    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Benifits
    Easy Job
    Great Co workers
    Good Hours

    Cons

    Messy General Management
    Lies about hours
    Bad communication with management
    Unclear directions most of the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hiring general managers who will help solve issues and not keep the mess going! Also need to not be so secretive about the pay between employees and dont lie to new hires about the hours they will get and not follow through with it.

    Word to people wanting to work here beware of favoritism. I worked for a new specialty store inside Bush IAH through this company. Long story short hours went from full time to very part time within first 2 weeks of us being in business! Also employees were allowed to do certain things and still have their job. It was not fair to the HARDWORKING employees that were there. General Manager played favorites and she helped keep up most of the drama. SMH thats why I left other than that I had some great co workers and met some good people so my advice is get in and get out DO NOT TALK ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE WITH MANAGEMENT UNLESS YOU WANT ALL EMPLOYEES TO KNOW.

    I worked at Hudson Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees and even customers would always make the work day a bit easier. Pay wasn't the worst but it also could've been better.

    Cons

    Upper management. As a outside hire for supervisor, several of our managers seemed to have it out for me just on the basis of someone that would kiss up to them didn't get promoted and I got the job instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings.

    Pros

    had gratifying customer service memories. Great and respectable international customers all around.

    easy to do job if you are great with customer service.

    Cons

    no real growth advancement opportunities. no recognition at all from management if you're doing a great job.

    pay is BAD; Management and HR are very dishonest.

    You have to initiate into a union .. it is a thing they DO not tell you . benefits are given after 6 months..

    managers are NOT professional .. degrading employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not LIE to your employees; they will find out how wrong you did them. Illogical to have dissatisfied employees.

    make incentives in order to promote a higher degree of employee satisfaction

    hire managers that are reputable to where they actually LEAD a team.

    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Peers are fun to work with. Many employees work for the company for many years.

    Cons

    Executives don't have a clue. They are bullies, communication is at 3rd grade level, they lie constantly, contradict themselves and policy, no strategic plan, and they lack education and professional development. In addition, there are almost no women at the VP level. No opportunity for promotions unless you're a man.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire 90% of the top executive team. Apply all of the information that is taught at the annual conference to leadership practices, and if VP's violate, take action. Treat your employees with respect ALL of the time, not just for show. All employees should get first dibs on job openings. There should be ongoing department training and an employee pipeline program for promotions.

    I worked at Hudson Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    In JFK terminal 4 The general manager and assistant general managers and the a holes who work in the office are the most disgusting, unprofessional and sickening people I have ever met in my life. Not one of them tells you anything to your face, they play both sides and talk about you behind your back like a bunch of school children, then have the balls to ask for favors. No one communicates anything in this place and its the most unorganized s--- show that I have ever seen.

    I worked at Hudson Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Its a little bit better than being attacked by a shark or struck by lightning.

    Cons

    Working 80 hours and getting paid for 40. Hired as a manager but doing all the work of the stock guys. Nothing is computerized, its like working in the 50's. Company is too cheap to hire enough people, so you're stuck doing all the work by yourself. The supervisors in the stores are uneducated and can barely read or write. the warehouses are tiny little offices so it feels claustrophobic. The stock guys in the warehouse are all criminals. So, if you like being taken advantage of and working like an indentured servant, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Some of the people working there are very nice and pleasant to work

    Cons

    Then you have the management team, whom are lazy and don't care about the workers but are more focus on making money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking coffee breaks and sitting on your behind the whole day and do some work!
