Avoid the las vegas branch
Not sure (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVFebruary 6, 2017
No regard for safety, favoritism, bullying, horrible communication, lies,backstabbing, i doubt these problems exist at other branches, great product however.
Pros
Quality of product
Cons
General work environment is very negative, safety equipment and training is only offered to favorite techs, no employee handbook, messy shop full of broken shop equipment with poor lighting, seen one tech get a promotion but no raise.

Outstanding Company
Procurement Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJanuary 18, 2017
I absolutely love my job at Komatsu and am not looking to relocate or move to another company. The management team is very upstanding and my coworkers are some of my best friends. While you could make more money elsewhere in the Chattanooga area, the environment keeps me here.
Pros
Great coworkers and great company
Cons
None in my book

Purchasing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Novi, MIJanuary 4, 2017
moneys okay could be better, but not as bad as some places. its all about what you are trying to do broker a deal in your initial offer that will carry you over for years due to lack of adequate raises

It was a good job but wanted more chances to move up in the work place! The co-workers where great but some of the management was not. But it was a good place for the most part.

Scheduling is hectic on home life
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Elko, NVNovember 18, 2016
Komatsu is a good company. You must be willing to travel 75% of the time. The pay is good and benefits are decent. Scheduling and travel can tend to be hard on the home life.

Great place to work
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Elko, NVMarch 18, 2016
Really liked my job and the pay, the downside was where it was located. Elko Nevada is in the middle of nowhere and has atrocious weather, extremely cold winter temps dipping into wind chills of -30's. Komatsu was great to work for, with no complaints from me whatsoever. I had an opportunity to go to a company in Miami and leave the cold weather is the only reason I left.
Pros
Was left alone to do my job.
Cons
The weather.

Field Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Elko, NVMarch 1, 2016

Pros
when off, you are for 4 days
Cons
you are away for a minimum of15 - 25 days at a time under strick rules.

Rebuild Quote Clerk/Warranty (Current Employee) –  West Valley City, UTDecember 28, 2015
Start the day off with Safety meetings and morning stretches to get the body ready.
Co workers are great to work with.
Hardest part would be when the mechanics do not submit all documents needed for jobs.
Environment is relaxed and fun.
Pros
Friendly Co workers

more communicaton

Good company but bad supervisors and lower managment
Shop Technician (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTOctober 30, 2015
The shop supervisor doesn't know how to quote jobs and then gets angry with the techs when they have to take longer. He is a welder and has no clue how to supervise mechanics. They ignore employee complaints and do not thoroughly investigate allegations.
Pros
they have a good vending service and do have free meals when safety standards are met
Cons
only 30 min lunch and bad supervision

Product & Good Working Atmosphere
Senior Product Manager (Current Employee) –  Rolling Meadows, ILSeptember 1, 2015
A typical day at work is started off by going over emails, resolving customer issues & questions. This could be followed up with meetings with management. Then it's off to creating new Marketing Programs to help distribution sell more product.

Management lets you do your job, co-workers are friendly
Pros
Traveling
