Caterpillar Jobs

Caterpillar Job Overview

Caterpillar Inc. designs and manufactures machinery and engines for construction and mining. Their equipment is nicknamed "CAT," and it's the industry standard for construction and demolition projects. People interested in high-paying construction jobs need Caterpillar experience. Operating these machines is much more complicated than directing traffic and other common construction jobs. Heavy Construction Equipment Operators are essential in all types of construction and demolition projects, making caterpillar jobs an important career choice.

Some common Caterpillar jobs include:
  • Dump Truck Driver
  • Demolition Crane and Excavation Operator
  • Bulldozer Operator
  • Asphalt Paver Operator
  • Backhoe Loader Operator
  • Rotary and Track Drill Operator
While the company's main focus is on construction, they also offer jobs in sales, finance, marketing, production and education.

Caterpillar Job Education Requirements

Caterpillar machine operators must complete certification before going through on-the-job training. Caterpillar Inc. offers affordable online CAT training through their Caterpillar University. There are courses for each type of CAT machine, as well as safety courses and general construction courses related to electricity and circuits. At a minimum, Caterpillar operators must have a high school diploma or GED, along with specific CAT operator training.

People interested in becoming Caterpillar machine operators typically have to start out in general construction jobs, then have their employer request apprenticeship training for job advancement. CAT equipment is complicated and dangerous, which is why it requires special training.

Caterpillar Job Market

The job outlook for Caterpillar operators is good with steady growth each year. However, there is some difference between the demand for construction equipment jobs, demolition equipment jobs and road construction jobs. The demand of each of these Caterpillar jobs depends on the city you live in. For instance, younger cities have a lot more construction jobs than older cities, but older cities have higher demand for road maintenance Caterpillar operators.

One thing is for certain; Caterpillar jobs are going to be around for a long time because competition is low and there will always be the need for construction and demolition vehicles and operators.

Caterpillar Job Salary Information

Caterpillar operators enjoy a high base salary at around $25 per hour. This can increase to as much as $40 per hour with enough experience. It's a great stepping-stone for any general construction worker. Operating heavy equipment requires skill, which is why the salary is higher than other construction jobs. The more experience a person has in operating Caterpillar equipment, the higher the salary can go, making it a great career choice for those interested in construction related careers.
