    Current Employee - Retail Outlet Clerk

    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.
