They say that anyone who stays in the staffing and recruiting business for more than three years is hooked, while those who last more than 5 years are committed (or should be!).

Our team in Michigan needs someone like you to take the reins. Can you handle the challenge of a fast-paced, rapidly-growing, reward-obsessed, people-powered team? Yes? Great!
