Associate (Former Employee), Beckley, WV – March 30, 2014
Pros: free lunch up to $9.00 tax free, flexibly schedules, friendly manager, and great pay for fast food
Cons: not a lot of room for advancement and hard work tends to get overlooked.
Through my experience, during the summer every day was busier than the last. Most of my co-workers didn't like it, however I found it challenging and better than the days when it was slow. During these – more... times the management was helpful and through all this I learned to look on the bright side of things and try to be the best at everything you are told to do. Oddly enough, to me the hardest and most enjoyable part of working at this company was when it was busy. It would make the day go by fast and i could really apply my skills i learned throughout the time leading up to the busy season. – less

accounting clerk iii (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – August 25, 2015
At HMS Host I over seen a large quantity of invoices daily.My responsibility involved reporting to the management and tracking the product that was spended and keeping the cost down. If a problem arises I would analyze the error, contacting the management and vendor to resolve the discrepancies. Using my expertise the problem would be corrected and handle accordingly.
Supervisor (Current Employee), Charlotte – August 16, 2015
fast pace environment, always a curve ball coming during your shift. You can never go as the plan, just plan as you go. Very busy, everyday. However, it is a great environment to work at. I get to see new people everyday and it is fun to see different people. Sometimes the unexpected things happen and we all just have to deal with it.
The job could be tough at times. Our particular restaurant seemed to go through cashiers every week, not because of the tough job, but because of the culture. Everyone was cool enough to get along with, – more... but there was a bit of a mean girl attitude from some of the higher seniority cashiers that management didn't really do anything about, and it drove away potentially good cashiers. Not too many places at this job level pay as well and you get raises every so often, holiday pay, seniority really matters here as far as what days you get off and who gets open jobs. I took orders and did expo, didn't really enjoy it but the pay was decent. I would have hung in there but the clique-i-ness was starting to get to me – less
Retail Supervisor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 20, 2015
Pros: Free Lunches
Cons: horrible management. No communication.
I would work in the bookstore. I supervised four stores. I work on almost of the airports concourses. The hardest part of the job as a supervisor was to provide a break to an associate and having to be the only one who could give a refund on another concourse and being unable to leave the store I was giving a break in.
Bathroom cleaner (Former Employee), ruby,new york – July 10, 2015
Pros: they mobney is good there you get raised there every year.
Cons: bad boss need to replace her
I work at hmshost in Ruby New York. it sucks and they need a better boss. they need help with that job. In my opinion is they need a better boss to get rid of lisha wagar and replace her. then that place would be better and they wouldn't keep having people quitting left and right.
server (Former Employee), las vegas – June 19, 2015
Pros: pay rate and tips
Cons: everything else
As a former employee i can say how glad i am to be gone. The working conditions are deplorable. During the summer the A/C in nearly every unit doesnt work so hope you enjoy sweating through your clothes. – more... Also be prepared to pay out of pocket for your lunch everyday as the meal allowance doesnt cover the rediclous prices for most food items, and in alot of units you can't even use your meal allowance so you have to pay out right. If you want bottles of water or Gatorade be prepared to pay for those too. The managers are TERRIBLE. They do not care what happens to you period. you are a number not a human. Do not expect room to advance or grow this is not a company that promotes from within. Do yourself a favor before you apply read the restaurant reviews for their units on facebook or yelp. And after you read the hundreds of bad reviews then you can deside if they are a company you want to be a part of. – less
Snack Bar Attendant (Former Employee), Concord, NC – June 9, 2015
I love being in an environment where I felt wanted also able to build relationships with customers and staff. A typical day would be prepping, cleaning and cooking food and operating the cash register. – more... I've learned patience working with HMSHost because they have lots of customers that are very opinionated. The hardest part of the job was trying to satisfy everyone but once you get the hang of things it comes natural. – less
