why EMBERS Staffing
EMBERS Staffing Worker
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!

I have worked for EMBERS for a year and it's been an amazing experience. I've doubled my wage and acquired many skills and tickets for operation of equipment and first aid skills.

If you’re looking to get into trades or want some part time work, EMBERS is the place to go. The staff are very friendly and polite. EMBERS gave me the chance to try a new career and to help me develop my skills. They even offer in-house training for a variety of tickets. I highly recommend EMBERS to anyone who wants to test their hand in trades

I have worked with many employment agencies in Vancouver. EMBERS is way ahead of all of them. They are a non-profit and the staff are really friendly and they care about their people. They can help with training, education and many other supports. I have worked with people there from all walks of life. A really awesome organization!
My favourite thing is that EMBERS is very accommodating, understanding and flexible. EMBERS actually cares for people. They gave me an opportunity. When I first came here I didn’t have anything going for me, and it was just as easy as coming in the door and they got me work – it was awesome! I always tell people that if you want to work and start earning, just come to EMBERS, it’s that easy.
They taught me how to turn my life around, and are forever on my gratitude list.
Honestly, EMBERS is one of the best temporary employment agencies in Vancouver. If it wasn’t for EMBERS, I would probably be homeless or at least broke! EMBERS offers very competitive wages and the staff are exceptionally friendly. I know when I go into the office, no matter what time of day it is, there will always be warm conversation and good jokes. EMBERS as well, has helped me get several permanent jobs and definitely helps me with my education.
EMBERS has been more than an employer. They have been like a friend that actually goes out of their way to be helpful, considerate, and genuinely concerned about what’s going on in my life. They offer support in any way they can, which I am grateful for. I feel like they’re my family in lieu of me having no family. EMBERS is a great organization which I am proud to work hard for and I do my very best work to show that I appreciate working here as well.
I am very grateful to EMBERS for giving me opportunities. The people and the companies are just phenomenal. It feels like family. They always care about you, and they always have jobs for you. They want you to keep growing and be successful.
EMBERS has helped me tremendously with getting more experience in my line of work, and has helped me with numerous opportunities to continue to keep moving forward onto bigger, better things. I love all of the EMBERS staff. They have helped out a lot and are very friendly, caring, understanding and just all around awesome.
You can walk into EMBERS without any experience and you get treated like an adult right away. All the opportunities for steady work makes EMBERS different from other temp companies. When I tell people about EMBERS, I tell them that if you are looking for work it’s a great place where you get treated well. There are always opportunities at EMBERS, right now they are putting me through a CSO course! I like that after I established myself as a reliable worker, I would always have a job. I could come in the morning and immediately get a job. The donuts and coffee are nice, but that job is so much nicer
I want to share what EMBERS Staffing has done for me. They worked with me, giving me a chance to get a job. The people working there believed in me. They did not care about my past and gave me a chance to get back on my feet. They opened the door so I could get my life back on track. So I want to thank all the people who work there from the bottom of my heart for all their help, so thank you. They are like one big happy family. They always greet you with a smile and kind words. Now I’m once again feeling like I have a chance to live a clean and sober life, so thank you very much.
