    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Briggs & Stratton (Wauwatosa, WI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had done a phone interview with Briggs & Stratton. They had initially sounded very interested in me and wanted to invite me to do an in-person interview. I didn't hear from them in about 2 weeks, then did another phone interview with someone else at the company. They had set up an in-person interview with me, then canceled only 1 hour before the interview. I had set up another day to do an interview, and then was canceled on again and told that they had found someone better suited for the role.
