Burnett Specialists - El Paso, TX

Nationally certified, woman-owned, recruiting agency, Burnett Specialists is known as the top recruiting, headhunting, and temporary staffing agency in the state of Texas. When it comes to finding a position as an employment seeker, or finding that perfect match in an employee as a hiring employer, letting the experts do the heavy lifting is a wise choice.

For more than forty-five years, their “people first” mentality has helped them master the recruiting and placement process. An awesome benefit of working with Burnett is that you will work directly with an owner of their company every step of the way. Burnett is the largest employee-owned staffing and headhunting firm in Texas. From their temporary employees to their well-tenured recruitment and leadership teams, they focus on helping careers and companies grow.

Too often, a company must invest a significant amount of time, money, and effort into locating and recruiting skilled workers. Such precious resources could be better put to use by trusting recruiting and staffing needs to an experienced employment agency with greater resources. At Burnett Specialists, they have mastered the art of temporary staffing and direct hire placement and have a proven recruitment process that achieves winning results for their clients. Last year alone, they filled over fourteen thousand new-start jobs.

Here are a few prime examples of why they are considered one of the best employment agencies in Texas:

  • Recruiters are highly knowledgeable with skills focusing on industry-specific specializations.
  • Specialize in matching top talent with the employers’ requirements across a wide range of industries that include accounting and finance, administrative, convention support, engineering, legal, light industrial, healthcare, human resources, marketing and sales, information technology, call center and customer service, supply chain as well as many others.
  • Team continuously looks out for the clients’ financial needs by conducting a consistent market analysis to help ensure prices will remain competitive within the staffing industry.

Multiple office locations in Texas: Austin (professional, delivering exceptional results), Dallas (known as Choice Specialists, serving job seekers and clients across the entire metro area), El Paso (boasting some of the longest-tenured recruiters, is a local staple in the employment agency industry), Houston (consistently ranked as the top direct-hire placement firm, one of the largest staffing agencies), San Antonio (ranked as one of the top staffing and temp agencies, providing exceptional customer service), and The Woodlands (local and knowledgeable team of recruiters that are beneficial to employers and candidates).

Agency services include direct-hire, temp-to-hire, temporary and contract staffing, vendor managed services, conventions and projects, payrolling services, and diverse skill specializations in accounting and finance, administrative, convention and event support, healthcare, engineering, human resources, information technology, legal, light industrial, real estate, sales and marketing, call center and customer service, supply chain.

When Sue Burnett founded Burnett Personnel Services in 1974 with only five employees, she used her car as collateral and a $10,000 loan for the start-up. By the end of the first year, Sue had created a profitable company.

Sue and Rusty Burnett decided to give back to the people who helped make their growing company a success. In 2010, they set up an “Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)” as a strategy for the company’s future. Both full-time team members, as well as temporary and contract staffing employees, take part in this unique ownership.

Burnett now ranks as Texas’ largest employee-owned staffing and recruitment agency by the National Center for Employee Ownership with nine offices in six major Texas cities. They are also a nationally-certified woman-owned business with Sue Burnett continuing as President.

Involved in the Community

Giving back with the intent of making a positive impact is a Burnett Core Value. Every year, the company actively searches for new ways to be involved in the community. Burnett’s internal recruitment team is awarded paid time off to volunteer their time. Whether it’s building bikes for Child Advocate’s Bike-A-Thon, teaching a Junior Achievement class to local K-12th graders, riding in the MS-150 to raise awareness and money, putting a team together for the Race-For-The-Cure or the Superhero Run, or helping to clean up the city after a natural disaster, they are proud to be a part of our community. showcases thousands of incredible businesses in more than 300 industry categories that are located in over 100 major U.S. cities.
