I worked at Hostess Brands

Pros

You get payed on a regular basis
Health benefits

Cons

Good ole boys network
Management devalues anyone under them
Refusal to recognize good work
Does not give raises to mid level management
Very bad moral among employees and management continues to just move around managers and rehire people known to be bad bosses. They refuse to clean house and get competent management. The get rid of anyone who seems to actually care about employees and the company instead of lining their own pockets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house. Get rid of Sales Management, Bakery Managemen and almost everyone at Corporate. Make anyone who wants a management job actually work in a bakery and in sales for at least 2 weeks. Get rid of ALL HR employees and hire people that will actually work with employess and management. This will help temper the union issues.

    Pros

    It is a steady income and provided insurance.

    Cons

    The new upper management is clueless as to how a bakery should run, Our plant has lost so many good people due to corp, choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start compensating your employees for their time. Your management team does not enjoy 70 hours a week with no compensation. you make the bucks so should they!
