detail booth (Former Employee) – Booneville, MS – May 16, 2016
A typical day at CAT was going to work getting my suit on and getting in my detail booth. It was a very safe place to work and very professional. I learned a hard work ethic and how to work in a nice pace but safe at the same time.
Manager Rule with retaliation, fear, and bullying tactics
Mechanic (Current Employee) – Corona CA – June 16, 2015
I have been here less than year. I was happy to get the job, but now I see it was a bad choice. This place needs a union because they don’t care for their people even when they break their back for this place. They don’t care for safety. I feel shame that I can’t really fix things cause we can’t buy what we need. It makes me look bad and I get angry a lot about the bad work I am forced to do. They never even trained me and I am trying to fix stuff when it is running cause they won’t stop the lines. I am trying to get out of here. I don’t think it is safe and I know there is a lot of mind games where they try to turn us on each other so we can be safe from the cut. They have these meetings where we can talk about issues, but the main cause of the problems does all the talking to stop us from telling the truth. If we do talk you can expect retaliation from change of your hours or your parts not getting approved. From what I can tell this company likes to keep control over the crew and wants managers to rule with retaliation, fear, and bullying tactics. They tell us they want engagement, but they hire these vendors to do our work and I think there is an incentive for the main guy cause the quality of the work does not reflect the costs. We could do the work better! The main guy won't let any of us do what we are good at, he just wants to control us to make himself look good.
Supply Analyst (Current Employee) – Corinth, MS – March 28, 2015
I come in get my computer going and go through any emails that came through the night before looking for urgent ones to address first. I typically have meetings the first part of the day with suppliers to help them to overcome any issues they may be having with getting me the parts I have on order. The remainder of the day I spend working inventory where we may have too much of one part I need to try to get rid of some I have others we do not have enough of and I have to get with suppliers to see what we can do to get more in. I also manage our automatic order system that has about 6,000 parts on it as well.
Great working environment, great teams
Cat does not hire permanent outside of Cat for my position, I am temporary and while my job is here as long as I want it, I do not have the benefits or pay I would as a permanent worker.
Working outside for 12 hours a day or night is not just for everyone. No true shelter to get you out of bad weather. A lot of working alone in Railroad cars, must be able to trust your co-workers. Pay too low for the work that is done.
got to drive new cars and trucks
low pay, work in all weather, dangerous working in the railroad cars
I loved working with all the people that I worked with,they showed me alot

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Hasbrouck Heights, NJ – May 20, 2013
Typical day at work was getting in touch of decision makers of companies and scheduling meetings with them to further discuss how we can help them... I learned a lot from this job and most importantly learned the art of dialing away and handling objections.. I really liked the atmosphere of the office and how nice and close the employees were..
Fabrication Specialist (Current Employee) – Peoria, IL – October 8, 2012
I assumed there would be no one my age, but have found several people both times I've been hired. The only problem I have with CAT (Building LL, in particular) is that the management is highly dependent on the managers, which forces you to look past any of the possible faults and shortcomings your section manager may have. Other than that, it's a very good place to advance and gain experience.
CAT Federal Professional Sales & International Marketing Instructor
Professional Sales & Marketing Instructor (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 15, 2012
* High School College Accredited teacher * Public School System in lower economically developed areas is difficult to receive resource to reach the students with * Administration extorted my federal funding * I found it difficult to acclimate to the environment being white * My students. I recently received a phone call from a student that was originally from a refugee camp in Africa. He has suffered severe physical injuries b/c of the wars and lack of medical attention in the camps. I would stay late with him every evening helping with his English, though I was not an English teacher by any means, and help him write scholarship essays. Night after night we would write. He rode public transit to the actual school bus stop everyday, so at night I would drive him home to his small apartment where his family lived. When he called, he told me he was currently enrolled in medical school and planned on completing his residency here in the states, then go back to Nigeria to practice medicine. That was worth everything the administration had put me through.
