An Equal Opportunity Employer

Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of Gregory Poole’s hiring philosophy. As a Cat® equipment dealer, we adhere to the Caterpillar concept of “The Power of Everyone.” We make every effort to ensure our workforce is as diverse as the customer base we serve. We’ve discovered that different perspectives add value to our work environment and foster a culture based on teamwork and trust.

We also follow all Equal Employment Opportunity-Affirmative Action laws, regulations and directives at the federal, state and local levels. We will not discriminate against applicants based on their race, gender, marital status, familial status, religion, ancestry, sexual orientation, disability, age or veteran status.

Everybody matters at Gregory Poole!

At Gregory Poole, we have pride in our diverse workforce and the amazing work they do. To honor women who have made impactful contributions to the industry, we hosted the 1st annual Women in Construction event in October of 2021.

The event consisted of Q&A with a panel of female representatives from Caterpillar as well as moderation from our VP Tracey Haeseker. Topics discussed ranged from the Construction Industry to how each of these women got to where they are in their careers today.  After some impactful discussions the floor was open to attendees to ask specific questions to panelists. This portion was well received by all in attendance. After lunch and some networking, the group split in half to get in some of the Cat machines for stick time. Two obstacle courses were completed by those who opted to participate.

The event was a huge success, and we are looking forward to hosting this annually moving forward. If you are looking to join a diverse organization that values input from all, then Gregory Poole is the right place for you.
