Deciding whether or not to change jobs is undoubtedly one of the larger life decisions an individual can make. Having an individual there to guide and coach you through the process can be invaluable. I am genuinely grateful to have had Karen from Kinsa Group initialize, organize and ultimately help to finalize my transition to my next career opportunity. Her thoughtful and transparent approach allowed me to better navigate this naturally stressful time. 

Thanks again,
Matt Vandehey

Procurement Manager, MI

Thank you again for everything!  Pete has been a great addition to our team!  As for how  Kinsa Group did, GREAT!!!  I had put a lot of trust into Kinsa Group with a quick, quick turnaround task with little more than having used Kinsa Group for a brief search last year.  The quick response I received with that made me reach out to you for our new Bakery Controller.  I was not disappointed in any aspect of the search from your great partnership and communication, to the quality and quantity of candidates.  Kinsa Group gets top ratings from me! You’ve been a pleasure to work with.

Director, Human Resources – IL

Dave Rothe is a consummate professional.

His easy, gentle manner, thoughtful skills and excellent vetting of candidates made our search easy. There were a few candidates that could have worked with the team. That said, the Vice President of Operations hired is the right choice for where our company is now and we are thrilled!

Director – Cannabis Confections – CA

I’ve worked with other recruiters before and none of them made me feel like I had a real chance at getting a better job.  Karen was able to articulate exactly what the employer was looking for and I believe that insight enabled me to get the job.  I was a little nervous going into the telephone and in-person interviews but Karen helped me prepare and my confidence improved throughout the process.  Karen connected me with a great job with a great salary!

Thanks Karen and Kinsa Group!

I want to compliment Karen Engelmann for excellent customer service. She was knowledgeable, patient and helpful to me. Well done Kinsa Group!

Director of Human Resources – Meat – PA

Kinsa Group helped our company fill a large void — the Director of Plant Operations position. This was a hard role for us to find due to the fact in essence it is replacing my uncle’s experience and knowledge of the past 50 years! Kinsa Group did a great job in seeking out someone who was not even actively looking for a job and we are very excited to add this gentleman to our family! You did an excellent job and I give you 5 out of 5 stars. Thank you very much!

CEO – Specialty Ice Cream Manufacturer

We do not often use executive recruiters but over the past two years, working with Kinsa Group has made the process efficient and faster than if we had not engaged your services.

The recruiting experience working with Kinsa was exceptional. You provided a good recap of the applicant’s background and motivations for the opportunity, which saved us time when we conducted our phone screens and onsite interviews. You have a good sense of when to check in on our progress by not being pushy or ‘salesy’ in order to close the deal. You are pros in what you do. We were able to make a successful hire within a few weeks, which is fast considering it was a high-level key executive position. In the end we have a person on board who is excited to be here, has already begun to implement processes which we were lacking and is working with me to add a support person to his team.

Thank you!
