Former Employee - Corporate Support Department in Torrance, CA

I worked at AppleOne full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you have an innovative idea, you can realize short-term financial gain.
Sales positions (recruiters, etc.) have the opportunity to make significant money if they continue to produce.

Cons

AppleOne encourages internal competition in a way that leads to building silos. I was shocked at the complacency that existed; when mistakes were made there was never time spend on implementing future solutions, only pointing fingers.

Advice to Management

Find opportunities to reward collaborative approaches. But don't limit incentives to just sales (AEs); reward support departments as well.

    Pros

    Nice offices, conveniently located to major freeways.
    Tons of training, sometimes a bit excessive but management loves to pitch the latest and greatest.
    Automated systems from application process, timecards to almost paperless with reports, etc.
    Founders Club incentive, nice vacation spots all paid-for you and guest.
    Well recognized name within communities and organizations.

    Cons

    Too many meetings to discuss how you should do your job, what you could do better, how to achieve more sales and bring in better applicants but never actually allowing you enough time to do your job.
    Upper management leads with an iron fist and have a 'do as I say not as I do' mind set.
    Long, long, long hours and can't leave unless your manager feels like you've done your job or they make you feel like you've committed a crime.
    Management is very negative and the weekly performance reviews are meant to pump you up but they do a very poor job at it. Management needs to be trained on how to be positive and better leaders.
    Tons of unnecessary documentation.
    Employee benefits are not great at all, very expensive to cover 1 other person besides yourself, let alone a whole family.

    Advice to Management

    For upper management: Allow your Branch Managers to manage and motivate positively.
    For Branch Managers: Speak up for your team and spend a little money on donuts, lunch or goodies to show your employees you really do care (you can expense it, I'm sure).
