Large Corporation with little concern for employees
In-Room Dining Server (Former Employee) – Kohler, WI – 16 June 2017
Working at the American Club sucks. There is very little room for advancement unless you have a higher up connection. The manager for the room service department does not know how to schedule employees nor know how to reply to and resolve issues.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Sheridan, AR – 14 June 2017
It's a lot of hard work for little pay. 12 hour shifts only making 9.50 an hour didn't really cut it. The job was tiring and annoying. A lot of the employees don't know what No means... they also don't know how to do their jobs. They instead walk around flirting or trying to make inappropriate advances on others. It's like high school all over again. I am way to grown for that.
Construction Worker (Former Employee) – Rockledge, FL – 9 June 2017
A typical day at work was the boss picked me up at around 7:00 AM and work intill around 6:30. Then go to different houses doing small work like trim, drywall, and replacing tile. I'v learned that it is not an easy job to do and that it is easier to say it then to do it because it has to be perfect. The hardest part of the day was the last job because you are super tied and just want to get it over with.
Operation Technician (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – 7 June 2017
Kohler is a fast pace environment with very little down time. Kohler reinvests an average of at least 90 percent of our earnings back into the Company annually. This enables their privately held company to grow at a steady pace.
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Kohler, WI – 6 June 2017
Great opportunity for the 0.1%. Otherwise keep your head down and do as you are told. Management communication of clear expectations could be greatly improved. A very top-down, bureaucratic organization.
Very good pay, good area.
99.9% of salaried employees are treated poorly, even directors and VPs can be treated as minions by business presidents
Buyer - Strategic Sourcing, Global Faucets (Current Employee) – Kohler, WI – 2 June 2017
A very meeting heavy workplace. Well selected and thoroughly vetted staff. Unfortunately each team seems to be eternally understaffed and therefore the employees overworked. Would recommend if you are looking for a challenge that you will receive recognition for every step of the way, but do expect to spend extra hours at the job daily.
highly productive with 4 flat screens in the break room along with a few exercising eqiuptments
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Sheridan, AR – 2 June 2017
I highly recommend this job for the people who like to stay busy but also enjoy a little fun time. Allowed to listen to music via personal headphones or speakers and whenever you need a snack just walk to the break room and choose from any of the 6 vending machines packed with variety

First Shift Worker (Former Employee) – Kohler, WI – 25 May 2017
It is a lot of monotonous work but the pay was very good. Sometimes I experienced issues with the shop foreman on issues pertaining to quality. However, they are a very understanding company and willing to work with people on placement.
Reservation Agent (Former Employee) – Kohler, WI – 17 May 2017
A typical day at the office is sipping on a cup of coffee or 3 to keep you awake during the high volume of calls. Each call can vary from 3 minutes to an hour+, because it really depend on what the guest would like to reserve during their visit at the American Club.
I've learned that biting your tongue on a rough call usually make your day easier, however that is not always the case because as an central reservation agent you can only provide so much for the guest although you do handle all the bookings; rooms, spa services, dining, activities, golf tees and special events. Not everyone in the office is authorized to provide certain requests unless it's approved.
Management wise in the office is good. When someone starts slacking, the ones who noticed usually put them on check to stay focus to assist calls and guests. Most times when your plate is full, if you ask, most likely someone will offer to help you with unanswered calls, emails and voicemails.
The hardest part of the job would be balancing personal life, break and high volume calls. Personal life matters because even after you leave the office you constantly worry about the guests requests which you cannot confirm due to lack of authorization. Basically leaving work with more homework.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated workers who often are not recognized enough. It's actually a great work environment despite the high call volume and high maintenance of certain guests. Sometimes you even dream of taking calls. Overall, it was a great workplace andmore... advance experience in customer service.less

Stressful work environment, poor management quantity over quality
Warehouse Operator/ P.I.V Operator and Trainer (Former Employee) – Kohler, WI 53044 – 10 May 2017
Kohler Company used to be THE place to work in sheboygan county, no longer is that the case. the management is beyond poor, and seem to have no clue what they are doing. they change everything so dramatically and frequently its hard to keep up. the hours are rediculous. i never saw my family, my marriage began to deteriorate, and i began to hate my job. i used to enjoy my job so much. if i were you id look for employment else where in the county, it is basically next to impossible to move up in pay with their tier a, tier b system. only way to make more money is to get trained on piv equipment, which they are very selective of who gets trained. i would know, i was a trainer here.
next to no breaks 2 10 minute breaks for 9 hours and 3 if you worked 10, stressful working evironment
