    Very good company to work for, work hard, get the job done right and you will be successful. The company invests in its employees (training, APICS etc.) and cares about them.

    Cons

    Always consider your work-life balance. Know when to call it a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Caterpillar.

    Interview Details

    First spoke with Caterpillar at the Internship Fair at my school. Applied online for the position and was contacted about an on-campus interview that week. The process consisted of two 30 minute interviews. All of the questions were behavioral and they expect that you follow the S.T.A.R. approach.
