Meet Christyn, one of the Recruiting Managers in the Modesto branch! Christyn has always worked in customer service or sales and feels she has exceptional skills in both. She has a way of talking with others to make sure they feel comfortable, and she is excellent at training others to ensure that all policies and procedures are met and followed. One work-related accomplishment that Christyn is proud of was when she was 29 years old. She stayed with a company for over nine years, shy of ten. She worked hard and was recognized for her hard work and loyalty to the company and clients. One goal that Christyn has now is to crush goals that seem ambitious to others. She has big enough goals to bring in a 6-figure income for herself and her children. Christyn is excited to work at Hire Up Staffing because she will learn about the staffing world.
