This place is the bottom of the barrel. Nothing but empty promises to get you to take the load. Forget about a raise, this company thinks it's a small family owned company so they can justify not paying much, but in reality it has over 800 employees... Not a small company at all. Beware, SNL is a scam. Keep track of your money, they will short you on your check to keep upper management happy with the $1,300 weekly salary cap.

This is one of the worst jobs in the trucking industry, Brian and Carl are the 2 in charge and they are careless and will lie directly to ur face to get u in the truck and onto the bakery but will not tell u everything about the job. First off u have no route as they promise u when hiring and most drivers already there will tell u they get set routes after more than a year of beine there, u will then have subpar trucks and u will have to unload entire truck with 2 wheeler and load back up when done, this job does not have a pay scale they will pay what they THANK u are worth each week, this is a labor job posing as a driving job

Pros and cons NEW
by: Anonymous

I can tell you that I paid my house off because of the money I earned at SNL... About $75,000 a year for the last 10 years... That was just a goal I had to have something to show for the long hours...Your home everyday that is a plus... The hours are long and you will not have much of a personal life. You start off making good money so there is no raise. Very demanding schedule very demanding customer( Flowers Baking Company). You will have to constantly speak your mind with Management to get a route that best suits you... Watch your pay checks.. Overly complicated payroll entry leaves room for mistakes... I will say every mistake I caught was corrected...All in all they need Men to work for them.. You are independent all day long and again the money is good..

Worked in management. Drivers get points for every violation management can do anything they want. All drivers are looked at like they are worthless I can assure you all the way to the owner could not care about you. If your liked you will make money till you say you need a day off. Oh the run illegal a lot trucks are in bad shape trailers too. Bakery basically controls your hours and pretty much doesn't care if you have the hours to do your job.

They have health insurance - benefits - bonuses - vacation days - they care about safety - and they try to promote from within, you just need to tell them your interested. I like this company. and the Safety guy in texas is great he really cares about the us drivers.

Favorite drivers NEW
by: Anonymous

This company has their favorites drivers they get the best loads and they work the extra day days off are Tuesday's and Saturdays they do make you do your reset 34 hours the company hasn't given drivers raises in over 5 years. The trucks are in not that good shape the maintenance that fixes the trucks sometimes over looks your driver report issues over all this job you work hard unloading trailer that are 53 @ 57 feet long expertly on hot summer days. Sweat you ass off. You will lost weight

MY HONEST OPINION NEW
by: Anonymous

SNL,it's a good company for some ,you can make money as long as you keep comments to yourself,if you enjoy being home daily averaging around 1,000 a week then by all means apply and hope for the best,just remember your off days are Monday and Friday or Tuesday and Saturday you cant take a vacation the same week a holiday is present and you will work for your money good insurance great people to work around but try to stay away from parking lot politics and you will be fine ,unloading trailers is just exercise ,I am a current SNL driver and I approve this company

Good company to work for but they don't give annual raises but you start out with about 58,000 per year and home daily.will work every weekend so brace yourself for that.

They could organize and have part time people to work weekends or at least give 2 days in a row off instead either Tuesday and Saturday off or Friday and Monday, so good luck

Here's the truth,if you want a high paying job by all means SNL is the place, but, if you value family,weekends, holidays,you are coming to the wrong place.The problem is SNL lets Flowers call the shots,so it will never be organized,.Packout drivers have to wait all times of night to seperate bread for route drivers,it normally screws up there hometime but SNL has no backbone to stand up against Flowers Baking Company they dont care if we make it home on Christmas as long as the bread is at the depots,good insurance,no raises,Im not a bitter driver that has quit,"Im still with SNL but really consider your options b4 deciding
