Express Employment Professionals

“My wife, Nancy, and I opened our doors Sept 8, 2014,” Robert Whitson says. “We’re a full staffing service, providing everything from general labor, to high level professional, to full HR consulting. Express is the third largest temp agency in North America, with over 760,000 franchises. Express is the only staffing company that is 100% franchisee owned – so we’re not a ‘company’ store – we fully own our business and are vested in our community.”

Express Employment Professionals has three categories of associates – temps for projects that have specified completion dates, temps with no set ending date, and evaluation hires – for clients who don’t have time to read resumes and conduct interviews, who are seeking a permanent employee. Express will send an associate out for a trial period – if it’s a good fit, the client can hire the associate to stay on with no additional fees.
“Our customer service is what really sets us apart. We take a very specific profile of all our associates and do a full vetting. We know their skills, education, prior employment history and pay – our staffing consultants review all applicants and conduct full-fledged interviews. Then we put them to work.” Robert and Nancy offer a guarantee, checking in with clients to make sure Express associates are working out – there’s no charge for the first four hours if the client is not satisfied. “Durango is a challenging job market,” Robert says. “It can be hard to find a job. We advocate for our associates and work hard to find them positions they will excel at. We’re large enough to support both our clients and our associates, but small enough to care.”

Robert praises the Chamber as a huge resource for data. “I can go to Jack Llewellyn’s office and ask where the highest unemployment is in the county. He can draw up a map and give me demographics that show where my services are most needed. And the networking opportunities are terrific.”

“There are challenges every day – but we like to meet those challenges. The most rewarding thing is putting people to work. We get ‘thank you’s from both clients and associates.”
