HJ3- A company that makes a difference

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at HJ3 Composite Technologies full-time

ProsPros - HJ3's product line is exceptional, saving clients money and repairing our failing infrastructure using their patented carbon fiber and advanced composites. HJ3's products have many applications which can save lives & money by repairing and extending the life of essential civil, commercial, residential and industrial structures. Making a difference is a key motivator for me, so if making a difference is important to you, this would be a company to look at. The people are nice and there is a sense of team. HJ3 is a growing company. In this economy that speaks volumes. My manager is wonderful which makes my job even more rewarding.

ConsLike any growing company, HJ3 is experiencing growing pains. Candidates should be flexible and able to multitask.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible experience, Engineers beware!

Intern/Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I worked at HJ3 Composite Technologies part-time for less than a year

ProsWorkers are friendly for the most part...

ConsManagement has no direction and chain of command is very unclear. Very unprofessional communication, attire, engineering standards are bleak, office is loud and can obtain crude humor that is offensive. Would never recommend this company for any section of employment.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your door and learn the values of your employees and see what HJ3 needs to progress

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsFamily oriented, great hours, upper management is very helpful, Hard working and fun environment that I look forward to everyday.

ConsI-10 construction is a huge pain, as well as the 7:45 a.m. train. Sometimes hard to get off interstate.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep setting your goals high, It is amazing to see the company as a whole reach our goals and celebrate in our victories. Looking forward to what the future holds for HJ3

Dynamic Company with Awesome Team

Accounting Manager (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at HJ3 Composite Technologies full-time for less than a year

ProsHJ3 is a dynamic, growing company with amazing employees, clients and vendors. Recently awarded two prestigous awards from Clean-Tech it is a company that has huge potential for growth and advancement for the right people. The right people have a positive attitude with a creative team spirit. The owner is putting together a group of people in all positions field techs, project managers, administrative staff, sales people and managers. Instead of a company that is down-sizing - this is a company that is actually growing! People who are hard-working, honest, positive and creative have an opportunity to help this wonderful company grow and expand - it is an awesome opportunity to be a part of such a team. It offers interns an opportunity to be mentored and have access to a job in their field of study, for entry level people it gives an opportunity to learn and grow, for experienced workers it provides an opportunity to teach and for managers it gives you an opportunity to be a part of a team that encourages collaborative team building. Being on this team provides me the opportunity to be a part of something very, very special and extraordinarily rare - participation in a company that is going very far, very fast.

ConsI live on the Eastside so the commute is a little long.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to search out for the best of the best. The path of building a bigger company with an outstanding Management Team and supporting staff is an awesome opportunity.
Good job! Congratulations!

You will be challenged like never before - be part of a progressive, dedicated team built to achieve results!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at HJ3 Composite Technologies full-time

ProsLearn to thrive in a thought-provoking culture of dynamic new ideas for business growth and personal development, employees share a high level of personal accountability and commitment to the process, there is a strong belief in the company's future from top to bottom, each team member is expected to make a difference, and there is never a dull day.

ConsAll I can say is that working at HJ3 may not be for everyone - this is definitely a different culture where it takes exceptional, dedicated talent to achieve the company's goals.

Making a difference

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at HJ3 Composite Technologies full-time

ProsFor the first time in my professional career, I can say I am truly making a difference in the world, and growing into the vision I have for myself. This is a company whose mission it is to save its clients money, plus save resources and lives by providing a cost-efficient way to repair our world's crumbling infrastructure. It is also a company that challenges itself and its employees every day to be better. We all hold ourselves accountable. Each time we reach a new milestone, it is incredibly rewarding and as a team, we know we could not have done it without everyone's contribution.

ConsIf a results-oriented workplace is not your thing, you will not be happy here. If it is, you will thrive. This is a culture that is motivated by constant challenges, and we definitely celebrate the victories.

Feels like a sweat shop!!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at HJ3 Composite Technologies

Prosemployees
technology is good, but management needs to understand that people help you sell

Conswork environment - management manages to keep the environment tensed and under pressure
zero transparency - its such a small company there would be absolute transparency, but management trusts absolutely no one.
pay is what the management thinks they want to give.. they don't see your talent or what you are worth. very arrogant management.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople provide value to your company. Learn to respect them! In the least case, respect them as human beings!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great place to work, doing great things for the world

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at HJ3 Composite Technologies full-time

ProsThe culture is open, with good-hearted people working together to make an impact. It is a pleasure coming to work, knowing that you are making a difference, that your work is respected and there is a ton of opportunity for growth.

ConsThe current freeway construction can make the morning drive take 10 to 15 minutes longer than it should, which is a little frustrating. However, this is temporary.
