    I worked at AppleOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great hours, good clients to work with, how hard you work is how well you will do.

    Cons

    Have to work 90 days for vacation or days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more of a local presence. Hard to manage from afar.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Sandy, UT (US)

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    To become an Administrator that is available to help consumers to find a job that they would fit into, in a friendly and professional manner.

    Cons

    As a professional employee, to be aware the time-off policies is important. Any position that I apply for is where I want to offer personal growth, and be an asset to the company. I want a full time job, 40 hours a week and available for overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please know that I have over 10 years of Customer Service in my work experience. I enjoy communicating with consumers. I have a perfect attendance record. If you would like a quick learner, problem solver with a strong work ethic, I hope you consider me for a position with your company.

    Excellent Business- Great place to start a job search!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC (US)

    I have been working at AppleOne as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Rachelle Hobus from the AppleOne location in Charleston, SC contacted me and immediately set up interviews with several local businesses hiring for positions that were relevant to my abilities and experience level. I am now happily employed with a stable local business called PeopLease. Without AppleOne, I never would have found this position, and I would likely still be on the hunt for a new full time job. I have already referred several job-seeking friends to AppleOne, and they have been as satisfied as I was.

    Cons

    At some point, AppleOne recruiters other than Rachelle stepped in and tried to set up interviews with businesses I was uninterested in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign one recruiter to each client that is looking to be placed. I enjoyed working with Rachelle, but did not like being contacted by other recruiters.

    Former Employee - Data Entry in Santa Monica, CA (US)

    I worked at AppleOne as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Within a week, they were offering me several positions, and within a month I had a temp to perm job for $13 hr with a great company who extended my contract.

    Cons

    The only con I had is I didn't know the job title until a week after I started, and then found out it was data entry. However, it turned out to be a lot more too, probably worked out for the best for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at AppleOne

    Pros

    Michelle Cooper and Rachelle Hobus are really professional. They made the job search so simple. They really go to bat for the job seeker and do their best to pair them with the right company that fits their job requirements. I gave them a "wish" list and they filled it to the letter! I can't say enough good things about them.

    Cons

    There have been no "cons'.

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very good pay. Great hours. Great place to learn about the staffing industry.

    Cons

    Takes 6 months before you can start using vacation days or time off.
    For someone who had no true staffing experience, training was on a "need-to-know" basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an active role in each office. Make training a central point.

    Former Employee - Do Not Want to Disclose At This Time

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It could be rewarding to develop your portfolio if you were given enough time to learn the job.

    Cons

    No opportunity to develop their employees. Very high turnaround due to multiple metrics / quotas that must be reached on a weekly basis in order to keep your job for another week. Additionally, multiple employers in this region are very inauspicious toward AppleOne aside from some major accounts. Many local accounts in which a new staffing consultants up to senior account executives are responsible for developing hang up on you as soon as you say the company's name.

    You are scheduled for a full month's worth of training, but my office was so far behind that I had no opportunity to do proper training because the pressure was on to have 15-20 interviews per week, plus 25-50 connects, 10 send outs, and more.

    If you meet your quotas for the week, you will not have to work on the weekend. If you don't, you better be ready for the next week (if you still have a job).

    I worked at AppleOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great placement. Worked with me to place me at a location that was near my home. Great upper management! Made the employer feel thought of and not just a number.

    Cons

    One of the companies I worked for didn't follow the rules given to me and wasn't the best about it. But it worked out!
