    Loved my job, hated the company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat and loyal staff. Good training programs.

    ConsThere are so many... here are just a few:
     - the company is notoriously cheap
     - too much focus on the bottom line (for the owners)
     - the strategy appears to be short-sighted (or stuck in the 1980's)
     - systems are behind the times and the systems staff is overwhelmed with the number of fixes
     - management does not stand up for employees and there are no long-term employee development programs

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery 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.

    ConsThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Appleone is one of the Best Staffing Agencies I have ever worked for!!

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Schiller Park, IL

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

    ConsOne 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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.

    It's ok if you don't mind being places in temporary positions

    Temporary (Former Employee) Riverside, CA

    ProsGreat at starting entry level positions going off your strengths on what you can do

    I am grateful for the experience, but did not feel valued or properly compensated for my work.

    Office Coordinator (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsI was able to gain experience to find another administrative job. In the time I was there, I streamlined some of the processes to save time and allow me to take on new projects.

    ConsThere was so much turnover during the short time I was there, it was hard for anyone to get a real handle on the accounts. My manager wanted to move me from Office Coordinator to Recruiter so I covered for someone when they were on holiday. I never made the actual move to recruiter because I had to move to another city. The manager never paid out my commissions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lackluster at finding jobs.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Overland Park, KS

    ProsStaff is young and dress professional.

    ConsI have been working with Appleone since the 2013. The local agency never has openings. When they do and it's higher paying. The office makes every excuse not to put you in that position (even if you qualify). As if they're waiting for a certain type of person to place in that position (friend, family member, man/woman, black/white). Never was advised that the person I was working with was no longer there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your recruiting team and see if they are looking out for the best interest of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA family company that has a goal and a heart. Zero debit, privately held means a stable future. Average tenure is 20 years!! I love the past and the future of this organization

    ConsThere is no cons. You have the freedom and support to be successful
