    I worked at Kohler full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours, wages, time off. Being able that work independently. Opportunity to move up within the company. Flexibility when need time off.

    Cons

    For non-union employees HR is not there for you. The company want you to think they care about you as a person but that is only in words. When you need them they are nowhere to be found.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be to the Kohler’s themselves. They need to re-evaluate the entire chain of command and see how their hourly associates are really being treated.
