The Furst Difference
When our Founder and CEO, Darlene Furst, started the business, she had two young kids. As a working mother, she understood the importance of offering a flexible work environment. Our staffing agency culture offers flexibility so our team can fulfill responsibilities such as taking children to appointments or other important personal duties. We believe fostering an environment of fairness and respect for personal and professional responsibilities better supports the health, happiness, and work-life balance of our valued employees – and leads to better results for our clients and candidates.
FurstStaffing strives to meet – and exceed – the expectations of our clients and candidates. In fact, that’s how our business grew. In 1971, we were only doing direct hire placements, but our happy clients asked us for help filling temporary roles in their organizations. Of course! We were happy to provide that service to our Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin clients – just as we continue to meet our partners’ evolving needs in every way possible.
Our goal has never been to capture the largest market share. Rather, we’re determined to be the staffing partner that overdelivers on our promise:
To provide creative, personalized staffing solutions and career opportunities that exceed your expectations.
Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion
Our company embraces the diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view our employees bring to our business. FurstStaffing is welcoming and inclusive to all, respecting and valuing everyone’s unique contribution to our business, regardless of gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, and life experiences.
What People Say About FurstStaffing
You know, you were the 5th or 6th place I called today, but you were the ONLY company that had a live person answer the phone and then that person transferred me to a live person to answer my questions. I really appreciated that, and I just wanted to let you know that it really makes a difference.
Also wanted you to know that I’ve been really happy with the Furst team. Both Rachel Thomann and Melissa Saunders are a joy to work with.
I worked with Rachel, and she was top notch. She responded right away to all of my inquiries, sent me potential candidates right away, and stayed connected until we found the ideal employee!
FurstStaffing has always kept me working! I would recommend this company above all others. If you want to go to work, just call and be sincere about your involvement and they will definitely find you a position. Above all, their jobs are temp to hire! Thank you FurstStaffing for giving me this opportunity!
Staff is helpful and professional. I did not feel forgotten in my job searching experience.
