Louie has consistently found talented engineers for me over the past 15 years. He has done an appropriate amount of prescreening of candidates to reduce the number of interviews. Plan to continue using his company to fill our last EE position.

Sr Project Manager at Bridgestone

I have worked with Louie Smith for the past 12 years.   He  has consistently filled our engineering positions in a timely manner with  help of his national network of engineering recruiters. He is a hands-on recruiter that stays with the process step by step.   Value-add service like coming to the plant and meeting with hiring managers during the search and following up with employee’s post-placement are excellent services.  Louie’s integrity is rock-solid where I don’t have to worry about him re-recruiting my employees.

I have worked with Louie Smith for the past 19 years. He has been instrumental in helping me improve the overall talent pool and his national network of recruiters has consistently provided top candidates. Louie’s background and manufacturing knowledge brings immediate creditability when working with the hiring managers. The two things that have impressed me the most over the years about Louie are his integrity and the talented candidates. You can be assured when he submits a candidate that the candidate will exceed the requirements set forth at the beginning of the search. I highly recommend Louie Smith as a business partner / recruiter for your organization!

From Candidates:

I messaged Louie through LinkedIn about a job that he had posted. He called me later that day and during a brief conversation assessed that the position was too far from my residence to commute. The next morning he contacted me with a company that was 10 minutes from my house, a company that I had not previously considered viable. We talked in detail about the position, my job specific requirements, and within 48 hours he had procured me an interview. I am ecstatic to say that after eight weeks, I couldn’t be happier with my position and employer.

Louie was professional, responsive, and detailed. His thoroughness ensured that both myself and my employer‘s needs were aptly filled. If you are looking for a job in the Upstate of South Carolina, or an employer looking to fill a niche position, I would highly recommend that you seek out Louie and his vast network of contacts.

When I think about the positive experience moving my family and starting my career at BorgWarner, I remember how much Louie was an integral part in making it happen. From our first phone call, I became aware of his knowledge in the recruiting field. He’s been in the industry for many years and has formed good relationships with the companies he works with. Louie consistently provided me updates throughout the job search and interview process and feedback. Since this position involved relocation, we talked about family, and I saw how those values were part of his profession. I would recommend Louie, not only to co-workers, but family and friends as well.

Well, Mr. Louie Smith was excellent throughout my hiring process with Borg Warner! He stayed in constant touch with me through out the hiring process and our communication was flawless. I could easily talk to him…our conversations flowed naturally. It was an honor to have met such an upbeat, positive guy like Louie. He makes things happen, and I am very honored that he chose me to push in front of Borg Warner. I honestly haven’t meet a recruiter like him…and I have talked to many recruiters!
