i work as a tugboat engineer.
work on detroits at the moment, cats are going in our boats in 1.5-2 years.

some companies work equal time as well.
plus the pay is considerably higher than land jobs.

|massbadass||thats good, i am getting antsy but im still stuck for now. I was thinking either engine tech or shop tech, I am not ruling out field service but i did it for the retail petroleum industry and it can be very demanding on your time.|

|WormDrowner||Well, keep your butt safe over there and let me know when you get home. I'll see if I can find specific information for you when you pick a spot.|

Ohio is a union state, so the rates would be different from Oklahoma. Your best bet would be to talk to someone at Warren CAT, the dealer for Oklahoma & West Texas.

|massbadass||Cool, so how much can one expect to make being say a field service tech, or truck engine tech/shop tech.|

The Think Big program will train you for a technician position at a CAT dealer. As each dealer is a separate business, you will find that every one is different. My father worked for 3 dealers, Ohio CAT, Alban CAT & finally retiring from Mustang CAT. He was a Field Service Technician for over 40+ years. Some dealers were better than others. Ohio CAT is a union shop, while Alban & Mustang aren't.
I moved to Ohio from Texas a few years back and have been working as a Financial Analyst for Ohio CAT. They have been one of the best employers I have worked for. It's just too bad that they are in Ohio, as I really want to go back home to Texas!

Does anybody here work for CAT?
I was just curious if anybody here worked for Caterpillar and could tell me if they like their job. I was thinking of enrolling in the ThinkBIG program they have. Also what is the pay like? Any info i can acquire will be a great help.
