    I worked at AppleOne as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Within a week, they were offering me several positions, and within a month I had a temp to perm job for $13 hr with a great company who extended my contract.

    Cons

    The only con I had is I didn't know the job title until a week after I started, and then found out it was data entry. However, it turned out to be a lot more too, probably worked out for the best for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time

    Pros

    You do get paid on time

    Cons

    No work life balance and long hours in the office and then again at home pulling down resumes and talking to candidates/clients after hours. This is a churn and burn environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic as to what the job really entails, have them meet with current recruiters individually to get the real picture of expectations.

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's great to work with this type of recruiter, because they know where all the jobs are. I couldn't possibly reach out to as many contacts on my own.

    Cons

    Assignments are presented whether they exist or not. Meaning-you may waste half a day and your best suit on an empty promise. In addition, temp-to-hire usually means "temp"

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very professional, they paid regularly and the company itself is solid.

    Cons

    Quick turn over of recruiters behind the desk and it seemed like they didn't have time to train them very well. The woman I got assigned to didn't seem to know what to do with my skill set, but on the up side, I ended up getting a great full-time temp position on a fluke. The downside was that after that contract ran out I didn't get offered anything else, even though I got rave reviews from the place I worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train recruiters to look beyond resumes and ask good questions to learn more about the potential valuable staff member sitting in the chair in front of them. Value mature workers with experience.

    Pros

    Nearly everything we do has the eventual result of aiding many people in gaining employment.

    Cons

    The building we are currently in hasn't aged well. Constant little problems, but those fortunately don't have a significant effect on work....just funny to discuss with coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about corporate employees. The associates in the field can earn commission and qualify for company events. The other 10% of us only get to hear about all the fun they have!

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the folks that work there are great people....

    Cons

    The company does not value it's employees, especially the long standing employees that built the comapny. Management is pushing down unrealistic goals for the employees to achieve therefore company discontent is on the rise. Recent new management changes has brought in individuals that talk the talk but do not walk the walk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of key individuals in Marketing/Training and begin again to go back to the basics that Bernie, the owner, practices.

    A Lack Of Care

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    If, and only if, you keep after them, they can usually find some work not matter how below your actual skill level.

    Cons

    Complete and total lack of caring. Are you working in the system? OK, ignore. Do you request reassignment? Make appropriate noises and ignore. Hey, the contract employee is still bringing in money for the company, even if the job isn't ideal and isn't making enough to pay the bills! Once you're in, there is no further interest in your goals, abilities, or needs. And they work autonomously -- declare they know nothing about what is available in the company system, but then recruiters in other offices are hesitant to consider a contract employee "working" out of another office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a very long look at what the lazy approach your "top" recruiters are taking. This company could be making a lot more money off of my talents if there were less lip service and more active pursuit of getting employees already into the system into a better contract or temp position when they are available.

    Pros

    Great place to come to in the event that you are in between work. I was job hunting and I finally decided to try temping. Great way to network!

    Cons

    You have to be consistent and make sure that you are always in contact with someone. Otherwise you may be forgotten. I would call in everyday just to say "Hey I'm available."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great team to work with. Keep it up!
