As a recent college graduate down on their last hope for employment, I
resorted to Opti Staffing Agency in hopes of a chance to find a company
that I can grow within and provide the flexibility I needed to continue
my education. To my luck, I was able to interiew with Taryn Adams and
it was nothing short of a warm welcome and a mutual understanding about
the harsh reality of finding a job that offered the opprotunities I was
looking for. Taryn Adams was very understanding and straight to the
point when it came to seeking full-time positions that were compatible
to my background. I was able to interview with companies within the
same week I spoke with Taryn, and for the first time in a long time I
had the option to choose from a list of companies that were actually
interested in meeting with me! I am now with a small family-owned
company that I've grown to love. It is because of Taryn's superb
efforts and compassion that I am in the position that I'm in today. I
no longer judge temp agencies as places that send people to jobs that
are unfit and impossible to maintain. If anyone is in need of a job
where they can excel within and live the lifestyle they hope to
maintain outside of work, I will refer them to Opti Staffing Agency
without any reservation.
Opti is providing a very thorough pre screening process on all
candidates presented to us.
We are very happy with the service provided by Opti and will use them again
for our future placement needs.
I highly recommend Opti Staffing to any candidates seeking
employment. I have been working with the team here in Tacoma, WA off
and on since 2004 whenever I am seeking new/different employment, and they
are a highly professional and work hard for candidates and employers.
Highly recommended ... A++. Thanks Megan, Sarah, Liz and the

I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Taryn
Adams and the team at Opti Staffing. Taryn is exceptionally adept in
finding the perfect job for any candidate. I am elated with my new position
and foresee many years of opportunity and growth. I am so glad I put
my trust in Opti Staffing, because it has certainly paid off.
Thank you, Taryn!
You were one of the few recruiters who came to my aid when I needed
them. You showed a sincere interest in what I was looking for and you kept
me updated. Most other agencies apparently don't think informing an
applicant is as important as you do. Hopefully I won't need the services of
a recruiting firm but if I do, you and Opti Staffing will be the first
place I go.
As for the company where I was placed, the people are very nice and it
is a congenial working atmosphere. My branch manager is giving me more
responsibility now that he sees what I am capable of. I only hope that he
will consider taking me on as a full-time employee in the near future.
I am sure you already know what a great recruiter/employee/consultant,
Katie Schmidt is. I would like to re- emphasize what a great employee you
have in Katie. Her desire to persevere assisted me in pursuing an employer
that I wasn't sure if I could schedule time to meet with.
I had been to a number of companies, and was sure of receiving an offer
from one of them. I was somewhat reluctant to go on more interviews, but
Katie took extra time to write me a very well thought out e mail explaining
why it would make sense to meet with a particular CPA firm that she had
just established a relationship with.
I went on the first interview and found that I was more interested in
that company compared to any of the others that I had interviewed with. I
was asked back for a second interview with the managing partner and shortly
thereafter, was excited to receive an offer from that CPA firm. I accepted
the offer from that firm, which I believe will become one of the best
career moves I have ever made.
It is the combination of Katie's ability to draw insight from the people
she recruits coupled with her knowledge about what the ultimate customer is
seeking, that gives her a distinct competitive advantage compared to her
peers. Equally important is Katie's drive to persevere, which really sets
Thank you both Chad, and particularly Katie for giving me the
opportunity to succeed in a company and environment that will be best
suited for me.
We will stay in touch.

In my professional experience, follow-up and exemplary
communication are paramount for the retention of clients/customers: a fact
that has led me to shy away from staffing agencies in my recent job
search. My previous experiences with staffing agencies left me
feeling like livestock, inspected for the sole purpose of collecting as
many as possible to then leave to graze until the slaughter. There
was never any element of humanity involved in them. Until I met
Kirsten, they were impersonal, almost deplorable experiences.
Kirsten is a ray of sunshine in a bleak job-hunting world.
Her follow-up is timely and impeccable. If Kirsten says that she will
complete a task, she does. Should Kirsten tell me that she will email
me information, I receive it. In the staffing industry, someone that
shows this level of commitment is a mythical creature. A staffing
Nathan, working with Opti Staffing has been a refreshing
experience and I speak highly of your organization to every fellow
job-hunter that I meet.
Thank you for the fantastic experience and staff that you provide!"
"I just wanted to thank you for the card and the gift. I am sorry I was
unable to meet with you and be able to finally put some faces to the
friendly voices. The funny thing is when you stopped by I was actually
here. I was just in a meeting with all the new hires from you guys! LOL
Thanks again for all your hard work and if projections for next year come
to fruition, we will definitely be talking more!"
"I visited Opti Staffing after leaving a stressful job. I had no idea what
I wanted to do or where I wanted to work, so I didn't have an expectations.
After a meeting with Matt and several phone conversations with Alison, they
placed me in a temp position. It gave me the
time to reconnect with my professional priorities and work in a healthy and
positive environment. Because Alison and Matt gave me such outstanding
professional guidance and reignited my confidence, I strongly recommend
them to anybody searching for a new job or a fresh start in Anchorage. They
shed objective light on your resume and work history to find exactly what
you are looking for. Alison and Matt, thank you!"
"I stumbled upon Opti while searching for work this summer. I had seen
a position they had posted that was full time, but said what the heck and
applied anyway. I was called the next day by Alison who said that although I
did not qualified for the full time position I applied for, she wanted to meet
with me anyways. After my preliminary interview she said that she would contact
me if anything came up. A few days later I called and checked in with her to
see if anything had come up and she unfortunately said no. I started to get
discouraged, but within two hours later she called me back saying that she had
found job for me. Since then I have worked for the company all summer, and just
recently signed a contract to be an Intern this Fall while I finish my
was extremely helpful, I would not be in the position I am today without them.
Many large companies are using
companies to find qualified candidates, and in
is one of the best. Alison and the
followed me all the way through my contract, making sure things were going
well, and the company and I, were happy. Thank you so much
"The Opti Staffing staff performed fantastically. I spent months with
competing agencies such as Account Temps and of course Monster, Career
Builder, and job networks like LinkedIn. Ashley and Laurie looked at my
resume and work profile in great detail. I got a call for an interview with
Opti Staff on a Tuesday and an interview with a company the next morning.
By 4:00pm Opti called me for a morning interview Thursday with the company
President. After a two hour interview I found myself accepted and on a tour
of the company and being assigned a work space. Opti Staffing certianly out
performed their competitors for me!"
"We have been recently using Opti Staffing to fill accounting needs at out
corporate facility, working with Ashleigh Brittian. Ashleigh did a tremendous
job providing only qualified candidates. It took the interviewing process to a
professional level, saving us valuable time. We are so satisfied, both
individuals will be hired on as permanent staff members. I highly recommend
Ashliegh. Thanks for the help in finding these great people."
" I want to thank Korri Kehn and the entire staff at Opti Staffing for the
professional and timely service afforded us. We were very pleased with the
candidates sent to our office, and extremely satisfied with the ultimate person
hired. She is well qualified and certainly has met the qualifications required
and recommendations given by Opti Staffing.
It was a pleasure working with Korri!"
"Thank you so much for your help locating a job that was a great fit for my
skills and background. At first, I thought that Opti wouldn't really be able to
find something in my field considering I specialize in the construction
industry as a civil engineer; but you really surprised me. After only a
week, Opti Staffing Group was able to locate an employer and get me working
within a few days.
I really appreciate the help! You went above and beyond the call of duty on
this one. Keep up the great work."
"Working with the Opti Staffing Group has been a very quick and satisfying
experience. My Opti Staffing Group recruiter, Lauren has been extremely helpful
in my placement into a company and helpful answering questions after placement.
I would recommend Opti Staffing to all prospective job seekers."
"Opti Staffing has really been great. They helped me get a job in less then
a week. They sent me on one interview and that's all it took. I had a job the
very next week. THANK YOU OPTI STAFFING."
"I have had the experience to be one of Benjamin Brunner's candidates
recently through Opti Staffing Group. With the persistence of Benjamin's
efficient line of communication, his ability for detail and strong level of
professionalism he was able to place me within an organization the met both,
needs and expectations for a long-term partnership.
I feel that with Benjamin's effectiveness and hard working ethics, he will
always be a very successful professional in any position he may entertain
within the Opti Staffing Group organization.
It has been a pleasure working with Benjamin and Opti Staffing Group."
"My name is Daniel Vasquez. A short while ago I was diligently looking for a
new full-time career. I had been a fireman for nearly ten years and was injured
on the job. I had a background in the logistics field and was attempting to
start anew in that line of work. I had filled out several applications and
turned in countless resumes; both online and in person. I had some rather
promising prospects when I was contacted by Ben Brunner. He had come across my
resume from an online application I had filled out and contacted me for a
position he was trying to fill. This was my first time trying to find work
through a third-party and I really wasn't sure what to expect. I met with Ben
and found him to be extremely professional. He had informed me of a position
that he thought would be a great fit and had placed me in an interview with the
president of the company the very next day. To my surprise the position was an
exact fit for what I was looking for. In fact it was better in terms of pay
rate, hours, benefits and general duties than anything that I had found on my
own. I am currently still with the company and very happy. Ben made the
daunting task of finding a job (let alone a new career) much, much easier. I
would strongly recommend his services to anyone."

and professional follow up you have provided us over the past few months. Not
only have you professionally searched for and recruited excellent candidates on
our behalf, the preliminary and follow up work has been performed at a level
well above the crowd in both content and quality.
As you surely know, we get inundated by labor assistance companies, most of
whom we would not give the time of day. I can honestly say we are very
favorably impressed with both you personally and by the way Opti Staffing has
serviced our needs as a customer."

"Just a short note to let you know how much we have appreciated your efforts
in our recruiting process. We have found your professionalism and determination
in this process to be exceptional. The line of communication was always open
and you came up with candidates that met or exceeded our expectations. It is a
pleasure working with you."
"OPTI Staffing really took the time to understand our business and its
needs. The staff has toured our facility to understand our business, listened
to our needs, and asked questions for the little details. They have been able
to find qualified candidates for us to interview and hire. We are now on our
third hire from OPTI, we hope to make her a permanent employee, also. Thank you
for being able to meet our needs."

working together as both our organizations grow."

service that is provided."
"Opti Staffing Group has been invaluable in helping us expand our
business. We have tried to use other avenues, such as Jobdango and the
newspaper, to find qualified maintenance mechanics to support our growing metal
recycling business with very limited results.
Since we teamed up with Opti Staffing we have been able to get people that are
qualified in the skill sets that we need and are ready to go to work. We will
continue to use this valuable service to make our business grow. Thanks
"I am pleased that we have had the opportunity to work with Opti Staffing
and will contact them again in the future for other staffing needs. The quality
of the job seekers was excellent and made the hiring decision much easier. I
highly recommend Opti to anyone looking to fill a key position. The recruiters
have always been very helpful in finding good matches for our company."
"We have used Opti Staffing in Portland now for approximately one year now
and have been extremely pleased with our relationship. They took the time to
determine our needs, so when they suggest people to fill open positions, they
have a high probability of meeting our expectations. We now have employees on
our payroll that came through the Opti program and are a very good addition to
We have also been able to call with short time needs that they have been
able to fill. This saves us a tremendous amount of time and cost by having them
do the advertising and preliminary interviews before we get a candidate
suggested to us. They do a great job of follow up to make sure interviews went
as planned, and he also does routine calls to make sure our needs are being met
with their candidates as they are working for us. The local staff has been very
good to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to
anyone as I have done in the past."
"We've dabbled with using perm placements in the past and it hasn't worked
for us. When our Opti representative was assigned to our account, it was a
welcome change. She’s committed to great service – actively producing quality
leads and tuned in to a viable security solution that reduces my workload. What
"Opti Staffing has been very helpful in finding quality personnel on a
temporary and full-time basis."
"Opti Staffing always goes above and beyond to meet our needs. We couldn't
be happier with their service. Their staff is always prompt and professional. I
would definitely recommend them to other businesses."
"My Opti Staffing Skilled Trades Recruiter is remarkable!. He is the
best I have worked with and has exceeded our expectations in providing
immediate response to our staffing needs. He is professional and extremely easy
to work with. 99% of the temporary staff sent to us by OPTI has been hired on
as permanent staff. OPTI is definitely one of our strong business
"I wanted to let you know that I just signed the job offer as a pre-auth
clerk. I also want you to know that you and Opti Staffing were the only
employment agency out of four that I signed up with that actually tried to help
me find a position and that you were very professional in dealing with me.
Thank you for all your help."
"Pat Hanley, our GM, wanted me to let you know that all three of your
candidates that he met with were top notch. I would like to add that the
candidates you provided us with were several classes above what the other two
agencies we used sent us. You came to the shop, got an understanding of what we
needed, and what would 'fit' here, and sent us people that meet our
requirements. Thanks for your hard work."
VP of Finance and Personnel
"Opti Staffing found our company the 'perfect' candidate for a position that
had always been difficult to fill. The professional follow-up I received during
and after the placement was a welcome change from past experiences."
"The reason I work with Opti Staffing is because you and your staff are so
professional. I know that I can count on you to provide temporary services as
well as permanent employees. I know that you are constantly working on having a
group of people to send out on interviews, so you are ready when I call and
need someone ASAP. You have always asked the right questions to fully
understand what I need and want. You're the best!"
"I have utilized Opti Staffing Group for many years and am extremely pleased
with the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the candidates. It is
refreshing to work with an agency that listens to your needs and supplies
candidates that perfectly match the requirements. I thoroughly enjoyed working
with everyone at Opti Staffing, hearing the smiles on the phone and knowing
that customer service is superior."
"I had two jobs to fill and advertised them in the usual ways. After two
months I had one hire, and wasted dozens of hours with unqualified, late,
no-show, or just plain weird candidates. I listed the second job with Opti and
in two weeks had several well-qualified applicants, already screened. Our hire
is working out well and fits in great in my small business. I wish I had
started with Opti and I will use them again."
"Coming from the lower 48, I was a bit skeptical about using a temp service,
as I had never had to do so before. I was very impressed with Opti Staffing
almost immediately. I was thoroughly interviewed and consequently matched up
with a company that I felt was perfectly suited to my qualifications and even
more importantly to my specifications.
My Opti contact touched base with me frequently to assess my jobs satisfaction
and ongoing needs. Now as an employer for Opti Staffing Personnel, it's that
attention to operational excellence that keeps me using the service. Thanks for
everything Opti Staffing!"
"We hired one of your candidates as a full-time employee. We are very happy
with him. I also want to thank you for all your help with our staffing issues.
I will call you in the future if our needs increase. Thanks again!"
"The staff at Opti helped us fill the different position of Field Generator
Technician. They do an excellent job of screening candidates. Once they reach
us we are likely to hire the candidate. It's quality and selection - not volume
- which would waste our time and their clients' time. Also, they came on-site
to see what the company environment is like."

"In the past year the Opti Staffing Team were instrumental in search and

Not only did they repeatedly demonstrate that she understood our needs,
but she worked just as hard to replace a candidate who left during the
guarantee period as she did during the initial placement. Opti continues to be
my "go to" resource whenever I need assistance with staffing."
"Being relatively new to the area, using Opti eliminates me having to drive all
over trying to find places that are hiring. I find that the pay is the same as
getting hired directly with a company. Nathan and Josh have been great with
helping me find the best fitting jobs for my needs. It seems they genuinely
have an interest in my success."
The candidate that Opti Staffing Group sent to
me has exceeded all my expectations and has been worth every penny I have
invested in her. Thank you for bringing such a valuable player to my
Out of all the interviews I've had so far, I think I enjoyed yours the
best. Probably because it was more free-form and less based on what I had
on my resume and my specific job experiencesin the past. I felt rather at
ease talking with you. Thanks for having me come in.
Again, thanks for having me come in. I look forward to seeing what positions
you might find for me.
We have worked with Nathan Houston of Opti Staffing for the past 5
years. Opti has provided quality candidates to us, both for temporary and
temp-to-hire positions. Opti does a great job of learning as much as they
can about our open positions and helping us find the best possible people.
I would not hesitate to recommend Opti Staffing.
Sean (Opti Staffing) has been an incredible asset in finding

direct responsibilities of the position but also for the culture and
high character standards of our company.
I'm proof that Opti Staffing can find the job and people that best fit your

After using several different staffing agencies to supply potential
employees for our facility, we currently only use Opti Staffing Group. In
my opinion, their professionalism and customer service is far above the
rest. We have found that due to their screening process we get staff that
are more qualified and suited to the roles we need to fill. They don't just
send the next person that shows up looking for a job.

I have nothing but positive things to say in regards to Opti. This is a
position that not only fits my interests, but it seems like the perfect fit
and it is all because of the relationship I have been able to build with
them. For the past few months, They have been looking for positions for me
that she felt fit my personality and interests and I commend them on
finding the perfect position. They are exceptional workers and they have
had a positive impact on my job search.
It's been a long time since we've been able to write a statement in such
a positive context for a staffing recruiter. Working with Grace Hansmeier
with Opti Staffing Group has been pure pleasure. She is extremely
professional and handled our employee search with ease because she really
listened to what our needs were for this position. She offered us options
and her follow through was excellent. Grace has a very unusual talent that
will serve her well. She is able to be persistent without being overbearing
which made us all feel very comfortable. Most important, Grace helped us
make an important hiring decision by helping us think through the process
and focusing in on the skills we needed for that position. I can honestly
say that without Grace's involvement in securing just the perfect
individual for our position, we would still be looking. A big 'thank you'
to Grace for doing an awesome job!

"My name is Harley Henderson, I was laid off in Colorado and there were
no decent jobs to be found there. I started looking for jobs in Washington
through the Internet because my wife had a sister there. Chad Hollingshead
with Opti Staffing had heard about me and contacted me. He was very
professional and told me that he had several clients that would be
interested in me. So I sent him my resume and started packing. When we got
to Washington Chad had already set me up with several job interviews. I
went to all the job interviews and gave him feedback about the interviews,
we were able to pick the job that I would be happiest at. I was back to
work a week and two days after reaching Washington, thanks to Chad and the
team at Opti Staffing. They were a very professional team and were also a
very nice and friendly staff that made me feel at home. I definitley
recommend Opti Staffing to helping others to find a job. Thanks for the

doing. After minimal training with our company tracking system he has
proven to be a 'plug and play' solution to our staffing need.
I have encountered and utilized numerous agencies. Before your

provided beyond just that of the candidate is second to none. Many thanks
