"We have utilized CSS for many, many years. We don't use recruiting firms often, but when we do, CSS is at the top of the list of those I contact. The steps taken by the account executives are above and beyond those of many firms. When learning of an opportunity, CSS works directly with Human Resources and also conducts a brief interview of the hiring manager to ensure they have all of the information they require to be successful in responding to our needs, while at the same time respecting our internal processes and the value of our time. CSS works diligently to evaluate their current resources and potentially locate new candidates to ensure those whom they present to us are qualified. They thoroughly screen not only for the technical fit, but also for cultural fit... and that additional consideration is extremely important to us. Beyond this well-respected (and appreciated!) process, they add a personal touch by being there to introduce the candidate to either myself or the manager with whom their candidate is meeting. It is a company of integrity which not only respects the needs of its clients, but also those of the individuals it is placing, and CSS remains committed to the hiring process from start to finish. Many of the individuals CSS has placed with us over the years are still with the company and have proven to be strong contributors. I would recommend CSS to any organization looking for a firm truly committed to successfully supporting their needs."
