What companies are saying about Poindexter Recruiting

This a from a few of our clients:

We were referred to Bill by another business owner in the Kansas City area. From the beginning, I found Bill to be attentive, professional and willing to meet the demands I place on a recruiter. He did an outstanding job of keeping both us, as the employer, and the candidates informed on the status of the recruitment process. He took my calls during the day and the evening hours. The quality of candidates he sourced and sent our way was outstanding. He clearly understood what we were looking for and our unique culture. I would and will recommend Bill to other HR professionals.
Lisa Kist, SPHR
Director, Human Resources

" Bill not only has the connections to find the right type of talent for my needs, he always provides several candidates with a range of talents within the needs that I have stated. He has never wasted my time. As a small company, my staff wears many hats, and finding talent with multi-functioning skill sets is challenging. Bill has always exceeded my expectations." April Allenbrand, Marketing Manager, PBI Gordon

"I have worked with many "headhunters" during my career -- but I've never worked with anyone that I felt deserved their fee any more than Bill Poindexter.  He listens.  He asks the right questions.  He doesn't waste my time with candidates that won't work for me.  He is responsive, professional, considerate -- and a man that I will work with time and time again.  If you care about the above, you should work with him too."
Teri Rogers, President and CEO

I’ve worked with other recruiters on the hiring side, but Bill will be my first call to recruit candidates in the future." RL

"Bill reached out to me with an Account Management position that was a perfect fit for my skill set and a great opportunity to grow in my career.

I would highly recommend his services to anyone!" Tara S.
