I do not know what state you are in but in many states, service at place of work is legal if that is the only place the person can be found.

State is MT, though I'm still searching for specifics here. I believe I did find something in general on this just now where it can be left with a management level employee, thanks for the response. 


also this:



Upon an individual other than an infant or an incompetent person, by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to the individual personally or by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to an agent authorized by appointment or by law to receive service of process, provided that if the agent is one designated by statute to receive service, such further notice as the statute requires shall be given.

Did the defendant receive the papers from the Sheriff personally?

If yes, then generally, personal service can be made ANYWHERE.  It can be made at a coffee shop, last known residence, place of employment, Walmart, etc.
