Temp contracts only avaliable

I enjoyed working at Caterpilla and its just a shame its hard to get a full-time job. The management and team leaders are excellent to work for. You learn new skills and are fully trained.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Not a good chance of getting a full-time job

Good place to work if your a core worker.

A typical day in Caterpillar is very demanding as everything is manufactured just in time, so working to dead lines is important. It has a lot going for the company with all the training it gives and all the health and safety courses with ( stop to fix ) ( dynamic risk assessments ) but the down side is very few contracts are ever issued to agency workers.
