Mission: We are guided, not by day to day existence, but by a vision of where we want to be. Our perspective is to take the time to look forward and backward, to take stock of where we are, evaluate where we are going and determine how we are going to get there.
Warren CAT is extremely family oriented. They truly care about each employee, and work hard to make day to day work pleasurable. When making decisions, they keep everyone's best interest in mind.
The only con is that we are somewhat dependent on the oil and gas industry, but with our recent diversification, this is changing.
Advice to Management
My only advice would be to let employees know ahead of time when something major is changing, or when something is coming up.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Warren CAT.
Applied online and was contacted within a week. Meet with future supervisor and he asked basic questions concerning background, experience, where did I see myself in 5 years and describe yourself in 3 words. Additionally, there was a mechanical aptitude test called a "Can Test". It consisted of a component that is disassembled laying on a table. You are required to put it together with a diagram breakdown. You do this test twice, with the expectation your time will be cut in half on the second time. Most people can do this test in under 15 minutes on the first round. If you fail to complete it in a timely manner, hiring potential is questionable.
I was new to civilian employment, and misjudged what I should be making. I low balled myself and they gave three thousand more than I asked for. I jumped at it thinking it was a good deal; however, I was mistaken.
