    I have been working at AppleOne full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was able to gain experience to find another administrative job. In the time I was there, I streamlined some of the processes to save time and allow me to take on new projects.

    Cons

    There was so much turnover during the short time I was there, it was hard for anyone to get a real handle on the accounts. My manager wanted to move me from Office Coordinator to Recruiter so I covered for someone when they were on holiday. I never made the actual move to recruiter because I had to move to another city. The manager never paid out my commissions.

    Disappointing

    Former Employee - Recruiter in Toronto, ON
    Former Employee - Recruiter in Toronto, ON

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good peer working relationships, friendly people, some degree of flexibility, decent tools available, strong brand identity in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Management is more focused on transactions than relationships. Management also routinely oversold the strength of the company's client relationships and the strength of their business developers. There's a lot of sizzle but no steak, from an earnings perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with potential employees on the way in as well as on the way out. You're supposed to be recruitment experts but you do a dismal job of recruiting your own staff.

    Former Employee - Forklift Operator in Brampton, ON

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many if you're in the administrative, supervisory, or other technical field.

    Cons

    Idiot interviewers who know nothing about forklifts and think they're right about what little they know. One guy asked if I'm certified on forklifts, I said yes. He asked, "Is that the red one?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who KNOW what they're talking about. The staffing industry is full of these 'office workers' who are recruiting for warehouse/logistics positions. It's insulting to the vast majority of people who actually work in these positions to be interviewed and screened by people who aren't qualified to do so.

    Pros

    They had me working within 24 hours of submitting employment testing & paperwork. They have also worked to eliminate any gaps in employment due to contracts ending. So far, I have been really pleased with the efforts they have made on my behalf.

    Cons

    Always seem in a hurry to end conversations or informational calls..

    I worked at AppleOne full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As long as I kept in contact with them they kept me busy and after lots of temp jobs, landed me a great full time opportunity.

    Cons

    When my recruiter was on maternity leave no one really picked up the slack so I was out of work for months until she came back.

    Best staffing agency I've worked with

    I worked at AppleOne

    Pros

    I loved working with friendly, positive, "Go-getters" in a fast paced environment. It was a great experience to work with so many different people.

    Cons

    I don't think I can think of very many negatives. Sometimes opinions differ, but they usually all get sorted out in the daily morning meeting.
