It was a pleasure speaking with you.  What a breath of fresh air to have a recruiter that actually calls back and shows concern.  Unfortunately many recruiters are not like that.

Hi Evelyn,

Things are going well. I really want to thank you for all your help. You have been with me at each step through all of the complexities of recruitment. Your prompt responses and guidance made it easy for me. In case you did not have an answer for me, you spent time to find the answer. You impressed me with your professionalism and expertise in this area. Again thank you so much for making it go so smooth for me.

When I am next tasked with adding onto my team, undoubtedly Evelyn Grey will be my first call.  The difference between a recruiter and a resource/advocate for the team is a care for the minor/very important details both the hiring manager and candidates need to understand.  Throughout my 2-month hiring process I not once ever felt like Evelyn didn’t have a complete understanding of what was being looked for, what needed to be done, or the best course of action to take.  From a candidate perspective she could not have been easier to work with and isn’t a “yes man” or a “no we should do it my way” kind of recruiter, she will work with you in a partnership to pursue what’s best for you.

I could not have been more impressed with her work ethic / style and as you can tell I would highly recommend partnering with Grey Staffing for any hire that you deem important.

I am so excited to announce that I will be starting a new career venture with Medtronic on their Advance Surgical Team!!
This is a position that I fought 4+ months to get with the help of the amazing recruiter, Evelyn Grey! She came to me less than 1 week after I had decided to put my job search on hold! I will be forever grateful for her reaching out to me and continuing to fight with me during my interview process!
I will miss my amazing team and the customers that I have spent years building relationships with but I am ready and excited to move on to bigger & better!!

I am writing to express my gratitude for the exceptional service that Grey Staffing has provided to me in my job search. I recently obtained a Clinical Specialist Lead position through your agency, and I could not be happier with the outcome.

From the very beginning, your team was professional, responsive, and attentive to my needs. Evelyn and Julie took the time to understand my experience and qualifications, and they were able to match me with an opportunity that was a perfect fit for my skills and interests.

Throughout the hiring process, your team was extremely helpful in preparing me for interviews and providing valuable feedback.  They kept me informed every step of the way and ensured that I was well-prepared for each stage of the hiring process.

I was impressed with the level of communication and follow-up provided by your team. They were always available to answer any questions I had, and they were proactive in reaching out to me to provide updates on the status of the position.

Overall, I would highly recommend your Grey Staffing to anyone seeking employment in the healthcare field.  Evelyn and Julie’s  professionalism, expertise, and commitment to your clients are truly outstanding, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great team.

Thank you for helping me find my dream job!

Great Experience with Grey Staffing

I am beyond thrilled with the outcome—landing a fantastic job and a higher salary than I had anticipated. The professionalism and dedication of the Grey Staffing team, especially Evelyn Grey, made a significant difference. Evelyn, your exceptional guidance and support throughout the hiring process, ensuring everything went smoothly, are truly commendable. I am deeply grateful to you and Grey Staffing for helping me achieve more than I could have hoped for in my career!

Evelyn,

Thank you for taking the time last week to search for a few job opportunities for me.  I have to compliment you, because even though I never landed a job through Grey Staffing, you are more responsive than any recruiter I have ever dealt with.

Not only are you more responsive, but whenever you worked with me, you dug in deep with regard to details that would present me in the best light to the employer.  If I was not a fit, you were always direct in terms of whether or not the opportunities will align with my experience.  For those reasons, I prefer to deal with recruiters not affiliated with the “Randstads” and “Robert Half’s” of the world.  Those places act like your best friend coming out the gate, but you often never hear from them again.

The reason why I wanted to pay this compliment is a few years ago I dealt with a smaller recruiter founded by some very good people.  They were as responsive and as diligent as you.  However, in my opinion, they completely lost their vision when they started to grow by leaps and bounds and began winning national awards.

Don’t get me wrong, they deserved to earn those rewards, but after that they dropped their Compass in the woods and lost sight of their values with regard to responding to every candidate to help them in their journey in terms of growing to be a stronger, more marketable candidate.

Most disappointing for me, is I had given them public praise on many occasions and had a good rapport with their staff members.  Then one day, I spoke to one of the members I had a rapport with (who was not my assigned recruiter), who was advertising for high level sales positions.  They were courteous to me and started to dig into the roles like you did.  That was until they asked me who represented me at their office.  After I confirmed who the recruiter was, I never heard back from either of them.  So, out of curiosity, I contacted the original recruiter I worked with.  This recruiter never responded to me for 9 months after I asked her why I wasn’t chosen for the role.  Whereas, their policy was to always reply to all candidates right away, in keeping with their policy of assisting all job seekers on their journey.  From that experience, it was obvious my recruiter told the other person not to deal with me.  The sad part is, the reason I was not selected 9 months earlier, was a minor issue that would have been valuable for me to know right away, in order that I could restructure my approach.  However, it was obvious by their actions that they were all about earning more awards and tossing candidates to the curb who hinder their ability to earn more rewards.  It hurt me on a personal level, because I knew the CEO from day one and I was always vocal about praising them.  One would think that from that alone, they would have guided me with the little things that could help me build a better profile.

Having said that, I will never publicly bad mouth anyone, nor will I expose who they are.  I told you that story to add to the praise I have or your company vs. my experiences elsewhere.  You are a proof in your industry that “you don’t have to be big, to be great“.  And Grey Staffing is Great.  No matter how many awards that other recruiting company receives, I will always have more respect for how Grey Staffing operates.

Sincerely,

Chris Cialone

It’s been a great experience to work with Julie Grey of Grey Staffing who has been very professional, helpful and effective in introducing me to good positions such as Core Lab Director at Accu Reference Laboratories.

Julie was always updating and checking with me in all the processes up to the success of getting me at this position.

She was always available at inquiries as well as answering questions pertinent to the process.

I have recommended Julie to my colleagues who have been greatly pleased with her effort and professionalism as well.

Julie is a very detailed and patient person who really cares about the necessities of her clients.

I really appreciate Julie’s help because you can feel comfortable knowing that she put the job necessities of her clients at first; given the importance, the client deserves and even going the extra mile to find a suitable position.

I would highly recommend Julie and Grey Staffing to people working in different fields but especially in the scientist field.

It was a pleasure working with Grey Staffing. I have worked with many other staffing firms in the past and they had left me with a negative view of staffing companies. It seems most other firms just want to get you into a position even if it’s not ideal for you, or keep hounding you with phone calls. Julie was wonderful! She was personable and easy to get in touch with. She always kept me up to date on the progress with my potential future employer and made sure that I had what I needed. She never made me feel pressured to interview for a position I felt wasn’t a fit for me, and understood that I have a busy schedule myself, so I never ended up with an overflowing voicemail of the check-in calls. I really appreciate her approach to staffing. I would HIGHLY recommend Grey Staffing if you’re looking to partner with someone who will treat you like a person and not just another seat to fill at a job

“What a pleasure it was to work through a rather lengthy interview process with Julie Grey of Grey Staffing. From the very beginning, she made the process seamless. I cannot thank her enough for the prompt communication and attentiveness from beginning to end! In a time where emails and direct messages are left untouched, Julie’s responsiveness speaks volumes to her commitment in helping you find the perfect place to land in your career search! Although, the company chose the other candidate, it was obvious Julie was “Team Erica” the entire time! I visit frequently and am just waiting for the next opportunity to pop up! So much so I asked how I could keep her on “retainer”!! I will always want Julie on my team and will remember this experience always!

Hi Evelyn, its been a while; I hope you are doing well. About this time last year, your valuable services helped me sign on with Turtle Beach during my search for a new opportunity in San Diego. It was a very positive experience for me and that is why you are the only person I thought of, when my good friend Taher mentioned that he is looking for Engineering opportunities in San Diego. I would like to introduce you to Taher, with whom I have worked with at Qualcomm and LRT, my previous job.  I am using this email to introduce and connect both of you. Thank you and have a great day!
