A little bit of everything (Former Employee) – Mansfield, TX – March 8, 2017
We had a "market adjustment" from what they call it and turns out if they dont want to pay you they give you a "performance review" with one point under to not get the raise . I worked a level 3 job and after talking to numerous supervisor and upper management still nothing was done. Its a revolving door of people. All the employees are so unhappy. You only move up if your friends with someone. Ive talked to hr as well and nothing was written up... its like nothing ever happened. As long as they can save them selves thats all they're worried about. STRESSED OUT IS ALL I GOT FROM THIS PLACE.
Everything.... health care is expecive. Doesn't pay well for what you have to deal with
Machinist and Finishing Department (Former Employee) – Mansfield, TX – March 1, 2017
This company means well, but the work is very dirty, hot and repetative. Production expectations were extremely high, and people drop like flies. I learned a great deal about the value of having each others backs. I liked a few of my supervisors, but the hours started getting in the way of my family.
Great Internship not a lot of room for advancement
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – December 22, 2016
Not a lot of room for improvement in the company. They have a good set of engineers working in the department. Smaller facility of engineers to work for. Gained good experience in the field to get a full time job.
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Mansfield, TX – May 3, 2016
Management is very new and no structure within the company. Pay is okay for a person with no experience in the workforce or little experience. Not a job for anyone with above entry level work experience. Company will compromise defective tools to send to suppliers just to meet the demands of the customer. Co-workers are easy to get along with. Klein tools is easy money nothing hard expected out of anyone, nothing challenging about any position within the company under upper management. Company is no tobacco/smoke free on company premise. They are a Gun free zone and Health insurance is very high due to being based out of Chicago Ill.
Free lunch most the time is bagels and fruit, Very little pros. TBD by the individual
Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – April 4, 2016
This is a very good place to work if you are looking for an opportunity to learn/enhance skills in project management, process development, problem solving, and department management. Only downside is not much opportunity for promotion/advancement in company.
Hands on work, good balance of office versus shop floor work.

basically if you are friends with a "supervisor" you work your way up the ranks. On job postings level one through four all list the exact same job description with a dramatic change in pay. Don't bring your resume or worry about experience because they go by word of mouth.
fruit every once in awhile
pay sucks, management without general education, and leadership closes their eyes to friends
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – November 3, 2015
Through my time at Klein Tools I have had many different supervisors and lead large numbers of teams. This has exposed me to many different challenges and opportunities. In this transition process we are currently experiencing I am being look at by management and piers for guidance and doing what I can to make work easier on everyone with the limited power that I have.
