Opening e-mails, processing and reconciliations. I learned how to process foreign invoices for capital expenditure Management was fair Workplace culture Flexible Hardest part of the position was resolving conflict To get recognition for work done
Busy, productive and fun day at the office, you are trained and given space into applying changes to your job as long as it benefits the company and also improves your contributions.
free lunches when you hit records
long hours and overtime
Days at work are short because there is just so much to do for 8 hours. I discovered that I have excellent planning skills through this job as well as managing a large number of people and it also helped in boosting my communication skills. Fantastic work culture especially when it comes to safety of people. Recognition is the hardest and appreciation. Achieving projects before given deadline.
Free Lunches on certain milestones
I worked as a filing clerk. I learned how sort mails, attend to all the inquiries from different customer, and knowing different types of filing and documents. The management was very good. The workplace culture was good. It is a structured environment with different race. The hardest part of the job was to work hard for a lesser salary which was from a hand to mouth. The most enjoyable part of the job was working under finance department and be exposed to different financial documents that I only knew from school.
Free tea anytime

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Caterpillar?
AS it was a long time ago when I worked for Caterpillar a lot would have changed since then but overall it was a good company to work for and my colleagues were also good people that got along with each other and myself with ease
Morning or evening meeting before starting, learned all about fabrications and welding. Manager was a nice person, he always made you feel needed and had time for any query one had. Good team of inspectors but had its ups and downs, resolved one on one. Hardest part of the job worked night shift and missed my daughters first words and steps, no regrets though. Always finished the relevant paper work for the shift I was on.
Enjoyed the job
The company closed down
The work was very repetitive and automated - i became bored. The first few months were interesting. My co-workers were very pleasant and helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job was setting up the flame spectrophotometers in the morning - it was a very specific skill set and if anything went wrong there was a possibility of blowing up the laboratory!!!!!
A day at work was fun, enjoyed going to work and planning the day ahead.I learned how to be a leader and to lead a team and when to follow. Management thought me how to work under pressure very well. What I liked about the co-workers is that they worked towards the same goal and promoted recognition. The hardest part of the job trying to complete the workload when associates were not at work. The most enjoyable part was working towards an objective.
Being recognised for good work
