    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Room for growth. The CEO and majority of the management team are awesome to work with and take the time to provide additional training for you to succeed.

    Cons

    Some departments were unorganized and did not work well together due to personality clashes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job!

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

    Excellent Business- Great place to start a job search!

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Rachelle Hobus from the AppleOne location in Charleston, SC contacted me and immediately set up interviews with several local businesses hiring for positions that were relevant to my abilities and experience level. I am now happily employed with a stable local business called PeopLease. Without AppleOne, I never would have found this position, and I would likely still be on the hunt for a new full time job. I have already referred several job-seeking friends to AppleOne, and they have been as satisfied as I was.

    Cons

    At some point, AppleOne recruiters other than Rachelle stepped in and tried to set up interviews with businesses I was uninterested in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign one recruiter to each client that is looking to be placed. I enjoyed working with Rachelle, but did not like being contacted by other recruiters.

    I have been working at AppleOne

    Pros

    Michelle Cooper and Rachelle Hobus are really professional. They made the job search so simple. They really go to bat for the job seeker and do their best to pair them with the right company that fits their job requirements. I gave them a "wish" list and they filled it to the letter! I can't say enough good things about them.

    Cons

    There have been no "cons'.

    Pros

    Great placement. Worked with me to place me at a location that was near my home. Great upper management! Made the employer feel thought of and not just a number.

    Cons

    One of the companies I worked for didn't follow the rules given to me and wasn't the best about it. But it worked out!

  8.  

    Family owners run a tight ship and seem genuinely interested in people who want to grow with the company.

    I have been working at AppleOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very driven, professional staff are encouraged to find solutions, to listen to candidates and to provide fast, high-earning career options. Lots of opportunities for growth among the Branch team. One unique feature is the availability of customized marketing tools - a rarity in this business - and a 5•50 guarantee backing the quality of candidates you place. If you have a passion for helping people reach new heights in their work life, check out AppleOne.

    Cons

    The only down-side is the time you find yourself spending making things happen. Since there is no cap to what you earn, it's easy to spend a lot of time pursuing your goals. What's different compared to other shops is 50 years of experience behind you. Managers are expert at pointing you to solid leads and helping you maximize both earnings and client satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    I really appreciate the efficiency and quick turn around time they provide to their employees, along with professionalism. Good upbeat people!!

    Cons

    One of my challenges was the commute on public transportation to assignments. But that was up to me to advise them of where I could commute, and soon they provided me with assignments that I could get to easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and personal touch you have with your employees. They feel that you really care when you come to an assignment just to meet them and see if their happy and comfortable at their assignment.

    I have been working at AppleOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I was reluctant about coming to this agency, but recruiting team did a great job of listening to me and my skill set. After being harassed and mistreated at my previous job, I came to AppleOne looking for other options for employment. I wanted to work where my excellent work ethics and extensive background could be utilized to the absolute fullest. Michelle nailed it in the first try getting me linked with my current position and I couldn't be anymore happier. She gave me a new outlook on the work world.

    Cons

    The perks to this placement is knowing that in 90 days I will be a permanent employee of a well known international company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management should have surveys put in applicant files so they can be completed and mailed to supervisors, to get a better understanding of how this agency works well with its supporting communities.
