Preferred Temporary Services, Inc. opened its doors in 1993, after it was clear that there was a need for contractual work in both small and large businesses in the Canton, Ohio area. The goal of PTSI was to take away the responsibility, and ultimately the headache, that many business owners faced in hiring employees and running day to day operations. Since 1993, PTSI has done just that, saving countless companies time and money.
Although we are a growing business, we maintain the caring, compassionate, personal approach that skyrocketed this small locally owned and operated staffing office to where it is at today. From not only a business perspective, but a personal one as well, PTSI makes it a priority to know who our customers are, what their business is about, and how we can meet their needs.
From the top down, the staff at PTSI understands our customers’ business, which enables us to provide them with the best service possible. There are no representatives here, only highly knowledgeable, personal staff that know not only about the companies we serve, but about the customers that operate them. We believe that these close personal ties to our customers and their businesses are what have helped PTSI to be one of the most trusted staffing agencies in the Stark County, Ohio area. Well established and well organized, our customers know that PTSI is here to stay.
The main staff members of Preferred Temporary Services, Inc. that keep PTSI running like a well-oiled machine are the President, Doug Hill, and the Office Manager, Cheryl Shaw. Both have been loyal employees of PTSI since its start in 1993. Our President, Doug Hill, can be contacted directly, as he personally involves himself in all day to day operations of PTSI. This hands on approach assures our customers that there is no business too big or too small, PTSI is here to diligently serve the needs of all.
