I have been working at Hostess Brands

Pros

Hostess has solid financial backing and solid brands. Everyone wants to see the company succeed. Employees are loyal and hardworking.

Cons

The company has not successfully grown revenues. Its market share and quality are currently too weak to develop positive momentum.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a fresh look at the company's assets (brands, infrastructure, employees, etc) and the market opportunity and reevaluate what key initiatives should be. The emphasis on brands and Path to Market has not been successful so far.

    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.

    Good company and people to work with, but the union contracts crippled them.
