Interview at ESG Automotive

Can anyone tell me more about this company? Is it a glorified staffing/contract house or is it good working at different customer locations on a project basis? Seems like many people and jobs posted are in Dearborn. Thank you in advance for any info.

Don't expect a long-term job at Ford
