J.H., Candidate

Five Star Recommendation

In the spring of 2017, Ashley contacted me on behalf of American Roller & Plasma Coatings regarding an open Account Manager position for the Ohio/W. PA/ N. WV territory. I’m not one to generally listen to anyone who calls me unsolicited but I’m glad that I chose to hear what Ashley had to say. At the time, I wasn’t looking for a new position at a new company; but, she reviewed the details of the position with me [despite my initial reluctance to listen] to help me make a well educated decision about applying for the position. After careful thought, I decided that the benefits outweighed the potential risks and I ended up applying for the position at American Roller through Direct Recruiters. Ashley helped me to revise my resume/cover letter and coached me on my phone interview skills. She provided excellent advice throughout the interviews and hiring process without over-selling my skills to American Roller or over-selling the position to me. Ashley even invited me stop by their office in Solon, OH to get some direct coaching from one of their other associates who is more familiar with my specific industry (which I took her up on). Ashley directly facilitated my employment at American Roller and my family and I are extremely grateful for everything she has done for us. She even calls me occasionally to see if I’m still happy with my decision to take the position.

For employers: I work in a small/’niche’ industry (Industrial Rollers / Web Processing) that requires specific knowledge to even be considered for a position and Ashley was extremely good at discovering and contacting the “right people” who had the right skill set. Most of my colleagues (and some competitors I know) had been contacted about my current position by Ashley. She did an excellent job at clearly describing the expectations, benefits, and responsibilities of the position I was hired for and asked all the right (and sometimes difficult) questions. I’d like to think that American Roller is also grateful for Ashley’s diligence in truly seeking the best qualified candidates for the position (and not just throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks); but, that’s a question for my manager…

In short: if Ashley contacts you, I definitely recommend hearing what she has to say. She’s one of the great ones in my book.
