    In this evergrowing economy this is one job that will always be around so the only reason you could loose this job rests on your own shoulders. Mangement is reasonable with their demands and expectations.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will work more than 40 hours a week but there is no con i really found with this job in the past 5 years.

    I have been working at Flowers Foods full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros working for this company

    Cons

    In the piedmont NC area. Branch Managent and Assistant Mgmt.are either kin or best buddies. And if they have a friend who wants a job, they will start harassing a worker that they have no liking for in hopes they will quit. Their most used words are, I'm going to fire you., I'm going to write you up, Total verbal harrassment every day and hour you are on the job. Very much a imtimidating and hostile company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to put their friendship aside that they have with the Branch Management and listen more to the workers.
