Caterpillar management is a JOKE. Public don't have opportunity for a full time job unless you have strings or know someone. They have this process called Buddy System. The way this system works is you have great opportunity for a job or even advance in your current job if you know the right people or / person. If you don't know management then you will have more opportunity at your local McDonalds/Burger King. I am speaking for all you Caterpillar employees that have had opportunity for employment before the Buddy System has taken over. Yall should get a petition up and fight for a UNION for this company and then others as myself may have opportunity for employment and current employees may have opportunity for advancement or pay raises instead of what management wants you to have. How many are willing to fight for a more acurate and equal work place?

You have it backwards. Peoria makes the final call on the hiring now. Cat Corinth has no say so in who they hire. Back in the day, you had to know someone to get hired..now, they don't know what you look like, if you know what a wrench is, if you can tell a cam from a crank...!!!! Believe me, I see who they are hiring everyday.

Caterpillar has so many excusses of why so and so was hired its not even funny. It was job experience, it was previous work history, it was their resume. but actually it was he or she was my friend or my good ol budd. Cat has new employees that is making only 13.00 an hr verses employees hired 2 months prior is making 14.62 no is this fair. Thats what I thought

Have you ever considered maybe it's just you? I'm not sure of you job skills, but your attitude stinks. I'm an employer in the area and I would not allow you to work for me. Take this as advise check your attitude.

Doing a GOOD job at CAT is like peeing your pants in a dark suit you get a warm feeling but Upper Management does not notice.

Not all ppl that work at Cat are stuck up and ass kissers. Some ppl work hard to get where there are going or are at. For you to say you wish we would shut down is just plain stupid and senseless. It may not be the greatest place to work in the country, but you try finding a job in corinth in these times of bad economy. I appreciate every day Cat allows me to go to work and provide for my family. But of course I'm also not the kind of person to WANT to sit at home while the government takes care of me and my family. I can only wish that we keep expanding and continue to grow so it will be there till I can retire.

Ive been at cat for over 6 years and didn't kiss any ass to get to where I'm at so fuck all y'all talking shit. For Corinth area its second highest paid job next to magnolia so y'all wanna be jealous bitches keep on complaining but its not the buddy system that gets you hired hell they hardly hire anyone out there. Ever couple of years they will but takes time plus they have a ton of temps that have paid there dues and deserve the job just as much if not more for someone off the street like some of you bitching

What does thease "ton" of temps make per hour, in this high paying facility ?

What does cats sister plants pay per hour, in the north ?

Also know of four young folks that have been hired directly through cat. Not Hamilton Ryker.
Two of them, that I know of have quit. A young man, and young girl.
They got hired because one man knew the guy that does the hiring. The ironic thing is the man got his son on, and hes one of the two that quit.

Cat, my friend, is not as great as you speak. Go out on workmans comp with a hurt back, and see where you wind up.
If ones injury prone cat is the last place you wanna be. lol

But, on the other hand, its a job. Especially if you like to work seven days a week, for months.
Bull crap

My husband works at Cat. Went thru a temp agency, worked his ass off, never late, never missed a day, & after around 9 months was hired full time. He didn't know anyone around here to get the job. None of the garbage written in here is true. My husband also had an injury & was off for well over a month, & he still has his job. In fact, they sent him a get well card & the people he works with are so great they even called or came by to check on him. The people making up all these lies are probably some jerk who didn't get a job clearly because of their horrible attitudes. There is no freaking conspiracy out at Cat. It's the same as anywhere else, if you make the effort & do what you're supposed to, then you get a job. And yes, in a small town, some people will know other people at a large company like that. But it doesn't mean anything. Of course there is always going to be someone out there that wants to blame anyone & everyone EXCEPT themselves for not getting what they want from their own life. Unbelievable.
