I worked at Hostess Brands full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Top selling product, both bread and cake. People always wanted to buy the product, often times it was difficult to keep stores properly stocked because of the popularity of the product.

Cons

When a company goes broke selling a popular item like twinkies and cupcakes, something is very wrong. Poor management

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
