    I worked at Alpha EMC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Only If you need a job. But don't take them seriously they will screw you in the end. You get benefits which are very expensive & you have to wait six months for.

    Cons

    Rarely any employee last more than 6 months. Turn over is unprecedented. HR will promise you the world and make you believe that you will be with them a long time. This is not a place for anyone who has to provide for their family. This is not a place for anyone who has a college degree or any motivation for a lasting career. I really can't believe that this company has any clients left at all. The CEOs- JJ Mandato and Kirk Foster are actually AT&T executives that lost the jobs during the downsizing and both received large severance packages to invest into Alpha. They are niche business so there are not many competitors. All of their clients are forced by the EPA to follow certain guidelines that Alpha provides services for. Alpha puts all of the employees under non-competes basically barring you from working in this field for 2 years after employment. It's really scary. They offer you this great job in the beginning then they conduct a "business review" 6 months in, then they either replace or terminate you. Then your stuck and can't work in the industry for 2 years. Training is nonexistent. The salary or pay wage is way below the average. You will beat your automobile up so bad with high mileage & wear tear your car will be shot in a year if you are lucky enough to still be with Alpha. The CEO Kirk Foster mico manages the entire operation from East Coast to West Coast which causes the sale team to be grinded down. One will submit approved sales proposals to potential clients then you recieve a call from Kirk or one of his personal assistants that change every month telling thou to increase the price by 15% (that's a great way to lose a customer) From the 1st day they will expect you to work 14-15 Hour days, work on Saturday / Sundays, Xmas, Thanksgiving, all holidays & religious holidays. They say that vacation coverage exists but that is a facade. Don't expect to go on vacation. The only one that goes on Vacation is Kirk Foster because you hear about how he drives across country in his RV or goes horse back riding through Tennesee.
    It's embarrassing to say that I have ever worked for a company like this one. Not only has Alpha damaged my good name they have wasted my precious time & money.
