Our model is “temp to hire”. You apply for one of the available positions at Roots Staffing, based on your skills and location. If accepted, you work at that job site for 90 days as one of Roots’ employees. The goal is that after 90 days, you receive an offer for permanent, full-time employment with that company.
We are not in the warm body business. We are in the people business. Our mission is to see you be successful.
Through partnerships with key nonprofits, we can help you overcome the barriers to getting and keeping a good job.
Our experienced job coaches will call you every week during your time with us, and help you work through whatever challenges you are facing in work and life.
We are very selective on the companies we partner with. We seek companies with positive cultures, good safety practices, training opportunities, and ultimately the opportunity for you to earn permanent employment and growth.
We’ll get to know you and pair you with a job that fits with your life.
Everything was laid out and explained thoroughly and there was no confusion on where to go or what day to do something, very smooth process
Very helpful in letting me know what to expect at interview. Roots made a personal connection as well as a business connection.
Everyone was professional and I was well prepared for my official interview
My job coach checked on me every week and made sure everything was going good and that I wasn’t having any trouble
My job coach was very helpful when I was sick. She made me feel like family and not an employee.
I love how they talked to me every week & keep changing my job until I found something I like… They never gave up on me
I feel that roots is not like any other temp service. I was very comfortable with everyone I have talked to. I felt like they cared and that we were important and humans and not just a work horse!
Everyone I have interacted with has been extremely nice and has been an all around good experience.
I felt more like an employee than a number
Was very persistent in keeping up with me and making sure everything was going ok.
They listen to your needs
Definitely would refer friends
Because you know up front what you have to do to get the job. Unlike my past experiences with temp services
I had proper preparation with Roots and my coaching Staff before the interview
Every time I have any questions or issues the Roots team has been very prompt at helping me resolve the issue
We understand that it’s not as simple as “getting a job.” There are barriers. Criminal records, poor work history, and more prevent you from getting a job. Problems with child care, tranportation, and more prevent you from keeping a job. We’re here to help. We’ve partnered with key nonprofits in the city to help you work through and overcome these barriers and more.
