Russ, I received your applause in the mail and loved it! It truly made me smile and I keep it close by as a reminder of NOT "my" applause, but how I "applaud" YOU!!! I cannot begin to thank you enough for the diligent work and extreme efforts you went through to help me land this fantastic opportunity. When I couldn't see the highlights and most importantly weigh the pros and cons, you were the voice of reason that I trusted and leaned on to help guide and bring so many things into perspective. I am so incredibly grateful to have worked with you! You are truly the best!
Thank you so much for the nice card of congratulations! I'm still in amazement at how fast I was placed and am very grateful for Caroline referring The Larko Group and for Heidi and Dan's responsiveness to my first couple temp positions leading up to my current temp-to-hire. Even though I am new to Chicago and don't know many people yet, if I come across others in my situation looking to get their feet in the door I will confidently refer them to TLG! Thank you again for you and your team's efforts. Though shorter than expected, it's been a pleasure working with The Larko Group.
I recommend The Larko Group! A while back I decided to make the switch from retail management to a traditional office setting. I had been interviewing with placement and temp agencies and had no success in finding any opportunities. I was told that, on paper, I didn't have the proper skill set. Even though I had 13 years of management experience, I couldn't get even so much as a "no thank you" email from the numerous resumes that I'd sent out. A friend had been in a similar situation and recommended that I call Russ at The Larko Group. She said, "Russ is a good guy and doesn't just want to fill a seat. He'll help you find a good fit." She couldn't have been more right. Russ (and team) took the time to get to know me. They actually listened to my wish list and found a wonderful place for me to temp. It was such a good fit that they offered me a full time position. I would end up staying there until the company decided it was time to close the doors. I needed to stay employed and decided to reach out to TLG. Once again, they took the time to talk to me and found another great opportunity as a temp. True to my friendís words, for the second time, Russ found a good fit. Soon after starting I was offered a permanent position. Russ and his team are wonderful to work with and I recommend them to all my friends.
Amber CaulkI first met with The Larko Group in April 2010. I was new to Chicago and had a hard time finding employment. Within a week of my first meeting with their amazing team, they had me going on interviews, and within a few weeks I began a temporary placement. I was told that this was a position that I could be in for 1 -3 weeks. Four months later, they hired me full time and one year later Iíve found myself growing within a wonderful company. Iím so grateful that I found Larko when I did. They are true professionals placing for amazing companies.
My overall experience with The Larko Group was extremely positive and very successful! It felt like Kari Schmiedlin cared about me getting back to work. Kari was very nice and helpful. The pre-interview meetings I had with her really put me at ease. She also had great follow-up after my interviews too. The Larko Group was one of four staffing agencies I used, but the only one that seemed to really care about placing me!
