– Human Capital Director for a global manufacturer 

“The level of open communication throughout the process was terrific. I never felt like I was being gamed with the team being open and honest.”

– VP of Corporate Development for a consumer holding company  

“We do most of our recruiting in house, but there have been several positions where we use retained search firms. I have been in HR a long time and have worked with many firms, and the transparency and the way in which Steven and team really mapped out the process for us was terrific.

  • They gave their insight and helped us shape the position
  • They gave us data as to why they were recommending different salaries and the sweet spot in skill sets they felt like we needed. You could tell they cared
  • They presented a really good candidate slate
  • They made sure the pipeline has a diverse slate of candidates
  • They worked really well with our CEO
  • They were collaborative and committed”

– Human Capital Senior Director for a data center maintenance company  

“I think the work done up front to really get to know what we were looking for paid off. That produced a very strong scorecard and the research done on the back-end really set us up for success.”

– President for an HVAC services company 

“I have already recommended you to others. CAI has a very good process. You know where to source candidates, how to talk to them and how to prepare them. I have found it more efficient to use Charles Aris, especially over my internal team. You screen candidates very well.”

– SVP of Strategy for an information technology and services company

Candidate Testimonials

“The team was really helpful throughout the whole process. They said they would share information, whether good or bad; I really appreciated that transparency. I also received prompt feedback. Even if they weren’t talking to the client soon, they would let me know so I could manage my expectations. There have been many times when I’ve worked with recruiters where they don’t reach back out to let you know what’s happening. Charles Aris doesn’t do that!

This was easily, by far, the best recruiting experience I have ever gone through. I was treated as a person and a candidate, not as a means for a paycheck.”

– CFO for a manufacturing technology company


“The engagement with [the associate] was great. She was able to easily establish a rapport to eliminate any interview anxiety. The comfort she instills makes the process a lot more relaxed. Her depth and frequency of communication were super helpful – especially with processes that are not linear. She keeps you up to speed with what is going on and was very transparent.”

– CEO for a biotechnology company

“I’ve worked in HR for 20 years now and have used both contingent and retained recruiters.  Honestly, Charles Aris blew me away. The process is so thorough, it is remarkable. Every part of the process was very clear and transparent. Everything from ensuring the lighting on my zoom calls to information on the people I would be meeting with – the entire experience was so comprehensive it made it easy.”

– Human Capital executive
