About Spec On The Job


Spec On The Job is the premiere staffing company focused on serving blue-collar industries. We partner with trucking, construction, and light industrial companies to deliver workforce solutions.

Our clients turn to us when they’re looking for an advantage in hiring qualified workers. We offer a comprehensive screening process, flexible hiring options, and – for our trucking clients – full DOT compliance. We have staff that’s accessible 24 hours a day, we’re 100% customer-focused, and our company is big enough to fill your hiring needs, but small enough to care deeply about earning and keeping your business.

Spec On The Job is ranked by the Triangle Business Journal as one of the top 30 privately-held entities in the Triangle.


Honorable Mention – Better Business Bureau’s 2019 Torch Awards for business ethics.
