Intern (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 18, 2018
I worked with a relatively small group, but it was dense with talented individuals that were very enthusiastic about helping me during my internship. My manager was amazing and constantly tried to get me more involved in the company and to give me more face-time with upper management.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 8, 2018
Working at komatsu for about a year and it is okay. It is a pit stop for a better career down the road. Internal proceidres are clunky and overwhelming. Not good with their finances or employee structure. Needs improvement

A typical work day consist of 4 to 7 wheel loaders being built in 10 to 12 hours. Learn how to build heavy equipment with great people. The work place culture is safety first always. The hardest part of the job was trying to get production with out the parts to build.

The only way to survive the Komatsu culture is to become the boss's favorite or friend. There is a lot of favoritism from lower management to upper management. It does not matter how good you are at your job or how many hours you donate (everyone is on salary) you will not be able to advance if you are not a "favorite" of the boss.
You are never allowed to disagree with management. After over ten years of being a Komatsu employee I was forced to make a choice of being fired or retire. I chose an early retirement. After I chose retirement they had to hire two employees to replace me.
Different work standards for employees, There are "Komatsu Elite and Komatsu Non-Elite" employees, Almost everyone is on salary. The "Non-Elite" are requred to donate their time without compensation.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Ripley, TN – September 13, 2017
I enjoyed working at komatsu although it was stressful at times but I take my job seriously and do the best I can possibly do. I've always went above and beyond of what I was required to do. The managers were great and the environment was awesome. I learned a lot about computers in my 23 years there. The opportunity came available for retiring and I took advantage of it. I really miss komatsu and at times I wish I had stayed. The employees were like my family.
