"I can say with the most confidence that Northern Staffing Services has helped place me in a position starting at a higher rate, with a company I’m able to grow with. Northern Staffing has been a great experience overall for me."
Jessie Wilkinson

"There is NO other staffing agency I would personally use or recommend besides Northern Staffing. They have my back. They are my team. With them I felt not like one in a million, but one of a million. No questions asked, helpful, friendly and loyal to their employees.

I never felt lost in the sea of people because I always had Northern and Tim if I needed them."

Vince Miskosky
Plant Manager
"Arbre Farms has had an outstanding relationship with Northern Staffing. We have worked together for several years and have been pleased with their staff and their ability to fill our staffing needs. Northern Staffing has gone the extra mile for us on countless occasions and have even put an office on site. I would recommend them to anyone that has staffing needs. Our production facility is a seasonal one which makes staffing much more difficult, but Northern Staffing has continued to go out and find new ways to recruit our needs."
Joel Ostby

“My experience was very positive with Northern Staffing. I applied online one morning and they called me for an interview and were able to fit me in that same day! Immediately after my interview I was offered a position to start the very next day.

The office girls Mandy and Christa were very nice and welcoming. They really cared about me and made sure I had all the information I needed to start my new job at Floracraft. I was comfortable reporting to work for my first day."

Nancy Hall
“I was very impressed how helpful and welcoming the girls in the office were. They welcomed me the moment I walked in the door. I filled out my application and was interviewed on the spot. They offered me a job at Floracraft where my son works. I’m a retired person and since my decision to return to the workforce I have been given the run around for jobs, but the girls didn’t bat an eye putting me to work.”
Damianos Peeper

"I am very honored to be a part of this agency and to say that I actually experience nothing but very honest, courteous, considerate people for job placement. I was assigned to Brewer Sawmill a day after my interview, and was considered for more pay than average. Coming into the office feels like talking with close friends than an agency.

A big thank you to Tim, Angel, Erin, Art -- I truly am thankful for your time and efforts towards helping me and your concern for my well being and employment.
