Square One Solutions takes the time to not only get to know the role they are hiring for but also the company and the PEOPLE they are hiring for.

When it comes to finding the ideal candidate for a position, there are numerous factors to consider. Square One Solutions strives to take into account as many of these factors as possible to increase the likelihood of a successful match. Unlike the common approach employed by national staffing firms, which can be likened to a "spray and pray" method, Square One Solutions ensures that every detail is meticulously gathered. This includes a comprehensive understanding of the unique personality traits, preferences, and expectations of each manager and supervisor. All of this information is used to precisely match the right candidate with the right job, leaving no room for doubt.

We’ve often heard of candidates showing up to jobs and asking “What does this company do”? That will never be the case with Square One Solutions. Our employees show up with an in-depth understanding of the role, the company’s culture and mission statement, and clear expectations of what is expected of them.

Karen Skowronek


Karen is from a large family and a very small town in North Dakota. After receiving a B.A. in Broadcasting, Karen worked in radio for many years before deciding to stay home to raise her four children.

Karen started working at Square One Solutions in 2015 and enjoys working with her sons, Johnny and Michael. As the President of Square One Solutions, she handles the financial aspects of Square One Solution’s day to day operations. She is so proud of what Square One has accomplished and she is so proud of our staff. She is so happy to work with them all and see first hand the changes we make everyday in people's lives. We handle every situation with kindness and care.

Johnny Skowronek


Johnny Skowronek has 20 years of experience in the staffing industry in Northern Nevada. Starting in 2004, Johnny opened a branch of Command Center and began building a base of customers. Starting mainly in construction day labor and other forms of day labor, Johnny capitalized in a market of low unemployment and high demand at a time when Reno was in an economic boom.

Johnny eventually expanded operations of Command Center to include offices in Carson City, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Mesquite, Nevada. Johnny managed the Carson City and Reno offices and handled the business development for both stores. During the economic downturn of 2008-2012, Command Center became insolvent as a company, so Johnny and his brother David opened Square One Solutions in the height of the economic downturn and rebuilt a staffing office as Square One building on the relationships and knowledge they had gained at Command Center.

As the CEO and part owner of Square One Solutions, Johnny is primarily responsible for sales, marketing and community involvement, but is also actively engaged in the recruiting and pre-screening of applicants for a variety of positions ranging from warehouse, events/hospitality, construction, and executive recruitment. Johnny has served in leadership roles for the Builders Association of Northern Nevada, the Associated General Contractors of America, the Northern Nevada Human Resources Association and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

Johnny prides himself in being a connector. Understanding that people are the key to success in life, business, and happiness, he strives to make new connections and serve others. A self-proclaimed “network-KING”, his goal at any event is to make newcomers feel welcome and put people in touch with someone in the room who can add value to their life. He lives in Reno with his daughter Sydney and his wife, Molly who is regularly out networking with him.

Michael Skowronek


Despite being born in Minot, North Dakota, Michael Skowronek is a Reno local at heart, having moved with the Skowronek family to Reno in 2004. After completing primary schooling at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School, Michael embarked on a journey of self-discovery. In June 2014, he initiated his staffing career, drawing inspiration and knowledge from his brothers, Johnny and David, who played pivotal roles in his professional development. Michael quickly discovered a natural ability for the industry, leveraging his hands-on experience in warehouse and construction fields to excel in recruitment and business management practices.

Mental health, personal development, and advancement hold significant importance for Michael, reflecting his holistic approach to life. Outside of the professional realm, he finds joy in skiing, camping, and nature, with his dog Roxie being a cherished companion both at home and in the office.

With a broad scope of practical knowledge and strengthened leadership abilities, Michael prioritizes family values, creating a strong foundation for his professional journey. Over the last decade, he has evolved within Square One Solutions, progressing from a Dispatch Specialist to roles such as Staffing Specialist, Workforce Facilitator, and finally, in November 2022, assuming the role of Chief Operating Officer.

In his tenure with Square One Solutions, Michael's journey began as a Field Team Member in 2013, followed by internal integration as a Dispatcher in 2014. Throughout his ten years with the company, he has honed his skills in interviewing, judgment of character, and providing exceptional customer service. Michael's impeccable organization and attention to detail have contributed significantly to Square One Solutions thriving in complex, large-scale event environments. His unwavering commitment to filling every position has established Square One Solutions as a paragon of excellence in temp-to-hire light industrial staffing.

His commitment extends to providing top-notch customer service at Square One Solutions. Outside of work, Luke's daily motivation comes from caring for his two cats.
