    Warehouse Receiver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Sacramento, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was a pain. It took 3 weeks after the orientation to bring me in for the first day on the job.They granted me the position but kept giving me the run around about when my actual start date would be. Very unprofessional staffing agency. They don't take complaints seriously. I had to urge them to finally give me a specific starting date before they actually called me in for "additional training." keep in mind it was a mindless job. HR was the worst, they did not handle any employees concerns with the least standard of conduct.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (Westbury, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    There was one phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by live interviews with the hiring manager and 2 members of the team.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (San Francisco, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. I think they were checking to make sure we were breathing. As a lead generator or call center rep - they want to know that you understand what the day will look like i.e. you will sit at a desk all day to make your numbers. They want to know that you can follow a script and not sound like it. They want to know that you understand there will be quotas to meet.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Volt Information Sciences (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I'm a registered job candidate for an indefinite time now, yet I do not not find Volt Jobs resourceful nor effective to battle this ailing economy. How does one go about when there is nothing to offer?? I have never been invited into their physical office, amid their numerous physical global office locations, or been contacted directly by a recruiter. Their job database productive flow is without technical error unlike the standard Taleo or Kenexa recruiting employment platform. However, I encompass a lot of technical positions in my employment search travels.
