Additional Candidate Testimonials

“I am very happy to share my experience that I had working with Ron because it was great and I feel like I really hit a home run with my new position! From the first meeting that I had with Ron Ritchey he immediately separated himself from others recruiters that I have worked with in the past. Ron understands how IT Infrastructure works and the skills that are necessary at each position which clearly separates him from other recruiters. Ron also provided me with a clear picture of each position that he presented to me. This was the most important point that made the job hunting experience enjoyable working with Ron personally. Any software program can match skill sets, but it is a real art to match job functions to a person’s skill set. Through the entire process Ron communicated all company feedback honestly, timely and made sure that my interest in the company’s position was the fit that I was looking for. My job hunting experience was very positive, and I recommend Performance Recruiters, Inc. to any IT professionals looking for a new position. If I ever need to look for another position Performance Recruiters, Inc. will be the only person that I call.”

He remained engaged throughout my interview process, and provided encouragement and positive feedback through phone calls and email.

From the staffing perspective, he has a network of solid candidates and responds only with well qualified candidates, which match the opportunity. All of the resources that I have hired from Ron always exceeded my expectations. Recently, I partnered with Performance Recruiters in an opportunity for myself. Again, Ron networked directly with the hiring manager. In just a short time, he matched me with a solid employer in the DFW area.”

Larry Pennington

Database Manager, Perot Systems, Inc.

“Ron Ritchey at Performance Recruiters found me an employer that fit my requirements. The Employer wanted very specific skills that I have and without his personal knowledge of those skills I wouldn’t have gotten an interview. His relationship with the employer enable me to get past some of the general questions and get to the job/skills that they wanted to hear about. Considering the hiring process of the company, Ron did a great job working around the obstacles.”

Cory Pitt

San Engineer, XTO Energy

“Ron was very professional and ethical in his approach and he was always ready to answer questions. He kept me informed during every step of the process. He kept the lines of communication between the candidate and the client. I would definitely recommend his services as a recruiter and would not hesitate to work with him in the future.”

Rama Raguraman

“To start with – Ron Ritchey is great to work with and he gave me a new leash of life in my career in Dallas. Before moving in to Dallas, I was in Detroit, Michigan, my family and I were so desperate to move down to the southern region because of a personal reasons. Ron and I had a discussion for a particular assignment, and he submitted my profile for that position. Through the whole hiring process, he always followed up with the client and updated me with the status. I never felt like I was working with a company in a different state. Ron never behaved like a middle-man company, but treats you like his very own brother. Now, if I any of my friends looking for a job, I first ask them to check with Ron. If you are looking for a change and contacted Ron, I would say you are at the right hands”

“Ron Ritchey is a top-notch recruiter. In working with Ron, I found him to be open, candid, and thorough. His knowledge of the company and position was detailed and he provided me with the insight and knowledge I needed to effectively interview and make decisions. Ron was in constant communication with myself and the company. His follow through was efficent. He represented my interests and the interests of the company in balance for a win-win outcome. I have recommended Ron to several of my collegues, and I would recommend Ron to anyone seeking a job, or to anyone seeking qualified candidates to fill a position.”

William Farmer

Director, Experian Corporation

“Ron Ritchey is by far the best recruiter I have worked with in my 20 years in the IT industry. He is professional, honest, and is truly interested in finding the correct fit for both the company and the individual. I was very impressed with the manner in which he balanced my personal interests and the interests of his client (now my employer). Finding that balance is a skill that most recruiters have not learned. In my particular job search, he knew the client and their environment very well, and was very knowledgeable about the duties of the position. He stayed in constant communication throughout the process, and was prompt in returning calls and answering any questions that came up. My job search resulted in a successful result, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Hopefully, I won’t need Ron’s services for quite some time, but if I do find myself in that position, the first phone call I make will be to Ron. Whether you are an individual looking for a job, or a company looking to fill a position, I highly recommend that you give Ron the opportunity to assist you. I can guarantee that you will be happy with the service you receive.”

Paul Anderson

EDI Specialist, Levi Strauss & Company

“I’d like to share the experience that I had working with Ron Ritchey as my professional recruiter. During this process, it was as if Ron became a part of my family. We were in constant communication about the job and the expectations of the company that I was placed with. Ron gave me a history of the company and I was impressed with the relationship that he had with them which made me comfortable in making my decision to go there. He was totally honest about the whole process and didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear. He simply stuck with the facts. I have had contact with recruiters before and right off the bat I knew that they didn’t have my best interest in their sights. So when Ron and I talked a few times, I felt comfortable with his personality and trusted him with my career path. I like my new job and I’m satisfied with the services that I obtained from Ron. I would definitely use his services again.”

“I was looking for a job after 10 years, and was getting frustrated with calls from so many recruiters. All of those recruiters want me to say “YES”, so that they can submit my resume “ASAP”! But when I got a call from Ron’s company, it was different. He took his time getting all my details, met me in person, and explained not just the job, but also about job environment. Ron made absolute sure that I have a complete understanding of this job. In short, the whole process; from first phone call to last phone call “You got the JOB!”, Ron showed professionalism, honesty and dedication. ”
