Pros

Easy purchasing terms. No down payment, flexible credit terms. Anyone with a pulse can own a nature's own bread route.

Cons

Heartless management, dissapearing percentages has left me very little to live on. Some weeks because of slow sales, truck repairs or because they freaking feel like it; i may not even get a paycheck after 70hrs of work.

Advice to Management

Slavery is illegal in all 50 states. Treat us with respect instead of something you scrape off the bottom of your shoes.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free bread on Thursdays. Presidents PA throws great parties. Friendly fellow employees.

    Cons

    Say they promote from within. Depends not on what you know but who you blow. 2 years never saw a raise. Supervisors allowed to run off the best people.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those that deserve it. The problem is not the employees. Look in the mirror to find the problem.
