    I have been working at Kohler full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you've roofed or done concrete, and dont mind some physical labor, one piece casting at Kohler is a better option. The schedule is 5:30 to 2 or 4, depending on if we're on 8 hr or 10 hr shifts. 8's means mandatory Saturdays and 10's means sometimes you can work Saturdays. Nice schedule for a family man.

    Cons

    Incentive to grade well and make a LOT more money is restricted by seniority taking precedence over performance grades and constant new hires. If you stick around awhile until your bunch of new hires leaves or gets the boot, and you are catching on, you can look forward to higher pay within a few years if you can grade well and earn it.
