This company is full of terrible people. The manager's and leadership group are horrible, stroke each other's ego's, and have no tangible skills that they bring to the table. The culture is work for us as much as possible but don't expect to be fairly compensated or expect any loyalty in return. They care about profits above all else and will screw you over in a second. The company is also full of failures that couldn't hack it anywhere else, so they bring their bad attitude here and make the place a hole. The catchphrase is "the best of the worst".
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible culture, back stabbing people, huge egos, no drive to serve or help people, collection of people who aren't good enough to work anywhere else.

There is no “on boarding”. You have to learn on your own. They give you the tools and claim they want to help.
This is a very top heavy company with high overhead so it’s difficult to compete.

I've been laid off for 3 weeks now due to the Corona virus. Cranes don't catch viruses. But, it's keeping 3 Louisiana techs working while the 4 of us in Arkansas are laid off.

It was an excellent place to work. Downturn in business right now, so position being ended. Hope to be back there in the near future. This is all due to the COVID-19 pandemic and could not be helped.

Pros:
Pay/compensation is average for the industry. What you don't get in hourly pay is made up in benefits. If you like a lot of overtime, all you have to do is be good at your job and you'll get it. Company truck, company iPhone. flexible schedule (most of the time). Friendly management.


Cons:

A lot of miscommunication/non-communication ends with technicians not having a full day of work. Work cycles depending on sales volume. Extreme swings in weekly hours (Think 25-100 hours). A lot of days, you don't even know the task until you're on customer site, leaving you without things you could have brought to be better prepared.

Overall, my experience here was overwhelmingly positive Largest crane company in the Industry which comes with immediate name recognition Paid well for what you do (however, by no means a lucrative opportunity) Work/life balance was good, able to work from home, just hit your numbers and you are left alone Numbers were very easy to hit, could not understand why my counterparts in other areas struggled so mightily.

I like working at Kone Cranes, but you top out in pay rather quickly, and raises are not given for cost of living, nor for performance. There is really no room for growth at all.

A typical day would include reviewing time, processing jobs for invoicing, and assisting workers and customers when needed. Not super stressful or overwhelming. Flexible hours and great benefits.

Since Kone is so big it does not care about employees they would rather take in more money then care for the employees
They pay good but what is good pay if you have work all the time

Not a good place to work. People will stab you in the back. You cant trust anybody. Lots of people with egos at konecranes which makes a very unhealthy work experience. I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody other than a college student.

Tons of training and tons of support. As a tech in a new field they provided plenty of tech support. Both on line and on the phone. This company spend a lot of time and money on their employees. Pay and benefits are great, very competitive.

This company allows disrespect between workers resulting in a toxic environment. This company does not value their employees. Most employees in this company are out to get the other to move up in the company instead of working as a team to be better. This company does not value education or quality work. It is hard to better yourself working for this company.

The pay is really the only decent thing about the job. You constantly feel like you live there with the hours they make you work. Management from Supervisors all the way up to the Plant Manager is a joke, they have the nerve to tell you that the people you have the line is your team and they're it, if anyone gets fired or quits they're not being replaced and they won't hire anyone else. Low and behold, 2 months later they lose enough people it badly effects our work output. They then proceed to take even more customer orders and tell us we need to put out more numbers. Supervisors don't have to work weekends like the rest of us, they can also come in 2 hours late everyday with no consequences, however if you're sick, or have issues with transportation it's an issue that can get you fired.

Management is bad.
They micromanage there people, there is no direction in this company, and they say you will have work that is not true. There will be weeks you sit at home with nothing.

Look ealse where for employment.

Or for crane work and repair

It's a good place to gain mechanical skill but, horrible work conditions and there is a lot of disrespect between workers. Everyone is out to get each other to move up in the company.
