Great work, amazing co workers, and upper managment.
Floor Supervisor & Assembly (Former Employee) – Woods Cross, UT – 27 December 2016
Such an amazing job, and environment! I would go back in a heart beat, with out a doubt, no questions asked. The day would start by turning on the vents, do a pre run on the machines, making sure they were safe to work on for a full shift. Making sure everybody knew what they were supposed to be doing that day. The shop foreman was an extreme pleasure to work with. More than knowledgeable, and eager to share his tips and tricks. I learned to much to type it all out in this review. A lifetime worth a knowledge, really. The hardest part was working in the winter. It was an old shop, and wasn't properly heated. Working in 60 degree weather is rough. Still, no complaints. Just stay busy, and you'd warm right up! I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the job, so much it turned into being passionate about the work. The company went bankrupt, had it not, I know, whole heartedly, I'd still be there.
The first 30-45 minutes in winter, were a bit cold.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Salt Lake, UT – 7 November 2016
My typical day of work would be to create PO's and answer incoming calls from my 9 warehouses nation wide. I learned a great deal about purchasing at this company it was a great entry level position for the buying field. The hardest part about the job was dealing with a great deal of interruptions. I enjoyed the people I worked with.

this is a lovely place to work the atmosphere is amazing over all best job ive had, the people that work there are all lovely nobody has a bad word to say about anyone and you can also have a laugh while working but also see the professional side
A flexible place to work. It is a very strict atmosphere. You have to keep a very close eye on the vendors you are escorting. It is a very secured organization. The hardest part of the job would have to be watching multiple vendors in different locations at the same time.
Their Culture: You are in or you are out. You are told to "fight for right" but if everyone views you a certain way good luck getting that to change. If they do not see you as a culture fit and you do not abide by the Principles that Ray keeps adding to, then you are out as soon as you walk in.
Don't get me wrong, this is a great place to learn about self-actualization but the amount of stress bestowed upon you based off of what you mistakes tell you about you, is enough to drive anyone nuts. It is much easier as a consultant than full time.
My recommendation- go in as a consultant and do not convert. The benefits are great but the stress is WAY higher.
DO not plan on being here for more than year, if that.
If you are working with this company and opening a new store, think twice before you decide to work with them. They opened a new store in Austin in December. At first, it sounded like an awesome idea.... once the store was open and things were rolling, this place became the worst place to be employed for. There was so much confusion. One minute you are told one thing by one person, and the next things flipped. One thing you are doing a certain task the right way, and the next you are wrong. It made no sense. Morale was at zero within the store. I am glad I worked for Bridgewater because I was able to see the type of company I would NEVER want to be employed with ever again. Horrible experience.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – 11 July 2013
The work itself is good but the company has a high turn over and puts quantity above quality. In the time I spent in this company I have seen many good workers go while others who are unable to do the work or wont are given preference.
