I worked at Flowers Foods full-time (More than 10 years)
Great Company to work for. I worked for them for 24 years until I fell out of Ryder Truck while running a route one day in 1999, I fell out of back of truck and broke my back, had to have 2 major surgeries but went back to college and would love to go back to work for them in a management position as I was in for 12 years before getting hurt. I feel I received fair pay for a days work. I would love to go back to work for them anywhere in the USA and would settle with workers compensation in Ohio if they would offer me a fair settlement as I would in Ohio and was state funded worker's comp instead of Employer self insured, SSDI has a program for you to try and return to work and I know I would be a great asset to their as I went back to college and got my degree in Accounting, Business Management, Quality Control, among others. Now is a great time to be working for Flowers, I was working for one of the earliest bakeries they bought out in WV which the plant I worked at is now closed.
When I got hurt the President and others were not fair in treatment of their management team, but they were removed from FBC of WV about 2 weeks after I got injured, but the new management kept me on the payroll for an additional 4 years when all they needed to was 6 months so my insurance and things continued.
Advice to Management
If you know who I am get in touch with me if you would consider let me work for the next 10-15 yrs as I know I would be a Great Asset to you, willing to move.

Interviewing Manager went thru the company details, currently searching for 3 Supervisors and 3 Mechanics who are able to work on every piece of equipment include programming PLC's electrical, mechanical and refrigeration. First impression's suggested the maintenance department had a mass exodus due to a lack in maintenance structure, or management, as this type of relation was unlikely to change, I felt it was best quietly bow out of this interview.
