    I worked at ThyssenKrupp Elevator full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management is very open door. It is easy to get help from upper managers by just giving them a call. There is a lot of room for promotion if you work hard. They encourage working in all different departments to make you a well rounded and valuable employee. IC plan is better than any other elevator company (I know because I received offers from the other majors)

    Cons

    at the end of 2013 they were restructuring, which resulted in a lot of micromanagement and constant moving around and hiring/firing of VPs. it seemed like key people were not well trained for their specific job responsibilities because they moved around too much. A lot of "knee jerk" sales goals being set because the rest of ThyssenKrupp (outside of elevators) was not doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep upper management in their positions longer to develop relationships with sales. Visit offices that are far away so that you actually understand what goes on there. Don't punish good work with lofty goals for the next year.

    Marketing Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Frisco, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Frisco, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ThyssenKrupp Elevator in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from an African American Recruiter to interview for this job. I left her a message to confirm the interview but she never called me back. Then she did call at 10:00 am. the following Monday as she said she would. But then she asked if she do a phone interview at 2:30 p.m. the same day. I never heard back from her until 3 p.m. and I assumed she wasn't going to call me. Very unprofessional!

    Interview Questions
    • After the interview, she proceeded to tell me that my answers were basically not to her liking. She told me she didn't think I shared enough examples. She had 160 resumes for this one position and she was looking for the best of the best... But why hasn't she found anyone yet? Why is this position open?
      This was a very uncomfortable and awkward interview. She was talking down to me about my interviewing skills. I've been in the Administrative field for over 15 years. She had no right to tell me how I am supposed to interview for a job or give me suggestions! I've never had a recruiter do this to me!
