TESTIMONIALS

Ada

“Working with [Shaun] and Sanford Rose has been such a pleasure. One of the most noticeable traits I see in you is that [Shaun] seek to make the right, long term placement for both the company and the candidate. So many firms in the past have been about placing quickly, cashing out and moving on. I have worked with [Shaun] not only for myself as a candidate but also as a recruiting firm for my own management needs and have experience the same quality treatment. I have referred [Shaun] to so many people and candidates for this reason. I appreciate that [Shaun] shows respect for schedules yet act with urgency as needed. [Shaun] builds great relationships and provide so much insight about the company [Shaun] represent as well as the candidates. I will continue to work with [Shaun] in both manager capacity as well as candidate and look forward to referring more and more people to [Shaun].”

Eric

“Joe and his partners at Sanford Rose Associates helped me to fill our vacant Controller position. The process was very professional and we hired an exceptional candidate who fit nicely into our small organization. Joe explained their standard approach and was able to provide several qualified candidates within days of signing our Search Agreement. Joe took the time to understand our organization and the skills we were looking for. He scheduled the interviews, followed up with me and the candidates for feedback to make the best possible match and advised me regarding the employment offer. I would recommend Joe and Sanford Rose Associates to anyone looking to fill a vacant executive position at their company.”

“I cannot begin to say enough great things about Joe and his team. After nearly two months with another recruiting firm and zero action, I needed to find a new solution. On a whim I called Joe from an email blast I has received a few weeks prior. He and I talked about exactly what I was looking for in a candidate to fill a Sr. Construction Accounting Manager role. I believe we spoke on a Thursday morning. He said he would set up at least 3 interviews for me by Tuesday. He also said he would keep in touch every step of the way. He held up his side of the bargain. We ended up having 2 having to decide between two very strong candidates. Joe and the team hit it out of the park. We are very pleased with the effort put forth. Our candidate started nearly 3 weeks ago and has fit right in. Thank you to Joe and his team. We will use them again in the future for other hiring needed.”
