I initially came to Burnett when I too lost my job and had been unemployed. Since I had worked as an employee of a staffing agency as well as a marketing/sales and PR associate, I had a good handle on who I didn't want to have represent me. I received an email from Meredith Clem at The Woodlands branch in regards to a position that they had available with their client. I had a incredibly professional as well as personable meeting with her as we discussed my background and I walked out with a great sense of ease. I did not land an interview for her client because I was "too over-qualified," but the next day had a call from Sue Burnett (CEO) herself wanting to meet with me regarding a position internally. She was incredible friendly and family oriented that I couldn't help but be curious, even though i told myself I wouldn't work for another staffing agency. Long story short, they offered me an internal position, working close to home with flexibility to work part time and at home since I had a small child. I'm now full time, highly successful and very happy. I have to lend it to the amazing environment in which I work, the beautifully sincere co-workers and the mentorship and nurturing from the top executives. They truly care about who I am, my life and how it balances with my ability to do business. I interview candidates and talk with clients everyday that say they landed their first position with Burnett, or their family member did and its always positive. I find that the only negative feedback is from candidates that we could not represent due to their tenure, personality/attitude, criminal history or technical ablities. I hope to stay at Burnett for as long as possible because I feel like I am home everyday.
Burnett Specialists at Greenway Plaza is the place you want to register! I interviewed in February 2014 with Susan Stone. I went on several interviews from March to May. I will never forget the call on May 6, 2014. Michelle Waldron, Operations manager called and this is how the conversation went. "Good morning Tammy! Are you ready to start your new Career tomorrow?" I said, "Good morning and really - where?" Michelle began to tell me about the Company I'd begin my assignment with. I said, "Wait - I need to interview." She says, "No, they have chosen your Resume - are you ready to start your new Career?" I was so excited, yet so nervous as I'd never started an assigment prior to interviewing. I hung up the phone with Michelle with such confidence and happiness! Michelle assured me everything would be just fine and the Company would love me. I'm here to tell you after a 5 1/2 month assigment, I received my offer letter and my "NEW Career" has begun! I'm so blessed and thankful for this incredible opportunity and for EVERYTHING Susan Stone, Michelle Waldron and Lindsay Loveland has done for me during this incredible journey!! If you want an incredible future - trust Burnett Specialists!! Thank you Burnett Specialists, Susan Stone, Michelle Waldron and Lindsay Loveland - YOU are AWESOME!!
I signed on with Burnett’s Downtown (now Greenway) office in the Fall of 2011. There have been very few weeks since then I have not had assignments – sometimes because I have other plans at that time. It was easy to gain a great rapport with my Staffing Manager – I think that is key in getting work. Interview well, perform well and keep a positive attitude and the work will come! I have developed relationships with several clients that now request me for a few days or even a few weeks. I’m still assigned to new ones as well. Burnett is the top provider for convention work in Greater Houston. I am excited to be on the team that serves the sponsoring convention organizations with registration, administrative assistants and other jobs they need done on a temporary bases while they are in our town. I have several friends that have used them for Temp-to-Hire placements and are extremely happy with their jobs. Burnett has been good to me and I have not looked to another temp company for work.
