Fast paced friendly jobs they give you!! I love the fact that they give you hours that works around your schedule. But overall Forge is a great temp service to work for.
Very professional, friendly staff. They have helped me find jobs that fit my experience and work around my schedule. As a disabled veteran, I’ve gone months without being able to find a job, and they were able to get me placed within a week.
Great company always has jobs takes care of their employees very well. They have wide variety of jobs. Good place for temporary work or temp to hire.
Forge is a great starting point for anyone looking to start out somewhere. They will find you a job fast. All you have to do is call up there and tell them you are looking for work. After a short informative video, you will be eligible for work.
I have enjoyed my time at Forge as they have consistently provided me with a work experience that was fulfilling and progressive. I was taught skills that have become very valuable within my line of work including: how to operate machinery such as forklifts, clamp trucks and stand up pickers. I learned great skills on how to properly work within a group of individuals working on the same project in the most effective way possible. Coordinating a chain of command and executing the planned task within the desired time frame and was highly successful and respected within our department of shipping and receiving.
I love forge and the compassion they have for their workers. It’s not just an agency it’s more like a family, they make sure you’re safe comfortable have long-term work, and update you with better opportunities as it arises.
