Manufacturing Engineer | Florence, SC | Dec 14, 2014
A so-so place to work
The personnel on the floor can get the job done, but, like any work force, the supervisor must stay available/seen for them to make rate. The management, particularly the Operations Manager, has the problem solving techniques of a dinosaur. His technique about overcoming problems is to throw more personnel at it. When the job is completed, lay them off. Cannot think past his desk, and has an aversion to, long-term solutions. Doesn't like training personnel on the floor. The training is done by the Supervisor, at their level. The Engineers are doing so much paperwork and attend so many meetings, they can't get anything done on the floor. Most have meetings 7 out of the 8 hours a day. The contractors are the only ones whom are really getting things done. There was a recent 'epiphany' at the CEO level, the project tracking should be done via Excel spreadsheet rather than MS Project. The management even went to China for a week to come up with this clunky, hard-to-use, time consuming and; in the opinion of most of the engineers, completely worthless method to track projects. A position was actually created in each plant for a person to attend all meetings just to ensure this worthless method was implemented and updated. I spoke to this person and asked questions about how to incorporate date changes, include steps that could've been forgotten and remembered later, and alarms in the software to notify you about project impacts, to which they couldn't answer. I stated MS Project ac

Great company with an excellent benefit package and several various career opportunities
In being employed by the company for 18 years, I have been offered the opportunity to work in several various roles. I started as a sales representative and worked my way up to roles such as General Manager, Regional Sales Manager and my current role as Regional Business Development Manager. I have enjoyed each role for different reasons. One of the things I enjoyed the most is being able to teach others what I have learned throughout my career and being to experience others' successes. The most difficult part of my job has been to getting others to work cohesively within the operation and create a team effort towards a common goal. Once accomplished, it was very rewarding to see the group operating as one. My typical day at work consists of communicating with numerous customers on various topics, educating subordinates on processes and reinforcing the importance of achieving their sales goals, tracking and report results to my superiors. In closing, I have enjoyed many successes throughout my career most of which being the successes of others through my tutelage. I have also met several interesting people as well as developed close working relationship with my many high ranking managers in numerous capacities.

Great place but terrible pay
I really enjoyed my time working at Otis. I feel like the supervisors and the managers were pretty cool it depends on if they like you or not as a person. You have to take a lot of calls during your shift you can take up to 30 calls to 50 calls almost an hour depending on the type of calls that you get. As a dispatcher you work with mechanics customer calls and also sell wraps I think it’s a very easy job to have you will get it 100% once you go through training however the pay is not the best and people complain because it’s a very rigorous job but the pay is just and not up to par at all . A lot of people spend a lot of hours working there and even doing overtime on the weekends but the pay is just terrible for this job and the stress levels you should at least get paid 20+ dollars . The part of the job that sucks the most is the time off that you get if you’re late if you’re sick all that time gets counted against you and they really just want you at work so if you’re the type of candidate who doesn’t really want a high salary and doesn’t really want to much time off then you can work here.
ProsEasy work, A lot of learning, Great supervisors
ConsShort personal breaks (4mins a day), Short lunch breaks, Clique employee relationships, Not enough time off and sick time counted against you

Excellent Company
Otis is a great place to work. As with any company, your manager makes all the difference between a great experience and a poor one. Luckily, there are few poor managers, and Otis will coach and develop him or her. The vacation time is extremely generous. The health insurance has a low premium, but a very high deductible. If you have chronic conditions, ask to see the deductibles and premiums comparison chart. The leadership is solid and I expect Otis to continue to grow far into the future. The day-to-day differs depending on the department. You may be remote, or you may need to come into the office every day. I learned so much during my time there, both personally and professionally. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people and processes left over from the United Technology Corporation days. People are used to asking a dozen peoples’ opinions on a simple project. It doesn’t need to be that way anymore because there are no written policies stating that everything requires a committee decision. Old-timers are afraid to make a decision in case the project goes south. If it does, they are blameless because someone else signed off on it. Thankfully, as Otis gets new people, the antiquated thinking is going away.

Easy But Repetitive Work
I started working as an Electrical Engineer at the Otis Service Center (OSC) in Bloomfield CT on November 2019. I supported the contract engineer modification group and the job was EXTREMELY repetitive, but very easy. 100% desk (no hardware) and a great starting job. If you enjoy repetitive easy work and like staying where you are forever, then this job is for you. The term “Contract Electrical Engineer” for those interested is basically a glorified project engineer. You are responsible for anything and everything with a project (even when something has nothing to do with you). Other departments push all their work on you which can make things frustrating. The company is finally modernizing their work tools but they still haven’t ironed out all their problems. Work can be extremely frustrating when servers go down or custom software and Access programs get corrupted for long periods of time during the day (Happens very frequently). Great and supportive work environment! Coworkers are super nice and supportive! I left because I wanted to find a more exciting career.

Work-life balance It’s union IUEC international union of elevator constructors and was a four year apprenticeship but now it’s five. It has incredible Benefits. Otis offered to pay any extra schooling I might want related to the trade and also gave me 50 a week for gas which was generous. Great company to work for great union but I got hit in a car accident and had bad vertigo And it seemed it wasn’t going away so I left thinking my chance was over . Pay & benefits There’s per diam pay and it’s based of the union hall in Glendora to where your job is it’s called zone pay and it’s a daily additional pay. Plus vacation pay if 6-8 percent twice a year if your hours worked time base pay. Like I said incredible benefits Job security and advancement Work hard and become a higher position for higher pay. Three types of elevator work new construction , modification and service. Construction is all overtime is double time. But it’s harder.

A Rewarding Place To Work
(Temporary Contractor) At the Otis Research And Development Center, we strive to develop safer, smarter and energy efficient elevator systems. My primary responsibilities as a Contractor include the prototyping of various assemblies related to all of the elevator's operating systems. These systems include the Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical and Remote Monitoring of the actual elevator. I performed all stages of prototyping under the guidance of the Engineering Department. This includes the use of Hand and Power Tools, Electronic Test Equipment, Soldering Printed Circuit Boards, Wiring and Fabrication. I am familiar with all types of Soldering from Thru- Hole, SMT, Trace Cuts, Component Modifications, Wire Bonding and some Die Attach. After the Fabrication Stage has been completed, I also assist with Testing and Data Collection of the new equipment. The Testing includes Thermal, Environmental, and Surge Protection of the various operating systems. Once the equipment is fully tested it is sent out into the field and installed in a functioning elevator where more testing is done.

Get in, gain the experience and leave. Not worth your time or peace.
Employees here are rude. The environment doesn’t feel welcoming and supervisors have favorites. You accrue time off and get denied when you try to use it. Second shift doesn’t have a lot of workers but first shift is so full that they’re constantly sending emails for people to leave early. Things are not black and white, there’s so many grey areas and so the job can get super stressful. You’re being micro managed and you’re expected to take anywhere from 60-150+ calls a day back to back in a timely manner. This job makes you feel like a number. There’s no room to move up, you just remain a csr. Pay is decent but should be way more considering all the stuff employees take from entitled customers. Get the experience you need and leave. People have their own cliques so no one really speaks to you or acknowledges you. I remember my first day there . No one gave me a tour of the building, didn’t even bother to show me where the bathrooms were. They just told me to find a desk and take calls. Only good thing is the guaranteed hours. Would never work here again.

a typical day at work
I enjoy working their until they change management. I had so much work that the day went so fast. All my co-workers were happy to work and I was too but a new Manager showed up and started to treat some of the co-workers horrible include myself. He use to yield at my co-worker and myself. He taught that by being the Manager he had the right to do what ever he wanted with us. That is the reason I left because of the poor Manager. The Manager did not had any Manager skills. I reported him with Human Resources in Corporate office but he was still their. Now I found that he no longer their I will really like to go back their. Finally they did something good to transfer him out to Mexico. He was a rude Manager. He had preference with some co-workers.. oh well I wish him well and I am to hear that he his no longer here in California and I can hear that some of my co-workers or happy to hear that he is gone. Even thou I do not work their I am happy that the rest of my co-workers are finally happy... and enjoying their work.

One hand has no idea what the other hand is doing
Some of your coworkers are cool but, most all feel threatened by you if you're a good, hard worker and will do things to make you angry so you get into an argument and get fired. If you're a temp, you're a peasant. Lots of gossip and BS to deal with. It's a very cut-throat environment and management will most likely tell you that, but do nothing about it. The pay is pretty low for what they expect of you. The supervisors are usually clueless about what goes on or they just don't care. They will tell you that temps and full time employees are equal but, it's definitely not the case. You'll be asked to do work you're not qualified or properly trained for. You'll be bouncing around from line to line without proper training and without being compensated for doing other people's work when you should be getting a pay differential. The place is a mess, to say the least.
ProsFree lunch cards sometimes
ConsAwful management, too much gossip, being a temp for a ridiculous amount of time before being hired on, doing things you're unqualified for.

Mechanic | Sea Point, Western Cape | Feb 8, 2017
Very demanding but extremely rewarding position, lots of satisfaction
A lift mechanic is actually an area manager. It is a job "on the road". Good driving/road skills essential. A lift is a plant, layed out from bottom to top floor. Must be a good negotiator and communicator, inspiring professionalism, ethics, excellence, sense of responsibility, honesty. The job of a Lift Technician (officially called "Lift Mechanic" in SA) consists of taking complete responsibility over a portfolio of units (lifts) within a designated area, up to 100 units sometimes. Service, maintenance, tests, repairs, on site record documentation, house keeping, representing company to client(s) or site users. Repairs require high skills in mechanical and electrical fault finding, types/generations/ of lifts knowledge, working with computers, hydraulics (some lifts are hydraulic), etc. Very highly professionalism required to sort out faults within reasonable time, very rewarding also. Apart from scheduled service/maintenance, periodical tests (like lift's safeties), 3rd party inspections, it required attending to (unplanned) Call Backs at client's request, any time and promptly when the unit was giving problems, including rescue operations. Once a month, or 3 weeks, Stand By: attending to Call Backs and Emergencies after working hours, from 16.30 pm to 08am, over a group of areas/portfolios. Response time to site: 30 min, day or night. Overtime paid accordingly. That was the difficult part of it, completely unpredictable and quite tiring, in areas/buildi

Alliance entre technique et social
En tant que responsable de la maintenance au sein d’une imprimerie pendant 2 ans, j’étais en charge de la planification de la gestion des interventions de la maintenance, de la commande de matériel et de la gestion de mon équipe (deux intérimaires). Technicien de service dans le métier de l’ascenseur depuis 10 ans dont sept ans au sein d’OTIS, la gestion de mon secteur et la maîtrise des différentes technologies d’ascenseurs m’ont permis d’établir une organisation propre à satisfaire nos clients, dans le respect des règles de sécurité du groupe OTIS. Les retours positifs des clients comme de mes responsables, me permettent de penser à l’adéquation de mon profil avec la description du poste. Le poste de Supervisor service impose une forte implication afin de satisfaire les requêtes des clients dans le respect des normes du Groupe tant en terme de sécurité que de qualité. Il doit aussi répondre aux sollicitations de son équipe, anticiper les besoins et assurer la continuité du service édicté par le Groupe. C’est donc une fonction centrale, essentielle dans le processus qui demande une forte expérience technique et une connaissance approfondie des normes du Groupe. Notre collaboration confirme ces points là. Il requiert aussi un certain savoir faire en terme d’organisation et de gestion d’une équipe. Il est temps pour moi de faire bénéficier à d’autres mon expérience acquise notamment au sein du Groupe OTIS.

Friendly and positively motivated working environment
OTIS is a lift and elevator engineering company that aims that include community service. Which includes providing awareness, through small event, to the college of the basic functions of corporate company and way, means or roots they could take in order to work in the corporate world. I worked as part of the PTFL department providing assistants to the events coordinator. I obtained a variety of skills while working at OTIS such as the importance of team work while planning an event and being methodical while planning an event, as it enables you to be better organised, insuring that all that is need for the event is available. The skills I obtained however and the sociably friendly environment also made working at OTIS enjoyable. As the staff were eager to provide help when needed in any area unfamiliar. Each working day provided a challenge, however this to made every working day very interesting as once the challenges were resolved in hind sight they weren't much of a challenge, they became achievements. In the short time that I worked at OTIS, I was able to gain insight about myself individually, as I became more aware of my abilities and passion for events planning.

It is a specialised company used to manufacture its product invented by Elizabeth Otis and till date the name of the inventor of safe lift is being patented by its mother company at U.S.A, presently associated with United Technologies at U.S.A and administration is being controlled by them through functional management system distributed in different Pacific regions. Our area was controlled by SAPA and daily reports are being send to the HQ and awaiting decision from them. I have learned different sorts of work like safe and smooth installation & maintenance process, marketing for a new product & modernization, generation of bills & collection to close the sale. Management was looking for the higher and higher target for example target has to be double of the the last year achieved target to assigned the next promotion. People were selfish/ non-co-operative due to higher target in the small market. Achieve the installation target, keep the lift running without break down due to other related others job and to collect the final payment. The most enjoyable part of the job is that the building is being identified as elevator-ed by World no.1 elevator company.Example- Governor House, Reserve Bank Of India, Hindustan Building, TATA Centre etc.

Varied but unorganised. Nothing is explained clearly.
Typical day can be varied which is good, but the area where I sit is a mess. Paperwork everywhere and just lying around. In terms of the work, there are little to no procedures to follow and nothing is explained to me very clearly for the many systems they use. I'm afraid to ask questions because apparently I'm already supposed to know it after unclear brief explanations from a couple of weeks prior. Co workers are ok for the most part but some can be two faced about other coworkers when they are not present. Talking negatively about others when they are not there in a condescending derogatory manner (myself included most likely). Not a very professional atmosphere. At first I wanted to stay here for the long term as it is a very short commute and the work even though is unclear and not explained properly, is actually pretty involving and engaging which keeps me busy throughout the day. Now I'd be happy to just want to move on once my contract finishes. The basic summary is because I'm a temp here I've just been thrown there with little to no help given on anything (logins etc). I don't feel valued here whatsoever. There are better places to work.
Prosshort commute
Consunorganised, little help given with the systems, unprofessional attitude
