Highly recommend! Whitman reached out to me during my job search process and helped connect me to positions of interest. They guided me every step of the way, and were always just a call or email away when I had questions or followed up after my interviews. Ultimately, they helped me land my current role, which was my top pick! Thank you to Chace, Julie, Laila, Maggie, and the rest of the team!
Whitman has been nothing short of a miracle! After 15+ months being unemployed during the dreadful pandemic I was able to be placed on a 3-6 month assignment at an amazing non-profit organization within 2-3 weeks of connecting with them. I’ve worked for many temp agencies in my career and they send you job description after job description, get you all excited then crickets. Whitman on the other hands down gets the job done, love this agency! Thanks Ladies, you Rock!

It has truly been my pleasure to work for a fantastic organization like Whitman. When I retired I went searching for a temp agency and I found Whitman. Julie, Maggie and Chace made the application process seem effortless. This group of ladies are efficient, reliable and friendly. I have been sent on assignments that has enhanced my knowledge, but most of all I have enjoyed them tremendously and I am always paid on time. Whitman not only met my expectations, they have exceeded them. THANK YOU WHITMAN!

I highly recommend Whitman for Employers and Employees alike. I received a job assignment from them and have since been hired full time. My association also uses Whitman anytime we need temporary help. They always send the best employees. Julie, my primary contact at Whitman, is very caring and a pleasure to work with. When I know of people who are looking for work, or want to hire someone, I always recommend Whitman.

I was referred to Whitman Associates by a friend (who couldn't say enough good things about the agency) after graduating from college and moving to the DMV. I didn't know what next steps I needed to take, but I knew I needed a job. The recruitment/placement specialists at Whitman moved quickly to help me find the perfect matches for both temporary and eventually permanent work. They were responsive and attentive and I could not be happier with my placement! I recommend Whitman to any recent grads, anyone new to the area, or anyone else looking for a staffing/temp agency. Thank you Whitman!
