    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time

    Pros

    If you end up with a good group of workers as I did, you'll feel less weight on your shoulders from the start.

    Cons

    Hours are not completely given. I advice who ever applies for this job to state first hand how many hours they want to work for no later inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with associates bout tasks and/or job requirements.

    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time

    Pros

    Full time opportunity. Building with cafeteria and gym. Diverse environment.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Upper management misleading, lying, and unprofessional. High turnover and expect to be pushed out if no political connections.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement to the extreme. Turn over the management. There are reasons why employees are lost and leaving.

    Pros

    Some of the best benefits of my job is that you choose your schedule of evenings or mornings. Pay rate is good and the company provides travel expenses.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides working with my job is that management solid and things can be a bit unorganized at times.

    Advice to Management

    More Brain storming and creative skills should come to play.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome.
    Majority of the customers are great
    Work can be fun especially with the right people

    Cons

    Management SUCKS
    They approve days off and then still put you on the schedule for that day. I almost had to miss my graduation even though I told them 2 months in advance

    Advice to Management

    REPLACE the upper management. They fired me for a no call no show that did not happen, because the manager that fired me told me that I came to work that day. Management needs to be cleaned out, there are supervisors that can do a MUCH better job

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

    Pros

    Working with a very diverse team, getting to meet so many people traveling

    Cons

    4 am to whenever your job is done was never in anything I had ever signed. Most day you work 12 to 16 hours and then you are expected to be back in 4 hours for your 12 to 16 hour shift again. The regional managers are completely insane. When you are opening new stores you will get to see all upper management yell cuss and scream at everyone. Sometimes you will see them have a temper tantrum on the construction workers , then witness the whole construction team walk out. For $50,000 a year you can find much better jobs

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat people with respect, listening to you employees when there are problems and not ignoring them. Stop the yelling and backstabbing. Duffey will eventually take over Hudson group and start shutting things down

    Pros

    It's an easy job, it's in the airport. Decent benefits if you join the union.

    Cons

    Management treats you like you don't matter. Pay is too low. Extremely high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Employees will be the best they can be when you're good to them. You need to stop treating them so poorly. Maybe then you'll actually be able to keep employees around.

    Pros

    There is nothing redeemable with this company.

    Cons

    They treat all staff as numbers, not people. They have no clue of guest service. they are concerned with make a dollar and not the health or safety of their staff or guests.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to see people and not just staff numbers. CEO visits locations and does not greet any of the staff. Both hourly and salaried!

    Pros

    The people and fellow co-workers are helpful, understanding, and nice. My friend was able to help me get a job at Hudson, so your connections are definitely a useful tool if you want to join this company.

    Cons

    Management and communication on part of the employees can be improved. It is good, but it can be better. Staffing issues are a problem and there are work days in which the stores are under-staffed and employees do not show up. Communication and business cohesion can be improved, but it must come from both sides.

    Advice to Management

    I would say keep up the good work! The company is growing and becoming more important. It is definitely important to keep growing and hiring more employees who are qualified and competent enough to complete essential tasks.

    Also, be more upfront with the employees about their concerns, mostly in one-on-one dialogue. It is better to confront issues face-to-face instead of email or text message. Directness between employees and supervisor is definitely a priority.
