  • I had been searching for a restaurant management opportunity for about 4 weeks and had very little luck.  I couldn't seem to find the "right" position or find the "right"person to help me.  Then I came across the ad from Patrice and Associates recruiting for a kitchen manager for one of their clients.  So I completed another application, submitted my resume and waited.

    To my surprise, I received a phone call the next morning from Tom Schmitt, a recruiter with Patrice and Associates about an opportunity for a kitchen manager.  Tom provided great details about the position, and the company.  He asked questions about me as a potential employee and also about what interest me outside of work.  He told me he would submit my resume and he believed I would be a great fit. 3 weeks later, I am in training with this concept and thoroughly enjoy every aspect of it. Tom was is a great fit!  By using his personal knowledge of the restaurant business and his contacts gained over 20 plus years, he is a great recruiter.
