    I worked at AppleOne full-time

    Pros

    I love helping people get jobs and would love to stay in staffing! Despite the dysfunction I looked forward to coming to work!

    Cons

    I was at my previous job 14 years and was a decorated salesman. I was new to staffing and just started 6 weeks ago as a recruiter. I loved it immediately! I liked working with people and their future. This particular branch lost a ton of money last year and I looked forward to the challenge of being a key part of the turnaround. What happened? I pounded the phones and made things happen. I submitted 7 people just Mon-Tues of this week alone. Friday I get called in after lunch and let go? Why? I had complained about the vast amount of paperwork a few times. We only had 4-5 clients and they'd take 2 weeks to ask for an interview after we brought the candidate in. Background checks would take another 1.5 weeks so guess what happened to our qualified applicants in the meantime? They found another job. Our branch manager was lazy and disorganized. She'd spend more time talking about what she wanted to eat then actually working the phones. I just don't understand why you bring someone in and provide minimum training and then let them go after 6 weeks? Especially when they just brought in nearly half the candidates on your payroll in a month and a half? Insane? This company must love to lose money? I went to a few other staffing companies as a candidate and didn't have to fill out a mountain of paperwork and wait a month?

    Advice to Management

    Bernie's 5 principles were great.....key word being WERE! This is 2019 and you can't compete with 4 clients offering 6-7 jobs while others have 25 clients offering 3 pages full of jobs. They're literally expecting someone to wait a month on a job paying $14.50 an hour and is for a 3 month contract. Thats not happening. Be realistic. This branch is on their 3rd branch manager in 3 years and she's not making it thru the year either? Ridiculous?

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

    Pros

    I received the best training which resulted in my success in the position. Lots to do, always busy (was a pro for me, hated being bored), nicest people to work with. Teamwork really made the dream work there. My bosses encouraged growth and set me up for success. I have remained in contact with both my bosses.

    Cons

    Benefits were very slim. Paid time off was very standard. Could not be 5 minutes late without getting the stare. Kept me on my toes with being responsible.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more pay for this role - they are the core of the office! Especially if they are happily performing this role properly.

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

    Pros

    The office looks professional and the employees seem nice.

    Cons

    Every email they sent looked like spam mail and was unprofessional. It took them two months and three phone calls to enroll me in direct deposit because the person I originally gave my information to never sent it to anyone and I assume just forgot about me. I did not receive my W2 on time and I had to call and email them more than four times to make sure that I was getting my duplicate W2. When I called the corporate office, they said that they did not receive my duplicate request form until over a month after I sent it to the Riverside office I assume because that person also forgot about me.

    Advice to Management

    Have more professional email titles. Read all of your emails and don't forget about them.

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

    Pros

    You pick up some good tips and you are given a chance to grow and learn from others.

    Cons

    They have blind faith in a system that was implemented by the President over 30 years ago and that is deemed infallible within the company and that no one dares criticize even if they don't agree with it because it's Bernie's business bible (the owner) and which is outdated, especially in saturated cities/markets. People who are happy and give great reviews are employees who are in branch offices that have it easier because their offices have been in the area for a long time and which have tenured client accounts and client loyalty in those areas (repeat customers, if you will) , where as if you end up in a city/area somewhere where Appleone is not dominant, the system proves to be something that may have worked back when the staffing industry wasn't so saturated and there wasn't a staffing agency at every corner. Management still thinks that if you follow the formula that worked 30 yrs ago, you are bound to make it despite offices not being profitable over and over, in addition to having ridicously high turn over because of people leaving after being frustrated because of having to work in a stressful way that they think is ineffective while having to meet stern metrics under this system in a market that is saturated in some areas . The branches that are profitable are those with tenured accounts, but the owners refuse to acknowledge this and force you to spend a great part of your day following the steps to this "secret recipe" (not so secret anymore) instead of allowing account managers to have the freedom to seek new business in more current and creative ways. You are forced to spend a great part of your day cold calling, and scheduling interviews with candidates all day long in order to follow the outdated technique. We ended up with a huge data base of applicants and no jobs to send them to while having to listen to the non-stop preaching of Bernie's technique that you knew needed to be tweeked but that you couldn't. A total set up for failure in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of playing along like hyped-up go getters, stop labeling those who may disagree with the way things are being done as "nay sayers' and pay attention to the real trends in each area and the things that are really keeping Bernie's magical formula from working, especially now that times have changed, competition has increased and do a real and current market analysis and allow account managers to work in a manner that is in-sync with the current market.
