about American Recruiters
Jessie Cerminaro, Franchisee
The decision to become an American Recruiters Franchise Partner was easily the best of my professional career. I had already been in the recruiting industry for 17 years, most of which were spent in a large office environment. When I finally made the decision to go into business on my own, the American Recruiters team offered me enormous support and training, and the technology and infrastructure found in a large office environment. These critical systems and corporate infrastructure, that were available on Day 1, would have been impossible for me to replicate on my own. In addition, the American Recruiters, “team” approach to successful business, affords me the opportunity to interact, work and consult with other franchisees and members of the AR family on a daily basis. I am in business for myself, but “I’m never alone”. It’s been the key to the success of my business.
Frank Carieri, Franchisee
I joined American Recruiters in 1999 and started my recruitment career in the pharmacy recruitment division. I grew quickly within the busy company and became the Pharmacy division manager. In 2007 I had the opportunity to open my own franchise and Gino Scialdone, the corporate president, was extremely helpful in the process and made the transition an easy one. Every day since then, Gino and a number of others at the corporate office have always been there to assist me or guide me when needed. Their dedication to my success was more than I could have asked for. The interaction with the corporate office and the other franchise owners, truly makes me feel like I’ve joined a family organization that cares about each other and, the success of each one of us.
Gino and the whole corporate team are dedicated to staying on top of trends and technology to make sure we all have the opportunity and tools to beBetter! Their support and guidance, confirms for me every day, that I couldn’t have joined a more professional or committed organization. I would recommend American Recruiters to anyone looking to open a franchise in the recruitment industry. Give Gino a call.
Craig Wilson, Franchisee
I was president and CEO of a US subsidiary of a German company. The company closed, and I had a one-year severance. I looked high and low to try to buy a business, and found a recruiter whom I had worked with at American Recruiters, Carl Carieri. I was determined NOT to work for anyone ever again. Carl asked if I would like to consult with American Recruiters because he and his business partner, Gino Scialdone, were planning to franchise their business. I flew down to meet them and found the business was vibrant, and franchising could be a great opportunity for them to leverage their in-house services. I literally helped them put together a strategy for franchising. At the conclusion of my project, Carl asked me if I was interested in being the first American Recruiters franchisee. He and Gino suggested that I should ask the market what it thought. The following month I attended a major tradeshow and asked several companies if they would need my services to find them talent. Likewise, several individuals asked me to help them find new opportunities. Truly, I walked out of the tradeshow with dozens of searches AND candidates. I signed up with American Recruiters and never looked back. I own my business, and no customer comprises more than 5% of my business. Gino Scialdone and I have been close friends ever since, and his support for my company is phenomenal. No one ever goes to college thinking that they will someday be a recruiter. Yet, for the right individual, it is an amazing opportunity to own your own company, make great income, and make a difference in hundreds of people’s lives—both candidates and clients.
Ina Phillip, Franchisee
If you have a desire to be better, an American Recruiters Franchise is a good option.
Having joined American Recruiters as the 2nd Franchise office in November of 1999, I have experienced many twists and turns in the recruitment industry. The one thing that has remained steady is my relationship with American Recruiters.
American Recruiters and the possibility of a franchise was initially recommended to me by a business colleague. Respecting her referral, I decided to check in to the opportunity. I spoke with Gino Scialdone and was invited to spend time with the team at the corporate offices to observe and see if the potential was there for the right fit. I was immediately impressed by the culture built around working together as a cohesive team. Transparency, collaboration and teamwork are very important to me; and although I had not recruited before, I felt that my sales background, people skills and business acumen would be a good match. I made the decision to join the American Recruiters team and have not looked back.
American Recruiters has continued to successfully evolve in this ever changing industry by staying ahead of the curve. We continue to invest in technology, and remain focused on branding our customer satisfaction centered services with a specialization in Nurse Leadership. #beBetter
Juli Van Der Meulen, Margate, FL Franchisee
By becoming an American Recruiters franchise owner I was able to vastly increase my recruiting business by expanding my client and candidate database, as well as become a part of a team of highly skilled and experienced recruiters that are currently at the top of their field. Working together with these skilled and highly motivated recruiters opens many new doors and provides a wealth of business opportunities, not only to me but to the other franchisees as well.
Being an American Recruiters franchise owner has allowed me to grow my recruiting business and take it to the next level. Gino Scialdone, the driving force behind American Recruiters, brings a wealth of business knowledge, cutting-edge technology, and recruiting resources, and is dedicated to each franchisee’s success! -Juli Van Der Meulen, Franchise Owner
The Best Recruiter I’ve Ever Worked With: Frank Carieri
Frank, you are the best recruiter that I have ever worked with. You helped me get a great job with a great company, and in a location where I wanted to move into. From our initial contact until my successful placement, you were there providing exceptional and professional service, and consistent support through the whole process. You went above and beyond to present my credentials to my new employer. You are reliable, considerate and you genuinely care about your clients. I’m very grateful for having you as my recruiter. I will recommend you to my friends and colleagues. Thank you, again. -Farid N.
Ina Phillip is a top rated professional. I enjoyed her mentoring and guidance through my placement. She is truly dedicated to her craft. I am thankful for the connection that we have established. I would recommend Ina to anyone who needs mentoring to get to the next level in your career and life. It has been a pleasure working with you. Keep up the great work!!
-J Daugherty, Acute Care Candidate
Thank You Lilliana
I would like to recognize a very special individual in your organization as well as extend a big “Thank You” to her as well.
Lilliana del Real has been an integral part of my professional life in the last couple of months. As she will tell you, I recently resigned my position as Director of Imaging here in Mississippi and she began working with me to find an acceptable, exciting new opportunity in New Mexico.
Lilliana was with me at every step of the recruiting process. She consistently coached me, encouraged me and continually communicated my skill sets to the HR Recruiter. She facilitated all aspects of the recruiting and interviewing process for me and continues to do so even after the facility had extended a very generous offer to me only two days ago.
I will tell you that I have worked with a number of recruiters in my past and none of them can stand up to the professionalism, energy and individual concern that Lilliana exhibits.
Thank you, American Recruiters for allowing Lilliana del Real to be my individual recruiter. As the saying goes: “Job well done Lilliana”!
Les Handlin, Director of Imaging
Foodservice and Industrial Candidates
I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Paul Rychlewski of American Recruiters. Throughout the duration of my career search Paul stood by my side in finding the perfect match to apply my experience and field of expertise. From the initial presentation to the final interview process American Recruiters made sure that I was fully prepared. I couldn’t be happier with my move.
Pharmacy Job Seeker (EVP/COO)
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Frank Carieri for the past 15 years. I’ve worked with Frank as both a customer and as a client. I’ve had the responsibility of finding experienced management talent to run my operations throughout the United States and Frank was always an invaluable resource. His experience, knowledge of the industry, extensive network and professionalism always made my job easier. Recently as a candidate, he presented me with an opportunity to join an excellent organization and I am very appreciative of his assistance. I would highly recommend Frank Carieri. -Pharmacy Executive VP/COO
Pharmacy Job Seeker
Frank has always done exactly as he’s promised. He always follows up and gets back to me with an update, no matter the outcome; unlike some other recruiters I’ve worked with in the past. Everyone wants good news, however, the ‘not knowing’ is always the hardest to deal with. Thank you, Frank, for all your hard work and professionalism. -Pharmacy Job Seeker
Senior Living Candidate
I had recently relocated from Kentucky to Texas and began my search for a position as an Administrator in the Ft Worth area. I began working with Dionne at American Recruiters, and she was always so professional and kind assisting with my job search. She assisted me with the job search from beginning to end and thanks to her assistance, I was able to secure a position that will afford me a great opportunity for growth and success. She is an exceptional recruiter who is very in tune with what a professional like myself was looking for. – Senior Living Job Seeker
Senior Living Candidate
I would like to express how satisfied I am with how well Sandra at American Recruiters, matched me with my current position. She knew exactly what the company was looking for, as well as how my qualifications and job requirements could fit their needs. Her ability to take all of the info into consideration made this transition a lot smoother. Sandra also maintained clear communication with me during the entire phase of my hiring process as well, and even checked in with me after my first 30 days on the new job. Thank you, Sandra, for all your hard work! -Senior Living Job Seeker
Acute Care Candidate
I want to thank American Recruiters again for your assistance in finding me a great position in Florida. Your vested interest, time and energy undoubtedly made this transition as efficient and streamlined as I think it could have possibly been. It was obvious right off the bat that your team was committed to finding me a position that was a great fit for me, rather than arbitrarily throwing me into interviews that were likely of no interest. Your propensity to be flexible with your time and guarantee to close the loop of communication made the chaos and complexities of relocation that much easier.
Again thank you for all of your help and I will most definitely recommend your services to others in the future. – Acute Care Job Seeker
Acute Care Candidate
A job search can be very stressful, particularly when dealing with the black hole of online applications and automated job board responses. That’s why I chose to work with the American Recruiters team. From the very first call, I knew I was in great hands. My executive recruiter/franchise owner, Juli Van Der Meulen, was courteous, professional and responsive to my preferences and career aspirations. She was over the top in the delivery of excellent service and kept me informed in every step of the job opportunity process. I found her confidence coaching to be extremely helpful in prepping for interviews. Juli provided ample insights into the organization’s culture and expectations. There were no surprises!
When I received my offer, Juli was the first in line to congratulate me and a week into my new position, she called to check in and see how things were going. I just can’t say enough about this search firm and will definitely recommend that my colleagues consider the American Medical Recruiters team for their personal or company placement needs. -Acute Care Job Seeker
HR Director Gives Kudos
Timothy E., Vice President of Human Resources
I had the pleasure of working with Lilli during my five years as Human Resources Director at MountainView Regional Medical Center in Las Cruces, NM.
She is an absolutely first rate recruiter who knows her business and works extremely hard for the employer as well as the candidate. One of the many things that impressed me about her was the quality and competitiveness of the candidates that she presented. In my five year tenure, we hired about 10 of her candidates.
Lilli was very proactive in learning about the clients, their business and personnel needs. She supported and developed very good relationships with each of her candidates all of whom spoke very highly of her. Because of this, we were always pretty confident that any candidate that she referred would be qualified and a good fit for our organization.
The other thing that always impressed me about her was her follow up and follow through and her availability. I always hated to do so but there were often times when time was of the essence or the situation was rather urgent and I would have to call her after working hours. This didn’t seem to faze her at all and she always there for us.
If you are a healthcare executive, human resources professional or recruiter, then Lilli is someone you should call and get to know.
I am happy to recommend Lilli to anyone who has a need to hire healthcare professionals of all stripes.
Susan L., Senior Clinical Recruiter
Juli is one of the best recruiters I have had the fortune to work with. Juli found our team a very difficult-to-find, niche administrative nurse who was a perfect fit! We’ve since partnered with Juli to fill many of our positions and she has been very successful every time. She is able to accurately ascertain the requirements and soft skills necessary to ensure the right fit for our culture and organization.
I highly recommend Juli! -Susan L. Senior Clinical Recruiter
Laurie G., Regional Director of Employment Services
Juli was a key partner in recruiting hard-to-fill leadership positions for our Healthcare teams. She sourced outstanding talent for us across several disciplines, including perioperative leaders, patient-experience executive leaders, critical care nursing leaders and others. She communicated very proactively and was delightful to work with. -Laurie G., Regional Director of Employment Services
Frank W., Regional Manager
I have known Frank Carieri for over 15 years. He is the only recruiter I have ever felt comfortable with and fully trusted. There is never any pressure with Frank and he has always had my best interest in the forefront. I appreciate his integrity and honesty. Before an interview, Frank has always prepared me and given me invaluable insight. Frank knows everybody in the industry and most importantly is highly respected. Frank is great for immediate needs and as well as someone who is looking to further their own career. Without hesitation I would recommend his services. -Frank W., Regional Manager of Pharmacy Services
Lynn C., President/CEO
Trying to find professional healthcare workers, who are looking for a career, and not just a job, is why I started partnering with American Recruiters and Frank Carieri. I have worked with Frank for over 15 years, and he has always brought me the best and the brightest candidates for review. Frank has a wealth of knowledge of the Chronic Care industry, which translates into matching the right candidate with the right position. I particularly appreciate the upfront discussions I have with Frank when he is presenting a candidate to me. He informs me of their strengths and weaknesses, their experience, and their desire for the position. He continually keeps me informed of negotiations he is handling with the prospective employee, and at the end of the process, both candidate and employer feel they both won. The whole process is done professionally, courteously, and in a timely manner. I would recommend any pharmacist, nurse, or sales person, who wants to work in the long term care pharmacy field, to use American Recruiters as their first step in procuring a career. Any employer who is serious about getting top healthcare professionals, to advance their pharmacy business, should look no further than to American Recruiters and Frank Carieri. -Lynn C., President/CEO
Joseph M., Director of Talent Acquisition
Jessie at American Recruiters is a diligent, hardworking, straight forward recruitment professional. Her warm personality, hands on approach, ability to ask the right calibration questions and her strong sense of urgency make for a top-notch, professional recruiter who I wholeheartedly trust and whom I put a strong value in her opinions and recommendations. She is very client driven, customer service oriented, always providing extensive feedback and does an incredible job of understanding her client’s needs and translating them to finding the best candidates. Furthermore, she always comes with an infectious enthusiasm, well-rounded knowledge across many job profiles, and broad understanding of the healthcare arena. Jessie has been an amazing partner over the last four years and I look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come. Lastly, I am proud to say that she has not only been a valued top tier resource for my company but I am even prouder to call her a friend. -Joseph M., Acute Care Employer
Charlene H., MT(ASCP), MHA/MHR, Director of Laboratory
It has been my pleasure as both a candidate and as a client, to work with Lilliana del Real and American Recruiters. Having experienced several recruiters across the U.S., I found Lilliana to be the consummate professional: supportive, helpful, timely, and very comfortable to work with. From a candidate’s perspective, Lilliana and American Recruiters were always available for my questions and to discuss/review every step of the recruitment process including strategies for success. As a client, they were always readily available for questions about the applicant and they were also very thorough in the information they provided me on the application. I unconditionally recommend Lilliana and American Recruiters as a team, that either a candidate or client would find to be an able partner in their job/applicant search. -Charlene H., Acute Care Job Seeker & Employer
Sue F., Talent Acquisition Leader
Michelle Johnson with American Recruiters has been a great extension of my recruiting team, with regard to hard-to-fill openings where we didn’t have the band width to cold call into other organizations for our sourcing of employed candidates that match our needs for our current openings. She stands out from other recruiters in that she actively sources qualified employed candidates rather than peddling unemployed or discontented candidates that may have demonstrated experience, but not properly motivated for the transformational leadership skills we need in our openings. I’ve always appreciated Michelle’s understanding of my company’s needs versus just trying to place a candidate that is looking for a new job. She’s able to match both the client needs and the candidate needs in a balanced manner. She communicates in an appropriate manner that is effective and efficient. -Sue F., Talent Acquisition Leader
Melanie C., Acute Care Employer
Working with American Recruiters has been a wonderful experience! The efficient people and processes they have in place have created a trust and a great partnership which makes my job easier. The turnaround time in finding talent far exceeds my expectations and the presentation of their candidates is quick and thorough. The investment and commitment to the client relationship is critical and I feel the team at American Recruiters understands my goals and objectives. -Melanie C., Acute Care Employer
