work life of a salesman

Route Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time for more than 10 years

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

ConsLong 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
