    I worked at Kohler full-time

    Pros

    mediocre wage - equal to industry standard for the area

    Cons

    Everything! Glassdoor will not allow (remove) a proper review of this Company, Sauk technologies) which is owned by Kohler. They make power generators here. Internal Culture is extremely poisonous. Supervisors lack the knowledge of the machines and skills used to make parts, but you have to go to them when something isnt correct only to be sent to someone who may know. Those people dont know because they dont run your machine or products. They have a written culture of ethics but its just that, written not practiced. Half the workers come from a temp agency, if you are one of those, understand the term "At Will" employment and remain on your guard! Probably the best way I can say it so the post will not get removed. Also understand what the Temp Agency you work for policy is and Kohler/Sauktech because if you ever do bring up a "concern" you could find yourself on the end of a angry phone call with someone saying you have no right to call Human Resources. So again, understand the term "At Wii" more than any handbook or what any person says in a meeting about coming forward with a concern, we dont discriminate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesnt listen and dont care so why take the time to enter anything here. Its a manufacturing company that makes tons of dollars on manufacturing. They should follow their policies and and cfocus more on the Life, Balance part of thee Work - Life - Balance spiel on the wall.
