Material Handler (Current Employee) – Greenville, WI – April 22, 2015
Is working on the computer and learning to adjust to everyday changes with the receiving process. How to do tower audits and to train new employees. The hardest part of the job is learning to adjust to new changes and to apply them to everyday work. I work with a good group of people that are more than happy to help each other out when needed. Is having to work with people that are willing to go out of their way to help you.
Welder / Mig Welding / Galvanized Welding (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – April 14, 2015
The majority was worth while but the employees were often counter to the company. Management was usually unable to understand skills needed to run a weld shop. Co-workers often worked hard and were ok to be around. The best part was knowing where the finished product ended up and it inspired to keep workers on the lookout for higher quality.
Chasing parts all day, and keeping you working for a Temp Agency.
Team Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oshkosh Wi – April 6, 2015
A typical day of work involved arriving to work 30 min prior to shift. Brief employees of the days production, and short coming of any parts. Attend 3 meetings per day with management to discuss part shortages, product completions, and team goals. The rest of the day you spend chasing part shortages that either are on hold or being shipped or transferred from the warehouse in Appleton. You end up sending a bunch of trucks off the line that go into rework, cause of part shortages. At the end of the day you feel like you didn't accomplish anything. Upper management doesn't communicate with you. After all that you get to stay 30 min later after shift to track parts, fix Kronos (time keeping) and send your production manager a list of stuff you couldn't complete cause of shortages.
Union Employees well knowledge of the process of work.
Hired through a Temp Agency, never felt like part of the team.

Cab Assembler (Current Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – March 2, 2015
I was very happy to be working at Oshkosh Truck. During my time in the military I drove the same vehicles the Truck produces. They where powerful, safe and reliable. Unfortunately I have become disabled and unable to continue to do my job there unless they can find me an easier job that meets my medical restrictions.
