A HUGE Thank You for Mike Cinamon

 I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Cinnamon of Patrice & Associates over the last month.  He contacted me after finding me on Linked In & the process began.  I had been with the same company for almost 16 years and was ready for a change.  I knew that I wanted to work for a growing company with a product that I could be proud of.  I had looked many times in the past, but it was never quite right.  Mike began the process quickly.  He spoke with me about myself & what I wanted out of my career.  He even helped tweak my resume to include all of my accomplishments. Within a day of speaking with him the first time I had an interview with their Vice President.  Within that 1st meeting I could tell that this time was different from all of the rest.  It was as if I had given Mike my list of all the things I would want in my next career and they had those exact things to offer!  Soon after the 1st meeting I met with the G.M. and did a “Day in the Life” at the restaurant. It just got better from there!  Mike called me daily before and after each step to make sure I was happy & feeling confident about the process.  He always had great advice to offer & made me feel like he was more of a friend or a family member than a recruiter.  He truly cared on a whole other level.  

Within just a  couple of weeks from the initial phone call Mitchell’s Fish Market made me an amazing offer.  It was exactly what I wanted in all aspects.  It seemed too good to believe!  I couldn’t be a better fit for my new position & I’m so excited for this amazing opportunity with a fabulous & growing company. 

I am so thankful that Mike found me & sent me the lead.  If he hadn’t it could have been years before I could ever find something so perfect for me on my own.  His organization & follow up will make anyone he works with confident that he is doing what is best for YOU.  I highly recommend using his expertise to any company looking for the right person or individual looking for the next step in their career.  I will be forever grateful for all that he did for me.  He gave me confidence that he wanted to make sure this position was a good fit for me and I would be happy in the end.  He wasn’t just finding a body to fill a position to get his job done.  

Thank you Mike times a million for all that you did for me & I wish you much happiness.  I have no doubt that you will have a long and happy career because you are SO good at what you do!

Sincerely,

Karmin Diedrick (hired by Mitchell’s Fish Market)

  • Recruitment coaches help you think outside of your comfort zone.

    I was contacted by Joe about the job opportunity and at first I was against it. I was searching for something that was outside of my comfort zone and outside of the food industry. While talking with Joe he was so enthusiastic about the company that I said sure let’s give it a try. Joe was with me every single step of the way. From initial contact to me actually being hired he was there. He called/ texted me the day of my interview and encouraged me along the way. I was surprised and happy for his involvement to help me. I could always count on him for great advise and tips during the process. He shared my excitement each time I was contacted by the new company and followed my journey. He was always professional and was easily contacted when I had butterflies about me making the changes. I recommend Joe to any job seekers out there. He went above and beyond!

  • Recruitment Coaches are Your Coach for Life!

    All I can say about Mike is he has always been supportive and a great mentor to me over the past 8 years.  First as my Director of Operations with Mimi’s Café he always challenged me to be a better manager and encouraged my growth by having me take on leading weekly kitchen manager calls for his market and trusting me to go into troubled locations and helping to turn them around.  Most recently when my time with Mimi’s was over Mike was able to help me secure the next step in my journey in less than 3 weeks.

    I was extremely impressed with Sharon's attention to detail and to make me feel comfortable.  She was in my corner the whole time.  I think it is really great that she actually eats at the restaurants that I will be managing so that is encouraging because that means they have a great working relationship!  I felt that she knew exactly how to prepare me for the interview and the resume that was created was very impressive!
