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.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I'd recommend Gary Tietz implicitly to anyone currently looking for quality positions in the hospitality industry.
    I'm finally going back to work for a company that I can take pride in being employed with, for a position that I've been truly interested in, and Gary Tietz has been crucial in helping me in this process.  Gary has only tried to place me in positions that would truly be a good fit for me, and only with reputable companies that I would be comfortable in going to work for.  He has been great to work with, and has not only been very responsive and communicative, but has also provided great insight and information for each particular position that I've interviewed for.  I would certainly work with Gary again in the future!
    Thank You!

  • I had a wonderful experience working with Jodi Baer 

    She really took care of me and kept me up to date throughout the process.  I always felt Jodi was available for me and able to assist me.  I would highly recommended her to friends and associates who are in related fields.

  • Frank Rondeau created an Excellent Customer Service Experience!

    On paper the clients and my requirements were not a match.  Frank’s ability to create a match by identifying unrealized commonalities was remarkable.  I recommend working with Frank as a value proposition for all parties.

    Thank you,

  • Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!

    After the year of 2020, like so many others, the job that I worked so hard for had come to a halt. I had been looking for a similar job since to no avail. I am very glad I contacted Patrice & Associates for help.  Eric Coultoff really wanted to help find the right job for me. He even helped improve my resume.  He was in constant contact letting me know the process of it all and gave me multiple updates.  Within a week I received an interview and Eric helped me prepare for it.  I am now employed due to that interview and I thank Patrice & Associates, specifically!     Thank you, Michael Fossaceca Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!
  • Mr. Piroozmand really cares and took the time to coach me through the process. 

    Hamoon Piroozmand is hands down the best recruiter that I have ever worked with thus far in my career.  Hamoon did a really great job of making sure that the fit was right between the company I got hired with and myself by getting to know me and what I wanted out of the next company.  His passion for his work really shined when I was going through the interview process.  Hamoon was always responsive as well.  I was also interviewing with other companies at the time, outside of the recruiting that Hamoon did, and applied the techniques that I had discussed with Hamoon, I got final offers on all interviews.  I took the offer that Hamoon presented me with, even though the other concepts paid more because I trust the fit.  Overall, Hamoon will ask you to do things that other recruiters will ask you to do, but there was accountability and follow up throughout the whole process and if you're serious about getting the job, follow his plan.  It works!
    Sincerely,
    Kristin Barrett
