Business Systems Analyst
Six months ago, I found myself unemployed. Needless to say, I felt helpless, panicked, and, for the first time since I can remember, worthless. On a referral from a friend, I met with Jared from the Gateway Group, who immediately put me at ease. He was compassionate and understanding to my plight. He assured me that they would do everything they could to help me as quickly as possible, and I can honestly say that he and his brother Garen, made good on that statement. The following week, I had an interview with my current employer, and started to work shortly thereafter. I always assumed that “dreading work” was a part of the adult world, but I now know that it was just the places that I was working at. Garen and Jered not only found a place that I welcomed with open arms, but they provided me with the tools to be successful in my current position. I do not have the words to thank them enough for everything that they have done. I can say that my life has been better because of them, and I will never forget their kindness. They possess my highest appreciation and upmost respect. I can only hope that I can return the favor in the future.
Director, Product Strategy
I have had the opportunity to work with Cameron from both sides of the recruitment picture. He originally recruited me into my current position, and I have leveraged him for my professional recruitment needs ever since! Having Cameron advocate on my behalf made the experience of being a potential new-hire significantly easier. He provided support, guidance and tips through the interviewing process and worked all hours of the day to ensure my questions were answered and I had all the information I needed to make a decision. He also served as a third party throughout the negotiation process- I was able to bounce ideas off of him and I knew he would fight on my behalf to get me the optimal package.
Utilizing him to recruit candidates for my open positions has been equally as valuable. He is very thoughtful in the candidates he presents, ensuring that they would be the best match for not only the position, but also the culture.
There has not been a single candidate that he has brought to my attention of which I have not been satisfied with – the tough part is picking just one!
Cameron has been able to produce several quality candidates for our organization in the past year. Not only does he have a great network from which to provide candidates, but he also takes a great deal of time to listen to what our specific needs are from an experience and competency level as well as from an interpersonal and an intangible level. When we get a candidate from Cameron, we know we are getting quality that has been vetted based what we have communicated that we are specifically searching for. I certainly would recommend Cameron Magee as a high level recruiter.
Ron: I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the job you and Gateway did while finding a strong Controller for our company. Without question the process and end result was successful and I enjoyed working with you during the search. I believe there is a fine line between not receiving enough communication or attention vs. receiving too much. We have worked with organizations that don't provide necessary support and follow up to some that take an inordinate amount of our time during the search process. You and Gateway have found the perfect balance and were very attentive to our needs while not requiring too much of our time from the beginning of the search through the follow up during the transition period. Thanks again and we look forward to working with Gateway on future employment searches.
Director of Finance
This was our first time using Gateway Group to hire staff. Gateway very quicklyunderstood what type of accounting services I needed and sent several resumes for my review. They lined up the interviews, followed up to make sure the process was moving along, and I hired one of their candidates. I appreciated the full service I received and how easy the process was.
