    Pros

    If you're looking for a temporary job to make a few bucks here and there, then this is the job for you. Do not feed into the false hope Epitec managements tries to feed you. THERE IS NO CAREER GROWTH. Only a very small handful of recruiters have been there 2+ years. The rest quit or are terminated. The handful of recruiters keep to their selves because they realized it was pointless to interact with new recruiters because they won't be there long. Frankly, I don't even blame them. They have decent work space and give free food occasionally.

    Cons

    Management lacks decency of good work ethics and morals. Favoritism is exuded among the management and they are very quick to point the blame on current and former employees (recruiters). Immense lack of professionalism. Management makes inappropriate comments/jokes during company meetings and using profanity is second nature to them.

    Management demands more time (more than 40 hours) from their employees, but do not want to compensate for it. Of all the places I've worked, I have felt the least appreciated, most mistreated, and most displeased by this group of management. Turn over is unbelievably high. There is no work life balance.

    It's definitely understood that recruiting may not be for everyone. How about the good ones? Plenty of great, hard working recruiters with a lot of experience were terminated due to "restructuring" while plenty of mediocre recruiters with hardly any experience were kept.

    It just seems the intent for management is to keep very entry level low salary recruiters instead of keeping recruiters that gain seniority and have to give them a pay raise eventually... I guess it also must be financially gaining, to not have to pay any part of the well deserved commission to the recruiters if terminated even though they worked very hard to place the candidate they build such a strong relationship with for weeks, sometimes even months.

     I wouldn't recommend ANYONE looking to start a career in recruiting/sales/HR to work for this company. Neither would I recommend any consultants to work for this company unless you're looking for a stepping stool or a temporary job. I would say beat them to it. Work the few months you need to to gain whatever experience you need and find a more stable and secure company to work with. :)

    Advice to Management

    You're definitely right. This line of work isn't for everyone. However, there are plenty of companies in the staffing industry that are far more successful and far bigger only because management was strong, loyal, honest and decent. Try the whole loyalty and honesty thing... it may finally make Epitec a decent place to work it someday.
