    I have been working at Epitec full-time

    Pros

    Great environement, a lot of oppertunites to make incentives (prizes/cash), paid holidays, vacation, medical. Monday thru Friday day job with making yourself available to candidate outside office hours. Experienece gained with IT/egineering, HR, recruitment, meeting with clients, social skills etc. Great place to gain experience and start a career. If doesn't work at least you know how to build a resume.

    Cons

    Medical is expensive coverage is not the greates esp if you have a family.
    Afforable if you are single( no kids) coverage works great for you.
    Job can be pretty repetive and you may have a streak of bad luck.
    You have to handle the heat because you yourself are responsible to hit your own goals. If not hitting markers than you will have the stress of losing your job. Epitec does promise everything as long as you hitting your goals. This job can be tough for some and turn over is high. Constant anxiety of losing job if not making placements.

    Advice to Management

    Fun, great, encouraging but maybe if they came out straight forward about the turn over rate or your job is not gaureenteed they would have the right Candidates apply. Instead of being quiet about it and everyone seeing the staff change year to year. A lot of employees did not know they were being let go and turn overs cause good recrutiers to lose interest.

    I worked at Epitec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They stuff you with junk food which I Don’t mind, if your looking for a job epitec is a good place to spend your day as your looking for another job, pretty much the senior staff think they are lords and the lower employees are just some peasants lol they cuss a lot too, not professional at all. Oh one thing they take you to shields next door for dinner while your training they introduced me to it shields is good.

    Cons

    Nothing it’s a great job for someone who is looking for another job just go and pass time, make sure you live around southfield thou

    Advice to Management

    Lol, stop treating these new guys like peasants there was this stuck up one from their Texas location he was the head honcho there omg he thinks he is president of the USA geeez

    I worked at Epitec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay for job duties required. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of interaction with company staff (sales rep, HR). They are available by phone, but they did not go out of their way to contact me on any regularity to see how I was doing. No performance reviews or pay increase without my intervention. Vacation and personal time.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with your contracted workers.

    I worked at Epitec full-time

    Pros

    Nothing good to say at all.

    Cons

    They are robots who have no actual feelings and do not care about anyone but themselves.

    There is a reason this company is only rated 3.1 out of 5... and it would be lower if they didn’t make their employees post 5 star reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about others

    I worked at Epitec full-time

    Pros

    The people I trained with were the only trustworthy and reliable kind people in the building

    Cons

    ANY POSITIVE REVIEW YOU READ FOR THIS COMPANY WAS BY A CURRENT EMPLOYEE WHO WAS ORDERED TO DO IT BY MANAGEMENT.
    Where to even begin...
    - You get let go after only a few months of training for "no reason" but its because your numbers aren't high enough
    - You are given almost the same number goals as people who have been there for years when you are fresh out of trying
    - They only train you through 1/4 of the process and hey expect you to just figure out the rest on your own.
    - They value employees that have been there longer more and they don't try to hide it
    - Very unattached managers
    - I was let go by people who i never had one-on-one contact with until I was let go because my manager was to much of a detached robot to do it themselves
    - They expect you to put in 10+ hour work days when numbers are low
