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

    Pros

    Learn to work with difficult people. Learn that “recruiting” (AppleOne) is only about the bottom dollar... only looking out for yourself... even though you are in a business to help other people in their career journey....

    Cons

    I wish I new before I got hired. High turnover. In 6 months I saw 5 people come and go... and not by choice... but bullied into “you aren’t meeting performance standards” meaning you aren’t bringing any money fast enough... even if you are still in training....so on to the next one.

    Advice to Management

    Management is terrible. For all the slogans they use... they sure don’t believe in those slogans in regards to their OWN employees. “Hiring made Human” “We believe in People.” I beg to differ with these statements. For an employement agency... they should realize that their employees should come first.

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

    Pros

    - They try to set you up with information before interviews by going over what the employer is looking for, how you should dress, the type of questions they may ask, etc.

    - They give tips on interview etiquette.

    - They interview you first to see what kind of work you are looking for and to get a sense of your personality.

    Cons

    POOR COMMUNICATION.

    I feel like I was set up for failure.

    - They completely dropped the ball on an assignment I was at and regardless of my attempts to communicate to report the issues, they didn't respond for a long time. Once they did respond, they weren't proactive in fixing the problem. It was extremely frustrating.

     The job description given did not match the actual job duties that were performed. The other temps working there (also with AppleOne) complained about the same issue. AppleOne had no idea that the employer was asking us to do things that required training and certification (the employer was also taking advantage of the temp staff because of this.) I was told I had to report to a manager but there was no management working there. I reported my concerns because the employer was breaking privacy laws but AppleOne did not respond.

    - If it wasn't for the lack of communication and support, I wouldn't have "left" this agency. I wish they would have helped me find a better position instead of ignoring me.

    - The pay is terrible. I know it's not entirely their choice but I wish they would advocate more for their employees as far as compensation goes.

    Advice to Management

    Although this is one of the better agencies I've worked with, I think there should be more help for employees that present evidence of a client that is sketchy. I also would have appreciated to have my concerns acknowledged and help being placed in a more suitable role.

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

    Pros

    -Amazing team to work with on a daily basis
    -Awesome branch and regional managers
    -Benefits are offered, Med/Den/Vis/Life, 401k, PTO
    -Training department that is available all the time to help
    -Executives are wonderful, attentive, involved
    -Frequent gatherings with all the offices in the region
    -So many other positive things to say about this place. I love it.

    Cons

    -It's exhausting! Personally, I like the challenge and I'm never bored so this is not really a con.
    -The work/life balance isn't what a lot of people want but it's really up to each individual to accomplish. Again, this is not a real con for me because I really like what I'm doing.

    Note: This job really isn't for everyone. It's challenging and requires patience and the ability to listen and learn from others. Other reviews mention micromanagement. I don't really see it as micromanaging, the training program is structured, absolutely. But it's structured that way for a reason and it works if you follow the model. If you don't, the business is really hard to build. This is why people end up making cold calls.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work, thank you for everything!
