Pros

There are no pros working for this company

Cons

In the piedmont NC area. Branch Managent and Assistant Mgmt.are either kin or best buddies. And if they have a friend who wants a job, they will start harassing a worker that they have no liking for in hopes they will quit. Their most used words are, I'm going to fire you., I'm going to write you up, Total verbal harrassment every day and hour you are on the job. Very much a imtimidating and hostile company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to put their friendship aside that they have with the Branch Management and listen more to the workers.

    I worked at Flowers Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with the independant distributors on increasing their sales. Health care benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Work week for Sales Managers average 70-85 hours per week. Averaged about $12 on high hour weeks. Company cannot convince any qualified people to in essence "purchase" their own job which makes it very hard to develop a competent workforce. Moral is the worst of any company I have ever been associated with. Have sat in on many interviews where prospective distributors are told they can change to better routes if one comes open....then when one comes open they are told that changes are no longer allowed. If you have a family, personal time is virtually non-existant and career advancement to other locations is frowned upon because they have a hard time filling the management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take ideas that differ from upper managements' for increasing sales personal. Help your employees grow by assisting them when they seek promotions.
