Video Testimonials


“I’ve been working as a temp through advance for almost a year now. I wish I had discovered this temp agency many years ago. Lisa Pierce got me started, then Stephanie Galvez took me the rest of the way. She’s flexible, knowledgeable, and has made a huge difference in my life. I recommend Ad-Vance to everyone even thinking of seeing what’s available. It’s so much better than sifting through email job boards.”
 – Kathy


”Working with Stephanie and Jana has been wonderful. They are each detail-oriented, communicative, and knowledgeable. I have greatly enjoyed the events that I was able to be a part of and for the other positions offered to me. Great company to work for and with!”
– B R


“Fantastic company to work for, Stephanie is a great boss. I work in hospitality and have plenty of options for banquet work. I’ve been working for the company for a year and a half, and I cannot say enough about the opportunities available for extra money.”

“Mr. Cookingham and Mr. Sperduto have completed their service with the Neighborhood Development Services Department for the City of North Port.  I wanted to express our gratitude for these two employees. These two gentlemen were instrumental in completing a very large project for the City. Mr. Cookingham with his technical knowledge of Planning and impact fees was able to conduct the impact fees analysis for the Braves Stadium Complex, and Mr. Sperduto for his project management, plan review and inspection services at the Braves Stadium Complex.  Their services were invaluable to this department and to the City.”

“Donna Dimeo and Phyllis Pritchard have done a great job! They are very reliable, fit well with the team and ask great questions. They both got up and running independently very quickly and it’s been a pleasure to have both of them.”
– Stacey Clark, Customer Care Manager – Tervis


“Our company is going through an integration process. My position was created which merged two positions. While being with the company only a month, I was left with months of backlogged work and our current Manager want to finally retire. We needed some to assist with Administrative duties. I had the pleasure of meeting Gazella previously in a customer service environment. She was lovely, helpful, as well as knowledgeable. It is a small world. She was the candidate presented from your organization. From the moment she came in she was able to learn quickly, deal with a fast-paced environment, and collaborate with staff. Budget wise if we could keep her long-term we would. I would recommend here for upcoming projects. Attitude, dedication, and care are personality traits that cannot be taught. Thank you for your time as well as providing a stellar lady to help out.”
– Julie Gerharz, Eco Consultants


“Michelle Reed is one of the nicest people I have ever spoken with. She was so kind and helpful. Choosing a career, or let alone a new job, can be so stressful, and she was there to assist me every step of the way!”

“I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Jazzmine. She has stepped right into our front desk position without any problems or issues. She has been pleasant, polite, professional, diligent, quick, and eager (these are a sampling of the feedback I received from our shareholders and office staff) to take on the assignments we have tasked her with. We are and will continue to look for more tasks we can hand off to her. Thank you, so much, for sending us such an extremely qualified person to help get us through this busy season”
– Debra


“Melanie is doing an excellent job and we are so glad we selected her for this role. She is the perfect fit and I really appreciate the smooth process that Chris provided; especially with our last minute needs.

It is much appreciated!”

– Karen


“I have always had confidence in Ad-Vance Talent Solutions. They are courteous not only to the employers they work with but to the employees that work for them. I have signed up with every agency out there in the Sarasota/Bradenton area with no calls for months. I heard over and over, we don’t have anything.
Ad-Vance treated me as a partner and showed great respect. They have made it clear that my success directly affects their reputation. This is why for any position I am sent to, I not only represent myself I represent Ad-Vance. I am happy to say, I have been successful in this regard.
While seeking employment, I stepped into Ad-Vance and a week later, I had an interview. The week after, I started work. I love the work that I do and Ad-Vance matched me not only to the type of work I enjoy but the exact position I wanted. I would ask that anyone looking for employment or looking to hire professionals, Ad-Vance should be your only stop.”
