    Pros

    Entrepeneurial freedom, frequent contact with the CEO/President, strong regional leadership.
    It's wonderful to work for a company that encourages it's teams to put the applicant at the center of the universe. There is also limitless opportunity for advancement, and income growth in just about any position. The company prefers to promote from within, which creates a great culture. The annual "Founder's Club" destination sales trips are awesome, and really keep us motivated. It's great to be able to take a guest, and proudly "show off" your company, introduce them to all the great colleagues around the company, and to be recognized for hard work and loyalty.

    Cons

    Wrong industry for those who need to telecommute. Service industry requires full presence in an office environment.
    Base comp. for new hires results in limited hiring choices for internal staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider flex schedules (such as 9/80 alternate work schedule) to increase retention.
    Modernize technology.

    Pros

    AppleOne is a privately-owned, family run company where every employee's voice is truly heard. It is the best environment for someone who is entrepreneurial because it allows for creativity and significant growth. I've never experienced an organization of this size where every single person can make a difference.
    Each Branch location is different but the fundamental business principals are the same across all locations. The company mission is to help people and every employee is empowered to be their best.

    Cons

    To be successful with AppleOne you have to want to work and believe in the business principals.
    You are given all of the tools and training by AppleOne - it is up to you to utilize them to be successful at the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for creating a positive and dynamic organization that empowers people.

    Pros

    Got me a wonderful part-time placement that lasted for nearly a year. They worked as the 'staffing' agency for my part-time job and It was easy to turn in my time sheet on line and receive my pay. Friendly local office staff.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge was the turn over in the local office. My contact changed several times in the year I worked for Apple One.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time.

    Pros

    The recruiters and sales people are treated very well in their comp plans, bonuses and manager support. Fun contests, and superior training. The sales leaders are supportive and passionate and know staffing as experts! The owners are not merely investors - they started the company from the ground-up. They still are out in the offices meeting the staff. Make money - have fun - have a career path. Team oriented all the way.

    Cons

    Too many of the corporate leaders are comfortable and have stopped trying to innovate and improve. They do not promote accountability to each other. They are not paid well and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have excellent people selling for you. It is OK to now focus on the future of your other leaders.

    Pros

    The recruiters are really interested in helping you find employment. They are aware of your availability and your skills. Pay is weekly...always good. They helped me in finding a temp assignment when I really needed it and the hours for the assignment were awesome. I had time for my baby and my school work.

    Cons

    No benefits. No guarantee on job assignment coming to you quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider extending health benefits to all employees, not just full time.

    Pros

    Great and loyal staff. Good training programs.

    Cons

    There 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

    Pros

    Staff is young and dress professional.

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

    Look at your recruiting team and see if they are looking out for the best interest of the company.

    Great metrics and staffing tools, but poor employee morale and questionable values.

    Pros

    Great schedule, very nice office setting, and I was given plenty of resources to succeed in my position. Above average commission program. I was lucky to have an excellent manager as well.

    Cons

    Very metric driven, high turnover, and a sometimes vicious and paranoid culture. Account executives get overly protective of candidates instead of focusing on finding people work. It is not uncommon for co-workers and partner branches to not get along. Low base salary and the benefits are expensive considering the size and scope of the company. Management above the branch level was nearly invisible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management could spend more time showing concern for the work environment instead of just sales. Sales is king at AppleOne.
