Data Entry Processor Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Volt Information in June 2014.
Interview Details – Staffing agency that tries to find a job for you. Was contracted through email first before scheduling an interview. I then had to complete an online assessment of Microsoft Office and a typing test that took an hour or two to complete. Went down to the Volt building and had to fill out tons of paperwork before finally sitting down for a short 20 minuteinterview.
Interview Question – Name 3 weaknesses you have. It is tough having to name three different weaknesses while trying to avoid hurting your chances of a follow-up interview. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
Senior Director of Employee Benefits Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Volt Information in August 2012.
Interview Details – Initial contact was made by HR Representative via a phone call to schedule an interview. Interview was scheduled within 5-6 hours from initial phone. Arrived to scheduled interview 15 minutes early, was greeted by a receptionist who mispronounced my name. I met with the VP of HR minutes after I arrived, taken to her office, she conducted the interview with the door to her office opened while employees sat outside in cubicles.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question the VP of HR asked me was: " How are employees added or taken off the plans? I did not understand the question. What she was really was trying to find out was when do new hires enter the plan and when are they termed off the plan. View Answer
District Sales Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Volt Information in January 2012.
Interview Details – This is a "workforce consulting" company, but their interview process was horrendous. Regional manager was very excited to set third interview, then disappeared from the face of the planet. No rejection email, phone call, letter, snail mail, skywriting or anything. At least have the courtesy to say you're no longer interested.

Administrative Assistant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Volt Information in May 2012.
Interview Details – I'm a registered job candidate for an indefinite time now, yet I do not not find Volt Jobs resourceful nor effective to battle this ailing economy. How does one go about when there is nothing to offer?? I have never been invited into their physical office, amid their numerous physical global office locations, or been contacted directly by a recruiter. Their job database productive flow is without technical error unlike the standard Taleo or Kenexa recruiting employment platform. However, I encompass a lot of technical positions in my employment search travels.
Interview Question – Have you submitted your resume online? Just go online and do so then a recruiter will contact you. View Answer

Interview Question – Why did you leave your last employer? Answer Question
Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Volt Information in September 2011.
Interview Details – I was interviewed on the phone September 28, asked to come in for interview on Oct 3rd.
Interview went very well I thought. Interviewed with the branch manager and the regional manager.
This next part was the most unprofessional, disrespectful and inconsiderate interview I've ever seen.
After the interview I was told I'd hear about a second interview by the end of the week, Oct 7th, that came and went, that next Tuesday I emailed the manager Oct 11th and asked about the follow up, was told he was still doing interviews and would let me know by the end of the week. That came and went again, I happened to run into the Regional Manager at a concert that next Monday, Oct 17th, he asked if I can been asked to come back for a second interview, told him I had not heard back yet. He then told me that he would talk to the Branch Manager and contact me tomorrow. That didn't happen either. I called Friday Oct 21st, no call back. I called again Monday Oct 24th, I got an email back from the manager this time. He explained that he had tried to call and couldn't get through to my phone (all he needed to do was dial the area code), he asked me to call him back. I did.
We spoke for a few minutes, now I know that if you haven't heard back on an interview in 3 weeks, that's not a good thing. So I already know I didn't get the job, just upset that he didn't have consideration for my time.
The next part I felt was very disrespectful, while on the phone he explained to me why I didn't get the job and that he had filled both positions already. He also went on to explain how he really liked me and that if "I had one more position to fill, I'd hire you" I found that insulting, if I was really that close to getting the position, I'd assume I'd get a second interview, which I did not.
I don't feel this is a Volt issue, just an issue with the Manager in Boise. I found this to be the most negative experience in hiring to date. I've worked in the Staffing industry before and never seen this disregard for other's time.

Very Difficult Interview
Technical Support Representative Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Volt Information in October 2011.
Interview Details – I applied three days ago and have still yet to get anything more then a automated email saying they got my application. I have called and left 3 messages only because I know I AM perfect for this job, but still no call. Very unprofessional, they could at least call and tell me that I wasn't a good candidate instead of leaving me hanging.
Technical Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Volt Information in February 2011.
Interview Details – Long, drawn out and in the end a 62 year old (me) did not get interviewed for a job in which I have nearly 30 years experience because I wasn't "technically" strong enough (by eval of resume). Local staff recognized I would be an asset and fought to hire me. Remote hiring authority would not interview, even by phone. One of his peers did, but that did no good. Started process 11/2010 and the position is still open.
Good company, good local people, very negative mind set of remote manager (who is short term with the firm.)
Volt is a good company to be a contractor thru and a local employee, IF you can become one.
Interview Question – In order to recruit IT personnel, we expect you to be up to date on languages and operating systems. Tell us about your experience. View Answer
Associate Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Volt Information in August 2009.
Interview Details – Had a phone interview with Recruiter and another with the Hiring Manager at the Client company. Got through both and was called for a Group/Panel interview a week later. It was a more technical interview than behavioral, got a call that I got the job next day, but had to wait three weeks for starting to work at the client locations. Background check and Drug tests were done prior to the Panel interview. Overall, the best pay I could get for this job at this skill level and experience with my Client company. Visa sponsorship is done on a need basis due to the negative effects of the recession in 2008 and 2009.
Interview Question – Describe a situation when you were told you were let go and had to work for a month for transitioning pending work and knowledge Answer Question
