More than a job, joining BFG is like becoming a part of a family. We're a tight-knit group that values the collective whole.

After signing on, BFGers often experience a mental "click" followed by a sigh of relief and then some time spent pondering whether or not they were raised by wolves and nearly destined to live life without finding their true "pack".We hear that a lot.
