    I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None that I can think of. Pays ok, but they are cutting that, benefits were good, but they are cutting those also.

    Cons

    To many to list,
    Long Long thankless hours, split days (nights) off, working weekends, no life/work balance at all.
    Lazy, incompetent managers that hide in the office and send emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some management that can actually do the job, sell the company to someone else

    I have been working at Hostess Brands part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hostess Brands has benefits and are unionized, so you are protected. Also, they have an adequate pension plan for the time being.

    Cons

    Hostess Brands has filed bankruptcy AGAIN. It is a company with a lot of potential, but it is so poorly managed that it's being driven into the ground. Also, the job stability is no longer existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your workers instead of using them. We're the ones who know what the company needs anyway.
