Decent pay, Decent benefits terrible work culture. It is a closed union shop and the union and co. are in a constant battle so the work culture is very stressful.

You never know why you are doing the job you are doing.

Upper management applies a lot of pressure on lower management. So that lower management will apply a lot of pressure on the hourly workers.And you will rarely have the materials or support you need to be successful.

Pros

Good pay

Company First - All Else Second

An important thing to remember, is that in all matters, the well being Caterpillar comes first. Many hour cuts and policy changes make hardships for employees, and are aimed at saving money, which Caterpillar is very fond of keeping for itself. One year can be 70+hrs/week, the next 40hrs without a taste of overtime.

Horrid management stay away!!!

This company is way too top heavy. Too many managers with nothing better to do than make up new rules daily and crucify anyone who steps out of line. Every blue collar worker is micromanaged to death because the lack of workers vs managers.

Pros

Local

Cons

Over managed

Disorganized

A lot of disorganized over/micro managing. They pay way to many people to manage the people who do the real work around the plant. Not all of them are bad some of the people are really good at the work that needs to be done on a day to day basis.

Temp position

I worked during the strike of 1995. The fulltime employees are greedy union employees who will probably end up losing their jobs because the company will go under or move to china.

Good Benefits, Great Fellow Employees

Company is pretty wonderful to work for in regards to pay and benefits. Work schedule is hectic and unpredictable, but this is common in manufacturing. Obtained a great deal of on-the-job training, and gained a good bit of knowledge about the product(s) manufactured.

Pros

Benefits, Pay, Knowledge Obtained

Cons

Work Schedule is Demanding and Unpredictable

Interesting job

Hard work but fun . Worked with a good group of workers. I did not have any benefits but the pay was ok. Layoffs happen a lot.

I came to Caterpillar thinking its a big company and there would be job security. I started off at Mosville and the management didn't do there job

Day starts with a meeting on what needs to be finished an what need to get out. I have learned a lot about hydraulics, ordering parts, team work. All the management can depend on me to do what they ask of me and more. I work very well with others love being part of a team and also am able to be left alone and get the job done. The hardest part is waiting on parts that is out of your control. The most enjoyable part is taking something that does not work and making it work better then expected.

Pros

New things to work on and learn

Cons

job security

The best part of the job is the people I work with, the hardest is the daily commute.

A typical day includes diagnosing and repairing CNC machines.

Pros
