    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits.....that is it

    Cons

    Split days off and very long days (12-15 hours). Not all hours are logged. Float days are being offered, yet you are unable to use them. CEO should be ashamed of how awful route drivers are treated.

    Advice to Management

    Remember without GOOD, DEDICATED, HONEST route drivers your company would fail. With that being said, why not figure out a way to offer each depot supervisor the ability to rotate a Saturday off for their drivers. Even having 1 weekend off every 2 months gives a little more family time. Remember it is Franz FAMILY bakery, you have just forgot about the family part :(

    Pros

    money that's it! (pension & benefits)

    Cons

    Split days off, long hours, (they pay you for 40 but you'll work 50-60 it's amazing nobody sued them) preach "safety" just not your safety, thankless job, worthless management. This job takes a seriously toll on the body, many retire because they can't work anymore. Average route sales rep commonly has shoulder, knee, back surgery at least once in there career. Think about that........

    Advice to Management

    Seriously run a route, every time a manger gets demoted to route sales they quit....interesting. I hope the route sales add up all the hours of being unpaid and get a lawyer. We're talking HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS per employee....not good. I would not recommend them to anyone, no matter how much I disliked the person.

    Pros

    Benefits, pension, people, good product, not much else to be happy with in this company.

    Cons

    Hours, equipment is in bad shape, on your own no matter what, thankless job, split days off, management is in complete disarray, no leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Way to many chiefs and not enough Indians. Paper pushers need to actually see what is happening in the real world.

    Pros

    wage that's about it Franz is a good company but lacks in many areas I am happier now I no longer work at this company! not disgruntle at all was not worth the treatment

    Cons

    Poor treatment, rumor spreading, lack of professionalism in management and human resources

    Advice to Management

    Surprise visits to your bakery outlets. Know your human resources persons are friends With the managers and warn them ahead of time. It is a good idea to rotate human resources personal They fail the company when friendships with management become a detour in their job I have witnessed theft by management in abundance better figure out a way to keep an eye on them a lack of training skills by management AND NO SAFETY TRAINING what's up with that? The stores are just disgustingly filthy it is food clean it up get rid of the managers chair and DO NOT ALLOW CELL PHONE USE WHEN WORKING
