Very disorganized
Service (Former Employee) –  CanadaNovember 15, 2015
As may be true of any service company, the work was very unstable. The job was always there but it was almost never known whether or not there would be work that day. Management was very disorganized and did not seem to care about the employees, only their numbers. The benefits were good but the lack of stability far outweighed that.
Pros
Company truck, good benefits
Cons
Unstable work, poor management

Decent Work, terrible if your from Canada
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurrayAugust 22, 2015
Lots of foreign workers, almost rarely every hire Canadian Employees(technicians). Discrimination towards Canadian's is astounding. they would rather spent thousandths of dollars to bring someone into this country then train someone else up that would be much cheaper and less of a hassle for the language barrier. Although the people who do come in are great workers and great people its sad to see a large company like this take complete advantage of these people and pay them so low. company has an incredibly large turn over of employees, seen lots of office staff come and go and technicians as well.
Pros
Hours of work
Cons
Managment, Planning, Turn Around

Good job if you have good troubleshooting abilities and like working alone .They give you a company service truck and all the tools you need . Lots of overtime if you want it . Out of town work about 10 % of the time.

Not Great
Service Planner (Former Employee) –  CalgaryJanuary 24, 2015
Probably one of the most negative environments I have worked in. The workers in the office made rude, racist, and predatory comments all the time. There was a lot of politics going on in the office. This is not a good place to work if you don't fit in when it comes to politics and other drama.
Pros
hours
Cons
racism, politics, duties

Regional Administrator (Former Employee) –  BurlingtonSeptember 15, 2014
Typical day at work included invoicing customers, responding to telephone inquiries, working with service managers and administrators to help them solve their problems. Co-workers were very hard working dedicated individuals. The best part of this job was being successful in implementing a proven system and then watching it work. I am still in touch with my favourite manager there that said "get what you inspect, not what you expect". That phrase has stayed with me to this day.
Pros
easy commute

Great Work, very very poor management.
Overhead Crane Technician (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, ABJune 16, 2013
What was suppose to be a very good job ended up being a disaster, due to management. There is no accountability in this company. I terminated, with out cause, while rehabbing a sprained ankle and was paid extra severance to not take the company to court. This all happened after I complete a positive year end review, given a raise, and sent for 2 weeks of training in Burlinton, ON. Be carefull if you do go to work for Kone but if you a trades person I would suggest looking else where, especially in Alberta.

Today I am actually thankful for them terminating me because my wage increased 33% and I work in a much heathier environment then what was considered NORMAL at Kone.
Pros
the actual work
Cons
management, corporate attitude, politics, lack of accountability

If you can, find something else!
Sales (Former Employee) –  CanadaSeptember 3, 2015
Staff turnover is more than 40% in Canada... Upper management is completely disconnected with the reality at the base.
They created a monster of a CRM that would require a full day a week to keep updated. Nonesense!
You need to be able to help customers with their issues, sell service and products, not complete over complexed CRM and other system.
Bottom line, if you can have a better career opportunity, save your self some headaches!
Pros
None unless you are a technician in Quebec, union
Cons
Very, very poor management. Short term view, no understanding of market reality.
