Very Rewarding and Professional Experience. It's a shame that any anonymous person can say anything on GlassDoor.

I have been working at Patrice & Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This model is great for people that are willing to work and are not looking for a get rich quick scheme. If you are structured and have zero phone reluctance then you will be successful. Those that work make a great income. Those that don't want to work complain on GlassDoor,

Cons

There are no Cons. No other franchise model provides a year long training program including one on one with Patrice, mentoring with successfully franchisees and third-party Executive Coaching.,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to figure out a way to stop anonymous people from posting unsubstantiated information on GlassDoor. Obviously people who have either failed or a competitor are trying to tarnish our brand. Most recent post - we don't have and never had a recruiter or franchisee in Anchorage Alaska. The posting is completely bogus.

I agree 100%. I sometimes feel like we are "held hostage" by the internet where anyone, for any reason, can write anything, true or not just to be vindictive. It is also a place where competitors ... More

    Pros

    Great work from home opportunity where you can create your own hours and work/life balance. However, don't misunderstand that it is part-time--you can create your own hours, but still must work 40+ hours per week for the system to work.

    Cons

    Franchisor more interested in selling franchises than growing the business in a way that benefits the entire organization. Unethical practices abound in many areas of company.

    People are posting anonymously because they fear the wrath of the franchisor. Some of the people who are posting positive reviews are existing franchisees or employees who fear her wrath if they don't do it. Do your research--there are many more failed franchisees than "successful" ones--and ask what is considered "successful""--i.e. how much money can really be made.--not what franchisor tells you.

    Do not just call the people franchisor gives you the names of--check the internet for names of other franchisees--existing and closed. You will get a truer picture. Don't be surprised if they do not want to speak with you. They have been told not to talk to anyone unless they have been chosen by franchisor and given permission to speak to prospective franchisees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving your system before bringing on new people. Be honest with how much money can really be made, or improve the quality of the jobs retained so that making a placement is easier and more profitable. Don't just go after the low hanging fruit.

    I appreciate your comments and our Discovery Process encourages everyone to do research. In the Franchise Agreement all franchisees, past and present, are listed. Everyone is provided with as much ... More

    Pros

    If you like working at home and making no money...it's great!

    Cons

    Deception, too many hours far too little money, franchise fee is a total RIPOFF! They claim to have "great" relationships with hiring companies but in reality they are one of MANY recruiters submitting resumes. You are literally competing against everyone in not only Patrice and Associates, but every company and person who has a Monster or CareerBuilder account. Unrealistic business model. Not ONE franchisee that I worked with is still there---NOT ONE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop scamming people out of franchise fees---you are only a glorified job board
