“We hired Action Recruiting January of this year - by March we hired a key person for our organization. He has made a positive impact from day one. He has reviewed our business model and processes and implemented some fundamental changes that have amped up our organization and our bottom line.”
“Jan does an incredible job of lining up the right person with the right company. Because of Jan's help, our company is on its way to becoming an exceptional one. We will use her company in the future.”
“Jan has been a great resource for our company to help make some of the best key hires over the last 10 years. She has done an excellent job sourcing everyone from frontline staff members to highly skilled controllers.”
“Anytime we have a position to fill Jan has sent us multiple quality candidates and has had impeccable follow up with both the candidate and us. She is able to manage multiple open postings with ease and help keep us on track.”
“Jan has truly been a key asset for us and our company would not be as successful today without the team members she’s placed with us.”
“I am so grateful for the way Jan helped me put my business back on track through her assistance in hiring our new Sales Manager.
“When I first spoke with Jan, I was in a rough spot after going through a terrible former employee who put my business at risk. I was seeking a new sales manager with no success. I was frustrated and was considering having to settle for the mediocre candidates I had found through my own searches.”
“While I had lowered my own expectations, Jan was there to help me find my best employee moving forward. She put me in touch with a few great candidates and helped to me finally land on the best possible fit for my dealership. I now happily have a sales manager that exceeded my expectations and have Jan entirely to thank. I recommend her wholeheartedly for anyone who is seeking help finding employees.”
"Our dealerships are located in markets with city populations of 100k to 250k and we are located about 250 to 345 miles outside of DFW. Since we started working with Jan, we’ve brought on board three service managers and three or four A- techs. Her people are doing well here and we will call her again when we need to fill the next spot!”
“I was lucky enough to connect with Jan Plessner while contemplating a career change. From our very first conversation, her enthusiasm for the powersports industry was contagious. Jan evaluated my existing skill set, recognized my passion for motorcycles and motivation for pursuing a career in the industry, and found an opportunity that was a perfect match.”
“A year ago, I began working as managing editor of a new original content initiative by RevZilla. It was my confidence in Jan's knowledge of the industry and her enthusiasm for the opportunity that led me to pursue the job and negotiate a working relationship that was quite different from what was originally envisioned but has been mutually beneficial. It would not have happened without her essential early involvement.”
“Jan was always a mentor and a strong leader, and eager to share her passion and experience to help others (like me) grow. Jan stands out in our industry for her commitment to supporting others and her deep enthusiasm for all things powersports.”
“Jan was amazing when helping me a few years ago. She is really great at putting people in the right position for success. Thanks Jan.”
“Jan is the most pleasant recruiter you can deal with. She found me an awesome position that has moved my career to a new level. A real life changing experience!”
