Great for unlimited overtime, no benefits, burn out and leave when your bills are paid.

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

Pros

I made $20 an hour and worked there for 1 year and a half. The job offered almost unlimited overtime on occasion and there are times when the work can seem enjoyable if you are organized and like hassling suppliers, which at times I did. There was some autonomy depending on the work load.

Cons

You will do data entry and cold calling until you imprint excel sheets in your eyes and your hand ache. You will also feel like a glorified intern however, the interns will feel like they are above you as they get more project work and more interesting work than you. As a contractor, you will likely be treated as disposable labor. There is also a everyone for themself attitude. Little to no culture of friendship or comradery. Nobody seems to be friends and everyone is there just for a paycheck. When you take this job, it will likely be for the money, however when the money is no longer worth the job you will have a hard time leaving this job for more fullfiling work because they are known for burning out employees so that even with what litle time you have left after working 55 hours you don't have the energy to look for a job elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show interest and build real relationships with your employees. Act like you care and it will go a long ways. Occaisionally, ask an employee how his work is going and just be friendly rather than treating them like they are equipment to be used and disposed of.

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the trash cans to the main line!
