    I worked at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    They were flexible with my schedule and the two ladies I worked with were great. The pay was good as well.

    Cons

    I saw a lot of waste. Over baking thousands of dollars worth of product then sending it to the thrift stores to sell for ridiculously cheap. I can see partly how the company ended up the bankruptcy twice within several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no management left.
