What Our Candidates Are Saying


I worked with a few job recruiters in my time and had no luck. So when Mr. Franz contacted me I was a little skeptical, because of my previous encounters with others. Mr. Franz quickly showed me how he cared and how committed he was with finding the perfect fit for me. He asked many questions and gave me direct opinions and also gave me great encouragement. After an interview he would make sure he called me to grab feedback from me and used that towards grabbing feedback from the employer. Mr. Franz is a great man and he found me a career not a job and I am thankful to him . I would definitely recommend him and his company to all my friends and even strangers who are looking for employment.

First of all, I would like to thank you for your services. This was the first time that I have used this type of service in applying for a management position. The process was very rewarding as it seemed like you did most of the work and communication between myself and the employer. I really appreciated how you communicated to me the status of application and when I could be expecting a call from the employer. Very satisfied with the overall experience with your company. I would definitely tell others about my experience.

Thank you

Thank you for all the hard work you displayed in helping me find a Management Position with one of the largest restaurant chains in the industry.

From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew your company was the best choice for me to find a position and the company that would be the best fit for me.

Thank you for taking me through each and every interview step to ensure I was set up for success. You were excellent in acting as a direct contact between the company and myself, as well as making sure that all interviews fit my schedule. After each of my interviews you called me to let me know what the next step would be, and I appreciated that. I am truly glad I decided to let Premier Solutions be my first choice in seeking a better company to work for.

Anyone who is still on the fence, or trying to decide on whether or not Premier Solutions is the company for you, my advice is to look no further. Bill Franz and his team is the best choice in helping you find a better place to be.

Thank you so much for all you’ve done

When I was first introduced to Premier Solutions, I was a little reluctant. I had worked with a couple recruiters in the past who did not have my best intentions and cared more about filling the position. Upon my first call from Premier Solutions, I can attest they were the complete opposite. Mr. Bill and his colleagues guaranteed they will go over and beyond to meet the needs I requested, and if at any time I believed the position available was not for me, they had no problem finding something else that was a better fit. What I valued most about working with Mr. Bill was his dedication to me. He made it his responsibility to not only find me a job but the job, and I am so thankful. He treated me as if I were his only client and always answered the phone and/or emailed me back, and never stopped working until I was happy. He coached me throughout my process, and even encouraged me along the way when it began to seem a little stressful. With his wonderful expertise and personable attitude, I was able to receive a successful offer in a field that I love so much doing what I love to do! If you are considering services, I highly recommend Mr. Bill and his staff at Premier Solutions. He has definitely given me a new outlook on recruitment and I would not refer anyone to anybody else. He truly made me feel a part of their company and worked with me and for me until I was provided great results.

In the beginning I was unsure about putting myself out there when I was already happy with my current job. I turned down an opportunity due to it not meeting my needs and just a couple of months later they reached out to me again with another position that intrigued me. Through the process of interviewing, Bill was communicating with me each time on the dos and don’ts and to provide feedback afterwards. I felt like his knowledge was very useful and helped guide me through all of the stages. I really liked getting emailed documents on what the company was looking for and the personalization by having conversations about it over the phone. I am so glad that Premier Solutions reached out to me and helped me in taking a great opportunity for my career! I will recommend Premier Solutions to anyone I know that is looking for a career move or change, they truly are professional and do a great job!

I lost my job after 18 years in the restaurant business.  I didn’t know where to turn so I went online and applied to over 50 jobs with no results.  Then I found Premier Solutions and found Dave Ngo and Brian Bruce.  They immediately contacted me after I filled out a short questionnaire.  I wasn’t sure how headhunters worked but they explained it to me very well and now I’m starting my new career in the Restaurant Management field just after a couple weeks of using their services.  Brian Bruce was extremely helpful and was easy to get in contact with, which I highly appreciated.  I had doubts during the process that almost had me taking another career opportunity, but Brian went to bat for me to get it done.  I would highly recommend using his services for your next career choice.

I must say I was very skeptical in the beginning. I had used recruiting services in the past with much disappointment and frustration. I have known Brian Bruce for short period and have nothing but positive things to say. He as well as his team at Premier Solutions Recruiting handled the transition from one company to another with seamless positive results. Brian was great at communicating and insuring of a smooth process of getting set for my next challenge. His advice and tools prepared me to present my experience and skills. I could not be happier with the outcome. Please do not hesitate to contact Brian if you are thinking of a change or just starting out.

Working as a restaurant manager, customer service is everything and your word needs to mean something to the customer so that they’re taken care of and have a great experience. When you are looking for employment as a restaurant manager,  having someone keep their word is huge. In the six weeks it took to get my job with a company that I really love, I have experienced that firsthand. I sent out my resume, did the assessments, had interviews with a couple of different headhunters and individual companies and the only company, Premier Solutions, did what they said they were going to do. I went on interviews and had direct feedback immediately. I was informed of the processes and what the companies comments were after each. I excepted a position after three weeks of working with Premier Solutions.

I would tell them that if they want results to contact Premier Solutions, the entire process was amazing, they prepared me for my interview, gave hints on the do’s an don’ts, that sometimes could cost a job.


I was able to get the job I wanted for a very desirable salary.


I have never used a recruiter before. I applied for a restaurant ad and received an unexpected return phone call. A gentleman named Bill called me back about the job. He informed me that he was not the hiring manager and he would be my liaison between myself and the company I applied for. Having never worked with a recruiter before I was a little hesitant, but decided to give him a shot. Little did I know that was the best decision I ever made. Bill was able to not only get me an interview with the company I applied for, but other companies as well. At no cost to myself I must add! Bill will take away the very stressful side of finding new employment. I would recommend his impeccable services to anyone looking for a position in restaurant management.


Bill Franz is one of the best in the industry no games no jokes and no waste of time. I started working with bill Franz and in as little as 2 days I was interviewed for a very good job he was there for any questions that I had on top of everything. I suggest Bill Franz for any employee or employer. Very good customer service. I have never used a recruiting service in my life but I will not live with out it .. Highly recommend. Thank you.

I was seeking another restaurant management position when I reached out to Bill Franz, President of Premier Solutions. I was looking for a high volume, high-energy concepts with upward mobility. Bill placed me in front of the right client, helped me manage the interview process, and gave me solid information and advise about the position. Bill was instrumental in my job search and played a pivotal role with my finding the opportunity I was looking for. I would strongly recommend Bill and Premier Solutions for management searches in the restaurant industry.

Prior to Bill contacting me, I had never worked with a recruiter before and was unsure of how it would work or if it would work at all.
Premier Solutions did a great job of setting me up with a growing company with all the things I was looking for in making my next career move. The most valuable thing was Bill’s willingness to work with me in order to make things happen. No matter came about during the interview process, Bill and Premier Solutions was there and did a great job. I am thankful to Bill for his hard work and connecting me with my new company.


When I was contacted by Bill about him seeing my resume on line, I was impressed by his professionalism and his knowledge of company’s that were actively seeking managers for immediate employment.

Once he had arranged a phone interview for me he forwarded me very helpful tools, Candidate Interview Prep Lists, Questions Prep Lists, that enabled me to be confident, competent and succeed in making an impression that lead to further interviews, and eventually being hired.

I think Bill’s true talent is being able to put you with a company that is a good fit for both party’s. I have recommended Bill to my friend who is actively seeking employment, and would also do the same for any body that is looking for the right fit also!

Premier Solutions greatly exceeded my expectations. I have worked with other restaurant recruiters in the past and they are far superior. I wasn’t to sure what to expect from this company when they initially reached out to me. If you are a restaurant manager and need assistance finding a professional company that will set you up for success, this is your company. All of the options that Bill and his associates presented to me were high paying, rapidly expanding, and reputable restaurants. What truly impressed me was all the background information they presented for each company. They want to be successful and they give you all the information to make an informed decision on what concept and company you look for. The most important tool I received was a list of questions that my future employer might ask during the interview. These were very specific questions that when answered correctly, made me a very desirable candidate. I learned that I was doing some things the right way and some things the wrong way. There is a science behind setting yourself apart, and I learned that. My demands were very high. I wanted to find a restaurant that had a lot of growth and that would keep my at my current salary. I wanted a company that I could build a future with and cultivated the right environment. I was hired by my top choice and could not be more excited. If you are a restaurant manager that is looking to make a change, it is imperative that you contact Premier Solutions. Great restaurants are out there and they need great leaders. Thank you Bill and the rest of your staff for setting me up for success.

I can say without a doubt working with Bill at Premier Solutions was a very positive experience. I was matched up with an opportunity that exactly fit my needs and wants with my now current employer. Bill was great to work with, was very open in his communication with me, and was always available to me if I had questions or concerns. I have worked with other recruitment agencies in the past, and they were very passive in their approach to keep me informed of my status with potential employers. Bill was concerned with putting me in the best possible situation for everyone involved, not just filling another opening. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about using a recruiting firm to help them in their job search.

Upon moving to Asheville I began looking for a Restaurant Management position. After responding to an ad, I was put in touch with Premier Solutions, in particular Bill Franz. I was a little hesitant since I had used a recruiting company in the past and it hadn’t gone well. After speaking with Mr. Franz though my worries were put to rest. He was extremely professional and helpful from the first time we spoke. Upon gathering personal and professional information about myself, he was able to put me in touch with a great restaurant group that matched exactly what I was looking for! During the interview process, Mr. Franz was able to give me extremely helpful information about the company and the people I would be interviewing with. Along with that, he prepped me for what questions I could maybe expect to be asked and how to best answer these. This information gave me added confidence going into the interviews. After three interviews I was offered a position!! One of the best parts of working with Premier Solutions and Bill Franz was that this whole process, from the first time I spoke to Bill until I was offered a job, took less than two weeks!! I would recommend Premier Solutions for anyone looking for employment who wants results, while working with friendly and courteous professionals.

Sincerely,

JG


Bill, I wanted to send you a great big THANK-YOU for your efforts in assisting me these last couple months. I had spoken to several different companies, and you were hands down the most effective, concerning, and truly preformed well beyond my expectations. You not only made it comfortable for me, but truly cared and became an ally, a confidant, a friend, or a person that allowed me to vent and bounce my ideas off of(however you want to say it)…But you did it, and I appreciate your abilities and efforts on my behalf. I was looking to make a move from Florida to North Carolina when we got in contact. That is not an easy transition with the concerns of the move and economical future. You were honest, informative, and acted as my representative in getting me the position that is truly a dream job in my business. Not only did you walk me through it from states away, but even after as I was debating which move would be best for me, you stayed non-biased in trying to assist me in choosing my next path in life(although one was clearly better for me to choose, in regards to you). I kind of chuckled at your voicemail with you being the “CEO of results”, and your “making great things happen” line, but the simple truth is you came through and did exactly what you advertised. Great job my friend, I appreciate all your efforts and “great things” you made happen. I wish you well, and will always recommend you to others as hands down the greatest service available. Job well done!!

J.S.
