GO Staffing


waste-crewGO Staffing’s ready-to-work labor force can meet your temporary, short-term and long-term staffing needs.


GO Staffing provides motivated job seekers with a pathway to career-track employment opportunities, while offering a screened, dependable, and diverse workforce for local employers.


GO Staffing currently provides staffing solutions for the Restaurant, Hospitality, Housekeeping, Healthcare, Construction, General Labor, and Manufacturing industries.


Our thorough screening process for job candidates includes drug tests and background checks. Prior to job placement with a GO Staffing employment partner, our staff meet one-on-one with job seekers to assess the stability of their lives. We identify those who are ready to take on the demands of full-time employment, and mitigate issues that could interfere with an employee’s performance on-the-job. Our team works behind the scenes as needed to provide support services, including childcare, transportation, counseling, and crisis intervention.


How it works:

• Prior to placement with a GO Staffing employment partner, job seekers enroll in GO’s Ready to Work training program, where they complete 24 hours of soft skills instruction based on the NC Working Smart curriculum, which covers Self Management, Self Awareness, Work Ethics, Communication, and Problem Solving Skills. Students also complete the Career Occupational Preference System (COPS) Interest Inventory assessment.

• Case Managers on GO’s staff provide support services as needed during our Ready to Work training program and after job seekers are placed in a job.

• GO Staffing provides liability insurance coverage for all program participants.

“It was great working with the day laborers from Green Opportunities. Even though sorting garbage throughout the day is not an easy job, the day laborers did a fantastic job of sorting the garbage. They were very professional and understood the difference between the various waste categories. We sorted more waste than we had anticipated. Thanks for the help.”

“There’s a reason Curtis is here. He learns so fast that he is doing what needs to be done before I have to ask him. I couldn’t be happier with his attitude and hard work.”
