I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

It was a good job before they took nearly 1/4th of the salary away Depends on what position you have for how many hours you work. Inside workers are 40/45, route sales are 60+

Cons

Poor management. Use of cardboard that is thrown away after one use; there is money for that, but not to pay your workers. real nice. Terrible hours, wage reductions do not make me wanna work any harder

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be a manager, do not run routes. Your job is to manage people and sell our brand. Not be vacation relief

    Company is outdated. More investment is needed to the front lines and bakeries to succeed!

    Pros

    Great brands!!! The company has the right pieces to be a success!!

    Cons

    The DSM job is over worked, too many items on their plate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people so DSMs are able to sell and do more to impact the bottom line.

    I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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