Pros

I also enjoy the creation of House Shifts to help meet projected labor needed. There are some cool reporting functions and the Broadcast feature is great for company-wide announcements.
Its super helpful with mapping weekly schedules and for staff communication. Ease of use could be improved and the app should be free.
Great idea and nice to have for many industries with hourly employees, but I wouldn't view this as a solid solution for large organizations quite yet.

Pros

Cons

We are not using HotSchedules and the overall experience has been horrible.
The messages are easy to missed. Since HotSchedules can put out so many notifications - messages get lost in the jumble.
Horrible experience, cannot get customer service to assist us in restarting service that has been interupted or correct verification processes. Delaying our hiring process and reopening of business.
