I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time (More than 8 years)
Aside from the employees who work to maintain relationships outside the work environment, the management work to maintain staff through fluctuations in sales.
The only con I can think of are the hierarchy loopholes you have to go through to get anything completed, but that is expected with any corporation.
Advice to Management
None I can think of, great leaders there.
I applied online. I interviewed at Manitowoc Co..
The first call will be a corporate recruiter will call you to verify your qualifications, salary range and location desired.
Second round will be a phone interview will be scheduled with the hiring manager to discuss the position.
Third round will be an onsite interview. This visit will take several hours as it will include interviews with hiring manager, their managers/directors, perhaps the work team , a plant your and HR for a company and benefits overview.
The entire process could take several weeks due to the schedule of the hiring manager.
Manitowoc has a friendly atmosphere and the recruiter will keep you posted at every step.
