    I have been working at Flowers Foods as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Hours, Fun people to work with outside of flowers. Good Pay when you get it

    Cons

    Company tells you in one sentence to push product then in the next wants to watch stales. have created competition for themselves and now have no clue how to control stale. Route Owners pay for allowances and have no control on them so they continue to go up and up. Good job to get into the business but not a long tern career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to distributors.
    Get people in management that have RUN routes successfully.

    Current Employee - Route Sales Owner in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Flowers Foods

    Pros

    Money can be good. Working without a supervisor watching over me(When they are not out to get you.) Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    No benefits. 24/7 on call. Poor communication from sales management. Complicated pay checks(Too many unexplained charges/changes.) Sales management started to really try and dictate our schedules in 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate directly to distributors and not through sales managers. Stop micromanaging distributors.
