    Interview

    Went in to find the HR Manager was in Orientation and no one knew I was to be interviewed. Things got fixed after about 15 min of them researching. The interview itself was a joke, nothing out of the ordinary. Seemed as though they were not prepared not seemed interested in interviewing. No mention of walking the plant. Bad Sign.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hostess Brands (Chandler, AZ) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty easy since I very much understood the business. I sat down and talked to the District Sales Manager and then he offered me the job. If I knew at the time that Hostess would go out of business in a little more than a year, I would have went somewhere else.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Hostess Brands.

    Interview

    When I was hired on with Hostess, you needed to know someone in order to get in. Many people got in either through family, or through friends. Some people who had been within some aspect of the business (whether it be cake, bread or beverage sales) made their own way in. No difficult in the interview process, mostly do you think you can stand and bend and lift all day.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hostess Brands.

    Interview

    Applied online. Typical bureaucratic process. Was very difficult to get a hold of them after the interview. They were very stand offish. Eventually, much to my surprise, I had heard nothing from them after waiting for a very long time. I would not really recommend them because it was difficult to get a hold of contacts and they were unreliable in the process.
