Another Success Story – Abhishek Makkar hired as District Manager with Arbys

About 4 months ago I got in touch with a gentleman named Mike Alderman. He is the Jacksonville, FL franchisee with P&A. Over the phone he asked me a few general questions, getting to know me, both personally &  professionally, and convinced that my resume needed no additional work he promised me he would call back within a few days with additional information on the interview process. And he did! With his positive attitude and speedy service, I never felt the need to contact another employer or a consulting firm to pursue my job hunt.

Before we go any further in the testimonial for Mike, I would like to share a little about me. In life, I always get what I put my mind to but with a few hiccups here and there. While applying for a new job in this economy is no easy task, can you imagine the hiccups I had in this process? I cannot even begin to explain how at times it was so brutal with long waits and countless phone calls just checking with each other on the status.

Mike is most definitely an asset to Patrice & Associates and will be successful in his franchise. In my experience of working with Mike for the last 4 months, he has been very professional, diligent, thorough and reliable. He made this process a little less painful I must say. He never gave up on me and anyone in my position (looking for a better opportunity) needs to hear and feel the support. Thank you for caring Mike!!!!

I found Mike to have a strong work ethic, excellent follow up skills, efficient, easy to work with and innovative.

Mike’s biggest strength would be his capacity to care for his candidates. He would call me on a regular basis, keep in touch with me (I responded, of course), check on me and keep me posted with any new developments (many times nothing happened and it would end up being a nail biting call). It was not just an average business transaction and he made me feel cared for as a person rather than a candidate.

When I got hired, I received a basket of chocolates (I opened the box thinking it is from someone else) and to my surprise it was from Mike. Inside there was a small note that read “FINALLY” (which ONLY the two of us can relate to) wishing me well and congratulating me. Thank you so much, you really touched my heart.

Mike, it was a pleasure to work with you and I would recommend Mike to anyone as his experience, warm personality and charm would benefit any organization or an individual.

Thank you for everything you have done for me.
