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.

Didn't keep their promises on promotion. Gave this company 8 free months and was passed for a supply chain position. They hired an employee from Mexico for this.

Email Agent (Current Employee) –  Moline, ILJune 12, 2018
I worked at Kone via an employment agency. The interview process was all done by Kone. The job is laid back, the environment is pleasant. Management knows your name. You're never just a number.

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

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.

Poor management
Electrical Assembler (Former Employee) –  Allen, TXFebruary 25, 2018
I am a contractor at Kone, but the management and how they operate the place is very unappreciated. The working conditions are very poor. They have no temperature control in the Warehouse area, you freeze in the winter and burn up in the summer. Most of the employees see they are not treated fairly but they have to have a job just like me.

Mentally and physically demanding position
Elevator Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKFebruary 23, 2018
The work is mentally and can be physically demanding at times but pays well with excellent benefits. Management in the OKC area is a significant drawback. Some are great but they are the exception rather than the rule.
Pros

top heavy company does not trust employees
Service (Former Employee) –  Mobile, ALFebruary 4, 2018
Top level Management believes running the company so lean it hurts productivity. Field employees spend more time driving because the manpower is not there to help the customer. Middle management does not want to hear those excuses. They do not believe your excuses matter because their spreadsheet says otherwise.
Pros
company vehicle
Cons
lack of respect from management
