Benefits are good. They paid us for covid leave. Very flexible. 6 months in and you get 3 weeks vacation. Starting pay is 18$ an hour. Laid back, but can get busy. Very rare to work weekends
Benefits, vacation, flexibility
Management is a little political
I did mostly stocking and shipping work...i have 3 1/2. Years fork lift experience. At Hills Pet Nutrition we had a dog and cat food convenient store just across work campus next to factory where I did most of my work and had a little cashier experience at the company in retail...very social,polite and do hard work when required in the field
This company help me learn workplace culture daily. The coworker base really cares about how everyone is treated and trained. The hardest part of the job was making the choice leave. I had hoped to pass the learning from this company on to the next chapter in my lives journey.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

I absolutely loved this job. I was so upset when the temp job ended because I really enjoyed this job. It was fun, easy, and quick paced made your day go by faster! I loved my manager he was the best and he always helped me when I needed the help.
I knew from a month in that I was not a valuable employee, simply because I was only a 'temp' employee & not a full-fledged Hill's employee. My trainer was more concerned about training the new group in Lawrence than me. I was expendable & was thrown under the bus countless times, despite our group size going from six to two. If Hill's became the last company to work for, I'd rather live on the street and starve.
bad management there hard to move up in the company and grow here and to much favortizm here and hard to move here and they have there picks for advancement no matter how hard to work here.
Hard to move up no matter how hard you work for them
First of all you are only capped a 45 hours and the manager micro manages his employees .benefit are good bu a little pricey and also the employees love to run and tell management what other employees are doing instead worrying about themselves toxic work environment
Low pay, poor management
Worked through a temp agency. Was told that had a good chance of getting on to work for company full time permanent. Went through phone interview with a third party company and if they liked what they heard, then you would have face to face interview. Was denied job. Will tell you that they found someone with more experience, which in the face to face interview, the HR tells you that your resume looks impressive. Most of the employees were nice, but there were higher ups that wouldn't acknowledge your presence, unless they needed you to help them out. Some treated you differently and some treated you like you were one of them.From application process to the end takes forever. Be prepared to wait over a month to find out anything. The company doesn't really care about if they hire the temps even though they already know your work ethics.
Some of the employees are nice.
Makes promises they don't intend to keep.
Hill’s can be a wonderful place to work and make a career. But it depends on whether you are salaried / hourly and management / office vs. hourly / lower tier employee. Working in the office / professional areas at the HQ, you will be treated as a valued employee. Working as warehouse or Technician positions, you will be treated as someone to be micromanaged and untrustworthy. There is little to no advancement opportunities in the tech positions, unless you are a management favorite in these departments. If you can keep your head down and stay away from the tattletales and gossips, you will do just fine.
Benefits, salary, some Work/life balance
Bad managers, strict attendance, favoritism
