What people think
Amy W.I've been working with First Professional Services for nearly 15 years. They've always managed to keep me working and offered me the best possible positions for my skill set. The staff has been consistent and professional. In my years with Coop, I was hired by studios twice, including the wonderful full-time position I'm in now. For me, the best part of being a temp for Coop is the diversity of the possible positions. I've worked in so many varied departments: legal, financial, security, business affairs, licensing & merchandising and more - and I eventually found one that I truly love. Temping allowed me to figure out where I wanted to be, and First Professional Services offered me the chance to work in my favorite industry, the entertainment industry. Thanks, Coop!
Managed Services Program Manager, Fox Entertainment Grp.We have had the pleasure of working with Sila and her team at Co Op Staffing for over 7 years. During this time they have only provided an outstanding level of support! It is apparent when submitting candidates to our open positions, that this team understands the importance of grass roots recruiting. They take the time to be extremely thorough and detail oriented during candidate interviews which results in a consistent flow of quality candidates. Additionally, the level of customer service from this team cannot be matched. They are extremely responsive, and are easily accessible after hours or early mornings when needed. They also have had no problems in filling last minute and even same day requests! The team at Co Op builds and maintains solid relationships with their candidates and many employees are very happy and satisfied being represented by them! Co Op is an outstanding agency that I would recommend to anyone looking for quality temp staff, I believe they set a standard that any staffing supplier should strive for.
Alina VergaraI've been at First Professional Services coming up on two years now, and I absolutely love it here! Even though it's a tough job market, my amazing agents, Sila Shakeri and Tina Nguyen, always hook it up. I feel secure knowing that they have my back; they always push for me to their clients and have done their best to cater their submissions to fit my personal industry interests, so I've not only always had work, but I've had work that I love! My rockstar agents are also super reachable and friendly, and have gone above and beyond on multiple occasions. I can't say how much I appreciate them! I definitely plan on staying with First Professional Services for a while.
Max LanceJill and Sila and the whole staff at First Professional Services helped me get my foot in the door of the entertainment industry. When I graduated college and didn't know how to land my first job, Jill and Sila assigned me desks at Sony and Fox so I could get a taste of the assistant life. I received a crash-course in entertainment while getting helpful feedback about what I could improve upon. My temp assignments resulted in numerous full-time offers, and I transitioned from being a temp to working on a Fox Sports show that traveled around the world. When I came back and needed to find my next gig, Jill and Sila got me right back in the mix, which lead to another full-time job and I haven't looked back since. Every time a company tasks me with finding a temp or a new hire, First Professional Services is my first call. They send over smart, qualified and dependable candidates who are always eager to find out what the next opportunity will bring.
Erica SchreiberI wholeheartedly recommend First Professional Services! Sila and Tina are always responsive, responsible, and enthusiastic. They have kept me steadily working for over two years and work with my schedule as a freelance writer, which is really important to me. If you're looking for a company to temp with, or to provide high quality workers, you've come to the right place.
Tracy DulayFirst Professional Services is an excellent company with wonderful people behind it! I worked with First Professional Services for 5 years while on-site at Fox Studios managing the temporary hiring process with Randstad Sourceright's MSP division. First Professional Services was my "go-to" supplier for Fox Studio's Administrative needs: Administrative Assistants, Executive Assistants, and various Coordinator positions. If I was still working within the entertainment industry, I would still be working with First Professional Services. I highly recommend them. Jill and Sila are my favorite people to work with on a daily basis - my trusted partners! They are both extremely hard-working, very professional and the nicest people you will ever be blessed to work with!
