    Contracted to Apple

    Former Employee - Tier I Account Security Technical Support Advisor in Sacramento, CA
    Former Employee - Tier I Account Security Technical Support Advisor in Sacramento, CA

    I worked at Volt Information Sciences full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn from Apple their products and applications. Dealing with people of all ages, personalities, nationalities, demographics and technical skill levels of understanding how to use, troubleshoot or resolve the issues that their having.

    Cons

    The management from Volt and Apple did not work cohesively regarding training and support. Keep in mind that not Apple Management are this way. Specific AppleCare Team Managers need to be more than a people person and more of a people manager.

    Advice to Management

    For Apple - treat the contractors as an Apple Employee and adapt to their learning abilities. For Volt - the on-site managers at the Elk Grove, CA location, need to be more more involved with their contractors rather a once a month meeting of their representatives.

    Pros

    Will sometimes work with your schedule if you are a student.

    Cons

    Management is extremely poor in this company. Not only are they never present, but the individuals who are employed as "managers" are extremely inept and unprofessional; they lack the necessary leaderships skills. They will accuse employees of doing things "wrong" however, they are so uneducated and unprofessional that they can't even tell you what it is that you are doing wrong; thus leading in a lot of unfair terminations of good employees who truly are doing their job and going above and beyond for their customers. For what they pay, which is $9.50/hr, they definitely are exploiting their employees by expecting so much out of them with very little pay and no incentives. If a company expects stellar service out of their employees, pay definitely needs to be increased and better management to correctly lead their employees; especially when working for such a major telecommunications company. The center lacks the proper equipment to do your job right. Not only are there no headsets, the very few headsets available are either broken or malfunctioning. Management has been promising new headsets for over a year now but the employees are yet to find those new headsets to properly do their job. Amongst management it is more about socializing amongst each other and what they will be doing for lunch rather than fixing the issues in front of them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better qualified individuals who actually have leadership experience and will be present rather than just wondering and socializing around the site during their work hours; extremely unprofessional and unethical. Make sure that they are educated as to why they are terminating individuals so a lot of employees won't be left in the dark when they are told "we don't know what you're doing wrong sorry."
