Our Testimonials


Melinda Edmonds, Nyrstar
"We sincerely appreciate all of your hard work. You always go above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating to our demanding schedules; while consistently producing qualified candidates. Thank you for all you do for us."


-Mike Ayala, Park Place Communities
"I would highly recommend Pray Solutions to anyone looking to make their company better. Rhonda & Dana have assisted us in recruiting top talent and creating the systems and processes to keep and mentor them, leadership and team building, and advising on personnel and HR matters. We are a completely different company today than when we first started working together. We have the right people, with the right skills, a happier team, and our turnover is down immensely due to their knowledge, coaching and expertise."


-Grover Wallace, HR Manager
Sibanye-Stillwater

“To first understand, I have worked with Pray Solutions on a number of professional positions and found the quality and quantity of candidates supplied to be stellar. They take the time to first understand the client’s true needs and then thoroughly filter the resumes sending only those that meet the desired qualifications. Pray Solutions and their staff are great to work with and very cooperative.”


-Tori Martinez, Hycroft Mining Inc.

“Pray and Company is a proven HR resource for your recruiting needs working in a timely, respectful and effective manner. Our organization was searching for a management position and Pray & Company provided quality candidates collaborating with the team to ensure each candidate presented was vetted thoroughly to meet our needs. The Pray & Company team represented themselves professionally and asked us the right questions in order to find the right candidate. Without them being cost effective, our company would’ve continued the search on our own.”


-Jessica Link, Candidate

“I had been struggling with whether or not I should stay at my old job for quite some. A few weeks before my 30th birthday, Pray & Company contacted me via Facebook regarding a career opportunity. I’ve seen so many messages from head hunters via LinkedIn, but all were jobs on the other side of the country and for positions that weren’t exactly in my field of work. So, at first I was skeptical of the contacts. After finding out Pray & Company had actually networked with some of my colleagues, I felt this opportunity was more tailored to me and my skill-set. From that point, I couldn’t find and reason not to check things out and see if this position was for me.

Pray & Company set up an interview that consisted of a dinner and tour with all the Superintendents at the site. They coordinated and guided me through a very exciting but slightly terrifying process and I couldn’t be more thankful for their hard work and this opportunity.”


-Glenda Parkman, Haile Gold Mine, Inc.

"The Pray team developed a marketing plan to suit our business needs, arranged information/career fairs, and successfully advertised our Company, OceanaGold, Haile Operation. From this introduction, our data base has grown and we have been successful in recruiting, and offering employment to a skilled workforce to meet our business needs."


- Joe Thomas

"A huge thanks to Dede Barker and Pray & Company for a foot in the door with my new employer and for helping me throughout the hiring process. I enjoy being with a start-up operation and the learning and experiences offered.”


- Aubree Barnum

"Pray & Company has proven to be a reliable resource and business partner, providing efficient and effective solutions to meet our specific business needs. Our organization values their professional expertise in the areas of recruitment, compensation, advertising and promotional services. We especially appreciate that their HR strategies are tailored to suit our unique organizational culture. I would highly recommend the Pray Team for anyone in need of HR services."
