    I worked at Crown Lift Trucks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits- You get your birthday off (paid)- Several paid holidays -Free uniform program- Opportunities for growth are there

    Cons

    LOTS of heavy lifting- Cronyism is VERY prevalent in certain branches- Very negative culture in the branch I worked at- Lack of employee training/support

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your branch management teams, listen to what employees are saying during their exit interviews. You're a great company but your middle management is terrible.

    Pros

    Great environment full of professional hard working people. Outstanding training and benefits.

    Must work long hours, weekends, and sometimes during vacation. Also car reimbursement barely covers the wear and tear it endures.

    I worked at Crown Lift Trucks full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The only pro of the company is they provide you the day of your birthday off.

    Cons

    Company claims they care for their employees but they don’t. They care about the numbers. Have to work a whole year to get 1 measly week off of vacation. Right before I left, now they give 3 personal days you can use within the first 365 days of you being employed. Still not that great. Management is okay, not the greatest. The HR girl has attitude & you can tell she’s there to help the company not the employee. High...

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees not the numbers. Provide more time off for your employees who work like animals. Very easy to judge when you are sitting behind a desk all day & not working in the field. Maybe some of those in management should have field experience so they have compassion & understand what the employees do when they are out in the field all day long in whether it’s hot or cold, rain or shine!!

    I worked at Crown Lift Trucks full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    All the general employees were fantastic, the technicians , the sales coordinators, rental dept,parts department...Very friendly...

    Cons

    There is a Good Ol' Boys club amongst management. If you do not fit into their mold, it will not work out...Managements needs the utmost control over every aspect of the department that they are managing. This is not standering, this is truth. I worked there for 10+ years...then a new manager came on board in my department that did not care for me. Many negative "reviews" later (they started March 2018) I was eventually...

    Advice to Management

    There better be a cleanup in management and the attitudes before this location of Crown Lift Trucks implodes...This is not the Crown that I remember starting with back in 2008. The bottom feeders came up and cleaned the tank of what THEY didn't care for...
