    I worked at HMSHost part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depends on who you work with. But environment was ok. Pay is decent. My supervisor was nice and my manager was sweet.

    Cons

    Just one break. Shifts be over 10 hours. And you only get one 30 min break. You have some favoritism and it sucks but it's life.

    Depending on your location and state, the hourly pay isn't at great as other companies

    I worked at HMSHost full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was treated very well at this company, but I wasn't there long enough to really get a feel for it. I was hired as a restaurant hostess, told it would take around 6 months to be promoted to server (they made the real money as they were allowed to accept tips) Everyone there seemed satisfied as they made good money for the job (a restaurant at the airport)

    Cons

    I kept getting assigned hours/days when they knew I would be at school. It was the reason I resigned.

    Advice to Management

    If you have students working for you be mindful of their schedules. They will perform for you better/stay longer if you work around their school schedules. High turnover costs everyone a lot

    Grow up and recognize the talent to 6 have!

    I worked at HMSHost full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits. Company has potential overtime and gives decent raises. Over all financially satisfying.

    Cons

    Poor management, disorganized, lack of communication. More stressful than it needs to be. Could have a much cleaner and organized atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and less like property. Need to pay more attention to request off and paying sick days. Not a good work environment, management was very hostile.
