I have been working at Columbus McKinnon full-time (Less than a year)
Everyone around me is hard-working, good benefits, culture is moving in the right direction with new CEO. People consistently seem to try to do the right thing. There is a lot of work to be done as the company moves forward- this is definitely uncomfortable at times (even for people who like change), but for the best. Everyone has been very friendly, supportive, and helpful as I've learned my way around.
Company is really complicated for the size, it's not easy to find everything/everyone you need to do a good job. A few folks are stuck in the past and not comfortable adapting. Some departments are understaffed.
Advice to Management
Keep on moving forward, try to share best practices across units and keep working on bringing business units together.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Columbus McKinnon (Getzville, NY) in February 2017.
Interviews were not difficult and were friendly; however, it was a very long and drawn out process. There should not be more than 3 interviews and this consisted of 4 over a period of 3 weeks. I felt it was inconsiderate to my situation- especially because they were aware of a pending job offer I was considering.
