    I worked at Seed Staffing (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co workers were great, get to test drive new vehicles like 3 times a year and it was cool working at the Ren Cen downtown.

    Cons

    Where to start?

    You're lured in with a "marketing", "community manager" or "social media marketing" cover, but really you're just reading complaints about GM vehicles for 8 hrs/day.

    You're told it's a great stepping stone towards getting hired into GM with marketing/advertising, but you go on to be a glorified version of this position at a dealership in the middle of nowhere.

    $14/hour is a joke for anyone with a college degree (required).

    Raises only exist if you threaten to leave or are persistent.

    Schedules are based on a terrible metric that doesn't gauge whether you're actually a good worker or not.

    When you're new or if you're "not performing" as well as others, chances are you'll work nights and weekends.

    Since management is hired into GM, most of them are on power trips.

    The work is mind numbing.

    You're kept out of the loop on everything.

    Extremely strict about time management (which isn't wrong, but they take it too far).

    You reprimanded/let go for no reason at all.

    Turnover is super high due to the above. 0/10 don't work here unless you're desperate for money.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself. Just because you have a blue badge and make 10k more/year doesn't mean you're god's gift to General Motors. You waste so much time training new people because people leave to find real careers, not a job.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Seed Staffing in August 2014.

    Interview

    The process was easy going, they bring you up to their social media floor and make you feel at ease. The interview is generally with two of the bosses, one advisor and a Seed representative. They ask you basic questions about your history, but also ask about your social media knowledge. They go through their process and have you sit with an advisor to give you more detail, who also has a say in your hiring. Overall it's a low key and low stress environment.
