    I have been working at Komatsu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent teams, coworkers are nice, good pay, excellent benefits

    Cons

    Departments fight each other to the point of openly stealing hardware, sabotaging development efforts and spontaneously changing written agreements to suit needs

    Advice to Management

    De-integrate your internal departments. The inter-office politics are ridiculous and causing serious problems for morale.

    Purchasing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chattanooga, TN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Komatsu (Chattanooga, TN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Met with HR and Hiring Managers. HR Manager was very amiable and easy to talk to. Hiring Manager didn't seem to want a conversation but merely to ask behavioral questions. No professional/skill type questions ... only the behavioral type questions. Told I was the first candidate and their process would take 4-8 weeks. Also told an internal person was interviewing for the job as well. Based on that statement and the fact that the position was open due to internal movement, I did not expect an offer. I was told about 2 weeks later they were going with someone else.
