    I have been working at Hissho Sushi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, flex time, relaxed and fun atmosphere, latitude to work without micromanagement, growth expectations, family synergy and great boss.

    Cons

    Dedication and loyalty sometimes taken for granted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to ALL employees for great ideas, not just a very few.

    Pros

    Employees are passionate about their product. Pleasant company to work for if you don't care about home-work balance.

    Cons

    Very little room for upward movement. Company is unorganized and doesn't run very smoothly. There are a lot of internal issues and quick turn around. Low standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It starts from the top.

    I worked at Hissho Sushi full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The things I loved about Hisho were the experiences, the hours, the pay, and the friends that I made and still have today.

    Cons

    The thing that frustrated me the most was that Upper Management was not aware of some of the things going on between stores and of food safety rules that were being broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in with employees more often. Do not rely on area managers to inform you of everything.

    Pros

    Casual work environment with great benefits and opportunity to grow! Hishso is growing and welcomes new employees with fresh perspectives. Lots of autonomy and opportunity to develop leadership skills. Lots of focus on employees and culture with lots of little "perks".

    Cons

    If you prefer a strictly structured environment - or a formal 9-to-5 job - you would not fit in well at Hissho.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to recruit top-level, experienced managers and those who can help drive the company to even greater success!

    Company with no professional attitude run by owner who does not value its employees or partners.

    I worked at Hissho Sushi

    Pros

    Unique business concept working with grocery chains. The business partnered with some of the best in grocery and you can learn a lot from these professionals on the correct way to operate.

    Cons

    Deception from upper management which created very poor working environment. Employees home and work quality of life, never a priority. Company did not give any sick days and only gave 6 days of vacation that you were not eligible for until 1 year of employment. Travel expectations were horrible, over 75% and after working a 7 day week with over 75 hours, you were expected to be in the office the next morning. You were also never fully reimburse for travel expenses, company chose what it wanted to pay back. Owner scheduled management meetings Friday afternoons and always ran them long. If the team was too busy, he moved it to Saturday morning. No communication between departments, company did not do anything to create a team atmosphere, owner aided in department feuds. Rather than just say no, he would give one department the go ahead to move forward with a project and then tell another department not to support them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the lying and deception. Learn what integrity is and practice what you preach. Learn to value your partners and the people who make your business run. If you make promises, especially to your customer, see it through.
