Pros: The 401K, and getting payed weekly.
I enjoyed working at Briggs & Stratton, assembly of the large and small engines and sorting out the parts and putting them in the right place. I enjoyed taking them apart to replace the bad parts and putting them back together.

Worse place I ever worked
assembler (Former Employee), Wauwatosa,WisconsinMarch 29, 2015
Cons: No training, Poor management
This place is a sweat factory.Extremely poor management.They work you like a dog with no gratitude or no no aknowlagement of the effort you put into your job. No training, your just pretty much thrown on to the line and have to figure out what to do and how to keep up with the line on your own.If your lucky to get tools to work with they are are recycled from old parts and constantly break down. People walk off the line in the middle of their shift, or leave and don't come back after break.Many of the temps don't even bother to come back the next day.I have never seen such a turn over of people any place I've worked. Over all the worst place I've ever worked and I was shocked at the way they run those lines.

OPERATOR (Current Employee), Murray, KYMarch 2, 2015
Pros: decent pay
Cons: low advancement rate, low communication, poor percentage of part time/full time
I work at Briggs and Stratton through a temp agency. I was not informed until after I was hired that the paperwork that I filled out at the Brigg's office was not for a Brigg's position. This lack of communication appears to filter down through certain supervisors and managers.

Nice experience
Receiving and Plant Warehouse Facilitator (Current Employee), McDonough, GADecember 17, 2014
Pros: autonomy to make changes
Cons: selling change to long-tenured employees
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here but the operation is closing.

A typical work day will start with a group meeting with my team where I communicated all needed information for the day. What I learned here is while the product we assemble becomes familiar, each day has it's own unique challenges.

My salaried counterparts were all long-tenured employees and this created friction as they were accustomed to "we've always done it this way," and I feel that this attitude is a recipe for failure. So the hardest part of my job was to implement change. After awhile my group became an easy sell and this gave me more power to initiate, maintain, and benefit from needed changes plant wide.

When management developed confidence in my abilities my team and I was able to change processes to support all phases of the plant operations. These changes reduced downtime due to part shortages, created better inventory control and accuracy, and used a JIT approach to supporting assembly.

The most enjoyable part of my job was using my transportation experience to overhaul the local shuttle operation by renegotiating the contract, bringing in a new vendor/agent, and directing better use of the equipment which resulted in 1.2 million in transportation and operational savings.

It's not a bad place to work
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee), Statesboro, GADecember 8, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: poor pay
A typical day in this place is noisy. Management is not that bad. Learned a lot from working in this factory. The people out on the shop floor are great. The hardest part of the job is coming in to work. They do need to see about increasing the pay. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people.

warehouse, work through the week and off on the weekend
loader/ unloader/ assembly (Former Employee), McDonough, GANovember 19, 2014
Pros: starting pay was good
Cons: hired as a temp
I worked at Briggs Mon through Fri. I worked part time, and also was hired through a temp service.I worked without any one standing over me. They showed you once and moved on if you understood the job. I liked that. The hardest part was never knowing if that day would be the last for you working there. A typical day was making sure the mowers was built correctly and getting then onto the trucks to be delivered to their next destination.
