Client Testimonials

I have had the pleasure of working with VanderHouwen for nearly a year now. I was in need of someone to partner with to help me fill a number of open positions and was not getting any support. From day one VanderHouwen has listened to the things I was looking for to build out an amazing team. VanderHouwen has earned my trust not only as a partner in business, but as a friend. They genuinely want to make sure I’m happy and have what I need.

Every recruitment VanderHouwen has performed for us has been successful.  There are two ways their services have impressed me.  First, their recruiters quickly find highly qualified candidates that align well with our position requirements.  Second, the candidates that we’ve hired through VanderHouwen have always fit well with our company’s culture.  In my experience, VanderHouwen recruiters come up to speed quickly and have always delivered highly credible candidates both in terms of skills and abilities as well as character.  As an employer, I also appreciate that they are able to do all of this without sending me tons of resumes.  They respect our time and they deliver results.

HR Director

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!
