Tim Dunskis, Director, Strategic Partnerships at Packsize

“I had the pleasure to work with Katelynn and the team at DR on an opportunity that lead to the next phase in my career. Katelynn and the team took the time to review my experiences in detail and explain the value they believed I could bring to the hiring organization…and they to me. During the several month process, Katelynn and the team were very responsive and quick to admit when additional information was needed to answer a question. Thank you for the help Katelynn!”

Kevin Garben, Business Development Manager at Conductix-Wampfler

“Katelynn was great to work with! Her communication and responsiveness were excellent. She does a fantastic job of making sure the position was a good fit for me and I was a good fit for the position. Katelynn took the time to guide me through the process to make sure I was informed, prepared, and comfortable.”

Alex Ballinger, Candidate

Katelynn was an absolute delight to work with and was a superb teammate in helping me acquire the job of my dreams. She was very honest when it came to expectations and always took the time to help me prepare for interviews with informative follow-ups. She sincerely cared about my progress and took the time to really understand what I wanted.

I will continue to recommend Katelynn to friends, family, and colleagues and wish her the best as she continues to succeed in the recruitment business. I had an extremely positive experience with her and her team and can’t say enough about her dedication and persistence.

Mark Zaner, Candidate

Katelynn understands her clients’ needs and requirements. You can tell she really takes the time to find out what the profile is of the candidate they’re looking to fill a position. This came through when she initially reached out to me, described the position, and it matched perfectly to my background and abilities. Her professionalism and knowledge continued through the entire process as she guided me on what areas of concern might be and personalities of the interviewers so I could prepare. Her guidance helped immensely along with following up consistently and timely on both sides of the process making sure to keep the momentum going. I definitely was successful because of the work she put into the process and time spent with me.

Ralph McQuaid, Candidate

In the past I was reluctant to work with recruiters on career opportunities, honestly because I felt like I was strictly a commodity to most. But not Katelynn. Katelynn took the time to make sure the opportunity was a good fit for all involved. She got me detailed answers to my questions and in a timely manner. I’d get update calls even when there was not much to report; which if you’ve been there you know phone silence is a killer when you’re waiting for good news. I have the utmost of confidence in Katelynn’s abilities and commitment to her clients, on both sides. I have no problem referring her to friends and colleagues because I know she will do her best to place them in a position that is a good fit, not just what’s available to make a commission.

Thank you Katelynn for taking the time to listen to what I was actually looking for and coaching me through the process. I truly appreciate your efforts!

Machelle Johnson, HR Director – Pearson Packaging Systems

“I started working with DRI about 7 years ago and it was honestly because Jason Herbert was different from other recruiters. Instead of sending a bunch of resumes that never fit the bill, Jason prequalified and screened candidates to present the right fit. Two of the reasons we continue to work with Direct Recruiters are that they find the talent to meet the position requirements and always provides a follow-up to make sure the person is a good hire. They have made my job as a Director of Human Resources much easier because I have basically outsourced high level sales and engineer roles to them which allows me to focus on the positions that are easy for me to fill quickly. More importantly, we have worked with DRI to hire strategic leaders in our organization that have really helped us grow significantly as a company over the last 5 years. I would recommend Direct Recruiters to others with high-level searches; I have worked with Cherie Shepard and Rachel Makoski in addition to Jason Herbert, and they all provide the same great, consistent service. It is clear that DRI’s core values are instilled in several recruiters because the approach is always the same, which is good.”

Ann Britten, HR Manager – Optima Machinery Corporation

“Jason was great to work with, he listened to what requirement we had for the position and looked hard for the right candidates. He was flexible and good at communicating what was next in the process. I would recommend Jason to others as he was very easy to work with.”

Martin Hack, VP and General Manager – L.B. Bohle, LLC

“Jason was always very responsive, followed-up on a regular basis and we had an overall good relationship. I valued the honest, open communication Jason provided throughout the process. He gave us good candidates throughout, offered good advice in the process from what he saw, and listened to my responses to really tailor who he was looking for to present to us. Overall it was a great experience and I would absolutely recommend using Jason Herbert as your recruiter.”

Rodney Grounds, Vice President of Sales, Automatic Systems Groups – Robopac

“Jason at Direct Recruiters exceeded my expectations with his understanding of the Packaging industry, and with his process of listening to what we were looking for in a candidate then finding the right talent for us. Working with Jason, we found a very good candidate who took the position and shows signs of promise to be a great hire. Jason’s professionalism and organization were key in the whole process. Jason really excels at listening to us on the front end to know exactly what we look for in a candidate. I certainly would recommend Jason at Direct Recruiters as it was a great experience for us.”

Cary Landegger, Manager of International Sales – Bosch Packaging Technology

“Cherie did a great job of working with her team to present and manage a job opportunity for me. She skillfully balanced my interest and her clients’ to a mutually successful outcome. Cherie is reliable, extremely professional, responsive and manages the process well. I am very happy with her work and give Cherie and Direct Recruiters a thumbs up recommendation.”
