HotSchedules is the industry's leading employee scheduling app because it’s the fastest and easiest way to manage your schedule and communicate with your team.
Team members love it because they can swap, pick-up or release shifts with one click. Work-life balance is easily managed with automatic shift pick ups when you want more hours, and time off requests for when you don’t. Calendar sync and notifications keep your Schedules and the roster automatically updated to your phone with any manager-approved changes.
Managers appreciate the 75% time savings when building schedules and one-click approvals for shift changes. The ability to monitor business performance with sales and labor snapshots from anywhere, keeps them out of the back office. And most importantly, staying connected with broadcast and one-to-one messaging makes for a happy and productive team culture.
NOTE: The HotSchedules application REQUIRES a valid HotSchedules user account through your employer.

Ratings and Reviews
Could be some improvements made
It shouldn’t fall on the employee to pay for an app an employer requires in order for that employee to know when they work next. Plain and simple. Should not need to go further into explaining on that.
In terms of function, the app works well for the most part. With it being a paid app, I would expect it to run a little, I dunno, faster? The lag can get annoying.
Also, if anything- the sync to calendar option needs adjusted. If an employer reuploads a schedule due to changes, the calendar app does not rewrite the schedule that was made originally. Meaning if a manager uploads and edits the schedule 7 times, my phone receives seven consecutive notifications that I have to individually swipe away just for a new one to instantly appear. For my schedule next week, I have 12. Meaning I have to go in and delete the other 11 if I want to avoid my phone(and myself) freaking out when they start rolling in.
Just minor things, the calendar thing though has not been fixed and has been going on since downloading this app around two years ago.
Pretty good but I’d have some improvements
I have it for work, pretty good. I thought it was a bit unfair to have the worker pay for something the employee is forcing them to get to know their schedules but the price wasn’t that bad so no substantial complaints. The set up is really easy although I know some of my coworkers are really confused by the availability and didn’t mess with it because they didn’t know how it worked. I had figured it out but I think it should just be set up nicer. And I think it would be really great if we had a way to categorize/filter our inbox. A lot of my coworkers spam there asking for shifts to be picked up, I want to categorize the important notifications managers messages and from that of my coworkers. Overall, like the set up, never glitches, and is reliable.
I don’t understand if it’s just me or why this app is rated so highly... I’ve used it for about 3 years now because I have too and it’s been terrible. I can probably count the number of times it has loaded properly on one hand. It is a daily occurrence when I initially open the app that it does one of two things - indefinitely loads until an error message pops up (The operation can not be completed), or it loads and is literally completely blank, and trying to check to any other link/tab results in another error message. This continues to persist several times after closing and reopening the app, often it will result in signing me out completely. I currently use an iPhone X, although I’ve had these issues across other phones, keep the app updated, and 90% of the time I am connected to WiFi with any of my other apps working fine as far as the connection goes. I’m able to connect through the actual webpage easily enough but that’s not the point - I paid for the convenience of this app and it hardly works. I’m writing this review now because these issues have persisted through the last two days without even pulling up my schedule once setting me over the edge with my patience.
