    Spent 33 years dedicating my life and extra time traveling away from Family as asked by management team, got shafted.

    Pros

    Briggs and Stratton use to be a great company with clear vision and dedication to it's employees 9 years ago, not any more!

    Cons

    CEO does not walk the talk that he and the board of directors told the employees. Dedicated employees were never asked how to improve the company. The managers where trained by HR to have crucial conversation with the employees looking for feedback but the management team held the open discussions against it's employees. Example, Warehouse vice president had his employees cancel orders so the back order reporting looked like they had 95% fill rates for domestic and international service parts, no one would listen and he is still at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire back the dedicated employees that have experience and get rid of some of your vice presidents that are not listening to the team. Then get out of the way and let us do what we do well grow the business and sell product and innovate! That is what Briggs and Stratton was founded on.

    nothing to it, questions for every job are the same, interview questions for the most part have nothing to do with the actual job, they usually know who is getting the job before the interviews
