Max Shifrin graduated from the University of Maryland’s (UMD) Smith School of Business last May. Originally from Seattle, Max accepted a debate scholarship at UMD and ventured out to the east coast to experience a different approach to life. Possessing a deep appreciation for humanities, Max extended his education after studying abroad in New Zealand to also include a fifth year, so he could earn a minor in Philosophy, in addition to his B.S. in Finance. While at Maryland, Max volunteered with the intellectually and developmentally challenged community via the organization Best Buddies International. It was through his volunteer work that Max further realized his desire to touch a person’s life every day with care, compassion, and involvement. With his desire to return to the west coast and develop his career in a city larger than Seattle, Max knew that Los Angeles was the place for him.
Max took an unusual route in finding employment in Los Angeles. While visiting family in LA last January, Max picked up an LA Business Journal and flipped to an article entitled “Best Places to work in LA.” Roth Staffing was #2 on that list, so he pursued them and they pursued him. Having just celebrated its 20th anniversary, Roth Staffing is known in the industry for differentiating itself from their competition by placing a very high value on nurturing all their professional relationships. Roth genuinely cares about the people they serve and are proud to share their commitment to excellence with others. Roth Staffing boasts a wide variety of accolades including “Best in Client Services” and Inc. Magazine’s “#1 Fastest Growing, Privately Held Company in the US.”
Max thoroughly enjoys his return to the west coast and looks forward to every day he goes into his Century City office, being surrounded by the other passionate staff at Roth. What makes them so unique is their commitment to being a sales organization that is people-oriented. Roth is mindful of supporting everyone involved in the work they do: whether it’s their clients, the people they help find jobs, or Roth’s very own employees. Their Mission, vision, values, purpose, and promise are each an integral part of their culture -- not just words, by the way they truly live and breathe their philosophy in each branch and corporate office. From his first day on the job, Max understood why Roth Staffing Companies was voted one of the top best places to work in LA.
