    I have been working at Columbus McKinnon


    Investing to make the business stronger and better. Great colleagues who are always willing to help. Tons of charity work which is a testament to the hearts of the employees.


    Like any publicly traded company, decisions for long-term business health can sometimes be sacrificed for short-term investor gains.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to praise GOOD work and accomplishments often.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Columbus McKinnon (Amherst, NY).


    The initial communication included a direct contact on LinkedIn from the recruiter. From here we moved to a series of phone interviews followed by a face to face interview with the recruiter and department manager. The recruiter was very personable and welcoming. She seemed very sincere in everything we discussed and was one of the nicest recruiters I’ve ever been contacted by in my professional career.
