    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    you are your own boss to a certain extent
    you set your own schedule
    most of your accounts are already set up
    meet new peopl

    Cons

    make sure your inventory is perfect cause they will charge you back the following week no matter the amount
    your sales manager will always throw you under the bus when talking to your stores about an issue
    they want low stale and full shelves cause it's not their money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow a pair and stand up for your distributor. without them, you don't get paid.
