Comment From Placed General Manager at the largest Honda dealership in our market

New General Manager  BEAVERTON HONDA  Placed June 2017

Heidi is exceptional to work with. I spent over a year working with her for a relocation to Oregon. She placed me at the best Honda Dealership in the Northwest. She worked tirelessly to get the job done, the assistance in preparation was perfect. I would highly recommend Car People to anyone. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Comment From am Auto Group Corporate Level Aftermarket & Special Projects Manager

Placed Aftermarket & Special Projects Manager – Auto Group Corporate Office

Heidi is a priceless asset to me.  As a recruiter she is the full package.  I have worked with other executive recruiters and none of them have come close to Heidi.  She focused on me and the jobs she had for me.  Heidi helped me with my resume, my new apartment and my move!

Comment From a Chief Financial Officer

Automotive CFO, Portland / Vancouver Metro Area Dealership

Heidi has helped me as an outside recruiter for the past three years. Before I moved to Portland I had a poor image of what an outside recruiting agency could do for me as an employer. In fact, I wouldn’t use them ever. Heidi changed that attitude for me in a very positive way. She definitely earns the fees she charges. I have hired numerous successful employees through Heidi that have been great success stories. I would, without question, recommend Heidi Nelson and her recruiting services to anyone. She is awesome!

Dealer Principal, Northwest Auto Group

Compared with your competition in other cities you never sent anyone that wasn’t qualified and didn’t want to be in Boise, Idaho. I have talked to lots of different recruiters and you really did your homework. You were very patient with me and I can be difficult to work for. You really earned your stripes and want to thank you for helping me find the right match for the Controller position open at Bronco Motors.
