    I worked at Columbus McKinnon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Money and benefits are good. Location and facility is convenient and well maintained. Technology is good and improving. Good people to work with that care about the company.

    Cons

    Too many directors with big egos that treat middle management poorly and in a disrespectful manner. Company direction changes often. Poor implementation planning for plant divestitures and or acquisitions. Long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with the respect they deserve. Take responsibility for your mistakes and learn from them. Check your egos at the door.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Columbus McKinnon.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication included a direct contact on LinkedIn from the recruiter. From here we moved to a series of phone interviews followed by a face to face interview with the recruiter and department manager. The recruiter was very personable and welcoming. She seemed very sincere in everything we discussed and was one of the nicest recruiters I’ve ever been contacted by in my professional career.
