Wendy's crew member (Former Employee) – Maple, ON – 1 February 2019
I worked at this job to get me through college and it was a horrible experience. The people that run this place do not have proper management skills and are very unprofessional. I was treated like a slave and because I was young and naive I was quickly taken advantage of with scheduling and job duties. Overall this job taught me to be brave in the workforce and learn my rights as an employee. If you really need money and are just trying to get by with school I would not stay longer than 6 months because the environment will have you feeling super demotivated and stressed.
no free lunches, they make you pay half or usually if employees like you they will give you free food
LONG hours, and they don't care if you are sick they tell you to work...
Customer Sales Representative(Part Time) (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 23 December 2018
Nothing interesting to tell about this place. just work what you are told and get paid. You are told to do a lot of work and get paid just a basic salary. work here only if you are in desperate need of money.
5+ years employed with this dreadful company to get me through school
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Tilbury, ON – 5 November 2018
Thankfully the crew members are welcoming people, but other than that, I would not suggest you work here. Management lacks major education, understanding, and skills (including reading, writing, and spelling!). If you make one mistake they will cut your hours (as punishment) to one short shift per week- despite never having enough staff to fill a whole shift to begin with. You will be expected to do the jobs of 3 people with no incentive- nor appreciation. So expect to get over worked and under paid (while simultaneously being yelled at). Overall this is a very negative environment and if you've never had a job before DO NOT think that the way they run this building is how every employment is going to be... I promise there is better out there! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
Free lunch under $10 (half an hour unpaid break only)

Utility Worker (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 27 October 2018
The general manager in Barrie location is worst example of management I've ever experienced. He sleeps with employees and had the law showing up at place of employment due to disgruntled spouses. He has no people skills and cannot deal with conflict. He runs and hides if there is any conflict. He allows certain managers to be ignorant to customers and staff and does nothing. Many times employees are outside smoking/vaping while no one at counter while customers wait. Treat employees badly unless in certain management clique. Worst run place to work for. Written up constantly for nonsense while others get away with everything. Embarrassing and head management does nothing.
Porter (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 15 October 2018
The management is definitely a huge issue. Bullying by management at the Barrie Onroute HMS host. Every brand at the Barrie location suffers at hands of management. The most toxic enviroment Ive ever work or been involved in. Head management does nothing to investigate. No gloves are used in food prep ( even head boss doesn't use gloves) cross contamination galore in there. The ONLY time the place is cleaned is when big boss is coming. If they ever did an a proper investigation , the place would be shut down.
ON N4S 7W8 - Team Member (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 6 October 2018
The management are some of the funniest and most level headed people you can work with, but because of where this place is situated, they struggle to find employees. Many factories nearby taking people in with better wages and benefits, no teens really wanna drive out to the highway just for a minimum wage job, and the plaza across the highway takes employees coming from Woodstock.
Snack Bar Attendant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 October 2018
HMS Host, when I first started people warned me of the work environment there. Managers were inconsiderate of others, sometimes we wouldn't get a break after we have worked for 6-7 hours, and sometimes we wouldn't get a break at all. Pay was always wrong. For my last pay, I worked for 25 hours that week and I only got paid for 18. Had to complain to get the right pay.
Co-Workers were really nice, understanding. They trained me well. Made sure I was up to date on all the policies, etc.
Food and Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton International Airport – 19 September 2018
Good people and loved working with all of them. It was fun and always meeting new people which was the plus whereas you pick-up lots of golden nuggets that helps you to become a better person everyday.
Bartender and Server (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 14 August 2018
HMS Host treats their employees like they are all expendable . They cannot treat employees with dignity and respect . The airport money is great . But when you need support there is rarely help . They often establish the most useless policies just to add pressure to your already stressful job . Poor organization , management picks favorites and never has your back when customers get nasty . No accountability for their actions . Will always blame the employee for their screw ups . DO NOT WORK FOR THEM ! You will regret it .
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Port Hope, ON – 11 August 2018
It was a fun experience to learn to use all these different ways to clean places, and how to use all the cleaning tools, and I would love to work at an on route again and hope for the same great experience
