Rose Marie and her staff were wonderful to work with. I was placed quickly in a Temp to hire position. I would not hesitate to use their services again, if ever needed or recommend them to others.

They are the best! I love meeting with their staff, and had such a wonderful interview with their VicePresident, Rosamarie Summers. It was amazing to to get to see and feel her personal interest in helping find my dream job which was beyond what I had seen and could have expected from a recruiting company. I sent emails asking questions, and getting replies, and wonderful advices at any hours. I would like everyone to know they are surely ready to help you if your are serious about finding your dream job. Thank you Charles Foster, thank you dear Rose! You've made all the difference 🙂

Wow, I really appreciate the level of professionalism and service when working with Rosemarie Summers to find an event coordinator for our recent event set-up. Rosemarie provided a high quality, responsible temporary event coordinator that helped me with every project in record time. Thanks! - Christine

Looking for a new job but don't know where to start? I highly recommend using Charles Foster Staffing! I was lucky enough to work with Rosemarie. Rosemarie is professional, personable, and caring. It was apparent she wanted to help me find the best position for my personality and aspirations for the future. I was placed at my new job in just 1 week! No need to look anywhere else for staffing agencies.

Working with Charles Foster Staffing (CFS) has changed my perception of staffing agencies. Everyone I worked with at CFS, Julie, Dottie, and Rosemarie, were incomparably professional, offering exceptional support every step of the way. They are not in the business to “find and place candidates”, but rather finding out who their candidates are, what their clients seek and desire, and finding the perfect fit for all involved. I am so grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me. Working one-on-one with Rosemarie brought great relief through my bouts of uncertainty. The follow up support and professionalism I experienced were superb. I felt as if Rosemarie took the time to understand my skills and background, as well as get a clear understanding of what I was looking for in a future employer. She was able to find the position that was perfect for me while negotiating on my behalf. I received constant, exceptional support and feedback throughout the entire process, and I cannot thank CFS enough for their assistance. Stepping into today’s ever-changing workforce can be daunting to say the least - the very least. If you find yourself in the midst of this daunting task, I would highly recommend reaching out to CFS and allowing them to do what they do best, provide seamless support, guidance, and satisfaction. You could not be in better hands.

I had put my resume in with Charles Foster a few months ago. I worked a temp job and towards the end of my contract I had Joy and and Carley set me up with an interview with a new company. I was happy where I was and hoping my temp job would have continued. However, I am so glad that Carley and Joy were looking out for me and encouraged me to check out the company they had in mind for me. I am VERY happy and feel VERY fortunate that the lined me up with this interview. I have been at my new job for almost a month and I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much Joy and Carley for helping me find my new job. I have never felt more at home or happy with my new career. Both women have reached out to check on my and to see how I was liking my new job. I appreciate their professionalism and their enthusiasm to help me find a job that fits me perfectly.
