Order Puller / Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 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.
Non-management (Current Employee) – Ontario – 16 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.
Co-workers are great.
Employees under payed. Culture needs improvement. Company lacks training and support for new hires.
Modernization Engineer (Former Employee) – Cairo – 16 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.
exposure to supply lines and different operating units
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.

Shipping (Former Employee) – Baie-d'urfe, QC – 9 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.
Project Accountant (Former Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – 28 November 2017
Very poorly managed company with low job security. Management was not responsible and the overall work was always going side-ways. Management was always good in blaming workers rather than focusing on managing.
Supervisor/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON – 16 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
