I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time (More than a year)

Pros

None that I can think of. Pays ok, but they are cutting that, benefits were good, but they are cutting those also.

Cons

To many to list,
Long Long thankless hours, split days (nights) off, working weekends, no life/work balance at all.
Lazy, incompetent managers that hide in the office and send emails.

Advice to Management

Hire some management that can actually do the job, sell the company to someone else

    I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always Hiring, good benefits, good guys to work with on the average

    Cons

    I have seen this company change drastically. I guess I am old Now, I made great money here 20 years ago. Now, things are ran by greedy, dishonest , unexperienced uppermanagement, who have NO BAKERY distribution training. This IS ASHAME FOR SURE. DM's hide behind emails and texts, never go out on the market, demanding things that they have NO CLUE about. A real Bread Man build a report with their customers. I could go on and ON , its sad. so much waste.

    Advice to Management

    RECRUIT SOME OLDTIMERS, WHO UNDERSTAND DISTRIBUTION, this is not a soda delivivery company. GET SOME EXPERIENCE IN HERE. STOP THE GREED, STOP THE WASTE, NO WONDER YOU ALL LOOSE MONEY, GET OUT OF YOUR OFFICES AND GO CHECK OUT THE MARKET..OR IS IT TOO HOT??
