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 appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

    Andrew Figueroa
