Hiring can pay for itself
On-the-Job Training (OJT) provides a wage reimbursement to employers to help offset the costs associated with training newly hired employees. You may receive up to 75% of an employee’s gross wages during the training period.
We can also provide hiring assistance to help you recruit the right candidates!
Employers who are ready to hire new employees for permanent positions are encouraged to inquire about this program. Contact our business services representative to get started.
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.
They carefully matched their students to our job specifications and provided excellent support for everyone throughout the internship. We had the opportunity to work with very talented, excited interns and provided them some great real life experience. We’re looking forward to working with Golden Sierra again.
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.
When we needed to add scanning technicians for our business to meet a big project deadline, they provided us with prescreened applicants. We were able to finish that project on time and under budget thanks to Golden Sierra and the various programs like WEX and OJT they offered. We acquired some excellent workers and even though our work has slowed down for now, we still have one of the workers working for us full time. She is a great worker and we are happy to have her as part of our full time team.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
