Services Group is expanding its Northwest Arkansas operation to better serve the region’s growing employment needs.

Volt Services Group offers on-site personnel to manage and provide services in technical fields, such as graphic arts, chemists and light industrial work. Sherie Schneidewind, branch manager, says Volt’s fee for providing temporary and full-time employees is based on the liability of the job’s workman’s compensation classification.

She says Volt does thorough screening in several specific areas.

“Just for word processing, we check words per minute [a minimum of 40], spelling, error factor and office software test,” Schneidewind says. “We try to cover everything from the basic functions to the high-end functions.”

‘Volt recently opened another branch in Siloam Springs and plans to open offices in Rogers, Little Rock, Fort Smith and Tulsa, Schneidewind says.

“One of our larger contracts is in Siloam Springs. So the new office is just a way to better that area,” She says. “Right now, we service Rogers, the whole area, out of Springdale. Nationwide, we have over 240 offices.”

Volt also has its own search and retrieval system, VSG-Gold, that matches applicant’s skills with the customer’s open position.
