R.C. – General Manager

I just wanted to reach out to you in regards to [your recruiter]. He has been doing a fantastic job finding candidates for [us] that not only fit our needs, but the quality in work ethic from the candidates has greatly improved. He has made staffing for this season much easier for Brian and I, and we appreciate that very much. We are extremely happy with [your recruiter’s] efforts and we don’t want that to go unrecognized.

A.M. – Executive Vice President

There are only two people besides my wife that I would trust with the PIN for my debit card. You are one of them.

S.M. – VP of Operations

Having worked with Staff Matters and their staff for nearly 8 years, I can wholeheartedly recommend them as a staffing and recruiting partner. Their staff is always professional but also enthusiastic when it comes to helping us achieve our staffing needs. They’re aggressive in their efforts, but offer a personal touch that is somewhat rare to find these days. They take the time to fully understand our specific needs in order to qualify candidates and help us avoid costly time being wasted. Their qualification process is something only hiring managers can value since the time needed to do this properly can be exhausting.

K.P. – HR Manager

It is my pleasure to recommend Staff Matters as a top notch staffing agency. Every Staff Matters employee that I have worked with (recruiter, billing, receptionist, owner) has been positive, easy to work with and have met my needs in a timely manner. I have worked with Staff Matters for many years and have found them to be very professional, competent and helpful. Their screening process is excellent as we have always been sent reliable, productive people to fill our temporary staffing needs and have gone on to hire a lot of those people as our [own employees]. I have also used Staff Matters as a recruiter to fill permanent job openings such as Engineer, Buyer and Planner/Expeditor. We went on to sign an exclusive contract with them as our sole staffing agency.

A.M. – CEO

[The team of recruiters] at Staff Matters have helped fill highly skilled technical positions across multiple disciplines. His team coached my new managers so they better understood how to develop targeted job descriptions leading to good selections of candidates to interview. We’ve hired direct and contracted through his company for technical and administrative positions. And I continue to use his services for the majority of our recruiting needs without hesitation. If there were to be issues or complaints, Garrett is the kind of business owner who would work tirelessly to resolve. Staff Matters is certainly worth giving an opportunity.

K.B. – Director, Human Resources

I absolutely remember about the healthcare, and it’s one of the other reasons why you all are top of my list. You were on top of the regulations before they were implemented and I am forever confident that people I payroll or hire through you are in compliance with anything the regulators want to drum up.

N.M. – VP, Human Resources

From a random business (non-customer):  I think you have a wonderful company and provide excellent service to anyone who asks, customer or not!

P.M. – CEO

A business owner that we coached:   Scott was great Garrett.  He came in at the right times, pulled me aside at the right time and didn’t overstep but helped me to realign with my position and goals when it was getting muddy.

N.S. – Director

I’m grateful that we have found a local office who cares about their people to use for staffing.


P.S. Your professionalism and constant bragging about what a fantastic place Staff Matters is was epic, superheroish.

A.B. – Director, Human Resources

You have an amazing business model and a level of customer service that is unparalleled.

P.Q. – Director of Operations

Staff Matters has done an incredible job building its company into Tucson’s best staffing solution.  Garrett has given a great deal of time and effort to the business and more importantly the community.  Being in the staffing industry in Phoenix, I do not [try to compete] in Tucson in respect of Garrett and his staff.  I have a great deal of respect for Garrett, professional and personally.

C.W. – HR Generalist

I wanted to pass on some positive feedback regarding [your employee].  She has truly done a tremendous job for us here and quickly become an intricle [sic] part of our team in a very short period of time.  She has such a positive attitude and a willingness to take on anything with little to no guidance.  As an HR department it is critical that our employees feel comfortable coming to us for anything and [she] has become our go-to resource for many of our employees!  This is not an easy task with a culture of employees who don’t always embrace the change in faces or trust very easily.  She has earned their respect and I am so grateful because it has been a significant help with the workload we have.

G.G. – Acting Plant Manager

We are very happy with Staff Matters as an organization. Scott & Gloria are terrific. They are professional, courteous and pay attention to detail. The recruiting staff screen applications well and follow up well.  Your billing & payroll services are spot on. I would easily recommend Staff Matters, if asked, as recruitment agency.

D.G., Vice President

Staff Matters is awesome and I so wish I could have you at the table every single time. You are by far the best in the business in Tucson and I always appreciate your work and willingness to jump in and help. I bring you in whenever I have the opportunity!

J.B. – Talent Acquisition Specialist

Staff Matters has been instrumental in recruiting talent for our positions. The recruiting staff goes above and beyond expectations to ensure our needs are met. The team is reliable, knowledgeable, hardworking and skilled at what they do. We are fortunate to work with some of the most brilliant professionals within our community. We are thrilled to partner with you and your team! You guys have been amazing with all of our requests.

R.V. – Dept. Manager for a large business

I wanted to see how do we go about giving [your employee] a raise; he has been doing an excellent job handling the nightmare we had with our systems situation, we want to make we sure we retain him.

D.B. – Executive Director for a non-profit

Thanks, Linda. Yet another successful find! We’ll work this out with [him]. That is to say, I’ll ask [our other programmer] (whom we also found through you) to work it out with him.

I.H. – Software Engineer

Thanks again, Staff Matters has been so awesome throughout this and the past few months I have had the privilege of working with you. I will preach to everyone your commitment and excellence as a company. There has not been a single instance of me questioning your motivation and professionalism. I cannot say that about any other staffing company I have worked with before. This is the first one in 15 years where I did not feel like a commodity or product.

A.T. – Assembler

[My wife] is extremely grateful to you since you were the person that helped in placing her there. At the time she came to you, she had been struggling at her previous job. She had been treated unfairly and thought like she needed to conform to working in such environments. [The company you got her hired at] has not just treated her fairly but has welcomed her as they constantly make her feel that she is part of their team. This new environment has inspired her to learn and to invest in her professional growth within this area. Not only did you find her a job when she found herself unemployed but you placed her in the prefect place for what she needed. I want to say that it is not a single person but our whole family that is thankful for what you have done for us.

V.F. – Project Coordinator

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for allowing me the opportunity to work with you and for you providing me with such great opportunities for possible employment. [This company] has been such a great fit and I know that if you hadn’t “nudged” me and “pestered” me to just go for the initial interview in spite of the commute time, I would never have found my way here. So THANK YOU!… please keep in touch, I rather enjoyed our conversations.

J.E. – Software Engineer

From LinkedIn: “Can anyone refer me to a trusted, well-connected technical recruiter in the Tucson, AZ area?”. Reply, “Staff Matters, Inc. Garrett Kowalewski. Great Guy, great company.

J.R. – Employee, 2017

You cannot imagine how much this means to me. Staff Matters has always been so caring and thoughtful. I feel very grateful to be staffed through your agency. I can honestly say that last week was the roughest week in my life but my mom is a fighter!
