    I worked at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    Being your own boss ,being able to choose your own hours to some degree.The amount of money you make is dependant on how hard you try .The money I made for not having a college degree was phenominal!

    Cons

    The worst part is the long hours and not being free to have days off whenever you needed.And sometimes the weater conditions were very challenging
