    We can find YOU a Job in the Hospitality Industry

    Chelsie Greenway, recruiter in the Greenville, SC office, was a excellent help to me throughout the entire process of helping me find a new career job. From the very beginning she took her time to learn and understand my current situation & my wants and needs as far as moving on to something new. Over some time and weighing out options the opportunity to become a potential fit with Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar presented itself. Once I decided to go for it, Chelsie assisted in preparing me to give myself the best possible chance of obtaining the position. 3 interviews later I was offered the Kitchen Manager position with Bad Daddy’s And was able to start 3 weeks after accepting! I appreciate Chelsie so much for her help, phone calls, emails, and text messages of encouragement as I pursued this opportunity. She was a pleasure working with and I’d recommend her services to anyone looking to make the next big move in their Foodservice journey.

    Tiffany finds out Hospitality Recruitment works!

    I'll start by saying Thank You! Gary Tietz and Patrice & Associates for the excellent service you provide. I always thought working with a Job Recruiting Agency wouldn't land me a career with a company I desire. I can honestly say I WAS WRONG. Communicating with Gary Tietz was a great experience. The first conversation we've had was about Patrice & Associates. What service the company offer and how he can help out with my job search. He scheduled an interview for us to speak more about my work history, customer interactions, and supervisor positions. He also setup a phone interview with the Manager of Recruiting of Corner Bakery. After interviewing with Lauren, I've learned more about Corner Bakery and she got to know me. Two days after the interview with Michelle I was offered a Full-time Supervisor Position with Corner Bakery. Whenever Gary heard any information from Lauren he immediately contacted me providing new updates of the hiring process. I'm extremely excited I was offered a position and grateful of the experience with Patrice & Associates!   Thanks Again Keara Young Tiffany finds out Hospitality Recruitment works!
