“At this company, we do things efficiently and well”


“I would highly recommend AP Professionals for anyone looking for a new position. They were responsive, friendly and professional. They took the time to have me come into their offices to review my background and skills so they really understood what I was looking for. This allowed them to give me high-quality job prospects which shortened the whole process. I am extremely happy with my new job and I am thankful for Kim Bruno, Alanna Marriott and the entire AP Professionals team for assisting me with my job search.” -Accounting Job Seeker

“Everyone I’ve worked with at AP Professionals has been attentive, knowledgeable, responsive and very professional.  It’s always a pleasure to work with you!” -Engineering & Operations Client Company

“Our partnership with AP Professionals has made a huge impact on our business! They have been finding great candidates that we can put into key positions to help us scale and adapt to our customer’s needs.” -Engineering & Operations Client Company

“Everyone has been excellent! Dave, Melissa, Jenn, we really value our partnership with AP Professionals.” -Engineering & Operations Client Company

“I was blown away by the service and professionalism I experienced when working with Melissa, Jennifer, and Dave. The most positive experience I have had with a recruiting agency.” -Engineering & Operations Job Seeker

“Ann, Emmalyn, and Abbey were very responsive, pleasant, and helpful throughout the whole interviewing and hiring process. I have already recommended AP Professionals to many people. I have landed the perfect job for my personal career growth and salary expectations.” -Administrative Job Seeker

“Jennifer, Samantha, and Dave, I want to send a tremendous THANK YOU to all of you. I really appreciate the time you took to help me find such a good placement. From the initial interview to finally accepting an offer, you listened to my “wants” and turned them into a reality. My past week has been truly amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me! I can’t thank you enough for your support!!!” -Engineering & Operations Job Seeker

“Thank you for the help that you have extended while I was job hunting. I have passed your name along to others because you’re one of the few recruiters that actually did keep me in mind for future jobs and would always return phone calls. Most recruiters I have worked with are short-sighted and only focusing on filling the positions actively in front of them and not always very good at returning calls to candidates that might not fit the criteria for the jobs in front of them. You never did that to me and would take the time to get back to me and tell me if you didn’t have anything that was a good fit, and then when something that might be a good fit came up you called down the road. I really appreciated that, thanks again!” -Engineering & Operations Job Seeker

“When I found AP Professionals at a job fair, I kind of signed up on a whim. I have attempted to work with agencies in the past and you usually get lost in a stack of applications and never hear anything back, but AP followed up the next week and I had a great-fitting job I think … a couple weeks later? And it could have been sooner if I hadn’t been looking for something so specific. Thanks so much to all of you, I will most definitely be recommending you in the future.” -Administrative Job Seeker

“We have always been provided with qualified candidates to fill roles in our company. I believe the long term relationship contributes to that consistency.” -Accounting & Finance Client Company

“AP Professionals took the time to sit down with me and get an understanding of what type of job I was looking for. I worked with over 50 recruiters over the last few years and can tell you this is a rarity in the recruiting field. They were sincerely motivated to place me with an opportunity that I was looking for, not just fill their openings. The team maintained constant communication and worked with me through every step. They all shared a precise, thorough, and professional attitude throughout the entire process. In the end they got me a better offer than I was originally looking for. I just finished my first week and my new position and am very pleased with my new company. 10/10 would recommend AP to a friend.” -Engineering & Operations Job Seeker

“We filled a critical role for a new line of business that is being transferred to our Rochester location. The candidate has the right skill set and will make the business transition much easier. The experience with AP was tremendous! Jennifer has an outstanding team and they provided several excellent candidates for the positions we were looking to fill.” -Engineering & Operations Client Company

“Matt, Laurie, Nicole, and the whole team are hardworking, intelligent, and extremely resourceful professionals. They are the absolute best at what they do and any finance professionals looking for new opportunities are remiss by not reaching out to the AP team.” -Accounting & Finance Job Seeker

“100% would recommend to ANYONE especially recent graduates who may not really know what positions they qualify for. My experience was PHENOMENAL. No improvement needed. The team I had with AP was more than I could have ever hoped for. When I saw Emmalyn show up on my first day I truly felt like I had an amazing support system behind me.” -Administrative Job Seeker

“AP helped us grow our engineering team with a candidate who fits our culture. AP has really set the bar high. I have worked with other agencies and the service isn’t even close.” -Engineering & Operations Client Company

“From the very beginning, AP Professionals was tremendously helpful. In my first phone call AP had several opportunities for me to take a look at and see what I thought would be a fit…then during the applying/interview process they were extremely helpful in giving me job descriptions, information about the company, and how to ace the interview. I am grateful to have had the chance to work with AP Professionals, and am so happy at my new position! It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with a recruiting agencies.” -Accounting & Finance Job Seeker

“Laurie, Nicole, and Matt, thank you for all your help the past few weeks with my job search.  You have generously shared your expertise and experience with me, and I truly appreciate the support and the networking you have given me during this time.  I am excited to start [my new position] and forever grateful you helped to make it happen. The AP Professionals team is the BEST EVER!!!” -Accounting & Finance Job Seeker

“He is fitting in very well. I am pleased to say after two weeks, he has really grasped what we do here and has jumped right in. I was not expecting him to be this far so quickly; he is a breath of fresh air for me, and now I can really get things going here and start doing my own job. Thanks again for the help in finding him…and thank you very much for the cookies, I love Leo’s!” – Engineering & Operations Client Company

“Personally, there isn’t anything else this amazing wonder team could’ve done for me. Ann, Emmalyn, Abbey, and Alanna did absolutely EVERYTHING they could to get me into positions that were along my skill set with the highest amount of pay possible, and quickly! I am so blessed to have worked with all of these amazing women. I hope I never find myself in the position of looking for a job again, but should that ever happen, I’m going straight to these wonderful ladies for their assistance. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!” – Administrative Job Seeker

“I was very skeptical when I found out the job I applied for was through a temp agency. I decided to give it a shot. I’m so glad I did. AP has been wonderful with communication, diffusing any concerns I had about the process and more. They have gone above and beyond my expectations.” -Accounting & Finance Job Seeker

“My experience with AP Professionals has always been wonderful. I know if I ever need to reach out, someone will be readily available to assist. I will continue to recommend others to AP Professionals. I greatly appreciate the entire AP team! Thank you for everything!” – Administrative Job Seeker

“The entire process went very quickly. I couldn’t be more satisfied with how quickly the staff responded to my resume submission and their actions to help get me a position. I tried another agency a couple of years ago and got nowhere. I’m very glad I decided to work with AP Professionals.” – Human Resources Job Seeker

“I was not actively searching, but Laurie called me knowing my skill set and fit for the position she was assigned to fill – after placing me over three years ago at a similar company/position and seeing that I had left that role recently.” – Accounting & Finance Job Seeker
