    Haily Smith

    Operations Manager

    Haily is our Senior Employment Specialist, she joined Express Employment Professionals in April 2018. She was born and raised in McKeesport, PA but her heart is right here at Express. Haily is our most tenured employment specialist and she is invested in building relationships with our clients and our associates to ensure the best fit is found for both. She wants nothing more than to help hard-working people, just like you, achieve gainful employment.

    Haily also is devoted to building our brand locally and wants to diversify our services further. She wants to grow throughout Express and follow the business wherever it may take her. If she's not in the office, she's most likely with her family. Haily aspires to continue her education certifications and is currently pursuing becoming PHR certified.

    We asked Haily, "Why Express?" She said, " I love working with the dedicated and responsive team we have grown here. We pride ourselves on keeping a very positive and upbeat culture, we all know how to play on each others' strengths, have fun, and get it done. It is extremely gratifying to work in such a great environment where the work is rewarding and you are helping people and impacting businesses in a positive way. I love making a difference in the lives of our associates and helping staff our local community." Well said, Haily, keep crushing it!

    Cassie Armstrong

    Office Coordinator

    Cassie is our Office Coordinator, she joined Express Employment Professionals in November 2019. She was born and raised right here in the Penn Township area, which makes her the perfect first face for you to see when you walk in our office! Cassie handles a lot of our "behind the scenes" work, including answering phone calls from clients and associates, making inquiry calls to prospects, filing the paperwork you fill out when you come in, keeping the office tidy, and arguably one of the most important things to our associates: making sure they get paid!

    If she's not in the office, Cassie is either playing some kind of sport or rooting for her favorite teams with her husband John and her son Jacob. Makes sense, Cassie graduated from Clarion University in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in sports management and a minor in business. She wants our office to double in size within the next year and is dedicated to making it happen!

    When Cassie joined the team, she did it with, in her words, "A desire to help people. It's the community I grew up in, the people I grew up with. I love doing what I can to help people find a great career, and it starts right here at Express." Couldn't have said it better ourselves, Cassie!

    Recruiting Specialist

    Jesse is our Recruiting Specialist, he joined Express Employment Professionals in December 2019. He was born and raised in McKeesport, PA and is excited to get to know our local communities. Jesse spends his day doing phone interviews and talking to applicants about their skills and experiences!

    Jesse is also developing his marketing muscles when in the office. He helps man some of our social media accounts, as well as this website! Outside of the office, you'll probably catch Jesse hanging out with Douglas, his pug and best friend.

    What's Jesse been working on lately? He says: "Acting on recruiting strategies and helping bring in great people to work great jobs! I want to help everybody elevate their career to the next level! I'm also slowly working on speaking Japanese, I hope to visit Japan within the next five years and want to be able to read the subway signs!" Ganbare, Jesse! (That means, "Keep at it"!)
