    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.
