Retirement Planning Opinions Needed

I’m 25 and have no retirement savings. I am working diligently on paying off my debt and should have everything interest bearing taken care of by September. I’ve started a job with a new company and they don’t currently offer a 401(k) plan, but are anticipating starting one in 6 months. I’d really like to start working on retirement savings and I’m wondering if I should start a private 401(k), or a Roth IRA, or wait for my company to start their program, or some kind of combination. I would love to know what you recommend and if you also have any companies that you recommend I pursue these accounts with.

I'm hoping that I can get this taken care of by the end of February. 

In other news, the new job is keeping me very busy, but it's going pretty well so far!

Maybe you could start a Roth immediately ...
Then pursue the company 401k when it becomes available.
