    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Tempe, AZ) in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview portion took maybe a grand total of an hour from start to finish. First they started with a technical exam and if you passed that you sat with an agent for 20-30 minutes and listened to calls. Finally, one of the Volt staff would discuss with you whether you were interested in the position still and if you were you were given further instructions to return for drug testing and training.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (New York, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    After one phone interview, I was called in for an in person interview. It was a typical corporate interview, followed by a competency test - which for someone with as many years of experience as I have is unprofessional and insulting. It also shows the management's insecurity in their and the company's ability to make choices and decisions.

    No negotiations - just a straight offer.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Nashville, TN) in February 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Various Office Positions Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Bellevue, WA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a specific advertised position, then was discussing placement in several other positions. I observed: 1) The one on one interview was very brief, with little attention paid to my qualifications 2) The position I was applying to was no longer available, but the recruiter told me they jest left jobs on their site for 90 days until they dropped off automatically rather than remove them 3) The recruiter called me later to offer positions that I was vastly overqualified for 4) When one short term offer actually sounded interesting I accepted it, then was called back days later to be told I was overqualified and the offer was withdrawn (try reading my resume next time). 5) It was obvious during our conversations that the recruiter simply didn't have any understanding of some job order requirements ie. didn't know the difference between a Sharepoint user and administrator. Conclusion: Recruiter is skating by on the fact that there are lots of competent people looking for work now and if you randomly placed someone with minimum experience in a position there is a good chance they will do well.
