Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) says

"I worked for this company for a short while in the HR headquarters in El Segundo CA as a front desk clerk. My perception of this company is that HMS host is very unorganized. The HR Administrators have a lack of leadership due to the HR director. The HR Director is petty and fake nice. I have heard the HR Director make uncomfortable comments; I've seen her roll her eyes at employees; I have felt that she plays favorites; very emotional, not professional. I wouldn't work for this company under her for a million dollars. I have seen HR personnel quit because the culture of the office is horrible! RUN!noneoverworked, stressful, petty, unorganized, no real leadership"
