We believe everyone deserves a chance.

Working Fields is a staffing agency with a unique peer support model born from our founder’s experience in recovery, incarceration, and socially responsible business.

We work with any motivated jobseeker to fill entry-level through senior positions for employers across Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. Jobseekers receive ongoing support via peer coaching and strong account management. We also work closely with community organizations to provide necessary resources or referrals.

Our mission-driven, person-centered, relationship-focused approach promotes equitable hiring practices, long-term retention, and diverse, inclusive workplaces. Together with our partners, we provide everyone the opportunity for employment.


Our relationship with Working Fields is essential to our successful operation. The program helps with reentry for the participants and aids in our production/shipping needs. It is a win/win situation for which we are grateful.

I really didn't think I was going to be having this kind of success before I started. This is a program that doesn't just put you in the right direction. They help steer and guide you. And I think that was what kept me pushing forward is that even though I wanted to give up, no one else did.

It's an additional resource. It's not just another avenue of the temp staffing model... I've got an EAP I don't have to really pay for.

It was huge to be able to talk to somebody at Working Fields, have them treat me like a human being, and connect me with companies who were willing to give me a chance.

Rhino Foods has been very fortunate to partner with Working Fields for the past several years. We firmly believe that everyone deserves a second, and sometimes a third chance and Mickey and his company have been instrumental in helping us find people that are looking for that chance. We are proud to have several associates as full-time workers at Rhino!

If it wasn't for Working Fields, I really don't know how I would have gotten a job and a second chance to get my life together and reunite with my family.
