Manufacturing Recruitment


From the very beginning, the driving force of MJ Recruiters has been its commitment to clients and candidates, and that commitment is best summed up by the phrase “Raising the Bar!”

MJ Recruiters specializes in technical and professional Manufacturing recruitment.  We partner with automotive and non-automotive clients to supply candidates in the fields of Operations/Supervision; Engineering and Quality; Materials and Procurement; and Manufacturing Human Resources, Accounting, and Information Technology (IT).

Our specialty is recruiting candidates at the management level of these disciplines. We are focused regionally and have the capability to recruit nationwide, developing clients into long-term partners by thoroughly understanding their culture and their goals.

Other ways that MJ Recruiters, LLC strives to “raise the bar” in recruitment include the following:

  • Since starting our business we have placed over 700 manufacturing professionals
  • 58% of the candidate submittals that we make get interviewed on site by our clients
  • 25% of the candidates that are interviewed on site are made job offers by our clients
  • Through a successful recruitment process, over the last five years MJ Recruiters has filled over 60% of its contingent searches over the past five years beating the industry average of 18-25%.
  • Although the Ohio region is our focused geography; MJ Recruiters has placed candidates in a number of states, including Ohio, Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Georgia, Illinois, and Kentucky.
