Testimonials

“Bryan Kooi was excellent to work with.  His professionalism, timeliness and attention to detail was exemplary!  Additionally all the candidates that we interviewed complimented Bryan on the fact that “He cared”.  This is a very important trait that we look for when using a recruiter.  We lift up family values, look for that in a recruiter and have it with Bryan.  We would gladly use Bryan for future hires.”

“I have worked with Brad Krommendyk and Great Plains Consulting for 14 years and always have been very satisfied with our results.  Brad would always ask specifically what we were looking for and would search for that person.  Over the years Brad developed a sense for the attributes of the individual candidates needed and would pre-screen candidates for our needs, saving us time and effort.  I have appreciated his skills and felt he was part of our team.  We have had very good success together.”

“I would highly recommend Brad and the team at Great Plains for any staffing need in our company.  They have been SO great to work with – extremely quick and responsive – and they really take the time to listen to our company’s needs.  The staff at Great Plains gains my utmost respect in providing the most highly qualified candidates for our open positions.  We rely on them as a key component of our recruitment strategy!”

“Over the past 25 years we have talked with employment recruiters many times.  We have hired several of our staff members as a result of contacts from such firms.  Usually these relationships are bittersweet and transactional.  Working with Bryan was different.  Bryan first was easy to talk with which is important in terms of helping us to think beyond an initial interview with a candidate.  Bryan seemed to understand what the candidate was looking for and was able to help us see potential based on what our criteria was for our open position.

It was enjoyable talking through an eventual offer with Bryan and he ended up being a very good mediator between the candidate and ourselves and I found it easy to trust him.  I found Bryan professional and willing to work on putting the candidate and ourselves together.  We appreciated working with Bryan and wouldn’t hesitate to work with him in the future.  Bryan helped us with hiring a right person and I feel we ended up with Bryan and Great Plains being as long term advocates for our business.”

“This letter is written to thank you for your professional service and recruitment of key personnel for our organization. Over the years, I’ve been reluctant to spend my personal time talking to recruiters because so frequently it seems that they wasted my time by not previewing candidates before they brought them to my attention. That absolutely has not been the case in working with you and that is why you are one of the very few recruiters that I will talk to and work with on a personal basis.Thanks again for understanding our company’s needs and growth patterns and responding to it on a continued basis.”

Clayton — Owner
