Very customer focused company.
Director (Former Employee), Appleton, WIMarch 18, 2014
Oshkosh Corp is 100% dedicated to their customers. Not speaking for all divisions but the Airport Group that I worked in was one of the best small team of managers I have worked with in my career. Working with people you consider your friends makes the daily rigors much easier to handle.

I've done more difficult work for less money
Certified 201 Assembler (Former Employee), Oshkosh DefenseMarch 18, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: union and company don't respect one another
I have done more difficult work for less money. Too much drama from local union leadership, and too many unkept promises from management make it a trying place to work safely. However the pay was outstanding. Promise of new work never happened,

If you are a lemon
Logistics (Current Employee), Oshkosh, WIFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: you have a job
Cons: not for long
You are given the ability to work as hard as you want. When you slow down they will replace you. If you are smart you will leave before they use you all up.

Strategic Purchasing Intern (Former Employee), Oshkosh, WIFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: pay, product
Cons: unable to form relationships, lack of compassion, lack of recognition
I enjoyed working for Oshkosh Corporation. It is an amazing business and the products that are manufactured are top-of-the-line. Issues arise however with tremendous amounts of turn-around. Employees are often running 12+ hours/day and there is a lack of recognition. I was unable to make many lasting relationships because every couple months, there – more... seemed to be a complete wash and replace in the positions around me. I enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, but in order to be successful, you need a team of well-versed, connected employees. – less

As the saying goes, 'We make trucks, not sense'
Hourly Worker (Former Employee), OshkoshJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: week off in july, 10+ days off for x-mas, goal bonuses, wages, benefits
Cons: forced vacation for july shut down, unreasonable egotistical management
A typical day at work was never typical. Anything could change day to day - be it a floor plan, new manager, termination, displacement, equipment, etc

The priorities are in this order: 1) Cleanliness - production will halt to sweep and dust, no joke. 2) Production - Just do it and dont ask questions. 3) Safety - i recall multiple times when my safety – more... was compromised and i was told to keep working. Then, when you get hurt, they dicipline you. 10) Quality - its shocking when trucks are supposed to be finished and you cant shut doors, check engine lights are on, steering wheels jostle, wiper blades arent aligned. We put out some real garbage for our service men and women. But, somehow the 'warfighters' still say we make the best trucks.

Most co-workers were great to work with, some were snitches and some were downright weird.

Management is awful. They never want to listen to your suggestions. They cant or wont get you the necessary gear(like winter jackets, gloves, flashlights). They pay way too much for everything just to throw it away for 'cleaning' then buy it back when they realized they needed it. Its a constant struggle trying to reason with management. Not to mention they treat you like criminals. Its like they think everyone is up to no good. If it weren't for management this would be the near perfect employer.

The hardest part is trying to be passionate about your work and management says 'good enough, its not going to the moon'.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with badass, 5 axle, 4 axle steering, 50,000lb off-road military trucks! Oh, and the pay and benefits. – less

Careful about politics and culture
Manager (Current Employee), Oshkosh, WIJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: products and purpose
Cons: culture and management
There are politics in every organization, always. I must say that I have never seen an organization where people are so fearful, it forces them to look out for themselves. People you think you can trust you can find out too late they are only using your trust to benefit and protect themselves. Employees survive there either keep their heads down or – more... are good are using/attacking others to make themselves look better. Really too bad because there are good people there and their products are meaningful. – less

Overall Oshkosh is behind the times
Request not to offer title (Former Employee), Dodge Center, MNDecember 18, 2013
Pros: work life balance was good.
Cons: benefits were terrible. vacation and days off were non-existent.
Oshkosh Management has just this year started to roll out a corporate wide QMS and OS. There is discontinuity between business segments and even within locations inside of a business unit. The focus is on getting production numbers above all else.
The benefits offered were worse than a mom and pop shop. The vacation or paid time off (PTO) policy was – more... a joke. You had to either beg for days off or you just took off and did not report it. – less

Upper Management was poor at best! Safety Enviroment was poor!!!
Assembler/Prep and Trim (Former Employee), Oshkosh, WINovember 14, 2013
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: product means more than your safety and wellness!
The Pay and Benefits are Good. The Safety program is retroactive. The management was young and inexperienced and not very accommodating to suggestions. Human Resources is very unprofessional and unorganized. Co workers were helpful but the more senior they were the less helpful and/or caring they were.
