Briggs & Stratton Co.
Final Assembly (Current Employee), Murray, KYSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: bi-annually productivity check given in february as well as august, if we manufactured over productivity for the week we got a 45 minute lunch
Cons: lunch usually 30 min, healthcare system not so great which was definitely a down fall, 10 minute breaks were only given twice an evening.
I really enjoyed working at Briggs & Stratton Co. for many years throughout my collegian career. Going for a bachelors degree in Marketing/Sales I never would have thought I would have learned as much as I know now about manufacturing small lawn mower engines. For being a college student and going to class all day as well as working 2nd shift at a plant – more... was very tough but on the same token Briggs & Stratton took care of their Murray State University students as well with descent pay and flexibility around your hours between studying, class, and working. A typical day at work for me consists of ensuring proper engine maintenance and record keeping for improper engines as well as the responsibility correcting shortages and customer change-over's were taken care of professionally. As goes for management, they were great and were always there for me if I needed anything as well as my co-workers. I would consider them family how close we have became in the last few years and i'm proud to say that! The hardest part of my job was by far working on my feet on the concrete all night long with an aching back will eventually catch up with you over the long run as well as flipping engines over while I have a college degree in marketing and sales and would absolutely be grateful to be given an opportunity to succeed in what I'm great at. – less

It was alright working at Briggs and Stratton but the only thing I didn't like was the the other people who worked there longer than got away with everything with no consequences.

Purchasing Assistant / Dispatcher (Current Employee), McDonough, GAJuly 23, 2014
I have enjoyed my time with Briggs and Stratton. I have not been happy with the compensation or benefit side of things for a long time though. The plant announced that it was closing two weeks ago. It is better sweet, I like the job but I know I need to get out there and really be compensated for the level of work I do.

Assembler, Stack-off, Tester (Current Employee), McDonough, GAJuly 1, 2014
I've learned main new production skills working here well new engineering skills.A typical day at work can go from smooth to rough in a matter of minutes. Due to one missed part down to a simple sticker being placed wrong. The most enjoyable part of working here is everyone lends a helping hand when its needed.

Great reputation and great company to have listed on your resume.
Graphic Services Account Representative (Former Employee), Wauwatosa, WIJuly 1, 2014
Pros: vacation
Cons: stagnant mid-level leadership
I was honored to be hired by B&S given their reputation. The benefits are great. This is a great organization to start in but they are stuck in their old habits. You have a large demographic of people whom have been with the organization for 20+ years and are unwilling to embrace new opportunities, despite the direction being given from the top! If – more... you're looking for a place to get your start as a professional or just want to skate by this is a perfect opportunity. But if you're looking for a workplace where your ideas are heard and tried and you're given an opportunity to apply your skillset in real situations they don't like risk here! – less
