    I have been working at Flowers Foods full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You make good money , everyone has great personalities, fun, dont let the "warehouse" fun fool you though , Its very hard work long hours for most . If you dont mind waking up by 1 or 2 a.m I would recommend it . You meet all kinds of great people out on the route .

    Cons

    The only cons to this position is , that the company does not have their priorities in a row , well some of them . They make you service accounts where you do not make any money. We as distributors have never got an answer for why . You call us business owners , If I own this business why can i not decide to stop servicing an account that only makes us lose money ? what business owner wants to service an account that does not provide them revenue? The company makes u waste your time money and energy doing these accounts . They try to push the Tasty Cake name anywhere and everywhere possible even if it doesnt sell ...... Why ? Trying everything possible to make a profit on a company they purchased , that wasnt worth it .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP MAKING US SERVICE NON PROFITABLE ACCOUNTS !!!!

    Pros

    Great product, great production, good distribution.

    Cons

    I/T not innovative, behind the times in technology, not willing to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone who can lead an I/T department and actually introduce new/improved technology instead of only doing what is begged from the business. Sure its a "Good Ol' boys" club and things have worked for a hundred years but eventually the old, tired establishment will pass into the night and then where will the company be?
