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

    Pros

    Nothing.

    Cons

    Expect way to much for the pay
    Buddy system through their plants
    Quality of work just hurry and send them out
    Benefits suck
    No family life 10 hours a day throughout the summer 6 days a week

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip and treat your works with respect and stop treating them like slaves. Because it was a family business.

    I worked at Winnebago full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most jobs are easy to learn, just have to want to learn. If you're good with your hands then there are a lot of job choices.

    Cons

    Not many people take pride in their work, people are clicky, and hardly anybody likes to help others. "Not my job" is a common statement.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at people before you promote them, most of middle management are not leaders! Start giving random drug tests.

    I have been working at Winnebago full-time

    Pros

    Great Work environment. Family based company with great benefits packages and respectful, informative executives. A lot of knowledge and help is around you no matter which part of the plant you work in.

    Cons

    Positions handed to people just because they've been here longer than others who may be more qualified. The pay isn't quite that great, they sort of control the market in the area though.

    I worked at Winnebago full-time

    Pros

    pay, benefits and good people to work with good hours for first shift in plastics easy to learn job fast and use of tools.

    Cons

    second shift plastics hours are killer for 4 days are 12 hour shifts and then a 5 hour shift, supervisors are horrible at supervising.

    Advice to Management

    send the managers back to learn how to treat their employees with respect and not de grade them, and make sure the 2nd shift and third shift get called off if bad weather is expected.
