    Pros

    Oshkosh Truck offers someone the opportunity to develop yourself as a person and as a leader. There are plenty of opportunities for challenging yourself.

    Cons

    The shifts are kind of awkward and makes it so that it is hard to have time for anything else for you to do with your day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind the thoughts of the workers, if management works for them the workers will work harder for the management.

    Pros

    I would say that the people are great. Mid-level and senior management almost have all worked their way up from the lower levels, so they are easily approachable, no-nonsense and knowledgeable. Benefits are good. Preferential treatment is given to current employees for positions. Upward moves into different types of positions are usually easier than within your current job designation (for example, if you are an admin, moving into contracts or project management, rather than to an executive level admin).

    Cons

    No lunchrooms (there are kitchens), projects often require lots of overtime from all staff, however many people see the project (often for military) as vitally important not only to the business but for our soldiers as well, so the overtime is usually not viewed as a huge inconvenience. Administrative promotions are usually not based on performance, but done personally.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication between departments and divisions, really work on the One-Oshkosh philosophy. When undergoing new projects talk to the admins, they know what is going on and usually have useful input.

    Pros

    Overall good place to work minus management..great pay and good benefits.. Met alot of great people who I work with also.

    Cons

    clueless management and lack of knowledge on how to properly run departments and not willing to listen to production employees when given advice on something.

    Advice to Management

    Need to learn to work with production employees alot better.. When given ideas on how to make our jobs easier listen to us and not ignore us and do it your own ways.. Need to put safety and quality first and not always numbers over quality... Do quality over numbers and alot of money would not be wasted doing work over several times to fix an issue.

    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 Management

    Bring back the trash cans to the main line!

    Large corporation who has acquired several other smaller business which in turn result in the lack of cohesion. The company is working on trying to become one Oshkosh, however, with such a widespread amount of business units, it is a daunting task.
