Using hotschedules really helps restaurant employees easily access their schedules.

Pros

As a server you can easily pick up an available shift that someone else can't work, and also release/post a shift that you cannot work in order for someone else to grab it.

Cons

Sometimes it is difficult knowing where to go in order to find out certain information, such as if somone sends out a message for all employees to see, but for some reason I won't be able to locate where to see the message.

What I enjoy about hot schedules is two fold. One as a training manager I can easily set this up with the schoox LMS. So any new employee added to hot schedules automatically gets assigned their courses within schoox. This makes it easier for restaurant managers to train their staff without any support from training furthermore, it allows them to personally control their schedules without needing to worry about how training/restaurant will communicate with one another.

Outside of the learning component, hot schedules are easy to use and it offers a color coded scheduler designed to easily help you manager your daily or weekly schedules.

Pros

ease to use
almost functions like an HRMS

Cons

has a steep learning curve

HotSchedules will change the culture of your restaurant, it really is one of the best software programs I've ever used. Employees can make requests to work or take off, release, swap, or pick up shifts, and send messages. The app is very easy to use and for anyone who doesn't have a smartphone the website is great or a manager can quickly print anyone's schedule. Everything is super customizable for manager's writing the schedule and for employees. Invest in this program, it's great.

I enjoy using HotSchedules, it just constantly lags and takes its time (I'm assuming because we have so many employees), but overall it's helpful in communicating with staff.

Pros

Updates info quickly
Notifies you of activity while you were away
All reports you can run

Cons

It's slow and lags
Cannot copy a schedule from one week to the next
Cannot attach a file to messages

Advice to Others

Remove employees immediately after terminated to avoid delays in overall program

Hotschedules in Miami Beach!

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

We implemented hot schedules about 1 year ago into our restaurant group. We have 3 outlets in Miami Beach and really needed a scheduling solution. Hot schedules is great, as it syncs with multiple operating systems and is very user-friendly for both management and staff.

Pros

My favorite feature is the vacation request and availability block option. We have a lot of students who work for us whose schedule we need to work around. This option makes scheduling around these constraints easy. Their platform is basic which leads to functionality and usefulness.

Cons

The only con is that they have not yet built out an HR system. Synching hot schedules with these platforms can be annoying, I hope they develop solutions for this soon!

Advice to Others

I would advise to strongly consider HS. My only advice would be to see if it could sync with your other current platforms so you can get maximum usability!

I have used this product as both an employer and employee. I work in the food service industry and I can't tell you how time-consuming scheduling can be. Hotschedules allows my employees to request time off, swap shifts, release shifts, and receive mandatory messages all online or from their phones. This saves everyone time and cuts out the possibility of requests being forgotten.

Pros

As an employee, it's great to have my schedule sent to me weekly on my phone. If I am out of town, I don't need to
Make any extra stops or phone calls to find out when I am working next. I can also request time off online months in advance and my employer can approve it- making reservations and guaranteed time off more convenient.

Cons

to download the app for your phone it costs a small sum of money and some people don't like that. However, this really isn't an issue because you can still access the schedule from anywhere online-so it really isn't a con at all.

HotSchedules Review

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

I think HotSchedules is great. In high school, I worked for an independent, family owned restaurant where scheduling was a complete nightmare. We had one physical copy that was frequently not posted until the DAY before the period started, making frustrating for employees to not only show up for their allotted shifts but anticipate scheduled time off and conflicts. This made the work environment extremely difficult and this was reflected in our service and customer satisfaction. Having HotSchedules at the restaurant in which I work now is a complete game-changer. I can see when I need to work, who I work with, and who needs shifts picked up AT LEAST a week in advance, and I can make the most out of my work experience. It is amazing that I don't have to check a physical schedule once -- I just log in from wherever I am!

Pros

I love the ability for Shift Releases and Pick Ups to happen with no hassle; the manager sees when two employees have agreed to switch and then can approve it. Both servers are then notified via text if they so choose and on the software website itself.

Advice to Others

USE IT!

I have been using Hotschedules at my place of work for almost 2 years now. It has helped organize myself and the staff very nicely. Everyone enjoys it especially the staff since that is their major form of communication and with a staff of over 50, it certainly helps!

Pros

easy template, posting is super easy now with the new system.

Cons

Placing shifts as 'house shifts' at the bottom is a little confusing. It goes to the left so you're never sure which day it is meant for. They should just line up under the days of the week.

We have been slowly implementing Hotschedules to our staff over the past two weeks. In learning the back end ( as managers), posting our first schedule(S), and overall use , we have not had many problems. We are really excited about the management logbook and have not even had the chance to delve into the features yet but in quick snippet videos, it seems to have everything we need to stay in close communication with each other and "organized" which is essential. We are also very excited to dive into the analytics that are offered in costs, forecasts, etc.

Pros

Easy to use APP on iPhone and Android!
Multiple back end features
Managers Logbook!
Great REPORTING capabilities!

Cons

Setting up the templates per schedule took a little more time that I would have liked, however the ease of use after the templates were made to copy and paste schedules is pretty great.
A bit pricier than we would have liked to have spent, however I do believe in the long run we will be saving money overall.

My company (national restaurant chain) switched from an old homemade Excel schedule system to HotSchedules. What a difference it made! We were able to adjust schedules on the fly - which is a huge time saver in the restaurant industry. No more signing off on approvals since a manager could instantly approve changes after reviewing overtime hours. It also has built in analytics to calculate labor costs and efficiently determine where to spend labor dollars.

Pros

Ease of use, web and mobile app interfaces, updated frequently

Cons

Not enough customization on layouts

Advice to Others

I would highly recommend this product for restaurant and hospitality companies.

For the sake of accessibility in making schedules and sending them out it is pretty good.

Pros

The fact that it will send schedules and changes directly to your email

Cons

It does not send messages created in the mail center to your linked email box. You have to sign in to the program to read anything sent within the message center when it could just easily be displayed in your linked email account.

I currently work for a resturants and hot schedules just simplifies all of the old hassles of paper scheduling and switching shifts. One has access to contact information of its employees, and informs you have anyone who is willing to make a swap of a shift. It simply eliminates the hassle of paper scheduling.

Likes Best

The ability for employees to swap shifts easily. The mobile app makes it accessible for employees.

Likes Least

Any "time off" hours such as vacation get calculated into actual hours worked so overtime starts calculating before it should. So when you run reports for payroll and the person doing payroll does not realize this, you will end up paying overtime to employees who have not worked a 40 hour week. According to customer service, there is no way to fix this. Reports are not intuitive.

Recommendations

Find a system that has some basic knowledge of fundamental timekeeping and payroll.

Expensive. They quietly lock you into a contract to pay them monthly fees, even after you learn that their software is terrible and does not help your staff scheduling duties. The installation took many days, and was filled with one problem after another. The product is overly complicated and confusing. THEY MAKE YOUR EMPLOYEES PAY FOR THE MOBILE APP!!!!! Yes, you read that right, your employees will have to pay to get the app. Another con is that you actually have to print up a page with the invite for each employee to sign up for the schedule app.

There are many other options available on the web and for tablets.

Made me more efficient at ensuring that I ran accurate reports for the DM'S

Pros

I have worked in the restaurant industry and this allows for easy scheduling and payroll management for my employees and it's simple to use. Furthermore if you are using e-learning this software teams up well with Schoox *LMS* in order to provide courses for my staff. They can easily take their courses the day they start working because the system auto enrolls them into their courses while allowing them to know their shift schedule.

Cons

There's a bit of a learning curve associated with hot schedules because of the different options but it's great regardless.

The largest benefit was time management. I have a lot more time to do other things that improve our guest's experience, which is the bottom line of my job.

Pros

The communication side of it is great. I have less meetings now that I can send out mass messages. The scheduler itself is top notch. I can move shifts around quickly using the quick keys and copying schedules is a snap. Having the freedom to do my schedule anywhere and being able to approve or deny schedule changes from my phone makes those decisions more informed. We use it to document all incidents good and bad on employees, so when an evaluation comes around you have all that information at your fingertips. It makes a great reservation scheduler. The roster report is the first thing I print out in the mornings to make sure everyone is here and where they are supposed to be and if they are not I have all the phone numbers on that sheet. The fact that it gives you the number of hours for everyone helps with creating budgets for the week.

Cons

My biggest complaint is that part of the expense for the is put on the employee. I know it's very little but some employees don't have a bank account or credit card and have trouble making the purchase. It seems to me that the revenue generated by that could be built into the cost of the software on the employer side.

I have been using Hot Schedules for several years now, and I have to say it always pleases! In the service industry, the word "easy" is not usually thrown around. As a FOH manager, and a former FOH staff member Hot Schedules has always been super easy to use and super helpful! Also, implementing it into the restaurant was quick, easy, and the most affordable. The Hot Schedules team is always around to provide great customer service as well! If you are in the market for a new scheduling, labor tracking, (among many other things) service. I would for sure go with Hot Schedules!

Hotschedules has made scheduling and forecasting MUCH easier. We are just a small business and the service they provide for the value is outstanding. Scheduling takes hours less than it used to and being able to look at the sales, labor, and other projection really helps us. Great service!

Great reporting and review. Awesome scheduling at ability to forecast sales and labor.

I was a little hesitant steering away from y old ways of scheduling but the support and functionality made it easy. Completely switched over staff of 30+ in 2 weeks. Thanks HS!

I love hotschedules. It has really helped me get my business running more fluid, not just for myself but for our staff. Especially when it comes to making a schedule and the ease of use for the staff. I wish Hotschedules had a way for us to incorporate breaks though. That would be very helpful.

Pros

What I like most is the scheduling. I can make a template of a schedule used commonly or start from scratch.

Cons

What I like least is probably more on my part, and that is that I find it to be a lot going on and I am not exactly technologically savvy. But customer service has always been great at helping me answer any questions that I have.

Advice to Others

I wish that when making the schedule we had the ability to incorporate breaks without having to schedule staff for separate shifts. It seems to confuse them.

My managers are thrilled that they no longer have to make schedules in a spreadsheet. Switching shifts and distributing schedules is a breeze. Requesting time off is also much easier for employees. I'm thrilled they can now easily see how much they are spending on labor.
