Purchasing Assistant / Dispatcher (Current Employee), McDonough, GA – July 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, GA – July 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, WI – July 1, 2014
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

!2 hour shift starting at 5:45 A.M. until 6:00m P.M. Learned different aspects of making small engines. Management was good. Coworkers were fun to work with. Hardest part of the job was preparing the parts for the next stage they were going to. Most enjoyable was the other employees
Operator (Former Employee), Murray, KY – February 13, 2014
Although my time here was brief, it was beneficial in that it was like an alternate form of Amazon. The only real difference was that you were working on a "line" workstation in my branch. It's good experience particularly in the Murray, KY area.
