    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    A paycheck was provided and certifications were paid by the company. There's a big networking opportunity and I used this to leave Volt.

    Cons

    Management is excruciatingly nit-picky over every single thing each engineer does and is overly focused on finding way to make things more efficient. Middle management should be pushing back on Upper-Management and get us more resources.

    Advice to Management

    Burn down the Fargo Office and start over.

    I worked at Volt Information Sciences as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good pay for the San Antonio area.
    - Most everyone is easy to get along with.
    - Dress policy laid back.
    - You can give hours to other employees when needing a day off.
    - You solve a customer's issues, managements thinks you're doing alright.

    Cons

    - Work with all of the headaches of being an AppleCare Specialist, but without any of the benefits of working for Apple.
    - I don't believe training prepares new AppleCare Specialists properly for job. Most of what I learned was painfully achieved on the job.
    - Unrealistic time restriction for calls.
    - Strict with hours to the minute.
    - Often times feeling lost or frustrated when network goes down, Level 2 specialists have no clue or push back, or whenever Apple leave you hanging.
    - Customers can often times be difficult. I believe it takes a real people-person to navigate these minefields and ultimately provide these people with the help they need.

    Advice to Management

    Get a more flexible deal with Apple, and provide better rewards and incentives to the employees who stick around.
