    I am very fortunate to be a part of this organization. Culture has changed since I first began and for the better! I am proud to be an Applied employee and encourage others to join our organization. I have made several referrals over the years and they have all stayed and been glad they joined us. Many people think that the grass is greener on the other side. I'm here to tell you, it isn't. Every company has it's ups and downs. Applied has many more ups than there are downs and for that I'm grateful. I look forward to coming to work. My relationships with my co-workers are friendships that will last a long time even past our days at Applied. We have a great story here. Built literally from the ground up and are now the leader in our industry. We the people here at Applied, ARE Applied. Our customers know it, our management team knows it. This truly is a great place to work!


    In the past, salary has been an issue, however, I see Applied working hard to bring everyone up to market value and more. Below market value was former Applied, not current Applied. I see progress happening! You may not get paid as high as if you were in the city, however, there are SO many other perks for not working in the city that you get here to make up for the work/life balance you won't get in the city or other high paying jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to those that make this company what it is. I see things happening to celebrate the people who ARE Applied and it is fantastic!

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Applied Systems.


    Was reached out by the recruiter on linked, followed by a 30 minute call with him - which went very well. He asked me to fill out the application some questionnaire. Filled out the lengthy application and the vonderlic questionnaire which took a while. Recruiter never reached out to me after that. I emailed him to follow up - no response. Very unprofessional.
