    I have been working at Wabash National full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a good benefits package and good pay! Between my 18th and 19th birthday, I had made over $37,000 which is pretty good money at that age!

    Shortly before I turned 20, I had bought a car and lived in my own home. The work is hard but it keeps you in shape and gives you the ability to start a life for yourself!

    They also give you the ability to move up in the company. I've seen associates become supervisors in less than two years!

    Cons

    There is A LOT of bull crap that comes with working at Wabash National. Almost like being back in high school. You have to be able to take it and often give it back, otherwise you most definitely will not make it.

    Most of the jobs here are repetitive and sometimes boring so having a good imagination is helpful in getting time to fly

    May sometimes have to work 8-12 hours a shift. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people tell me that the company has no right to make them work 8+ hours in a day or that they are going to take points and leave early. I did too when I started because nobody told me that they often make production run over 8 hours. So be prepared to work overtime!

    Advice to Management

    Treat the associates with respect, switch them from area to area every now and then, and for Pete's sake PLEASE raise your standards for future employees. The hiring process at Wabash National is a joke. The reason why we have such a high turnover rate is because the people we hire are often NOT qualified to run ENTRY level positions in a manufacturing plant that uses big machinery and equipment to assemble complex trailers. I have unfortunately seen and worked with people (some that were/are in management) who are unable to read a tape measure, follow safety rules and regulations, or are just plain lazy all the time, and they end up messing up a trailer(s), hurting themselves and/or others, or quitting.

    Pros

    This company is on the up-swing of innovation and acquisition. Record breaking profits in recent years.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a job, this is a good place to check out. I feel they could pay hourly employees a little better to become more competitive with manufacturing job seekers.
