Kits (Former Employee) – Madison, SD – February 17, 2019
worked in the Kits department - was told that i would be transferred to engines in about a month and 1/2 - when i was finally transferred, i went to radiators / radiator shrouds and installing oil filters to the chassis. i visited with HR, they told me that is where they needed me "at this time. maybe after 2 or 3 months, i might be transferred to engines."
I love the pay and the work ain't bad but you don't get too accelerate fast or work in other departments like you're supposed to quick enough and it's an all right place to work but they don't give you enough brakes and I think 10 minutes for break is not enough especially for how much time that it takes to walk to the break room and so on and so forth and they don't appreciate their employees enough to keep any employees that's why so many people quit their
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Waco, TX – June 28, 2018
Didn't really get any benefits because I was working through a temp service. Although I worked through a temp service the manager there was horrible and I would never want to work there for the company as a regular employee.
Painter, Quality Control, and Parts Manager (Former Employee) – Waco, TX – June 11, 2018
The overtime was good. But the management wasn't great. Also there are a lot of very unprofessional supervisors. Lots of inappropriate behavior. Some bad behavior and rule breaking is totally ignored. Superiors play favorites
Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – West Bend, WI – February 14, 2018
I would simply tell anyone applying here for a white collar position to avoid it. The culture is toxic after the French takeover. Unless you enjoy playing politics and consistently lying to yourself and being lied to I would simply avoid. What they tell you in the interview and preach to you upfront will be very much from the truth once you hit the ground. Nepotism reigns supreme

undisclosed (Current Employee) – Waco Texas – January 1, 2016
Department managers show compassion and care for their production workers. Human Resource manager has true love for the employees and understanding of life situation. Plant manager is worried about the bottom line therefore has little compassion and is also a bit of a micro-manager reflecting is lacking trust of his employees. Coworkers are great. Truly enjoy the people I work with. All are working for the betterment of the company and are not afraid of putting in the work.
Worked the Night shift from 3:30 pm - 2:00 AM. Talk with shift leads about goals and expectations of each area. Met with area employees(co-workers) to relay what our daily priorities were. Then got to work making those goals a reality. Hardest part of the job was getting enough parts to keep up with the pace my team was working. Most enjoyable part was at the end of the day when I would report to my supervisors the amount of cages we got done because it was usually more than the daily goal.
Nice people, night managers are great to work with, recognition
Paint parts for 5 trucks a day. Painting of new parts. Management was more of a mom and pop operation. co-workers were ok. Hardest part was working in hot area. Most enjoyable was working with my team.
Production Planner (Current Employee) – Waco, TX – May 28, 2014
A typical day is very fast paced for a moderate sized plant of about 70 employees. I had never worked in this type of environment so I was fortunate enough to learn a great deal about fork lifts. Small departments which equals to more hands on management for constant guidance. The toughest part of the job would be leaving for relocation. The best part of the job knowing that we are building quality forklifts.
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) – West Bend, WI – December 10, 2013
Everyday was a new day, always learning new things within the Enterprise IT world.
I learned many different ways to troubleshoot client computers, how to setup networks that allowed computers and other technologies to communicate with one another. I have a better understanding of securities and encryption within the IT world.
Management was very easy to talk to and work with when a problem arrised.
Co-workers were great people and I've learned many different ways to assess and solve IT problems from them. We have all stayed close since my leaving.
The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out a problem that affected more than one person. Staying calm, explaining the situation to the end-users helped them stay calm and to understand we were working on the issue diligently.
Being able to solve a problems that arrised throughout the day. Also being able to create VM's (Virtual Machines) or networks that worked properly.
Hour long lunch, working with great people that always gave back to the community.
