Western Truck Group has been using Golden West for several years. Our experience with Golden west and Nikki has been refreshingly different from many of my experiences hiring staff. Nikki is always responsive to any questions I have; she keeps me informed and she understands what our business is and what we are trying to achieve. I recommend Golden West and Nikki highly and would use their services again without hesitation.
