    My experience has not been healthy at all, especially because of the Manager.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI found a little flexibility with scheduling work hours.

    ConsThe company does not have a good team to work with nor does it have a good Manager. People are very unhappy there.

    Fast-paced, engaging work environment; but company leadership is insensitive and unappreciative.

    Store Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you work in operations, the environment is never boring. Working in airport retail provides constant stimulation; you're always faced with new people and new situations. And yet it's nice being part of a constant fixture that provides a helpful and comforting service to the passengers who come and go.

    ConsCompany leadership places a very low value on hiring middle/upper managers who have decent (and in some cases, even basic) people-management skills. The store managers and below who work under these guys are treated very poorly: long hours and constant feedback on what they're doing wrong, but with minimal support or appreciation. When smart, reasonable people are hired, they tend to leave quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA few years ago, GM's and above supposedly underwent "intensive" emotional intelligence training, with no perceivable result. Maybe try it again, but with real commitment? Until this company places a real value on making its employees feel valued and supported, and giving them the tools, training, and resources to deliver on what's expected of them, the best of them (and Hudson's best hope for the future) will continue to leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would never recommend

    Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFellow employees and even customers would always make the work day a bit easier. Pay wasn't the worst but it also could've been better.

    ConsUpper management. As a outside hire for supervisor, several of our managers seemed to have it out for me just on the basis of someone that would kiss up to them didn't get promoted and I got the job instead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like human beings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing to say the least ; Highly UNETHICAL company... MGMT has none of the values that Domizio says to have....

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    Proshad gratifying customer service memories. Great and respectable international customers all around.

    easy to do job if you are great with customer service.

    Consno real growth advancement opportunities. no recognition at all from management if you're doing a great job.

    pay is BAD; Management and HR are very dishonest.

    You have to initiate into a union .. it is a thing they DO not tell you . benefits are given after 6 months..

    managers are NOT professional .. degrading employees.

    Advice to Senior Managementdo not LIE to your employees; they will find out how wrong you did them. Illogical to have dissatisfied employees.

    make incentives in order to promote a higher degree of employee satisfaction

    hire managers that are reputable to where they actually LEAD a team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good pay but disrespectful co-workers

    Specialty Retail Associate (Former Employee)
    Queens Village, NY

    ProsThe pay is good for retail.

    ConsEveryone has an attitude, especially the sales associates. You don't do anything but stand all day and everyone is so bored that they just gossip and bad mouth everyone in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe sales associates are rude and disrespectful to new co workers. They encourage each other to talk back to supervisors and even the supervisors steal from the company on overages from the register.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing company with tons of potential

    Senior Executive (Former Employee)
    East Rutherford, NJ

    ProsTravel, challenges, a good place for employees that live to work and have no life outside of what they do for a living.

    ConsFinger pointing by senior execs. If something goes wrong, they attribute it to someone who had nothing to do with the problem to get the heat off themselves. Diversionary tactics to make them look like they are being proactive in protecting the company against lone individuals who are actually following the rules and have the company's best interest at heart. President is surrounded by ego maniacs who are more concerned with covering their collective asses than improving and protecting the organization. There are a few outstanding top execs. However a few rotten apples have been stinking up the place for a very long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a long hard look at those around you, and regardless of personal relationships, clean your house for your future and the future growth of the company. Those that have done harm time and time again are not a good reflection on your ability to select top management. Hold close to the senior executives and managers that would bleed Hudson blue for you and who have worked their hearts out for you. Don't be so easily influenced by the folks closest to you as all many of them are concerned with is riding your coat tails wherever you take them. Weed out the overblown egos, while their numbers might look good, someone who actually cares about the company could produce a better bottom line and employees from the top down would be much happier working for your organization. Get rid of divisions, and function as one group. Note the "challenges and opportunities "you attributed to former employees continue today, and in future, get to the root before deciding to cast people out. Everyone that surrounds you should be as passionate and as committed as you are and should be equally as outstanding.

    After Swiss Dufry bought Hudson Group company become prospective for everybody who want to have an international career

    Operations (Current Employee)
    Jf Kennedy Ap, NY

    ProsHuge sales turnover force you to be highly efficient and gives you amazing work experience (if you are young employee and willing to climb up the ladder).

    ConsStill "manually" run operation with overpaid mid-management who is mostly on high School education level. Their limited management possibility slow up the whole development process and create high volume employee turnover which is HR nightmsre. Only great store performance, caused mostly with superb travel retail store positioning on the airports, and not existing real competition on US market, keep whole company going.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart to hire professional and experience people and pay them upon same pre-defined pay grades and results and not upon personal relationship with upper management to move to next, more corporate level of organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
