we don’t like to brag…
but we are more than happy to let our candidates and clients do the talking!
I had been on the hunt for the right job for about 6 months before I was introduced to the Help Co. I came in and interviewed with Naomi and owner Claudia who were very attentive to my needs/requirements for my new prospective job. After a month of working with The Help Co. they were able to find me a job with an A List prolific entertainment professional, a job that doesn’t come around very often I might add. What I enjoyed most with working with them is they did not push me to interview for anything I did not believe was right for me or did not meet my salary requirements. They were so helpful every step of the way, great with follow-up to both employers and myself after interviews during the interview process. I felt like they worked every day to help me get my job with a smile on their face. They were able to negotiate my salary more than I had anticipated and were such a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough about these ladies!
I had a great experience with The Help Company thus far. Not only was meeting with the staff a delight but the first and only job I interviewed for and ended up getting was a position I have dreamed about. It ended up being a perfect fit and the entire process was pretty fast and easy. They truly heard my goals and desires and helped me land the exact job I have always wanted. I have since referred friends to this service because I have had nothing but good things to say about my time with The Help Company and know they are capable of providing this enjoyable experience again.
Hey Claudia, you are the best agency EVER!!!!!! So voted. I know you’d place me, if I were free, in an amazing post. Naomi is adorable and I love you Claudia!
The Help Company made my search for a nanny position easy! I have a Nanny job that I absolutely love and I can’t thank enough to Melissa for finding me such a wonderful family. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable, and I knew I could trust her to match me up with a family that I would mesh well with. Within a few days of meeting Melissa she connected me with a wonderful family, and within a week, I was offered the position! Instead of feeling like I was taking up her precious time, she made me feel like a Professional Nanny who she cared for and wanted to take care of personally. Even though I think Melissa gives me preferential treatment, I have a feeling that’s how all of her families and nannies feel. In the future I will definitely recommend The Help Company to both nannies and families searching for a nanny!
While searching for a job, I was working with two of the larger nanny agencies in San Francisco. I found that there was not nearly as much one to one communication with these agencies, and I felt like just another candidate that would get forwarded general job descriptions. Melissa ensured that I not only find a job that fits my requirements and needs, but a family that I knew I could stay with for a long time. I felt like the process was very personal, which is so important due to the uniquely personal nature of being a nanny. The job specifications were very thorough, and the contract was clear and professional; this helped me leave my previous job with no worries or fears. The placement was clearly a match, because I am extremely happy in my current position and see myself staying with them for a long time to come.
I had heard many stories of agencies being hard to work with and never really keeping your best interests in mind: mostly that agencies benefitted quite nicely from the hard work that YOU put in, while you would be paying a portion of your salary to them. I decided to try it out though, because I like to make my own judgments. Right off the bat, I was MORE than pleasantly surprised that Melissa Jensen, my agent, really cared about the client she was hiring for, but also really cared that the person she would ultimately hire for the position would be happy and have all of their needs met. Melissa made it clear that she would be around whenever I needed her should I have any questions about my interview. She gave me wonderful advice on how to present myself in the interview, and what type of questions to ask. I really think her suggestions helped me to get the job….it was offered to me straight away! Not only did I have a very generous salary negotiated for me, but also a contract drawn up to ultimately protect me and my interests, by the Help Company. Melissa, and The Help Company, helped me take the next step in my career in the private service sector. Because of Melissa and The Help Company, I am PROUD of my job and have gotten very good in my field. Melissa and The Help Company taught me how important it is for me to take pride in my work….this making me a better employee for my wonderful boss. It’s also very important to note, that when working with the Help Company, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY THEM A FEE! This sets aside the Help Company from ANY OTHER private service agencies If you ask me, you would be a FOOL not to give The Help Company a try.
We can not recommend the Help Company more highly. Our experience with them was fantastic in every way. Not only did they find us the best nanny who we love and is a perfect fit for our family, but during the selection process, they listened to us and continually pruned and updated their selections based on our feedback. They understood our needs completely. They sent us lovely and qualified candidates. They were patient and understanding; we never felt like our pickiness annoyed or frustrated them. In fact, they took the decision making process as seriously as we did. The staff at the Help Company is kind and attentive, always available by phone or email, and always there with words of wisdom. We are so happy with our nanny and we hope we don’t have to use The Help Company for a long time (if ever), but we feel good knowing if we ever did need to find someone else, they’d be there to help us do it.
The Help Company was absolutely wonderful! I met with a few agencies prior to meeting with The Help Company, but no other agency was as helpful and responsive. They truly care about finding the perfect match for their clients. I highly recommend their services.
I am so thankful for The Help Company. Claudia and all the ladies in the office are such a pleasure to work with. It just takes one meeting with them to see how much they love what they do. They genuinely care about the client and the candidate and that is so important to me. When I called their Brentwood office and spoke with Naomi, I had a meeting setup right away with her for that week. I really appreciated that she took her time with me to find out exactly what I was looking for and what would be important to me in my next personal assistant position. Naomi also took her time talking with me about a job they had at that time that she thought I could be a great fit. It was so helpful to be able to ask all my questions and get very informative answers. Within ten minutes of leaving their office, I had my first interview setup. Naomi was so helpful during the whole interview process. The communication was always very easy and clear and if I had a question, Naomi always got back to me right away. It meant the world to me to hear her excitement on the phone when she called to say I had been offered the job! I absolutely love The Help Company and I will forever be grateful to them for placing me in a job that I truly love and feel I am well suited for.
My experience with The Help Company has been flawless since day one. As soon as the first interview, I was sure I’d found a quality company to help me find a nanny job. Melissa’s demeanor was always professional yet never intimidating. She made her top priority finding not just a job for me but a job that would fulfill me and a family that would be a good fit. After signing a contract with my employer I assumed my interactions with The Help Company would be minimal but one year later, Melissa still continues to check in with me often to make sure all is well. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and confidently recommend this company to everyone.
The Help Company is a very credible and effective organization. As soon as I had my first interview with a family, I knew they were the right match. Naomi knew exactly what I wanted as well as the family expectations–she took into consideration other obligations, schedules and family dynamics that I desired. I am so thankful that I went through this company and highly recommend it for any family or nanny.
I really enjoyed working with the Help Company – they helped me find a great job in no time at all and offered me several amazing opportunities! Claudia and the gang there are always cheerful and full of insider information and tips on their clients, many whom they have long-standing relationships with. They are the greatest at what they do!
I have had the opportunity to work with the professional staff at the Help Company for over 5 years, as they have helped me fill various staffing needs for my home – mostly childcare. In every instance, I have had an outstanding experience. I feel like the Help Company takes the time and puts in the extra effort to ensure that my time is and efforts are well-spent, referring only highly-qualified, thoroughly-screened candidates to me for an interview. Throughout the hiring process, I feel like I am supported with prompt feedback to any questions or concerns I may have. Even after I have secured a candidate for a job, the Help Company has stayed in touch and made themselves immediately available to me for any follow-up questions, needs or changing circumstances. And by the way, I have had many changing circumstances -some “great fits” moved on for various reasons… but with no fault in the Help Company’s judgment or placement. Finding the right person to work in one’s home, with their most precious and valuable treasures – their family -is a very personal and delicate process. Claudia and her team do a remarkable job. I recommend the Help Company to everyone I know, and will feel blessed to have them as my go-to place for all homecare needs.
I’m so thankful to The Help Company for finding my dream job. The guidance and support I was given led me to winning the Nanny job lottery after a 27 year career! I love my wonderful family and my new life in California!
Seven years ago when my twin boys were 3 and my daughter 5 I turned to The Help Company for their expert assistance in identifying the best candidate for a child care position. We had previously hired a loving, kind and wonderful housekeeper from The Help Company and were so happy with the way she fit into our family I didn’t have a moment’s hesitation about who to call for this new and extremely vital position. Claudia was so adept at zeroing in on the exact skill set we needed and sent us a fabulous young lady who we hired immediately. Over the years her position has subtly changed with the needs of our children and I am happy to say that seven years later she is still a beloved and valuable member of our family and an integral part of our children’s day-to-day activities. Thank you Claudia!!
First of all, Claudia was divine from the start. She listened & absorbed everything I said in the beginning & remembered it. She had an amazing gift for finding the right candidate for us to hire. She matched us perfectly & we have been so grateful.
We have had a relationship with The Help Company for almost 24 years. During that time, they have provided us with nannies, house managers, housekeepers, chefs, and care-people for elderly relatives. They always listen well, taking time to understand our needs. They thoroughly vet the people to whom they introduce us. As a result, they invariably arrive at an excellent match. And they remain in touch after the placement, checking to make sure that all is well, and prepared to intervene if any issues arise. Claudia and her staff are well-informed, caring, and discreet. We trust them absolutely and recommend them enthusiastically.
Meeting Claudia immediately made me excited about my job search. She was so different than the other recruiters I met who just wanted to place me right away, and didn’t necessarily care about what I wanted or where I’d be the happiest. Claudia and The Help Company really take the time to get to know you and thoroughly think about who you would be the best match with. They recognize what you have to offer and who would value it the most. What’s unique about them is they truly care for both the client and the candidate and don’t try to force anything if it’s not the perfect fit. They gave me opportunities for dream jobs, and I can see why A-listers and top executives would seek their advice and candidates as they truly care about longevity and people’s happiness. The career advice and immense support they gave me was almost like they were my family and not an agency. I feel lucky that I got my foot in the door as they only work with the best!
