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 30 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 (Less than a year)


    I have been in the recruiting industry for a while but feel like I have finally found my "home" with The Boss Group. I cannot speak highly enough about the culture, colleagues, management or recruitment/sales relationship here. You are truly fulfilled in your job and the opportunity to earn big money is real (no fluff work, pointless tasks, etc). Unlimited PTO, fun work culture and 3pm Fridays are just added bonuses!


    No real cons at this time

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The BOSS Group (Washington, DC) in February 2019.


    I applied online, and a few weeks later I got an email from a recruiter wanting to set up a call. From the call they informed me of the position, and set me up an interview the beginning of the following week. After the interview I heard back from the company the next day. Next began the onboarding process which can take up to about 3 days, depending on how fast you complete everything.
