Hillarys Blinds Employee Review

Horrible place to work

Been with the company for many years. It was great to start of with staff were friendly and everyone joined in until the last 5 years and most of the old faces has gone and now they employed riff raff.it’s a very fast paced and you must meet your hourly targets . There’s a lot of favouritism to certain members of staff they let them get away with things. Also there’s a lot of cliques can turn nasty and bullying and management allow it to happen instead of solving it. If things go wrong with the blinds line leaders still send it out to customers to get the daily targets. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone

Pros

Weekends and Christmas off

Cons

Bullying. Favouritism. Judgemental people and cliques

Toxic culture

Not the best culture to be working in, some lovely people to work with some not so nice people to work with.Unrealistic KPI’s with little to no help from management

I wouldnt recommend.

I worked in the metal venetian dep't at Hillarys. The hours were fine but they were long days!The job itself is boring once you know what you're doing and they expect a lot of work out of you for the money you get! Also if they find you hate a certain task they will take you for a conplete mug and put you on that task at any given time. It got to the point where I kicked off with them.There is a lot of favouritism and a lot of family and friends there which doesn't help on the favouritism part. There is no room for progression unless you're a friend, family or favourite. There is overtime almost all the time but there is no work life balance at all. Basically Blinds are life. In the end I never ever did overtime because I couldn't bare to be there any longer than I had to be there.On the whole leaving there is probably one of the best things I've ever done.

Cons

Long days, Management are a joke, pay, repetitive, boring, no progression.

It’s a fun company but poor management

Management are very sly and it’s one of those companies of ‘who you know’ not ‘what you know’ if you want to progress. Contact centre are over worked and under paid and so so stressed with no reward. They care too much about dress up days than actually putting thoughts to the staff and helping them manage workload.

Pros

Hours of work (mon-fri)

Cons

Pay, management and no progression unless you know someone high up
