    I worked at AppleOne

    Pros

    Were helpful in discovering what skills had employment potential.

    Cons

    I had been an employee for several months in 2005. I received many assignments. One turned into a full time job. I reconnected with the employment agency again in 2014 and received no leads of any kind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss assignment policy instead of leading prospective clients on.

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

    Pros

    *Spend 1 year to 18 months max working here. You can use the experience and transfer it to Recruiting (for a good corporate company), Admin support, Marketing, Sales, Account Management, Project Management.

    *Learn how to interview people (this helps when you're on the other side as a candidate because you are able to learn the language of interviewing well)

    Cons

    While I worked here as an entry level recruiter I felt like a pimp. The trainers try to spin it like you're helping people, but you're actually exploiting them while they are at their most vulnerable. Here's how:
    1.Ask candidates where they applied and who they interviewed with. Contact that company and try to push your way into getting a req
    2. If a candidate is hired as a temp you cut into their pay. For example, for a candidate who earns $10 hourly Appleone is billing the client+$30.00 hourly.
    3. Contact candidate references under the guise of checking references, really though the purpose is not to learn more about the candidate. The purpose of refernce checking is to try to "flip" the call into a sale.

    The owner, Bernie fits the description of a slimy salesmen, and he's proud of it. Offices are run down - old equipment, low base salaries, expensive benefits (no 401k matching). When Bernie visits offices he encourages Receuiters to MANIPULATE
    example: "Oh, was it Jane Doe that interviewed you?" The idea is to make up a name so that the candidate will say "No actually ----- interviewed me"

    I worked at AppleOne part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is temp work, which should motivate you to go back to school or make you rethink your goals in life.

    Cons

    It is temp work, if you enjoy being loaned out for crappy jobs for crappy pay and do not want to do any thinking this would be a perfect fit.

    I have been working at AppleOne full-time (less than an 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.

    Pros

    I love that we run our own "desks," working in a team environment, meeting new people, being with a senior team, continuously learning new things, no complaints about salary - we determine how much we make! I have been promoted twice in two years and I plan on continuing to move up.
    Much support through our corporate office.
