Former Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – November 4, 2018
I worked as the former Accounting Manager. My primary functions were to manage inventory. The company would not let me do any other financial functions in the accounting department. Hence, by doing inventory all the time, it began to pigeon hole my career. Unless you are exposed to other areas in accounting as a manager: month end close, account reconciliations, fixed assets, accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll, ad hoc analysis, then you will never evolve as an accounting manager. This is not a good place to help your future career in accounting management. You also do not need a CPA to manage inventory.
Get place to start a career in warehouse or laborer work.

Thr typical day at work was : start off with a meeting about the ins and outs of the day, what's the game plan and where everyone will work. I learned 10/12 areas that i could learn at my position. The management was easy going he wanted his employees to move up in the company. Everyone got along together they acted and responded together as a team. The hardest part of the job was the heat. The most enjoyable part is the people.
Free vision, life insurance, and paid time off benefits

Clean the area. Check inventory, enter orders. Checking price labels. Making keys for customers. Restocking and putting over-flow stock in bins with labels, showing what was in box. The hardest part was organizing product. The most enjoyable was helping customers and satisfying their needs. Also getting along with people which meant to listen to what they were saying. Then helping them to solve their problems. Management did help by setting up objectives in an orderly fashion to finish the job.
Set your own time and accomplish objectives.
Difficult to accomplish all objectives because of time constraints

Part time job with lots of driving. If you are part time like I was benfits are minimal while full timers get everything like full paid vehicles. Part timers are expected to travel just as much as full timers.

This is a great company to work for. The work/life balance is the best I have ever been apart of. I wish there were a better path to success but the current structure does not allow for it. They have been very flexible with my time and try to push extra raises when possible.
Field Service Representative (Current Employee) – Gloucester, VA – May 20, 2018
Hillman, as a company, is not bad. As a field service rep to Lowe's account stores I made okay money and the benefits were excellent, and scheduling is very flexible. However, the work is mind numbingly boring, consisting mostly of straightening displays and ordering product with occasional reset projects thrown in. Additionally, Lowe's is not what it used to be and has cut back staffing and training for their employees which makes the service rep's job much much harder, and can make your day to day work environment hit or miss depending on the store - and in the latter part of my tenure it was mostly miss.
Decent pay, good benefits, flexible hours and scheduling, pay for your gas going to work
Providing product support to a slowly failing company is stressful and frustrating.
Field Service Rep (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – April 12, 2018
Got to meet a lot of new people, co- workers were very knowledgable and very helpful. Learned a lot about their products and what to recommend. Had to make quick decisions and if i ever needed help my manager was just a call away to help.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Georgia – February 2, 2018
The company overall is great. The management seems to care and the work is not back breaking at all. If you need some supplemental income with not that much stress then I would recommend this company. It does not pay much so if you have a large family i wouldnt recommend it as the only source of income.
Stressful, drive up to 2000 miles weekly while making at least 30 stops.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – January 5, 2018
A lot of driving up to2000 miles weekly, a lot of monthly call cycles up to140. 3 weeks vacation, can’t take more than 1 at a time. Wouldn’t hold my job after on job back injury and 2 not my fault car accidents. You DO NOT get to come back after any short term disability payments after 12 years.

As a quick advancement from a order puller to a forklift operator, with already having a licence from previous jobs. A fast pace job great employee environment and understanding managers. There is no more room for advancement after being a forklift operator. Feel the need to expand in a company that is willing to move me up in a company rather than have me driving circles day in and day out.
