    I have been working at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    Provides union wages and protection.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Physically demanding and dirty. Poor equipment and impossible customer service requirements considering they cater to government assistance clientele.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the over all picture instead of your departments numbers. Seriously listen to employee input and stand up to your own bosses. Invest in modern equipment and start thinking forward in a realistic way i.e., listen to the people in the trenches; meaning on the line, your rsr, clerks, etc. Too much paperwork and not enought time or reason.

    I have been working at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    The route sales and the sales force in the thrift stores are some of the greatest people to work with and 95% of them are really hard workers.

    Cons

    The suits in charge would like for you to think you don"t deserve to have a job. They also want you to think the reason the company is going broke is because some employee stole a paperclip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not up to the job, get someone who is. You may need to cut some of the huge paychecks and put in back into the company or better still use it to get yourself a research and developement dept. Oh you already have one?' could have fooled me.
