I’m looking forward to participating in the WEX program again not only for technical interns but for other positions for my growing company.
We would like to thank Lori and Tammy in the Auburn office and Melody in the Roseville office for all their ongoing assistance and education we received as to Golden Sierra’s super offerings.
My experience working with Golden Sierra has been very positive. The process to hiring our intern was painless and smooth, the Golden Sierra team did a great job in finding the right candidates and onboarding the intern.
The paperwork for the OTJ program was minimal and easy to complete, staff minimized my involvement by coordinating directly with the job candidate, staff was available and responsive to answer the questions I did have, and the reimbursement process is simple and straightforward.
I was able to find an IT intern through their service. We are nearing the end of the internship and it was rewarding for everyone. He’s decided to go to school to get a degree in IT administration, which is a big win for all involved.
We have two employees who graduated from the OJT Program, our office manager who is going on four years and a computer technician who has been here for 1 ½ years. Golden Sierra posted a job description for a Business Services Independent Contractor. Within a few days we had 10 applicants to interview and employed a highly qualified person from the group.
Candidates placed by Golden Sierra are hardworking individuals who stay on-task, are willing to learn new skills and desire to be a positive member of our work team.
[Golden Sierra has] been extremely helpful over the last year in our hiring needs. They helped me with a Hiring Event, they did it all. Advertised, took reservation, came early to set up and check the applicant in and cleaned up. We received 20 resumes from that event. 12 of which we had or will have for interviews.
Our experience with Golden Sierra has been more than excellent. The staff are professional, well organized, and make super use of their resources.
In a nutshell, Golden Sierra made participation in the program unexpectedly easy for employers, which was a huge relief for me as a small business owner. What I didn’t appreciate until later in the process was how much the reimbursement actually helped to offset the cost of training a new employee, particularly a first employee.
