Amazing People, Beautiful Building, Poor Management and Location
Admin (Current Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – July 7, 2018
The culture is AMAZING at HME; it truly feels like a family. Everyone is helpful and encouraging. Benefits are okay, nothing special. Vacation time is always a plus, if your managers let you use it... The best/worst part about HME is that people like it so much, the turnover rate is pretty low in most departments. That being said, it's pretty hard to advance in your career there. They recently moved from Poway to Carlsbad, which increased the commute for a vast majority of the employees. Management tried to accommodate by allowing some employees to telecommute a couple days a week. However, who gets to telecommute is at the manager's discretion, which does not sit well with some employees. In general, the management at HME needs to be restructured as a whole; there are a lot of "this department is doing this wrong" and nothing is getting fixed. If you're the type of person that clocks into work and goes on autopilot, this company is perfect for you.
Desktop Support Technician II (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – June 19, 2018
The employees were very nice. I made friends in all departments because I had to assist every department. I learned a lot about my position at the company. It was at times stressful but, for the most part relaxed. The hardest part about the job was deciding when to take vacation. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.
SHIPPING CLERK (Current Employee) – Poway, CA – April 4, 2018
Typical day at work was pretty fun other than the gossip of one being. I learned a lot about AX and Avante which are applications to make tracking and shipping products easy. Management was pretty good because he trusted everyone to do their jobs without micro-management.

Coworkers were friendly. Very little supervision and very little training. Little feedback or guidance from management. Work did not match level of position. Work level too low could have been performed by technician, did not require enginner.
Tech Support Representative II (Former Employee) – Poway, CA – February 15, 2017
HME was a great company to work for. They have 401k, good medical and pay for sports leagues. The only reason I left is they were moving to Carlsbad. One of the cons of working there is the lack of socialization. You are constantly on the phones and to make sure they are covered at all time you're never on break at the same time as your coworkers.
Medical, Sports, Appreciated Employees, Good Pay
No socializing, working holidays, somewhat stressful
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Poway, CA – November 4, 2015
This is a strong and growing company which places a high value value on employees. Training and advancement is available to all employees. Excellent Human Resource Department provides fun and healthy activities for employees.
Assembler II (Former Employee) – Poway, CA – November 19, 2014
Well a typical day at work is trying to change the 1st shift asking regarding the products needed to finish a certain product and all the necessary parts needed and the proper documentation. In regards to management it is ok they provide good compensation to the permanent work force. My co-workers are all nice.
HME is a great place to work with opportunity for advancement
Customer Support Engineer / Trainer (Current Employee) – Poway, CA – July 24, 2013
HME makes a great effort to provide leadership and support for all positions, they still manage to provide a "family" work enviorment. My position interfaces with not only external customers but internal as well.
Well established company, opportunity for advancement

This company will fire you if you get too old and won't hire you even though you have worked in the field and soldered your whole life. If your experience is from a few years back they say your experience isn't current enough. If you tell them you can pass any tests they wanna give you, they just keep repeating your experience isn't current enough. What the ....?
