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 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You make good money , everyone has great personalities, fun, dont let the "warehouse" fun fool you though , Its very hard work long hours for most . If you dont mind waking up by 1 or 2 a.m I would recommend it . You meet all kinds of great people out on the route .

    Cons

    The only cons to this position is , that the company does not have their priorities in a row , well some of them . They make you service accounts where you do not make any money. We as distributors have never got an answer for why . You call us business owners , If I own this business why can i not decide to stop servicing an account that only makes us lose money ? what business owner wants to service an account that does not provide them revenue? The company makes u waste your time money and energy doing these accounts . They try to push the Tasty Cake name anywhere and everywhere possible even if it doesnt sell ...... Why ? Trying everything possible to make a profit on a company they purchased , that wasnt worth it .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP MAKING US SERVICE NON PROFITABLE ACCOUNTS !!!!
