CPE Engineer (Current Employee), Seymour, IN – February 25, 2013
Cummins is a fantastic work environment for those who want a cheap place to live with a job that offers decent benefits and an comparable pay. Most of the management seems to be very knowledge and capable (Mine was a new foreign nation with no management experience - not the best) Most design engineers I talk to love the job. It's somewhat fast paced – more... and there is a lot of structure to it. I was a Calibration engineer and there seemed to be very little structure or methodology to it. I believe Cummins offers a lot to the right kind of individual but I would not recommend working here if you like having a social life outside of work, or intend to make a big impact on the world. – less
Sr. Developer & Technical Lead (Current Employee), Colimbuer,IN – January 30, 2013
Great place to work, great management.Cummins Distributor Business Unit has implemented many Business Intelligence (BI) Solutions. These BI solutions are source system specific and cater to the need of local users.

Pros: good starting salaries
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would be working at my usual assigned station on the assembly with my favorite co-workers. Manager shows a lot of people person skills. Lots of never ending over-time each week. It's not hard making friends with co-workers because we're constantly communicating with each other while working on the assembly line.
Sucker (Current Employee), Nashville, TN – January 16, 2013
Pros - Constant revenue stream from products like filters for diesel engines. - Tie-ups with Cummins Engine company and other component subsidiaries ensure good financial performance. - Six-Sigma training.
Cons - Has too much focus on extra curricular activities. - Not best qualified supervisors from educational background and with big egos. - HR is – more... not for employees. It is there to look for best interest of the company. - Forced performance rating. - Uses Six-Sigma extensively to the point where its becomes more of hindrance than anything. Certain procedures and "tools" are "home-cooked" and doesn't adhere to core Six-Sigma ideology. - HQ Located in the heart of Tennessee where diversity doesn't exist. - Too much out-sourcing of testing, engineering and manufacturing. – less
I do agree with many of this persons points. However, the Head Quarters are in Columbus Indiana and in my group of about 20 about 80% are foreigners and immigrants. This is similar across the entire region.
Job Work/Life Balance
Mostly rewarding as I enjoy helping people
HR Benefits Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Nashville, Tn – January 7, 2013
Pros: holidays and vacation time. retirment benefits.
Cons: high deductible on the health plans, having to talk to people who had a death happen or ones that had lost their jobs.
Some days very hectic, especially during open enrollment or when a big change happened. I had various job duties other than the customer service part of it. I enjoyed digging in to a problem and finding the way to fix it. If nothing else than to explain to the employees and retirees the best way to understand the changes and how it would benefit them. – more... I also did child support enforcement for the benefits part of it. With a court order I enrolled them in to their parents insurance. There were a lot of other job duties as 'side work' that I enjoyed doing also. Along with a benefit of some retirees of Cookeville with a benefit of a refund of their insurance premiums elsewhere when they cancelled theirs with us, they relied on me heavily to help them with anything they needed. And getting their checks to them on time every month. I enjoyed my co-workers also. And the fact of diversity in the workplace. I also enjoyed helping all of them to navigate the computer system to get what they needed to do done! Always long distance! – less
RapidServe Engineer (Current Employee), Columbus, IN – January 4, 2013
Pros: management and peers.
Cons: shift changes and working holidays.
Production based warranty call center that operates 24/7 with 6 month shift rotation. I learned about all of Cummins engines to their various applications. The hardest part of the job is changing shifts every 6 months. The most enjoyable aspect of this type of work is talking to all of the customers who call in from all over Canada and the United States. – more... The process involved in helping a technician experiencing difficulty locating the root cause of a failure to helping a dealer obtain fair labor hours for repair performed along with exceeding exceptional quality service creating a win for all involved with the Cummins experience. – less
