Hostess was a wonderful workplace with great communication between employees in the office, the factory and management. Upper level management in a different location misspent union funds leading to a bankruptcy and defunding of many employees retirement. Most employees were let go in November 2012. The company closed and was sold to new owners

Room for growth which I did started as a packer, move up to machine operator, finish as a production foreman. Co-workers was awesome, management was awesome. The hardest part of the job was long hours which kept you from family, but at the same time providing for your family.

When the store was open the customers really brightened your day with smiles and jokes. You were eager to help them with the products. Then the company filed bankruptcy and you could feel the squeeze from the ceo.

I wish I would have had the opportunity to work there longer, it was a different pace than my previous position and I believe that there would have been potential for growth had the company decided to stay open
