Committed to Our Clients 

Our 5 Star Process

As seasoned recruiters, we understand that every company, and each position within the organization, is different. 5 Star is not in the business of just passing on resumes; we value your time and are committed to only sending our clients screened, qualified candidates.

How do we accomplish this with every placement? We believe our continued success comes from first developing strong relationships with our clients; we get to know your company - it's mission, culture, aspirations, and work environment. These relationships allow us to find the best candidates - not just for anyone - but specifically for you.

Being able to build lasting relationships and finding the brightest stars in the industry doesn't happen overnight; that is why all 5 Star Recruiters are experienced and knowledgeable in the automotive and heavy manufacturing industries.

Want to hear more about 5 Star's commitment to our clients? You can find feedback from 5 Star's clients and candidates on the testimonials page.

We follow a proven and strategic methodology and process throughout the entire search. Through in-depth interviews, leadership assessments, culture questionnaires, professional references, and our keen market insights, we are able to make strong recommendations for your most important positions.

We seek to understand each client’s strategic goals, the specific leadership roles and competencies needed to meet those goals, and the culture that new employees need to align with. We are creative and resourceful as we search for candidates.  During the interview part of the recruitment process, we gather feedback and treat candidates with the utmost respect, so that their impression of the process is also stellar- regardless of whether they are ultimately chosen or not. 

Finally, we present a strong shortlist of qualified candidates. We are your guide and trusted advisor throughout the recruitment process.
