April Crowder - Sr. Administrative Assistant

I would recommend Optimum Solutions to everyone I can. When I started working with Freddy and Opt-Sol, I previously had finished my MBA and was fresh off an overseas internship. He was very upfront with me from the beginning in letting me know that I would need to start slow and build my experience here in the US back up. Freddy raked over job after job for me to find exactly what I was looking for. His tenacity and endurance in finding me the perfect fit for me was encouraging and gave me hope that I would find a career starting position when I kept getting no response from putting my application out. While going out to small and large companies alike, Opt-Sol never lost its small business feel and drive while growing and expanding.

Opt-Sol definitely cares for their people, something that is hard to find in companies today. Whether it’s a career starting position or job change, Optimum Solutions is the right fit. They never give up and neither should you!

Ted Shiferaw – Project Administrator

With the current job market changing by the day and the increasing population of highly qualified candidates relocating to the Northern Virginia/DC/Maryland area, finding a job is truly becoming extraordinary difficult.  After going online and researching several temp agencies on top of putting my resume on employment search networks (Indeed, CareerBuilder) I was very lucky to find Optimum Solutions.  Within the very first week of filling out the online application and taking the placement tests, Freddy set up an interview with me and was able to find me a position working for a great non-profit the following week.  The pay was great and so was the location since dealing with traffic around this area can sometimes be a job within itself.  Even before my contract ended, the team at Opt Sol had already set up some interviews for me and remarkably set me up with another contract position that was at a higher pay rate. Whether its temporary or contract to hire position you seek, the professional and amazing customer/client relations that I found at this company are just some of the benefits that I find renovating when it comes to job placement.  Currently I am working as a Project Administrator for an architectural firm as a contract-to-hire role. To say that I would recommend Opt Sol to anyone is an understatement.  If you are a person who is serious about finding work and want to invest your time in a recruitment agency that will also invest in you and takes pride in putting you to work, all I can say is give them a chance because you will be very satisfied that you did.

Hannah Liebo - File Clerk

Freddy is a wonderful staffing agent, I moved up here from Texas and didn't know where to start. A family member knew him and got me in contact with his company at the time, our first conversation was about what "I" wanted and what I was looking for in a job opportunity. Freddy placed me at a good starter job where I could start building my knowledge on how things worked up here. Out of the three staffing agencies I have been to for help Freddy's company is the most reliable and the efficient when it comes to finding you a job that suits your needs and wants. Unlike other staffing companies Freddy will make you feel like what you want matters, he builds relationships with his clients and contractors. I really liked working with Optimum Solution's they are a great first choice

Jay Zelaya - Data Entry Specialist

Freddy and Optimum Solutions helped me after graduating from VCU and relocating back home to Springfield, VA.  I couldn’t find any work and I was having a hard time as a recent college grad.  I was introduced to Freddy and Optimum Solutions at a career fair and he was so different from all of the other staffing firms that were there.  He really listened to what i wanted and gave me real feedback and professional criticism, something no other staffing firm did.  We ended up setting up a time to meet at his office, and I felt like we built a real and honest relationship when we went over my resume and the jobs i was interested in.  He gave me advice and suggestions on what to do on my interviews so I could increase my chances and get the job.  At the end, he found me an assignment that was exactly what I needed at the time.  I would recommend Optimum Solutions to any recent college grad, like me, who is having a hard time looking for work and need help getting their career started.  Freddy builds real relationships and you can trust that he really cares about you and what you want to do.  He’ll help you get your “foot through the door.”

Michele Watt - Compliance Coordinator

After dealing with well-known temp agencies and experiencing unprofessional service, I approached Optimum Solutions because I wanted to work with a company that was professional and who cared about their people.  A couple of colleagues referred me to Optimum Solutions and spoke highly of Freddy Pineda.  They all recommended I contact him ASAP!  Their words were verbatim "Freddy will have you working tomorrow, that's how well his performance is.”   Optimum Solutions had me working immediately, literally!  I interviewed with Freddy Pineda in the morning and by the afternoon he had a job for me that started the next day.  Such a blessing for me, especially being a single mother.  Optimum Solutions’ solution was so unique due to their professionalism.  Other temp agencies, from my experience, don't truly care about their contractors or job seekers.  It’s almost as if the agencies look down on you because you are needing assistance.  Not Optimum Solutions.  They are by your side through the whole process and very welcoming.  Freddy Pineda provided info on positions available and kept his word to have me working right away.  If you are looking for a company who provides HONESTY and GREAT opportunities with no hassle, Optimum Solutions will leave you GREATLY satisfied. Most temp agencies sell you a dream, and MAYBE they contact you weeks to months later; not Optimum Solutions.  I would recommend Optimum Solutions to anyone, even individuals who currently have a full-time job and looking for a better opportunity. I've already referred people to Optimum Solutions and Freddy has already assisted them with GREAT job opportunities.

Testimonials - Clients


Arlene Levin, Vice President - Eastern Research Group, Inc.

I would like to provide my heartfelt thanks to Freddy Pineda and Optimum Solutions for providing superb support on several administrative support needs ERG has had over the past few years. ERG is a federal government contractor and on occasion our clients have requested us to provide onsite administrative assistants. I met Freddy when he worked at a different firm. I was impressed by his responsiveness and enthusiasm to learn about the position(s) and quickly provide me with potential candidates. It was a no brainer to follow Freddy to his new company, Optimum Solutions, because I knew I would be provided with the same high level of client service I had grown accustomed to and appreciated. Whether the positions were for a few weeks or a year, Optimum provided excellent, pre-screened candidates. They accommodated and coordinated special requests to have potential candidates meet with our clients. Optimum has always been flexible to changing needs and always responsive. I would whole heartedly recommend Optimum Solutions to others who need staffing services. 

Erin Moran, Assistant Property Manager - Fairlington Villages

I have worked with Freddy for many years before he started his own company, so working with Optimum Solutions was a very easy decision for us.  We have always appreciated his sense of urgency, flexibility, attention to detail and understanding of our expectations.  What we have liked most about partnering with Optimum Solutions has been their ability to always find us quality candidates whose personalities work well with our office.  Freddy always got us a perfect fit, but if they weren’t for some reason, we would get a new person immediately.  He ensured that this process was smooth and easy for everyone.  I would highly recommend Optimum Solutions to anyone looking for temporary work, or needing help finding a qualified temp for their office.  You will not be disappointed!
