    Bought a loaf of Wonder Classic White, and it has more holes than a block of Swiss cheese! How in the Hell does a bread company not know how to make a proper loaf of bread?

    We buy Sara Lee 100% whole wheat in Bakersfield CA. The bread there is excellent and stays fresh and soft for almost a week. It doesn't have the holes in it like you have described. When we buy it in Fresno CA it has the holes in like you describe and dries out immediately. I have tried to contact someone in the company that can correct this with no success.

    my name is Patrick. I work for ABM Indust. and do shipping for Flowers in Bradenton ,Fl.In Jan. I decided to retire in March of 2020.I have been there for 9 yrs..I took 1 week vaca. in Feb. which left me with 2 weeks left.In Feb. 2020 ABM changed all it,s vaca. pay policies.I now have to use the 2 weeks because there is no payout for someone retiring.So my last planned day of work would be 3/27/20 and the next 2 weeks would be vaca.which was approved in Feb. by Barry Twitchel my supervisor and Bodie Williams my HR rep..I worked the first 4 weeks of the COVID19 being in Fl..Week 5 of the covid19 Flowers decided to give everyone a $250.00 bonus. I was told by my HR B. Williams that I would not be getting the bonus because I was not an active worker.I will receive a check from ABM with taxes taken out for my last 2 weeks of vaca. I am still an ABM employee...I just happen to be on vaca.till 4/10/20 and am entitled to the bonus money.I give them 9 yrs. of impeccable,dependable and loyal service. And now in these trying times Flowers wants to cut me out of something that I have earned. Never minding risk my life and health for 5 weeks.I don,t know if I have left this in the right place to be heard but if not maybe someone can help me get it to where it belongs .Thank you for your time.

    Just to let people know WHOEVER is MANDATED to work in companies during the Coronavirus company shutdown time are suppose to be getting paid $2 more per hour for hazardous pay/Pandemic pay. Just in case your company tries to mess you over, YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO BE MAKING $2 per hour MORE for HAZARDOUS PAY. Also YOU(EMPLOYEE) are suppose to be getting a copy of the email sent from the GOVERNMENT that was sent to the OWNER OF THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR. Jobs listed on government sight that is critical to work during the coronavirus IF THERE IS A MANDATED SHUTDOWN FOR OTHER COMPANIES. Which Tennessee should be

    Some include:

    Emergency Workers

    Food Distribution Workers

    Pharmacies

    Grocery Workers

    Truck Stop workers

    Convenient Store Workers

    Just to name a few

    DON'T allow your Employer to rip you off for something you are putting YOUR health, NOT theirs on the line for. EMPLOYERS so far are stepping up and doing the RIGHT thing for their employees IF YOURS IS NOT, it's time to find a REAL JOB, one that actually CARES about their employees. According to the government site during a pandemic if you get the coronavirus you can get workman's comp while you are off work.

    Sick employees

    I'm woundering why snack cakes are more important than your employees?? I mean without them you would fail daily.. yet you choose not to shut down for 2 weeks and allow them to be in groups way more than 10 and continue to be sick and have people out on quarentine and yet your answer is wash your hands? Thanks we learned that in kindergarten are you watching the news do you listen to the media at all people are sick and still packaging these cakes your sending out to the world.. yes this stuff is airborne yes it lives on plastic and food and metal so this must just be a total joke to you... is this how you treat tour employees during a crisis just to make your self feel better about being a billion dollar industry?

    I am wondering why there is a shortage of nature own and wonder bread during this pandemic when other bread companies are getting their bread out to consumers! Shame on you Flowers!

    The last 2 or 3 loaves of Wonder Bread I've bought at Walmart have been under baked because several slices into the loaf were showing signs of dough that was partially baked. I'm very dissatisfied with these conditions. You need to do something to ensure that the product is done to federal standards and fit for consumer consumption!!!!!!

    Hey Carolyn, does the phrase "Day Old Bread Store" ring any bells? If you want to ensure the best freshness, split the loaves into halves, and freeze them, OR--- Take out a Home Equity Loan, and go to the Supermarket/s!

    Disgruntled

    Good experience, and it's about the ONLY way I can afford the Nature's Own Honey Wheat Bread that I love, but I do have an "issue" with the Blue Ridge, Ga, outlet store. Since they have been opening on Sundays, they will not turn on their OPEN sign in the window. I have Texted/Voice-mailed/and emailed the Corporate Office, (Allison) and received neither a response, nor has the situation been addressed. If I had not read the note on their door that announced they would be providing additional service to our community, I, like many others would, no doubt, simply be driving by, and not purchasing your product. I'm surprised that they even turn the store lights on, on Sundays!!! Hey Corporate, does ANYBODY care????

    Does your company have your employees fill out a regular W-2 and then don't take the federal taxes out of it so at the end of the year you have to pay in they don't give you your paycheck stubs you have issues with clocking in and out you don't get paid for the time that you work I'm from Tampa Florida and I work for the Nature's Own Bakery on 50th Street

    Sunbeam bread used to be the best bread there was. The last six loaves I've bought has been stale. It's no longer fresh. Really wish you would fix this problem. Sunbeam used to be our favorite!

    Do you always allow your employees to carry on affairs with other employees, the Cleveland Tennessee, is the worst, worked there briefly, You have woman there hooking up with married men and they know they are, married, need to put a rule in effect not dating of employees, I could list off several people that, all the families this is destroying, because people more worried about hooking up then doing there job...
