Senior R&D Engineer (Current Employee) – Commerce, MI – August 4, 2015
Engineering group is not used as it should be. New management has shown promise - and made an immediate impact. The groups working with one another and trust factor is lacking, leaving much to be desired.
Working at HoMedics was good. Good benefits and company perks. I got along with almost everyone that worked there, and I have been there for nearly 10 years. I worked in two environments, warehouse (physical labor, on feet all day) and office (cubicle,input orders into computer, clerical work). The only negative thing I can say about the company that everyone complained about the company having too many "Chiefs" and not enough "Indians".
Consumer Relations Representative (Current Employee) – Commerce Township, MI – January 14, 2014
Being a Consumer Relations Representative with Homedics is exciting because there are many companies we represent, everyday I learn something new! I get to test new products and learn how they work. It sheds a new light on things for me. When I shop I ask more informed questions and I know what to look for, when I am shopping for quality.
My boss is very entertaining and he make sure there's never a dull moment.
Quality Manager (Former Employee) – Commerce Township, MI – December 6, 2013
My team worked well together, and were very productive and supportive when last minute testing was requested. I enjoyed managing the third party product testing, since I was able to interact with many good customers and test labs. The hardest part of the job was the heavy workload. Since the company has been down-sizing for years, many employees have the daily workload of 2 or 3 people and have to put in 10-12 hours plus 7 days a week. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with other departments on projects because the people were so nice to work with.
Excellent perks such as, onsite cafe, flexible hours
management typecasting, some unreasonable work hour requests
Productive & rewarding work place. Great starting company

Work started with started with maintaining and pull any current customer POS data for review. From there we would work on any upcoming customer meeting presentations including compiling competitive marketing data, product features and industry trends ( NPD data).

customer account setup and customer item setup was a daily routine. setting up items in each customer system so they can be received when items are shipped.
reviewed and setup customer trade shows and employee training incentives. maintained and managed all shipments to and from shows along with participating in training seminars for customer employees.
Working at HoMedics i learned how to pull and compile customer POS, created customer presentations, manage projects, setup customers internally both as a company and item setup. Manage trade shows and train customer employees on products. learned how to manage customer accounts directly, setup meetings with buyers.
Management was very well designed. Enough to give employees direction without hindering growth potential by allowing employees to take initiative.
Co-workers were very friendly and highly driven.
Hardest part of the job was maintaining all the customer item setup processes as the products we sold were being changed on the front half after we already setup the items in the customers information system
The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to do work at your own pacemore... and priority. As long as each project was done within the allotted time frame you could go about mulitple projects at once.less
Great employees and ability to lead
somethings lack of organizational drive for employees
Extremely poor management style. Aggressive culture that shuts people down. No team work, very dividing culture.
Sales executive (Current Employee) – Michigan – September 13, 2013
Upper management created culture of aggressiveness and opinion based behavior. Cow-boys style. Very old style and culture of dividing people, instead of building teams. Information are poorly communicated. Upper Management lacks basic skills.
