Mission: At Nextep, our employees work every day to elevate the employment experience and enrich people’s lives. We take that endeavor seriously and extend that spirit of enrichment to business owners, their employees, and each other.
Our dedication to using technology to enhance customer service paid off this year, earning Nextep The Future Now Award. Read all about it!
At Nextep, we understand the importance of family and personal time. That's why we've implemented a new policy that includes paid maternity leave, paternity leave, elder care, extended bereavement, and allows for flexible scheduling.
Our people are our most important asset and we appreciate the important roles they fill, both at work and at home.
I left a publicly-traded PEO in 1996 with a dream of doing it differently. My goal was to give my clients the best of both worlds; the benefits and state-of-the-art technology that large companies have to offer, and the personal service and flexibility that smaller companies deliver. We’ve grown over the years, and we’ll continue to grow, but I’ve never lost sight of that dream. It’s still what I’m passionate about today.
– Brian Fayak
In the summer of 1996, Fayak migrated from the world of a publicly-traded company to a world where he was a one-man organization: the operations team, the sales team, and the owner.
Since those humble beginnings, Nextep has grown to be one of the premier professional employer organizations in the industry, with clients across the country.
Today, Nextep continually performs above industry averages in client retention, and still maintains the entrepreneurial spirit that drove our company from the start. We are exceptionally gratified to have the opportunity to work on an intimate level with business owners who are pursuing their dreams.
In sales, you have the opportunity to meet with entrepreneurs and business owners, hear their struggles and successes, and strategize to help their companies not only survive, but thrive by partnering with Nextep.
You can make a real difference for a business owner and his or her employees.
Whether a seasoned professional or new in your career, Nextep’s support, training, and resources for our salespeople is unparalleled.
Our most successful business consultants are highly organized, value constructive feedback, and have the hunger to find, nurture, and close new business opportunities. You will be part of a supportive team that celebrates each others’ success and has the drive to consistently exceed goals.
Your success is highly valued and rewarded.

Our corporate headquarters are designed with our employees' ultimate comfort and productivity in mind. We're passionate about being a great place to work, all the way from our company's culture to the coffee we drink.
We realize it’s a lofty statement, but it serves as our compass. It drives every business decision we make, every phone call we answer, and every employee we hire.
At the core of our business is our people.
Whether clients, employees, or even our vendors, we’re passionate about enriching people’s lives. Our purpose at Nextep is to serve our people’s needs ahead of our own; to position them for greatness.
What you see is what you get. From billing to internal meetings, we’re committed to deserving the trust you place in us. Integrity and honesty are integral to our culture; we expect it from our employees and we exhibit it every day in our business practices.
Nextep was built on entrepreneurial drive and enthusiasm. We embrace change and thrive on our ability to take quick action. We want less red tape and more changes that matter. Our ambitious beginning reminds us that we all have a stake in the business’s success.
When our people win, we celebrate. People do great things at work every day and we don’t take those victories for granted. We’re our people’s biggest fans and have fun doing it. We’re ready to root them on, cheer at the top of our lungs, and help them get to the finish line.
We offer an extremely generous and competitive benefits package. Nextep pays 100% of family coverage for medical, dental, and vision insurance, sponsors life insurance, and offers 401(k) matching.
Paid time off, birthday holidays, and Nextep-sponsored charitable services are just another benefit, giving you peace of mind and a chance to give back to the community.
We're committed to your career development, and offer extensive training programs, customer service refreshers, sponsorship of trade association membership and meetings, and opportunities for advancement.
These are just a few of the perks of working with Nextep:
I have been working at Nextep full-time (Less than a year)
Before I came to Nextep, I never knew I could love a job so much. This is the second company I have worked for and the differences are night and day. I thought I worked at a good company before because they offered a generous benefits package. But there is so much more to it than that. At Nextep I am happy to come to work, and most importantly I am happy when I come home from work. I can honestly say there has never been a day where I have questioned my job or Nextep. The people and culture are beyond amazing. The support I have been shown by both leadership and peers has been enormous, and there is always a sense of excitement around for what comes next. There are so many opportunities for us to volunteer and give back to the community. Since I started I've had the opportunity to volunteer at the Myriad Gardens Pumpkinville and Ronald McDonald House (and get paid for it)! As any company does, we have our crazy busy time of year, but Nextep does everything they can to make it easy on us. From catering lunch, snack carts, themed days, and movies and other activities to give us a break from the stress. We always tell our new hires, "Welcome to the greatest place on Earth", and we mean it.
I honestly can't think of one.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! And keep up the committees. I think part of the reason we all love it so much is because we have a say in what goes on around here.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nextep (Norman, OK) in October 2017.
Once I applied for the position, one of the Senior Recruiters reached out to me and asked me a few questions about how I heard about the position, what interested me about the position and the company, and when I would be available for a phone interview.
Within the next few days, I completed the phone interview which was a fairly high-level interview regarding my sales experience, career milestones, and qualifications. The job was described a little bit more in detail, and I was told that I was moving on to the next phase.
The next step was an at-home video interview, where there were 10 questions recorded by different Nextep team members. The interview was at-your-own-pace, however there were limits on answer time and the number of times you could respond to the question. This was a fun chance to "see" some of the people who I could work with, and the questions seemed aimed at getting to know personality and behavior.
Several days after submitting, I was notified that I would have an interview with who would be my boss - the Regional Sales Manager. This interview went well, and it was focused on my qualifications for the job based on my track record in sales, what I knew about Nextep, and my personality. I was told in the interview that I would be moving on to a final interview with executives - the VP of Sales and the Chief Sales & Marketing Officer.
A few days later, I interviewed with the VP of Sales, who focused again on my credentials in sales and how well I would fit in at Nextep.
It was a really great interview process. You can tell from the very beginning that Nextep places an immense amount of weight on the people they hire - the recruiters encourage you, give you help preparing for the interviews so that you can focus on letting personality and qualifications shine through. I was certainly honored to receive an offer and to join the team!
