    I worked at Volt Information Sciences full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with are the best thing about Volt.

    Cons

    Low pay, no stability, poor leadership, no investment in future of company

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the past and finally get rid of all of the leaders that got Volt into this situation in the first place, as they are not the ones that will get you out of it.

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

    Pros

    You get paid, that's it.

    Cons

    I was hired on for $13.50/hour and I ended up only receiving $12.50/hour. The client site had the worst equipment for training, it's so detrimental to training when you are troubleshooting every 5-10 minutes. Concentrix, the site I was at, is very disorganized, on top of training on inferior equipment our trainer was given all the wrong curriculum, grinding the lessons almost to a halt, and she even received the wrong roster for our class. God help you if you lock yourself out of their Windows login, because it takes a week for them to reset your password since there is no one on site that can do this. Also, if you work at Concentrix at 5 am, do not count on being able to get in, your badge only works after 6 and the security guard will not let you in.

    Advice to Management

    Fix everything I mentioned above, make a clear plan on what employees who are getting layoffs do with your equipment, there was no organization over where to turn in headphones on my last day.

    Pros

    Pay was Ok. There is plenty of parking. Reasonably good facilities. Many employees were nice. Lower level staff worked hard.

    Cons

    Pay for many people was substandard and consequently quality of staff suffered. Senior management did not know what they did not know. Old fashioned thinking.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay well to attract quality employees who can do more than be spreadsheet jockeys. Have managers manage, and not do original work. Benefits are embarrassing.

    A terrific group of people to work with. Opportunities to work remotely.
