Alma Medrano Manager

I was what you call a "soft seeker" meaning I was happily employed but longing for a new challenge and passively looking for something new. I received a call from Groom & Associates one day and my recruiter told me he was given my CV by his colleague at Groom and had an interesting opportunity for me. After many disappointments with other agencies & on my own, I was skeptical but open to the idea. My recruiter did a great job explaining the company, the position and why I would be a good fit so I agreed to meet with his client. After a great interview, I left feeling excited and optimistic about the position. Luckily within 24 hours I received an offer and with my recruiter’s help, negotiated a few minor details and accepted the offer.Leaving a comfortable job was a big gamble but Groom & Associates’ interview preparation and guidance through the whole process made it smooth and rewarding. I'm loving the new job and will always be grateful to Groom & Associates for helping me get to the next level of my career.  

Andrew Mahoney Senior Buyer/ Planner

My experience at Groom & Associates was nothing less than positive in every way. Anyone who has ever been on the job market and unsure of their marketability certainly understands what it feel likes to meet yet another recruiter! What will this new recruiter do that the 10 others I met couldn't....let me tell you! At Groom & Associates they care, they really do and they really show it! From the moment I met my recruiter, I was put at ease and felt relaxed! She got it...she felt my nervousness but somehow I knew that this was going to be good! We had a great discussion: What was my past work history, what were my new career aspirations and what we're the possibilities on the job market today. I was able to do required testing in the comfort of my home. My recruiter kept in contact with me on a daily basis about what positions were in the pipeline and even just to see how I was and encourage me. I never felt alone, like I was doing this by myself. Someone else was equally invested in my search for work and life stability. All this being said, together we were successful in landing a fabulous position with a very reputable firm. What I appreciated the most was the details about the new company and position were honestly outlined. No surprises! As well, there was constant follow up by my recruiter. She took the time to call me and find out how it was going on several occasions. I thought that was amazing! Groom & Associates is not just any recruiter. They become a lifelong friend. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them. In fact, I always do! They are highly professional, dedicated and really will have your best interest at heart!

My experience of working with Groom & Associates was exceptional. I was looking for a job on my own for a few months, but once I approached Groom & Associates, I was hired by a company within a few weeks. They were able to match my profile with a company and position that was well suited to my experience and career goals.From my initial contact, my recruiter consistently supported me in every step. She is excellent at reading your skills and personality attributes and finding the perfect fit. She is genuinely kind, friendly, supportive and professional. My recruiter went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. She did all the follow ups during and after the recruitment process and we stayed in touch even though it's been almost a year since she found me a job. I would and I have already recommended Groom & Associates to my friends who were looking for a job or new challenge. From my personal experience it was a pleasure to work with Groom & Associates. She proved me that I was not only the new “connection” on her LinkedIn contact list and I wish all recruiters have the same attitude and professional but also human approach to any job seekers out there.
