David Robb, the director of operations for Express Employment Professionals, says many companies have been looking to fill positions for a while and this is a great chance to get that done.
“I think right now, we’ve got a lot of companies that are trying to grow after a crazy last couple months, so they’re really looking to hire and bring on new team members to do that, and right now companies are willing to pay more than ever before, they’re increasing benefits, really a lot of really good opportunities,” said Robb.
