Testimonials

Kimberly Moore

Victoria is an excellent recruiter to hire when in need of restaurant managers. I recently asked Victoria for help in a very tough to hire region and she provided me with great candidates, one of whom we recently hired. What I appreciated most about working with Victoria was she took time to select candidates that met our requirements for the position we were looking to fill. She is also an excellent communicator and always kept me aware of the candidate’s she was submitting for consideration. I highly recommend Victoria for any restaurant concept that is looking for additional recruiting support. She is trustworthy and very reliable and a pleasure to work with.

I have worked with Gecko Hospitality for approximately 5 years and in that time they have displayed nothing less than professionalism, integrity and hard work. They have come through for us on multiple occasions in bringing solid candidates to fit our needs. Gecko Hospitality has done an excellent, consistent job over the years and their dedication, determination and follow-up are exemplary. We have had a great working relationship that I hope will continue for many, many years.

It has been a pleasure working with Larry Friedkin from Gecko Hospitality – it is obvious how deeply he cares about his profession and helping to link candidates to find their best possible next career. Larry has certainly done his research in understanding our company’s needs and interests, and presents timely candidates who often work out and end up being great additions to our bakery-cafes. He is quick to respond, be it setting up interviews, reviewing interview feedback and/or making sure each candidate is treated with respect, dignity, care and timeliness. Larry is conscientious, dedicated and interested to work with us to find the best possible candidates and managers. Our partnership continues to be enjoyable and a success.
