Often, we receive very short notice when one of our employees is unable to make a 12-hour production shift. Thus, Joe and his team had to work extra hard to meet our needs. But, he always comes through for us, no matter what time of day or night. We continue to be approached by staffing agency representatives who in their own right have good track records, but Joe and his team gives us no reason to shop this service.Rita- Richard's Packaging
