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

    Pros

    I joined Wabash in one of it's worst performing years with a team of new hires determined to impart the world of Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement onto the organization as a whole. In 2-3 years Wabash had been completely reprocessed to eliminate waste, any productive associate who wanted to add to the process was empowered to do so. This was a perfect greenfield emplimentation.

    Cons

    Given many gains in quality our detection levels improved and new faults were constantly springing up. This just reinforces the continuous nature of the process.

    Advice to Management

    Other reviews are not very optimistic, hopefully all associates get an opportunity to explain the aspects that make for a difficult work environment.

    I worked at Wabash National part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The manual labor is my type of work. I loved always being taught to do every job in the company, and as long as you work hard and pay attention you get to be trained for the next position. I like the fact that you can move up in your working positions. You always learn something new.

    Cons

    To be totally honest the only con to the company of Wabash national is that you can only be hired on Part-time, and then when its time to lay people off they are quit biased they let go of the woman before the men.

    Advice to Management

    Getting fans would be about the only thing I feel that could really be a factor of creating a better work environment.

    I have been working at Wabash National full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of Overtime if wanted without issue

    Cons

    Lack of Advancement Opportunities due to shifting of unqualified associates/coordinators/supervisors to departments where they lack the technical skills and experience to perform.

    Lack of Technical Educational Opportunities which when made available are not awarded to dedicated associates but are instead extended to Salaried Personnel as Resume enhancement.

    Advice to Management

    Promote Associates by Ability , in their Departments but not base promotions solely on time in service.
