I loved working there but unfortunately an employee who was on maternity leave came back and took over my role. The employees, including management, were extremely friendly and professional. It was one of the best companies I have worked at in my career and would not hesitate returning should a position that suited my skill set became available.

If you work hard I’ll keep you on your work ethic is important You need to be able to be versatile to work in a bunch of different areas when you’re working casually as they may move you around but if you work hard enough you’ll see the reward for salary means working Saturday mornings as well

The workers are a good bunch of people. But the management needs to be reviewed. You are not recognised for your abilities or experience. You can only advance in the company if you are a friend or relative of the management team. There are no incentives for the workers, and any productive thoughts form the shop floor are not listened to or recognised

I have improved on my Excel skills as I adjusted to more work and reporting requirements from management Management is very supportive of progressive changes Work culture is very demanding and requires constant adaptation to new processes and systems. Hardest part of my role was to adjust to the many cross accounting systems Komatsu used and when changes were made. Most enjoyable part of my role was the friendly environment and working with employees who were very dedicated to make Komatsu successful.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Too many system

Komatsu Australia is by far the best company to work for with the best management ever. The only reason why I left Komatsu was that there was a resession 2008 and 2009. All the contractors was laid of from the mines and our contract was one. Very sad story those days.
Pros
Excellent company.
Cons
None

Meeting with all people especailly the new drivers all the time. Learned and started to drive high reach forks. Management always talk to you and understand and explain anything you not sure. Everyone all so friendly towards each other and they all have breaks together and talk. Never found anything that ever seemed hard ,all part of day's work. Get to work every day on time ,work safely and come back home to family alive.

I worked for P&H and Joy Global who later became Komatsu under the company acquisition. So really I cannot make any review on Komatsu, however, I can say is if they operate similarly to P&H and Joy Global then I would assume they would be a good company to work for.
Pros
Opportunites to be promoted or work around other places around the World
Cons
None I can think of

Whilst gaining some work experience at Komatsu the team are very nice and friendly. They are helpful and very welcoming. They are very onto their PPE gear which is important when working around all shapes and sizes of machinery.

I didn't enjoy this job as much as I enjoy working in aviation. It was boring work. I really like working in the aviation industry.
