    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    PTO, Sick, other benefits, insurance fair. Field Techs are great

    Cons

    Work ethics of the sales and supers is very poor, they have a pattern of blaming others for shortcomings not just with other employees but with customers too. Very foul, unsuitable environment for professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary Company vehicle (when applicable)

    Cons

    Lack of direction Extremely high turnover rate Low office morale Lack of leadership Lack of regional support

    Advice to Management

    Schindler in Chicago, IL is truly a poorly ran operation. The suburban office has had 5 branch managers in less than 2 years. Operation superintendents don’t stay longer than 6 months, making it extremely difficult for continuity. Members of upper management (regional staff) don’t have a clear vision for the company nor a realistic gameplan to hit their metrics. Clients have gone YEARS without a maintenance visit resulting...

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time

    Pros

    OT available if wanted. Decent pay.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Little to no opportunity for advancement. Have to start as a temp, and wait 8-12 months to become a permanent employee. Will mandate employees to work and threaten attendance consequences if you don’t agree to work. Horrible attendance policy-outdated points system. Showing any initiative at work gets you extra projects without extra pay, benefits or actual time to complete them.

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to what your managers are doing and saying, and actually require them to be competent managers.
