I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good people to work with. The pay is fairly good. The benefits (for now) are alright. Immediate supervision is decent.

Cons

Long hours and dealing with a lot of people who maybe shouldn't have been placed in a position of authority. Second bankruptcy for the company since I've been with them. Doesn't look like we'll survive this one.

Advice to Management

Get the bankruptcy situation resolved. Whichever way it goes is preferable to going months on end not knowing if the doors will be locked the next day you come in.

    I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good pay for unskilled labor. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Inept management which has lead to our 2 bk's in 8 years. Lack of quality leadership at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Close all the thrift stores. Close and consolidate bakeries. Cut bakery management in half. Eliminate varieties that do not sell. Get rid of anything owned by Hostess Brands that is not either specifically Hostess or Wonder Bread.
