Just about 3 months ago I started working for Option 1 Staffing and you can tell that they genuinely care about each individual that walks in the door. Everyone is determined to find the best fit for both the client and candidate. I definitely would recommend this company to anyone!

Option 1 Staffing is a fantastic institution. Paula Fletcher defines professionalism. She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, thorough and has a very positive attitude. My experience has been 5 stars without a doubt.

JOE

Option 1 Staffing has been the best resource! I've shopped around and this by far is the most professional and personable experience in the Bay Area. Greg and Paula are first-rate and the supporting staff are always friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend their services! They placed me at Stanford 9 years ago and I reached back out when I needed there services recently. Paula remembered me and was happy to assist once more! You are in great hands with Option 1 Staffing!

MARIA

I had the opportunity to work with Option 1 Staffing Services this past year. I feel that the employees (not just the one I worked with regularly, but all of them) really made an effort to get to know me as a person, resulting in a better fit position for work. I would stop in to drop my time sheets off from time to time, just to see their faces, because that's how truly great they were at their jobs. This has been an incredible experience from start to finish, and I recommend it to all of my friends who need help finding their passion.

KAY

Option 1 Staffing is a great company with great people working there. They are very helpful in placing people in jobs that are a good match for each individual. The office staff is very helpful and accommodating and always available to you when you need them. One of the best things about them is that if, for any reason, you don't feel a placement is a good fit they will find you another position with no questions asked. They also find jobs of any length of time you wish to work and will accommodate keeping you working temp jobs or temp to perm. I highly recommend working with this staffing agency. They will keep you working!

PEGGI

The office staff at Option 1 was so welcoming and my overall experience was very positive. I had the opportunity to meet with McElle and Paula who both were very receptive in understanding what type of work I was seeking and recruited me for a long-term assignment the same day. The assignment is a great opportunity and I am so happy and excited to be a part of the Option 1 Team. Thank you for your passion to encourage and commitment to helping others knock on the doors of opportunity.

GINA

I was in need of a part-time position while I completed my degree and Option 1 was able to find me a great place that was willing to work with my school schedule. I have worked with other companies before that were never as successful finding me exactly what I needed when I needed it. Everyone in the office is very friendly and amazing to work with, especially if I ever have any issues or concerns. I would definitely recommend trying to work with Option 1 Staffing, if given the opportunity, and I have recommended some people to give them a call.

TANYA

I would highly recommend Option 1 Staffing if you're looking to find a job. I worked with Paula and McElle and they were AMAZING! They listened to my requirements and helped me find the job of my dreams. They're very responsive and easy to work with. Happy to say that I've already accepted a full time position at the company they had me temp at. Thank you Option1!

ALISSA

While hiring three temporary resources Paula was pro-active and in touch with me at every step of the way. She clearly works hard for her clients on both ends. I ended up referring someone to Paula who is looking for work in the Bay Area as a result. Not only would I recommend someone to Paula looking for recruiting services, I have. Good temp agencies and agents are hard to find. Paula is clearly a star in the field.

JOCELYN

I love Option 1 Staffing! The team there is both friendly and professional. I was contacted about a great opportunity in the Peninsula area and received a job offer just 10 days later. Amy is one of the most pleasant recruiters I've ever worked with and she genuinely wants to help her candidates find a role that is the perfect fit for them. Thanks again to everyone at Option 1 for helping me to land my dream job!

TFORD

I had the pleasure of working with McElle as she reached out to me on LinkedIn about a healthcare position. Happy to say that I received a permanent job offer, and it’s all thanks to her! I highly recommend Option 1!

CRYSTAL

I love working with Option 1 Staffing. Amy and Paula have been wonderful to work with and everyone has excellent customer service skills. They are good at understanding what you are looking for in a position and find a job that fits. I had more quality interviews in one week with them than I had in a whole month with other staffing agencies. They were able to get me a position at my dream company in a fast time frame and I am still currently working there and loving it.

JORDAN

COURTNEY

I met with Option 1 staff just a couple times and they knew exactly where I should work and what position I should work in. I must say that I love the job I have right now. Everyone at Option 1 have been extremely helpful and very quick at responding if I have any questions. I would definitely recommend someone to go with Option 1 Staffing.

VICTORIA

Option 1 Staffing was one of the first agencies I worked with after graduation and I’ve always had a positive experience working with them. Mike and Paula, have great opportunities with surrounding universities and companies. I’ve was able to expand my IT skillset with them and currently working in web services with a local prestigious university. If you’re looking to use skills you have in tech and need a fresh start or a season veteran looking for a nice opportunity Option 1 Staffing might have something for you!

AUSTIN

I have worked with quite a few staffing agencies and my experience with Option 1 Staffing has been very positive. Greg and Mike helped place me in a great job and their thorough follow up is very much appreciated. They also always follow up to see if I need anything and I feel needed and it makes me feel I'm part of a great team.

VUIVE

I had a really great experience with Nicole. She really went above and beyond for me finding me a position in a company that I really enjoy working for. I am so thankful for the services that Option 1 has provided for me. As a student, it was difficult to find any job that could match with my school schedule as well as be easily accessible without requiring me to drive. She made all of that happen, and I am extremely thankful. On top of that, this company made the hiring process a breeze and I was kept in the loop and updated frequently.

LAUREN

Option 1 Staffing is my best experience to find a job. All staff are nice, hard workers and have commitment to be a professional HR. I, especially thank Greg, Mike and Lisa Zimmerman for their support. I am very satisfied in my new career.

MARYAM

Option 1 Staffing Services has been a wonderful experience. I'm fairly new to the Silicon Valley area & I was skeptical to go down the temp route. The staff quickly eased my apprehension. Within 1 month, they matched my experience & skills with an incredible organization. Every day I am thrilled to go into the office I'm assigned to. The staff at Option 1 is always friendly & professional ready to support me &/or the client. Thanks Option 1 for opening doors to the opportunities you have provided me.

NAOMI

Amazing people, super friendly and easy to work with! They helped me get employed within a week at a job I absolutely love. Paula was very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend Option 1 Staffing!

TEYA

I thank Option 1 for helping me find my job. They truly care about you and what kind of job you are looking for in order for both parties to be happy.  I am so happy where I am at! 🙂
