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)

    I'm finally going back to work for a company that I can take pride in being employed with, for a position that I've been truly interested in, and Gary Tietz has been crucial in helping me in this process.  Gary has only tried to place me in positions that would truly be a good fit for me, and only with reputable companies that I would be comfortable in going to work for.  He has been great to work with, and has not only been very responsive and communicative, but has also provided great insight and information for each particular position that I've interviewed for.  I would certainly work with Gary again in the future!

  • Frank Rondeau created an Excellent Customer Service Experience!

    On paper the clients and my requirements were not a match.  Frank’s ability to create a match by identifying unrealized commonalities was remarkable.  I recommend working with Frank as a value proposition for all parties.

    Thank you,

  • Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!

    After the year of 2020, like so many others, the job that I worked so hard for had come to a halt. I had been looking for a similar job since to no avail. I am very glad I contacted Patrice & Associates for help.  Eric Coultoff really wanted to help find the right job for me. He even helped improve my resume.  He was in constant contact letting me know the process of it all and gave me multiple updates.  Within a week I received an interview and Eric helped me prepare for it.  I am now employed due to that interview and I thank Patrice & Associates, specifically!     Thank you, Michael Fossaceca Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!
  • Mr. Piroozmand really cares and took the time to coach me through the process. 

    Hamoon Piroozmand is hands down the best recruiter that I have ever worked with thus far in my career.  Hamoon did a really great job of making sure that the fit was right between the company I got hired with and myself by getting to know me and what I wanted out of the next company.  His passion for his work really shined when I was going through the interview process.  Hamoon was always responsive as well.  I was also interviewing with other companies at the time, outside of the recruiting that Hamoon did, and applied the techniques that I had discussed with Hamoon, I got final offers on all interviews.  I took the offer that Hamoon presented me with, even though the other concepts paid more because I trust the fit.  Overall, Hamoon will ask you to do things that other recruiters will ask you to do, but there was accountability and follow up throughout the whole process and if you're serious about getting the job, follow his plan.  It works!
