Established in 1969, our client, a mid-sized, independent oil and gas company had experienced significant growth in 2010. This publicly traded company has a national presence but is based in Denver, Colorado, and has been using J. Kent to support their Denver staffing and recruiting needs since 2009. In November, 2011 they contacted J. Kent Staffing, a Denver employment agency and Denver temporary staffing firm, to fill a two day temporary receptionist need.
The company’s current receptionist was taking a few days off, thus the temporary staffing request. However, unbeknownst to Kristie, our client had just promoted their receptionist to Denver Division Order Clerk and therefore, they were going to be hiring a replacement due to promotion. Within hours, J. Kent’s Staffing Manager hired Kristie, a former PreK-8 art teacher for this public contact, people-oriented Receptionist job in downtown Denver, Colorado.
A former art teacher, Kristie was seeking new career opportunities and looking to gain further administrative and business experience through temporary work. Her positive attitude, down to earth personality and diverse skills made her an excellent J. Kent Temporary Employee. In this tough Denver economy, Kristie happily and gratefully accepted the temporary assignment offered with little advanced notice. Impressed by Kristie’s upbeat personality, ability to learn quickly and her computer skills, our client approached J. Kent’s Staffing Manager to discuss our employee’s interest in a possible Temp-to-Hire opportunity.
Kristie’s Temp-to-Hire period has ended and she is now a FTE (full-time employee) of our client. Kristie completed The J. Kent Process on November 3, 2011 and was hired by J. Kent’s Staffing Manager to begin the 2 day Receptionist Assignment on November 9, 2011. On December 19, 2011 she started her full-time employment receiving outstanding benefits and a higher salary than anticipated. Congratulations Kristie! Temp-to-Hire employment has enabled you to join a historically stable company that is growing and expanding, and also recognizes personal productivity through promotion and advancement.
