    I worked at SOS Employment Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers, support from home office is great, excellent company culture, best screened employees (not staff) in the area, competitive products to offer to clients

    Cons

    Where to start? Company seems to hire family or friends over QUALIFIED/EXPERIENCED applicants for staff positions. RVP comes around once a quarter, and considers this "leading the branch." Expected to work 24/7 and answer all calls while on vacation. Unfair commissions if type of business is not "our branch" specialty (lost commissions on over $2M in sales). Company does not seem to appreciate what staff does for it, and will replace any non-friend/family with family/friend that will work for a lower rate of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Just learn to be FAIR to your staff, and compensate them for the good work they do.

    Pros

    As long as management is making money your position is safe. Which is typical of any business. Decent benefit package

    Cons

    Management will look for reasons to write you up once revenue starts to slip. Never had a write up in my career until SOS. Write was for not providing a Doctors note for missing 1 day of work. Company policy states after 3 days you need a doctors note. Prior to missing the 1 day, I had NO call offs, AND I let the supervisor know I was not going to make it in to work due before 7am on the day I missed

    Advice to Management

    When you have 6 employees get fired by one manager you may have a problem with the manager. Average tenure at the branch I worked at was 2 years. After that time the manager will find a reason to let you go.
