The BOSS Group – Why Work For Us?

The BOSS Group is an award-winning creative staffing firm for creative, marketing and digital talent. We’ve been supplying temporary, temp-to-hire, direct hire and managed services solutions to leading organizations across virtually every industry sector for 28 years. 

The BOSS Group has local offices in many major metropolitan areas such as Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., but serve clients nationally.

The BOSS Group is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise and a member of the BLR Holdings, Inc. family of companies.

The BOSS Group was founded in 1988 by Linda Wein and Rossi Bonugli, two principals of a graphics production house. They relied on part-time staff to support ebbs and flows in their design business and then sought to help those staffers find other employment when not needed at their shop. Envisioning that other organizations could benefit from a trusted source for well-qualified temporary staff, they founded BOSS Temps (now The BOSS Group) to focus exclusively on human capital solutions for the creative profession.

Since then, The BOSS Group has grown into a leading creative staffing expert with offices throughout the United States. Still, our focus remains on advocating the creative professional by sourcing qualified interactive, creative and marketing talent for employers and by helping the creative professional secure a steady stream of work.

The company attributes its many successes to a strict focus on creative staffing and adherence to its values: employee centricity, service excellence, entrepreneurial spirit and passionate performance.

    I have been working at The BOSS Group full-time


    The Boss Group has a family like feel to the company. Even though I work in one office I know a lot of other employees in other states working one another. Great leadership and vision for the company.


    The BOSS Group could improve their overall training. This could help streamlines best practices, which is an area for improvement.

    Associate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The BOSS Group (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.


    Very thorough process, yet all made me feel at ease and welcomed. There were great questions, yet they weren't trick questions, they genuinely wanted to get to know me and discover if I was the right fit. I went through a phone screening with the recruiter, followed by a phone screening with my immediate boss, and an in-person interview with the person my boss reports to. The progression was natural and allowed me to learn more about the company, and also validated my interest in the company.
