    I have been working at Hill Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair and equal opportunities for every employee, management always has an open door policy, staff is treated like family, and management is open to new and innovative ideas. It is truly a pleasure to wake up and come to work knowing you are a valued member of the team and appreciated daily. Upper management is always respectful, approachable and fair; work/home life balance is perfect and it is an honor to work for this wonderful company!

    Cons

    Location within the city but that is nothing that can be changed

    Advice to Management

    I think the management is great just as is and the company is perfect

    Pros

    there is nothing good here

    Cons

    old building is dirty, inches of dust caked on air vents
    insects in office area
    equipment is way outdated, still using green bar printers that were obsolete about 20 years ago.
    lazy, no one wants to train you
    if you won't do the work exactly in the order they do, they won't keep you.
    will lie to you about why you aren't staying
    too many unnecessary procedures that are inefficient
    won't give you a chance if your sales are too low right away

    Advice to Management

    be honest with the people you are hiring
    update your procedures and equipment, this is the 21st century, not 1975.

    Pros

    Great opportunity if you have the right skills and knowledge. You have a lot of freedom in handling your business. You can make a lot of new friends and gain insights in to many businesses.

    Cons

    This company has some strange ways about it. The senior management lives in it's own world. They are very secretive, even about things that you as a salesperson should know. They claim to be receptive to new ideas but really are only if they create them.

    Advice to Management

    You need to think outside the box. You should bring in a heavy hitting marketing professional to get you into this century. If you do, remember that they are there to help you see the light.

    Pros

    Phenomenal product line. Decent money. Good people. A good opportunity for a disciplined and driven sales representative or sales manager.

    Cons

    Sales management lacks the organization to adequately support sales managers and/or reps in a contemporary sales environment. I got the feeling that they were unwilling to modernize their sales management, training, or systems to be the competitors they could be.

    Advice to Management

    This company has a rich history and it would be a tremendous shame if they do not adapt to the contemporary sales environment and make themselves the competitors they could be.

    Pros

    Good product line. Had a good choice of great chemical that were fairly priced. Shipped orders out in a timely manner.

    Cons

    Just plain horrible training program with zero help from the start. They expect you to sell their quota amount every month & increase it beyond expectation.
    Owners are cheap and charge you for everything. They love you for 6 weeks, but if you aren't producing after that they totaling turn on you.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more loyal to your sales people and you may keep them. Need to hire someone other than family that doesn't micro manage their sales force. Too worried about the first $ they ever made.

    I worked at Hill Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Currently..... Not too many except enjoying working with my customers

    Cons

    Contract states that your accounts are PROTRCTED in Your Territory...... Wrong !
    This company is all about $$$$ , Reps are a dime a dozen here.Have a contract which is suppose to protect ALL ACTIVE ACCOUNTS UNTIL......
    As soon as 1 snake in the grass comes along and STEALS AN ACTIVE ACCOUNT..... This company ALLOWS IT , which also breaches that contract which they enforce but only when it benefits themselves .

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for what is right !

    Pros

    As long as I met my goals, they let me manage my own territory and run it like my own business.
    They always paid commissions accurately and on time.
    Family business with a real family feel.
    They shipped the products quickly and customers were well satisfied.

    Cons

    The home office seemed more responsive to my needs than my direct manager

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the managers are fully engaged with the Reps!
