I was starting a new job as Executive Chef, in a new town with very little time before we opened for the season. I needed employees and I needed them fast.

Judy and Employment North were able to facilitate my needs and not only will I be re-hiring her candidates, I look forward to working with Employment North in the future for dependable employees and service.
