    Pros

    Fun group of people to work with. Enjoyed my time! Great free cookies available every morning.

    Cons

    Management's expectations were quite lofty with the resource constraints in the organization. Not easy to hit the mark on a regular basis and exceed expectations

    I worked at Otis Spunkmeyer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Benefits were good, Great People to work with. The Cookies and Muffins were amazing.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours - Management is allowed to bully and make threats while HR did nothing. Little to no appreciation of coming up with new process for efficiency to process.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always listen to your network of friends you should hear both sides of the story and make your decision based on what's best for the company and not buddies.

    Pros

    Great job. I enjoyed working at the Indianapolis Sales Center. I was employed there for about 3 1/2 years.

    Cons

    Since the sales center was so small, there was no room for further growth. The last I heard was that the corporate office closed all the sales centers.

    Company was very people-oriented. Salaries were good, management good and a good work atmosphere.

    You lost great people...it's not always about money.

    I worked at Otis Spunkmeyer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work, did your own thing for the most part. the pay was decent can't really complain about that aspect.

    Cons

    They always expected you to come in and do overtime. There will be a month where you work everyday and they get mad when you call in because sometimes you just need a day off. and they have a lot of Temps working there who could sealy cover your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you can get out there and give them a reason to want to work instead of just working for a pay check.

    Pros

    The staff people are nice. The cookies are great

    Cons

    The managers lack people skills and yell a lot. No training is available. The benefits are average at best but be prepared to payout out of pocket. Some of the managers are real pieces of work. The facilities are outdated and worn looking.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with the staff. Treat them the way that you want to be treated.
