Awesome Client Testimonial!
I started working with Patrice & Associates in 2013.
I had had a positive experience with them early in my career and as a result, chose to reach out to them as an option for recruiting for our DC market to start with the hopes of using them on a national and/or international capacity. Currently, they are the sole recruiter that Richard Sandoval Restaurants uses in this market and based on their performance, have begun using them for job searches in other parts of the country.
The experience with Patrice & Associates has been a positive one. We operate a multitude of different concepts and styles and they have been very successful at providing the best fitting candidate for each of our individual brands.
Recruitment has been prompt during our job searches, the fastest being one week, and the longest 4 weeks from beginning to finish. They generally begin providing candidates immediately, the delay often being our strategy during the interview process.
We have not lost any of their referrals since we started working with them. On the contrary, we have many that are in a position to grow.
We have used their services for a variety of positions, and turn to them whether it is Manager, GM, Food and Beverage Director, or other FOH, BOH, administrative, or executive titles.
The best part of working with Patrice & Associates is the service aspect. They are always available to speak, and are patient and understanding during the recruitment process. We often invite their staff to our restaurants and recently they attended a pre opening event for our Toro Toro DC concept. We view them as part of our team and we feel they treat us as such. Many recruiters are just a team sitting behind a computer trying to snag a commission, which is not the case with Patrice & Associates.
The most frustrating part of working with them is not being able to see them more. We all work too much.
