    I worked at Volt Information Sciences full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I met a lot of great people, but that is the extent of anything good within this company

    Cons

    Too many changes with organizational restructure. Reactive instead of proactive. Minimal incentives for employees. Very low morale. Extremely low pay. Does not take care of their employees unless they are Sr. Leadership or above. Would never work for this company again.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to give advice, as management is constantly changing.

    I worked at Volt Information Sciences full-time

    Pros

    Was allowed to be autonomous in decision making.

    Pros

    Used to have a family feel.

    Cons

    Has turned into nothing more than a money machine mowing down any employee it can. Extremely double-minded in its leadership. Wouldn't touch this place with a 10 foot pole.

    Get a heart.

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

    Pros

    Quickly placed into a job and the recruiter was nice but after that no help.

    Cons

    This company has terrible communication! Once put on assignment, I could get no questions answered regarding pay date, insurance, etc. These were all things I was told would be cleared up once I started.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with remote staff would make work from home employees feel part of the Volt team.
