Jojo Varona

Liz has probably placed you or someone you know in some wonderful position at some wonderful company at some time over the last couple of years. If she doesn't know you, she probably knows someone who does.

Jojo Varona has been recruiting since 1996 and has been with The Job Shop since 1998. A native San Franciscan, Jojo received his BA degree in Speech and Communication Studies from San Francisco State University. He has a solid background in Management, Customer Service and Human Resources. Jojo's Human Resources career developed while he was managing stores for a nationally known home design and retail chain. An outstanding, consistent track record of high productivity and customer/candidate satisfaction has earned Jojo a loyal roster of accounts and candidates. To know him is to smile.

“Amidst the downturn of our economy four years ago, I stumbled into the Job Shop on my last thread of optimism and hope. Having met with a number of staffing agencies prior, I was expecting the same detached “corporate” environment, but was pleasantly surprised to find just the opposite. Every person, from the receptionist to the various recruiting agents were all so refreshingly kind, flexible and attentive. I immediately met with Jojo Varona, who quickly embraced my resume and eagerness for a job with the kind of tenacity that we all hope for in a recruiting agent. Jojo spruced up my resume in ways that I would have never thought of and despite my lack of experience at the time, he treated me no different from any other candidate. Within a couple of weeks, I began temping at my current job where I have been for the past four years. If it wasn’t for Jojo and the rest of the staff at the Job Shop, I have absolutely no idea where I would be today. I would recommend any family member, friend, job seeker or employer to meet with Jojo and his staff. It will truly be worth their while.”

She's a whiz with numbers and has now joined the ranks of those lucky telecommuters! Tammy is master of The Job Shop's Payroll/Accounts Payable departments and rejoices every morning at not having to sit in traffic.

Warren Manuntag has lived in the Bay Area for over 39 years and received a Bachelor's degree in Nursing from San Francisco State University, but decided to pursue a different career path. Warren has over 9 years of sales experience, primarily in print media. He has been a recruiter for another staffing firm, but has found The Job Shop to be unique and passionate about their applicants and clients. He has also owned his own special event planning business specializing in weddings. Warren is eager and excited to provide excellent customer service to all of The Job Shop's applicants and valued clients.

“The JobShop is a blessing! After a month or so of signing up with them I was placed for a temp position. Three months later I was offered a permanent position and now I am happily employed at an amazing company. A special thanks to Warren Manuntag for looking out for me.”

Tammy Doss

Michelle has been working with The Job Shop since 1998. She has a degree and a background in HR and enjoys helping candidates find the perfect working environment. On her days off, Michelle is devoted to spending time with family and friends.

"I’ve worked with The Job Shop since 2006 and they have been stellar in sending their best candidates for temporary support. They are experienced recruiters, who consistently source out some of the most qualified individuals to fill all of my temp assignments. Most of these candidates are worthy of permanent hire and I often wish that I had open positions to place these great candidates into full time opportunities. Always in the market for temp-support, I have had to call The Job Shop last minute, and without fail, they provide skilled candidates - in a timely manner - each and every time. The Job Shop is my go-to for temp assignments and I highly recommend contacting Michelle, Warren or Jojo if you are in the market for qualified support. The Job Shop staff is the best in the recruiting business."
