    I worked at SOS Employment Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people were outstanding to work with. Took away some great relationships

    Cons

    The quality of management went down, when the decision to sell, set in. Heard it has slipped since the sale to Elwood, and not a big competitor any longer. It is all about the people, people!

    Advice to Management

    Hire quality, and keep them

    Very flexible and want to help find you work. Great place to find temp work and possible move up through individual employers

    Being in a small town makes it hard to find temp jobs, and there doesnt seem to be a lot of communication beween the company and its employees

    Under new management since i last worked there so not sure what advise to give, other than to keep communication between people.

    I worked at SOS Employment Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many wonderful things about what WAS SOS Employment Group. However, all that remained of their vision following the Elwood take-over were their great people. Unfortunately, they are dwindling daily.

    They are now owned by Elwood Staffing

    Advice to Management

    They will not take it and have no interest in any feedback from their employees
