I worked at Crown Equipment

Pros

Wide range of prenium product. Interesting sales process and job satisfaction upon closure of sales.

Cons

Lack of leadership from mid and higher management. Incompetent manager (mid-level Management). Lack of networking within related industries from the mid-level management. Pricing and decision making responsibilty was not authorize to sales personnel thus making sales closure difficult. No sense of job security.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do allow sales personel to have full access to pricing and enpower them with decision making responsibility. Enhance networking within related industries.

    I worked at Crown Equipment

    Pros

    Amazing facilities, always kept clean and well lit, really encourages good work to be done. Work that I was doing felt rewarding, in depth, and productive.

    Cons

    Location wise, it is not easy to feel fully entertained as a young person looking for many varied things to do and experience outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication between management seemed open and honest, yet would've liked to have been included a little more in meetings and strategy planning even though I was a co-op.

    I worked at Crown Equipment

    Pros

    decent pay & strong market share

    Cons

    highly experienced techs are relentlessly micro-managed . any plausible excuse is used to deny raises . unskilled rookies are hired by the boatload
    then turned loose at customer's .techs are routinely required to participate in inflating customers bills. field service managers are incompetent & always running scared

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    return to the customer service ethic that built Crown Equipment in years past , and re-learn that empowering the people in direct contact on a daily basis creates growth.
