AS a worker they i estimate must lose in smashed caked because of retard loaders that put on skids and the bottom 3 rows all smashed even tho they been told they still smash the cake.Half or more orders have unaccounted cake they never ordered.This has to add up to millions you idiots.Those boxes used one time thrown out Dumpster guy come 3 times a week to unload.Painting 20 year old truck with a cheap ass paint job that wont last a year another genius idea.The routing like having guys drive 80 miles back but you got a closed depot right there.On AND ON IT GOES where it stops nobody knows.This is the most mismanaged company ive ever worked at its unbelievable the waste.They have to be losing well over the 5 million just in destroyed product bread and cake!Someones doing side deals on repairs and painting nobody could be that stupid(ya think)

Why are we painting trucks with over a half a million miles on them? These idiots that keep lending Hostess money without cleaning out the clueless management is beyond belief.
