I worked at Southern States full-time
Most of the people you'll work with are great.
Company is in major transition at this point, including selling a division and some downsizing. Money is tight and investments in technology are prioritized to those that have a direct, immediate impact on sales and profits.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Southern States (Richmond, VA).
fairly straight forward with the standard questions. Started with HR over the phone and then in person with the actual department heads. walked through my background and then discussed who and what SSC was. There was a time for me to ask them questions and then we finished off with if I was interested and felt I could do the job. I was certain I could and left with them my confidence that I could. The HR portion on the phone was about an hour and then the in person interview was about an hour and half. They used one person (HR) as the point of contact and she was extremely helpful.
