    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!

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

    Pros

    They always have open positions

    Cons

    They do not care about their employees contracted with them, they only care about the hiring clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First off, I worked for AppleOne as temp to hire for over 2 years. The company I was contracted with through AppleOne told me that my pay amount was incorrect, less than what they agreed to pay me not including Apple Ones fee. I took this to my recruiter and they laughed and said they'll fix it with NO back pay. Then, the same company I contracted for laid off 80% of there full-time employees and kept the temps but our work load was 5x more. I told Appleone and they said to submit your duties in writing. I did and still have this today. I was then let go from my contracted company and now Appleone will not hire me. They give me every excuse in the book when I apply for a job. OH MAJOR -- DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE MEDICAL WITH THEM, THE COMPANY TOOK OVER $4,000 FROM ME AND WHEN I FINALLY WENT TO THE DOCTOR THEY SAID THEY NEVER HEARD OF THE COMPANY. I CONTACTED EVERY DOCTOR AND HOSPITAL, NO ONE TAKES THE INSURANCE.

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

    Pros

    Very good pay. Great hours. Great place to learn about the staffing industry.

    Cons

    Takes 6 months before you can start using vacation days or time off.
    For someone who had no true staffing experience, training was on a "need-to-know" basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an active role in each office. Make training a central point.

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

    Pros

    It could be rewarding to develop your portfolio if you were given enough time to learn the job.

    Cons

    No opportunity to develop their employees. Very high turnaround due to multiple metrics / quotas that must be reached on a weekly basis in order to keep your job for another week. Additionally, multiple employers in this region are very inauspicious toward AppleOne aside from some major accounts. Many local accounts in which a new staffing consultants up to senior account executives are responsible for developing hang up on you as soon as you say the company's name.

    You are scheduled for a full month's worth of training, but my office was so far behind that I had no opportunity to do proper training because the pressure was on to have 15-20 interviews per week, plus 25-50 connects, 10 send outs, and more.

    If you meet your quotas for the week, you will not have to work on the weekend. If you don't, you better be ready for the next week (if you still have a job).

    Training, sales, marketing, and recruiting experience.

    Cons

    leadership not very strong, negative environment, no organization, office drama

    Do things for the employees more often. We work extremely hard and do not see anything in return from upper management.
