Job Seeker Testimonials
As if considering a job change isn’t daunting enough in and of itself, there’s the pain and anguish of trolling job boards, polishing and distributing your resume, landing and coordinating interviews, ultimately culminating in my least favorite part: negotiating employment details! Most of us have been approached by a recruiter with the promise of “streamlining the process, helping you find a great job fit without the headaches and hassles,” only to find that they’re not there when you need them and constantly there when you don’t! Imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Tom from The Centrics Group and he actually did what he said he was going to do, was personable and professional, responsive and communicative, and genuinely seemed to be working on my behalf! It was hands down the best experience I’ve had working with a recruiting company. I would highly recommend The Centrics Group. Thank you, Tom!
It wasn’t the first time a contracting firm contacted me about working with them. After working 20 years in the IT industry in roles from programmer to project manager, I went into an early retirement. I really wasn’t looking because I was enjoying working on my own and teaching PMP certification classes. At the time I noticed a request from Travis on LinkedIn, I was about to send my second child off to college after being her personal chauffer for the last 2 years of high school. I knew I would have free time and wanted to keep my resume current with IT related work. I responded to Travis on LinkedIn and overnight he replied asking for a resume. Having never worked as a contractor before, I had lots of questions. Travis was always available to respond day or night and truly seemed to care about me. He treated me like I was the only one. Being the first one in the company, it took over 2 months for The Centrics Group to get vetted in order for me to be allowed in as a contractor, but Travis was there all the way reassuring me that we would get through all the requirements and we did. Even after the placement is completed, Tara, Tracie and the rest of the staff make sure that you feel a part of the Centrics family with quarterly lunches and quick responses to any questions. Thanks everyone!
Travis Upchurch of The Centrics Group was very insightful and always available when needed. He was never too busy for a question or advice. I’ve had the best experience with this group and would certainly use them again.
The Centrics Group worked closely with me and we secured a position within a week of the initial interview. My recruiter was professional and engaged every step of the way. I appreciated his quick follow-up to any questions or issues. This was the right time and the right job. I would highly recommend The Centrics Group.
It was unfortunate that I didn’t get to formally interview through The Centrics Group for a contract position; however, I think it is important I communicate the professional level with which The Centrics Group interacted with me. Travis Upchurch was a true professional. He quickly answered my questions before meeting with me. Even when the job opening reached a critical mass of applicants, Travis, still called me on the phone and clearly communicated the situation. Thank you, Travis!
While I have worked with many placement specialists over the years, I found Travis to be one of the few who actually treat you like a person, not a commodity. He is persistent, flexible, and professional during all the phases of landing a position. He also keeps you up to date during the evolution, offering help along the way. I would recommend Travis with no reservation!
Travis is a great communicator who responds quickly to requests. His detailed and knowledgeable guidance during my career change was quite helpful to me.
I was unemployed and posted my resume. Mike didn’t just get my resume and send it on. He got information as needed from me, gave me info as he could, followed up frequently with me or the company to make sure everything was still on track, and in all ways managed the whole process. He was always personable and helpful. I recommend him without reservation.
Working with Tara was a pleasure. She was very responsive to my needs and took the time to perfectly match my skillsets to a great local company in need of my services. I highly recommend her to any company looking for help in finding the right technical candidate or for any technician wanting assistance in finding the right company for a career. She truly is a match maker of technical needs with technical know-how.
