Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Always keep emails and take notes from meetings on SOP so it doesn’t back fires on you. Management can be forgetful and blame you for their mistakes. Huge favoritism within the warehouse.

Pros

Coworkers

Cons

Short breaks and lack of communication

Managers lie to get you out the door

Not a terrible place to work, co workers aren’t too bad but managers and anyone that has been there awhile will do anything in their power to get you out the door

Pros

Pay

Managers

Nice place bad supervisors and upper management.

It’s not a bad place to work but they do have a lot of issues. Most techs are easy to get along with but the supervisors and upper management are pretty bad especially the president of the company. The way they handled COVID was terrible, they laid off a lot of employees most had a lot of years into the company 5-15 years while keeping kids that barely had two. Zero communication during the furlough layoff period. The hydronic department is the more toxic area mostly brought on by the supervisor and his pets he does very little to help his techs and bad mouths everyone but that happens in every department backstabbing to get to the top.

Pros

Laid back, decent pay

Cons

Layoffs, bad supervisors

Mostly easy day

The work was steady and the managers were pleasant to interact with, usually forgiving, but stern as well. They are lenient to a fault, but when the work day is slow you can find yourself scrubbing your desk.

Pros

Requesting time off and personal days

Cons

very little room for growth or advancement unless you are pals with a manager

Great place, poor wages

The Liebherr motto is, “we pay you with experience.” If job security and routine is what you desire, this is a fantastic place. If advancement and retiring is what you desire, look elsewhere. Great traveling, lots of cool people, bad pay, no advancement if you are not German or at least European.

Pros

Laid back

Cons

Pay is below market value

Great place, wish they could eliminate some of the cancer.

Work-life balanceWork-life balance at Liebherr Group is great. We have flex time and they are accommodating for doctors appointments.Pay & benefitsMy pay and benefits at Liebherr Group are sufficient. Both are solid.CultureCollaboration with my colleagues at Liebherr Group is interesting. Most people are great colleagues but there are some cancers who try to destroy moral while putting on fake faces to upper management. One guy will do nothing but bad mouth management then acts like an Angel.

Great environment, a few bad eggs though

Great place to work. Great work environment except a couple negative people that are employed. One specific person in the hydraulics shop that has already retired from the military and should have left the company long ago. He bad talks everything ecspecially to newly hired employees. He talks behind everyone’s back and tries to sweet talk his way with management to stay long enough to get another retirement. Complete suck up that leaves a bad taste for everyone.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

People that slip through the cracks

Multicultural international company

I really enjoyed to work with Liebherr as a Service Technician. Liebherr had gave me an opportunity to travel across United States and outside to Latin America. I have received overseas technical training in hydraulic and electrical fields. Also numerous certifications. Its great company to get experience and learn about cranes.

Pros

Lot of benefits and competitive salary, job security, on site and in class training sessions.

Cons

Low allowance per diem, difficult to advance in the company.

Recent work culture shift

Liebherr used to be a great company to work for. Recent changes in management have made the work culture poor. The coworkers are awesome, but they are sometimes led to undesirable outcomes by the poor management culture.

Privately owned.

Global company that offers unique opportunities to collaborate with high caliber people from all over the world. Great team members. Good HR dept. Privately owned requires adjustment time period to get used to if coming from the corporate world. Great environment. Solid company. Excellent benefits. If you have a chance to join the Liebherr team jump on it.

“Jekyll and Hyde” scenario.

Great place to work if you were fortunate enough to land a position in R&D Engineering. Not so much working in Production Engineering. Managers were incompetent and had personalities of a rock. Worst experience of my entire career.

Enjoyable work environment with a family like culture.

I interned at this company for 4 months and gained lots of great work experience. The company culture is friendly and inclusive. The pay is slightly low but the benefits are great. Overall Liebherr is a good company to work for.

Great workplace to work

I would still be working there if I hadn't suffered a Heart Attack which required open heart surgrey and had a stroke. I am now strong enough to return to work, it took awhile. Management there was great, they enpowered their people to do what they do best.

Extremely stressful and threatening work environment.

The environment was an insanely stressful working environment. Pay was extremely low for the level of work and skill that was expected. The company outright lied to employees about which shift they would be on. Anybody who wasn't management was treated like garbage. They did not properly follow FAA procedures.

Good place to work

Good place to work, management needs improvement. Old style work environment. Very old work practices and procedures. Less scope to learn new, and not recommended for beginners.

It's okay

If you are wanting to get into the field of aviation, a great way to get your foot in the door. Major supplier for Airbus, and a few components for Boeing. Sometimes if trying to gain further skill, or any suggestions, at time it seems some management may give the impression that what you may have to say is falling on deaf ears. Although I don't believe to be intentional.

They need more crane dealerships acrossed usa would be in better position in usa.

The liebherr cranes company makes best cranes in the world. The only thing I would say the company needs more tools to work on cranes not just hand tools. The managers higher up need to listen to mechanics working on equipment and not talk over them it would be better run that way. They give more road service crews credits for work that the garage does twice work.

The only employer that is more secure is the US Government.

Excellent benefits, stable business, and a great team of people. You will be hard pressed to find a better employer in Hampton Roads. Recently attended an "all hands" meeting, where senior leadership thanked us multiple times.
