Meet the Team:  Janet Rivera Jones

After amassing years of recruiting experience I founded 5 Star Recruitment, which has become one of the leading recruiting firms for the automotive and manufacturing industries in the United States. With 20 years of recruiting experience, I am regarded as a subject matter expert in automotive and am the “go-to” recruiter for Tier 1 suppliers across North America.

Professionally, after spending many years in management for a large retail company, I transitioned to a career in HR & Recruiting. This is where I found my niche and passion, helping automotive and manufacturing companies grow by finding them the best talent and brightest people. I focus my expertise on recruiting management and engineering positions.

I am a proud first-generation college graduate and a daughter of an immigrant family who came to the United States to pursue the “American Dream”. This same motivation and work ethic led me to launch 5 Star Recruitment, and the energy and drive I put into finding the perfect candidates for my clients. I support my clients by helping their companies thrive, building a successful talent pipeline, and hiring top performers and solid leaders.

Personally, I enjoy exploring Florida's beaches and soaking up the gorgeous Emerald Coast. When at home, I love relaxing with my pup, Rosie, watching Shark Tank and eating tacos. One of my favorite quotes is by Zig Ziglar, “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”
