​​​​One of the nation’s best places to live.​​

Mountains to the west, beaches to the east, and a vibrant city in between, bring young professionals and growing families to Cary, North Carolina. Cary is the state’s sixth-largest city and is located between Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, an area consistently ranked among the best regions in the country to live, work and play.

​​Get out and about.​​

The Raleigh/Cary network of communities are an interesting blend of historic, tree-lined streetscapes and energetic urban life. Each has its own pace and influences, from walkable shopping and dining centers with a small-town feel, to the faster-paced entertainment districts where students and professors from seven area colleges and major universities contribute to the diverse mix of people and points of view.

Outdoor recreational choices are almost endless in this part of the Southeast, where four distinct but temperate seasons offer 220 days of sunshine annually. Take a weekend to bike or hike through the Blue Ridge Mountains or head for some of the country’s best beaches at the Outer Banks; both are less than three hours away. Closer to home, explore the trails and parks in Cary’s extensive greenway system, or kayak the local lakes and rivers.

Work and live well.

Well-deserved accolades for the area touch on every aspect of the local quality of life, from the reasonable cost of living to favorable employment and housing markets. Families with children have access to an exceptional school system, with Raleigh ranked first among public schools with 300,000-plus people and Cary third among cities with a population from 100,000 to 300,000. Housing choices run the gamut from hip downtown condos, to outlying suburban neighborhoods. Education, health and government are the three largest industries in the area, which is also internationally known for thriving high-tech companies, including a concentration of more than 30 video game development companies.​​​

​​Epic Games offers an outstanding benefits package to eligible employees:

  • Epic paid medical and dental insurance for employees and dependents
  • Epic paid life, accidental death & dismemberment and long term disability insurance
  • 401(k) plan with generous match and profit sharing
  • Paid vacation and sick leave are unlimited (with approval)

  • Flexible work hours

    Great benefits and perks - they value their employees and treat them with respect. Also, you are held accountable for your own work, which means everyone there strives to do his/her best.


    In my opinion, there were no cons, except that there was no room for growth in my particular field. I was always treated as a member of the team, and I loved it.

    Video Production Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Games (Cary, NC) in August 2015.


    Whole process took about 2 1/2 weeks. My contact was very responsive and I never waited more than 2 or 3 days to hear back about the next step. After I'd submitted my resume I received an e-mail within a couple of days to set up a phone interview with a recruiter, which was very pleasant. I heard back a few days later that they wanted me to come to the office to meet the hiring manager. Everyone was very friendly and positive, which only made me want the position more! They told me I would hear back soon. Within another few days I was asked to come back to meet with 5 different pairs of people from different departments I would potentially be dealing with. I was told this would take around 3 1/2 hours. Again, everyone was quite friendly and, while it certainly was a tad overwhelming to be interviewed over and over in such a small span of time, I found the overall experience to be just fine, as well as extremely efficient. I also was given the specifics about benefits before I left. I was told again that I would hear back soon. I left after being in their office just under 4 hours. I did not get an offer, but the entire interview process was quick, painless (besides not getting an offer, of course) and one of the better ones I've been a part of, which only made it worse when I didn't get it! I'm hoping to be considered for a position in the future.
