    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. Decent working conditions. Somewhat understanding from time to time. Pretty fair on annual raises when one is being reviewed.

    Cons

    Expects too much as far as being a manager. Really No family time at all, Which they seem to talk highly on this. You as a manager are on call 24 / 7.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that one person can only do one job with having time to do it completely.

    The pay and benefits are incredible. Also job security is a plus.

    Cons

    You do not have a set schedule.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a somewhat set schedule. Possibly something like a Monday thru Thursday or Friday and then a weekend shift crew.

    I have been working at Flowers Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Your "Somewhat" out on your own all day. lots of overtime.

    Cons

    They are Comstantly not picking things. No personal life once you start here. If you don't end up buying the route your covering, you will be "Let Go" and they will make up some Fake Reason Why.. They don't tell you when you start that when the route your on is built up enough for them to sell and make plenty of money on, that if you don't buy it, your no longer needed. Ask anyone who owns a route.. They were once the same as you, Basicly a Temp because your not even hired by Flowers or actually Work for Flowers. You work for a hiring agency and They are the ones paying you..

    Advice to Management

    Stop contacting workers andet them work. They Don't know yet that the areal Reaskn your doing this js because you want to sell the route to them or fire them if they are smart enough not to take it..
