My recruiter is a true asset. I’ve worked in Sales and Customer Service for over 12 years and it is rare that anybody cares truly about what your needs are. I was super impressed with my recruiter’s sincerity in helping me, and his professionalism throughout the interview process.

My recruiter gives me a tremendous amount of support. I am always excited to meet the candidates he sends because they are all professional and have strong sales backgrounds.
— Residential Sales Manager, Security Firm
From the first call, my recruiter did a most excellent job of interviewing me and finding out what kind of Sales Representatives I was seeking. She took that information and was able to deliver a very strong candidate pool for me to interview. From that pool, I was able to hire three of the candidates for my team.

In the past, recruiting all fell on the sales manager’s shoulders. It used up so much of our time at the expense of running our business. ACA Talent has made it possible for me to focus on my job with little concern over manpower. It’s like pushing the “easy” button with them.

My recruiter at ACA Talent intuitively knows what kinds of candidates I want to see, so I don’t have to see four candidates to get to the one that I want.
