I was fortunate to have such a wonderful staffing service on my side during my search for the perfect job. I would highly recommend Grey Staffing. Evelyn Grey was professional, attentive and caring. She worked with me to help me find a job that matched my skills, and the type of company that I wanted to work for. Thanks again for all your help!

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!!

Julie Grey Staffing was there when I needed good, solid communication with a new employer. Both through first contact all the way down to contract negotiations, I never felt alone or confused on the next steps.

Julie was extremely responsive during the entire hiring process. From the very beginning where she was providing incredibly useful information about the position being offered to keeping me in the loop during the various stages of the hiring process. Without her feedback, I would have not felt nearly as at ease as I was. I would easily recommend her to anyone who is seriously searching for careers in the medical device industry!

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
