What a Joke

Inside Worker (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Hostess Brands full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt was a good job before they took nearly 1/4th of the salary away Depends on what position you have for how many hours you work. Inside workers are 40/45, route sales are 60+

ConsPoor management. Use of cardboard that is thrown away after one use; there is money for that, but not to pay your workers. real nice. Terrible hours, wage reductions do not make me wanna work any harder

Advice to Senior ManagementBe a manager, do not run routes. Your job is to manage people and sell our brand. Not be vacation relief

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