Premier Electrical Staffing
Here at Premier Electrical Staffing our core business is to partner with our clients and provide Skilled Electrical Labor. Since Premier began seven years ago, Mike Rhodes, Vice President of Business Development, being an unlimited licensed contractor and apprenticeship instructor, has been instrumental in offering a spring board of knowledge in training and educating our branch offices to hire through the eyes of a superintendent, rather than a typical staffing company. We like to partner with our customers and be a part of their workforce team. All of our employees are skills tested before they are deemed reliable to be sent to your project. We issue each prospective employee a written test and also evaluate their hands-on skills on conduit bending, three ways, and transformers to make sure they are properly classified.

Our vision here at Premier is to always be a results-oriented company. We measure success by our clients’ accomplishments, providing you with electrical labor solutions to help complete your projects on time, under budget, and with the highest degree of quality and productivity. We take pride in teamwork, with our customers and our field staff. We are proud to have an elite, safety conscious, skilled workforce!

We presently maintain 21 branch offices throughout the US, with the majority of our offices being scattered along the southeastern corridor, and are continually expanding. In the Carolinas, we currently have seven offices (Charleston, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Greenville, Raleigh, and Wilmington). Each office staffs a Sales Manager, Recruiter, and administrative support to ensure that all of your needs are met efficiently and promptly. Our management team includes several members that have acquired electrical licenses in multiple states with experience working for large electrical contractors enabling us to assemble a knowledge base spanning more than 100 years. A variety of national, local, large and small electrical contractors have continued to partner with us and utilize our services project after project.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your electrical staffing options with you at any time. Please feel free to contact any of our Premier branch offices and check us out on the web at www.pes123.com
