I worked at AppleOne full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

*cooperation within and between offices in Northern CA
*transparent leadership - monthly P&L meetings
*great learning experience about building and operating a business "from the ground up"
*exposure to several different sectors and companies
*personal freedom to forge your own path; you can specialize in one sector (finance, HR, Accounting, Construction, etc) or be the jack/jane of all trades
*flexability to work with small, medium, and large businesses
*bonuses are available for every fill you get and every new req you secure
*there are a variety of people at the company; a wide range of ages and educational backgrounds. I've seen HS diplomas and MBA's be equally successful at AppleOne and I think that is very unique
*career progression and advancement are never impeded, the staff wants you to do well
*exposure to different companies and career paths through working with candidates
(you can join a conversation about any career/sector and contribute)
*benefits are deducted pre tax
*national sales trainers are not hired externally. This means they have succeeded in your role and can give you spot on guidance in building your business
*the founder/president is very old but he makes an effort to visit the offices and share his insights
*founders club is extravagent and very prestigious

Cons

*long waiting period for benefits (selection at 90 days; if you began mid month you select benefits on the 1st day of your 4th months). After selection benefits take one pay period to take effect
*IT is slow to resolve technical matters....this impedes productivity
*base salaries are just that, a base. It is not sustainable to live off your salary, so be prepared to rack up the jobs filled becuase you need the bonuses
*offices seem to have a general distaste for corporate staff. Senior AE's & Management across offices portray the corporate staff as though they throw money away. In all of my interactions with corporate I never had a negative experience
*OC salaries depend on branch profitability. Make the salary for OC's standard - they do not work in a sales capacity so their wages should not depend on branch profitability

Advice to Management

Nick & Theresa in the Santa Clara branch are effective leaders. They have a sense of humor and a drive to achieve their goals. They're both a great resource to staff

Corporate - work on your relationship with the staff in the branches

Nor Cal offices:
keep pushing for temp to perm and perm orders. this will draw in the strongest candidates (when I worked on the staffing end I hesitated to reach out to high profile passive candidates without actual orders to submit them to).
