On balance, it has been a good company over my 30 years.

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

ProsVery good pay for unskilled labor. Good benefits.

ConsInept management which has lead to our 2 bk's in 8 years. Lack of quality leadership at the top.

Advice to Senior ManagementClose all the thrift stores. Close and consolidate bakeries. Cut bakery management in half. Eliminate varieties that do not sell. Get rid of anything owned by Hostess Brands that is not either specifically Hostess or Wonder Bread.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
