Great Experience with the Print & Packaging Specialist
Production Manager (Applicant) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 August 2018
Immediately after I submitted my resume, I was contacted by the "Specialist for Media, Print, and Packaging”. I was invited to meet where we would be acquainted on a personal level and soon after we would discuss employment options. My specialist understood that what I needed was not just a job but one that provided me with a good salary and a good fit. Over the course of a few months I had a number of interviews. Despite my abilities to not secure a position, my specialist continued to invest time and energy in me and provide encouragement. My specialist never gave up on me. He believed in me. Eventually, he found the right fit for me and secured me a good job. I am extremely grateful for the patience, kindness and understanding this person provided. I appreciated also the professional coaching and honest feedback I received after each interview. Mock interviews, prep-work before real interviews occurred were extremely helpful. So thank you. If I am ever in a position again requiring assistance, I will contact The Dean Group.

I’ve had an excellent experience with the Dean Group. Specifically the Print and Packaging Specialist presents great opportunities and provides a lot of support before and after each interview. Would recommend to friends and colleagues.
Invaluable resource for people in the printing industry.

Though I did not know it at first, the Dean Group has a recruiter who is incredibly connected to the network of print industry employers and professionals. At our first meeting, it was immediately apparent that he knew much more about the industry than the typical headhunter.
Within a few weeks I was placed in two very relevant interviews, one of which landed me a satisfying new job.

Overall they simply waste your time with interest and potential opportunities then suddenly communication is one sided...You asking what's going on. When I see the Dean Group listings, it's more a joke to even look into.
Temporary Worker (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 3 June 2018
They do not return your emails or calls! They post jobs that are not actually available....totally unprofessional staff when you walk into their kitchener location..i waited 40 mins to talk to someone while they were in the back talking about their weekend! They were passive and seemed like they did not really care. They waisted my time.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Kitchener-Waterloo, ON – 26 January 2018
They can't be bothered to take on any new personnel. Will not respond to emails or call you back as requested. Won't even acknowledge you. Very frustrating and unprofessional. I was warned by a number of people, but tried to use their services anyways in hopes of a different result. Don't even bother applying to their ads- they aren't actually trying to fill those positions (was hoping for an Admin role). Horrible experience.
Factory Worker (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 27 October 2017
Poor understanding on the part of Dean recruiters and account managers about the kinds of environments they place their workers in. I was placed at a factory in Guelph that ran aged heat treating equipment. This equipment which ran on 20,000 vdc was leaking puddles of coolant upon the floor where the operator was supposed to stand. When I explained to Dean staff my belief that this was an unsafe work environment and I no longer wanted to work there they were unconcerned with the situation and their representative simply ignored my complaints
Great ownership, ethical, smart and great balance of life
