It has truly been a pleasure to work with competent, professional and personable folks such as yourselves. This hasn’t been my experience working with other companies over my career. It was great to work with VanderHouwen – we had quite a few communications and their transparency and sincere interest in finding a good role for me really got me to the point of thinking “Why would I work with anyone else?” Maybe you all hear this all the time or maybe you don’t. But you all are significantly a cut above the rest. For once, I can honestly say I look forward working for and with a contracting company. I will most certainly share my very good experience and refer VanderHouwen any chance I get.

I had the pleasure of working with VanderHouwen on a number of technical placements. As an HR Manager, I have worked with many recruiters over the course of my career. VanderHouwen is at the top of my list and the one I called for the hard to fill openings. They have a grasp on the technical aspects of the position, and quickly matches candidates with the opening. They take the time to meet in person with the company and understand the business. This allows them to make a difference in helping the company hire the right person not only from a technical point of view but also a cultural point of view. I highly recommend VanderHouwen.

I was contacted about a new position and was hired by the new company within just a few weeks.  This is a very fast turnaround time in today’s job market.  I was not looking for a new position, as I was still happy in my old job.  However, VanderHouwen brought the perfect position to me.  The new role combined all of my previous industry and product experiences.  The new company ended up being even better than my old company.  They were extremely quick to respond to any questions that I had, and did a great job counseling me through the difficult decision to leave a good job for a better job.  You can tell that the recruiters at VanderHouwen do their research on companies and candidates, and they only match someone to a new job when they are confident that it is a perfect fit.  I have recommended several colleagues to VanderHouwen and I will continue to do so.

We have a very difficult position to fill in our Portland, OR facility. Finding an experienced Fastener Engineer is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Despite our best efforts to find qualified candidates using other sources, two Fastener Engineer positions had been open for over a year, however, after enlisting the help of VanderHouwen, they were able to supply a strong flow of qualified candidates. I am happy to say that within a short period of time, we were able to fill both Fastener Engineer positions through VanderHouwen and we are very happy with the work of our new hires!

Vanderhouwen has been an excellent resource for placing the right candidates within our organization. They understand our needs and are incredibly skilled at finding the right fit. They take the time to understand the company culture and find a candidate that will thrive in that culture. VanderHouwen takes the stress out of recruiting!
