    Pros

    Working at Alpaytac will give you the best "hands-on" education of the PR and Marketing Business. Employees learns all aspects of the business and the emphasis is on learning how be successful in all areas from writing and research to client and media relations to team building and creative thinking. Whether you are just out of college or a seasoned professional, Alpaytac challenges everyone to learn and grow. I particularly love that the company has a strong internship program that focuses not only on education, but hands-on experience and that many of the junior staff have begun their careers as interns and stayed on and quickly worked their way up the ranks. There are also fun monthly contests where employees are financially rewarded for for their accomplishments.

    Cons

    Alpaytac has many big clients that require a lot of attention. This can sometimes mean long days to keep up with deliverables. The management tries to keep these days to a minimum and is willing to compensate the hard work with incentives like flex days. Must be a focused worker with a strong desire to be successful in this field to be good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees and implement positive changes to help the company work as efficiently as possible.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Alpaytac, Inc. in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I sent an email to the general HR email on the website and was contacted a month later for an in-person interview. Walking in I didn't like the atmosphere. Everyone was working right in front of where I was waiting, and they were gossiping with each other so that I could hear everything. It just seemed unprofessional to me. The interviewers were nice and the position seemed like you would learn a lot if you wanted PR experience. I withdrew my candidacy, however, because the pay was way too low for the hours worked. It was a monthly stipend and you were expected to work full-time hours with some overtime. This was unrealistic especially with the city expenses.
