    District Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hostess Brands in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was more or less a casual conversation covering everything from prior work experience to sports and cars, before leaving I filled out an employment application as well as some other forms and awaited contact, after 2 days I returned to do a formal interview with the area manager and the HR department which entailed a series of "what if" and "tell me a time when" type of canned questions after which compensation was discussed. After the second interview I was given a timed computer based problem solving test that was roughly 100 questions which wasn't too difficult, I was offered the job a couple of days later.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hostess Brands in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    At the time I interviewed, I went through 1 with just me and the DSM, and the next with me 2 DSMs and there boss the state mngr. I went through a 3 week process.
    What I see now these guys come in with blue jeans and t shirts, I-View with a DSM, and a week later they throw them on a route and wonder why they quit ,and/or cant finish the route.

    It seems there looking for a warm body that can pass a drug test.
