River City Staffing Testimonials

I have been affiliated with River City Staffing for at least four years, and in that time they have always overwhelmed me with awesome employment assignments that have advanced my administrative and executive career. Out of all of the temporary staffing agencies that I have signed with, River City Staffing was the only agency that would definitely push forward my resume to clients that they knew would be interested in my resume. For instance, River City Staffing recruiters found a temp to hire assignment for me in Sacramento, California, and in that short time the client had enjoyed my job performance and hired me on full time five months later. I would recommend River City Staffing to anyone who has not received notifications back from their staffing agency, because they will go the extra mile in pushing for you to get that job assignment that would cultivate your career search.

I wanted to take a moment to thank River City for all of their help, direction and support in helping me obtain the customer service manager position recently. The overall process with getting the position was much longer than anticipated and at times I wanted to give up and move on. River City did a great job of reassuring me I was a solid candidate, provided coaching on how to handle myself each step of the way and gave me the positive reinforcement I needed to keep going. I appreciate River City Staffing for helping me obtain a position with a company I am very excited to work for, and where I feel I can make a difference. I’ve been given the opportunity of a lifetime with a great company, and I have River City to thank for that! I know a lot of people looking for jobs and career changes, so I will advocate every chance I get!

I was offered a position permanently and I have accepted it, so this will be my last time card submitted with River City Staffing. Thank you for all your help, working with RCS has been a pleasure.

When life gives you lemons … you have to make lemonade. Our nation’s economic employment marketplace has been a rollercoaster at best over the past 20 years. Temporary staffing has become a paradigm in today’s market strategy. I have worked for several staffing agencies in the Sacramento area. As a Veteran who later completed my bachelor’s degree, I still have goals I wish to accomplish for myself and my family. I can honestly say that the River City Staffing, from the owner to the administrators and managers, is the most: caring, honest and professional group I have ever had the pleasure of representing. When needed, they have always helped me to make that lemonade. I am always treated as a business professional rather than a number. They have my highest recommendation and respect. I have worked with River City for at least 15 years.

A representative from River City Staffing contacted me during my job search amidst the pandemic. While the nation was suffering uncertainty in job security, the staff at River City was able to secure me a temp to perm position within a reputable company in the real estate industry (my focus). This position resulted in a permanent hire, and I am beyond grateful for the efforts of the River City team! River City is a sparkling diamond in the rough when viewed across the board of any other agency I’ve ever worked with in my career. Their communication and truth seeking as to what you are looking for in a position (career building, culture, salary) really speaks to their ability to find you a solid fit and a place to plant your feet. I’d found myself turning down opportunities they had on the table because they didn’t meet with my needs (industry, salary), and had pretty much written them off thinking they wouldn’t be contacting me again, but not a few days later they would contact me with something that fit along the lines of what I was looking for! The difference here, is that they listen and they care about what they do. You are not a collection of experiences on a piece of paper placed in a bidding war for a commission, these are real people that want to help real people find a job that provides longevity, happiness, security – the big picture! Did I mention they care? I would recommend River City Staffing to anyone looking for a strong position to sink their teeth into. Maria, Mary, Samantha, Renee, team, and Cindy (the CEO personally came to my office to congratulate me for the permanent hire!) have all left a lasting impression in my book as far as staffing agencies go. I no longer think of staffing agencies as a stop along the way, but a viable beacon with a light that never goes out.

I have been a loyal client of River City Staffing for 21 years, and they are always my first call whenever I have a position to fill. They have the rare ability of finding exactly the right person for the job. They understand that a great recruiter is not just looking for someone who has the specific skills and experience to do the job, but one who is also the right personality fit for the position. Because of this ability, River City Staffing is always my first call when I need to fill a position. They don’t waste my time by sending multiple resumes at me, they actually screen all individuals to find just the right person (both skillset and personality), and then only present those few candidates who they truly feel will be perfect for the position. In most instances, I end up hiring the first or second person River City sends to me. And, on the rare occasions that River City does not have just the right candidate, instead of wasting my time by continuing to send resumes to me, the staffing managers will actually let me know they do not have the candidate I’m looking for, giving me the opportunity to then expand my search to other recruiting agencies. That is something I’ve never experienced with another staffing agency. I would highly recommend River City Staffing for anyone seeking quality candidates!

I moved to the Sacramento area a little over three years ago after spending many years as a human resources professional on the east coast. Upon settling in with my current employer, I received an invitation from River City to meet and explore our mutual interests. It was a meeting that I am very glad I accepted. We immediately identified shared values and focus, chief among them, a purpose driven approach to superior customer service. We have 11 separate offices, and River City has supported our efforts in almost all of them. Over the past two years, we have relied upon River City to provide rapid turnaround time on temporary assignments, as well as more strategic help with permanent positions. On every occasion, River City has provided excellent candidates, so much so that we have hired some to stay on with us (including a very skilled human resources business partner reporting directly to me). I strongly recommend Dave Watson and the entire River City team. They are professional, responsive, and they have consistently provided high quality and skilled talent to our organization. River City is one of our valued business partners.

River City Staffing is more than a placement service, they are partners! The recruiting team is very responsive! They conveyed a solid understanding of the positions we needed to fill and always made our staffing needs a priority. They go above and beyond for the clients as well by following up regularly and routine onsite check-ins to ensure overall satisfaction. They also take time to truly understand the culture and business needs. It is evident the entire team strives to place the most qualified candidates! I highly recommend River City Staffing for all of your staffing needs!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to write an appreciation letter to commend River City Staffing on having such wonderful people working for them and on their exemplary service that I’ve recently received. I have worked with so many recruiting/temp agencies in the past and River City Staffing is definitely the best. It’s my wonderfully good fortune to have met and been assisted by two wonderful individuals from your River City Staffing team. They were so helpful and beyond amazing. They were so helpful, very responsive, extremely efficient, fast, very understanding, professional, and best of all reliable. Since we’ve connected, I didn’t have to wait too long to get the results I needed. They were able to find me the job I’ve been searching for. It was the fastest turnaround time ever. I still can’t believe how fast they were able to find me a job that suits me the best. I will definitely let all my friends and family know about the great service I’ve received from River City Staffing. Again from the bottom of my heart, I thank you and am truly grateful for your assistance in helping me find a job. Thank you River City Staffing.

Your Business Development Manager did a great job matching my skills and professional experience with an organization that I believe will be a great place to work and thrive. Thank you!
