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

    Pros

    Great pay and good benefits you are guaranteed 40 hours a weak and most of the time overtime is mandatory.

    Cons

    A lot of work related injuries. While I worked there 2 people lost fingers and countless employees suffered herniated discs

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to hide work related injuries by suggesting employees see a doctor on their own rotate positions every three months so employees can give their bodies a break

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Bluefield, WV

    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. I worked for them for 24 years until I fell out of Ryder Truck while running a route one day in 1999, I fell out of back of truck and broke my back, had to have 2 major surgeries but went back to college and would love to go back to work for them in a management position as I was in for 12 years before getting hurt. I feel I received fair pay for a days work. I would love to go back to work for them anywhere in the USA and would settle with workers compensation in Ohio if they would offer me a fair settlement as I would in Ohio and was state funded worker's comp instead of Employer self insured, SSDI has a program for you to try and return to work and I know I would be a great asset to their as I went back to college and got my degree in Accounting, Business Management, Quality Control, among others. Now is a great time to be working for Flowers, I was working for one of the earliest bakeries they bought out in WV which the plant I worked at is now closed.

    Cons

    When I got hurt the President and others were not fair in treatment of their management team, but they were removed from FBC of WV about 2 weeks after I got injured, but the new management kept me on the payroll for an additional 4 years when all they needed to was 6 months so my insurance and things continued.

    Advice to Management

    If you know who I am get in touch with me if you would consider let me work for the next 10-15 yrs as I know I would be a Great Asset to you, willing to move.
