I chose to look into recruiting after a 25 year career in restaurants as a way to spend more time with my family and still have the ability to earn what I need to support them. I researched several recruiting companies and ultimately chose Patrice & Associates. While several things drew me to choose them over others, it was the training program that set them apart. Simply put it was longer and more intense. That was what I wanted and what I needed. I knew that after many years of working on my feet and in stores I would need structure to change my habits to allow me to succeed at recruiting. Classroom training is in depth, tons of one on one involvement with Patrice and Brian as leaders, and individual attention from in house recruiting staff. Many resources are available from the company as far as additional training tools, business management tools, and marketing tools. Support and willingness to help from other franchisees has also been excellent and a pleasant surprise. I am still very new to owning my own business and recruiting but I learn everyday from successes and failures. I can say that I see the momentum gaining each day. I see that I will get out of this what I put into it and I feel confident I have been given all the tools and support that I need to be successful. It is a business that will take time to develop and see a stream of income from. This was something that I struggled with initially but now that I've made placements and have income in the pipeline I see the long term potential as a business owner. Nothing comes easy and fast but the long term potential for this to be my final career and enjoy the quality of life that I want is absolutely here if you are willing to work for it. Make sure that you have allocated personal funds to support you for 6 to 9 months after starting recruiting as it will take some time for your income stream to build. If you are a career restaurant manager and want to stay close to the industry but be your own boss with a better quality of life....This is for you!
I see no Cons if you are willing to follow the system that Patrice & Associates has built. If you try to go rouge....you will struggle. Make sure that you have allocated personal funds to support you for 6 to 9 months after starting as it will take some time for your income stream to build. This was my largest frustration starting out.
