I worked at Caterpillar part-time (More than a year)
Great benefits and insurance. Salary is better than most other companies in the surrounding Peoria area. Promotes growth of employees from within.
Lay-offs. When employees are up for salary review, sometimes supervisors hault an employee's ability to move up the sliding scale of their pay grade because of internal politics. They don't always value an employee's experience within the company when said former employee returns to the company and feel comfortable underpaying them and or not utilizing advancement/growth opportunities.
Advice to Management
New supervisors need to have better mentorship/coaching opportunities from upper management.

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Caterpillar (Morton, IL) in February 2009.
Initial interview was conducted on college campus (30 minutes). I passed that process and was invited in-house to interview. The in-house process was 3 separate 1 hour interviews with 3 different interviewers. I had not been gone from the Caterpillar office but 1 hour, when I got a phone call from the recruiter with a verbal offer. The written offer showed up in my inbox the next day.
I didn't negotiate. I accepted the offer as I was really excited about working at Caterpillar.
