    Pros

    Great Benifits
    Easy Job
    Great Co workers
    Good Hours

    Cons

    Messy General Management
    Lies about hours
    Bad communication with management
    Unclear directions most of the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hiring general managers who will help solve issues and not keep the mess going! Also need to not be so secretive about the pay between employees and dont lie to new hires about the hours they will get and not follow through with it.

    Word to people wanting to work here beware of favoritism. I worked for a new specialty store inside Bush IAH through this company. Long story short hours went from full time to very part time within first 2 weeks of us being in business! Also employees were allowed to do certain things and still have their job. It was not fair to the HARDWORKING employees that were there. General Manager played favorites and she helped keep up most of the drama. SMH thats why I left other than that I had some great co workers and met some good people so my advice is get in and get out DO NOT TALK ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE WITH MANAGEMENT UNLESS YOU WANT ALL EMPLOYEES TO KNOW.

    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, promote within. Some managers are understanding

    Cons

    Work can be hectic with somedays not taking a break. This company do not support their employes if you have other priorities, such as school which is not good. Employee handbook should be viewed by management because they do not follow it, when it comes to associates benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engaged more with your employees instead of acting as if we don't exist to you. your associates are the face to your company, acknowledge us because without us generating sales and increasing cash flow- there wouldn't be a Hudson Group

    My experience has not been healthy at all, especially because of the Manager.

    I worked at Hudson Group

    Pros

    I found a little flexibility with scheduling work hours.

    Cons

    The company does not have a good team to work with nor does it have a good Manager. People are very unhappy there.

  9.  

    Fast-paced, engaging work environment; but company leadership is insensitive and unappreciative.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Store Manager
    Current Employee - Store Manager

    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you work in operations, the environment is never boring. Working in airport retail provides constant stimulation; you're always faced with new people and new situations. And yet it's nice being part of a constant fixture that provides a helpful and comforting service to the passengers who come and go.

    Cons

    Company leadership places a very low value on hiring middle/upper managers who have decent (and in some cases, even basic) people-management skills. The store managers and below who work under these guys are treated very poorly: long hours and constant feedback on what they're doing wrong, but with minimal support or appreciation. When smart, reasonable people are hired, they tend to leave quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few years ago, GM's and above supposedly underwent "intensive" emotional intelligence training, with no perceivable result. Maybe try it again, but with real commitment? Until this company places a real value on making its employees feel valued and supported, and giving them the tools, training, and resources to deliver on what's expected of them, the best of them (and Hudson's best hope for the future) will continue to leave.

    I worked at Hudson Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees and even customers would always make the work day a bit easier. Pay wasn't the worst but it also could've been better.

    Cons

    Upper management. As a outside hire for supervisor, several of our managers seemed to have it out for me just on the basis of someone that would kiss up to them didn't get promoted and I got the job instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings.

    I have been working at Hudson Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    had gratifying customer service memories. Great and respectable international customers all around.

    easy to do job if you are great with customer service.

    Cons

    no real growth advancement opportunities. no recognition at all from management if you're doing a great job.

    pay is BAD; Management and HR are very dishonest.

    You have to initiate into a union .. it is a thing they DO not tell you . benefits are given after 6 months..

    managers are NOT professional .. degrading employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not LIE to your employees; they will find out how wrong you did them. Illogical to have dissatisfied employees.

    make incentives in order to promote a higher degree of employee satisfaction

    hire managers that are reputable to where they actually LEAD a team.
