    Pros

    the pros is that there is no pros

    Cons

    they pay you so little, don't even help you find a job after you finish job with them, and also when you find a job on their website and has all the qualifications they don't even want to submit your resume. They seem to put you in short term jobs with low pay which is so unfair

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Volt Information as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    pay was on time every week

    Cons

    compensation was a joke considering my experience.. Representative said they couldn't negotiate pay. I have never worked for an agency that didn't negotiate pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing your people to low ball great employees because it only makes you as a company look bad. worked as a contract employee for 18 months with no raises, no holidy pay, and very little contact with me as their employee as I contracted with their client. Worse agency I have worked for. Rarely showed appreciation to employees who worked for them.

    Pros

    These guys will get you work quickly

    Cons

    Don't pay on time
    Promise to pay but don't give correct checks
    They blame payroll which happens to be in Orange, CA but if you ever get a chance to speak to payroll they will just blame the office. Lots of pointing fingers and no one takes responsibility.
    Bad client service. You would think that when a client has a problem, your recruiter will help you out but the recruiter will just ignore you so you have to find someone else to speak to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some responsibility for your mistakes instead of pointing fingers
    Work for your clients instead of finding ways not to pay them
    Teach your recruiters some customer services skills

    I have been working at Volt Information full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Sadly the only pro to working here is learning how NOT to treat employees in your future roles. It was not always this way, but the last 3 years have seen dramamtic changes.

    Cons

    Leadership is unable to clearly communicate strategy, future goals or how they intend to recover from years of loss (financially). Headcount reductions are the tactic, but a true, non-contracdictory business strategy has not been shared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a moment to put yourself in the position of your employees and not just view the world through financial glasses. There is more to business than money and risk, without the right people and and executable strategy success and improvement are unattainable.

    I worked at Volt Information full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time we had a good internal team.

    Cons

    Not good pay. Again, management wasn't solid at the top levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some real work and listen to your employees who are in the trenches doing the work.

    I have been working at Volt Information full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is alright, and the dress code is business casual, so you don't need to spend your money on a new wardrobe. Additionally, they have benefits available if you work full-time (and are not a temp).

    Cons

    The management has recently become less and less tolerant of illness. Ever since they got back on the stock exchange, they've been trying to become more and more efficient. Unfortunately, the workers are the ones to suffer. We have had about 1 person leaving per week, for around 8 weeks straight...and we've only hired 4 temps, all of whom were relegated to the department nobody has left. We have one team here that has been reduced to two people (an analyst and a manager) who are constantly overloaded when someone is out of office. The management does not care about personal emergencies or personal stress levels. Once they see you can do the work of more than one person they will not give you any help. And if you can't do the work, you get in trouble. God help you if you can't handle the overflow of timecards you have to hand-key! There is no room for growth or advancement here anymore, most of the time you're just stuck doing the same, repetitve tasks day in and day out. Even their Six Sigma training has been killed by the VP. One-on-one reviews are a joke (it's almost winter and we still haven't had our yearly evaluations) and the monthly evaluations are usually only done if you've done something wrong. Once you're in trouble, you're pretty much stuck there until they're forced to catch up on an evaluation. Oh, and pay raises are a joke as well. Again, we haven't had our yearly evals yet...which is when pay raises are brought up. If you have any special needs for different scheduling (i.e. kids, school, military), good luck getting it changed. Hours are pretty strictly 8-5 unless it's Holiday season (which you come in and stay later) or are a member of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We've had at least one person leave the company per week for over two months...see a pattern here? Maybe you should start caring about your workers again! This used to be such a fun and upbeat place to work...now it feels like slave labor.

    I worked at Volt Information as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    They have the resources to find you a job, but don't hold your breath. They'll call you if they find a position, they'll e-mail you with interview details, and they might call you back to let you know if you got the job, and that's it.
    They were never late with a paycheck at least.

    Cons

    As a staffing agency, they'll get you a job somewhere then take a cut of your pay and that's the last you'll hear from them. They don't return phone calls or e-mails, and when your assignment ends they won't provide any feedback or return any of your personal belongings.
    They do offer a healthcare plan, but it's a scam: you have to pay in a certain amount before you can claim any benefits, and it is designed so it will pay out, at most, a few hundred dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to pretend to care.
