MILPITAS and SAN JOSE, Calif., June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Temporary staffing agency Snelling Staffing Services has opened a full-service Silicon Valley office in the San Jose suburb of Milpitas. The new location, which will focus largely on light industrial and office/clerical staffing, is the company's first in Silicon Valley and third in the greater San Francisco Bay region.
"There are a lot of opportunities in Silicon Valley, especially in the temporary employment sector of the light industrial industry. As the economy begins to recover and grow, Silicon Valley businesses are looking for short-term, lower-risk alternatives to hiring full-time staff to meet increased demands," said Jeff Barthold, general manager of Snelling's Milpitas office.
The new office will be located at 1156 Jacklin Road in Milpitas, just east of I-680. Snelling also has offices in Hayward and Alameda, California.
"Temporary staffing is a good solution for many employers who need talent, but are hesitant to commit to a full-time staff," added Barthold. "We do a very good job of maximizing efficiencies. For example, a lot of customers are hungry for a staffing service that provides thorough candidate screening. From the time a candidate walks into a Snelling office, we do everything from e-Verify and background checks to behavioral screenings. We're very thorough, and we always provide our clients and candidates with the highest level of service."

Since opening its first office in 1951 in Pennsylvania, Snelling has grown to more than 100 office locations throughout the United States.
