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.

Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee), Murray, KYNovember 20, 2014
Pros: free snacks, getting along with everyone

Typical Day, Stayed working with machines building headers with groups of people to get the job done

Learned, To be an Machine Operator, to build headers an Mowers, working with others make a great difference.

Management, Worked with you if you were having trouble, joked with you, great people even helped out fixing the machines

Co workers, Got along – more... great, we could have a converstation and still get the job done with no problems.

Hardest part of job, coming into work with no sleep, its rough

The most enjoyable part of the job was actually catching on pretty quick and moving up to a better position. – less

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 – more... correctly and getting then onto the trucks to be delivered to their next destination. – less

Not a bad place to work, with good atmosphere & good people
Set-up Mentor (Former Employee), Murray, KYOctober 16, 2014
Pros: i had a very good supervisor that i respected very much.
Cons: the negativity from some people
To come in, get our job assignments & information from previous shift. I've learned through the to be a team player, always knowing what the other person is going to do. I've worked well with others in a team atmosphere. The hardest part of any a job is when I've several things going on at 1 time & trying to keep thing in order. The most enjoyable part – more... of my job is when I succeed in getting all work accomplished & everybody is happy & satisfied with end results. – less

Customer Service Rep. Contractor (Former Employee), Wauwatosa, WIOctober 12, 2014
making calls to potential electricians on a daily base. I learned a lot about Briggs and Stratton and how they operate their business. The management was ok. Co-workers very laid back. The hardest part of the job was convincing electrician to be come dealers for the company. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to explain the program to – more... my customers to where they understood what was being asked of them. – less

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
