Corporate Responsibility

We believe social responsibility isn’t just a company value – it’s part of who we are. Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts focus on three main areas: community, environment, and economic.

We continually seek to integrate these components into every part of our business. It’s our belief that making the world’s best compact equipment isn’t enough. We must also consider the impact of our actions to our global community.


Community

We believe it’s important to invest in the communities where we work and live. That’s why we’re committed to leading our employees in charitable contributions and volunteer activities. For instance, each year we partner with nonprofit organizations as part of our Doosan Day of Community Service, where hundreds of employees volunteer in their communities.


Environment

We are minimizing the impact we have on the environment and helping our customers to do the same. Remanufacturing, recycling, greenhouse gas emissions, energy usage and waste reduction are examples of ways that we leverage technology and innovation to become more productive by using resources more efficiently. Additionally, we manufacture sustainability-minded equipment and have sponsored conservation projects, such as Create & Conserve®.

Economic

Success isn’t simply about being financially accountable. We must consider the direct and indirect economic impacts that we have on our employees, communities, suppliers and customers. We’re passionate about growing our industry through STEM (science, technology, education and math) activities that will be responsible for building the next generation of innovators.

    I have been working at Bobcat Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed office environment, with friendly co-workers. Excellent opportunities for learning (hands-on or continuing education) or moving about within the company. Good benefits and 401k for the area and industry.

    Cons

    Due to growth the hours can be long on some projects but the workload is always fair.

    Advice to Management

    While 401k and benefits are good for the area, in order to remain competitive within the industry and attract/retain talent, the 401k/benefits to employees could be increased.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bobcat Company (Gwinner, ND) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had applied for work there 5 times before and I finally had a 1/1 interview and there was really nothing complicated about it. The interviewer was at his desk and asked about what I wanted from the job and what the requirements were and then I was sent to a welder to see if I could weld 2 pieces of steel together and make it look nice. I did my weld test and it passed and I went to work 1 week later. I am still there.
