Over the past 8 months, Kevin and I have worked together on my staffing needs for my team with P.F. Chang’s. Kevin took the time to find out what my needs and expectations are and only sends me the highest quality of management applicants. While I don’t know Kevin Kalstad on a personal level, I know he has done his research and is clearly aware of my ‘likes and dislikes. As a recruiter, this is a great way to do business and create long lasting professional relationships. Thanks Kevin!

Kevin Kalstad with Gecko Hospitality took all of the leg work out of identifying and pre-screening any potential candidates, allowing me to continue to focus on operations while looking for a new General Manager. We are located in a remote area and find it extremely difficult to find senior managers with the experience needed to run a facility of our volume. Within one month, Kevin had identified and put us in touch with a perfect fit for our organization. Should I have any future recruiting needs, I will not hesitate in contacting Kevin and the Gecko Hospitality organization.

Eric M.Lysaker

I have been in the hospitality industry for most of my professional career and have had the pleasure and misfortune of working with recruiters. I have recently found myself inheriting a market in NW Arkansas for a restaurant company called Slim Chickens and have had the extreme pleasure of working with Jacob Tarabar. He is extremely organized, thorough, professional while delivering me credible candidates that fit my needs. I started my search for talent with three recruiters and now solely work with Jacob for he has outperformed your competition with Herculean results. I am very loyal to those that support me in this fashion and have recently even sent Jacob friends that are out looking for their next employment. So simply put Jacob Rocks because he is making the recruitment and hiring portion of my job effortless.

Christine Hill

We began working with Victoria Epstein in 2010 in the Minnesota market. It is a market where additional recruiting support is absolutely needed. Victoria has had great success in the very short time we’ve worked together. Victoria is incredibly dedicated to listening, understanding not only the specifics of the opening but also our processes and has superb follow through & communication. As Victoria has gotten to know our company culture, she has also asked to proactively bring candidates into our recruiting process to see if a possible fit might exist and we have made a great hire or two in this way. Victoria also takes the time to build a solid relationship with me as a client. She is sensitive to what is happening in my work world and also wants to get to know me as a person. It has been a pleasure to work with her and hope we can continue to do so for a long time to come.

Dear Tom, I just want thank you for the good candidates you have been sending our way. I know I don’t communicate too often with Christina having your region but she is very impressed with the candidates that you are sending to us. Again, thank you and look forward to continuing the relationship.

Gecko Hospitality helped me fill a unique position in a fraction of the time it has previously taken. Chris used his extensive resources and knowledge of the hospitality industry to provide us with multiple, qualified applicants. Gecko saved me the time and frustration I usually encounter with the hiring process and filled the position within weeks.  I will definitely use them again.
