Amazing Company

Since I started working with Career Contacts, they've provided me with multiple temp jobs. Recently, I just landed a position with a company that I've been wanted to work with for some time all because of Career Contacts. The staff are thoughtful and intentional. They listen to your needs and ensure that they find the best employer for you! I would recommend Career Contacts to anyone who is looking for work or for employers looking to fill a position. You will not be disappointed!

Waste of time

I applied for a job listed by these guys for another company. They barely read my resume and ignored every email I sent them, opting to call me and leave phone messages that mirrored their email messages instead. It was all very automated and I could tell that they were just trying to get people interviews to look good for their client, regardless of qualifications. Anyway, over the phone I was told I definitely had the experience that made me eligible for a job they essentially advertised as entry-level, training on the job, production work. After travelling a very long way for this interview, I was told by their client that I did not have any of the qualifications required for this job and they were not sure why I had even applied. This was all down to Career Contacts failing to include any important details on their listing or asking the right questions over the phone. Do not use these guys as your recruitment company; they just want your business, not to get you work.

Helped me find my dream job!

I moved to Vancouver not long ago with a 2-year work visa. I didn't know where to begin with the job search but was able to quickly find work with the help of Career Contacts. They had a lot of different roles available and were extremely helpful in helping me with the job search. They helped me coordinate an interview with one of their Downtown clients and even helped prepare me for the interview. I am so happy in my new role and I can't thank them enough for helping me in the job search. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for work!

great team of smart recruiters

they were really great at determining what skills I had that worked for their clients. They have a diverse client base and treat their candidates well - even when they don't have work for them.

good people, great jobs

They always call me for relevant jobs with good salaries and always fight for me if I need a bit more. They have temp jobs and full time jobs so it's a good mix. Definitely recommend!

My only place to look for workers

Working with the team at Career Contacts has been easy, and smooth, in finding temporary workers for any special projects we have. I've had nothing but good experiences from all the office staff. They are friendly and helpful. The workers they provide are great, and hard working. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking for workers for placement.

I have 3 years working for Career Contacts.Me and my girlfriend are working here. Very helpful people and flexible shifts. At the time when I have done the interview my English was not so perfect and they gave me the opportunity to work in the same job I was doing back home. Thank you

Was always my first stop when looking for work.

Have dealt with Career Contacts for approx. 12 years as a temp worker, client and eventually direct employee. They offer a good selection of permanent and temporary positions, as well as, more personalized service than the larger competition. Reasonable wages for the positions held. The office has a good atmosphere and is centrally located. Company social gatherings are great (lunches, open houses, etc).

A wonderful company!

Career Contacts is a great company! As a new arrival to Canada I was able to go in and learn about the options available to me, get tips on interview practices, and ultimately land a job that I love! I highly recommend for all new arrivals and those looking for a change!
