    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation

    Pros

    Oshkosh truck offers great pay rate and did have a fairly quick raise rate and the benefits package was a great package.

    Cons

    Despite the good pay rate and the great benefits package, trucks didnt have much room to grow professionally and also management was sometimes horrible in changes that would be made in production lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The feedback I would like to offer is that they should hear more of what the people who actually assemble the parts and work on the line instead of just letting someone who hasnt worked on the line make changes according to some data sheet.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation

    Pros

    The product we build makes a difference in people's lives every day. Nice community, good pay/benefits.

    Cons

    10 hour days and a couple weekends a month are an EXPECTED MINIMUM. Change, even change for the better, is very hard to create.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the blame game and figure out how to get a work-life balance. Decent place to work.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good paying job for Oshkosh and good support for surrounding businesses.

    Cons

    Working overtime all the time and still continuous layoffs. Always running out of parts because of purchasing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you hire kids fresh out of college doesn't mean they know how to run a company. Need to quit blaming employees for their mistakes. Hopefully there will be progress in Oshkosh as promised when they extended the contract to keep work in Oshkosh.

    Pros

    Stable work, and the customers are interesting.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are third-world class'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits will keep the best employees. Benefits are worth 20%+ of fair compensation. A Salary or hourly wage is only part of the package.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation

    Pros

    A good first job to have coming out of college with lots of oppurtunities to work on big projects and have direct impacts to processes.

    Cons

    The expectation of working a lot of hours. A culture to work harder vs smarter and the typical glares if only working an 8 hour day.

  9. Ok job, liked the people

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They really take care of you in the US and when it comes to training.

    Cons

    Senior management is in it for themselves. Ruined good leadership in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing FSR leadership and let them do their job.

    Pros

    Excellent pay.. wide variety of job opportunies and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Too much push push let's rush to hit the numbers and not enough management caring about the quality of the product

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your tail and learn to actually listen to what employees have to say and their ideas instead of treating them like crap and shutting them out.
