Lay offs

Great company, poor severance. Lay offs are expected and people get let go and then brought back repeatedly. Many people no matter how long they hand been there believe their job is in jeopardy.

Has Potential

I worked their for 18.5 years but a better opportunity came available for me and I took another job with a different employer and it was one of the beat decision I made. Not a bad company to work for but they could train their managers better on how to treat their employees.

Caterpillar

Caterpillar was a very good company but they did not have any work life balance in management you are expected to work up to 7 days a week with no compensation for overtime.

Was supposed to be temp to hire but Cat never hires

Made 10.50 a hour but did the same job as permanent employees that made 19.00 a hour. Poor management, no team work work starts at 6:00 am but you have to be at work ten minutes early

Great people to work with also

Investigated and identified RCCA internal and external defects. Provided permanent resolutions for these defects. Teamed with Planning, Engineering, and other management members to implement these resolutions. Communicated and worked closely with Supervisors, Team Leaders, and OTM's to ensure a quality product. Investigated Warranty Claims. Did cycle counts and work with SAP and Red Perry system in shipping and receiving

Nice workplace

Didn't appreciate how the on site temp supervisor lied on me and the way her attitude was towards me. The workplace was nice and the supervisors were easy going and the environment was nice.

Its a challenge,

Caterpillar has been very good to me, I came through as a agency employee after searching the job market for months just to be told I was over qualified for everything I applied for. After a few short months of proving myself I was hired on permanent employee, Its been one year since I was hired on, Been recognized multiple times by team members, Management and higher end corp such as the plant manager. I went from knowing nothing about tools, to building multi million dollar equipment. Take alot of pride in my work, I am in line for a team lead/trainer. A great place to learn a new trade, highly recommend to all

Pros

Mon-Thurs Schedule, Great Life Work Balance

Cons

Turnover Rate Of Agency Employees, Constant Revolving Door.

Caterpillar will fire temps for no reason.

Intrview is long and drawn out. The work will replace most of your life. It is hot and fast paced. The pay is not fair and they will allow permanent hires to bully temps, then fire you if you say anything. The supervisor for the main line will also refuse to file and/or simply disregard complaints to avoid having to deal with HR.

Typical assembly line work

I worked there for 9 years and had no plans of leaving. They have decent benefits. I worked at the Perkins facility in Griffin. On-site training, so no true experience is really needed. Just a typical assembly line environment.
