I worked for such a company for 4 1/2 years and had several people who
agreed to be "personal references" rather than "professional
references". In addition, two of my managers had moved on to other
companies and were able to provide me with a reference. Other than
that, I would suggest volunteer and off-the-job references that could
attest to professional characteristics such as making deadlines, etc.
