Fantastic opportunities for growth & development (both personally and professionally), great people, good benefits although too pricey, vacation/sick time is okay, flexible, offers tuition reimbursement (hard to find these days), free meals, opportunities to travel. If you put in the time, follow policy & procedure, get involved, work hard, are passionate, believe and stand behind what the organization stands for it is & can be a great place to work! F&B is a tough industry to be in!
Politics, too much emphasis on bottom line (yes it Host a for-profit organization), low level/ skilled management due to low compensation, we need to get better management on the field, too reactivate when should be more proactive, too many major projects roll out at once causing them to be ineffective or to fail, pay should be more competitive, more incentive programs needed for both exempt & non exempt employees, work/ life balance could improve.
Advice to Management
Listen to our FOH & BOH associates & value & use their input to help us achieve our company goals. After all it is the employees on the floor who know what works and what doesn't work and what customers want. We need to listen to our people more. Corporate needs to be more involved and offer their support to the field--- too much separation exists between corporate & field, this isn't wise.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at HMSHost.
Extremely unprofessional interview. I was greeted by a rude manager and then forced to walk around an airport terminal while he tracked down my resume, all the while being asked questions about my work history. I had a great first interview with a different manager, but my second interview was a disaster and I'm sure that is what cost me the job. Considering the location was at an airport and I had to come two days in a row and pay for parking, I was not pleased at all by the process. After my second interview, no phone call or letter to let me know they went in a different direction. I was just left hanging.
