I have been working at Hostess Brands

Pros

Benifits,and thats only there thanks to Teamsters Union.

Cons

Awefull Management, In the 4-5 years I have been there I have never been told good job, DSM,s and never get out in the market.
My paycheck has went only down since Ive started, almost back to training pay.
They are trying now to cut our commisions more.
Employee Moral is just the worst that I have ever seen

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with your RSRs from time to time, to see whats going on with your company.
Ask for feedback from your RSRs on whats selling in there market.
Check up on your DSMs.

    I worked at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility, depending on your position, supervisor, workload, etc.
    Fun corporate events every once in awhile
    Exposure to several brands

    Cons

    Run completely by the board (Ripplewood) for a short term financial gain, which means many bad decisions are made that hurt the business overall, but puts money in their pockets in the meantime.
    Very old-school mentalities--not laid back, kind of uptight, and plenty of discrimination

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek long term goals, keep yourself open to new opportunities rather than just doing things the exact same way you've done them in the past. History will repeat itself if you do the exact same thing that you were doing that got you into bankruptcy in the first place.

    I worked at Hostess Brands

    Pros

    Being your own boss ,being able to choose your own hours to some degree.The amount of money you make is dependant on how hard you try .The money I made for not having a college degree was phenominal!

    Cons

    The worst part is the long hours and not being free to have days off whenever you needed.And sometimes the weater conditions were very challenging
