Does your sign spin around, revisited

I was checking my analytics and noticed that this 2008 post was getting a lot of traffic, so I figured I'd revisit the topic of sign spinning (a/k/a "human directional services") and Tryden Staffing in particular.

It turns out that Jobster has posted details on the secret to getting hired at Tryden Staffing. (Hint: there is no secret.)

Tryden Staffing has its own website, but it's for employees only. ( is a recommended resource for employees.)

Another firm, Builders Marketing Group, does have a public-facing website that speaks of their human directional services in detail.

BMG provides the best Human Directional Service available anywhere. We consistently achieve 98-100% attendance across the board, and have many quality control systems in place to ensure that you are getting the highest level of service available from anyone....

With a pool of over 7500 employees in California alone, BMG is large enough
to handle any and all of your Human Directional needs, yet small enough to
care about always doing whatever it takes to keep your business.

But, in an interesting turn of events, Tryden Staffing and Builders Marketing Group are actually the same firm.

Tryden Staffing is California’s Premier Marketing, Advertising and Promotional Staffing Agency. We are the inhouse recruiting firm for Builders Marketing Group.

A WHOIS search of (plus one of reveals an underlying firm, JL Enterprises of Temecula (third-party info here and here). But they do seem to conceal their identity a bit.

Unless, of course, there's a sign spinner in front of 43218 Business Park Dr # 105.
