Industrial Painter (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – May 4, 2018
This company offers excellent benefits and pay with chances of advancement given. I also noticed that people who have difficulty with the job in their department are offered another position in another department that was more suited to their needs.
They have something in place to help employees deal with problems in their life outside of work that I was very impressed with.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Woodinville, WA – April 28, 2018
I enjoyed work at Oshkosh/Carters as a mother due to the nice work environment and convenience of shopping for my children. The hours were flexible and management was very accommodating to my limited availability in the evening hours and busy family life.
High turnover rate with leadership and team members at certain divisions. Continuity was lacking because of high turnover rate and it significantly impacted production, moral and camaraderie. Corporate offered great leadership, but divisional leadership was retractive.
great incentives and huge push for moral building
high turnover rates of team members at divisional level
welder (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – April 6, 2018
I loved the guys and girls I worked with. I just felt a change was needed. I didn't see any potential for advancement. I would go back in a heart beat. I went off to reinvent myself but now realize I had a pretty good thing there.
The store encourages every shopper to sign up with Rewarding Moments, which can be a struggle sometimes since customers don't like sharing personal information (even though it's just an email address.)

Defense Strategic Purchasing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – March 31, 2018
If you have good work ethic you will work out fine at Oshkosh Corp. You have to be a take charge person and just get things done. Systems are less than desirable but get the job done. Had some great people working here with an interesting top secret book where there A players are kept.

Supplier Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Greenville, WI – March 21, 2018
Oshkosh takes great care and pride in their internship program. They give their interns responsibilities normal to their full-time employees and are always willing to provide any assistance needed while working.
Office Professional (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – March 19, 2018
Very cut-throat environment. In the office, it was all about who you knew. Some people worked there for a few years with no promotions while others received a new promotion every 6 months. Tons of "managers" who didn't manage anyone or anything. Very political. They hire a lot of veterans (which is really awesome!!!), but the military way of doing things shows up at work a lot and not everyone responds well to that "my way or the highway" type of mentality from their supervisor. Saw it cause a lot of friction more than once, and supervisors weren't willing to adjust in order to successfully work with employees. Work-Life balance is only a thing for Directors/Plant Managers on up. Lots of talking behind your back and then surprises in your annual review. There's no feedback during the year. Union/Management relationship is very poor too and makes it difficult to get your work done or focus when you're busy playing chess all day with the next union move.
Hire lots of veterans!!!
Cut-Throat, Political, Bad Union/Management relationship, Unstable future
