It was an exciting and diverse work experience.
entry level (Former Employee), south miami blvd,durham ncJuly 27, 2015
Pros: the card to pay us worked and pay was ontime and if not they corrected it.
A typical day at SOS staffing was good.The coffee was ready and people greeted one another and staff was ready to give us our assigned stations and also helped us with clocking in without making it awkward.I would work there again.

Good for those starting out in the workforce.
Security Officer (Former Employee), Omaha, NEJuly 6, 2015
SOS LLC was a great introduction to the world of full time work in a fast paced corporate environment. The pay was decent for a starting wage but still not enough to live on. The supervisors could be a bit pushy about overtime especially when you had engagements you couldn't miss such as classes. Both leading managers were great to work for.

This is a contract company
Assistant Inventory Coordinator (Former Employee), Bloomfield, NMJune 8, 2015
Although this position was contract, SOS Staffing did provide me with employment within a the first week. I liked that the company didn't send me out to interviews where I would fail.

Good paying job, but not very observant staff members.
General Laborer (Former Employee), Brigham City, UTMay 14, 2015
Pros: Good pay
Cons: Staff members unobservant, bad hours.
When I filed my application for a job opening they had available, I included my background within. After working for Autoliv for 10 months, they attempted to hire me on full time, but was instead fired. They claimed I had lied on my application and didn't include my background info. I was fired over petty things I got in trouble for several years prior.

The job they provided me itself, however, was good paying. However I generally worked Monday-Sunday, 2 pm-10 pm. Once in a while I would get a day off during the week.

Left field
Staffing Manager (Former Employee), Homer City, PAApril 17, 2015
When I started with this company I was told several things and none of them really followed through. In the short period of time I was there I had 3 different managers over me but I was the only employee they had in my branch and none of them made the time to come to my branch on a regular basis. I was left there to do things on my own with no real guidance of what to do. This was my first staffing job and I don't feel that I was trained very well. This made me not feel comfortable in my position or enjoy my job.

Don't hope for permanent placement
Production Associate (Former Employee), Brigham City, UTMarch 13, 2015
Pros: good pay, good hours
Cons: having to take coveralls off to eat lunch and to go outside
Typical Day:

Arrive early for meeting at the beginning of shift before change-over. Met with person running the line I was assigned for the night. Verbal exchange of line's activities. Cleaned machines. Replaced slurries, tubing, water, and oil buckets. Swept and cleaned around machines. Called machines in to dispatch if they needed to be fixed.

What I learned:

How to make explosive initiators for – more... air bags. Also, that if you are working for SOS Staffing/Autoliv do not expect to be hired on to the actual company if you can be claimed high risk for insurance purposes. If you are "too much of a liablilty" they won't hire you. But get this: They will keep you working at the same job, doing the same thing, for as long as you want to work for the temporary service.

Management:

They're okay. Pretty much just come and observe or get people back to doing what they're suppose to be doing.

Co-workers:

Very cooperative. Help each other out to meet quota if possible.

Hardest part of job:

Trying not to fall asleep babysitting machines until their rotation comes around. Not being able to listen to music to keep you going.

Most enjoyable part of job:

Weekly paychecks. – less
