    Pros

    Great assignments, awesome work schedules.

    Cons

    You have to dedicate yourself to work long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Communication is definitely the key, and Appleone communicates with their employees via email as well as verbally very well.

    Pros

    You're able to have a greater selection of reputable companies to choose from.

    Cons

    You may not get the opportunity to work consistently depending on employers needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If candidates are unable to complete an assignment due to a medical situation out of their control, I suggest instead of holding it against the candidate, to have a wider selection of available candidates for immediate placement at employer.

    I worked at AppleOne as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    If they like you aka if the agency likes you you might get treated nicely. Its like sheep in wolves clothing

    Cons

    To Whom It may concern:

    I have to say that appleone has to be one of the rudest temp agency I have ever seen in my life. I have been to two different appleones and they have been very nasty. A temp agency is suppose to help you find employment if you qualify. My background is 8+ years old and I have not had the time nor the money to expunge it. I'm human and we make mistake. I am a hard worker and I have 3 children to support. I don't want to request for government assistance but I may have to go that route. I left a stable job thinking that I would be at the assignment permanently, but low in behold weeks later I'm told not to come in due to my background that should have been ran weeks before my assignment. Which I thought she had done. I don't qualify for unemployment. I had attitude from day one from the agent to the secretary. When I went to another office I had attitude there so that must go hand and hand with appleone. When I returned there call I had an attitude with the agent whom called me "Well I see a lot of resumes....so who are you??" For the love of goodness you called me. Then the secretary told me to disregard the call if I wasn't left a voice mail?? When I explain my situation she told me to give her a call when I take care of that (nasty). Why on earth would I come back. OK Anyway if you want to deal with rude people, whom treat you like the dirt under their shoe no matter what your background is then Appleone is for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell your agents that we are human beings and that every person should be respected no matter what and to have some empathy .

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning environment for someone without staffing experience. Training is free and constant.

    Cons

    Low salaries, high sales quota expectations that may be unrealistic for someone without 500 people on their Facebook page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salary, lower quotas and improve technical infrastructure.

    Pros

    They find you a really good job and they are there on the first day of employment if you have any questions or any concerns.

    Cons

    There are no perks. When your assignment has ended you won't hear from them again. I has applied for numerous jobs under this company and never get a response.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in touch with clients that work under you company so people feel that you care or concerned.

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor

    Pros

    Everyone in the office is friendly and appear organized.

    Cons

    Seems as though jobs are posted for only the most experienced
    There's very little communication from your representative once you have had your initial interview and completed the assessments. Seems like a "don't call us we will call you" environment.
    Say they want to help you reach your career goals but don't attempt to follow through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruiters should be encouraged to provide feedback to candidates whether it's positive or negative-tell us what we need to improve to get that job.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    To become an Administrator that is available to help consumers to find a job that they would fit into, in a friendly and professional manner.

    Cons

    As a professional employee, to be aware the time-off policies is important. Any position that I apply for is where I want to offer personal growth, and be an asset to the company. I want a full time job, 40 hours a week and available for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please know that I have over 10 years of Customer Service in my work experience. I enjoy communicating with consumers. I have a perfect attendance record. If you would like a quick learner, problem solver with a strong work ethic, I hope you consider me for a position with your company.
