    Pros

    Free food, top compensation, awesome coffee, beautiful offices, collaborative work environment, technology is first rate. Love the free food!

    Cons

    High turnover may be a result of the highly competitive industry and pay for performance environment. Newer employees may have a difficult time initially depending on prior work experience, education and passion for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire wisely and keep feeding us!

    Pros

    Recruiting is not for everyone Epitec is a very good place to start you career and build your self as a recruiter

    Cons

    The turnover sucks. I believe it comes from people not understanding what they need to do. It is important to try your hardest to have success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mmm less food your making me fat just kidding we love it. It would be nice to have a power hour breaks or something to get the blood flowing when sourcing and getting people out the door. you get exhausted and it would be nice to have a way to refresh

    I have been working at Epitec

    Pros

    It's really hard to think of pros. The environment is so toxic the managers make you feel extremely uncomfortable by starring you up and down - maybe if you paid your employees more they could wear designer clothes like you!

    Cons

    Management is super fake. They act friendly to your face but then gossip about you in the weekly management meeting. They Hire young employees who don't have a family so they are pressured to work late and not get paid for it. They use you and then throw you away.

    Stop writing all of the reviews on Glassdoor! We all know the COO writes all the positive reviews.

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    The company doesn't do a good job of giving you time to adjust to the position. They expect you to hit six submittals per week which in theory doesn't seem like a lot but learning a position & getting comfortable doing the job takes time. I joined during a time when business was slow & I still was expected to produce the same numbers as senior recruiters. You are expected to stay late & work weekends to hit those numbers. This is ridiculous to me because the job doesn't compensate employees to do so. The company needs to realize for $30k a year (about $14) to college grads isn't enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow new employees time to adjust to the position and pay more. I also do not advise hiring in new ppl in when business is slow. Employees already place enough pressure on themselves to perform without the added stress of managers making us feel inadequate.

    I have been working at Epitec full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This was my first "full-time" position out of college, and it has been extremely rewarding in terms of personal and professional growth. Their training program is excellent; I learned a lot from the first couple weeks, and I'm still receiving continuous education weekly. Their training manager is top notch and always available when you need her. On top of that, I have interaction with management daily, and they're always available as well. As long as you're able to take feedback positively, and turn your energy into hard work, you'll do awesome here. There's also a TON of incentives/commission if you meet your goals - they add up fast, too! It's extremely refreshing to feel like an asset to a company, and Epitec does that. Some other perks: A lot of free food, free events (we went to the Detroit Auto Show last week), free manicures once every few months... need I say more?

    Cons

    The only reason I gave it four stars is because the base salary is lower than expected out of college ("The survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers showed the average salary of new grads at $44,455").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time - keep up the communication between recruiters and management! It's extremely helpful.

    Pros

    Very proactive in the process. Provide clear directions as to what the hiring company is looking for, how to get to the interview and even meet you there to ensure everything will go smoothly. The pay and benefits package is very good.

    Cons

    Once they have placed you in a position, it doesn't appear they keep in touch with you to see how it is going. That would be a nice touch.

    Keep up the good work!

    Eptiec has experience in a variety of industries and companies and can provide opportunities across a wide spectrum.
