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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
The prompt manner in which Golden Sierra helped us locate a new hire was awesome!
Our experience with Golden Sierra has been more than excellent. The staff are professional, well organized, and make super use of their resources.
