Productive and fun environment to work in. Lacks in good management.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Stoughton, WI – July 20, 2018
Stoughton Trailers is a good place to work, especially if it's your first manufacturing job. It can be a very repetitive and hitting the number is very important. Some areas have a little bit more down time than others but employees are constantly encouraged to stay moving, typically by cleaning. The biggest down side to Stoughton Trailers is most likely the management.
Executive Management (Former Employee) – Stoughton, WI – June 17, 2018
Absolutely terrible management culture lead by family ownership, no focus upon strategy and direction within the organization. Very disappointing experience, emphasis upon petty subject matter versus what is important to the business and employees.
Assembly Line Worker/teamlead (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – May 9, 2018
Dirty and cluttered working conditions. Decent pay for line workers. Poor management. There is a constant shortage on parts that force us to send units out without them to be done later. The overall moral in there poor and like nobody wants to be there

Stoughton trailers seemed like a very ideal job when i first started working there. The pay seemed fine and the promise of benefits after 90 days sounded great. However, even after my 90 days i was t immediately a hired in employee, as it took staff a few weeks to get me processed. i never received any back pay since your pay goes up after 90 days. Then my supervisor moved me to a different position and told me that even though it was more work it would be worth it because I would get a pay raise. I never received the raise, instead I was given excuse after excuse as to why they wouldn´t give it to me. All in all, its ok money, crummy benefits, and poor management.
Great place if you want to be moved around to 5 different stations when you were told you were going to be doing one
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Brodhead, WI – October 15, 2017
Multiple jobs when told you would do one if someone calls off, quits, or has to leave for the day your section in the line will have to work two times harder and still meet the takt # especially on 2nd shift if you don't meet the amount of trailers they need by the need of your shift plan to stay at least another hour to 2 unsafe work environment poor upper management and lack of tools they have beat up tools on the floor and reuse their drill bids to save money but they just keep breaking and basically wasting time!
Weekly pay, besides this nothing good is coming from this place
Great Place To Work When There's A Good Team And Enough People In Management That Know What Their Doing.
Line Welder, Core Units Welder (Former Employee) – Stoughton, WI – August 10, 2017
The work is quite fast pace, the employees are some real characters, the facility is cleaner than most with more advanced equipment, etc. Personally, my biggest recommendation for the company would be more training time updating training and reviewing with each individual in positions such as, tack leads, supervisors, managers, and other upper management what their exact job descriptions would be and to find better outlets when emotional at work then to abuse their power within their position, as well as coming up with a much better way to fix the company's turnaround rates.
Maintenence Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stoughton, WI – June 7, 2017
Speaking as a former employee, this company does not care about its employees. The is no work/life balance and the pay is horrible. This company drives the employees into the ground then spits them out
Company searching for ways to reduce cost and get more productivity from all employees.
Director Information Technology (Former Employee) – Stoughton, WI – May 3, 2014
There wasn't a typical day. Every day was different with new objectives and meeting the needs of a growing company. I picked up more tools to use for project cost justification. Management was changing in an effort to continue to drive cost down.
Great coworkers, easy to work with but a bit layed back. A dificult part of this job was to get the staff to be more productive and accountable for their actions. The review process did not support this effort very well.
I enjoyed working in an environment that offered constant challenges and opportunities to take the company to higher levels.
Competitive salary, privately held family business.
Benefits were light, lack of direction or understanding how management wanted to move the company forward.
