Advice to ManagementAdvice

Being a manager doesn't mean sitting around doing nothing and disappearing for hours. Help your employees and come when you are needed please. Stop favoring others and making friends with people who will disrupt your ability to be fair. Your employees are also human and not slaves.

    Pros

    HMSHost is usually good about working around any school schedule as long as they are informed of the employees needs ahead of time.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, HMSHost see absolutely no value in their employees. They have no empathy for any difficulties that arise in one of their employees life, specifically relating to attendance. If you get sick, even if you have a doctors note, you are expected to be at work. This includes having contagious illnesses such as strep throat, sinus infections, or the flu. This attitude is particularly concerning seeing as the job in question is primarily food preparation. Employees are the subject of punitive action upon failing to show up for work for ANY reason. Have a car accident on your way to work? Write up. Your mother has a heart attack and you're in the hospital by her side? Write up. Your child comes down with pneumonia and needs care? Write up. Six write ups and you're out.
       Even with HMSHost's tacky and classless policies on attendance, even worse is the workplace environment. Not only does higher management support hostility toward, gossip about, and biased treatment of employees, they actively encourage it. They fully support lower management picking favorites and antagonizing those who do not make the 'favorite' list. When informed of multiple transgressions in appropriate employee/supervisor etiquette, higher management will shrug it off as an overreaction of the employee. Even when they receive multiple reports from multiple employees of the exact same behavior coming from the exact same person. In my 2 years there, the ethics hotline has been called numerous times, at least two investigations conducted and countless reports made by employees stating the misconduct of managers.
       In general, HMSHost has been the most dissatisfying workplace I have ever been in. The environment is constantly hostile and the extremely slight increase over minimum wage is in no way worth the stress one has to suffer on a daily basis. I would highly recommend to any job seeker to spare themselves the distress of dealing with such ungrateful, uncaring, disgusting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There really is no advice to give. It would take a full shut down and purge of management to fix the plethora of problems this company is currently experiencing.
