Dirty, Bad, and Dishonest Company
Sales (Former Employee), New Berlin, WIFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: the top upper management are good people however they are letting the dirt bags run the company!
Cons: dirty company!, the sales mtg is a farce!, they cook the books to make sure people do not receive their bonus!
They have dirty managers that cook the books! They will eventually be caught by upper management but till that day comes they mid-management and some upper managers will lie about employees to accomplish their own agenda and personal goals. They are back stabbing!

Good pay, high blood pressure
Crane Technician (Current Employee), Winchester, VAJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: company truck, good benefits, willingness to train new hires
Cons: long days, hectic schedule, always on call
higher paying non union contractor in my area. But it is service work and you are at any customers whim. When you get called you stay till the job is done. can never count on being home for things, ever. constantly squeezing you for time on your work. just generally stressful.

Great company. learned a great deal from their staff.
Technician/Electrical Assistant (Former Employee), Mobile, ALDecember 29, 2013
Pros: opportunity, on the job training, experience in sales and people skills, benefits
Cons: the smell of paper mills was tolerable but not my favorite!
Working for Konecranes was a great eye-opening opportunity to show my potential and learn important skills that will help me in every career path I choose. I am pursuing a career that will lead me in a direction towards opportunity and benefits. As the youngest Konecranes had hired I had a lot to prove and loved living up to every moment of it. My goal – more... right now is to build great references and to further advance my goals. – less

Care about their employees
Electrician, Maintenance, Inspector (Former Employee), Dothan, ALDecember 13, 2013
Pros: paid for nice places to stay when out of town, benefits, take care of their employee
Travel up to 4 hours a day round trip to jobs that required servicing, installing or inspecting overhead cranes and hoist. I have learned a lot about overhead cranes and hoist including inspecting. Management and co-workers were fairly easy to work with. I really enjoyed working with this company it was the perfect job.

awesome supervisor
Crane Service Technician (Former Employee), Cayce, SCOctober 17, 2013
Pros: the pay was good
Cons: scandals in the plant
People there were hard to work with. They constantly tried to scandal with everyone. When I was laid off it was the best thing that happened. I loved doing my job but the people were hard to figure out. Always controversy with something. It was who you know and hung out with like a drinking buddy after work. The easy part was doing my job. the hardest – more... part was the people. – less

Corporate needs to keep local management on a tighter leash
Site Manager (Current Employee), IllinoisSeptember 5, 2013
Corporate needs to provide more local oversight and not allow local management to randomly make financially irresponsible decisions that negatively impact local employees and the overall bottom line.

Good job for job security
fitter welder (Current Employee), Houston, txAugust 10, 2013
Pros: every june free tickets to splash town for company picknick
Cons: 2-5 years before being a company man
Konecranes is a good place to work when it comes to job security. Its hard to become an employee there with benefits. If you looking to become hired on as a company man this is not the place. Management is horrible never can get materials in for cranes. No material, no work, equals less hours or lay offs.

If your looking for job security don't look here
service technician (Former Employee), orange, txMay 7, 2013
Pros: made a few good friends
Cons: its a long list
I hired on through clayton, which is a temp agency konecranes uses, to do my 3 months probation. After about 4 months I asked when I would be switched to the company and I was assured the paperwork was being done because I deserved to be there. A month later I had to ask about it again. I was told I have been doing an outstanding job and been working – more... extremely hard and my paperwork is being done. In the mean time 3 other techs were hired on about 3 months after me straight to the company even though they had no crane experience. I went on every call out and worked every time I was asked to work a weekend. I worked my tail off until about 2 weeks ago when I was called in the office and fired because work was slow. Kind of funny since work is slow they just posted a job opening for a tech at that branch. If your not in the club and dont suck up to the bosses you will not make it. Its unreal how the place is run and constantly having to worry everyday if you will get fired or not. The manager's brag about how many people they have fired. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy. – less

as far as companies go not bad but OMAHA BRANCH SUCKED!!!
Crane Technician (Former Employee), Omaha, NEApril 24, 2013
Cons: way too many hours, branch manger is a horrible person!!!
The branch manger was horrible, DID NOT!!!!!! know how to communicate the task to the employee. The company as a whole was not bad they made sure that all new employees had new trucks and PPE. The branch manger only had enough common sense to buy ONE of each major tool that the crew would need. You are expected to put your job WAY before your family!!!!! – more... Do not apply at Omaha branch – less

Bad Management
Former Service Supervisor (Former Employee), San Antonio,TXApril 10, 2013
Pros: good benefits, 401k, company vehicle, gas card
Cons: management needs improvement, new business salesman disrespectful to fellow employees
Horrible Branch Management......As a new employee coming in from the outside , it was very obvious there were porblems already in place stemming from the lack of communication between the Service Manager, the Technician and the Sales person. Manager and New Business Salesman were real quick to throw blame for any mistakes made to anyone but themselves.
With – more... no regards to any type of training coming from the Service Manager ( or anyone else)for my position within the branch ,my employment as Service Supervisor with the company was doomed from the beginning. I was let go after only 4 months of employment.....which is exactly the opposite of what the company president tells you what they are going to do in his "Welcome to Konecranes "video. – less

Need to evaluate managment personal.
Service Technician (Former Employee), Knoxville, TNMarch 20, 2013
The company represents its self very well for the first two weeks of training but after that the Knoxville branch left much to be desired in most aspects of employeement. Just an example of what to expect ( buying light bulbs for the shop to faceshields seams to be a big deal. The benefits an retirement are pretty good. You will work 80hrs. one week – more... then the next you might get 32hrs. It could be a decent place of employeement. – less
