What Our Candidates are Saying

"Gage Personnel is doing a phenomenal job. I am happy with the entire process. I never worked for a temp agency before, but have heard horror stories about temps not getting their pay, etc. Gage Personnel did an excellent job, I was paid at the rate I was promised and paid on time. A recruiter met with me one day, and I had a job the next day. I love my new job. Thank you!"
