Hear What Our Clients Think

We have had a 100% success rate with Grapevine, They are flexible and responsive and well suited to the peculiar needs of the business of show.

-Thomas Bliss, Strike Entertainment


I called Lori at the Grapevine to help me on a very important executive assistant search. She responded quickly with very qualified and interesting candidates. She listened to our needs, quickly got a grasp of our corporate culture and sent candidates she knew would fit the role. She made the interview scheduling process very easy and convenient for us. We ultimately ended up hiring a candidate we had found on our own. Bu, overall it was a joy to work with Lori and we will absolutely contact her first should we ever need help with another search like this one.

-Nancy Alley, SVP, Director of Human Resources


The Grapevine is a Godsend. I run a company that is in constant expansion mode and finding quality new employees is a tedious process. The Grapevine streamlines this process and saves my company hours of time and brings us only the best of the current talent pool. The results have been amazing and we intend to use The Grapevine for all of our talent search needs. I can’t recommend The Grapevine highly enough.

-Larry Weintraub, CEO, Fanscape, Inc.


I explained to the Grapevine the type of position I needed to fill and the type of person I was looking for that I saw to be a good fit for my office environment. The Grapevine carefully listened to my needs and I hired the first person they introduced me to for the position. I am quite pleased with my new employee. She is efficient and pleasant to have in the office.

Hear What Our Candidates Think

Working with The Grapevine was a thoroughly pleasurable and effective experience. After expressing interest in a posting, I was met with a quick and informative response including details regarding a once-on-one interview. This meeting was convenient to set, and Rachel was flexible in meeting my existing schedule. This meeting served as both a chance for me to gather more information in greater details about the job opportunity and for The Grapevine to learn more about me. Not only was I impressed with Rachel’s ability to answer my questions and the degree of knowledge to which she possessed regarding the job, I was incredibly surprised with how enthusiastic she was about me and the job opportunity. She made me feel comfortable and excited about the prospect of interviewing with the company itself. Hardly a prepackaged or cookie-cutter interview, this initial meeting felt extremely friendly and conversational. Rachel showed genuine interest in and concern for my position and desire. After that, she took care of the rest and even followed up subsequent to my company interview. Consequently, the experience was completely fulfilling, and the positive result speaks for itself. Thank you Grapevine for a wonderful experience!

-Tyler Rose


The hardest part about working with The Grapevine, was choosing where to sit for coffee. From that point on, I was surprised by the fast response time, quality of treatment, and flexibility I received. I felt comfortable presenting reasonable doubts, questions, and hopes without fear that I would burn any bridges or show uncertainty to a company. Thus, it took the desperation out of my entry-level job search, allowing me to think of where I was headed and where I was wanted as opposed to what I would end up doing.

-Monica Hoge


When I was looking for a nanny position, I decided to call The Grapevine. I was pleasantly surprised when they returned my calls and emails straight away; we met for an interview and again was happy that they listened to what I was looking for, what I want in a family position and really seemed to understand where I was coming from.


They really seem to care about the right fit for the clients as well as their candidates, and they never pressured me into taking a position I felt I was not right for, not have I ever been made to feel like I am wasting their time with my phone calls, and that is so rare within an agency setting in Los Angeles.


I very highly recommend this agency to clients as well as to candidates. They are a breath of fresh air in this industry.

-Michelle Bartley


Having just been laid off for the second time in three years, I felt pretty helpless with little to no faith left in the entertainment industry. A friend of mine sent me The Grapevine job list and immediately contacted Lori. She was incredibly welcoming, and before we even met, suggested an opportunity that may work for me. I met her the next day, and she had an interview on the calendar for me that same day. The whole process from speaking to her on the phone to a fantastic interview with the perspective employer was just what I needed to realize there still is a chance out there. The Grapevine Agency is extremely classy and they work hard for you to find you exactly the right position. They are truly top notch.

-Amy Gunzenhauser


I enjoy working with The Grapevine Agency because they truly care about where they send you. They are honest and only send you out for opportunities that are a match with your skill set. Rachel has always been very honest with me, which is much appreciated. I find this agency to be fair in all of their dealings with people. I feel like each person matters to them. I would recommend them to anyone.

-Dana Feldman


A job search can be stressful and time consuming experience (especially wile currently employed). Working with Lori has made the process not only less stressful but overall more rewarding. I’ve worked with other recruiters and notice the difference in both personal attention and her level of clientele. She has a unique and thorough knowledge of the Entertainment Industry, its job opportunities, and has sent me on interviews that I wouldn’t have otherwise had access. Working with her I know I have access to some of the most interesting and competitive job opportunities. It’s also been nice knowing I truly have someone in my corner.

-Francine Anthony


After years of experiencing mediocrity with search firms and employment agencies, I found Lori. My meetings and conversations with you were enlightening: You got through to me faster than a speeding bullet. You allowed me to become aware of my capabilities and power. You made me feel I could leap the highest obstacle with a single bound.


You listened to me. And you got who I am. You really listened.


Your industry contacts are the best in the business. Your communication skills are unparalleled. I must also mention your compassion, rare in any business environment, for which I am most grateful.


Thank you for finding a terrific job match for me; Thank you for setting up truly the most fun and relaxed interviews; Thank you for your knowledge and employer/employee insight;  Thank you for having faith in me and in the joy of being alive.

- Mimi


I was really pleased with my experience working with the Grapevine in my search for a nanny position. Having worked with a couple of different agencies in the area, I really felt like I got the most personal attention from them. I felt like they were “on my side” –and cared about the right fit between myself and employers throughout the process instead of just sending me out on an interview and not following up. Now, I am working for a fantastic family that I truly feel is the perfect fit for me. I would definitely recommend checking out this service as it is highly personalized and takes the pressure off job searching!

-Christie Cole


I had an amazing experience with the Grapevine. I was very unhappy with the job that I was at but didn’t know what I wanted to do next. A colleague of mine referred me to the Grapevine and sent me the job list. They had a lot of great jobs that I probably wouldn’t have knowing about otherwise. I sent them my resume and they called me that same day to talk about my options and get the process going. They got me an interview for the job that I was most interested in, an in-house publicist at Maui Toys. Within 10 days, I was hired! The Grapevine got me a great salary with great benefits doing something I really love. When you are looking for a new job while still employed, it’s difficult to find the time to search for jobs, research the company and even schedule interviews. They did everything and made it a very smooth, easy process. I love my new job and it would not have been possible without the Grapevine.

-Ali Johnston


The Grapevine Agency is a breath of fresh air in Hollywood. Working directly with Lori Briller was a dream come true in many ways. First off, Lori was direct, approachable and honest. She was always quick to respond, and gave great advice. Secondly, she understood my strengths and weaknesses and guided me into a job that would be not only a great fit for me but also for the client. When closing the deal, Lori and Rachel stood behind me one hundred percent and made sure the transaction was closed before taking a step back. I not only tremendously respect Lori as a colleague but I value her a friend and mentor in the entertainment industry.

-Anonymous


The Grapevine was extremely helpful with my job search. I am now happily working at a new job in PR, which is everything that I was looking for. The professional guidance was invaluable –they knew that this would be the perfect match for me and she was right.
