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.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • David Hotovy was amazing in every way possible. 

    First off, I would like to say Thank you for all the support and help landing a spot for me.  We kept in contact everyday whether we were talking about family or work.  Even after the prospected new job kept us hanging, after we thought we landed it, he was there to make sure my mind was still right.  I actually want to work with him and the company now lol.  He stayed focused on finding me a spot and telling me that I have everything companies need.  To his Boss as well, to going to bat for me. I feel I made a new friend.  I don't know if there is anymore that I can say, I would love to do more for the company so your whole team is recognized.  I deal with businesses and customers a lot and this was by far the best customer experience I've ever had!  I thought I was the best!! If there is anything I can do for David and your company let me know.
    Cheers,

  • Colleen Casey went above and beyond. 

    Colleen Casey of Patrice & Associates helped me obtain a Payroll position.  She helped build my confidence and mentored me through the interview process.  In my past career searches I have worked with other career agencies and never experienced the service I received working with Colleen.  She became my mentor with building up my confidence and how to go about interviewing for the company I have accepted my current position.  I would recommend the company, but would definitely tell anyone to contact Colleen if they are looking for a new position in the future.

    Thank you,

  • Darryl is my Coach Angel. I'm very thankful to have been reached out to for this job.  At the same time I received the call I was just listening to something and then I received the call from Darryl and things were answered.  I'm even receiving more money than my last management job ( WOW ).  Thanks again, you all changed the game for me.           Sincerely, RASHEDA KEITH Darryl is my Coach Angel
  • Corina Mack was amazing!  

    She communicated well throughout the interview process and understood my goals and expectations of the job position.  She did a great job of connecting me to what the company was looking for in the VP of Operations position.  This gave me ability to be well prepared for my interviews.   Not only would I recommend Corina, but planning on using her in my new role to continue to staff accordingly.
    Thank you,
