An extremely dedicated staff who not only cares for the "employer" paying clients, but also nurtures the worker bees of the world. They create such a comfortable environment for the worker which is not the "normal" atmosphere you'd likely encounter with other firms. It's been a fantastic expeience!

Burnett Specialists Houston is an outstanding Staffing Agency!! The amount of time I spent searching for a job was very fast. The recruiters specialized in all my needs and followed-up with me consistently. Burnett Staffing recruiters not only took time to meet my needs in a timely manner, they are a super customer service friendly team. My recruiters welcomed me and got to know me and what I am looking for in my career. I was offered a contract within two weeks of registering with Burnett Specialist. I was at work on a Monday and now I am hitting the ground and running. I highly “RECOMMEND” Burnett Specialists for a great career opportunity.

Very happy job seeker!

I recently worked with Shelley Blount at Burnett Specialists and I must say I have never work with someone as professional, experienced, and helpful as her. She maintained consistent contact with me and responded to phone calls and emails exceptionally fast. She went above and beyond to understand my wants and needs in a career and worked with me to find the perfect placement. I would recommend anyone to give Burnett Specialists a call.

I've been with Burnett Staffing for almost a year now. I've had the opportunity of working with the best companies and meeting many people in the community. I look forward to what 2015 has to offer! Thank you for this opportunity!

I highly recommend Burnett to anyone seeking employment. I worked with Shelley, Nicole and Molly to find the position that was just right for me. One of the biggest reasons I recommend Burnett is because they are on your side and take the time to figure out what position would be a good fit for you and only present you with those positions that are complimentary. Many recruiters I have used in the past are all about numbers and they don't care if you fit with the job or not - Burnett is first class at listening to you and finding you YOUR position. They are an excellent organization and I believe they are successful because of the core values that they have as a company. I refer all job-seekers to them and will continue to do so!

I haven't had much luck with recruiters in the past but I contacted Burnett's IT department and they really helped. Burnett has an industry understanding that leads in the recruiting area. Michele is one of the most dedicated and talented recruiters that I have had the honor of working with. Her leadership capitalizes on an understanding of both the requirements as well as skills of her recruits. She has an uncanny ability to provide real world experience to the recruits she represents.

I have been with Burnett Specialists Southeast office for 9 years. Heidi, Brandy and the other employees there are very kind and helpful. I have gained so much knowledge from working Temp work. These ladies are like family to me...keep up the good work.

Searching for a job that compliments your skills as well has all of the cultural and other qualifications you are looking for in an employer can sometimes be very challenging on your own. With the help of Burnett, I was able to find two different companies that I thoroughly enjoyed working for. Within 2 weeks of working with Penny Murray at Burnett, I was able to find a position that fit my skill set and had the working environment I was searching for. About a year later, when I decided to switch career paths, I reached out to Penny again and with her help, along with Morgan Taylor's, I was able to find a job within 2 weeks that was exactly what I was looking for. Everyone I have met at Burnett has been professional, friendly, and inspirational when working with them. They have helped me to shape my career and I would highly recommend this firm to anyone searching for employment.
