Kohler's missed opportunity in a southern state. [Searcy Arkansas]

Non-scab, Due Payer (Former Employee)
Searcy, AR

I worked at Kohler full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood Company, with a solid product. The only company I've ever worked for, with which I consider myself their customer. Very reasonable with Organized labor.

ConsThey allowed a clique majority of production workers, - polishers - at UAW local 100; to create the widest range of incomes I've ever seen, even in non-union shops: 27K - 90K. Had that money been spread out more evenly, strikes would have not happened. My Father and Uncles were UAW, and I was a member as well - Searcy's Local 100 was NOT how organized labor Works. Those of you failed the People of Searcy Arkansas; whatever you're doing now, do it over in baldknob.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow the Japanese model for setting up shop in the south. They don't compete with your products.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Adopt some kind of formal continuous improvement… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Old Boys Club

Finance (Former Employee)

I worked at Kohler full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Large company & opportunity for career change/advancement to the right employees.… Cons: Too much upper management and management that is not qualified (golden boys).
