    I worked at Volt Information as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They are there to hire for Renewal by Andersen. If you have nothing better to do and really need a job.

    Cons

    Unable to get the job done, I could have done something else or missed other opportunities while I waiting for them to get it together, unorganized. Tricky and manipulative with your information and job description. All one sided. They run your social security number and pull all jobs for 13 years. You will need to do 5 hours of paper work and run to 4 locations across metro Detroit, then at the last minute you'll be told, be here at this time or else your fired with no reasonable notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste to much time and money working with either of them

    I worked at Volt Information full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As an internal employee the company was a good place to get your feet wet in the corporate atmosphere and make good networking connections. Volt was a giant company that placed professionals with low-mid level skill in the financial sector with a moderate degree of success.

    Cons

    The company is being sold and undergoing a great purging of talented people. Volt was mired in 90's business procedures, policies and technology (including a Cold Fusion database literally made in 95). Volt was trying to be everything to everyone instead of focusing on core competencies like its leaner boutique competition. As far as staffing agencies go Volt lost its edge by failing to update its corporate business model into the current hyper connected technology market. It probably didn't help that the company was primarily owned by the founding family and was run by the founder long into his senility. It also didn't help that Kochman was a finance professional trying to run a relationship business. Volt was a giant, unfortunately due to mismanagement and the inability to adapt Volt ran into dire financial circumstances during the recession and a restatement; Volt never recovered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ship is too far out at sea to turn around, but it is taking on water too fast to keep afloat. Sell Volt to the highest bidder.
