Day shift one night -- a weak -- CLA drivers. Fantastic and like you said what we get paid to do as owners of express offices which we are gonna talk a little bit about. High article I saw. About like client what clients look for in hiring and staffing agencies so when you say that. Well we get paid to do there is any reason why people secure your services explain it's not just that we just my -- dumpster people throw money out as there's a great service there. Well you know what we do is we prescreen -- applicants for them I mean you can imagine trying to priors from over the -- Yeah pizza delivery there's a huge difference. And these people aware of remember any business they're going to be located here from not Colorado. And have a great sound great business and shiny and they don't have tying or the resources to do what we do -- that Steve. Unemployment and check their employment status they're verification possible and that's important in the background check because they are going to be going team. Restaurants and delivering their product after hours the security. And clean backgrounds of going Portman. -- one thing in my first met with these people they were asked you know Basil how you -- your house people we aren't. So you know harm as you and I know you might hire twenty you'll be like he a potential out exactly and I found. Well and that screening and tapping into that person's personality and -- and really doing those extra soft it's soft things. Not just what time can you be there and already aware and here's the address and good luck with it. But really those -- things and making that great that I feel like sometimes rip from like match makers like this you know the millionaire matchmaker and instead of the staffing agency.
