How We Do Business

We Take on the Risk, Not You

In the past decade, 96% of our placed candidates have still been on the job a year later. But in the rare case that one of our hired candidates doesn’t work out, regardless of the reason, we’ll conduct a new search at no cost to you.

We Guarantee Our Work

We work on a performance-based model and don’t receive our full commission until you’ve hired the perfect candidate. In most cases, we can find the perfect candidate in 90 days, but we don’t stop until we do. And we guarantee our recommended hire will still be with you 12 months later.

Trust is very important to me. David [Schmidt] understands us and what I’m looking for. He takes the time to listen to our needs. He does a good job of screening applicants and probably eliminates a lot of people that aren’t a fit. When I get a resume from David, I know I’ll find a fit.
