    No problem at all

    Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) Kohler, WI

    Pros-Benefits-as a private company, you can not beat the medical, dental, vision offered. 401k matching, pension(which is a thing of the past to many companies) Vacation, sick, holidays.
    -Great reputation as a company
    -Great product
    -Good pay...I find it interesting people saying below average pay...For the the area, as good if not better. Stop trying to compare the salaries to large cities with higher COL
