    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free Starbucks
    Free Meals
    Free Parking
    I really can't find any other nice things to say.

    Cons

    Management is the worst. Kitchen management refuses to train. NOT flexible with schedules. EXPENSIVE benefits. Chef lies and treats you like an object, not a person. They cheat you by not giving breaks on time or at all; and don't pay meal break penalties.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you want your customers treated. Pay managers a livable wage, based on experience.

    Pros

    If you could survive working here you can work anywhere
    Pays better than other places. Many other managers around you that can help you out.

    Cons

    You need to pay for insurance out of pocket
    Hours are horrible. Sometimes you work from 3am other times at 6pm. You schedule is never guaranteed it can always change. One day you could be in charge of one store, then the next day 2 stores and another they will move you to a different terminal. Getting time off is difficult. You are forced to work holidays because that is when we are the busiest.

    Advice to Management

    Always negotiate your pay.
