Yes, intermediates will always appear as the products first and then used up as a reactant in the following step. However, catalysts will always appear on the reactant side first. Catalysts are not consumed!
Intermediates appear as products and then are consumed in later steps while catalysts are present in the beginning of the mechanism, used in one of the steps, then produced so as not to be consumed in the overall rxn.
