This was such a wonderful process from start to finish. Our cold call resulted in someone in our office in days who was exactly what we needed and more. The staff were wonderful and talking us through the best options for our business and needs. No placement is cookie-cutter. They took the time to find the right person but also clearly had a knowledge of their people to find the right fit. The billing and invoicing system was a good fit for us since we utilize ACH payments frequently. It was clearly designed and easy to submit the timesheets. I appreciate the flexibility and accountability of the service from start to finish.

At the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) we are glad to partner with Whitman Associates once again in 2024. In 2024 we reached out to Whitman Associates to staff our most difficult to hire administrative position. Whitman Associates responded quickly and in less than a week we had a qualified person sitting covering a critical in office role. The performance of the Whitman Associates resource we have on site has been excellent and we are happy to host her. The communication and customer service of the Whitman Associates team made it very easy. It is important to also note than in our search Whitman Associates provided us the most competitive rate from other industry staffing firms we contacted. Thank you for making it easy for us at the NVLSP!

Whitman Associates have wonderful to with. Within days of working with them, they found me a month long temporary position that I loved. I just finished my second assignment they set me up with and had an equally positive experience. Their care and professionalism is unmatched. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for temporary/permanent positions in the DC area.

I first heard of Whitman Associates when I was looking for work and this agency was mentioned by a couple of friends. This is my first interaction with the agency and in the “temp” space in general. First, I was placed within 24 hours … that’s a pretty good first impression!! Second, everyone from the owner, the office manager and staff have been really great to work with. Their professionalism is on display whenever I ask questions or have requests. I highly recommend Whitman Associates for anyone looking for an agency to help with staffing needs or an individual looking for work

I had a wonderful experience working with Whitman Associates for procuring temps for our 2024 Annual Meeting for our client ASC. Maggie was excellent with showing up onsite and making sure our temps were together and Julie/Chace were great in helping me get all the planning process together for our event needs. Overall a really great team and whenever I am in the DC area and need temps, I would only work with Whitman.
