Machinery Finishing Product (Former Employee) – West Sacramento, CA – May 15, 2017
While working at Hunter Douglas, I felt that everyone was very helpful and friendly. I worked in the finishing product side. The only thing about working there is that your hands will get really dried up.

The management is so pathetic you can work your butt off every day don't expect to get a review or a raise there Half the supervisors that work there unfortunately are alcoholics and are very uneducated would not recommend this job to anyone also you pay for benefits but when you need them they are very poor if there's anything else in Cumberland definitely do that before this job this is a very very poor job lot of labor nothing really good about it all also don't expect the other employees to help you out and believe me it's everyone for themselves there no one is really willing to help you out please do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY
Credit Supervisor (Current Employee) – W Sacramento, CA – April 5, 2016
I started Hunter Douglas as a customer service rep, I entered new orders and helped customers with questions re: installation of window coverings, product information and even some psychology here and there. I attended premiers which showcased new products to our dealers. I learned patience, and a great work ethic. When I moved into collections, I worked in not just collecting but helping dealers who might have gotten into a tough spot and needed a little help. My goal was not to send to immediate collection, but to help dealers to continue doing business so they grow, which most of the time paid off in the long run. Hardest part of the job is change and the most enjoyable is knowing that you made a dealer happy just by listening, understanding a situation they may be in financially and helping them succeed.
Assembler and Inspector (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – August 26, 2015
Assemble or inspect shades all day. You learn how to work proficiently in a fast paced environment. The management is great. They are understanding, fair, and eager to help. The co-workers are all so different. It has been fun working alongside them. They are friendly and are ready to accept you right away. You stand on your feet all day. and you do the same thing all day. With overtime you have to be at work as early as 3:50 or 4:50 A.M. It was nice to be able to go home every day at 2:20 and to be able to get really good at your specific position.
Good management, good co-workers
Work starts very early with overtime, On your feet all day
Blind assembler (Former Employee) – sacramento ca – July 28, 2015
working in my assign station meeting my production numbers. I learned how to multitask and learn how to meet my daily goals. hardest part of the job was keeping up with production in a fast paced environment. Most enjoyable part was working with coworkers that were focus and professional
To start my day i would have to log in to my computer and start to scan the parts that can off the production line.Then i lay all parts to together and start assembling.I learned how to use electrical tools and read measurements.The hard part was standing in one spot and being pregnant with twins at the time.
Finisher/Builder (Former Employee) – Cumberland, MD – October 21, 2013
I learned that when you can focus on your job that your work day can just breeze by and it is over before you know it. This company gets new employees almost every week so it was frustrating having to aid new employees constantly. I found that the management team was helpful with some situations, but they were not always available. My co workers were wonderful for the most part. We all knew our jobs and what was expected. My hardest part of the job was being subjected to harassment and not having management help resolve the issue.
Accounts Receivable Supervisor (Former Employee) – Poway, CA – May 28, 2013
I enjoyed working here for over 20 years. Made many friends. Was able to grow in the company, very encouraging. I learned about credit & collections and became very good at my job. The hardest part of the job was having to leave. I enjoyed the daily tasks of cash posting, account reconciliations, and the challenges of finding solutions to satisfy the customer to both our satisfaction.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Cumberland, MD – May 8, 2013
There is constant redundant work most of the time. They have good benefits such as plt, 401, medical, dental, etc. Most of the coworkers are lazy while others work harder. Overall not the greatest place to work.
Decent pay for the surrounding area
Short breaks, some poor management, lousy coworkers, mandatory weekends
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Cumberland – May 21, 2012
I enjoyed working at Hunter Douglas because they are pretty much a 9 to 5 weekends off Company with great benefits and a great team atmosphere to work in my co workers were great to work with. A typical day at work was pretty much sitting behind a desk waiting for the phone orders to come in. We were able to talk to each other while we waited. I learned about Hunter Douglas window coverings and how they were made in the plant. I learned how to enter the orders into the processing system. Management is very team oriented at Hunter Douglas and they know exactly what type of people to look for to become part of the team. I learned there is not a problem there is a challenge everything can be fixed. My co workers were very welcoming when i was hired they showed me the ropes and we became friends. The hardest part of the job....There really wasn't a hard part of the job we were given everything we needed to assists us with processing the orders into the system with ease. I enjoyed everything about this job and had I not went back to school to further my career in the medical field I would still be working there to this day. I loved it and I recommend this place to anyone looking for work it is a great place to work.
