Application

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bimbo Bakeries (Huntington, WV (US)) in September 2014.

Interview

Was asked to come in for a group interview. followed by a private interview. They were very detailed in describing the day to day job, including hours to be put in and average salary, etc. Any questions I asked, they answered in full. The interview was very direct and to the point and left no doubt in what the position was or what you would be doing.

Interview Questions

  • The hours where not what I expected. Starting work at 3am is not an issue for me, however 3am-5pm was a bit long... as well as work 6 days a week for the first 3-6months. Even once you get past the training, it's still 3am-5pm, ONLY Sundays and Weds off... no consecutive days off.   1 Answer

Reasons for Declining

I simply found the 3am-5pm too long for my lifestyle. as well as, yes the 60k sounds nice... but not at 70hr work weeks

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bimbo Bakeries (El Segundo, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I knew someone and that helped. I met with a depot manager for a brief interview and took a basic math skills test. After about a week I met with a very no nonsense HR manager at a depot in L.A. I sent a lot of time speaking about my managerial background which had nothing to do with the position I was applying for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation and poor communication between HR, management and about my start date.
