    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.

    I have been working at Flowers Foods

    Pros

    Work by yourself and are able to work without a supervisor breathing down your neck most of the time

    Cons

    They will give you a big allowance when you start and pait a wonderful picture just to get you to buy a route. Once you are there for a 6 months to a year they will start to cut that allowance. I work 60 hours a week and 7 days a week andI am only bring home $400.00 a week average. I was promised $1000.00 to buy the route. This is a real scam as I am seeing. I should have believed the other route drivers in Oklahoma city that told me this before I bought a route. This is happening to many of us here. Many more have quite cause of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your word. Relize you will make more money if you take care of the ones working hard for you.
