What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

    Hospitality Recruiters are There for You!

    Back at the end of March my wife and I turned our restaurant over to our daughter and son in-law to run, with the idea we would retire. We took a couple of trips and got somethings done around the house.  By the first of July I knew the retirement life was not for me. I started filling out some applications online and just a couple days later I revived a call from Karl Busch, with Patrice & Associates, he let me know he had a position open in the area. Karl knew all my back ground was in full service restaurants and he ask if this was something I would be interested in, I let him know that I love the restaurant business and doing something different in the business is just what I needed. Karl made the phone calls and got met the interview, he really went to bat for me. After a couple weeks I am now training and really enjoying the job and the people. Karl still checks on me to see how things are going. I don’t think of Karl Busch as a job recruiter but as a friend. Thank you Karl and Patrice & Associates for believing in me, Dave Grant     #1 Hospitality Management Recruitment Agency Hospitality Recruiters are There for You!

    Karl was the best asset in securing my new position. He was there coaching and teaching me every step of the way. I have been working in the food industry for 20+ years and this is the first time I have used a recruiter. I have been on both ends of the hiring process and Karl has helped to know what people are looking for and what I should be looking for when hiring new employees. I look forward to meeting Karl and shaking his hand. If needed I would seek Karl out again!         Mahmoud Elkhyati         Need help with your resume – Have a Recruitment Specialist help you for FREE       Hospitality Recruiter Can Help You Find a Job!

    Let me just say, Thank you Karl. You have been the best recruiter I have ever worked with by far. I was completely impressed with your professionalism, you took the time to get to know me and my work history. After recent experiences with other recruiters you made me feel like a candidate that is capable of my skills and knowledge within my field.

    I would suggest Karl to any of my colleagues looking to move on to bigger and better positions.
