Testimonials

"If you’re responsible for hiring anyone, then you know there are more than enough recruiters out there who would love to help you fill any position.  The challenge is finding a team that combines efficiency and effectiveness to quickly find the needle in a haystack that results in a long-term fit for both the company and the candidate.  In today’s world, anyone can generate dozens of potential candidates with just a few keywords and a LinkedIn® account.  The difference comes down to understanding people, and that is what Randy and Susan do better than any other team I have worked with in my career.  A few minutes on the phone with Randy quickly reveals his desire to uncover not just the requirements of the position but also the intricacies of our company culture.  He and Susan have developed a unique approach to identify potential candidates and quickly move beyond the resumés to understand the people behind them - their personalities, their motivations, their aspirations.  It is their ability to make it personal that differentiates them from their counterparts, and in our case, allowed them to delivery a successful fit with the first candidate they presented.  For them it is not just recruiting to fill a position, it is a thoughtful match-making process that focuses on creating a lasting relationship.

President & COO - Medical Device OEM

"I contacted MR Gastonia about an opportunity thinking it would be like any other contact to a recruiter where they collect your résumé and you never hear from them again.  Not this time. 

Susan called me and we had a very detailed conversation about the role.  She drilled into my strengths and weaknesses and then explained the company’s needs and even wanted to know what my expectations would be… I then had an equally detailed conversation with Randy and once we agreed to proceed, he spent time with me in a mock interview.  He shared great tips [and] gave me insights into an interviewer’s thinking.

After the onsite interview Randy was extremely honest with me building a great measure of trust which I think is most important; giving me confidence that he was acting not only in his client’s best interest but mine as well.  I wound up in a great job doing exactly what I wanted to do.  They are both professionals, extremely ethical, know how to find the fit between candidate and employer and they have my highest recommendation."

"Shortly after the initial contact by Susan at MR Gastonia, I was preparing for an interview.  A thorough questionnaire and general interest conversation ensured the job was a perfect fit.  Randy is diligent about the candidates' career; going above simple job placement.  Having worked in the Medical field himself over 20 years gives him an in depth knowledge of what employers and employees expect.  In addition, he does everything to prepare you for a successful interview, including resume critiques, mock interview questions and detailed background information on both interviewers and company.  In fact after this prep work, I was given multiple offers and chose the opportunity he proposed.  Susan & Randy have my highest recommendation; their work ethic and professionalism have helped me obtain a great career."
