What our client's say

HR Manager, Clayton DE

"​ I started in my role here in October of 2019.  At the time we used two other staffing providers for most of our temporary needs. 

The associates that we received from the other companies were not meeting our expectations.  In April of 2020 we started talking to Thompson First Group.  Thompson First Group offered us a full onsite program.  We had to hire approximately 100 people during the full blown Covid social distancing (April 2020).  All our job fairs were cancelled and we were in dire straits.  Thompson First Group came in, did the recruiting and we even had them do our orientation program.  Part of their orientation program was taking our forms and making them electronic.  It really saved time and money having this feature.  They saved us valuable time in getting the workers we needed and had them ready to go. 

The positions we used Thompson First Group for were:

  • Production Associates

  • Machine Operators

  • Forklift Drivers

  • Refrigeration Technicians

  • Maintenance Technicians

Thompson First Group's Forklift drivers were impeccable.  Each candidate they presented had real experience and were able to provide a positive impact from their first day.  Some of their hires were so strong – we promoted them to leads!

Thompson First Group has become our exclusive staffing partner and as a company we feel like we are much better hands.

I’ve worked on the tempory side of things in a recruiter role and know how difficult it can be – Thompson First Group gets it right. "
