I would say that Wade showed exceptional follow up. He had several recommendations for me and really put forth the effort to make it happen.Comment From A Recently Placed Customer
Heidi, Just a quick note…Thank you so much for sending over Michelle…In two days she has picked up the procedures, solved the backlog that her predecessor left, and has fallen into the PFSC way of life. Thank you again for a great job in helping us solve a big void in my department.Comment From A Recently Placed Customer
I really appreciated the positive attitude and enthusiasm that Car People Portland had while I was searching for a new career.
Gosh, what can I say, you know all of the people in the car business in Portland and Vancouver. I didn’t have to do a thing. Your knowledge of the business resulted in me getting interviews and my first Service Manager job. I’m so glad I found Car People Portland.Comment From A Placed Customer

Wade at Car People Portland was very helpful in finding me my new job. He knows the important people in the Portland market to get you in front of. He placed me in the job I was looking for and with some very good people to work for.Placed Service Advisor
Car People Portland is always there for me. Heidi is attentive, professional and she never gives up. I know she truly cares and I am important to her. I’ve never met anyone in my 50 years that is really a stranger but cares about me. She goes the extra mile, never cuts me off but instead takes the time to hear me out and be a sounding board for me. When I was recently laid off she helped me get through a tough situation and quickly placed me in my new job. Thanks for being so positive and believing in me.Comment From A Placed Customer

You are so wonderful Heidi. Thank you. I can’t express my gratitude to you for being so quick in finding me a job. And for all the chances you took on me. Your faith in me and how well I would do at this position is overwhelming. I have never had someone go out on such a limb for me before. I have never dealt with such efficiency. You are great!
I realize that Heidi’s job is to place people but I feel she goes over and beyond her job duties. She really helped me get a job that I am very happy with. I think that Heidi is a wonderful person; someone with a huge heart.Comment From A Placed Customer
What I like about Car People Portland is that it works! They are focused on dealership openings as opposed to me having to look in the newspaper or the Internet. Their website is a great tool in searching for a new job. It really worked for me.Comment From A Placed Customer
I highly recommend Car People Portland and Heidi Nelson particularly. I’ve hired several very qualified people through Heidi and she always does a good job for me. Recently I had the opportunity to use her services personally, and I can’t thank her enough for helping to place me in my new position as Office Manager.Comment From A Placed Customer
Basically, Wade at Car People Portland did his best to find me a new job. He was very professional and easy to work with. It was just a great experience.Comment From A Placed Customer
When I decided to look for a new job I contacted Car People Portland to see what they were like. I was hesitant because I’d never contacted a staffing service before. I immediately found them to be very personable and easy to work with. Heidi was great and made things very easy for me in my job search. This is a fantastic job she got for me at Courtesy Ford. I really like working for the Dealer Principal and the rest of the staff!Comment From A Placed Customer

Heidi, thank you so much for your help in obtaining my future employment. I look forward to working with you again but on the hiring side of things. I think all roads led to you a couple of weeks ago when I was laid off. This position feels so good to me. The other jobs I was looking and trying for just didn’t fit like this one does.Comment From A Placed Customer
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.Mr. Grant Petersen

Car People Portland is an excellent resource for recruiting automotive experienced people. They understand the positions and the needs of the industry.

I wanted to thank you for the incredibly strong, professional job Car People Portland did in representing me to the dealers in the Portland area. You scheduled three interviews in the week following my first contact with you, and the third interview was then one that landed me my present job. In my book, that’s absolutely the best that anyone has ever done for me. You guys dig right in and you get results. No one could ask for any more than that. Thanks, you’re the best.Ralph Keys
It’s simple, and their service really works!Gary Greenberg
