From what im told that can last years. The job i applied for was Machine Operator, which morphed into Baker's Helper during the hiring process, and by week 2 i was mopping floors, cleaning toilets, and not learning a single thing about the machinery or processes. I feel i did something to be punished. Im not quite sure what the union does other than collect money from you. Holidays off are not guaranteed, you are voluntold to work 4 hours OT if someone calls out. Sure, this all means extra money, but only if you fill out proper paperwork and dont have to be home in time to watch your kid so your wife can head to work. Nobody, outside of management, is happy here. And even management being happy is questionable. Its s very toxic and soul crushing environment to which your supervisor's advice is "ignore it". There's also constsnt talk of locations getting shut down. This talk has been supposedly going on for years so take it how you will but it means there is no job security. People's favorite expression here is "that's not my job". The 3 shifts are not 1 team. They blame others for everything, do not work together, do not communicate well and do not work cohesively. The right things are said for safery and one team, but it seems to be words to cover managements responsibilities and little else.
