rode hard, chewed up and spit out

District Sales Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Hostess Brands full-time for more than a year

ProsThere is no best reason to work here. The benefits are sub par, there is no quality of life, you work a split week where you almost never see your family. The best parts are the employees that are trying to do a good job, even though we dont have the resources to give them

Consalways having to do work for other districts. DSM is almost never an actual manager, he is just a glorified route driver. upper management shuffles you around like a pawn on a chess board

Advice to Senior Managementupper management could not manage their way out of a paperbag.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
