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 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.
