Excellent Industry Reputation

I love working for VanderHouwen because they are a family-owned business and truly care about ALL of their employees, and clients alike.  They have an excellent reputation in the industry as well as top notch training for all employees.  VanderHouwen takes time to motivate, train, and recognize all of their employee’s hard work.  It is a great place to start a long term career, and truly enjoy what you do.

Fun And Family Friendly Work Environment

I enjoy working at VanderHouwen because it’s a fun and family-oriented work environment.  I’m pretty serious and focused at work.  But, I love the combination of goofballs and sports geeks in the office. Opportunity exists here.  I’m driven, goal-oriented, VanderHouwen is a place where I can try, fail and learn, then apply creativity to the process as I create the reality I want.

A Company That Truly Cares

I enjoy working at VanderHouwen because they treat their employees like family. Not once have I felt like they don’t have the best interest for my career and well-being. I also enjoy the work-hard/play-hard culture; the company rewards you for how hard you work and we all have a great time.

Work Hard, Play Hard

Work hard, play hard. I love the people that are here. I’ve worked at previous staffing agencies where you’re worked like a dog with little or no reward. VanderHouwen allows me to be directly responsible for my workload and I’m rewarded accordingly. We celebrate positive experiences and strive to do the best for our candidates and clients.

Relationship Based Recruiting

I love working at VanderHouwen because it’s wonderful to work for an organization with a great reputation who is relationship based. As a company we care about the quality of customer service we bring to our clients and candidates. Internally, we are a family. We help each other both professionally and personally when needed. I love that we aren’t just co-workers. We can go as a group to Vegas or go bowling or the nearest pub in town and have a great time.
