Welcome to All-Star Personnel

steve_weldonThank you for your interest in All-Star Personnel. All-Star was founded on June 3, 1996, with a driven desire to provide unsurpassed service for both our valuable customers and our talented team members that we place on assignments.

It all starts with caring about the job that we do and knowing that each new job assignment will open the door for new opportunities. It gives us a great sense of pride every time an All-Star team member accepts an assignment, works diligently, proves their worth and turns that opportunity into a long-lasting and fulfilling career. That is a huge win not only for the individual, but also for our customer and All-Star Personnel.

We believe that our collective success is achieved through the self-fulfillment of our team members on the job and in our communities. We also believe that our customers and team members have the right to be satisfied in all interaction with our agency. We stand behind our services and listen closely to their needs. We continually strive to improve the performance of our services. We strive every day to make a difference, to change someone’s life for the better. Individual job satisfaction, and positive and winning attitudes are stated All-Star objectives. We are committed to controlled growth, and staying out in front and understanding the changing working environment. All-Star Personnel aspires to be exceptional, not just successful!
