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

    Pros

    - For me, I like talking to people and I get to talk to incredibly intelligent people on a daily basis.
    - Compensation is good; you won't find many recruiting companies starting you at the base that Epitec offers, then there's commissions as well as monthly incentives to earn more cash or extra stuff if you hit your goals.
    - Opportunity to work at home full-time if you're not local to Michigan.
    - Culture is young and vibrant. Managers want to help you improve and will talk to you like a person rather than a number.

    Cons

    - Recruiting can be tough work, and it's certainly not for everyone.
    - You're on a phone at a desk all day. If you're not okay talking on the phone to someone you've never met for 20-30 min at a time, this job isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing; mix things up and promote accordingly. So far, so good.

    Pros

    They provided you with food that you paid for once a week.

    Cons

    People are awful. No one is treated right. If they don’t like you, they call you to “talk” and say “we are letting you go” with no reasons, nothing.

    Advice to Management

    If you’re firing someone, give them a reason so they can better themselves at their next place of employment.

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

    Pros

    To any one who is interested in Epitec or just starting somewhere I would advise you to really give the company a chance-- don't just judge your opportunity by a few negative reviews-- you never know until you experience for yourself what a company can offer you.-- honestly all the companies I've worked at had some negative reviews too but what place doesn't?!

    Anyways here are MY PROS!

    Management is approachable, they talk to you and not at you. They see you as a person not just a number. I can laugh with them and be myself I don't need to be all uptight and proper all the time. They appreciate us!

    Work Culture/Environment: upbeat, young, competitive, not your regular call center vibe- it's better than that- you set your own goals and go at your own pace. Success in this business is in your hands.

    Good Salaray+Bonuses+ Incentives: I can't say how many shoes brand names too (Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, etc) I've added to my collection because of hitting my goals, also how many gift cards and extra cash that I've collected-- and this is just because I do my job :)

    +President Club: the option to go on a paid trip to a resort if you hit your goals)- this year is the Bahamas!

    Visiting client and lunching with managers/ employees: the opportunity to learn more about the people you work with and having conversations that lead to more than just work is VERY fulfilling.)

    Celebrating birthdays/anniversaries for internal/external : Epitec recognizes and appreciates you whether you work internally or externally. It's nice to be appreciated and remembered.

    Epitec Tech Team: these people have made all our jobs easier and more efficient by the processes they come up with and the system changes they put in place. I am very thankful for their help!

    I probably can think of something else but this is all I got for now! :)

    Cons

    Recruiting is a roller coaster: so you do have to have tough skin to push through your obstacles. But no worries you are given a team willing to help you push through :)

    Advice to Management

    Continue with incentives! Continue communicating to employees that you are willing to listen and help!
    I love gift cards :)

    I worked at Epitec full-time

    Pros

    Nice coffee machine I guess

    Cons

    Management makes employees write positive reviews, very close minded people, asked to follow unethical business practices, lazy training, empty promises, worst compensation in the entire recruiting field (if you don’t believe me apply literally anywhere else), random mass firing of employees, extreme favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the entire company or run fast this is a turn and burn factory

    Pros

    Epitec is a great company to work for! You can really tell they really care about their employees. They are always making changes to make your work place better and make sure you enjoy your job!

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working with Epitec but rather some difficulties you run into with the job. This is a very fast paced industry so you have to move fast if you want to find the best candidates before your competitors get to them.

    Pros

    Coming in with some staffing industry experience, I find Epitec’s delivery process amazing. Epitec has awesome clients that make candidates excited to talk to you! The ATS is super easy to work with.. and honestly the best I’ve ever worked with! The leadership is super nice and they want to see you succeed.

    Come in with a goal-oriented, competitive, work hard-play hard attitude and you’ll see success with Epitec!

    Cons

    The commission structure is not the best compared to some other agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
