Horrible!
Outside Sales (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 July 2018
Horrible place to work. Training consisted of driving around and looking at businesses and not actually going inside or talking to them. No wonder my sales performance wasn't up to their expectations. Your only as good as the people teaching!!!! Sales meeting were boring and if anything killed my good vibes to sell. Management super boring, its no wonder they are always hiring new sales people. They need a new / modern approach. Maybe take some lessons from high performing sales in a different setting (car sales) they sell tonnes of vehicles because they are so upbeat. Lets not forget about the way management treats you (like a child). They micromanage everything and all of their sales meeting are a huge waste of time. They need to go back to school to learn the difference between needing a meeting or writing an email. Whatever you do, avoid this place like the plague.
Pros
some of the people that work there are great.
Cons
everything except for the one pro.

Very disorganized
Service (Former Employee) –  Canada15 November 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

If you can, find something else!
Sales (Former Employee) –  Canada3 September 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.

Decent Work, terrible if your from Canada
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray22 August 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

leading company in the crane inspection industry
Site Planner/Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB13 June 2015
As a Planner Scheduler for Konecranes, at Shell Albian Sands, I was given the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people. I worked closely with the OMC, Scheduling, Planning and Major Maintenance group with Shell Canada. Providing Konecranes, front line support as a partner with Shell Albian Sands.
With my multiple contacts and standing relationship with the Major Maintenance group, I was able to ensure that all aspects of the compliance code, were met and exceeded my expectations.
I was given an opportunity to expand my knowledge in the SAP world, creating notifications and monitoring the WO processes. As well as expanding my knowledge of the parts pertaining to the inspections for the over 170 cranes on site.
Working with three demanding software programs, provided a busy, productive and constant learning curve to my everyday.
Highly recommend Konecranes Canada, to anyone that is eager to be challenged.
Pros
Opportunity to grow and fullfill goals
Cons
Manageement support

Not Great
Service Planner (Former Employee) –  Calgary24 January 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.

Large Publicly Traded Corporation
Regional Administrator (Former Employee) –  Burlington15 September 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

- hired as a Service Advisor/Planner
- Purchasing Agent/Department added
- Shipper & Receiver added
- Logistics Dept. added
- management running around with "head-cut-off", unable to keep track of what they did, when they did it, etc.
- ridiculously large amount of paperwork that grew daily
- not enough time in a day, a week, to do the job properly
- communication between management and it's workers was the worst I had ever witnessed
