    I worked at SGS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gated parking lot and large restrooms.

    Cons

    No bonuses. No pay raise in last 5 years. People are quitting like crazy. At one point there wasnt enough staff to cover the shifts. Very high turn-over. By the time you finish training someone they are sick of the way the company and managers treat them and they quit. They do not keep anything private. You will find out who gets fired or written up 2-3 days in advance!!! There is too much mess, backstabbing, gossip, and trouble. Don't get me started on the amount of accidents that have occurred and the integrity of the results reported. If you do decide to work here make sure you ask exactly for the money you want or x5 more, because you will get it because no one wants to work here.They hire people with no experience because no one is willing to work here or stay long enough before they have time to fill another position. Doesn't matter how much you get paid you not be able to endure the way things work around here. Someone threaten to come to work and blow up the facility because he was too stressed about the job. Everyone was scared!!

    Advice to Management

    Give Raises. Make employees feel appreciated and maybe the turn over will not be so high. Fire the assistant managers and maybe people will be a little Happier. Also, teach the managers how to talk to the employees, stop being rude, and spreading mess around the workplace.
