Work culture and management was great but job security and advancement was lacking

Tedious work, which is to be expected from being an accounts payable technician.

However, management and the overall work environment was great everyone was very friendly and willing to help.

Order Puller / Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON17 September 2018
This company hires through their own agency(Summit Personnel), but pay comes through ThyssenKrupp. You are considered hired but never can receive benefits. Treated like a temporary employee but still expected to follow all company rules and regulations.

Operations Coordinator and Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC22 August 2018
Be prepared to hustle! Fact paced & you are expected to take on many roles with minimal training. Granted this was at the branch I worked at and may not be the same at all branches.

Non-management (Current Employee) –  Ontario16 April 2018
Management and Human Resources does not care about their employees. No opportunity for advancement and no professional development provided for employees to grow. Culture has gone down over the years. Employees are there because they need income not because they love what they do or where they work.
Pros
Co-workers are great.
Cons
Employees under payed. Culture needs improvement. Company lacks training and support for new hires.

thyssenkrupp elevator Egypt experience
Modernization Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cairo16 March 2018
its the company where I learned what vertical transportation is. They are pioneers when it comes to unique engineering however their presence is the market is not up to the level of their potential with no clear market growth and business development strategy. They were very weak when it came to working systems (ERP systems) unlike the other global elevator companies.
Pros
exposure to supply lines and different operating units
Cons
very weak and disoriented managemetn

Temp Position
Inventory clerk (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC12 March 2018
I worked here as a temp so I do not have much to say, staff was very friendly. There was little training for my position but I don't believe that is the case for permanent positions.

Office Administrator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB26 February 2018
The mechanics and office staff of TKE are absolutely fantastic! But the branch and corporate management leave something to be desired. Though they pay well it's not worth the treatment received which is too bad because it could be an excellent place to work. They have excellent safety standards and great staff but lack proper management and HR.
Pros
great people, good pay
Cons
poor management, poor HR

Productive and great place to learn new skills
Support Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON9 January 2018
A unique and diversed environment to work, fairly laid group of people. Great place to learn and develop new skills.

Longer work hours, but longer lunch.

Salaries are lower comparatively.

No opportunities for advancement, and too many half-baked changes and implementations in the culture with no follow-through.

Poor management who don't care about the little people. If you're looking for career pathing and encouragement, this is not the place to work.

A revolving door mentality.
Pros
Multicultural Environment
Cons
Poor Management

Avoid at all costs
Shipping (Former Employee) –  Baie-d'urfe, QC9 December 2017
All management decisions are based on how much more can they get on their bonuses. Existing employees are encouraged to watch and report all your errors/shortcomings. Constant demand for more overtime to the point of threats that they will get rid of you, high number of burn outs with new employees. Existing employees resist training you for fear that you will be their replacement, adds to the stress. They hire through a contractor, job offer can be as long as 2 years.
Pros
Not one
Cons
Just a horrible place

Nothing good

Very poorly managed

Supervisor/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON16 October 2017
I made it to Team lead, and wasn't able to go up any further, cause the company wasn't growing. It stalled cause no one was selling the service we were offering. Very little pay increases, and way too much work being asked

Other (Current Employee) –  Central Canada17 August 2017
Employment and advancement is based on who you know rather than what your skills and qualifications are.
Improvements routinely take unreasonably long amounts of time to implement.

Would be a good place to work if internal policies and procedures were actually adhered to.
