horrible place to work
field (Former Employee) –  Gillette, WYJuly 1, 2017
Would not recommend working at this company. Horrible work environment where the management truly does not care about it's people or for that fact the company. Management loves to play games and pit their workers against each...and think its funny! Safety at wyoming machinery is a joke as well...they preach about it but when it comes to it at the job it goes right out the window, seen quite a few injuries while i was there. They only care about keeping their friends working. Even when these people actually make them lose clients and work. About the only good thing I can say is they have good health benefits. They are just floating on the CAT name and have lost all their talented workers (especially in the mining division). There are all these mines in the powder river basin and none of them like to use them anymore if that tells you anything. They are the most expensive to call out and their quality of work is horrible. In short ....dont go to work here, it is not what it use to be!
Pros
health benefits

Not a great place to work!
Service Writer/Technician (Former Employee) –  Casper, WYMarch 2, 2017
If you are a woman you will not advance in this company. They only keep the one's that are pretty and they do not advance them either. This is the good ol' boy system at play here.

Feast or famine!!!!
Gas field service tech (Former Employee) –  Gillette, WYFebruary 16, 2017
Good place to make some decent money if you want to go to the same contract site everyday. There are too many people in management that walk around with their nose in the air!!! Not to mention when work gets slow they place you mandatory 4 hour days until you quit. A lay off would look bad for the company. I have been through 2 of these 4 hour day cycles and I finally had enough of it.
Pros
Beautiful building and inventory
Cons
Feast or famine

Horrible management and the way they treat their employees
Welder/mechanic (Former Employee) –  Gillette, WYDecember 21, 2016
Terrible place to work. Management treats their workers terribly, and even brag about in meetings. Only thing good is the benefits, but totally wasn't worth it for me. You go home angry and frustrated everyday...and they actually encourage the supervisors to treat their employees this way. Overall just a miserable place to work.

Management are not the ones in charge.
Technician (Former Employee) –  TbccMay 26, 2016
I spent 6 years working for them at one of the mine contract sites.It did not take o notice the fact that management are not the ones in charge. There are certain individuals throughout the company who reach the level of untouchable. And these people are the ones running the company. And should you confront one of these people with they're lack of knowledge about your job which they have been unofficially been out in charge of. They will run to management and you end up labeled as not being a team player. While there certain individuals may not be in charge of you or anyone else technically how you deal with these individuals will have a huge impact on your career. And management will promise you the moon and stars and then find a million excuses why they couldn't make it work out for you. The time off is the only perk to working for this company.
Pros
Time off and benifits
Cons
Poor managment and the people really running the show

Never underestimate your opponents!
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Casper, WYOctober 22, 2015
Nothing is as it appears. Once there is blood in the water the sharks begin to feed. There are different rules for different people. There is a lack of loyalty that is unlike I have ever seen. Those who appear to be on your side of the fence are eating from the other side. Think before you speak, it will be spoken again and again and will lose or gain words along the way. What is being said to you, is being said about you.

Great pay and Benefits, poor leadership at every level
Warehouse Technician (Former Employee) –  Gillette, WyAugust 31, 2015
This company offers excellent pay and benefits, however there is a culture of once you've been there about five years you are no longer required to work hard. Management lies to employees about future prospects of shift changes, only telling you what you want to hear to get you out of their office. There is also a major issue of double standards there. If you are friends with the big boss then you can do whatever you want, including getting hurt at work, with zero disciplinary action. If not, then you will be unhappy until they fire you or you quit.

Direct management at warehouse level in Gillette has zero experience in leading a team. Lies to employees regularly to avoid confrontation.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Poor leadership

Administrative (Current Employee) –  Gillette, WYNovember 17, 2014
Worked with a variety of people daily. Company works hard to stay competitive in Wyoming. Areas that need to be addressed are addressed most of the time. There are a few things that are beyond the control of management to fix.
Pros
Benefits, people, culture
Cons
Politics
