I would certainly have no qualms about being employed by your agency again sometime in the future. Although obviously not any time soon!!!!

I contacted Ambitek last year about employment. They quickly responded and helped me get a job! I now have a full time job thanks to Ambitek and their staff. They have always paid me on time and have always been there to help me if I needed any advice! Now me and my family are doing great all thanks to Ambitek.
