Norton – July 10, 2013
I worked for HMSHost for over 3 years. I have been in the food and beverage industry for over 19 years. I have worked for MGM as a F&B Manager in Las Vegas. I worked for Hilton as a Bar Manager in Los Angeles. I came back to Anchorage Alaska and started working for HMSHost as an Assistant Store Manager and this is the worst company you could ever work for. They are very bad to their employees and they lead the Managers on by saying they will get a bonus and in the three years no bonuses!! No matter what you do or what goals you reach for them they have an excuse for you not to get your bonuses and they work you at least 15 to 19 hours a day in the summer and also had 27 strait days without a day off. Here in Anchorage there is so much prejudice from some phillipino Managers that have been there for 20 years you would think you live in the Phillipines. An example is Chilis has 95 percent phillipinos employees working there and Starbucks, and Quiznos. There has been plenty of other nationalities apply with way more experience and can speak English but they won't hire them. I brought it to the Corporations attention but nothing done about it. If your not phillipino or management be ready to be prejudice against. There is no proper management training for any of the managers or supervisors so if you don't know much by the time you leave you know less!!! The wages are so low for all positions and they make a killing by charging all customers high prices. If you plan to work for or even be a customer for HMSHost RUN, don't even walk into there establishments go to another restaurant!!!
