Overall good place to work, enjoy coworkers and supervisors

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Enjoy my job on the floor welding, good supervisors (most) don’t understand how newer HR can never be onsite to work, hard to communicate to her, easier to connect with the other one.

Tigercat is a rewarding place to work with a good work life balance

If you're the type of person who learns fast and likes to be part of a supportive team Tigercat is a great place to work.Different production and engineering groups are segmented and siloed, and could benefit from tighter integration. efforts to standardize practices across groups are making progress.

Pros

Supportive work environment, good life balance

Cons

Production and Engineering groups can get out of sync sometimes

Expect to know your job 100% with 70% training

Just as the title says. You will NOT receive enough training before they leave you on your own.Then they keep track of your mistakes by posting them on a board above your personal work station. Then they will use these numbers against you when it comes time for a raise.Dental is goodVision is a jokePay is somewhat fair

Pros

You work the same shift consistently

Cons

Poor management, poor tracking of training practices and proper allowment to learn the job properly.

Good place to work

Lots of opportunity here for people who want to work. Could be better organized. Pay is competitive based on skill level, attitude, attendance, etc. Facility is excellent.

Not a stressful job. supervisor easy to get along with. and management is fair

One of the best companies I’ve worked for. Raises every six months. Great benefits. Profit sharing. Three weeks vacation to start. Lots of room for advancement. The owner is very generous with Christmas parties for the kids and adult Christmas party which is I was great. I’ve been there 11 years and I have nothing bad to say about it

Management needs a major improvement, and employees deserve more respect.

My time at Tigercat started out well, and I was proud to tell people I worked there. Over time, I noticed the favouritism, clouded judgment, and lack of respect coming from upper management/HR towards employees. At previous companies, and in all of my positions, I have only ever been known as a dedicated employee who goes above and beyond when it comes to my roles. I’m optimistic, regularly beat job times, and maintain great relationships with colleagues. It is not the norm for me to dislike my job, but I found myself leaving on a Friday already dreading having to return on the following Monday, waking up for work was a constant struggle. After some thought and consideration, I can tie it to the above statements about upper management and HR. The company has defined policies in most areas, but they are only followed when it best suits the company. Decisions are often made by doing what is easiest, not what is ethical or consistent with past decisions. As a Supervisor, you are micromanaged by upper management, making it clear that they do not trust their team to perform their duties and responsibilities. There is a huge lack of transparency in addition to a lack of communication. Frequently team members were laid off, terminated or moved to a different department without their direct Supervisor having any notice at all. We found out the day it was happening or at times, when we received text messages after the fact from confused employees about the decision. Over a two-year period, the Woodstock location had five different HR reps, substantially adding to the inconsistency - 

Pros

good pay, great benefits

Cons

long hours, poor management, decreased morale

Excellent company with unlimited potential.

I worked there a long time ago and at that time they offered good pay, good benefits and just an overall great place to work. If your willing to work hard you will get recognized and rewarded for your efforts. From what I hear they still offer the same. This is a family owned business that values its employees.

Pros

pay, benefits, pension plan, family time is priority

Don't go work chassis

Good place to start or retire I wouldn't want to spend my whole life here. Don't learn much other then MCAW and you fit with fixtures and jigs so pretty easy after awhile

Pros

Easy work

Cons

Management
Was this review helpful?

Horrible management and favouritism

By far the most unjust place I’ve ever worked. No skill needed as long as your a yes man and don’t stir the pot you will fit right in any issues come up better keep them too your self for fear of losing your job. All work performance and raises are based off how buddy buddy you are with your supervisor not your work ethic or skill at all save your self the headache this company preaches they are all about the workers but that’s the farthest thing from the truth.

Pros

Ok pay

Cons

Supervisors clueless and unfair.

Used to be a great company.

Company got too big too fast. Strict tact times now make it a poor work environment. Managers have no idea how to motivate employees they just want numbers. The company has no problem pushing aside senior employees to get cheaper new employees to work .

Pros

Talk a great game

Cons

It’s all BS

Good place to work

Good place to work and climb the raise ladder was easy, at least for me. No rushing and or management hovering over you. That only happens when you are not doing the job at hand. Pay was better than average
