    Pros

    Working with the families. Trying to assist them with equipment that was always breaking down.

    Cons

    Everything. I see they still post the same positive review. And, I know who that comes from. I worked at different DME's before. And, this has got to be the worst fly by night company there is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit pulling the wool over employees eyes. Quit hiding behind "Christian values" when you're really just stuffing your pockets.

    Pros

    Great camaraderie at the office, really good benefits, and the opportunity to help people who are in the final stage of life.

    Cons

    Hospice is a 24/7 industry so National HME has to be there when needed. This creates long, unpredictable hours for the medical service technicians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communication open between headquarters and employees in the field.

    Pros

    Patient care, and working with home health companies.

    Cons

    On call is a killer, and they expect a lot out of you for little pay.

    Worst DME ever

    I have been working at National HME full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management at this place has a heart, and that the only one they care about is their own heart. Worse DME company ever.

    Cons

    every thing about this company.

    National HME was a great place to work, but very hypocritical.

    I worked at National HME full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with nurses, patients, and caregivers daily. It was life changing and certainly put a certain prospective on how valuable the services we provided were.

    Cons

    Upper Management at the time was not on same page with the actual vision of the company. They were very bias, and if you didn't weigh 125lbs and have blonde hair, you were never going anywhere with this company. Very much a good ol' boys club with senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advise not to hire based on looks alone. It would also be wise to actually know the operating processes before demanding changes to process that are working. Listen to the entire team not just one or two disgruntled employee, who were fired for a reason.

    I worked at National HME full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I think the national hme in Indianapolis has closed.... so thats a pro for the good people of Indiana.

    Cons

    Equipment was not cleaned to code, or often for that matter. Employees were treated with general disregard for safety, appropriate working conditions. Management was non existent and there was no concern for the patients well being or quality and cleanliness of the equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick the chair.

    Pros

    Helping families be together when someone is passing. Nice Co workers on the lower levels.

    Cons

    It forces you to neglect your own family like they do not exist. They throw you away if you get hurt and bypass dot regulations 70-80 hot week can easily happen. 12-16 hours days are the norm and they dock break time even though you do not get a chance to take one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your techs without them you will not get a paycheck your self. Treat them like humans and acknowledge they have families as well.

    Pros

    Lots of hours, pays a little better then walmart

    Cons

    No telling how many hours you'll have to work in a day no guaranteed time you'll be off, and no thanks for your hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the operations managers the ability to actually run their offices

    Pros

    It beats being homeless. Benefits. Paid time off. There is some satisfaction in knowing you are helping people, but it's diminished by the fact you can't help but be aware the company doing it so thinly veils their real purpose, money.

    Cons

    You will hear a lot about this "Grandparents standard" but NHME's real slogan is "Shut up and do it."

    The company sales reps make ridiculous promises that are completely infeasible, and contradictory to your job description. Fear not though because the burden will soon be set on your shoulders, regardless of if its 2am or not.

    The job requires a high level of commitment and knowledge, but wants to pay you close to nothing. You will be told it's an "Honor to help these people in their time of need" I guess it's just not quite honorable enough to be compensated for...

    Be prepared to give up any and all life that you once had, because regardless of what you've been told, you are at this company's beck and call until THEY say your done...and then some. Doesn't matter how dumb the task is, you're going to do it. Not uncommon to drive two hours one way to plug something in, or flip a switch.

    The company constantly runs out of the most basic supply's, I would compare it to Taco Bell running out of tacos. This results in irate nurses and patients which you in turn have to cater to and deal with.

    There is so much more but if you arn't detoured by this point you're probably not going to be. Good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing, not even the government is left with out some sort of checks and balances system. Perhaps if you would make some sort of effort in regulating the nurses/hospices/facility's ridiculous, lazy, lethargic, Idiotic demands your employees would stick around. If not that, at least pay the employees for the stupidity that you seem so eager to let go on, both internally and externally.
