    I have been working at SGS full-time

    Pros

    Company allows you to work from home and receive work daily in your computer. Because of the size and industries the company owns, you can train for other industries such as oil and gas with a better chance of getting better opportunity.

    Cons

    Some inspectors are assigned to large geographical areas. Much work is at a dealership with very little inside, so you must be prepared for the weather all the time. You can waste a lot of time trying to get keys from dealerships. Hard to get in touch with dispatch during busy hours. Slow times you may have hours cut. During busy times you don't have a life.

    Advice to Management

    Give Inspectors more options with territories, training and positions.

  8. "Do not practice what they preach."

    I worked at SGS full-time

    Pros

    -The job itself,
    -overtime, reimbursement
    - no office, mainly travel from place to place

    Cons

    -the company. Mainly the higher up decision makers,

    Advice to Management

    They preach a code of conduct, but don't adhere to it themselves. Slimy, strategic ways that will screw employees but keep themselves smiling and looking good on paper with misleading misinformation. Didn't realize this actually went on, felt taken advantage of after working there. From reports and from higher ups was told everything is absolutely great and better than ever, than hours later the company has no work. Bonus letters sent out months prior, all post dated with the next days date. Definition of Shiesty
