I am a middle aged man returning to the workforce after several years. I was trepidatious about using a temporary staffing agency, especially one that largely caters to the Construction industry. I did not want to feel like an old man in a young man’s game. I called EMBERS Staffing Solutions (Abbotsford) and I spoke with Kate. We scheduled to meet soon thereafter. When we met, she made me comfortable to speak honestly and openly about my reservations. She asked me about my skills and past Vocational experience. 2 days later I was off to work…with the PPE Kate furnished me! I have been working steady ever since in jobs I enjoy and in jobs tailored for me. Not only have Kate and EMBERS given me an income I can live comfortably off, they have given me my self esteem back. Thanks Kate!
