Military Experience and a Caterpillar Career

There are numerous benefits to hiring military veterans and spouses. Military personnel bring a strong work ethic and values that were honed during their service time. This foundation makes Caterpillar an ideal fit for individuals with a military background to continue on their road to success.

"We have a long history of working with the U.S. military. We are proud that they can count on Cat equipment, and they can also count on us to be supportive employers of those who serve our country."

Doug Oberhelman
Chairman and CEO

"I am humbled that Caterpillar is considered an employer of choice by many veterans. We have hired veterans, as well as veteran family members, into a variety of positions at Caterpillar, and we find that from production positions to management, their experiences and backgrounds position them to bring a unique perspective and approach to their work. This diversity of experience and thought is a competitive advantage for Caterpillar."
