Great Service Starts with Great Staff!

Our agency has been helping good people find honest work since we opened our doors in September of 2012… and that started with our staff! In the years since, our numbers have both changed and grown, but one thing remains the same: our staff is treated like family. We have some folks who work “behind the scenes” to get your time cards and paychecks processed and the following staff members are available in our branches for clients, employees, and applicants:

Darren Ziembo – Business Owner

Darren recently took over ownership of the company after the founders retired from the business.  He strives to keep the same level of customer service for clients and candidates that Canalside has been known for. Darren has unique insight into the staffing industry… because he got started as a temp! While earning his bachelor’s degree in communications from SUNY Oswego, he worked as a temp on a few industrial assignments during summer and holiday breaks. After completing his degree, he earned a permanent position in staffing. During his 10+ years in the staffing industry, he has worked in sales, client development, and direct recruiting. Clients and coworkers appreciate his drive and willingness to help out wherever he can.  Part of his success comes from understanding our client’s staffing needs firsthand- as a former temp, he understands the high demands of industry!

Jennifer Dalykas – Branch Manager

As Branch Manager, Jennifer is responsible for overall operations by overseeing recruitment, client relations, customer service, and staff. Jennifer has sourced and trained a great service team with strong industry knowledge that continues to help the branch grow and serve businesses across the Greater Rochester area.  A strong leader, Jennifer wears multiple hats within the office to get the job done; from management of operations to leading employee orientations, performance management plans, terminations, processing of weekly payroll, and health and safety awareness training. She also continues to assist staff by recruiting and interviewing applicants and maintains close relationships with the branch’s key clients.
