“PRS recruited me to a VP position with a division of a FORTUNE 500 manufacturing company in the Midwest reporting to the company President. This was a full blown retained search and initially I was surprised that a small firm was doing such a large project. PRS is very good at what they do. They are professional, honest and very involved as a representative of their client. They obviously get to know the client well before they do anything on the search. As the process unfolded, I realized that PRS had prepared me for every eventuality. There were no surprises. It was up to me to get the job, which I did. As a hiring manager with my new company, we look to PRS as a valuable corporate resource and partner.” Paul Gregoire

“My experience with Jeff Ploeger was the first time I had ever used a professional recruiter…and I will never start a job hunt again without him. At first I was apprehensive; looking for the next step in my career was nerve racking. I had spent countless hours searching and applying for the right job with no tangible results to show for it. All this time wasted searching without help left me feeling drained and dead in the water. Then I met Jeff and my luck began to turn around. Almost immediately phone calls, e-mails and interview opportunities from big name companies jammed up my phone. Nearly every job opportunity was an ideal match; pairing my exact career aspirations with this new potential role. The quality and expediency of my results wasn’t the only thing that impressed me while using Jeff as a recruiter. He treated me as if I were a valued client every single day. In our time together he was professional, communicative and prompt. Not only did Jeff give me the impression he was working hard to get me placed in the career of my choice, he helped me land the interview that actually got me there. It took one month of Jeff’s efforts to help me secure the best job of my career I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.” Blake Cash

After spending thousands on one round of advertising, we discovered that using a local recruiter to fill these vacancies proved much more efficient. Ploeger Recruiting was exceptional in meeting our needs. Susan’s professionalism and attentiveness was exemplary. Her ability to network and negotiate with potential clients was also very impressive. They alleviated the pressure of hiring professional and qualified leadership staff. I look forward to working with them in the future.”
