Pros

Fast growing company. Some day we (R/O) might make money.

Cons

Company growing on the backs of the route owners.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help the route owners before they go bankrupt, can not afford to keep up with growth of low volume accounts.

    I have been working at Flowers Foods

    Pros

    Money can be good. Working without a supervisor watching over me(When they are not out to get you.) Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    No benefits. 24/7 on call. Poor communication from sales management. Complicated pay checks(Too many unexplained charges/changes.) Sales management started to really try and dictate our schedules in 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate directly to distributors and not through sales managers. Stop micromanaging distributors.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
