I have been working at Bobcat full-time (More than 8 years)
Great company to work for. Genuinely seems to care about the employees Pay started off a little low but definitely seems to be fair now. Work atmosphere is fantastic.
It's located in Gwinner, ND. A few members of upper management seem to have their own agenda and have some crazy ideas. We spent years trying to engineer the human element out of the process and now they want to add it back in.
Advice to Management
Stop sending us the direction we are headed. A lot of the policy changes are things that were tried years ago, but our new leader seems to forget that and wants to send us back to the stone age. The running joke is we are being told to be "world class" but are only being given a hammer and chisel to do it. Things seem to be headed in a downward direction because certain people wont concede on their ideas and won't make exceptions where they are needed. Running out of a part that is used daily because you want to have JIT delivery is a joke, especially when the parts are small and take up very little storage space. But we are being held to 1 day OHQ no matter what. certain exceptions should apply. Having a VP that comes in and tries to change everything and send us back to trying things we tried 5 years ago is such a bad idea. When everyone from the director level down listens to him just to humor him because they don't respect him, there's a serious issue

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bobcat (Fargo, ND) in May 2015.
Quick response and made you feel comfortable. There wasn't a lot of prep work but definitely know about the company because I don't think that they would hire you if you didn't because that looks really bad and as if you didn't really care about getting the job.
