Receptionist in Oakville, ON

Very productive and supportive team member's
I worked hard to learn as much as possible and move up until I was paid well. Managers are just salesmen who got promoted and never had experience managing people. Be a buttkisser , and you’ll go far in this company!

Be a leader, not a cheerleader.
Management is Choosing status over results. Choosing popularity over accountability. Choosing certainty over clarity. Cultures can be toxic when products never work, core values are flawed, employees are abused, etc., but the one component you typically spot first is where cheerleaders are masquerading as leaders.

Fantastic place to work
The Cat Canada team has the most committed and professional teams I have ever worked with. Starting with the HR process that works very well, very responsive and they really care about the applicant.

Inflated sense of their own importance
They don’t appreciate you as an intellectual asset. You are just a tool that is used to get them their numbers. Management is not all there. They always think someone is out there to get them.

Terrible place to work for!
Do not work here you are required to do more and more and your pay will stay the same. Management hides benefits from the employees. They always instigate others to attack a group of people or one person.
