    Good pay for the work that you did, when you were done with your route you could get off early.

    "Worst job ever"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Interstate Bakeries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a job when I needed one, but I didn't like it. Going to some Wal Marts was a big pain as the person who ran the back door could be really creepy and make you wait outside even though it was raining.

    Cons

    Had to be at work at 2 AM and didn't leave until 5 PM . Management tried to tell us when we had to be at each store - even though some of the stores weren't open when we were supposed to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Glad you went broke, because you guys were just dumb as rocks.Just because you paid some guy who was supposed to fix everything, because you didn't ask or listen to the people who did the work, you went bankrupt.

    Pros

    Hostess Brands was a good company, with committed employees. The company was making positive changes to advance positive future growth.

    The company shut down; due to unresolved issues from strike,that the Bakers Union issued. The company rights was sold, in 2013. No field managers.

    Pros

    Easy to work with, not standing over you. Allowed you to make decisions without lots of red tape, causing a better flow of work turned out. Great snacks always available too. lol

    Cons

    Top was to greedy and flow of money to workers dried up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers as an asset instead of a monthly bill you need to cut down. Invest in them and you will get better workers.
