I have been working at CAT Financial full-time (less than a year)Pros
Cat Financial is an incredible company that truly promotes cohesion & engagement. At Cat Financial, I am given the resources and the support to do the job that I was hired to do.Cons
Honestly, I don’t really have anything negative to say about Cat Financial. We have a lot of employees that come straight from college and they don’t always have another company to compare Cat, too. Unlike them, I have worked for other companies and the culture, the workload and the people here are amazing.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Cat Financial has strong leadership. The President & CEO of Cat Financial is very visible and engaged with all processes at Cat Financial. He strives to know all of the employees by name and he takes a genuine interest to know more about them. Also, my direct supervisor is wonderful to work for; she is not a micro-manager, but someone who truly motivates and encourages me. I definitely believe from my experiences working with our leaders, that Cat truly knows how to hire, train & develop strong leaders.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at CAT Financial in June 2014.Interview Details
Interview was scheduled from 7:45 to 2:30. First I was asked to present my resume to a panel of managers. Then I had 3 one-hour interviews with the Hiring Manager, the Controller, and another financial manager. Lunch was in between those interviews. Finally. A 30 minute mtg with HR to review benefits and sign a consent for background check.
The interviews were all behavioral-type questions, so it was difficult to fully explain my skills and what I have to offer. They were more concerned with "how did you handle a problem where you didn't have the time to do a good job" versus "can you manage a team of 6?" or "can you consolidate multiple international financial statements?" etc.
Each of the 3 interviewers asked basically the same questions.
In my opinion, behavioral interviews will not identify who is the best candidate for all jobs. (Accounting candidates are often introverted and uncomfortable with these types of questions!)
Everyone was super nice and friendly. This is a great company, so I was disappointed to not get an offer. I was not expecting much up front, but after you see the building and offices and all the amenities & great people, you see what a great place this would be to work.No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
