Hills Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hill’s creates science-based diets for your pets. The company emphasizes quality and employs people with a dietary background to propel its product development. Hill’s pet foods use high-quality ingredients, and the company performs daily safety checks on finished products to add an extra layer of protection.
On March 2020, Lizzy wrote a review on CONSUMER AFFAIRS about Hills Pet Food:
"I beg you to read what I have to say because it may save a pet's life. Vets sell the Hills food for pets (also called the Science Diet). Research them- 35 lawsuits have been filed against them, and have been combined into one federal lawsuit. Pets are dying after eating their food. Cancer causing aflatoxins were found in their food. Organs are shutting down after starting the Hills diet. Several sources claim vets make a profit through the Hills by pushing their products. Do the research. All I know is that I held this angel of a dog, dying too young from cancer, in my arms on the way home from an oncologist in Redwood City who said he was too far gone for chemo. And when cancer started to take over his lungs and he struggled to breathe well, I cried my soul out as he was euthanized in my arms.
This dog has been seeing this vet since we got him. I saw what he was eating and immediately warned my Mom- she said "but the VET recommended it." Then, his kidneys started failing. Then a year later, cancer spread like wildfire before we could do chemo. Is the Hills responsible, and this vet? I'm not a scientist so I can't tell you- HOWEVER, WHY WOULD A VET SELL AND PUSH A PRODUCT THAT HAS BEEN SUED AND CLAIMED TO KILL PETS BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. There are so many brands out there that don't have people claiming this, why not choose one of those instead? Save your pet's life. Do not feed them the Hills. Do not trust a vet that actively stands by and possibly profits from a product thousands of people say have killed their pets. I miss my angel so much and I don't want anyone to go through what we did."
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) says"Company doesn't trust or value employees. Record your phone calls and video record your tours. Only care about your numbers. A particular employee in my office was absolutely toxic, drove several others out of the office. Management did not listen to concerns and that employee will be there for a long time. Hills Properties is not the norm and doesn't keep employees. I would recommend starting with a different property management company! You'll also be told that you'll work one weekend a month. In reality you'll work 2-3. New property manager quit after just a few weeks, if that doesn't tell ya something. Stay away! Cons: High turnover, micromanagement, work most weekends, awful coworker"
Maintenance Technician Level 2 (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend working at the specific location Brinley Place. All other sites felt like a cohesive team instead of the property manager vs maintenance. Micromanaged."
HILLS Property Management (Current Employee) says"Being apart of a family owned and operated company has enlightened my thoughts towards the corporate world.............................................................."
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"Everything seems great in the beginning but they don’t help you with anything even if it involves your safety. Will ask you why you’re taking a break while they stay in the shop and office and take hundreds of smoke breaks and talk trash about everyone."
Accounting (Current Employee) says"it's a job, I enjoy the work I do but mostly from prior experience. I don't feel like my knowledge is valued or recognized. Some departments and managers go out of their way to make sure you know it."
Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) says"I work for a property manager that’s absolutely terrible! He doesn’t practice what he preaches and sucks up to upper management all the time. I almost left because I hated working for a property manager that’s lazy and unorganized. I went to another property which I absolutely love and the property manager there is the reason why I even considered staying with HILLS! She’s AMAZING!!!"
Leasing Consultant (Current Employee) says"Hills is an amazing company to work at. I do think some rules and regulations need to be changed/inforced. There are a lot of favoritism in the company. Only certain people work the weekends, which is unfair, as well as only certain people get time off approved."
Accounting (Current Employee) says"The company has been making efforts to improve the culture which is effective at the properties. We have a good group of property associates who are friendly, attentive and concerned about their residents."
HILLS Property Management (Current Employee) says"Overall, Hills Properties is a good place to work. Pay and benefits are fair. I am proud to work for a company that provides and manages such quality homes for our residents.."
Renewal Coordinator/ Asst. Property Manager (Former Employee) says"Great Community with beautiful gardens. Fun resident activities and a large pool and work out room. Cons: Change with multiple managers and staff."
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) says"Very friendly atmosphere. They make you feel at home and take very good care of you. The benefits are good. Management is great and always willing to help out"
Instructor says"I have been working at Hills Cons: Programs are staffed at dangerously low aide to student ratios because of a high staff turnover rate. The turnover rate is due to the above-average challenge of the job and below average compensation rate. It has been insisted this is being worked on via upgrading to online fee tracking and collection (to facilitate a long overdue audit). But if change doesn't come soon enough, the understaffing issue will only get worse and they'll eventually have a serious lawsuit on their hands that will read "something something.. negligence and child endangerment.. multiple counts". In the meantime the excess funds go toward partnering with educational-based activity supplies. Sounds good, except said educational-based activity supplies don't really suit the $50/week demographic. Clients that are interested in this sort of programming are already paying more than twice as much at other programs with 3x the staff, talent and resources to implement that sort of programming. At minimum wage, you can't recruit or train talent to implement educational programming, craft and outdoor activities at a 25-1 ratio."
Current Employee - Hardware Engineer says"I have been working at Hills full-time for more than a year Cons: The company as all-in-in are still under construction, The products have lots of quality issues and problems, particularly those from other suppliers, which need to be addressed. This includes QA checking and discussion with the suppliers."
Current Employee - Production says"I have been working at Hills full-time Cons: The heat makes working production a bit difficult at times"
Food Server says"I have been working at Hills Cons: Horrible management. No relationships are built with any management. Managers don't have your back when issues arise."
says"I have been working at Hills for more than a year Cons: Stressful, long days, short of staff"
