“Exceptional Service and Fantastic Results“

Black-Peak has filled four positions for me over the past two years. I can’t say enough about the work ethic and professionalism of their team. I have partnered with many agencies and “Black-Peak is by far the best I have experienced”. I am very pleased with the personnel we brought on board, working with Black-Peak was a pleasure.

Personalized service is what sets Black-Peak apart from other agencies. Jim took the time to understand my needs, rolled up his sleeves and got down to business.  He runs his company with “old school values”, he is easy to work with, always available, and very focused on producing results.

Erin worked closely with me on several projects. She is highly organized, a great communicator, and a true professional. Erin consistently churned out qualified well-vetted candidates saving me time and providing great options. She is always pleasant, takes pride in her work and truly cares. The service Erin provided exceeded my expectation.

Thank you, Jim, Erin, and Black-Peak staff for helping FP/Pregis provide the “World Class Service Staff” our customers deserve.

We engaged Black-Peak and Jim Bernier in particular at a critical time in our company. We had just signed a large contract and needed to spool up a whole new team with some difficult to find skills in the aerospace industry. Black-Peak took care of the details and very efficiently found at least three very qualified prospects per position. Being a small company, having Jim’s team provide most of the HR support we needed made what can be a difficult process much simpler. Beyond just the basic sorting of resumes, Black-Peak provided added value services such as background checks and drug testing. I would recommend Jim and his team without any reservations.
