JobsNOW: a local employment agency ready to connect workers with employers

Staff Right hosts job fairs approximately once per quarter, but you can also apply online or in person at one of three sites

(WKBN) – Workers interested in factory jobs were filling out applications Tuesday at a job fair, hoping Staff Right could establish a local connection for them.

“It’s an employee market. There is a huge call for labour, skilled and unskilled in the region,” said Derrick Hart, Managing Director of Staff Right.

The opportunity was for general labor, entry level labor positions. Workers just had to be able to lift 50 to 70 pounds and be prepared to work in harsh conditions, be it hot or cold.

Workers would be paid the same as anyone applying on the street with the company. Staff Right is just trying to make the connection for these temporary positions to be hired.

“It’s really a career path where they can learn a trade and go on to a great career,” Hart said.

Flexibility in work schedule is the key to success right now. Not everything is a first shift.

There is also a need for general assembly workers, press operators, welders and fitters. Also some office administrative assistants.

Staff Right is a local staffing company, paid by employers to find workers. You simply participate in the process.

“They will interview us. We will organize them with interviews. They will go to work and be hired. So we are about 200 a year being hired through Staff Right,” Hart said.

Staff Right hosts job fairs approximately once a quarter, but you can also apply online at or in person from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at one of the following Staff Right locations:

— 7301 West Blvd., Boardman (330-726-6754)
