    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moline, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KONE (Moline, IL (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Very nice, friendly. There were two interviewers in a closed office. They were very focused on experiences from my other customer service jobs. I think they were very impressed with 5 years.

    Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lisle, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Lisle, IL (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Very brief details given regarding core functions of role, along with vague explanation of challenges facing the role, current accounting issues and primary reasons for creation of this role. The role was to reacquire outsourced FP&A, AP and AR functions that violated service level agreements. See below question and answer. Based on answer provided, feedback was that answers were “too negative” and “badmouthed current employer” although questions were specifically asking for challenges faced at current role and why.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KONE.

    Two phone screenings and one online virtual Q/A. First interview was a traditional interview with common sales questions. Second interview was more of a test to see if I could hold a conversation. Virtual Q/A had several situational questions.

    Sourcing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allen, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Allen, TX (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for this position in Allen, TX. It started with an email setting up for phone interview a week after I applied . HR (Ms Jin Crouch) is very professional and has very good knowledge of the position she interviewed. We discussed for almost an hour on the phone, followed by the onsite interview right after that. The on-site interview is easy. However, when I followed up later, they told me they decided to promote people from inside. I was thinking if that was the decision, why they wasted time of both sides going that far into the hiring process. But anyway, I appreciate HR taking their time to update and Ms Jin even called me to let me know about their decision, which not a lot of people do considering the high number of candidates they handles every day.

    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for a role based in Allen, TX. I was contacted via email by a Chicago-area Recruiter to schedule a formal phone interview. We spoke a few days later. Her questions were standard-- current situation, reason for looking, overview of skills. The Recruiter gave an overview of KONE, but seemed to have very limited knowledge of the role itself, the office, key relationships, etc. In other words, the Q/A was one-sided and not very helpful for me, as the candidate. I continued doing research on my own via a family friend who worked at the facility. I was told I would receive and update shortly about next steps, but never heard back. A standard move for companies these days, but unprofessional nonetheless. I wish executive leadership would understand what a bad taste it leaves in the mouths of prospective talent, who have deep networks, and willingly share their experience with peers (and current employees, such is the case in my situation).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KONE (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I did the video interview and one skype interview. It went pretty smooth and she asked me about my experiences and some of the technical questions. She's from Finland, so she has a little accent. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, and she asked around 5-8 questions. You have to familiar of what you are applying for.
