Great Job

I worked at Holt CAT

ProsHolt is the place to work in Texas. They have great values and stretch all the way across Texas. I worked in Austin, Fort Worth, and Corpus Christi. A good place to move up and work hard. Just had a bunch of layoffs recently, but should be hiring people real soon.

ConsI quit because of conflict with other employees. Because a lot of management was laid off, there was no one to handle the work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementDont hire managers that aren't qualified

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Job

Buyer1 (Former Employee)
Corpus Christi, TX

I worked at Holt CAT

ProsVery giving owner...generous with the benefits. Company very supportive of many causes. Great people to work with. Offer many classes that are taught on site to by Holt Developmental Services.

ConsManagement runs the company into the ground with over spending, therefore many have been laid off. Men tend to be threatened by Women who work there if they know a little more than they do. Filthy language from certain managers and supervisors and if you report it to HR you might as well plain on not being there much longer.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf I thought Peter Holt actually knew of the behavior of some of his management & supervisors I would probably be very disappointed, but I feel that he probably doesn't. With that being said...I think a majority of management needs to suck it up and realize they are no better than the rest of the employees and give them some credit where credit is due for once.

Holt Cat review

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Holt CAT

ProsCompany pays good wages and has decent benefits.

ConsThey seem to favor original Holt employees over the original Darr employess. Darr management treated everyone much better than the Holt managment team does.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more respect for your employees.
