Testimonials from some of our successful candidates

“I am highly grateful to have made the decision to work with Orion Group this year. I’ll admit the experience so far is incredible and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in my network seeking the support of a recruitment company. One of their recruiters, Colin, initially reached out to me within 24 hours after applying for a remote position with AbbVie, a pharmaceutical company near Chicago, IL. He has been attentive and reliable and his consistent efforts facilitated me completing the submission/interview process within 1 week of applying. Preetha, the onboarding & compliance lead, was extremely helpful throughout the onboarding/clearance stage and I was able to complete all pre-employment requirements within 1 week thanks to her guidance. Their payroll & benefits administrator, Genevieve, was also very helpful in answering all of my questions. I have had no issues in receiving payments or benefits in a timely manner. I appreciate the team’s willingness to offer their assistance. There is nothing I would change about my experience and I would definitely consider working with Orion Group again in the future.”
"Matthew is so patient, goes above and beyond, very reliable and efficient but most importantly, KIND! Would recommend anytime!"

She has made this entire process smooth, pain free, and best of all exciting. I really can’t say enough good things about her and the job she has done. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to support her, she truly deserves it!!. We need more people like her in the work force now more than ever."

"Hello, I truly enjoyed my experience with Orion, but specifically with Danielle StGeorge, who was my recruiter! She is very good at her job and very thorough. She always sought answers for any questions I had, especially during the process of interviewing. My manager at AbbVie told me that I was the first Admin person ever hired into the Admin STAR program from Orion! I hope you all will have more candidates chosen. I will do my best to represent Orion in my work and professionalism, while working as a contractor at AbbVie. Thank you!"
"If you are looking for a new position, Rachael is a great recruiter to work with! She will work day in and day out to bring you opportunities that suit your professional needs. Rachael was highly responsive during my job search and kept an open dialogue with me. I found this to be very helpful as I was never wondering about the status of potential positions as Rachael made sure to keep me well informed. She also negotiated on my behalf to ensure I would get the best pay possible. Not only did she help me find a job, but she also continued to check in with me during my first month to make sure everything went smoothly during my onboarding time. Whenever I had any professional questions Rachael was there to offer solid advice. I cannot recommend a better recruiter than Rachael, she will find you the right job and take expert care of you along the way and throughout!"

Rachael helped me find my first job ever and I cannot be happier with my position. She took the time to see the world through my eyes and helped me gain confidence in my abilities. I could not have made it into my company without her and I appreciate her teaching me how to begin my career."
