    Pros

    Better than being unemployed. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible micromanaging, no company direction, high turnover rate, low morale amongst employers, "management vs. employee" mentality, no recognition for the good work, management does whatever they can to exert their power over you, in order to move up, you must suck up to management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you appreciate their work, giving them pizza once every six months for working safe is not a good incentive.


  3. Could be a good company except there is no direction. SGS keeps changing their business strategy every 2-3 years.

    Pros

    Can not think of any off hand

    Cons

    Poor employee treatment, poor management, poor pay. They treat their employees like they are all stupid and not truely needed. In fact we were told as such at one time. Poor sales and management direction. Employees are under appreciated and not valued. I have been here for over 15 years. At one time it was run really well and we were treated pretty well, but have not seen that since 2011. They pay you hourly and 40 hours is a rareity, so you are treated like a contractor, and too bad if you didnt make 40 hours. I certainly would not recomend this job to anyone that has to make a fair living or raise a family. Un fortunately I am stuck here due to age restrictions

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your Employees with respect, not like trash. Hire experienced and conciences automotive minded people as inspectors. Better communications, and much better sales force needed.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Overtime. Learning experience. Great for a summer job (June-September).

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay. Management does not communicate well. Drives people through intimidation and greed. Office favoritism and very little chance at advancement. Very poor culture of caring and little positive feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to lead by example. If you want to keep people long-term, treat them with respect and compensate fairly.
