GREAT PLACE TO WORK!!!
HR Coordinator (Current Employee), Freeport, TXJuly 16, 2014
Pros: family feel work environment, promoting from within & feeling appreciated for the job you do for them!
Cons: i honestly haven't found a single con.
Company treats employees extremely well, really values staff & always promotes from within before looking outside when needed. Starting pay for all positions is good & our Warehouse Tech's start at $15.50, which is amazing for the area in Freeport! It's refreshing to work somewhere & have praise given to you & be rewarded for your hard work on a regular – more... basis. I love it! – less

High Turn over Mediocure Training and managment
Railcar Switchman/Wash Rack (Former Employee), Plaquemine, LouisianaMay 13, 2014
Pros: all the over time you want
Cons: bad training, long hours
I applied for this company not knowing what I was getting myself into, good thing I had a backup job. They hired me as a switchman, it took them almost 4 days just to do the training videos because the guy who was suppose to train me kept getting phone calls every 5 min and he stopped. It got so bad I was waiting in his office for 2 hours waiting on – more... him. The work wasn't bad but the management sucks, instead of doing switchman work they put me in the washrack instead. Make sure when your hired on make it clear to them that's the job you want to do. The turnover rate at Dow Chemical is so high they can never keep employees and I see why. – less

High Turnover Rate!!!!
loader (Former Employee), baton rougeApril 27, 2014
Pros: they will hire anyone
Cons: don't stop the job search while working there
I was told by the supervisor he hates black people my first day on the job. My wife is black and so is my daughter. You always hear about the most recent fire a couple of days ago and the trainers feel like they have the right to yell at you during your training period. You will be forced to work a schedule that consists of 30 days straight. No work – more... and life balance at all. – less

There is a great sense of camaraderie among all of the employees, and it makes going to work everyday a pleasure.

Communications Director (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LAFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: matching 401(k) plan, short & long-term disability coverage
After working for SGS Petroleum Service Corporation for more than 12 years as a self-employed consultant, I recently decided to come on board full-time because I believe this growing company has a very bright future. Here are a few things I like about working for SGS PSC:

1) The company has many employees with 30+ years of experience. That's something – more... you don't see often today.
2) A number of the supervisors and managers SGS PSC has today came in at the ground level and have advanced and grown with the company.
3) The company has a "family feel" but can also offer great benefits and other advantages of a big company because it is a part of The SGS Group.
4) Good work is appreciated and recognized. – less

Uncultured and Close Minded
Wash Rack Technician (Former Employee), Hahnville, LAAugust 6, 2013
Pros: days off
Cons: the people
A Typical Day at work was listening to people complain about each other 24/7 and then smile in their faces when they walked in the door.

The management is completely insubordinate. Its all about who you know, and how fake your smile is.

The hardest part of the job was showing up knowing everyone hstes everyone.

The most enjoyable part of the job – more... was badging out of the gate. – less

Tankerman 2200 group. (Former Employee), Texas/louisianaJuly 23, 2013
Pros: as long as you do your job, you will be left alone and paid well.
Cons: the insurance benefits keep going up and up. seems like it should be looked into.
Great place to work.

Dock operators could be paid a little more that they are paid.

Inspectors work way too hard for the money they make.

The tankerman group would be the best bet for anyone wanting a career with Sgs. The training is high but you get what you pay for.

It's a rotating door for tankermen who have been trained by other groups. They – more... just don't have the proper training or they can't comply with Sgs high standard. – less

Terrible management
TCA (Former Employee), New OrleansJuly 9, 2013
Pros: a free baseball cap.
Cons: trying to accomplish or coordinate anything.
TCA
SGS - Baton Rouge, LA
Applied for the TCA training at a ridiculous cost of $12,990. After more than a month of scheduling appointments to comply with there check list ( in which numerous mistakes were made, even giving out the wrong times, addresses, or even a complete void of pertinent information). It was amazing that a company established in1952 – more... is so completely unorganized in a technical training program they operate two times per year. So after completing all of the interviews, physical, checklists, and even surpassing there requests to equip through my own initiative they let me go on a slight technicality that there office controls. Months wasted, go to the maritime school in Texas or Alabama, with 10 transfers and one week of classes you can receive the same license. So unless your a robot or cloned drone good luck with that inept managed company. They talk about their corporate spiel of family and integrity in reality it's quite the opposite there self themed motto should be no communication and scapegoating. – less

Loader III Operator (Current Employee), Pasadena TxJune 28, 2013
Pros: two-three off days in a row. more opportunity for overtime
Cons: working from sun up to sun down
SGS is an ok place to work. The hours are long, and the worst part is that I have to work outside. The most enjoyable part is the off days where I can spend time with my family.

Management was absolutely terrible
Railcar Unloader (Former Employee), Chalmette, LAApril 15, 2013
Pros: decent pay for the work you were doing.
Cons: the work environment and crew is terrific
The time I worked with SGS PSC, me and everyone else on the crew quickly learned that everyone was trying to screw you over. All upper management is extremely phony and will pretend to be your closest friend, but won't hesitate to try and get you in trouble. The work wasn't hard at all, but the managers always made the job way harder than it is. We – more... would do the work very safely and very efficiently, but it was never enough.We were always lied to and they all pick favorites. Everyday, whenever our supervisor would have a speech, the entire crew would just listen and try not to laugh at all the lies we were being told. The job would not be bad at all if it wasn't for the supervisor. – less
