I have been working at Southern States full-time (More than a year)
Easy going company culture and low stress environment. Currently providing me with financial assistance and flexibility to pursue a master's degree.
Recently went though restructuring and downsizing. This is a cooperative owned company, so pay is lower than at for profit businesses of similar size.
Advice to Management
Better explain shifts in business focus and progress the business is making towards that ends.
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.
