Testimonials · Austin Allen Company

Professional Recruitment since 1973


Excellence.  Integrity.  Consistency.  These are just a few words that come to mind when I think about Austin Allen. Angie and I have worked together for almost 8 years and during that time, I have come to count on her for her professionalism and her ability to get the job done.  As an HR professional, I am keenly aware of the importance placed on recruitment and retention.  I am certain that our partnership with Angie and the staff at Austin Allen has been a key to our success in this vital effort.”

“I have worked with Dennis pretty much exclusively over the past few years, as he is our “go to” guy when we have a tough recruiting challenge. He has never let us down. He is a consummate professional and reflects well on The Austin Allen Company.”
CD – Human Resources – Toshiba

“As a recruiting professional, I have had the pleasure of partnering with Teri Alexander of Austin-Allen for many of our recruiting needs.  She has been extremely prompt and responsive to the ever-changing needs of our company and there have been many!  Her professionalism along with her desire to provide the very best service for both client and customer, has resulted in several great engineering hires.  I have worked with many different recruiters during my 15 years of recruiting and I can honestly say that no one does it better than Teri.  I have been so satisfied with her work that the last six engineering hires were listed exclusively with Teri.

“It is very rare to find a recruiting partner that gets to know your company beyond the job description in an effort to better fill your positions. We have found that with Charlotte Cupp and Austin Allen. Charlotte knows our culture and our work community personality and it shows in her referrals. We know she will only send us the best so we do not have to wade through resumes. Charlotte’s flexibility and willingness to do whatever it takes to facilitate the process is so appreciated and has helped us add some amazing people to our team.”

PD – Director of Human Resources – Superior Manufacturing Group

“I first met Dennis in 1995, when my boss introduced him to me and I have been working with Dennis since that time. Anytime I call with a request for engineers, he drops whatever he is working on and understands the urgency of my request. He is relentless and does whatever it takes. I really appreciate his help over the years and I will call Dennis before anyone else because I know the job will get done.”  
LL – Human Resources – TG Missouri Corporation

“As an H.R. professional, I have had the opportunity to work with countless recruiters and recruiting firms. When it comes down to it, Martha Woodham and Austin Allen Company are always the ones I call when I want the job done right. Whether it is recruiting the right people to make our team stronger, or even when I decided to enhance my own personnel career, Martha has been my number one pick and she has never let me down.  Over the numerous years I have worked with Martha, she has proven to be not only a great recruiter but also a person that truly cares about the people she works with. Whether you are recruiting or being recruited, rest assured that Martha will be there. This is why I not only depend on Martha as a first class recruiter; I also consider her a good friend.”
EW – Human Resource Manager – CMC Steel

“As a Human Resources Professional, I have dealt with many search firms over the past 17 years and feel very comfortable in saying that Austin Allen, under the leadership of Charlotte Cupp is one, if not the best and most professionally ran organizations around. When we place an order with Austin Allen, we are assured that each and every candidate provided meets and/or exceeds the requirements specified; hence, the only question remains is whether or not the chemistry is right. Charlotte and her organization is one that is very customer focused, is able to balance the needs of both the candidate and client, and most importantly thinks outside the box as it relates to recruitment and candidate selections. It is a pleasure doing business with Austin Allen!!”  
BF – Vice President – Power Partners, Inc

“Teri, My wife said you had called the other day so thought I’d drop you a line. Things with J.R. Simplot are going great. I love the job and the area. The job will be very challenging but I am the right man for the job. I can not thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to get me in this position. I know at times it was very demanding and time consuming but the whole thing would never had happen without you. It has totally changed our life’s for the better and we only see great things ahead.
Teri, at the time we were going through this whole thing we were really down on our luck. I had lost my job, money was tight and we were going to lose our house, times ahead were looking pretty bad . But because of all your hard work we now see a light at the end of the tunnel. To sum it up, without your help we would have been homeless and broke.
I know at times I was hard to work with, but you kept it together even with all of the things going on in your life, (car accident, and life in general) and life is now good. Thanks for everything and I will drop you a line once in awhile to keep in touch. If there is ever anything I can do for you please call.

“I want to personally thank Austin Allen Company for helping me find and excellent job opportunity.  Teri, in my opinion, went well above and beyond with guiding me through the entire process of job hunting.  I received a wealth of information in the lasted tips for phone and panel interviewing which proved very beneficial for my career.  My skills and knowledge with interviewing were so out of date due to so many years at one job; Teri was very patient with me and all my questions. ” Thank you again,

“Thank you Bill, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be, so we will continue with the search. I must say that I’m impressed with your level of attention that you have shown me and I really appreciate everything you have done.

I use recruiters to find employees for vacancies with my own staff, and have never felt they gave me the personal attention you have shown. I will continue to use your service after I’m hired at my new company and I have placed Austin Allen on our approved recruiter list. Keep up the good work and hopefully something will pan out for me in the future. ”
DH, Plant Manager

Although we’ve never met, over the years we worked together indirectly when I was hiring manager for several engineering positions at our site.  I’ve reviewed my fair share of resumes from Austin~Allen and remember you introduced us to great engineers and always met our placement needs.  Sandi Walding and Mikki Pilgrim were your direct HR contacts and they considered you the best search and placement professional in the region. 
JM – Senior Manager – Sony Electronics

“This is the first time that I have ever written anyone regarding anything. I just wanted you to know that I have never been so impressed with a recruiter, as I have with Teri!  She has been very professional, personable and concerned about helping me with my job search. Keeping me updated with potential companies and positions that I would be a good fit for has been her ongoing search.
She has always been pleasant, encouraging and patient with me; understanding that it is difficult to  wait for the right position to become available that meet both the company and my expectations.  I am also happy with her willingness to work with other recruiters to help find possible openings.
Even if I do not obtain employment through Teri, I still think that I have been serviced by her to the best of my qualifications and time.  Please recognize Teri for her hard work and comment to her clients.”
A. Andrews

Allee Webb has been the driving force behind our relationship and has always been available to do whatever was asked of her.  She takes great pride in her work and has been very attentive to the needs of her clients. Allee has taken the time to know and understand our needs and has made a concentrated effort to find employees who fit our standards.  I would not hesitate to recommend her to handle your business needs.
GM – Human Resource Manager – Temple –  Inland

“I have worked with several professional recruiters throughout my career and Allee is by far the best. She was very professional, recognized my strengths and coached me on my weaknesses. Hands down she got me the best job of my career.” April 9, 2012 -David B. (Candidate)

Angie Grooms and the Austin Allen Company were a complete joy to work with as I was seeking a new employment opportunity.  They acted quickly to find a suitable position for me that met the needs of my new employer.  I had interviewed and been presented with an offer in less than 10 days from my first contact with Angie.
I have worked with several recruiting firms over my career as a manager and as a candidate, and I can assure you that the Austin Allen Company is in the
business of helping qualified people find positions that fit the needs of the employer – not just seeking a finders fee.  Angie seemed just as invested
in finding me a new opportunity as I was, and that is rare these days.  Thank you Angie and Austin Allen for helping me make a great career move!
