Cummins offers very technically challenging work and they give good training. They have inclusive atmosphere and promotes diversity. Overall culture is good but is also depends on managers/team you are working for. No job security as the lay-off people in every 1-2 years and Cummins is very highly vulnerable to cyclic
Cummins knows the value of its employees.
In my short time with the company there have been many operational problems to overcome. Being such a large multi-national business there are obvious issues on the same scale however the support and great work environment provided by Cummins is fantastic. I acquired an array of skills and experiences that will be invaluable as I progress with my engineering career.
Data Entry (Former Employee) - Kilsyth VIC - 27 March 2018
Most people were quite nice to work with but there were some major problems with some management .
When problems were pointed out to senior management were pointed out to senior management it took months for some action to be taken .
Several mangers looked down at workers in lower positions lumping everyone in together.
I really enjoyed working at Cummins and was very sad to leave due to redundancy. The people are what made it very enjoyable, even at the busiest and stressful times. I loved the variety of work I had within my role and I have gained a lot of knowledge in the 14 years I worked there.
I would recommend working at Cummins. Their professionalism and standard of operation is is very conducive to a great working environment. Their product is not just of good quality, but the back up service is second to none.
Won't dismiss you unless you do something against policy.
Because of a big company, sometimes communication is lacking.
Answering phones, processing work sheets & reconciling credit cards.
I learned about diesel engines.
My boss was awesome.
Great place to work.
The hardest part of the job was leaving it.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working for Cummins.
Cummins culled 2000+ white collar workers globally. A lot of senior staff were dismissed, along with my contract not being renewed full-time despite promises from management.
I worked at my utmost capacity whilst being there, made good impressions to all business leaders. Yet, an female engineering intern was chosen over me because they wanted to improve on their hiring statistics...
I learnt a lot working for Cummins South Pacific as a Field Service Technician. It set me up for success in further developing my career as a Diesel Technician. I maintained a variety of Cummins engines ranging from 3.3litre capacity up to 78litre capacity engines. It was a great experience.
Loved working for this company,made a lot of friends with my co-workers,the early starts suited me as with the early finishes but also plenty of overtime if i needed it, the only bad thing for me as a production worker was the amount of paper work we were getting was slowing the production work down.
allowing us to be flexible and learn more skills in different areas.
Organise the days work load , allocate staff to required tasks, sort out after hours repairs the were done during the night , talk to customers about their requirements for the day or rest of the week ,
Co workers most were reliable and very hard working some required some guidance .A great many of employees I hired as Apprentices went on to be Managers at other branches.
Hardest parts of job was some difficult and unreasonable customers but which was what I enjoyed to most
A proffessional company with proffessiol employees from top magement to all the way down
