very stressful place to work.
Sr. Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), Richond, VAJuly 11, 2015
Pros: coworkers are great PeopleSoft
Cons: Thinks 4 yeàr degree is better than work experience.
Very stressful work environment. Management over load employees with work, have too many unproductive meetings then wonder why work isn't getting done. Management doesn't have clue about how work is done and there is no coverage when vacation is taken.

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Hampton, GAMarch 15, 2015
Pros: great employees
Cons: small hiring rate
Temporary employment working 40 hours a week assembling high voltage power line conductors, switches, and beams. My responsibilities included reading blueprints, checking to make sure our team has the correct parts before assembly. Once assembly starts I would double check all parts used, where they are placed in assembly, and that the final product was done right the first time and every time until the next order. I was responsible assisting our shift supervisor with any help finding parts, set up and break down of our work station cleaning all tools, tables, and keeping a safe and clean working environment.

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Cleveland, NCDecember 19, 2014
I enjoyed working with real down to earth people and that is the type that work at SS. I have learned a lot about the older and new machinery that runs a feed mill. To know that you and your co-workers are the reason that local farmers get safe and healthy feed to their animals and how the process goes full circle is a real blessing to me. I DO NOT have a bad word to say about the crew at SS and there are many laughs to share with these guys.

Not a good place for a future
SR BILLING (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJune 3, 2014
Pros: no communicate at all, some of employee was friendly
Cons: short break for some, no advancement opportuntity
This wasn't a good place to work at all they were all about themselves didn't care about the employees. Like the former writer wrote back in 2012 layoff people while still hiring at the same time didn't understand that at all give you no reason why they laid you off. No future in this place at all for the young people

Constantly see hiring ad still.

July 7, 2014

They are still hiring like I said they was hiring and laying off at the same time and they do this every four years that why you constantly see hiring ad because they can't keep nobody they laid off people who had 25 years into this company know how does this make them feel laid off and the company is advertising their position constantly seeing ad for the same job you was laid off . No good raises as well
