Monique Claytor Talent Acquisition Specialist and Recruiter at ARDX “ Melissa is truly exceptional! She is a very dedicated and hard worker. Melissa puts her best foot forward in every task that she does. She is thorough, and after working with her for a year I cannot recall a time when a mistake was made. While working with her I viewed her as very attentive to both clients and candidates needs. She seeks first to understand before making any decision. She is definitely a shining star and would be a great addition to any company!

I have worked with Melissa Richardson on multiple occasions. She assisted us when we needed a temp to hire, and she has also provided us with additional temporary help since then. From the first time I spoke to Melissa on the phone, she has been a pleasure to deal with. She is friendly and personable, and she responded to my requests very quickly. When we were hiring a temp to hire, she provided us with several outstanding candidates. She also got all of the information I would need to me right away, and she was able to schedule the interviews to fit into my busy schedule. I am confident that when we need temporary help at our office, she will be there to fulfill our needs. She is one of the primary reasons I have chosen to use AppleOne over other agencies-the other reason being the outstanding candidates she sends to me. She is a joy to do business with.

I would certainly recommend her for seeking your next rewarding position".

"Melissa's ability to match a candidate with a position is unmatched. Melissa presents her candidates with necessary information in a professional and thoughtful manner and she is excellent about returning phone calls and emails in a timely fashion. Melissa's feedback and positivity helped build my confidence that I would be hired on as a permanent employee after my 3 month contract. I have always been impressed by Melissa's enthusiasm for her profession, I feel that she passes along that enthusiasm to her candidates. Melissa is by far the most professional and considerate recruiter I have had the pleasure of working with. You can tell she is very passionate about helping others".
