Some of the great things our employers have said about us!
Mac McClellan and Heidi Kay have been, by far, some of the best recruiters I have worked with when it comes to staffing agencies. I have worked with PediaStaff for over 5 years, and as a Assistant Director of Special Education in charge of recruiting and hiring therapists, PediaStaff continually provides quality candidates. Their support, willingness to listen, go the extra mile to fill my needs and response time is outstanding. I have appreciated the support given to candidates and I believe they feel very supported as well. PediaStaff has done a superior job for me and the district. We have a wonderful relationship that will continue in the future. I cannot say enough good things about Mac and Heidi. It has been wonderful to work with such outstanding professionals. You have my greatest respect. Thank you.
Loretta D., Asst. Director/Special Ed., Olympia, WA
Easter Seals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore has worked with Janell Marino of PediaStaff for several years. We have been delighted with the quality of the candidates she has supplied to us to interview and we have actually hired three therapists from PediaStaff. We have been very pleased with these hires…they are professional, well-trained, and have transitioned nicely into our team of therapists and early interventionists. There are two other factors besides quality that are important to us. PediaStaff’s placement fees are very reasonable compared to many placement agencies and their customer service is top notch.
G. Nobles, Easter Seals
I have worked with Shelli from PediaStaff for the past several years and wanted to let you know that she has been a pleasure to work with. The Therapists she has referred have been top notch and the flexibility in the contractual terms have been a fabulous. I would certainly recommend PediaStaff to my colleagues and have already referred some of them. I will continue to contact Shelli for future therapy needs.
T. Zelten, Dir., Winnebago Cnty SpEd Coop.
In all my 28 years as a coordinator I have never come across a more dedicated private group as Pediastaff who’s only goal was to please the district. I was in a major dilemma this summer to find a SLP for our elementary summer school and Pediastaff came to my rescue. Not only was the position filled but the person was high quality and a perfect match for our system. Pediastaff is highly professional, courteous and understanding of a district’s needs. I would certainly call on them again when the need arises.” Thanks again for all you have done for Westbrook.
C. Bialicki, Student Svs Coord., Westbrook, SD
You people always save the day for me and this year is no exception with great people! Thank you for your service but most of all for assisting us to make a difference with our students.
L. Alford, Student Svs, Campbell County SD
We have used PediaStaff this school year to acquire a long-term substitute for an Occupational Therapist that we have out on child care leave starting in October to the end of the school year. PediaStaff provided us with a possible therapist’s credentials who we then interviewed by phone. We were able to discuss job responsibilities and employment details a number of times with PediaStaff before finalizing the agreement and starting the therapist within our timeline. We have been extremely pleased with the occupational therapist and with the process for payment to PediaStaff. I will definitely use their services again when the need arises.
Kathy M., Dir. Special Svs., Shakopee PS
Our relationship with PediaStaff has been entirely positive. We have found our recruiter, Mac and PediaStaff to be very responsive, open to our district’s specific needs and clear in communication with both the professional being recruited and with the district administrator. Mac is personable and timely.
R. Yauchzee, Longview School District
Our Staffing Consultant, Shelli has been extremely efficient and effective in identifying and helping to coordinate interviews with a number of potential candidates. I was amazed at the number of SLP’s she was able to send my way and we are thrilled that we were able to offer one of them a job. We have a very close knit group and it’s so important that we keep that energy level up. Shelli understood that and sent us the perfect candidate. She also provided information on a very timely basis and was easily accessible if needed. This was a very positive experience and we appreciate all of her assistance.
Fran L., Director, Easter Seals South Texas
Janell Marino has been excellent to work with! Over the past year I feel she has truly worked hard to find us quality therapists to fulfill our need in the challenging field of pediatrics. We are currently in the process of transitioning 2 therapists over to direct hire as they have become such an asset to our team! In the beginning we were very hesitant to use a staffing agency (especially for pediatrics) but is has turned out to be a positive experience and we ended up finding some extremely talented staff!
K. Gardino, Therapy Unlimited
Our SLPA’s are all wonderful…I am very pleased with the quality of staff you provide and have recommended your services to several others
Phyllis C., Dir. of Special Instr., Grant County S
We are very happy with the therapist that we hired through PediaStaff. She is an asset to our pediatric occupational therapy practice. Janell at PediaStaff worked with us on many levels to help us find a therapist that would be the right fit for our clinic. We will be sure to use PediaStaff in the future when we are looking for more staff!
Martha Duarte Austin, OTR/L, WeeCare Occupational
Mac McClellan from PediaStaff is my hero. As a school district administrator responsible for hiring therapists in a competitive market, I have found PediaStaff to be a positive partner. The process is simple. I call Mac McClellan and explain my needs and he miraculously locates highly skilled candidates for me to interview, often by telephone. As a school administrator I was nervous about hiring staff over the telephone. However, every therapist has been superior. I have found PediaStaff therapists to be professional, excellent communicators, exemplary team members, independent workers, and above all outstanding with students and families. Once the therapist is in place they report that Mac McClellan gives his therapist superior service. The therapists feel supported and encouraged to do their best work for their students. For me, the highest compliment that I can give Mac McClellan and PediaStaff is that they are timely. If you call or email you have a response within the day and most of the time within the hour. Truly Mac and PediaStaff have a philosophy that they are available to provide a quality service to the customer. Thank you and your team has my greatest respect.
K. Schlosser, Special Svs., Vancouver PS
Shelli, our Staffing Consultant has done an incredible job for us. Her follow-up and follow-through is fantastic. We receive email confirmations for interviews and most importantly, she sends us the type of therapist that will become a part of our cohesive team. She is very attentive to us when we need additional staffing. Honestly, I can’t say enough good about her. If you are worried about client service, look somewhere else because we have tons of other agencies that call us and we only use PediaStaff.
B. Burley, President, Helling Children’s Center
I have been very pleased with the service Aldine has received from PediasStaff and our Staffing Consultant, Kary. With the SLPs that you have recruited for us over the past few years, I don’t have to go on summer vacation and worry that when I come back the candidates have gone somewhere else. That happens more times than I can say. You all have always been very good to us and we are very pleased with the contract hires as well as the former contractor we have had from PediaStaff that is joining our staff permanently. We are excited about him working directly for our district starting next year and appreciate the flexibility PediaStaff offered our district to make that happen.
J. Thompson, Special Ed Program Dir., Aldine ISD
Overall I’m very pleased with the services I’ve received from PediaStaff. When things go well we have no problems or complaints. What is more important to us is how your company supports the staff and district when things don’t well which will always happen at some point. When that happens Mac (our Staffing Consultant) has done a wonderful job of help me sort through the issues to reach a timely resolution.
B. Mossiman, Asst. Dir. Special Services Central
My experience with Pediastaff is that Shelli @ Pediastaff is very responsive to our needs and quickly and efficiently provides us with excellent candidates. I love working with her!
S. Arndt, Coordinator OT/PT, Palatine SD
PediaStaff has been very easy to work with this year. I’m pleased with the communication with members of the recruiting staff, like Shelli, and with the quality of the service students receive from the therapist you have placed with us.
L. Olsen, Director, Academy of Bioscience, MN
Thank you so much for the therapist you have placed with us last year and for this upcoming summer. She has been a joy to work with and is a very reliable Asst. SLP. I have no complaints. Kary, our PediaStaff recruiter has been wonderful as well. You have such a good group of people working for you all at PediaStaff.
T. Aggison, Lead SLP, Fort Bend SD
I have been very pleased with PediaStaff. Please keep in mind that I have dealt only with your recruiter, Shelli Katz. So, having said that, I have been very pleased with Shelli, and therefore pleased with PediaStaff. Shelli has been a valuable asset for us and is exceptional in her commitment she brings to her clients. She has worked tirelessly to recruit professionals that were a good “fit” for us, and really gives me the sense that she is on our side and that our opening is the most important one she has to fill at the time (although, I know this is not true- she is very busy, I’m sure). In fact, it was because of Shelli and our interaction that I recommended that our trade association, OPIRA, invite PediaStaff to affiliate with us. In short, I cannot speak highly enough of Shelli’s abilities.
R. Bell, Consolidated Rehab Therapies
Our district has been very pleased, particularly with Mac’s responsiveness. It’s nice to have quick turn-around with questions, information, and help. He’s done a great with that. I have absolutely no concerns with the service. I’m glad that we’ve been able to work together on finding someone that actually appears to be following all the way through to working for us!
N. Ames, Exec. Dir SpEd, Yakima Schools
We have been very happy with the staff that Pediastaff has placed with us. We have had three people over the last few years and all three are people that I would hire myself.
Jill R., Sr. Coordinator of Special Education Norfolk Public Schools
I have really appreciated working with Shelli and her efforts to assist our district with coverage for Speech Pathologist needs. The past two years have been extreme with regard to the SLP leaves/absences we have encountered and each time, Shelli has attempted to find us a suitable replacement. Overall, the staff that we have contracted through PediaStaff has been very competent and capable. In the one exception, Shelli worked with us to resolve the issues and was flexible in canceling the contract as we moved to direct-hire our own applicant.
John N. – OAS Asst SpEd Director
I have really enjoyed working w/ Vicki. She is sweet, not pushy, like recruiters from some of the other companies I have dealt with. She was willing to work w/ me and my needs and always quickly responded–even on weekends and after hours! That’s what really convinced me. I have already recommended your company to another colleague of mine.
Sharon Bertrand, OTR/L Owner, Helping Hands Therapies
I am not a job seeker or an employer, but I just want to say your wonderful discussion group has provided me updated information on a variety of topics. I’m new to Linked in, just figuring out how best to use it. I am receiving a weekly summary of activity and EACH time, I have clicked to read several articles and learned new information. It’s been wonderful! I have been receiving PediaStaff weekly newsletters ~ 2years and have always find them informative. I feel lucky to have stumbled across your bulletins and enjoy them in both venues. Thanks for doing such a great job disseminating useful, clinical information.
A. Fox, SLP
Thank you for the opportunity to tell you about our experience with PediaStaff. The candidates that we have hired from PediaStaff are quality candidates. Vicki, our staffing consultant has been very diligent in finding the candidates she knows we are interested in looking at and has always executed our interviewing process to our specifications. I can honestly say that working with PediaStaff has been a good experience for us thus far and I sincerely feel that Vicki has become a part of our team.
C. Sierra Sanchez, Magnolia Medical Group
I don’t prefer to contract services, and hoped that I wouldn’t have to this year, but if I have to contract, PediaStaff is my first choice. You do a great job and as yet, have not sent me anything but good people.
G. Brown, Special Ed Dir., Berkeley County Schools
We have been extremely pleased with the services we have received from PediaStaff. Shelli is always so friendly and helpful; and her response time is amazing! I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience working with your company!
Karla B., Special Ed Director, Rochester Public Schools
