“Our Company has been using Ag 1 Source for almost 10 years and, as we have grown, we have filled several key positions in the Company with candidates provided by Ag 1 Source. We can count on candidates provided by Ag 1 Source to be the top performers in their area of expertise that are highly qualified, pre-screened and well briefed as to our expectations, prior to our first contact with the job candidate. I would strongly recommend Ag 1 Source as the top agricultural recruiting firm for both employers and professionals looking for new employment opportunities. “


“It’s been a real pleasure working with Rick at Ag 1 Source. We are a multi-location Ag dealer and finding top talent is a key component in reaching our growth goals. They found a service manager for one of our stores a couple years ago and a service tech for another store just recently. The service manager is top-notch and doing an excellent job. Our shop efficiencies and gross margins are steadily climbing. The new tech is everything Rick said he would be and is progressing nicely. I would highly recommend Ag 1 Source for helping you fill your staffing needs.”


Mark, we want to sincerely thank you for helping us find an employee for our company.  We truly believe this candidate will be an asset to our company and assist us in reaching a whole new level in this company.  It has been a great experience working with you, we appreciate all you have done and look forward to working with you again in the future!”


I’ve been able to make an offer right in the interview with your candidates. You give me the right candidates, and all the information I need to put together a package that they will accept. With everyone else I have to spend my time checking references and guessing at how to put an offer together. You make it really easy to hire good people


Ag 1 Source has been very professional and I appreciate their approach to how they find and resource candidates. The background work they do is excellent and I know when I have Ag 1 Source working on an open position for me that they only send the best candidates. I don’t have to weed through their candidates, they send the good stuff and their candidates stick.


I don’t know how Rhonda finds me the candidates she does, but she saves me a lot of hassle by just bringing me the cream of the crop. We’ve had great success with Ag 1 Source and Rhonda and she is my one and only go-to person when I have a search.


Ryan has found the candidates we are looking for in our company, we have hired 3 within the last year from Ag 1 Source and they are the correct fit. “


“Our company is regularly searching for employees in different parts of the country. Using Rick Rupp and Ag 1 Source has made the sorting process of finding qualified candidates easy and fast. We still place ads in the town or on the internet that we need someone, but we end up sifting through a lot of people before we find one that we want to interview. Rick consistently brings us well qualified candidates to choose from. Ag 1 Source and Rick Rupp have become an important partner in our candidate search process.


“I really like the types of candidates you are bringing to me. They are exactly the kind I need.”


“As a new client, this placement that we just wrapped was definitely the best experience I have ever had working with recruiting consultants. That was the best presentation of information on your candidates I have ever seen, the interview process was well organized, and I appreciated the heads up a on key characteristics of each candidate. Good job.”


“I would like to thank Mike Smith and Ag 1 Source for the outstanding professionalism and diligence in finding me the ideal job opportunity. After working with many different recruiters it was a pleasure to work with a company like Ag 1 Source. They truly work hard to put you in a position that fits your skills and personality.”


“Thanks Mike. I like the detail that you present for every candidate. Gives a great picture of what I want to begin asking in a phone interview to find out if they are accurately representing themselves. You guys are doing a great job.”


“Thank you, Margaret, for all your help during my job search.  It was a pleasure working with you.  You are very good and very professional at what you do.  I feel slightly bad that I didn’t help you earn some income because you sure worked hard for me.  You were the best, in my experience, at coming up with new, interesting ideas for me.  And you were, by far, the best at staying in touch!”


“Using Ag 1 Source has been a great process.  Extremely efficient and professional, Ag 1 Source was able to fill our needs for a national salesperson in a short amount of time. The fact that Ron pre-screened and recommended only the most qualified candidates for our interview process was well worth the investment.”


 “After almost 20 years progressing through various sales and management roles with the same global agriculture company I found myself on the outside looking in after a corporate reshuffle. This was new ground for me and I can honestly say that I was inexperienced on how to proceed to find my next career opportunity. I blindly sent out resumes to recruitment organizations, and I was extremely fortunate that Ron Hayden at Ag 1 Source was one of the recipients. Ron recognized the value that I offered to a future employer and took the time to get to know me, my skills and my aspirations. Within weeks Ron identified three potential employers that were seeking National Sales Manager positions with the exact skills I could deliver and proceeded to present and promote me to these organizations. Throughout the process Ron was supportive and encouraging and was great at communicating next steps. I am happy and fortunate to say that I am now the new US Sales Manager of a great company thanks to Ron and Ag 1 Source!”


“Rhonda, just wanted to let you know that I’m am absolutely loving my job. I’ve got a lot of training and work to get up to speed but it’s a new adventure everyday, which is a great thing. I’m am very very very pleased and appreciative of all you have done in this process and will defiantly be referring people your way.” -Successfully Placed Candidate


“As the owner, I am very satisfied with our experience with Ag Source 1.  Although I have been in business for 24 years, I have never used the services that Ag Source 1 provides.  I can say that Shannon Worrell was very professional and was instrumental in helping us find the right person for this position.  

Shannon explained the process to me completely; I was totally convinced that there would be positive results without any hidden or extra costs, and that the needs of my company would be met.  I believe it was a combination of Shannon’s understanding of and knowledge of our business that enabled me to, with her help, create a complete and accurate job description.  The candidates that Shannon brought to me met the criteria she had been given, and I had full confidence in the background research Shannon had performed on each candidate.  Shannon’s complete explanation of the process, and her willingness to be available to answer any questions were greatly appreciated; I can say that I am completely satisfied with the experience I had both with Ag Source 1 and with Shannon Worrell.  And, after two months of employment, I can also say that I am pleased with the performance of the candidate placed at our company.”  -A Highly Satisfied Client

“FYI, every hire we’ve made through your firm has been a success… when we’re shooting that well we need to take more shots!”

“When I decided to look for a new position I wanted to control my search and exposure to the market. Like many professionals, I had recruiters calling almost every day with no plan and no vision about how they could legitimately help me. After carefully researching placement firms and more specifically placement professionals, I chose Matt. His deep industry background and obvious passion for helping people find the right place and take the next step in leadership and career growth was clear. My actual experience with Matt has been better than I had hoped; Matt listened to me and the people who knew me best. He used that to move me toward an opportunity that exceeded my expectations and has turned out to be an excellent fit.  Matt helped me find the best opportunity of my life, it fits me professionally and personally.  I cannot recommend Matt Buyers or Ag 1 Source more highly.” –Happily Placed Candidate
