"When I first moved to LA, I was unsure if I would be able to find steady work. A friend recommended Coast and I'm happy they did. The onboarding process was professional and efficient. Coast helped me find steady work within a week of my move at top hospitals. I know they have my best interest in mind and go the extra mile for me. Coast welcomed me to the family and made the move to CA worth it. "
