Client Testimonials

“Opti is providing a very thorough prescreening 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.”

– Nicola, Logistics Agent

“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, and we hope to make her a permanent employee. Thank you for being able to meet our needs.”

– Phyllis

“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 guys!”

– Steve Lovin, Facility Manager

“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 into a viable security solution that reduces my workload. What a pleasure!”

– Shannon King

“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.”

– Janice Wenrich, HR Manager

“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.”

– Rhonda Watt, HR Director

“Not only did my account manager 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.”

– Cheri Briar, CFO


“Opti Staffing Group has provided a number of highly competent individuals for supporting our dynamic staffing needs. Some of these individuals provided by Opti have become full-time team members. We appreciate and rely on Opti’s professional service.

“Thank you for the support.”

– Dan Fawcett

“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 you both personally and by the way Opti Staffing has serviced our needs as a customer.”

– Robert D. Blackwood, General Manager

“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.”

– Doug Reid, VP of Finance and Personnel

“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 team.”

– Deanna Tuckerman

Jeevan and I both agree that out of everyone we have worked with, with the exception of maybe Reed, you [Crystal] have outdone and outshined all other recruiters from Opti Staffing and from any other staffing agency we have gone through.

Neither of us could think of any instance where we were displeased with your work.

– Lauren Cutrell


“I want to thank 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 Opti!”

– Tacoma Company

“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.”

– Robert Hancock

“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.”

– Susan Jefferson

“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 partners!!”

– Shanie Zaborowski

“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 candidate’s time. Also, they come on-site to see what the company environment is like.”

– Martye Haugstad, Corporate Training & Recruiting Manager

“We have worked with Nathan Houston of Opti Staffing for the past five 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.”

– Dave McCart

“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.”

– James H. Fuller, Branch Operations Manager

“I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how well Bruce is doing. After minimal training with our company tracking system, he has proven to be a ‘plug and play’ solution to our staffing needs.

“I have encountered and utilized numerous agencies. Before your contacting me, I had quite a bitter taste in my mouth. The service you have provided beyond just that of the candidate is second to none. Many thanks to you and Opti Staffing for providing such a quality worker.”

– Jim Furbish, Production Supervisor

“Our organization routinely relies on Opti Staffing to provide us with high-quality candidates in a short amount of time. The professional service they provide us is integral to our company’s success.”

– Suzanne Granger, Human Resources


“Andrew spent time visiting my facility and getting to know our specific needs. He listened and then actively searched to find the right fit for me and my staff in a temp-to-hire position. Andrew showed a genuine desire to help place the right person who could thrive in my business. I truly appreciate his efforts and attitude, and for that he’ll be the only one to fill any staffing needs I have. ”

– Neer Patel

“I am pleased to recommend Andrew Watson with whom I have worked to assist our company in filling very difficult positions within our organization.

“Although I have worked with Andrew for only a few short months, I have found him to be an important resource for expanding our business with talented people. Andrew invested the time to get to know our company, learn about the positions, and eventually come to an understanding of management’s expectations. Once given an assignment, Andrew is tenacious in finding the right candidate, bringing the search to a prompt and successful conclusion.

“I highly recommend Andrew as a search consultant for your company.”

– Debbie Whitworth, PHR, Human Resource Manager

“Opti is very good at filtering through and screening for qualified applicants.”

– Mat Pisha

“Thank you for your service in providing us a direct placement candidate for our Dynamics AX contract position. I appreciated your attentive follow-up and clear communication. I was also pleased to use our direct placement credit for this hire.”

– Amy Hubbard, Human Resource Generalist

“It has been a true pleasure working with Opti over the last few years. They have been a valuable resource in assisting with our staffing requirements by learning our needs, prescreening candidates and sending out the individuals who they feel will best meet the needs of our organization. I look forward to working together as both our organizations grow.”

– Nathan Marks

“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.”

– Janet Holt, HR Manager

“We have used Opti Staffing in Portland 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 our team.

“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 they also do 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.”

– Mike Vallery, Shop Manager

“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!”

– Julie Hansen, General Manager

“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!”

– Don Jackson, Service Manager


“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.”

– Calvin Caley, President

“The people that Opti Staffing sent to us did a great job and worked hard.  I was most impressed with them showing up on time and ready to work.”

– Douglas Stitzel

“I have been working with Opti Staffing for almost five years now. I manage an up-and-coming industrial construction company in the Seattle area and we specialize in EVERYTHING. With the wide variety of specialized skills that we require such as precision alignment, certified welder/fabricators, Millwrights, multi-craft industrial maintenance technicians, etc., one of our biggest challenges is finding people with the required skills and the personality/character to work well as part of our team.

“The one thing that sets Opti Staffing apart from other agencies that I have used is their consistent ability to put multiple strong resumes in front of me in a timely manner whenever I have a job opening.  That is what I need in a staffing agency and what I get with Opti Staffing.

“I have worked with many wonderful associates at Opti but have been working closely with Jewel Koury there for some time now. Jewel has been in the industry for many years, she is a tremendous asset to Opti and the clients that she serves. My experience is that she can think well outside the box, has the patience and understanding to deal with constantly fluctuating client demands, understands what the customers need, is diligent, a consistent and effective communicator, and unequaled in her ability to screen and put together a list of skilled professional candidates that match my demands. It is nice to interview several candidates back to back instead of weeks apart, especially when you needed someone yesterday!

“In my business, as like many, there is little available time when you are a growing company to search for new hires, Opti Staffing takes that burden off my shoulders and my cost for temp-to-hires is typically less than my fully loaded labor burden for my other full-time employees.

“I found something that works, makes my life easier and is helping to grow my business so I am sticking with it.”

– Eagle, General Manager

“My company has used Opti Staffing for placing our candidates in our administration and monitoring center operations.  We have had huge success using Opti Staffing in getting the best-quality candidates to fill our needs.  The staff is always friendly and works hard to position the right candidate in the right position for us.”

– Steve, Central Station Manager

“Our business is growing and it’s very important for us to get the right people into the right jobs.

“Spending hours on advertising, plowing through resumes, and prescreening candidates was not the best use of our time. We have found that working with Opti dramatically reduces the time we need to spend in the hiring process.  They do a great job of understanding what our needs are and then present qualified prescreened candidates to specifically meet those needs. We have used both the temp-to-hire process as well as direct hire and have been pleased with both sides.

“We’ve been a customer of Opti staffing for more than five years and keep going back because we are able to get high-quality candidates who fit our job requirements.”

– Bill, Executive Vice President, COO

“Gwen at Opti Staffing has reduced the hassles of hiring. Her attention to the details of what the company is looking for and needs in a candidate is refreshing and applaudable/meritorious. We are appreciative of Gwen’s ability to find the right candidate for us which makes our hiring process seem effortless.”
