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

    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

    Nearly everything we do has the eventual result of aiding many people in gaining employment.

    Cons

    The building we are currently in hasn't aged well. Constant little problems, but those fortunately don't have a significant effect on work....just funny to discuss with coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about corporate employees. The associates in the field can earn commission and qualify for company events. The other 10% of us only get to hear about all the fun they have!

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

    Pros

    Jennifer Peck is my awesome go to person, despite being very busy she always gets back to me, and she found me my first assignment not a day after signing up with her.
    Every assignment give me more "tools" for my professional "tool belt" to make me a better candidate for the next company I go for.

    Cons

    it is a temp service so the work is not consistent, but that usually means more flexibility too, which can be helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more ways to "sing" the praises and positive comments on the personnel who really make a difference.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

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

    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.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New to the staffing industry people can learn quicking on how to sell and recruit. Appleone employees running a full desk. (temp & Full-time) (sales & recruiting)
    Company is only as good as the Manager in each region. I lead a good region and enjoyed most of my time with Appleone.

    Cons

    Some managers lack people skills. All employees should be treated equally no matter if you're the CEO or a Receptionist. Turnover, because of poor hires and bad field Management. Corp Human Resources lacks leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire Managers with good people skills that motivate staff. Change is good, corporate office needs change... new people with different ideas. AppleOne was a fun place for my first two years. If leadership sets the right attitude and field management follows it would be a good place to work. Consider hiring back people from the past that were good influencers and producers. They like myself could help change AppleOne for the better.

    I have been working at AppleOne full-time

    Pros

    This is a deffinte sink or swim situation. If you excel in this type of situation this is the place for you. They will continuously challenge you to do more and excel.

    Cons

    There tends to be a ton of office drama and politics. The trainers are great but have limited resources and are stretched very thing despite all their management gives.
