“The staff here at the Kearney location is OUTSTANDING. They are always eager to help and guide you in the right direction and
assist you in whatever way they can. I love their “can do” attitude and upbeat nature ... The staff is always there for you to assist you in calming your nerves about your placements. They take an actual interest in determining what job you not only are best suited for, but
one that will provide you with the happiness you deserve.”
 - Kristopher B., Kearney

“The office staff is helpful, sweet and understanding. Like when I went in and first talked to them, I told them I wasn't qualified for much – I had worked in the factory for 29 years. Your response was just the opposite, and you built my self-confidence. There is a great team in the Kearney office.” – Sharon B., Kearney
