I reached out to Whitman after finding them online and not knowing anything about them. From the very start, it was a great experience and the owner, Julie called me personally to assess our needs, not just a staffer. She provided several candidates with a range of qualifications for our interview for our position in the meetings dept at our association. The process of securing our preferred candidate was very easy. Whitman provided great followup on the candidate and made the billing process easy too Great and fair pricing. We just hired our preferred candidate as well after 3 months. Highly recommend Whitman. Venise Lewis, National PACE Association, Alexandria, VA

The staff and management at Whitman take personal care and interest in their clients. I never felt like I was being handed gigs; rather, I was establishing long-term professional relationships. They take great care in the roles they present to me, take a genuine interest in how interviews go, and are actually concerned about how job placements are working. Moreover, while the longer term roles are in development, they offer plenty of short term work in the meantime. I cannot recommend Whitman enough, and look forward to working with them in the future.

Finding full-time temporary work was incredibly challenging until I got in contact with Whitman. The folks at Whitman were fantastic with not only placing me at an amazing organization, but they were also incredibly understanding and advocated for me on multiple levels. I would recommend Whitman Associates to anyone looking for help gaining employment!

Best recruiting agency I have worked with so far. After a few opportunities didn't pan out, there was finally one for which they got me an initial interview in a matter of days after I got laid off, and then within two weeks I was called back for the final interview. I then got an offer that was even better than anticipated. I am forever grateful to Whitman Associates!

Chace, Julie, and their team gave me such wonderful individual attention, advice, honesty, as well as keeping me updated and informed about what was out there. After a few months, they were able to find the PERFECT position for me and my rather eclectic skill set. I enthusiastically recommend Whitman to anyone looking for a new opportunity!

My first and best employment agency experience! Within a week of finding them on Indeed, they were able to secure a 3-month temp-to-hire contract. Everyone has been so helpful and kind, I am so appreciative! Also, shoutout to Julie for playing such a big role in my success here, she's been so thoughtful and really vouched for me!

I cannot say enough good things about Whitman Associates! As a small business owner, finding temporary staffers is quite difficult. But to find those that are competent, punctual, and responsible is neatly impossible. Yet that is what Whitman does with ease. We used another local staffing agency prior to Whitman, and had nothing but problems. By contrast, we have NEVER HAD a bad experience with Whitman. In fact, we just used then for a temp-to-hire. Could not be more pleased. And Julie, their fearless leader, is a quality-oriented and compassionate woman. Highest marks!
