What Our Clients Are Saying

Eagle One Transportation

The responses we received to the Talent Locator product was great. We received 45 responses and have hired 5 already. We are still working with 3 to 4 candidates so we are sure that we will get to 8 hires. RCI did in a week what takes us a month to do. We will definitely be using them again in our San Antonio market.

Red Lobster

We recently utilized RCI to help us with some supplemental sourcing for Restaurant Managers in some of our more difficult markets. To date, we have been able to make 3 confirmed hires and have more candidates in the pipeline that we hope we’ll be able to convert quickly. In addition, RCI was able to generate a list of qualified candidates that our recruiters will be able to work over the next few months. RCI’s customer service and support were on point and we will certainly consider their services again.

Winpak Division/American Biaxix Inc.

The project went very well and the process was easy. I received 28 qualified resumes for my Print Manager in Winnipeg, CN. I currently have 9 in process. I was quite impressed by the quality of candidates RCI captured in Canada. I am recommending their services to our sister company in the United States.

We receive unlimited postings on Bestjobsusa.com through our participation in Select 50 and Hire America’s Bravest programs that we purchased from RCI. Through the postings we get 20 – 30 applicants and make 2 – 3 hires per month. It is a successful tool that helps our recruiting efforts.

Bull Moose Tube Company

We interviewed 4 candidates for our President, Fabricated Metals Division and our leading candidate were sourced by RCI. He is visiting the sites next week and we will probably make him an offer. This was a great investment and RCI saved us 30K in placement fees. We will definitely use them again.

We hired someone through RCI’s efforts. It was less effortless for me and much more cost effective than running print ads.

Pattons, Inc.

The project with RCI was very successful. We have made one hire and have several candidates in process. Their Universal Screener product is a great way to target passive candidates and is way better than CareerBuilder.

Teresa Hanson did an excellent job recruiting for us; we had a change in direction and she didn't miss a beat. Very thorough, responsive, was able to keep the candidate informed and engaged to what our procedures and processes were. I enjoyed working with you Teresa; your persistence, patience, and attitude were very refreshing. I would have no problem recommending you for any higher level of recruitment that any company would need.

Thank you for everything!
