    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay and benefits, Outstanding safety training (Kudos Doc!)

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, total lack of employee engagement and empowerment, any efforts/suggestions for industry standard process improvements are discourage. Generally, extremely poor "shop floor" employee moral.The only issues causing more concern than the facility's sanitation techniques are upper management's moral and ethical values. Poor follow-through by the maintenance manager to ensure adequate parts, supplies and training are provided, little support from all but one lead, one supervisor, and one assistant chief engineer my 2-year experience there (Kudos Nguyen, John, and Jeff!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better education and training in Lean manufacturing and Six Sigma certification requirements for Lead + positions would reduce scrap and increase production. A shift from "reactive" to Total Productive Maintenance would decrease unplanned maintenance significantly, reducing the need for mandatory overtime. Any planning and scheduling between maintenance and production would enable at the very least the facilitation of a ‘reasonably” effective preventative maintenance plan. The maintenance plans (work cards) in a majority of instances do not coincide with the equipment in place. Considering the facility has been operational for over 8 years (at the time) and this has not been corrected speaks volumes of the mismanagement of the department head’s lack of dedication to improve conditions, processes, and efficiency as well as extreme lack of education, experience, and proficiency for the position.
