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!

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!

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.

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.
