Very difficult for techs in Summerville
Technician (Former Employee) –  Summerville, SCFebruary 20, 2017
Very high turnover rate. More than fast food environment. Everyone is expendable if they do not have an office. Constantly put down by Management and harassed by assistant branch manager. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time applying here. Worst Caterpillar dealership I have been associated with.
Pros
Employed.
Cons
Assistant branch manager. Excessive hours poor work conditions.

Pros
Talented business co-workers
Cons
Limited opportunities to move up.

This company does not care about the employees
Power Generation Technician (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCOctober 31, 2014
Management does not care about the people making this company money. There is little to no training on the wide range of equipment you are expected to work on in the field. Technical support for field techs working is very little if you can reach them. Sent out on jobs with wrong parts on a regular basis. The company would not allow technicians to stock trucks with basic supplies to do jobs, everything had to be billed to customers workorders. Overall this is not a company to work for until they replace management
Pros
at least you have a job
Cons
low pay, bad benefits, low morale
