During a difficult period in my life I found myself unemployed (December 2017). After receiving a suggestion from a friend, I was told to see Barb Karr at Abel in Lemoyne. I had never been to Abel before, and wasn’t from the Harrisburg area, so I had no idea what type of staffing company they were. I called and set up an appointment immediately. Immediately upon entering the door I was greeted with smiles and a wonderful staff of ladies. I completed my testing and sat down with Barb. Instantly, I knew I was going to like her. She made me feel welcome and I knew she was going to do whatever she could to help me out. For the first time in a while I felt like everything was going to be alright.
That very day I received a phone call from Barb. “I have an interview for you!” I couldn’t have been happier. Things were finally starting to fall into place.
I am still employed with Abel to this day. After 434 days I am still 100% confident that Barb, my recruiter, will and has advocated for me, supported me, guided me and has been there for me no matter what the issue.
I don’t share my life situation and hurdles with many people, but Barb knows it all. She supports me in my decision both professionally and personally. No matter what the circumstances I can always count on an honest and compassionate answer from her.
My life has definitely changed for the better since I walked through the doors of Abel. I went to Abel looking for a job, in the long run I got much more than that. I have a friend.
I would absolutely recommend Abel to anyone who is in the market for a job!
