    Good opportunities with Volt

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI had contracts that paid well through Volt. They were usually long term (1yr+). They worked to find other opportunities if your contract ended.

    ConsNo chance to earn paid time off. No holiday pay until after working 3 months. It's not fun to work on a holiday making straight pay while others around you make so much more for the same day.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was a smooth transition moving from my old company to Volt, and they were a lot more organized and personal.

    Typical large corporation; some flaws, but general stability

    Branch Administrator (Former Employee)
    Woburn, MA

    ProsBranch offices are kept generally small, creating a strong team environment with your co-workers. Ability to transfer/travel between branches, or work onsite with large customers.

    ConsSome dysfunction/inconsistencies between regions and offices make streamlined procedures difficult. Lack of training creates problems with offices where administrators are not willing to learn on their own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBranch audits and compliance checks would ensure consistency from branch to branch. A better structure for branch administration would create a better training/growth path; there should be a receptionist/admin assistant at the front of the office to greet and do basic administrative duties, who would learn and grow into Branch Admin role when the existing BA moved into another position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsThey work with you to find the right fit for a contract or vendor role and stick with you till they find you work.
