“Colantonio Inc has been working with Jon and CRI for over 20 years. I’ve been working with Jon for over 15 of those years. Jon has placed a majority of my operations staff over those 15 years, with numerous placements now sitting in senior decision-making roles. Jon understands our company culture and has always looked to place individuals that will thrive in our culture setting. Jon and CRI have a good understanding of the market and a strong network of people in the industry which helps bring good people to the table. I know when I call Jon he’ll come through with candidates that will fit the bill, in a professional, timely, and trustworthy manner.”

“I found Jack Dwyer and Jon Factor through LinkedIn. Both were super professional and understood what I was looking for. They have extensive knowledge of the local companies and are well connected. Unlike other recruiters that try to force an applicant to an opening and collect a quick commission, CRI tries to match an opening with the applicant’s wants and needs. I definitely will come back to CRI in the future if I am ever considering changing companies.”

“I have known Danielle Poole for over half a decade now and we have always had a personable yet professional relationship in our discussions over the years. She has always been open and honest. Recently a company I was working for fell on hard times due to Covid-19 and laid a few people off, myself included.

From the moment I was laid off (I contacted her within 5 minutes of my lay-off) right up until I had a new position, Danielle had made sure both clients (Employee and Employer) were going to be a great fit for one another.

I haven’t had the best of experiences with recruiters in the past, but I was not mislead, lied to, or given a false sense of security at any point while working with Danielle. She is one deserving of the respect she has earned. I’m thankful for the level of trust built over the years because Danielle really came through for me.

Thank you for all your hard work.”

“I first worked with Jon and CRI over ten years ago. Estimators can be very hard to find and Jon has a good sense on who could be a fit and why – not just looking at a resume but understanding our needs and culture in order to find the right people/person at the right time. First-hand market knowledge is always very helpful and Jon is always available and accessible. With a very busy and positive outlook, we look forward to working with Jon in the future.”

“Danielle recently helped place me in a new job that was a perfect fit for me. Throughout the process she was attentive, responsive, and easy to work with. She also has specialized knowledge about the construction/ real estate industry that sets her apart from other recruiters I’ve worked with in the past. My favorite thing about working with Danielle is that she is incredibly patient and is never pushy. I never felt as though she was trying to push me in a direction I wasn’t ready to go. I am so appreciative for how helpful Danielle was throughout my job search process and would recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and professional recruiter!”

“I’ve used Tyler Besner at CRI both to make multiple senior hires for my company, and in my own career – his professionalism, insight and management skills are truly second to none. I regularly recommend him and CRI to my network.”

Ed J

“Initially I was on the fence about making the switch and wanted do my best to see if any former employer could meet some requests before I left. Josh was patient and made sure to follow up with me every so often to provide support and answer questions. He didn’t flood my inbox, he didn’t try to sell me on a bunch of different opportunities, or pressure me into making a decision I wasn’t ready to make. Once I decided it was time, he made himself available to chat and listened closely to what I was looking for. After running a few opportunities by me we found what we thought would be a great fit. He kept in constant contact throughout the process, kept me in the loop, and gave me useful feedback. Once I received the offer he also helped to make sure I had all my questions answered. All in all I have to say that during the transition Josh really pulled through to make sure I felt confident that I was making the right decision. I am very happy at my new job, and very thankful for all of Josh’s help and support along the way. He really exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to make a switch!”
