Company Description

About the Company
Area Wide’s seasoned staff pours 35+ years’ experience into every project. Our professional in-house recruiting team—the most skilled in the Greater Washington DC Area—can fill any group or mock trial, from an intimate few to many hundreds; we do our most creative sourcing when recruiting low-incidence! For location tests, we seamlessly staff and manage the entire process. At our privately owned building, enjoy classroom-style or individual booth configurations, on-time starts (thanks to ample free parking directly outside our door), and a kitchen stocked with fridges, freezers, microwaves and ovens, plus its own viewing room. No product, from cigarettes to alcohol, is off-limits!

Area Wide's clients trust a consistent, effective experience every time they walk through our doors. Our breadth of services has made us the area's one-stop-shop for methodologies across the board. If you do not see your needs listed here, contact us. Located in the heart of Montgomery County, MD, we recruit from all over the Metro DC Area, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
