    I have been working at Hillyard full-time


    Hillyard sales reps are equipped with several unique selling advantages. These advantages mostly center around computer technology and several key Hillyard products. They're designed to help the rep avoid selling just on price and lets him/her bring more to the table than other jan/san distributors (especially the smaller ones). Commissions are fair and managers treat you like a person. "What do I do for a living? I help companies keep their buildings hygienic and presentable and we place an emphasis on floor coatings."


    Many companies are trying to get into the industry, which is driving prices (margins) down and making it harder to make money. There's not much training before sending you out in the field. Mostly a sales industry, so most of the jobs at Hillyard branches are sales -- very little opportunity to move into other types of roles. "What do I do for a living? I... sell toilet paper."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest a little more time on training new employees. Help branch managers grow their leadership skills which will in turn help them better develop their branch employees, which is healthy for the company.
