    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and great people to work with

    Cons

    Everything else! Company admits that the superintendent role is the hardest job in the company but does nothing to support the position. Lots of turnover due to the high stress environment. Superintendents are not given the tools they need to properly do their jobs. It’s like building a house without a hammer.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on profits and more on customers.

    Good Pay and Great Opportunity. Mentorship is available everywhere with so many experienced people in the office. Great place if you want to learn from veterans.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, travel opportunities. That's about it.

    Cons

    Schindler really is a fantastic company to work for as long as you're not in the Cleveland office. My experience there was miserable - lots of unprofessional people, company policies not being abided by, harassment going on. The people in that office will suck every ounce of happiness right out of you.

    Advice to Management

    When people have concerns, listen to them...

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, healthy amount of OT, PTO, friendly Co workers, customer service week is a blast but too bad it's only one week long.

    Cons

    Pay could be higher, the job gets repetitive, hard to advance to a different department. So far it seems like management is all hired from an outside source. They don't hire managers or supervisors within.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good for right out of college but don't stay long. Some nice people around the country, but most of the positive, inspiring managers have recently left and the new ones are rude and divisive.

    Cons

    Poor management. Lack of diversity. Little innovation and technology. Stuck in '90s. Cold and restricting culture.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better. Empower and respect associates. Keep your egos in check.
