I have been working at Caterpillar as an internRecommendsApproves of CEORecommendsApproves of CEO
Caterpillar has a great culture, everybody there is a giant family. The work life balance seems great based on conversations with all the full-time people.
There is not a whole lot to do in the Peoria area (where they have their headquarters) and taxes are not the best in Illinois (so nothing against the company, just the location).
Advice to Management
There are a lot of employees here that don't seem to be doing anything, I would advise management to cut loose the slack.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Caterpillar (Peoria, IL).
The interview will be completed by three current employees. Usually one is your boss, a fellow coworker and another manager that reports to the same general manager as your boss. The questions follow the SMART format, situation, measurable action, results and time. Each individual rates your score basically from a 1-5. After the interview, they make a consensus to determine what your overall score should be. Best overall score would either be offered the job or the top candidates might go through a second round interview.
