Not a bad place for an internship.

Information Technology Intern (Current Employee)
Oshkosh, WI

I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation as an intern for more than a year

ProsFor an internship, they are very flexible with students and will try to accommodate them as much as possible.

ConsThere can be periods of time where there isn't much work that an intern can do. There is also the matter of little training going on as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a pretty nice internship program, but you hire very few from it because you seem to only want senior level experience. You have plenty of valuable skills coming out of nearby colleges.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great company, great culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFlexible work environment with supportive co workers, great benefits and always working to improve. You can always find the help that you need to accomplish your tasks

Great Place to Gain Experience

Accounting and Tax Intern (Current Employee)
Oshkosh, WI

I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation as an intern for more than a year

ProsFantastic intern program & many career advancement/learning opportunities

ConsCertain managers do not care what your school schedule is and demand minimum of 30 hours a week while in class and to fit most of those hours in during "business hours."

Advice to Senior ManagementRelax "hourly requirements" for interns. Would have still worked 30+ hrs a week while in school, but know others who were aggravated by it.

201 Assembler (Former Employee)
Oshkosh, WI

I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Paying Job (while it lasted)
Great Insurance
Lots of over time, 12 paid holidays. The company shuts the plant down two weeks a year for x-mas and 4th of July week. Turkey or Ham or Fruit Basket at X-Mas, the company cares for its employees and safety is stressed.

ConsYou never have a trash can when u need one.
Manditory over time. lack of proper notification of over time. Production hours change week to week.
Use of a point system for attendance in place but it's nessary.
Not a lot of stability to plan a social life around or a long term career or to buy a house for new hires.
Manditory use of 4 vacation days on 4th of July week shut down.
Not enough Personal Days

Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the trash cans to the main line!
