High Stress Environment with no job security.....
Upper Management-Production Efficiency (Former Employee), Any facilityApril 2, 2014
Pros: immediate co-workers are usually pretty decent to work with, wisconsin can be another story.
Cons: high stress, under constant strutiny, you are always wrong unless wisconsin says otherwise.
Wisconsin controls all plants ultimately. They govern from their throne and can do no wrong. Employees at each facility are above average, they won't hire average, but pay is average and stress is high in all positions having to jump through hoops for Wisconsin. You may have a great idea for improvement since you are the hands on employee, but, you – more... won't get credit for it. Wisconsin will dance around it trying to put their spin in it failing multiple times before they come back to your idea, call it their idea, and it's a success! See how wonderful they are! Co-workers are usually pretty good as you all have to stick together to defend all your actions to management. One wrong move and your gone. Stress in all departments is killer, pay is definitely sub-par for the stress endured. Oh, unless you are in Wisconsin then it's a cake walk because you can do no wrong. – less

Factory work, generally fun workplace with good people
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Kohler, WIMarch 3, 2014
Pros: work environment, people, stable hours
Cons: repetitive
Typical day included starting with a meeting in the morning and then from there going to whatever work station you are assigned for the day. Each job was generally repetitive and basic assembly line work. The job was enjoyable for the most part because of the people that worked there. This was a summer job for me and a great way to make money between – more... school years. – less

Pros: teams stick together trying to help each other through the day
Cons: too much stress, too much work, not worth it for no matter how much money. low pay. no bonus to speak off.
Far too high workload with stress levels through the roof. No help from management at all. There is not a day going by without someone bursting into tears in the kitchen. 2 to 3 employees off sick with tress related illness at any one time.

Fun
Golf Course Maintenance (Former Employee), Kohler, WIOctober 30, 2013
Start your day by working independently for first jobs of the day which is nice to know they trust you and your judgement to get the job accomplished. Also, was a fun place to work although it was work and not all was easy, but was a great place to work.
Management was very approachable with either work or personal issues and did listen when talked – more... to. It did seem that management favored more workers than others which doing the same job every day wasn't too enjoyable, but it is work. Hardest part of the job was the weather conditions varying and the most enjoyable part was the satisfaction knowing we did our best and received compliments on the course from customers even when not at work! – less

Kohler is a large, diversified, privately held company that enables individuals the opportunity to grow
Supervisor - Receiving and Inspection Department (Former Employee), Kohler, WIOctober 21, 2013
Pros: long term job security
Cons: very long hours
The typical work day is ever changing and the ability to respond appropriately is critical. Management must be cognizant of this and be ready to move quickly. Co-workers are generally good employees who work together and are receptive to team concepts. The hardest part of the job was responding to the ever changing situation daily. Much of the day consisted – more... of employee realignment to meet the ever changing needs. The most enjoyable part of the job was opening new plants worldwide and being the primary trainer for the SAP Quality Module to the new users of those plants. – less
