    Current Employee - Bookseller in Chicago, IL (US)

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

    Pros

    I get to work with books.

    Cons

    A shiny glass ceiling, almost zero potential for upward growth and a complete disregard for the integrity of the employees. The slow destruction of bookstores as transitioned into news stands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that happy booksellers sell more books. Stop overloading middle management: dissatisfaction and overworking trickles down.

    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.

    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
