i turned in my resume on the first day, got an interview within 4 days for production technician. the pay is really good, about 14 per hour with quick raises but the hours are going to be terrible. right now they are saying days off are mondays and fridays only and on the days you work the schedule is never the same. you might start at 6 am one day and the next day you work 3-midnight. not sure i want to leave my job for that, really difficult when you have a family.

Hey i work in the office at norfolk doing accounting. as far as in norfolk, va to work on the production line you do not have to have college exp. but they may have new expectations as far as the new plant. I know the plant in bardstown is an automated plant, where here in norfolk we are manual so that may be the reason for the experience req.

but more than likey, the college background will just be for engineering and production supervisors. I know they have people running test product in there now, becuase a few people from my plant have already been transfered down there and started last week.

I will update the more I find out, but as of now i can only tell you what I know.

good luck in the hiring process. i believe its going to be more like 100-175 jobs, not the 300 that i have seen in other posts.

i do know however you can go up to the plant starting mid april and find out more information

I have a friend that was hired on at flowers. He went in for interviews twice and was hired. When he talked to the head of HR she told him that only managers and technician positions would have to have two year degrees. Line workers should be ok without one.

Has anyone heard of anymore people getting hired at flowers? I just figured since they quit taking applications on Friday the 20th for production technicians that they would be hiring several people this week.

I went for an interview for maintenance. We went over everything, and I was offered a job. I declined. The pay was not as high as I had hoped, and the rotating shift for training wouldn't work for me. We never discussed the insurance, or retirement options. These might be good jobs for someone else, but I will stay at my current job for now.

Is the rotating shifts just during training? Do you know how the shifts work after the training is over?

Hello All,
I am the current Regional Human Resources Manager for Flower Bakeries. Much of my responsibilities are delegated to the hiring of new applicants, and the hiring process. I can not tell you how pleased we are to have the induction of our company into the Bardstown area draw such positive reactions, and a wealth of applicants who are more than qualified. Yes many positions require a two year degree; this is due to the complexity of both modern software, and automated machinery being used at the Bardstown facility. If you have not received a call back, please be patient. In this trying economy jobs are scarce, and we were not fully prepared for the exceptional amount of applicants and resumes that we received. I promise that if you meet the required criteria, you will receive a call from one of our representatives. I can not divulge information about salaries or pay scales, as this information is confidential. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I will respond as thoroughly as possible. Thank you for welcoming the Flower Bakeries family in to beautiful Nelson County. Have a great day.
