    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at SGS (Orlando, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Some questions about my resume, tour of facilities. Very basic. No discussion about salary should've been a warning sign about how low their pay is. Everyone was nice enough, though I didn't feel like they were all that happy.

    Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at SGS in March 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted through contract company for interview at lab location, no details were given to me before interview except contract hourly pay and hours. Lab tour first then interview with 3 managers. They asked a few basic technical questions based off my chemistry internship experience, then it got kinda quiet so before it got awkward I started asking questions about the work environment and training process. They must have liked my initiative because I got a call back the next week to start asap.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiations available - contract to hire is flat rate. No matter your experience your job title determines your pay.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SGS (Saint Rose, LA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I did not have an official interview because I had worked for them before; my phone interview only gauged a few softball questions about current status. It was easy to determine from their questions why they were losing employees regularly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at SGS in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and an interview was set up via email. On the day of the interview, the recruiter never called or answered my phone call or responded with a follow-up to my email. I understand an emergency could occur but please have someone follow-up with me after a few days.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer never called on the date they said they would call. I called and emailed and the interviewer never responded. I still don't know what happened and why they cancelled it without calling or emailing me. I was disappointed they never followed up. I saved the email so I know I had the information correct for the interview date and time.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SGS (Washington, DC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone call with "recruiter". Not very knowledgeable. She sounded rushed and didn't know much about the car business or how inspections went. She read from a script and couldn't answer any of my initial questions but said someone would be able to if i made it to the next step. Not a good feeling from anyone or any part of it.
