MARKET DEVELOPMENT MANAGER/SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Boston MA – January 19, 2016
Jumping into the industry with no prior experience can be tough, but there were training opportunities and support available to get off and running. Many different avenues to shape a career internally.
a fantastic company to work for I learned something new everyday.
Field Coordinator (Admin Support) (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 29, 2015
Coordinate between superintendants and mechanics daily work schedules, safety training, parts to be ordered that will help complete the daily mission. Setting up travel arrangements for mechanics needing to go to training out of state. Performing office admin duties for the superintendants that allow the superintendants to get out in the field with the mechincs. Notify mechanics of any problems customers are having with there equipment on site. Compile material need for monthly safety training sessions. A typical day is talking to sales, superintendants and mechanics focusing on an projects to help complete the daily mission. I learned more about the mechanical aspects of elevator operations, construction and modification. My co-workers have many years of knowledge that I was able to draw from to enhance my knowledge and experience. The hardest part of this job was having minimal knowledge basiscally I had to start from scratch which is a challenge. I love a challenge. This job was a prototype job the first that Schindler tried I made it my own with the help of many people the worked in this office I found success.
Employee (Current Employee) – North Carolina – October 6, 2015
Used to be a good place to work. Now, management runs products though that are questionable. If some big customers actually knew about the product quality they were getting and complained, I think some management staff would change there ways or else get fired. Too much talk and little action to improve problems. Many employees unhappy how things are now.
Over time work.
Bad managment, no longer a pleasant place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Oak Brook, IL – September 15, 2015
Administrative responsibilities with management, supervisors, sales force and mechanics. Acquired computer skills, experience with project management, invoicing, payroll and customer service. Management lacked communication skills. I facilitated payroll and data input for the mechanics, whom I enjoyed working with. Interaction with customers and personnel in additional Schindler offices was also a plus. Disappointing that there was no room for advancement.
Corporate minded, treat you like you are their property
Customer Service Representative, Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Holland, OH – September 1, 2015
If you want to work in customer service at a fast paced call center that operates 24/7/365, where you will be required to work weekends and holidays, and if you do not sign up for enough OT on your own, you will be MANDATED to work weekends and holidays, regardless of your personal commitments outside of work (ie: school, children, funerals), then this IS the place for you! The people who work there are good people for the most part, but the way it is managed, and the way they treat their employees, is deplorable at best.
I loved working for the company but after while the amount of heavy lifting took a toll on my physical well being. I enjoyed the independence I was given by my supervisors. Working with the outside contractors was a great addition to my work week.
Warehouse atmosphere and independent work environment was great.
Interact with engineering, R&D, vendors as well as customers. Manage distribution center stocking for organization.
I’ve enjoyed working with a great group of people and have learned a great deal, however I am looking for greater opportunities. This opportunity is very interesting to me, and fits very well with the direction I want to take my career and I believe your company would be a great place to pursue those opportunities.
Hardest Part: Having your hands tied within parameters.
Enjoyable Part: to win that deal that generates a profit and is a win for the customer.
Senior Financial Analyst - Zone Americas (Current Employee) – Morristown, NJ – January 13, 2015
Day-to-day work is ok..however senior management is all men and can't see women to move up and get promoted. A lot of the Senior Management in the US headquaters are all Swiss men, with different culture expectations.
health benefits not good, obeserving only 8 holidays a year.
Hard working dedicated workforce, not enough customer/service oriented
Sales Manager NI Benelux (Current Employee) – Brussels – November 6, 2014
Wonderful company with very dedicated workforce. Group management is highly professional. Products are the best available and services are currently not enough customer oriented. Local vision is keeping back the development and performance of people. Customer orientation is limited to the first layer of management. Professional and analytical intelligent, local management, driven by short term profit, where is a lack of customer orientation and service minded intelligence. "First things first" is locally somewhat lost: First delivering good products and services will pay off. Your service customers satisfaction will rise, your portfolio will grow and it will bring long term profitability.
