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 Management

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

    I worked at Patrice & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

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

    I worked at Patrice & Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a Franchisee- you can say "I own my own business". After many years in the restaurant industry as a manager I felt like with adequate training and help I would succeed as they promised tons of help and training of which you receive extremely little real help. Lots of opinions and direction, but little real world help.

    Cons

    Very little $$ for many hours of work. EXTREMELY HIGH franchisee fee--I lost ALL my money and worked as many hours at this "business" as I did managing corporate restaurants. I believe that if you were able to get the REAL stats, the failure rate is 70+% and most recruiters are quitting because there is very poor leadership. It is all about the MONEY--your franchise fee MONEY!! Impossible to sell your franchise...literally they make it impossible no matter what they tell you.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with perspective Franchisee folks and let them know your REAL failure rate.
