    I worked at Volt Information full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked with several people at Volt Technical Information Services in Redmond during my a- contract with Microsoft, all of whom were invested in me and who made me feel important and worthwhile.

    Cons

    People move up from places where they have achieved great training and experience, and that happens to Volt as well, several of the people I worked with there have moved forward with this great company on their resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess if I had to make a suggestion it would be that "career forward" be even more active in trying to line up previous talent with future contract positions with a clear upward path.

    Volt Workforce solutions is a hiring agency contracted me to work at Apple Inc.

    I have been working at Volt Information as a contractor

    Pros

    Working at Apple Inc. is pretty easy. It's repetitive work, looking for bugs and fixing. You can use their transportation, which is pretty awesome. Managers/supervisors are very relaxed and cool about coming in early.

    Cons

    Not able to use gym unless you're an employee of Apple. You don't get to advance. It's only a one year contract, if you're lucky, you'll get an extension to 3 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could use interview questions about being a team-player and communicative questions

    I worked at Volt Information as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Once your are placed the managers you work for a really nice.
    They do the placement for Apple Inc. and Apple does a lot of hiring from the temps they get from Volt, unless you work in the warehouse.

    Cons

    You have to call the recruiters a million times for them to take you seriously about being placed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was fine with the management. Keep it up.
