We have been working with Phoenix Hometown Hires for a couple of years and have been impressed by the amount of time and dedication that they provide to their clients. We have been fortunate in that we have been able to place three of their clients in full time positions here at CastleBranch.  We will continue to utilize Phoenix Hometown Hires to help fill some of our open positions.
