A former employee complained about the working environment on indeed.com, "Terex is a perfect example of a company not practicing what it preaches. Management only cares about the bottom line - period. It's laughable that they claim to promote diversity when everyone in upper management is white male. There is zero room for advancement - you are a number."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"As a relatively new team member, we urge you to reach out to your manager or Human Resources to discuss your concerns and gain a closer understanding of the issues you speculate about. By now, you should be aware that Terex does NOT place profits above team member safety or business ethics; and, that our CEO continually reminds managers and staff that NO priority is greater than the need to keep our team members safe, and NO pressure is greater than the pressure to conduct ourselves ethically and in strict compliance with all laws, regulations and the Terex Way values. After COVID-19 impacted our industry, many of our customers paused activity and our revenues declined. To preserve the financial strength of the Company, we undertook cost-saving measures, including temporary salary reductions based on level within the Company, with most team members at 5% and rising to 20% for senior managers and 50% at the top. It is true that managers may have performance-based incentive targets as part of their compensation, but obviously this component may be in *greater* jeopardy than salaries given the impact to Company performance. Finally, of course there was no inappropriate selling of stock. Terex strictly adheres to all regulatory laws and regulations. Most team members around the world understand these issues and are doing a great job supporting the Company’s efforts during COVID-19 to keep team members safe and the Company financially healthy."
Former Employee - Accounts Receivable says"Unrealistic expectations and little respect to employees"

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) says"Overall this is a company that doesn’t believe in keeping their employees employed layoffs are a certainty, Human resource is a joke and should be overhauled . As a former employee there is absolutely no job security here, no opportunity of advancement, and absolutely management cares nothing about their employees or their families."
Assembler (Former Employee) says"I've been a career land surveyor. Before I became a surveyor, I had many various jobs. I've had good jobs and not so good ones. This by far has been the worst one ever. My term for this job was brutal. My wife and I both worked there. She came from manufacturing, including supervisory positions. She's never seen a worst run company. We got fired because we were snowed in. We were actually happy about this.NonToo many to list. Just hope you don't have to go to the bathroom."
Production Specialist (Former Employee) says"It’s stressful job in my life. Manager and supervisor are very rude. Team leads didn’t help. And they give you alot of stress. I hate this job. Don’t work in Genie. They guys are sucks."
Over head Crane operator (Former Employee) says"I worked here and went through 4 supervisor's. They pick team leads that are upper management's friends. They let ppl bully other employees. And lie about everything. One of the ladies in HR also works with her husband that just walks around telling on ppl. They change their minds every second . They have on supervisor that ppl swear he's on meth . But I would rather be homeless than work there ever againNoneEverything you can think of"
Employee (Current Employee) says"The management has zero respect for the employees. They don't care about there employees. They make everyone stressed and like to upset there employees. The ballymoney site is absolute appalling has the worst attitude towards the team members and has got zero respect."
Transfer Pricing Analyst (Current Employee) says"If you are looking to grow with your colleagues, they are stuck in a different generation. Not only are you killing your brains day after day at this job but you are also having to go through what I call a power struggle for a basic hierarchical jump. Its better not to work than work for this company. Did not meet a single person who intellectually challenged me.Nice place right by Bridgewater's headquarters19th century people that are still struggling with basic excel skills"
Team Lead (Current Employee) says"Terrible and inconsistent management. The lack of better technology to do a 21st century job and terrible pay rates without any perks and or incentives for workers with high performance"
manufacturing assembler (Former Employee) says"avoid! they don't care about the staff at all, they just care about building their tacky machinery. Over worked and underpaid staff. ................................n/aworking there"
Tactical Buyer (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend working for Terex Cranes. The company is poorly managed and they closed the Waverly plant to move it to Oklahoma so they could get away from the Waverly union.NoneTerrible Management, layoffs, closed plants"
Part Puller (Former Employee) says"This place doesn't keep anyone more than 3 months if your lucky, the only way you get hired on fully is if you beg. If you are a female they sx harass youyou have job security for 3 monthsSexually Harassed, Bullied, Death Threats."
Production Operative (Former Employee) says"This company don't care about their workers. It's production at whatever cost. No care for the health and safety of their employees nor for the mental welfare of the workers. The whole factory constantly has low moral amongst the workforce and this is further antagonised by the fact that the Human Resources department is that one sided that the workforce are alienated from it. It's happy to cover up and brush issues under the carpet, it's managed badly and I'd go so far as to say corrupt to the core! I wouldn't want anyone to take a job in it unless they want to end up with mental health issues. The management couldn't care less about the little people on the shop floor. Until there is a complete overhaul of management, supervisors and human resources they will continue to run a factory riddled with bullying and victimisation of employees. There is absaloutely no worker incentive ,no time keeping bonus or no production bonus. Regardless of who you are or what you give to the company you'll easily be replaced. Avoid at all cost would be the best advice I could give.The road home!Bad relations between management and shop floor workers"
Assembler Mechanic (Current Employee) says"More than half of the people in my new employee orientation class quit after 2 weeks working there. Genie in Redmond is a very cheap place, because every things ( rubber gloves, and ect) is lock up. If you need somethings, you have to ask the supervisor to get it for you. The employee there are very lousy, they're always watching you. And the working environment at Genie is bad, you have to work very fast and hard. I had to stand on my feet for 10 hours a day. Genie in Redmond is always hiring, and they don't hire direct. You have to go through Aerotek, so don't come to Genie unless you are desperate finding work.Bad people and hard work."
Welder (Former Employee) says"management are not nice,treated really badly, rate of pay is not very good for the work they want you to do,definitely wouldn't recommend terex to anyone."
Office Based (Current Employee) says"Awful company to work for, completely disorganised, I’ve never known a company to treat its employees so badly. Virtually no training given whatsoever and the way the management speak to people is appalling, reducing members of staff to tears at times. The same attitude seems to apply at every Terex site worldwide. Couldn’t recommend it less"
Senior Field Service Technician (Former Employee) says"Terex came in and bought our company--destroyed it--then sold it to the competitor and lots of good people lost their jobs because Terex lied to the buyer about their profit numbers and customer base. There is lots of good people that work at Terex in the manufacturing portion but when it came to service they really messed it up and didn't know their pole from their hands. I can only hope that the ignorant managers that had their fingers in it are suffering more than the good people they trashed.Make you think you have a great American job.Stamp people out without warning"
Team Lead-Accounts Receivables (Former Employee) says"Horrible management, very little training, poor work life balance. I would never recommend this company as an employer to anyone. Very untrustworthy company with poor work ethic.NoneEverything"
Aftermarket Order Management Supervisor (Former Employee) says"The stars say it all. Stuck in the 1950's and I mean stuck - in more ways than one! You are sold the company at the interview, offered the job then bam! What have I done?NoneExpectations are very high"
Staff (Former Employee) says"The management and staff were nose in the air elitist. Everybody was complaining and back stabbing throughout the plant. Waverly Iowa hate the place. Mean, nasty people."
Steve Lloyd says"I recently purchased the Therme Men’s Parka. Appeared fine until deeper inspection revealed the true terrible quality of some of the features. No brand of quality outdoor weather wear would ever touch the kind of toggles used on this price coat (£550). Cheap, plastic and extremely fragile ; they are completely the opposite of the quality and hype surrounding Arc’teryx products. I was proved right the first time I tried to adjust the hood toggle. It soon slipped easily away from its own grasp and when I tried again it simply snapped free rendering it useless. I wrote an honest review of the purchase on their website but their moderators disallowed it as ‘it didn’t meet with our review guidelines’. It’s no wonder 95% of the reviews on their site are in praise of their products. Remember the price I paid? Let me inform you that this item was also made in the land of the Yulin Dogmeat Festival where there are multitudes of what are considered clothing ‘sweatshops’ and items are made very, very cheaply! Now I’m not implying that Arc’teryx utilise these methods but, it makes you think about what matters I.e. profit margins and costs of manufacture or QUALITY. I paid for quality and got cheap. I believe there are plenty of other far better brands out there that wouldn’t go near a cheap, Far East toggle! You shouldn’t either! Don’t believe the hype! Don’t be a fool like me! I didn’t even receive an apology!"
Dave Raybould says"I spend a lot of time walking and hiking and want the best clothing available. I spent £300 on a pair of Beta AR Gore-Tex trousers. In my rucksack, I carry Berghaus Paclite Gore-Tex trousers for use when the rain catches me out. I only wore the Beta trousers if the start of my walk was during heavy rain with no sign of it stopping. I wore the pants on less than ten occasions and noticed a leak on the left knee area, which progressively worsened. The trousers were not even a year old and based on the number of times I wore them; they were like new! Arc'teryx asked me to return them for investigation, but the returns process is a nightmare. Their instructions wanted me to enter a low item value to avoid customs charges, but that exposed me to a loss in transit. The return was to Switzerland! Arc'teryx suggested there had not been a previous issue, but that is not reassuring to me. I paid a premium fee and added the real value. The trousers returned several weeks later looking like a patchwork quilt! I was not happy, but what could I do? I stored the trousers and used my Berghaus. I then decided to wear the Beta trousers as it was heavy rain all day. They leaked like a sieve. My next tooth pulling exercise was contacting support again. Arc'teryx support had the audacity to describe the leaks as self-inflicted. After less than a year they failed miserably, and Arc'teryx are yet to resolve the issue! I wear items from Fjallraven, Mountain Equipment, Aku, and Berghaus, to name four. I have never known such awful customer service and will not use Arc'teryx again following this debacle."
Gwyn Griffiths says"You did not apply the discount on the product as per your 20% offer of SPRING 20. As per your email advert on the 26/07/20. NOT GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!"
Ying chen Feng says"i did not receive my products! That sucks!"
