  • Recruiters Source the BEST Candidates for Your Company 

    I must tell you that we posted this EA job opportunity on Indeed and another site, and had a lot of applicants.  After going through the timely process of elimination, we ended up with about 5 candidates to personally interview.  The candidates that Marty has brought us were both much, much better than what we did on our own.  I also asked both candidates how they felt about Marty as a recruiter, since we are recommending your company to all our franchisees, and they both had rave reviews about his follow up, sincerity and kindness.  Just thought you would like to know that.

    Frank reached out to me via Linked In messaging and right off the bat he was speaking my language.  His message was exactly what I needed to hear to consider the position he was looking to fill.  He kept me informed as the process progressed and he maintained discretion which was greatly appreciated.  I was very impressed with how everything went and felt it was a very professional process.  He even coached me prior to the interview process and let me know key points of my qualifications that would be most relevant to the position I was seeking.  Thank you for everything Frank!

    Helena was wonderful throughout the whole process. I started my job search far sooner than necessary (3 months before moving back to Boston) and she walked me through the necessary steps to prepare for the submission of my resume. She was very responsive and helpful with answering my questions and setting up communication between myself and Cafe Nero and making sure that we stayed to an appropriate timeline. She made the whole interview process a breeze and helped build my confidence in preparation as well. It was really nice to work with someone that not only cared about placing you with a company but also cared about your transition into that company and overall satisfaction with the process and job.   Thanks, Heather Pew Hospitality Recruiters Help You Find a Job For FREE!
