Recruiting Service Testimonials

"Professional. Dedicated. Highly Connected."
I heard about CPG through a colleague, and after doing my research discovered that they are very specialized for the consumer goods industry in Canada. We initially posted jobs with CPG Connect, and when we found out that they also had a recruiting service, we engaged their services for a Product Manager role that we were having a difficult time filling. Our business is specialized, and we required marketing candidates with houseware experience having exposure dealing with speciality store channels. CPG Connect was flexible to come in at the later stage of our search, and quickly shared good, qualified resumes of candidates with the experience that we required. Compared to other agencies that we have worked with, CPG Connect is definitely on the top. They are professional, dedicated, and highly connected. I always recommend CPG Connect internally to my hiring managers.
- Sheri Benjamin, Groupe SEB

"Exceptional Industry Connectivity"
I was introduced to Hershi Rubinoff from CPG Connect by my counter-part at Nestle Canada. At the time, we were working on a Sr. National Account role, critical to our business, and had exhausted our normal channels including two other recruiters. We engaged CPG Connect’s Recruiting Service, and were immediately impressed with their attentiveness to understanding our business, and our recruitment needs. We went on to get their support on several other key roles including; a Manager, Commercial Strategy & Shelf Management, Shopper Insight Manager, and a Marketing Manager. On all searches, they listened intently to our business needs, and were successful at delivering an excellent spectrum of candidates matching our needs, from which we were able to make some great hires from. The CPG Connect team has great industry connectivity. They work hard, deliver results, and are a pleasure to work with. I’m happy to recommend their Recruiting Service any day.
- Bruce Fraser, Nestlé Waters Canada

"Fast. Easy. Rock-star Candidates."
Our business was growing at a rapid rate, and we were looking to hire top-level Consumer Goods professionals to continue driving business growth. We were connected with Hershi Rubinoff, the lead Recruiter at CPG Connect, and her company was instrumental in helping us fill several roles in our organization. CPG Connect Recruit, was successful at helping us quickly find our needle-in-a-haystack candidate for our Customer Service Manager role; and also did a stand-up job with filling numerous Sales Rep vacancies. Our team is now staffed with rock-star candidates thanks to CPG Connect’s help, and they are additionally a great cultural fit with our company – which is something that is very important to us. Working with CPG Connect was fast & easy! I would without hesitation recommend CPG Connect’s Recruiting Service, and will definitely be using them again when the need arises.
- Patrick Faucher, Garden of Life Canada

"Easy. Industry Specialists."
"CPG Connect’s Recruiting Service was an invaluable service in my search for a Senior Supply Chain professional when I worked at Hershey Canada. Filling the position was urgent and, with it being a management position, we needed a service that minimized admin work so that we could focus on the strategic part of recruiting; interviewing candidates. We decided to try CPG Connect’s Recruiting Service as they are specialists for the industry. Our experience with the Connect Recruiting Service was very positive, and in one word I would describe it as “easy.” CPG Connect delivered all qualified applications in one email and provided a nice snap shot of candidate profiles that was very easy to share with the hiring manager. From this process, we quickly found a high potential hire with the required management and educational experience that we were looking for. I would have no reservation recommending the Connect Recruiting Service. They are specialists for the industry, have great connectivity and knowledge, and as a result, it was one of the most effective agencies I have used!"
- Catherine Fulton, HD Supply Canada (previously Hershey Canada)

"Bang on Candidates. Ample Submissions. Great Summary Notes."
"We have had a long-standing relationship with CPG Connect and have successfully advertised jobs with them since 2009. My counter-part was having a difficult time finding a Category Analyst and decided to try the Connect Recruiting Service. CPG Connect quickly connected her with 10 very qualified candidates, in which 2 hires were made. It was from this experience that I decided to use the CPG Connect Recruiting Service when I had an influx of Sales and Trade Marketing Roles. I really enjoy working with the CPG Connect team. They are a very likeable and service-oriented group and their deliverables are always on time or earlier. In terms of what sets their service apart, we like that they provide an organized spreadsheet on presented candidates and that they give a full spectrum of people, versus 3 sporadic candidates, for comparative purposes. The candidates they present are always bang on and high caliber. I would encourage any interested colleague to use the CPG Connect Recruiting Service."
- Asmaa Pasha, Campbell Company of Canada

"Hassle-Free. Great Connectivity. Work with 1 Vendor."
"I was hearing lots of positive buzz about CPG Connect through colleagues and upon inquiring further with CPG Connect, I discovered that in addition to a job posting service, they now offered a Recruiting Service. We are a growing organization in Canada, so I liked the idea of a multiple service offering (Job Postings and Recruiting Service), and that I could easily work with one vendor for my recruitment needs. We decided to use the Recruiting Service for a Supply Chain Manager position, and the candidates we received were on spec and outstanding! The decision of who to hire was difficult, which is always good. Compared to other recruitment agencies, CPG Connect is just starting to build a history with their members, but this did not stop them from being able to quickly find and deliver top candidates. The CPG Connect Recruiting Service saved time, and connected me with great people!"
- Andrew Salisbury, Bellisio Foods Canada
Job Board Testimonials
"Fast. Targeted. Viral. Results!"
"We decided to try CPG Connect to complement our search after hearing there was a new job board that focused on candidates for our industry. We had tried other more general job boards in the past which was a frustrating and time consuming experience. CPG Connect was a refreshing change that was fast and effective. In addition to posting our job, they featured it in their bi-weekly newsletter. Through this targeted and viral process we were able to screen, interview and eventually hire the best candidate. I would certainly recommend CPG Connect. I found it more focused than other job boards. It gets directly to the CPG talent you want to connect with!"
- Glenn Conrod, Belvedere International
"Cost Effective. More Targeted. Easy to Use."
"We went to CPG Connect after being unsuccessful at getting the pipeline of candidates we needed from search firms and from our website. We liked the idea that CPG Connect targeted people with CPG backgrounds and we were eager to try them out. Our experience using CPG Connect superseded our expectations. We received over 300 applications for 2 positions; with 70% having CPG backgrounds. From this, we were able to identify candidates to hire for both positions! CPG Connect was cost effective, more targeted and an easy tool to use. I would strongly recommend CPG Connect to anyone looking to hire professionals with CPG backgrounds!"
- Joyce Moore, Coca-Cola Ltd.
"Great Customer Service. Highly Qualified Candidates."
"Upon visiting CPG Connect and seeing all of the hiring companies, we were curious to try the site out. We felt that it was a unique, cost effective solution to reaching professionals with experience in our industry. Overall, our experience using CPG Connect was very pleasant. We were impressed with the customer service and follow up. In addition, compared to other sites, the candidates were more suitable and the volume of applicants was much more manageable. From this process, we were able to quickly hire a Jr. Account Manager. I would highly recommend CPG Connect. The staff are friendly, the candidates are highly qualified, and you enjoy significant time savings."
- Lily Shen, Crystal Claire Cosmetics Inc.
"Easier. Faster. Better Resumes."
"We went to CPG Connect to find candidates with CPG backgrounds. We had used generalist job boards in the past, but found that they did not meet our needs. We would get a large response from people with varying backgrounds not related to our industry. With CPG Connect, we got professionals with the right CPG background and the site has significantly reduced our time to hire. We have been very pleased with CPG Connect. The site is easier to use, you get better resumes and your time to hire is faster. If you are looking to reach CPG professionals, CPG Connect is well worth the try!"
- Manon Pelletier, Danone
"Great Candidates. Great Referrals. Great Branding."
"We tried out CPG Connect because it is the only National site for CPG talent. The site exceeded our expectations by delivering over 1,000 views in one month and additional referrals. As a result of this, I will be using CPG Connect for senior talent over Monster & Workopolis. The site has been a great vehicle for building my brand and my candidate pool. I would highly recommend trying it out!"
- Sherry Sharma, Consumer Impact Marketing
"Specialized Talent. Quick. Cost Effective."
"We went to CPG Connect to find specialized talent and CPG Connect delivered. Using CPG Connect eliminated the time consuming, tedious process of weeding out 200 - 300 resumes and that uneasy feeling that you are missing someone in the process. CPG Connect was cost effective, efficient and quick. I will definitely use the site again and would recommend it to anyone looking for CPG talent."
- Gerhard Doepner, Dr. Oetker Canada Ltd.

"Huge Time Saver. Cost Effective Solution to Recruiters."
"CPG Connect was an invaluable resource in our most recent CPG search. We were looking for an efficient and cost effective way to directly reach CPG professionals and CPG Connect delivered! With posting our job on CPG Connect, we only received CPG resumes and in addition to this, got a diverse set of applicants. If you have a job opening where a CPG skill set is critical, I would highly recommend trying out CPG Connect. It was far better than any general job board or print ad we've ever tried, and was a cost effective alternative versus recruiters. We quickly got a great response from highly qualified CPG professionals that in the past we would have paid big dollars for recruiters to deliver."
- HR Manager, Company Confidential
