    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AppleOne (Las Vegas, NV) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Filled out paperwork online, came in for the interview and watched a safety awareness video.
    Met with recruiter who seemed really interested in other opportunities for me. Really focused on my background in sales and led me to other employment options. Great feeling that this person took the time to see what my true strengths opposed to placing me in something safe and not challenging. Scheduling a second interview and very excited to start work internally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AppleOne (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I have interviewed at a few of their different locations. When I applied for their jobs they posted, I was called by their locations for these jobs to come interview for them because they were "interested." I went in under the idea that I would actually be interviewing for the particular job I applied for, as that is what was discussed over the phone.

    NOT!

    They call you into their location, you are immediately handed a packed of dozens of pages to sign, all asking for your personal information, social security number, address, and contracts to sign, etc. Then you are told to take a TYPING TEST at that moment ( I was NOT previously notified about ANY tests needing to be taken; as this was not listed under any of the job postings). They have a disgusting habit of advertising salaries such as 40k, 50k, 60k, but when you are in their office, they are offering more like $10-$13 an hour. That is NO WHERE NEAR the advertised salaries.

    One location didn't even have my resume, thank god I brought more copies.

    They ask for multiple references ON TOP of having to mandatorily put all contact information for all supervisors you have previously worked for. NO they do not let you choose if they can or CANNOT contact them. that's at least 3-4 contacts there, then they as for at LEAST 4 MORE professional references. I spent weeks with some recruiters trying to tell them how over a span of 10+ years of work, its almost impossible to give them a list of every single employee of supervisor I have worked with, name, EMAIL, NUMBER, JOB TITLE, AND LOCATION. I don't have that type of information for some close friends and relatives, let alone employees I barely even spoke to, or have not had any contact with in over a DECADE.

    LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING AT LEAST 7 phone numbers, email addresses, JOB TITLES, and THE COMPANY NAME of every reference (people I do keep in contact with did not even feel comfortable enough to hand out such personal information.)

    Anyways, after being called in to "interview for the job I applied for" (different jobs different appleone locations all did the same thing -__-) I was never even interviewed for the jobs I applied for. Never heard anything, or discussed ANYTHING about the actual jobs I applied for.

    INSTEAD, I was asked about what "companies I can see myself working for, who I have applied to, what fields would I like to work in" all I could think was what the hell, I applied for jobs you posted, you called me in to interview about NOTHING!

    after all of these interviews at the appleone locations, ALL OF THEM ENDED with no job, no offers, no discussion of the dozens of careers I sent my application/resume in for, NOTHING.

    MY TIME WAS GREATLY WASTED.

    It has been over a month, I am still waiting for a "job" I don't even receive emails, or their promised weekly calls they all were so adamant that they do. (calling weekly for information about potential jobs, etc)

    how is this a job agency or temp agency with hundreds of jobs and dozens of companies working with them as they put it, and I have still had NO contact and no offers about any job or career.

    such a scam. everything on their site is a LIE.

    oh and on top of that, I had to watch a video about their company, and take 3 more tests.

    STILL NO ASSIGNMENTS!

    Note to company:

    when you call people in to "interview them for the job they applied for" ACTUALLY INTERVIEW THEM for that job!

    post on all you job postings that as an agency they will be called first, and forced to take multiple exams.

    let them know the jobs they applied for, clearly DONT EXIST.

    stop telling people you will call them weekly when YOU DONT.

    stop advertising salaries, when you are offering minimum wage. $10-13 an hour is no where near 50-60k a year. not even close to the MINIMUM salary amount you post.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Huntington Beach, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at AppleOne (Huntington Beach, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Very easy, however my interview ran longer because they couldn't find the application I had filled out online. I had to fill it out again, which took an extra half hour. The entire process ended up taking me 3 hours. They had several positions available that I am currently interviewing for, one specifically that I am very interested in.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any. It was a very simple interview process, they are very interested to know exactly what type of position you feel you would be most suited for, be detailed in letting them know for the best fit.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AppleOne (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    They had you test for your proficiency, had you view a safety video and then you met with one of their staffing personnel. There was really not much else to add. The process was informal, the testing was easy and once the interview was over, I had to really be proactive in order to even be considered for the one assignment I was offered. They are really bad with follow up.

    Interview

    I applied online and set up an interview for the following week. I was called the next morning and asked a few questions about my work experience. I have never held a job with the job title of administrative assistant (I had employees that had that job title) and so I was told that they were cancelling my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AppleOne (Columbia, SC) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Don't even waste your time. They "collect all the information" send you to only one interview, and if that is not a match, you get filed in the back of a very deep bucket. Then they annoy you throughout the year, and "suddenly" they just possibly have a job that you "might fit" and send you really annoying emails. And you have to keep them informed weekly as to your status.
