I worked at Hostess Brands

Pros

The money was ok, a certain supervisor was nice to me. The products they carried were pretty easy to sell.

Cons

They change the rules for daily job routine every week it seemed. The hours are bad my hours there were 3am-1pm or later. No 2 days off in a row you get wednesday and sunday off. Everything that went wrong there seemed to be the saleman's fault upper managment didn't seem they did anything wrong. You drive vehicles that are more than 20 years old with no heat in the winter no air conditioning in the summer and all the maintainance issues you can think of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Know that the salespeople are the back bone of your company and not the problem all the time. You need to get them better equipment to work with like trucks, handheld computers, and carts to carry the products in and out of the stores.

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

    Pros

    They pay very well. They have good benefits.

    Cons

    In case of emergency the company will give you the ok to take off but when you return they will terminate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into consideration that employees' sometimes have emergency that comes up and they have no control over natural causes and if they keep terminating everyone who have family emergency that the company will continue to have a big turnover. Also PLEASE WEAR GLOVES WHEN TOUCHING THOSE CAKES, AND CLEAN BELTS WHEN BUGS HAVE BEEN SPOTTED ON CONVEYER BELTS.
