Debi goes beyond the superficial interactions of a typical recruiter and really strives to understand her client’s motivations and career goals so that she recommends the right job. She also has the industry knowledge and contacts to even be able to direct her clients to companies she does not represent – including companies she knows she would not get reimbursed from. With her knowledge, she provided wonderful information on which companies/positions were or were not desireable. I also interacted with several associates in Apple and Associates and had great experiences with them as well; which reflects upon how Debi has set (and managed to) an exceptional service level. While at the end of my search I had job offers from other recruiters, Debi continued to check on me and took the time to assist with salary negotiations.

I would like to highly recommend Debi and her network of connections if you are in the market for a new job. She was a joy to work with and has an exceptional rate of success. Most impressive, is her ability to be so personable while maintaining a high level of professionalism. I met her as a recruiter, now we are good friends!

I have used Apple & Associates for at least 13 years and been very pleased with their service and ability to meet my hiring needs. Over the years, I have hired directly or indirectly over 50 people. They are the best medical device and pharmaceutical recruiters I have used. Types of jobs that I have hired include Plant managers, QA Managers, Planning, HR, Engineering and Accounting Professionals. They are also good at finding people that will be willing to travel to less desirable places. I recently hired a Lean Leader through Apple & Associates in Brazil using their South American expert. They are very professional and consistently deliver a high-quality level of talent. They are considered one of our premiere recruiters and are always utilized for employment needs within West.

As a 30+ year HR professional, I have worked with many recruiting agencies over my career and can honestly say that Debbie Apple and her team at Apple and Associates are some of the best to work with. I have personally worked with Debbie for the past 9 years and have found her and her team to be very professional and extremely responsive in their job searches with BD.

Apple and Associates differentiates themselves by establishing a personal relationship with their partner companies in order to find “right fit” talent for the position. They not only concentrate on “what” the person brings to the job, but also “how” they will interact and fit into the organization. Additionally, Debbie and her team strive to provide quality of candidates versus quantity. You can count on them to prescreen appropriately and conduct professional references for you in order to help you make effective and efficient decisions.

Therefore, I would highly recommend Apple and Associates for any organization that needs a professional recruiting team working on their behalf.

I think extremely highly of Apple & Associates, and therefore it is my great pleasure to write a letter of recommendation on their behalf.

Terumo has worked with Apple & Associates for 2 years and use them as our “go to” staffing agency for many positions. We use them to staff many of our Product Manager and Engineering positions for several of our locations. Terumo is a medical device company that manufactures quality devices produced and managed by great employees, and Apple & Associates has assisted us in the journey to find these extraordinary people.

Debi Apple and her team consistently work to find great candidates to fill many positions we have at Terumo.  They research and engage their clients to find the best candidate that will compliment the culture and drive of the company/firm.  They do not hesitate to withdraw a candidate during the interview process should they feel the candidate is no longer a good fit for the position. In addition, they have demonstrated excellent observations, and an ability to communicate and suggest change in how to recruit for a “hard to fill” position. 

In many areas, Apple & Associates has gone beyond expectations, and has out-shined all others in their peer-group. Debi and her team are very likeable and professional people. I have no doubt that they will be the answer to your staffing needs, and someday your #1 “go to” staffing firm.
