Austie Smith
Payroll & Benefits Specialist
Hometown: San Diego, CA

I am grateful to be able to be part of such an amazing company. I started with Job Brokers (now TruPath!) in 2010, and it has been quite the journey. I was hired to be a Receptionist with basic responsibilities of answering the phone and greeting people who came into the office. I was quickly promoted to Front Office Administrator, which allowed me to play a key role in our hiring process (candidate screening, new hire processing, background & eligibility requirements, etc.). In 2013, my role was further expanded to Operations Specialist. While I am still an integral part hiring and onboarding, I also now get to work in the fields of workers’ comp, payroll, and safety. My path continues!

I enjoy interacting with my team members as well as our contract employees, clients, and vendors on a daily basis. I strive to give the best customer service possible to every person who enters our office to ensure they have a great experience. Everyone here is treated as an equal in a fun yet respectful manner. It truly makes me enjoy coming to work… that is… after I’ve had a few minutes to wake up and get into my groove. I love my job. Mornings? Not so much.

Having never worked in the staffing industry prior to TruPath, I am grateful that I have been able to adapt and excel in additional roles and responsibilities over the years. I am challenged on a daily basis and I couldn’t be happier. I enjoy tackling new opportunities within my company and I look forward to what the future holds!
