Site Manager (Former Employee) – West Valley City, UT – July 16, 2018
I worked for Komatsu for many years and enjoyed my time there. I started in an entry-level position and I was quickly promoted to management positions. The culture is strong and there is definitely room to grow from local positions up through the manufacturer at various worldwide locations.
Very flexible allowing the people an opportunity to succeed.
Assistant Parts Administration Manager (Former Employee) – Vernon Hills, IL – July 9, 2018
Managed a 65,000 sq. ft. DC. Worked on developing a new inventory control program for the DC. Learned about warehouse capacities and new processes to gain return on investments. The people are treated with respect and encouraged to advance. The hardest part of the job was the slow process in capital expense improvements purchases. The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to manage your operation
Great place to develop a career. Had the ability to mentor my staff and allow them to grow within my organization. Ability to travel and develop my team with visits to manufacturing facilities and take them on overseas saales assignments to develop in front of customer base.
can't plan anything with family life due to being forced in all the time
Mechanical (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – June 14, 2018
Overworked with poor management. you get forced in all the time on every weekend if there is no volunteers, which a lot of people have families dont volunteer on Sundays. But at that point you get forced in..
The company was a union environment sometimes not as easy to manage
Maintenance Supervisor/Planner Scheduler (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 24, 2018
The company was a good place to work, the environment was sometimes rather difficult to manage, due to the relationship between the company and the union, rather long tenure employees and rather set in their ways, not always open to change, but overall a good place to work.
ICT Department (Current Employee) – Rolling Meadows, IL – May 10, 2018
Komatsu provides an average work environment, but no opportunities for growth. There is no cross training and if you ask for more advanced tasks, you are told stick to what your current position entails, or that there are other people doing that. If you're looking for a place to go where you are stable in the position you're in and don't want to go any higher, then Komatsu is a good fit.
Free gym membership, employee discount programs, some of the people
Lazy and inefficient management in all departments, no growth opportunities, cross departmental cooperation
Field Service Stamping Press Division (Former Employee) – Rolling Meadows, IL – April 25, 2018
Understaffed to accommodate customer base with little effort seen to correct this problem. Support from parent company mediocre and most replies provided small amounts of information to reach the engineering goals for any customer.
