Patrice and Associates Impacts Peoples Lives

When our Mission says “Recruiting is about helping people” we mean it.  Every week we receive testimonials where we have helped people find jobs. We were successful where other recuiting agencies failed.  We cared about the person and went the extra mile when no one else would.  This testimonial from Wayne Calloway talking about what Tim Cordrey, our Richmond franchisee, did for his life is incredible.

“First, let me just start by saying THANK YOU.

I started the new year with great expectations and enthusiasm. One day I received a phone call from my mother telling me she was diagnosed with cancer, it floored me and all I could think of is that I had to be near her and see her through this ordeal. I took a leave of absence which turned into me leaving a job that I loved permanently.

Well, 2 months later my mom is cancer free and doing great!!!! Now it’s time to look for employment, so I started posting my resume online to different job sites to no avail. I started getting emails from Insurance Companies for employment in sales, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with working for insurance companies but it wasn’t my cup of tea.

I started to receive phone calls from various recruiters, I won’t name names, but at least 3. Here it is June and my fiance and I are expecting a little one in July and she’s the only one working 50 hrs a week to pay the bills. I had become so stressed out that I started breaking out in a rash on my face and was a little down in spirit.

About 2 weeks ago I got a phone call from Tim Cordrey of Patrice and Associates inquiring if I was yet employed, to which I replied “No”, now mind you, the thought was running through my head that this guy is going to be just like the rest of the sorry recruiters who have contacted me and literally did nothing but gave lip service. He told me about a company that was looking for managers and explained a little about the company. We talked for about maybe 15 minutes and he set up an interview with me. Upon arriving I was so nervous yet anxious and after seeing Tim I thought to myself, Lord, what am I going to say to this man, it’s been years since I had to do an interview, he instantly put me at ease. He explained the company a little more in detail and we went over my resume in depth. He asked me various questions and after answering he coached me on the proper way to address the question. He was passionate about his job in helping me find employment. Never have I seen anyone so determined to help me in my quest to find a career, not just a job.

Tim Told me that the District Manager had interviewed previous applicants that worked where I use to and none of them had any luck and that the DM really didn’t want to interview because he had no luck with applicants from the company that I was previously employed. After talking to me, he told the DM that there was something different about me and that if he would only give me a chance to be interviewed he could see for himself. 2 interviews later and I am now employed as a manager for a very well known company making $11k more than I was at my last job. I am so ecstatic that I’m dancing all over my house. No longer am I stressed about finding a JOB.

To Tim and the staff at Patrice and Associates, I and my family THANK YOU, not only did Tim accomplish what he set out to do but he gained my TRUST and FRIENDSHIP and that’s hard to do. I will personally and without reservation recommend all of my friends or colleagues who are looking for employment to call Tim @ Patrice and Associates first before they look anywhere. God bless you Tim and may he continue to rain blessings on you and yours.”

Sincerely,

Wayne Calloway

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN
