Crane Inspection and Repair Technician (Former Employee) – Oregon and Southern Washington – 13 September 2013
afraid of heights? demanding environmental and safety hazards. Benefits were ok, but long hours and some travel. Lots of paper work! Selling is involved. I liked the outdoor locations, Oregon is beautiful.
Field Supervisor (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 19 April 2017
I really enjoy working at Kone, but unfortunately, I am away from my Family and Friends in another province living alone.
Kone has a variety of great tools in which to not only track the progress of specific jobs, but at the same time, they can also track the work force to ensure that the operational side of the business is meeting their weekly and monthly objectives.
Kone is a fair and respectful company with additional resources to help you as an individual grow to be better at your job, along with the potential for upward growth within the organization.
I would recommend working for Kone to anyone who has either a sales, marketing, or even an operational background.
Mechanic Helper (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 22 January 2016
Work would begin with a brief safety discussion between the helper and mechanic about the procedures, safeguards which would be in place that day. Upon which we would mobilise equipment, materials and tools needed to complete each task. At which point we would execute the plan as efficiently and safely as possible. Rail Installation was my favourite part of the day. My least favourite part of the day was if certain materials had been delivered damaged or not at all and we had to order replacement parts we would be in limbo until they arrived. My co-workers were all very passionate about building a well function, safe elevator which I really enjoyed as I enjoy working with professional, committed people who pay attention to every detail.
very diverse knowledge required (mechanical, electrical, construction, tools, etc.)

Administrator-Service Division (Former Employee) – ON – 9 October 2012
My day would consist of opening work orders, processing expense reports to be approved by Branch Manager. Daily entry of technician hours, ensuring all purchase orders, hours, expenses related to a job have been entered, thus allowing closure of job. Maintaining the "contract base" for Burlington; this consisted of entries of contracts for service to customer's crane equipment, loading contract into system. The "base" was balanced daily/weekly and total information was required prior to the last "month end day" to have budget numbers/amounts entered for final service numbers.
It was interesting to see how cranes were produced/manufactured and learning about the various types of cranes, gantry's, jibs, etc.
A typical day wasn't always typical...you wanted to be sure there was balance between service work but making sure the customer needs were handled, especially when entering of the contracts, getting the information to customer in a timely manner, along with the booklet for their files.
I enjoy dealing with customers, whether it be by phone or in person, even though sometimes there were hiccups to deal with, truly enjoy that aspect of this particular job.
dealing with the other administrators from across canada
