Fabrication Manager (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – August 17, 2018
I was at Lippert for 5 years and 1 month. Started on the line and was fortunate enough to move to management. Once there it was obvious if you where not a leader in training there was no training or guidance coming your way. You are simply expected to be a mind reader. Human resources on the 19 complex is simply there to cover its own and the message from corporate compared seems to differ drastically. Directors of departments such as maintenance have a habit of micromanaging. Chore values look nice on t shirts and are great to see on signs but they are simply not lived up to by the people that make decisions.

Company is community focused which is great. But inside the walls, they do not follow through with the core values or their advertising of "Everyone Matters". The main core value of "Team Play with Trust" is a farce unless you are in upper management. They will take advantage of your every waking hour.
A-frame production (Current Employee) – Elkhart, IN – July 9, 2018
You will usually work five days a week and each day the group lead will tell your department what that number is. Usually it's a pretty okay thing but sometimes they set that number WAY too high, especially if your short in your department or if mac ines are broken or etc. Then they will have you go help another line. This repeats. Until they let you go home.
Should be better supervisors with better experience and have everyone doing their job not being with their friend and taking their time away by taljin

Plant#28 - Welder (Former Employee) – Middlebury, IN – June 25, 2018
They will work you so long in the chassis plant that people would just walk out of the job leaving the rest of the team to pick of the slack. management would always take their sweet time getting someone over to help leaving the rest of us with an order too big for our team, but we had to stay until we got our quota. ridiculous hours. and when you HAD to do overtime it would come out of your teams bonus.
Company parties, decent people
TERRIBLE management that knew nothing about welding or the time frame it takes to complete frames.
Welder (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – June 22, 2018
My typical day consisted of installing actuators in the slide outs, motors for the feet and jacks if it wasn't electronic. I was also a repair man so any damaged load that came through the door I was required to fix
Intern (Current Employee) – Goshen, IN – June 21, 2018
If you are not one of the favorites you are not recognized or promoted. Assembly is always “King” and 1st shift is “Queen”. Upper management is all young college grads with little or no hands on work experience.
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – May 18, 2018
CoWorkers were so rude and disrespectful. The way I was trained was so poor it was like I was being set up to fail or look bad. I have over 15 yrs experience in my field and my 2 coworkers were threatened by it because I was always told But you don't have 15 yrs exp here. Ive never worked with such rude and immature people like that. I got hurt while at work..it wasnt work related and totally my fault and I even made that known to HR but within 2 weeks of getting hurt I was let go for no reason at all. I had only been there 2.5 months and everything was fine until I got hurt and within 2 weeks I was let go with no real explanation. Their company motto is Everyone Matters which is clearly just a front and to give the community the impression they are a great company who cares about their employees.
