Another upcoming job fair for displaced Hostess workers


The Greater Cedar Valley Alliance and Chamber will host a job fair for former Hostess employees this week.

The Wonder Bread bakery in downtown Waterloo shut down after Hostess Brands announced it would wind down the company and sell all assets.  59 workers at the bakery are out of a job, in addition to people working at the Hostess distribution center on Newell Street, and an outlet store on University Avenue.

The job fair will be held Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Schoitz Room of the Waterloo Center for the Arts, 225 Commercial Street in Waterloo.  This fair will feature approximately twenty local employers.

Displaced workers with an interest in careers in industrial positions including production workers and material handlers, truck drivers, warehouse personnel, and maintenance will be the focus of this event.
