The elevator World
Service Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 22, 2018
Kone was a great place to work with major opportunities. Great coworkers. Working hours were 6am until you were done. The only issue was there was no time off. Superintendents are required to work 24/7 even when on vacation. Major issues with stress and upper management seemed to not care about hours worked.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Too many hours sometimes being 60-70 hours a week.

It's who you know to be able to advance
Shared Services Billing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILSeptember 20, 2018
Unfortunately, only certain people could advance in this company. The rest of us, were belittled and made to feel replaceable at a drop of a dime. It made for long days and weeks.

Management is apathetic
Maintenance Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Allen, TXAugust 4, 2018
Management fails to assess it's employee's strengths and weaknesses objectively. Friendship with the manager is valued more than work ethic and integrity.

High Pressure / Low Reward
Service Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 23, 2018
Depending on what side of the business you get into, you can expect varying levels of micromanagement. Operations is very demanding, especially in the service side. Compensation is pretty good, starting off either in sales or operations may be an excellent career move for you depending on your age and prior experience. 75% of the time you need to know someone to get in. Industry in general is challenging but mostly because the labor force is overburdened. This makes it difficult for customers to receive service so you can expect them to be calling non-stop. If you're in sales, you may be able to get a few sales out of a customer before you're inevitably let down by your operations staff. It's not necessarily their fault and it differs by branch. Hard to keep repeat customers. Commissions are best in New Equipment sales if you have a good market. Service Sales is paid quarterly and you have to fight way too hard to get paid out on what you sold. 3/5.

THE Dream Job
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Springfield, ILApril 13, 2018
At Kone, I felt like I was a member of a family, not an employee. Everyone is respectful, kind and caring. Even during the most stressful of times, everyone is willing to help. There was no real training for my position, which was a bit daunting, but thanks to the knowledge and help of the Central Illinois branch, I was able to catch on quickly. This is quite literally what I would call a perfect employer. The only real flaw I can point out is that communication is not always the best.
Pros
Excellent pay, benefits and work environment
Cons
Some Communication Issues

Nightmare.
Sales Rep (Former Employee) –  Rocky Hill, CTMarch 17, 2018
"Management" lacked basic skills unless they perceived a problem, in which case they would do their best to attack and remove the problem (a 20-year successful salesman was terminated because he disagreed with the so-called "manager". No communication between co-workers.. "Management" did not hesitate to demean, degrade and badmouth any employee within earshot of others. Unprofessional to the max.
Pros
After hours and weekends, any time I didn't have to be there.
Cons
Everything. Run fast, run far.

Payroll Clerk
Payroll Clerk (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILMarch 11, 2018
Learned different aspects of personal things that were kept track of.. How do mark employees information and make sure their appropriate information was correct for paying purposes. The management I dealt with were very nice and easy to deal with. I received all the incoming mail for the office and distributed to appropriate personnel. Worked in the mail and helped with the stamping of the outgoing mail to places all over the world.
Pros
Interaction with the staff in the personnel department were awesome to work with
Cons
The quietness on each floor was a bit strange for such a busy and big company

Electro-mechanical assembler (Current Employee) –  Allen, TXMarch 8, 2018

I recommend KONE as a good family based company
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Pennsauken, NJMarch 6, 2018
I recommend KONE as a good family based company. They really want to be there for you and will always try and help you out if you need it. KONE wants you to become part of the team and work together.

Push push push productive environment
Electrical Assembler (Former Employee) –  Allen, TXMarch 6, 2018
The work environment is climate control in assembly area, but you will freeze or burn up in the warehouse area. Production management sucks. Your watched constantly. The leads are not trusted to do their jobs. The warehouse is micro-managed by one manager. It's hard to become a full time work there. The raise is nickel and dime. It takes almost 2 years to get a nickel or dime raise. There is no equal opportunity. Growth depends on favoritism not your experience are work ethic. Attendance points punishment is for non exempt workers only. Exempt employees are exempt from the attendance point system. This not the place for opportunity.
