    I have been working at Konecranes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Been with Konecranes for a year. If you want to come to work every day and be challenged by new opportunity’s this is it, each day is completely different. The people I personally work for are very caring and follow the perfect idea of the companies vision. The people I work with all want to be better every day.

    Cons

    Some days are stressful but if you want to succeed then it’s nothing you can’t handle

    I worked at Konecranes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The firm gives everyone an opportunity to add value. Training is provided if the employee tries hard enough. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Scheduling is (for better and worse) always on the customer's terms. This is not the fault of the firm exactly, but it is why they cannot attract enough people into the role.

    Pros

    Bottom line is that KONECRANES is a solid, profitable company.

    Cons

    Like most employers, when it comes to hiring people lower and middle management, they lack any ability to effectively identify what a qualified candidate for management even looks like. Here’s how it is, If someone excels at their job, for example as a technician, well then they’d almost automatically be hired as a manager if they wanted it. I guess their thought is that if someone does well at this job, then they’ll obviously do well in management too, Right? NOPE!!!!!

    Pros

    Fast paced, and small team environment.

    Resources advertised as plentiful to grow the branch, but they are difficult to receive. District leadership has unnecessary constraints hat make it difficult to grow the business.
