Reviews and Testimonials

HR Director

Client: Manufacturing Company

“I have been working with Nelson Connects for many years now. Their team is an amazing group of talented individuals that know my industry and what type of people I’m looking for. They have always gone above and beyond to provide excellent service. I value their input and enjoy working with the whole team!”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics

“Had barely come to town as a last minute ditch effort for a pivot in life. Found myself at the front door of Nelson Connects speaking with a kind soul (Aimee ), who pointed me in a new direction in which I’ve never seen or heard of before in my life. Months into the project I had a difficult time in my personal life and was in complete amazement when my recruiter went above and beyond to make sure everything will be just fine. I’ve been loving every minute at my new job and hopeful it turns into a career soon.”

Human Resources Professional

Client: Food Manufacturing Company

“I wanted to let you know how great and wonderful Mary and the Nelson Connects team are and have been to work with! The teamwork and relationship I’ve built with them for almost the past year has been exceptional. They respond to me timely and are always on top of their game!
I appreciate all their hard work in getting our baking team staffed and all the great candidates they have assisted on bringing on to my team and being able to hire them on permanently/directly afterwards. I appreciate the dedication, time and effort they put forth in providing us with our staffing needs. They go above and beyond and have been a joy to work with. Again, a BIG thank you to Mary and the rest of your team (including Nicole) on this partnership! I look forward to many more years of working with you all. Thank you!”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics

“Wanted to take a minute to say how much I appreciate working with the Nelson Connects Santa Rosa team! I am retired but still like to work projects so they have put me on multiple assignments at different client sites, they know exactly which projects will work for me. This team is always kind and professional. I also appreciate how detailed they are with providing me all of the information I need for each project I am going to. I highly recommend working with Nelson Connects!”

General Manager

Client: Materials Manufacturing Company

“Nelson Connects, our business partner, has proven to be the most effective source to cover our needs regarding temporary employees.

A quick phone call, e-mail, or text is enough to have the Nelson Connects team send people either to be interviewed or already pre-filtered candidates to start as machine operators or clean room employees.

We have also hired summer interns though Nelson Connects, which allows us to cover peaks of demand as well as special tasks and short-term projects.

Our company and Nelson Connects are both happy to see temporary employees becoming long-term employees.”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics

“Quiero agradecer a Nelson Connects por ayudarme a conseguir trabajo, en especial a Aimee que con su gratitud sabiendo que mi inglés no es bueno siempre trató  de hacerme sentirme bien, no solo es una empleadora, sabe escuchar, aconseja y eso me motiva. Desde ya muchas gracias por todo.

I want to thank Nelson Connects for helping me find a job, especially Aimee because my English is not good and she is always trying to make me feel good, not only as an employee. She knows how to listen, she advises and motivates me. I am very grateful.”

Talent Acquisition Specialist

Client: Glass Manufacturing Company

“In the short time I have been working with Matt and Nelson Connects, I have developed a great working relationship. Matt is very knowledgeable and is very invested in procuring the right candidates for us. He follows up and asks for feedback on all candidates he presents. He has successfully found two great candidates for two different positions for the company. I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Matt.”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics

“I have been with Nelson Connects for many years and it has been a great way for me to obtain work at different companies. I am currently working at one of those companies for over a year. I am very thankful of all the work opportunities that Nelson Connects has provided me with. It’s being always a nice experience interacting with Nelson Connects team.”

VP of Human Resources

Client: Automotive Glass Distributor

“Matt has been a valuable partner in helping us find rock stars that we have added to our team! He takes the time to understand the qualifications of our positions and our company culture. Not only did Matt vet out candidates, he also found qualified, dynamic people for us to hire in two different departments – Human Resources and Sales. His candidates have hit the ground running and made a positive impact on our business.”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics (Executive Search)

“I have had the opportunity to work with Matt while pursuing an Account Manager position. After an initial interview, Matt acted as a great liaison between me and the hiring company. Through the interview process to the final offer, he constantly kept me updated. I highly recommend his service.”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics (Executive Search)

“I was very pleased with Matt and his attention to detail. He was straight to the point, very knowledgeable, and patient. I have never experienced such service like the one he provided to me in a time of need. Thank you so much Matt, for building a connection and helping me find a new place to expand my career and experience.”


Candidate: Manufacturing & Logistics (Executive Search)

“Being suddenly unemployed can be a tough experience. As a husband with two young children, the thought of being unemployed after a massive layoff  made me think of long, stressful days searching for the next opportunity. 

But Matt at Nelson Connects helped me along my journey. Matt was awesome with communication  and gave me confidence a new job was on the horizon. Matt did great prepping me with interview questions and techniques to crush the process. Once it came to the negotiation after an initial job offer, Matt did great communicating with me for what I was looking for and made me feel like I had my own agent working for me on my next big deal. Once done, Matt also checked in after my first week to assure the job was the right fit. 

Overall, working with the Nelson Connects team and Matt in particular was a fantastic experience.”

VP of Human Resources

When you call into them, they know you. They know what our standards are, and they know that quality always comes first.  I feel that they’re always looking out for our best interests. They want to make sure it’s a good fit and I think their customer services is outstanding."
