Excellent Benefits and Pay
Industrial Painter (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIMay 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, WAApril 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.

Senior Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Appleton, WIApril 27, 2018
Not all areas are treated the same. Some areas experience gender bias (i.e. in the truck building business only males understand about building trucks; male dominated).

Traffic Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Orrville, OHApril 23, 2018
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.
Pros
great incentives and huge push for moral building
Cons
high turnover rates of team members at divisional level

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  OregonApril 11, 2018
I enjoyed it for the most part. My manager was terrible and caused very high turn over. Retail schedules can be hard to have a good work/life balance but I really loved the company itself.

welder (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIApril 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.

Stock Room Associate (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLApril 3, 2018
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, WIMarch 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.

Cut-Throat
Office Professional (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIMarch 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.
Pros
Hire lots of veterans!!!
Cons
Cut-Throat, Political, Bad Union/Management relationship, Unstable future
