Assembler II (Former Employee) –  Noblesville, INAugust 20, 2018
Everyday is different as far as challenges. The co-workers and management are pleasant to work with. If you were in charge, what would you do to. Programs really make a difference in the real job world experience.

Day shift with weekends off.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Noblesville, INJuly 1, 2018
It's a good place to work with having Friday, and Saturday, and Sunday off. One might have to work some Friday's but we never work the weekends. Warehouse is heated and cooled during the summer.

Average working environment
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Noblesville, INJanuary 27, 2017
You will stay busy and they typically do not get enough employees to handle the work load. Their expectations are above standard while the pay is a little low, benefits were going down when I worked here. I enjoyed the people most of the time. The work environment is climate controlled.
Pros
Sometimes provided lunch
Cons
wages and benifits were being eroded while production was being boosted

Very Clean Workplace
Assembly Associate (Former Employee) –  Noblesville, INDecember 7, 2016
A typical day included the assembly of various cooling unit for medical purposes. Workers were very kind, and worked very hard! The workers were most enjoyable, the heating of the building made working tougher on some days.

HR (Current Employee) –  Noblesville, INMarch 29, 2016
Helmer is a great company where you can drive your own career while making a difference for others through the products the company creates and/or by serving the community. The management team frequently asks for improvement suggestions and acts on the feedback. People are friendly and highly collaborative. It's a fast paced, fun environment.
Pros
Education assistance program pays upfront for education and there are other grant programs too.
Cons
Health insurance benefits are average. 401k is exceptional!

Management is very lacking in integreity
Fabrication Technician (Former Employee) –  Noblesville, INOctober 18, 2015
Very high turn over rate. The company claims to be family friendly, and care about employees, but it's all just lipstick on a pig. Hazordous working conditions due to aluminum and galvanized dust. Galvinzed welding in the fab area gives off toxic fumes. The laser dust coats everything, like your lungs. Management makes poor decisions, and employees are the ones who pay the price with non-stop mandatory overtime, miserable health benefits, and empty promises. If you don't have a life, and don't mind slaving for a company like a machine...you may be happy.
Pros
early vacation days, easy attendance policy
Cons
management is self serving, very high employee turnover

Helmer is great.
Intern (Former Employee) –  Noblesville, INAugust 29, 2015
Helmer is really fun and fast forward place to work. They have so much to do, there is always someone doing something, and they really produce a great product. Even hard days were made easier by the talkative faculty, funny stories and planned activities. I would recommend people to work there but most of all I want to work there. They have a workout room with good benefits outside of the workplace. In all ways, Helmer is better than great.
Pros
Nice workout room, nice break room. nice work place.
Cons
Not enough attention to sustainability.
