"I want to express how impressed I am with Calgaryjobshop.ca. This is the first time we have used your website to post a position and it was a most effective and efficient experience.
Previously we had used newspapers to advertise but the expense and limited use of advertising space led me to explore the options offered by your website. And, you come highly recommended.
Hiring staff is always a lot of work and I hope we won't need to do it again soon; but if it happens we will be back.
Thank you for being there for us.
"So far, I have been happy with the results from posting two of my recruits on CalgaryJobShop.ca. I have just recently made an offer to a candidate for our Wiring Technician position and I hope to make another later next week. I have been in touch with one of your client representatives and will continue to use Calgaryjobshop.ca in my recruiting efforts.
"I have received applications from top quality
resumes within minutes of posting the job
requirements. I am very pleased with
CalgaryJobShop and will recommend this to
other business people as an immediate and
effective means of recruiting.

"With the employment market in Calgary right
now being the way it is I didn't expect to
see so many resumes come in.
I was overwhelmed by the response that I
got from our ad and CalgaryJobShop.ca
exceeding my expectations.
We are just starting to hold interviews
and hope to find the right candidate.
"We did receive a good response from
CalgaryJobShop. We will be using your services
in the future.
Thanks and have a great day!
"I have received numerous replies to our ad
on Calgary Job Shop. I have hired two of the
applicants, and am still receiving additional
resumes. I am very impressed with your
services and would not hesitate to use Calgary
Job Shop again.
"JobShop did the trick. We weren't expecting
to get much response as we are a very
specialized field (customizing/restoring cars)
but we found a young fellow that seems to
fit right in. JobShop was well worth it. We
will use JobShop again. Thank you for your
"So far I have two people working for me that applied through www.calgaryjobshop.ca
My experiences with you guys are great so far, very good communication and follow up.
No problems at all."
"It was our first experience with CalgaryJobShop and
the results were excellent. Would definitely
use it again!"
"We have been happy with trying it out - this
is our first time. We got a few potential
candidates and it was easy to review their
resume and track them. I would use deffinately
it again. Thanks,
"Our experience with your website was better
than expected. Within the first week we have
already hired two gentlemen that have the
qualifications that were needed and have
been a very welcomed part of our team here.
"Calgary Job Shop has been fantastic!!
We've never received such great responses!
"I was pleased with the ease of posting,
and the quantity of resumes received. Your
site is well known, the radio spots are great
and the costs were very reasonable. I will
definitely use your site again.
"Thank you very much for the email. We at
Coast Wholesale Appliances LP are very
satisfied with Calgary Job shop. We have
received a ton of resumes off your site
and hired many of them. We will be using
your site for most of our hiring needs.
"I was very pleased with the immediate
response to our advertisement. I have
received some excellent resumes from places
as far as Winnipeg! I have used our local
papers and the Calgary Sun in the past with
very little success and was amazed at the
response I received with Calgary Job Shop.
I will definitely use Calgary Job Shop
again. Thank you,
"I am very impressed getting an e-mail form
the president. Since I logged onto
CalgaryJobShop.ca, I had nothing but
extraordinary service with very helpful and
pleasant representative of your company.
I've recommend your service to everyone
I meet and I am extremely satisfied with
the results. It is also nice to be able
to use the tracking page to see how many
people have read our ad. It's also been
helpful to our IT group to see the number of
people that have go to our website from your
posting. Our website is new and this is something the GM's of our 6 dealerships like to track.
We will continue to use your services,
promote them to others .Improvements,
the only thing that would be helpful to me
from an employers stand point, is to have
templates of messages that you could send
the candidate through your service to say,
either "thanks we received your resume and we are reviewing","we'd like to set up an interview"
or 'thanks for your interest but your
skills/qualifications do not match our
needs". It would be very efficient if you
could just put a check mark in the box by
the candidate, pick your response, and send.
At the present, I am doing manual e-mails
and this is very time consuming. This is
a service I would pay for if provided.
Other than that as a suggestion, I am one
very satisfied customer. Look forward
to a continued relationship with your team.

received some excellent resumes from places as far as Winnipeg! I have used
our local papers and the Calgary Sun in the past with very little success
and was amazed at the response I received with Calgary Job Shop. I will
definitely use Calgary Job Shop again.
"I have successfully hired two people. I am still getting resumes which I
will keep for 3 months, we do have 5 clinics in Calgary, so this ad has
worked very well."
"I must say I was very impressed with this site.
I have been in recruitment for over 15 years in one way or another, and this
was the first time I used your site. I had awesome applicants and hired
someone who has been here for two weeks now. She is great and fits in with
our culture quite well. This was our 4th time recruiting for this position
and your site was the best method we used.
"It went very well, thanks. We received well over 100 resumes for the position, which is welcomed in this job market! We are making an offer today. I am impressed - we will be using your services again.
"We have been very pleased with the results we have obtained by using
your service. We have hired 3 employees from the many that have
responded via your service.
"We are pleased
with all the help we have received from www.CalgaryJobShop.ca and you are
exceeding our expectations. Thank you for your services!
"I absolutely love Job Shop. I found the perfect candidate and have recommended your service to all my associates. I will use Job Shop exclusively for all my staffing requirements. Great Job!
"Thank you for your email, I appreciate it. When we decided to use your
services we had no clue what we were about to invest into. We had heard
the ads on radio, and know we needed 2 employees immediately. We decided
to use your website(www.calgaryjobshop.ca) as a tool, to see if an
employee, that fit our program, would come along. As we were hiring for
a specific title, and the candidate would also need some knowledge of
the field, we weren't sure if we would be successful. Anyhow, to make a
long story short, we found 2 great employees, with the experience and
attitude, and we found them within 1 week. We received an abundance of
resumes, and a lot of great people applied.
Pleased to say, we WILL use your service in the future, if needed.
"We had not used an online method before for hiring an employee and it proved to work very well for us. In fact, much better that newspaper ads had in the past. Would definitely use your services in the future.
"Clearly we made an excellent choice in utilizing your services as we had
an overwhelming response from many very qualified candidates and
received around 20 applicants. Ultimately we interviewed 3 top prospects
and secured an awesome individual for our team, all in less than 30
We had previously tried a national web based job site and had very poor
results, caliber of candidate and interest from the provider, not to
mention it was more expensive.
Another division of our company has also used your site since our
initial success and they too have found ideal candidates and great
communication from your team.
"We have been a "Mom and Pop" company for over 10 years before we decided to
try your service and hire our first employee. The results were many times
better than I expected. We found a perfect candidate and hired her
immediately. Only regret is we didn't do this sooner. If we ever decide to
hire again, it will be Calgaryjobshop we turn to.
"I was very impressed and will use your service again.
"We have filled the position and was very satisfied with the response. I would definitely recommend the service to other potential subscribers.
"We are very pleased with the response we received from CalgaryJobShop.ca, and we will be putting another ad on today for a different position.
In the past we have only receive 10 resumes when using the papers, in the future all our hiring will be with CalgaryJobShop.ca.

Keep up the good work.
"My first experience with your service has been a very positive one and I will recommend it highly to others. I received a large number of resumes and found the registration and subsequent posting of my ad to be extremely easy and fast.
I'll definitely use www.CalgaryJobShop.ca again in the future.
"The recruitment has been successful, I have just hired a new person as a result of the ad placed on CalgaryJobShop.

"we had tried other more traditional routes to hire this time and were not getting any results, but I must admit that 13 minutes after posting or add
with "Job shop.ca" we got our first responent with a qualified resume. Resumes kept pouring in for the whole month. We conducted many interviews and it was difficult to narrow it down to a manageable number of qualified individuals. We have now succesfully hired a candidiate and we have at least 100 excess qualified applicant resumes should we need them in the future.
Truely a success story if I ever saw one.
Thanks for the services your company provides.
"Everything is going great, we have gotten a far greater response to our ad than we expected.
"I am most impressed with the CalgaryJobShop website. I have a final interview scheduled for this afternoon with the management group where they will be making an offer to our candidate. I was surprised at both the number and quality of resumes we received.
I was able to scan your resume database and found many good applicants there also. I have used other sites prior to be introduced to yours which allows me to compare the quality of service provided. Your site outshines others in the
...You can rest assured that I will utilize your services in the future. I will be calling Angie in the next few days to get some pricing on job packs, etc.
- Pricing, ease of use, quality of candidate availability, assurance there are no "stale" resumes, and of great importance to me from prior experience, the ability to manage our candidates online as well as to print clear copies of
resumes. I can assure you that I have had some horror stories to tell from trying to print other companies' resumes in the past such as printing off all the code and trying to find the information amidst all of that jargon, etc...
- Your site is very user friendly and I can't say enough about the great customer service and follow-up I received from Angie; this is a rarity these days!
Thank you for offerring such a great service Eric.
"This is the first time that we used your services to advertise for a position. The response to our ad has been quite overwhelming. We will certainly consider your site for future requirements.
"We have filled the two openings as of today. Your service was a great asset in finding the right people that we were looking for. We had the most responses to a job opening that I have ever seen. [Our Company] will recommend your service to anyone looking to hire new people.
"After weighing the options, I felt your system of recruiting was probably the best value. Two days into the ad I was sent a resume so perfect that I
thought one of my friends made it up as a joke. It was no joke. We found a great employee who had experience in a field that is difficult to find. The
cost of the ad went from "best value" to "insignificant" very quickly. I recommend your service to anyone who needs quality employees.
"We have filled the position with a person who responded to the ad on CalgaryJobShop.ca! I had quite a few responses and lots of resumes to review from the autoresponder feature. I feel we got value for our advertising dollar.
The service was great, as I received one phone call and a couple e-mails to see if I was happy with the service. I would encourage people to use your
service (and I would certainly use it again) as it is a fairly painless way to screen many potential employees.
"I have found that I have received the best candidates by far from your service over The Calgary Herald & the Calgary Sun.
We will be using you again when the need arises.
"We have been very pleased with the results from our usage of CalgaryJobShop.ca. We have received quite a few very decent resumes, and actually have met with one applicant who we think will fit just perfectly with our team.
Keep up the good work, and great customer service.
"We have been receiving on average two resumes
per day which has enabled us to hire four people. Obviously this system
works and is a marked improvement from the responses, or lack thereof, we were
receiving using the standard newspaper adds.
"This had been the first time that Federated Insurance had used your website for
advertising purposes and we were overwhelmed with responses - obviously this is the way to go! In fact, the first
resume arrived within half an hour of posting our ads! You could say that we were quite satisfied with the
quantity as well as the quality of respondents.
"I was satisfied with the experience. Several candidates who seemed suitable
came in for formal applications, I have selected a candidate who I believe
is suitable for the position.
I greatly enjoyed the ease of handling the info from candidates thanks to
the bulk of responses were electronic, the less paper, the better, and
when I wanted to recover some info about a person, I could easily do so.
I was also greatly impressed with the speed of the entire process. I had a
14 day notice from the person who vacated the position I needed to fill, and I
actually had a candidate for the position within 16 days. I had never ever
been able to fill a vacancy that quickly.
I received replys from candidates within one hour of the posting. I will
definitely use this medium again in the future."
"Our resume search went VERY well. I can safely say that your company has
exceeded all expectations. Michelle was very nice through the start up and all had been wonderful.
I must also say thank you for the great price on the ad. I am only able to
run ad's that are affordable, and your's really was. It was less than half
price of what other online job boards charges for an ad. I know it was a special offer
and I hope to see more in the future!"
HR Assistant, First Credit Union
"Your site has increased my knowledge about working with internet sites and has been very helpful for me.
I have a few job openings now to look into besides frying hambergers.
I also feel a lot more comfortable with using the internet which I have had but not used much.
Your layout is simple to fill out and use with little to no guess work and it works nicely. Thanks"
"I must say that I tried Monster.com before I used your service and I found your service far better.
Because of your ad, I had about 8 qualified people (after I short listed) that I interviewed and I recently hired one of them.
I think your website works very well at an affordable price. If I have another opening, I will not hesitate to post it with your company again."
Director of Sales, Russell A. Farrow Limited
"I have run 3 ads on your site. I can only say that I was truly amazed. The first ad received results in hours and I received about 40
responses. I hired a respondent from this group. The second ad had even a greater response about 109 responses and still
going. I hired a respondent from this group. These 2 ads were for office personnel. In the 40 years I have been hiring people I have never seen a response
like this. I have and will continue to tell everyone that this is by far the best way to fill many job positions."
"I was laid off. My job search was long and very depressing at times.
My unemployment was running out so I made arrangements to go back to school and make a major career change at age 26.
Trying not to give up hope (and trying to stay in the field that I love) I checked out your job listings and
applied to a position. 2 hours later I got a phone call to come in for an interview. Needless to say the interview went
extremely well (it lasted 2 and a half hours), and got a job offer to start [in two days].
Thank you so much for being another source for people to find meaningful employment."
"Am I pleased w/ the service i received???? YES!!!! & the results are OUTSTANDING!!!!!!
They say "never say NEVER?!?!?!?" I'M saying, (to misquote Sir Winston Churchill)
"NEVER, EVER AGAIN will I EVER!!!!!! put an ad in a newpaper for help wanted! I've been using your site since Dec. 1999 & have ALWAYS been successful!
(well, once there was this ONE moron!!) The quality of the responses is MUCH better (probably by a factor of at least 3x) than any newspaper ad & I don't have to deal w/ the usual "dolts" at some paper.
I'm very pleased & I sing the praises of your site every chance I get. Many thanks.
"I heard an ad on the radio a Tuesday. That night I looked at your site, and saw an
opening for an office assistant. The requirements were a match to my resume.... The company called me the next morning
asking when I could interview. We met that day. We spoke again Thursday, and they hired me Friday.
I'm delighted! More and better hours, and benefits after 90 days. It is exactly what I've been looking for for four years!"
Thanks for your service, and a word of encouragment to job seekers:
Never give up and don't sell yourself short!
"We love this site!!! Since placing our ad, we have had
132 hits on just one of our ads with a dozen interview submissions. That's
about a 10% return rate! We are thrilled! Thanks!"
"I have been thrilled with the results. I am a new recruiter for Fleet and
the hiring managers cannot believe how many candidates I am providing to them. I
am currently in discussions with the district managers to pursuade them to
continue the add for a pipeline of candidates for current and future openings."
"Just want to thank you for this service. Started looking for a job last week,
sent out six resumes via attachment, got three interviews, and was hired today! A really great job too.
This was so much faster than the newspapers, most of whom I haven't even heard from yet.
Wonderful way to job hunt! Keep it up!"
"Thank you for your obvious dedication to providing the best possible
customer service. So far we have found your company to be a valuable
alternative to print advertising. We have already hired a couple of new
employees who located us through your website and hope that this is just the
beginning. As a small company we greatly appreciate the lower cost of your
service as compared to newspaper classified ads."

"Just wanted to give my thanks to your service. I posted
my resume less than two weeks ago and landed the first job that I submitted
my resume for. I was wondering if you were looking for a freelance salesman,
because I've been pitching your service to everybody I know now! :) I hope
I DON'T have to use your service again, but if I do, I'll have great
William P. Murray
"I am very impressed with the service I have received from your company. This says nothing of how well your advertisement media has benefited our
efforts to contact quality applicants for the positions we had available in our company. I have been taking care of the employment advertisement
for our company for over 3 years now and have not found any media that has brought me the quantity let alone the quality of applicants that yours
has. Cost....well what can I say. Cost effective is an understatement to say the least. I have been so impressed by your services that I have placed several ads on your
other RegionalHelpWanted.com sites around the country as well as another ad on your site.
Thank you for the fax that opened the door to doing business with you."
"I just wanted to let you know that I just deleted my resume due to securing the position
I wanted. I wish I had know of this method of job search before and heartily recommend this to others. Not only did I get
the position I wanted but I received several other very interesting calls inviting me to consider positions they had open
as well. This is great and so much easier than "pounding the street" hoping to find something."
Thanks for everything,
"THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP, COULD I HELP YOU? I have been advertising on your website for a week now.
I am sooooo pleased. I have filled three positions with candidates responding to our posted advertisements. The resumes I am receiving are fabulous.
I even have Companies calling finding us about our services. I'm soooo excited."
Professional Profiles in Staffing
"It's actually been amazing! I was so flooded with responses during the first
two weeks that I ran my first ad that I cancelled it the third week, and I've hired someone who is starting tomorrow.
For my second ad, one for part-time teachers, I have also been surprised. At this time of year I rarely get applications
for teaching positions but, by using your web site, I'm getting around three a day."
Thanks for your help!
"I have really gotten a great response from the ad that I posted. I have not yet had a hire, but there a couple of people still in the works. You
all have been very helpful and very user-friendly. My recruiting area encompasses 8 other cities and I plan to use the RegionalHelpWanted.com sites in all
available cities. I have also sent out an email to fellow recruiters in other states to tell them about my success and told them to check it out!!"
"So far, your organization seems to be right on the mark! We had serveral excellent responses
from our first posting, and are now on our second. The system works well, easy to use, very affordable, and your introductory
ads on radio are excellent attention getters! We also use monster.com for some recruiting, and while they have great brand name
recognition, you have a more user friendly system. Good luck and I hope your service does well, for all our sakes!"
VP - Human Resources
Morgan Drive Away, Inc.
"I am very pleased with your service. You beat the pants off the local newspaper. The last time I sought an employee I went into the local
paper, spent a fortune and got NOBODY!! I NOW HAVE SIX QUALIFIED APPLICANTS TO CHOOSE FROM, AND I STILL HAVE THREE WEEKS LEFT TO RUN!! I am also
impressed with the frequency of your radio ads. Whenever I need an employee I will certainly use your service!!"
THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
President, Rainbow Jewelers
"I checked the ads on Monday, placed my resume, Tuesday got a call back and
had my first interview, Wednesday had my second interview and was offered a job. This is the best way to get a job ever.
I have encouraged all my friends and family to try it. I think that it's wonderful and I thank you for providing such a service.
"We have made a job offer and it has been accepted! The candidate viewed the ad using
your service. We will absolutely use your service in the future especially to recruit IS staff."
National Preferred Provider Network
"We were extremely pleased at the response from posting on your website. As a matter of fact, I'm forwarding your
website information to my HR partners in our Marketing organization. Hopefully, they will have some success as well."
"We have had wonderful success with this ad. So much better than an ad in the newspapers. I have informed our other managers
to consider using this method for future employment opportunities. The caliber and number of applicants exceeded our
expectations. And we have settled on a few contenders that will fit well within our organization."
"Although I have been offered a very good position with my "search,"
I would like to remain on your records, as who knows what's up?.... Thank you for your
consideration, caring, and concern.... I truly appreciate your efforts, and regardless
of my own results and/or successes, I intend to use your services for friends and family members."
"I have been posting job online with your service for 1 month now. To tell you the truth I have had a great response. I receive an email at least
once a day from someone responding to one of my ads. I find it very easy to post an ad and to view all resumes. I wanted to let you know that I am
pleased with your service and will continue posting jobs online."
Customer Service Manager
Adecco Employment Services
"I have not had a chance to view the ad yet, as I have been getting so many
resumes in response to it!!!... We will certainly use your service in the future. Thanks, again."
"I just placed a help wanted ad and wanted to tell you how easy and intuitive
I found your post an ad fill-in pages. Not only does your site look attractive without being too busy, but I was pleased to be able to view the
ad as it would appear immediately after putting in my information and then when I wanted to edit it, the back button actually worked! (so often sites
don't reload your information and you have to start all over again.) The ads look professional as laid out on the screen and then if it does the job
for us, the cost for placement is very reasonable."
