    I worked at HMSHost full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Corporate environment. Great bonus system. Paid vacation and holidays

    Cons

    Worked at Ohare. Takes long time to get to your job, Basically wasted one hour each day traveling from the parking lot to the restaurant. Management staff don't have union and rest of the employees do, and that cause a lot of problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management staff don't have union and rest of the employees do, and that cause a lot of problems.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at HMSHost.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was flawless, and was told I was going to the second interview.
    Was called the next day for the second interview for the following day.
    I was interviewed by the district manager, whom off the bat did not like me.
    He said I was certainly qualified but he wasn't looking for that, he wanted to know if I could handle people?????
    Well that is all I do.
    I am a woman and he has all men managers? Hmm is there a problem there?
