    Bad benefits, low wage and not keep promise

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsThe recruiter is nice and helpful. HR always response quickly.

    ConsPoor benefits. Everything is costly, like paid holidays(2 dollars off hourly pay). No sick day off. Expensive medical plan, written in semi monthly cost. Should have everything written in the contract when getting hired! Promise to ask for the hiring company for money to cover the application of working visa for international employee. Turn out to be you should have put down at least 4 dollars of your hourly pay to ask us you apply the working visa for you when it's about the time to start apply. Have to miss this year and apply next year and take the risk of only one time lottery in H1B CAP. Don't care employee's royalty at all, too mean to money. Get lower paid, less (no) benefit, less care than colleagues from other contract company. Choose a another one if you can.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Please call me when you have a moment. My direct dial is 248-864-7121, Mark Ruma. The cost of holidays and the cost of insurance in the review is inaccurate. Let me see if there is a way for us to ... More

    Good things and Areas for Improvement

    Business Manager (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    Pros-Easy, online e-signing of paperwork.
    -Kudos program for contractors who are recognized on their assignment.
    -HR is very responsive to questions.
    -I was taken out for an introductory lunch which was a nice touch.
    -Event outings and family event outings are offered and well advertised.
    -Referral bonus offered and is generous.
    -Welcome, birthday and annviersary cards are encouraging and help you feel like you aren't just a number or dollar sign for the company.

    Cons-Both of the recruiters that I worked with at the beginning are gone and I don't know who to go to other than HR if I have an issue to discuss.
    -The dental and eye insurance are affordable but the medical is very expensive for contractors. I've had to shop for insurance myself and its hard when you have a pre existing condition.
    -The only way to get holiday pay is to agree to make less money an hour.

    Advice to Senior Management-Find more affordable health care options for contractors.
    -Find a way to give some paid vacation time to contractors. I've worked for temp agecies in the past and they would give a week's vacation to employees that worked a certain amount of hours. Something like that would be nice and keep contractors coming back.
    -Make sure there is a back-up person to keep in contact with contractors if their original reruiter quits or gets fired (which seems to happen a lot from what I've seen from other reviews). I had to find out from LinkedIn that my original recruiter was gone and with another company and same with the second recruiter I spoke to.

    Overall my experience with Epitec has been a good one. I was able to tell when my last recruiter was getting ready to leave because level of service diminished but I also remember being in my early 20's and I know how it goes. HR does a great job following out and is very helpful. If Epitec could improve on any of the items that I list as Cons I would be an extremely happy employee.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Internal Delivery

    Delivery (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsThe company is one that allows an individual to come in at the bottom and increase responsibilities very quickly. Always opportunity for a recruiter or account manager to step up and get recognized for their actions.

    ConsThe stigma of very high turnover. No company would want to keep an employee around that is lazy, unhappy, lacks work ethic, or doesn't care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Epitec is a company that will be around for a long time to come, and has the ability to become a national powerhouse in the staffing world.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    HOT Industry---Forward Thinking Company

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsThe company is constantly looking at areas to improve its position at its customers and to improve its employee experience. They are making strides in new client development locally and nationally and will need more internal staff to support these efforts. I'm all in for a better future. They also have some really great tools, training and incentives programs for their sales and recruiting team members. Just got a black friday shopping spree --- whoa!!!!!

    ConsNo bodies perfect, but you should expect some turnover. They hire often and not everyone's cut out for sales and the performance expectations of the their big clients.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe very clear on expectations for new hires, some people just don't get it!!!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
