Testimonials Celebrating Success

Recent Testimonials about our hardworking and dedicated Franchisees and Recruiters:

 

I am writing to express my gratitude for Jenna Bakondy at Patrice & Associates.  I was contacted by Jenna as she found an opportunity that seemed like a good fit for my career.  Jenna was a total professional with high energy from the beginning which is something that I found refreshing and, even told her so!

I sent Jenna a copy of my most current resume and she helped critique my resume and make some changes.  She sees lots of resumes every day and she is more aware of what job prospectors are looking for pre-interview. Within a few days I was contacted by Jenna with ‘Good News!’  She was able to schedule me an interview!

Jenna was very supportive and helpful through the whole process of the interview.  She gave me a lot of great advice and encouragement which is a rare find these days.  I thanked her for her enthusiastic support as it made me feel that much more confident walking into the interview.  After the interview there was a little bit of negotiating which Jenna and her team/supervisors gave me some ideas on and wouldn’t you know it, I got the job!

I thanked Jenna many times as I have been managing in the industry for over 15 years and have rarely come across someone who was truly dedicated to helping someone the way Jenna helped me.  I am happy at my new job and Jenna was right there to follow up with me a couple of weeks after I started, just to make sure everything was going great.  It still is! Thanks Jenna!

  • Jenelle Siwicki – Schaumburg, IL

I have never dealt with a recruiter before, but she is a credit to her industry. Having her in your corner, prepping me and preparing me for each step of the job finding process was invaluable.

Margo Kornfeld was an amazing help. She helped me find my dream job. She was attentive and available to me throughout every step. Her attention to detail and honest critique helped me prepare and present my self in a more advantageous light. She helped me tweak my resume to better highlight my talents, and her interview prep was invaluable. She is genuinely warm and caring and I honestly feel as though I have made a friend for life. Although I hope I never need her again, I’m definitely not going to be losing her number!

  • Victoria Yambala – Bronx, NY

First of all I would like to thank everyone at Patrice and Associates. But a special thanks to Patty Ganner, my recruiter. Patty was an invaluable asset to me in the entire interview process. The information she provided, such as what questions to ask, what questions to be prepared for, including background on the people I’d be meeting, really helped me to be ready for any surprises. She even put info on what to wear!! After six hours of interviews and three hours of assessments it worked. And this was the first place that Patty sent me. Thanks again Patty, I would recommend you to anyone looking for future employment. You truly are a valuable asset to your company.

  • Adrian Olalde – Las Vegas, NV

Vicki Marshall is amazing. She is professional, helpful and easy to talk to. I am making a big move physically as well as in my career and Vicki has made both an enjoyable experience. I am thankful for her guidance and encouragement and would highly recommend her!

  • Erin Mitchell – Bend, OR

Ken Schreifels with Patrice & Associates was wonderful to work with while I was looking for a new restaurant management job.  I had never used a recruiter before and wasn’t sure what to expect.  He was very professional and helpful through the whole process.  Ken stayed in constant contact with me and did everything in his power to help move the process along quickly.  I would highly recommend using Ken to anyone looking for a new career.

  • Hospitality Recruitment Works!

    My interactions with Mr. Richard were professional. He was very accommodating to my wants in needs when it came to the company I was looking to become a part of. I had tried myself to obtain a position with this company, but I was not able to do so on my own. With Richard's help I was able to land the position.  He kept me in the loop when it came to every interview that I had from beginning to end and kept me very upbeat and positive about the experience. I believe this is how a head hunter or recruiter should perform when dealing with clients very professional and had integrity in everything that he did.     Albert Jones     Hospitality Recruitment matches YOUR skills with the perfect job Hospitality Recruitment Works!

    Daniel was a great help to me on my job search. From the first time I was contacted by him I felt he was here not only to help the company find the right candidate but he was there to make sure I was right for the position.  Daniel is very persistent when he is working with you.  He knows that time is of the essence and he helps you adhere to a very strict timeline to be successful.  Daniel is there for you when you are feeling unsure and is always available to discuss just about anything.  He has a wealth of FOH & BOH knowledge and that really put me at ease because I have not met many recruiters with FOH & BOH experience. Talking to someone who has been where you have been really puts you at ease!  I am very appreciative that I had the chance to work with Daniel on this occasion.  I am thankful he was understanding, attentive, communicative, and seems to generally care about you as a person and a perspective candidate!

  • Hospitality Recruiters Make the Best Match for You in Your Next Job!

    Tom Schmitt was nothing but more than professional and courteous to me.  He originally contacted me about a company looking for a General Manager.  I was employed at the time, but not very happy in my situation.  Tom talked to me in great detail in regards to the position he had.  After careful consideration, I decided to pursue the opportunity.  He helped me create a more professional resume to present to the company.  He communicated to me on a daily basis as I went through the interview process.  I was eventually given an offer for the General Manager position.  I can honestly say that without Tom's help, I would still be in an unhappy job.   Thank you,   Roy Riddle     What kinds of jobs does a Hospitality Recruitment Specialist have for me?

  • Hospitality Recruiters can help YOU find a job!

    Stephanie Yee played a key role in not only getting me in the door for my first interview, but in every step thereafter in the process. Stephanie coached me on effective interview strategies specific to my prospective role and made herself available for questions anytime. I was consistently kept in the loop with each new step in the process and her client insights proved invaluable. I always knew what to expect at each turn and who I would be interviewing with, along with basics like where to park and expected attire…all things that can easily trip up a less informed candidate.  In addition to all of this, Stephanie’s naturally positive attitude helped me to stay calm throughout a lengthy interview process that spanned a number of anxiety driven weeks. In short, without Stephanie in my corner, I wouldn’t have been able to turn this new chapter in my career.
