I have been working at Flowers Foods

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Flowers Foods as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good Hours, Fun people to work with outside of flowers. Good Pay when you get it

    Cons

    Company tells you in one sentence to push product then in the next wants to watch stales. have created competition for themselves and now have no clue how to control stale. Route Owners pay for allowances and have no control on them so they continue to go up and up. Good job to get into the business but not a long tern career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to distributors.
    Get people in management that have RUN routes successfully.
