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.
[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.
Golden Sierra has been very helpful to me the last 2 years. They helped me find an outstanding HR Assistant. I utilized the Wage Subsidy program. It was very easy and actually was so smooth
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.
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.
Compassion Planet looks forward to a long-term working relationship with Golden Sierra to ensure together we can provide a positive work experience to help young (18-25 year olds) at-risk youth develop the necessary work and people skills to ensure that they will be productive and successful contributors to our community.
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.
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.
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.
Our experience with Golden Sierra has been more than excellent. The staff are professional, well organized, and make super use of their resources.
