“One of the biggest challenges in growing our home improvement business was the entire recruiting and hiring process. Our old process was overwhelming, time consuming, and ineffective at finding the right candidates at the right time. We began working with Grapevine early this year and their process has been very thorough, yet simple for us to use. We have successfully filled one management position and have 2 other positions with solid candidates. We are filling key positions in less than half the time and effort. If you have a home improvement company and are not in the Chicago area, we would highly recommend Grapevine to fill your key positions.” — Justin Bartley, President, Next Door & Window Company
“Andy was a terrific recruiter to work with on my search for a candidate for a brand new Business Development role in our organization. From the time he got the assignment to the time we had a signed offer letter from our final candidate Andy managed all the details. At every key step of the process he communicated with me to make sure he was doing the right things for us. He also stayed very close to the candidates that he recruited in order to build a close bond with them. I will definitely utilize Andy’s services again when I have another search and would highly recommend him to anyone requiring a top-notch recruiter.” — Layne Gobrogge, Director of Marketing and Product Development FRAM Filtration, Heavy Duty Division
“Andy and Grapevine operated in a very structured, efficient, and professional way. I was drawn to Grapevine looking for a firm that operated with integrity and openness and they did not disappoint.

This spoke highly about their integrity. I would highly recommend Andy and Grapevine to anyone looking to make a hire within their core fields and would definitely go back to them in the future.” — Jeff Lemonds, General Manager, Casappa Corporation
“Hiring a new member of your team is always a daunting task in my eyes. Hiring talented, engaged individuals is a key component to a company’s success, which makes the pressure to choose wisely even greater. Andy and his team at Grapevine helped so much in keeping the hiring process moving forward at all times. Hiring new employees is a task that can easily be put off, but Andy forces you to stay engaged and follow through. At the same time, his knowledge and experience in finding talent in our business is extremely helpful.” — Bill Horbett Jr., Big L Windows and Doors – Buffalo, NY
