I worked with Marius at Groom & Associates for one of our mandates. I found he was professional, in tune with our company’s needs, and accurate with his candidate recommendations. I enjoyed working with Groom and believe we have built a great business relationship for the future. I recommend Groom & associates for their network and understanding of our needs and core business.

Loretta Downing Human Resources, Kerr Financial Consultants Inc.

It was a reassuring experience to work with Groom & Associates when I was under consideration for a position of director at Merck. Because fit has emerged as an important hiring criteria, considerable time was spent in frank conversation about my experience & expectations and how well they suited the current needs of the organization and their preferred candidate profile. The investment in time paid off, reducing uncertainty and laying the groundwork for my seamless integration at Merck. Karen worked tirelessly to ensure a perfect fit, and to see that I’d be happy and successful at Merck, and that they’d be gaining a valuable asset. Win-win! I have had no hesitation in referring both candidates and companies looking for specialized talent to Groom & Associates.

I’ve worked with Groom & Associates in the past and was always impressed with their level and quality of service, so I evidently called on them again when I changed employers. What sets Groom apart from its many competitors is their dedication to meet customers customers’ needs quickly and accuratly accurately through their large network and repository of contacts & resources that provided candidates immediately. Their database of candidates is far reaching and diversified and I was able to fill a position with exceedingly precise requirements; a technical skill set that had taken me weeks of searching and still hadn’t found. Ultimately Groom & Associates sourced the right candidate who was fluently bilingual and qualified for the role with the good references! It is always a pleasure to collaborate with such a team of engaged professionals!

I wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with Groom. Groom was professional, responsive and extremely accommodating. I very much appreciated Groom setting up Skype interviews in your office for me to remotely meet our final candidates. Service was absolutely top notch and very timely communication. In regards to candidates, we certainly found a few that were well qualified and I am very hopeful that our final selection will be a good fit. To be honest, the only challenge was finding someone to fit into the Olympic Committee culture.  Again, it was a pleasure and I would definitely recommend your company to colleagues.

Karine Potier and I have met your consultant and this has absolutely confirmed how much of an excellent consultant she is. During the hiring process for an assistant manager in Toronto, I had already notice all of that. It really was a tremendous pleasure to have worked with her. For the next workforce needs, we will do business with Groom & Associates without any hesitation.

Candidate testimonials

When I first met with Groom about a year ago, there wasn't an immediate match for my skills and desired position. After about a year, Groom & Associates reached-out to me with an incredible opportunity. I was very happy to be contacted, and a little shocked that they stayed true to their word of keeping active on my profile trying to find me a perfect fit.After interviewing, I was offered the job and the process between the offer and starting work was only 2 weeks. I was in constant contact with my recruiter almost every day, where she really guided me and helped meet my requirements from the new employer. I highly recommend that anyone on the fence with trying Groom's services, give it an honest try because they are great!

Sara Morganti Executive Assistant

I am writing to you today to express my gratitude to Groom & Associates, a firm to which I attribute part of my success in landing a contract. Having completed my undergraduate degree from the John Molson School of Business, I began my quest to obtain employment and start my career as a young professional. While searching potential openings, I came across the Groom & Associes website and contacted one of the representatives. She took the time to meet with me and discuss potential opportunities that could be of interest to me. I was then contacted for a two- week mandate. This two-week contract was extended to a six-month placement, which recently ended with a permanent position. I begin this new venture confident that I have the required skills to undertake my new role and sincerely believe that this opportunity corresponds to my professional and personal development. My career path would have perhaps led me in a different directio,n and I am very grateful to Groom & Associes for giving me a helping hand in getting to where I am today. Sincerely,

Niki Medical Meetings Planner

I had the pleasant opportunity to work with Groom & Associates for approximately six months during the temporary contract they found for me. I was amazed at how fast they secured a position for me at such a prestigious company. I was always treated with great respect and kindness. After six months of working with Groom, an opportunity came up for a full time position on my team. I applied for the position and received it. When notifying Groom, they were more than pleased for me. I am very touched by their constant kindness. During holidays and my birthday I always receive a pleasant greeting from them. Now when we require temporary help my first thought goes to Groom. I know I can count on their ability to fill any position even with short notice. I highly recommend Groom for whatever position you may need to fill. Groom is the type of agency that anyone would be happy to work with. Sincerely,

Denise Marketing Assistant

I want to share my positive experience working with Groom & Associés. I was browsing on a website and noticed a Groom & Associés job posting that I was interested in. It was my first time in over six years that I was actively searching for a new job. Since I had never dealt with an agency before, I was a bit skeptical in applying, but decided to give it a try and sent my résumé that evening. The next day I received a call from Groom asking me to come for an interview; that afternoon I met with a consultant and at the end of our meeting and tests she was able to schedule me for an interview with the company the very next day. She explained what it meant to be on contract and that there are no guarantees of becoming a permanent employee but the company is excellent and I would really enjoy my experience there; she covered all important aspects and even gave me driving directions. I went for the interview at 9:00 am and at 3:30pm Groom called me to advise me that I had the job. I was ecstatic! I took the contract position and started the week after. In a matter of one week my life had changed completely. It all happened so fast. Needless to say they were extremely efficient. I was on contract for five months when a position opened up for me. I am now a Customer Service Pricing Coordinator. I could not be more grateful. I truly believe that I would not have gotten this opportunity to be noticed by such a great company if it hadn't been for Groom & Associes. This experience definitely changed my views of agencies. If I ever need an agency service again, I would not hesitate to contact Groom & Associés as they have been exceptional, professional, and efficient. I even recommended them to close friends. Sincerely,


Just a note of thanks for allowing me the opportunity to meet with you yesterday; the tone of your professionalism and relaxed manner certainly made me feel very comfortable during our meeting. As discussed, the opportunity is of significant interest and one where I feel certain that I can make a substantive contribution. I trust that I was able to provide you with a clear picture of the strengths and abilities which I bring to this opportunity and look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Regards,
