I worked at HMSHost full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Bonuses are very nice. Free food. Great benefits. Excellent union

Cons

Horrible work life benefits. No room for growth. The culture is surrounded around the bottom line and not enough around the employees.

Advice to Management

Hire more Assistant Managers and shift managers. Start a training program to promote from within. Put more effort into hiring, training, and development.

    Pros

    Learned how to pay cut losses and maximize profits in one of the main restaurants under the companies umbrella.
    Great diverse work environment
    Great HR department
    Really personable. It really felt like the company cared about its employees.

    Cons

    Union shop. From a managerial perspective, this can be hell.

    Advice to Management

    Advice managers and supervisors to take more accountability for employees that use their seniority status in the union to basically be immortal to anything.
