Electronic/Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) says"In the begging it was a good place to work. Then the magment kept changing. One hand didn't know what the other one was doing. The younger generation didn't respect the people that had been there for years and knew how the process worked. They would tell us to shut up and do it there way. That is why I left the company."
Assist other (Former Employee) says"expected to work hard for little pay and no appreciation. The management was very bad and showed high favoritism. Working hard did not count for anything. Cons: not enough help no appreciation for the work done"
Customer Service (Former Employee) says"This was a great place to work there was room for growth here and if they had not have moved to Mexico I would hope that I would have retired there."
Powder Coat (Current Employee) says"A typical day at work is extremely boring. Hours and hours of downtime with management watching SUX! Be careful about talking to coworkers, the Lead is right around the corner listening for dirt to give too his boss."
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) says"The actually daily jobs are great and pretty straight forward. Learned how to set-up warranty claims, Install and trouble shoot locks over the phone. Learned how to handle customers of all types and from all walks of life."
Material Handler (Former Employee) says"A typical day at Schlage was getting the line ready to run. I learned that if I didn't do my job the line didn't run. Management sayed out the way as long as you did your job. My co-workers was a group of ladies that worked on the line that kept me in good spirits all day. The hardest part of the job was getting parts on the line from staging to keep the line running and not shutting down. The most enjoyable part of the job was that my supervisor knew how hard I worked to keep the line running."
Sr. Equipment Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says"Schlage Lock makes some of the best locks on the market. They have been on the verge of trying to close down the operation in Colorado Springs for quite some time to move manufacturing overseas. Cons: tough working environment"
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed the hands on learning experience assembling locks."
Order Management Manager (Former Employee) says"Allegion holds great values as a company offers good payment and benefits. It is a good relaxed atmosphere depending on the work performed. Competiveness and fast paced is what I would consider to be required at times, sense of wonership and accountability. Customer first. I had a great time with management overall, enjoyed working with several of my peers ... would love to work with them again. Cons: Accountability & commitment to true improvement on certain areas"
