More than just a factory
Laborer/Floater (Former Employee), Forest City, IASeptember 11, 2013
Pros: great pay/benefits, management was very helpful, and advancement was easy if you worked hard along with being a leader.
Cons: strenuous hours, shortened lunch break, gets very hot further inside the building during the summers.
Winnebago Industries is a factory/assembly line job. They make Motorhomes or also known as Winnebago’s. So of course, the job gets very repetitive after a couple months of doing the same thing over and over again. A typical workday would consist of clocking in at 6:00a.m. then you wouldn't clock out until 4-5:00p.m.. I asked for more hours because I – more... needed to save money for college and I was a "Floater." I learned everyone's jobs so if someone called in sick or left work, I would stop where I was working and pick up where that individual left off at. Anyway, I picked up more hours to save money for school so I worked from 5:00a.m. to around 5-6:00p.m. Monday to Saturday sometimes even Sunday. My supervisor was great! He made work enjoyable by creating a relaxing, stress free environment with other co-workers. Hardest part of the job was trying to work as a team. It was an assembly line so if one person started to slack, then other people couldn't do their jobs till that individual completed. Or, you had the people that called in almost every Monday because they were "sick." So I had to deal with a large variety of co-workers from the hard workers to the ones who slacked off. That’s where I had to step up and learned to multitask while making sure the assembly line didn’t shut off due to people falling behind. The most enjoyable part of working there was I got along with almost everyone there on my assembly line. Our assembly line averaged about 75-85 people on it. I got along with about 90 percent of them. The people I didn’t get along with were usually quite so they were hard to talk to. My supervisor got a lot of praise from other co-workers about me and my work ethic. This is why I have a hard work ethic and also give a helping hand to those who need it. – less

I wish I was still working there
Powder Painter/Stretch Press Operator (Former Employee), Forest City, IADecember 4, 2012
Pros: full insurance benefits; knowledgeable supervisors; teamwork
Cons: hot and dusty work environment
Winnebago Industries truly places their employees first. They offer top-notch insurance packages for medical, dental and life. On top of that they pay very competitive wages to their workers. Were it not for the fact that I was laid off due to a drastic drop in company profit figures I would still be working there.
