Melrose-based recruiting service moves to new location

Dana Sacia started her business working out of her home’s basement, and then she moved to a house converted into an office. Now her Melrose-based business has grown so much that a new location was in order.

ARS — which stands for Alternative Recruiting Services — recently moved to its new location at 106 E. Hogg St. The building, which previously housed the Melrose Chronicle, has been getting a makeover both inside and out.

Even though ARS has been around for eight years, Sacia said the move makes the business more noticeable locally.

“Everybody in town is curious,” said Sacia, originally from La Crosse before moving to Melrose.

ARS helps link workers with employers, specializing in recruiting employees on behalf of insurance and financial services companies. ARS works nationwide and represents over 30 companies, including New York Life, MetLife, Penn Mutual and Allstate.

“We reach out to candidates to create the right business relationship,” Sacia said. “We really do the upfront work and present the business with opportunities. We’re really designed to fulfill our clients’ potential.”

ARS also offers telemarketing and on-demand sourcing services in addition to merger and acquisition information gathering.

ARS has 10 employees and previously was located on Mill Street. Sacia said the business had grown and needed a different venue.

“We just needed a little bit more of a professional setting, so we decided to just take a leap,” she said. “It’s working well. It’s built almost like a call center, and it’s a lot more effective.”

Sacia’s first job was at 15 when she took appointments for insurance providers. Since then, she said she’s wanted to help companies best fill their employee needs.

“That just kind of snowballed,” she said.

Although ARS mainly works with pre-determined lists of recruits, potential workers — as well as potential clients — can contact ARS. The business can be reached via its website at or by calling (608) 488-3131 or (715) 299-1313. Business hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
