I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Mike since 2006. I met Mike when he placed me into a position at the Bank that he was working for at that time.   I considered Mike and great colleague and always enjoyed seeing him whenever I found myself at the corporate offices.  Mike did such a great job in providing a good fit for both myself and the bank that I was there almost 13 years until I decided to take another position with another bank. In those nearly 13 years, Mike always had my best professional interest in mind. We went through a number of opportunities always preparing me for the next step.


Mike is the consummate professional with much candor. Always shoots straight. Although Mike was not directly involved in my move to my present bank, he was involved at the very beginning in providing some introductions to the people he felt I should be communicating with.


I consider Mike a great friend, coach, colleague. Mike has a nose for this industry and business and I value his opinions and advice.

In closing. Mike is a valued asset to any organization.

I can always count on TriStaff for all my staffing needs. They are always professional and go the extra mile for their clients. I have had a 17 year long relationship with them & their service is unmatched. I used various temp agencies in the past and I always choose TriStaff above all others due to their amazing service and ability to find the right candidates. I always refer friends & family searching for work to Karen and her staff knowing that they will be in good hands.

I had the chance to have Will represent me as a recruiter with the company Entriq. It was a tremendous experience as he facilitated the process and my onboarding in the new company. I would use his services again as a recruiter because of his dedication and excellent values as well as his level of expertise as far as recruiting goes.

The BEST in San Diego! I contacted this company needing a typing certificate. With the ongoing pandemic, it was difficult to locate a business willing to assist me. With the help of Karianna , I was able to be accommodated and seen same day! She went above and beyond for me. Not only did she insure I made it to the testing location, she also followed up with me and was so kind( meanwhile I was a frustrated hot mess). Karen, the manager at the facility was also amazing! The entire staff was kind.  I would have not been able to further my career without the help of Karianna. She is the definition of A+ customer service and someone I definitely would hire and want on my team! I love TRISTAFF 🙂  10/10 rating from a happy “now employed” customer!!!

Karianna responded to my email very quick,  I emailed her my resume Monday she scheduled an interview Tuesday and I started working Thursday. After months of going to interviews and not getting any call backs it was refreshing to hear the good news. I wish I found TriStaff a couple months ago, but I’m happy I found them. Sharon interviewed me and was very friendly and determined to help find me a job. Rather than starting me the following week, she asked me if I could start the next day. Thank you Sharon! I enjoy the location I’m currently working at! Anyone looking for a friendly staffing agency I highly recommend TriStaff!
