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

Pros

Free lunch, sick days, vacation days, health, dental, and vision benefits, chance for advancement, good co workers, decent schedule, some decent managers, 401k

Cons

Pay was low, Union dues, cost of health benefits, managers favored some people over others, some of the managers did not know protocal of running a restaurant. Some managers sat down all day and did nothing. Servers would try to boss you around and tell you that you were seating certain people a certain way and yell at you. Did not really promote from with in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work a little harder, write up bad behaivor listen to the lower employees. Move people to positions they ask for if qualified. Need to learn ins and outs of the business they are in.

    I have been working at HMSHost for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice Airport, Busy environment, Interesting cliental

    Cons

    Bad management. Almost impossible to qualify for benefit program. False promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value your employes, their experience and include them instead of making everyone feel like there is a constant which hunt. Plan for the cyclical cycle of the calendar. In the slow time plan for the busy, work with week links, don't act surprised when it gets busy. Get a manager that actually "manages". Someone how can build a team, moral, and sales. Not just police corporate polices. This could be an awesome place to work. Lets make it awesome together.

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

    Pros

    Free food every shift. The friends I made at my job. The job itself.

    Cons

    The managers are just as old as you (20-24) and they completely talk down to you and make you feel way less then a person. I was constantly harassed how I was not needed in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better, become trained, and don't take offense when your baristas know more than you do.
