I have been working at Winnebago full-time
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.
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.

wonderful co=workers. Great benefits
either work a lot of overtime, or cut hours. Hard to make a comfortable living when hours are inconsistant.

Pay is pretty decent, most weekends off, benefits are pretty good although they go up in price every year. Plenty of personal time.
Don't work on line 1. Line one is the workhorse line and gets all the overtime. 50 hour weeks for months while the other 2 lines get 40. Also line 1 is where Saturdays are mandatory while the other lines maybe work 1 or 2 Saturdays a year. Also the line manager is very condescending and treats people like their lesser than him.
Advice to Management
Go down onto the floor and see what the employees are doing. See who is busting their tail to make sure things are done right and recognize good ideas. Also do preventative maintenance on machines so they don't break down and your employees don't have to put in 50+ hours a week to "make schedule"
I worked at Winnebago full-time (More than 10 years)
I had seven different bosses in 22 years, and all but one were great to work for. The job could be dirty and sweaty, but it was good overall.
Hours are very market driven so they can go from twenty hours overtime to four day weeks in a couple weeks, and when things slow down, they can and will look for excuses to get rid of a few people: Emplyee half-life is around five years; Crappy, over-priced health insurance;
they have plenty of holidays. you earn vacation quickly, oppertunities for advancement. easy going people. and the ability to make the best rvs in the market
short weeks due to it being a recreational industry and a slow economy. sometimes there is alot of back stabbing and gossip
Advice to Management
the top management should be out on the floor more often to see what work their people are doing so they know you milking the clock and who really works
