Why It’s Right For Me


See what other Independent Contractors have to say about why this is the right fit for them.


“I have been working with SFS for nearly 2 years now. I am a mother of 2 boys, wife of a veteran, and was going to school full time while working 2 part-time jobs. Finding a company that is willing to work around your schedule is difficult, however SFS was there to save the day for me. I have done other contracting positions, but by far SFS has been the best to work for.”

– Tabitha L, Olympia, WA


“As a full-time student, being an IC offers the ability to work when I have free time and breaks during my classes. I heard about SFS through a family member. After looking into it, I thought it would be a great job while in school. I still enjoy it to this day, and even with a new schedule every semester, this job still fits in perfect.”

– John D, Bentonville, AR


“I have been working as an independent (Assembly) Contractor with SFS for about 3 years. I’ve found it to be very refreshing and freeing. I have the ability to set and arrange my own schedule within the boundaries of given assignment windows. The position has afforded me the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of personalities (SFS, retail managers, in-store crews and in-home customers) and build relationships that will serve me well in the future. Overall, my experience has been a fulfilling one.”
