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.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Volt Information in October 2010.
Interview Details – I applied to the position online and was called by the corporate recruiter a few weeks after. I was then set up to meet with the Branch Manager and was told to dress "very nice" because the manager was picky about clothes. I only met with the branch manager and I spoke about my background and experience.
Interview Question – I was not asked any difficult questions. It was a standard interview- I talked about my experience and how I thought it could benefit the company. Answer Question
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.
Interview Question – If you are having issues filling a job and you've looked everywhere, what do you do next? View Answer
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.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Volt Information in August 2011.
Interview Details – It was very simple, called the recruiter, emailed a resume, came in took a test to judge my knowledge on technical stuff, toured the work place, had 2 interviews and took a drug test. Very straightforward. However there is a weed out process, if you are late to work, from break or from lunch, three times, you are fired, if you fail 2 quizzes during training (there are a total of about 30) you are fired, if you get less than a 90% on the final, you are fired.
Interview Question – How would you describe the internet to someone in the 1940s Answer Question
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.
