Intern Life at GMS

by Alexis LevyJuly 19, 2016 8:00 AM

You always hear intern horror stories of Randy the errand runner, Carlin the coffee-getter, solitude Sally, bossy Becky, moody Mandy, lazy Larry, and sob story Serena. But not many have heard or met supportive and studious Sara, reliable and radiant Rafael, or ambitious and adaptable Alexis. 

We are the three interns here at GMS. As a PEO, GMS is not like most companies. A PEO… what is that? Not many have heard of a professional employer organization because it’s unique to the business world, special in a sense that it helps small to mid-size businesses save time and money.

How I Went from Pumping Gas to a GMS Internship

by Rafael CalzadaJuly 14, 2016 8:00 AM

I’ve never worked in an office before. For so many summers, all I did was work the typical jobs you’d expect from a kid in high school. Swim clubs, gas stations; my summers were reminiscent of Dante’s life from the 1994 movie Clerks, complete with me saying more than just once or twice, “I’m not even supposed to be here today!”  

I grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania, but was born in Cleveland. Upon graduation, I took a note from LeBron and decided to come home. I’m currently going into my senior year at Cleveland State, and this summer I decided to change things. I figured it was time to leave the lifeguard stands and gas pumps behind in Smallville and get myself an office internship. That’s how I found GMS.

A New Record Set for Regulations

by Andrew SzczesniakFebruary 2, 2016 8:00 AM

Oftentimes, when a two-term President is entering into the last year of his presidency, he can become a lame duck. His issues don’t get addressed by a congress whose members are worrying about their own re-election. Some begin doing victory laps for their last seven years. Some are dealing with scandals while others are just trying to ride it out without any more problems. Any thoughts of the current office holder being one of those went out the door in 2015.

According to a recent article from the NFIB , President Obama’s administration broke a regulatory record in 2015 by adding over 82,000 pages of regulations to the Federal Register. 545 pages of those deal directly with small businesses. Among those regulations are things like the easing of restrictions on unionization, the changes in minimum wage laws, and the NLRB’s attempts to expand the boundaries of the National Labor Relations Act. All of these have been addressed in my blogs before.

PEOs can help small business owners stay compliant with regulations.
