I registered at their houston location, scored high on all of the computer tests, spent my time registering and going over my job requirements with them, etc. I called them everyday for job opening that would pop up on their website that I was a perfect match for. Not once did they return my call to coordinate an interview with an employer for an appropriate job. They called me for a couple of one day temp jobs, one of which was at a movie theatre..?? - jobs I was way OVER QUALIFIED for! I was insulted! I'm a desktop publisher, not a minimum wage ticket taker! This went on for a couple of months and I went the direct hire route. Recruiters and temporary agencies in Houston leave a lot to be desired.

This company presents itself as a recruiting company determined to find you a job - after they squeeze all the money out of you they can. I set up a new email address and registered with Appleone - within minutes I was getting spam. I went to their offices anyway & took their tests. My scores were high, so they sent me on an interview with a company. They said the position paid $40k a year. The company offered me the job, but ONLY after I had worked FOR Appleone 1,000 hours. I asked what I would be making while working for Appleone & they said $12/hour. I'm sorry but $12/hr and $19/hr are BIG differences - and if the company didn't like me they could let me go after my Appleone time was up. Appleone are just SALESPEOPLE - they think they're doing you a big favor, finding you a job and all, but the truth is they're making a LOT of money off you, because we all know you make $12/hour but they're billing the company $25/hour. I also mentioned when I went in I had another interview with a company (in which Appleone had no involvement). The recruiter said "oh don't interview with THEM, they're only paying $32k". Long story short, the "other" company offered me a job and said they had never heard of Appleone. And trust me, their offer was way more than $32k. Appleone lies, makes money off desperately unemployed people, but they are just salespeople out to increase their commission for the month...don't waste your time...you can find a better job yourself.

They post these dream sounding ads but I don't think they exist.

I am registered on several job boards and Apple One contacted me.. she talked up a position and made it sound as if I was a sure hire.. now I cannot get the woman back on the phone or by email. I am a single mom looking for work and to get my hopes up is really sick and twisted. I am reporting Apple One to the Better Business Bureau and my State's Attorney General Office. I'm tired of all these GREAT jobs out there that I just somehow miss application deadlines or am over qualified for or under qualified for... is there an actual job board that is worth while out there?

I applied online for a job they posted. The description matches my skills and experience perfectly. When you apply onlline you also have to schedule an appointment. So I did. 5:30pm the day before the interview they called and cancelled it and said they have no openings that fit my qualifications. Ridiculous. I have a job now that matches the description (I'm just looking for a new job at a different company) so I know this was lie. And yet they keep posting the job. You can call their office as much as you want, no one will answer. This place is surely a fraud taking government assistance money claiming to be helping get people employed. What can we do to take them down? They are preying on people just trying to get a job and wasting our time that we could use with legitimate employment agencies.

Believe it or not, this advertisement is real. I actually got called in for an interview by AppleOne's recruiter - Jessica Brophy. It was a complete waste of time and she was a total b****. She tried to throw a million other jobs at me when I got in there. Didn't even want to hear my salary requirement. Just a complete WASTE OF TIME. I am more than qualified for the position. Anyway, screw the staffing agencies. Apply directly. This company is IPPE - International Process Plants and Equipment. The VP is Jan Gale. He is also a complete a**. I interviewed with him - very secretive and just plain weird. He asked way too many personal questions and questions that he had no business asking about my past employers.

I have found that employment agencies are no good. First of all, companies only use them to get work for a 1 day to 2 weeks to cover someone who is absent or an event the company personnel need to attend. Second, companies will not hire you from an agency because agencies charge the company up to $3,000 to let you go. The object of the agency is to keep a list of names so that in the event they ever are contacted by a company, they have someone to sent out immediately to make themselves look good. Third, agencies lie about having jobs. I visited one agency I was signed and everytime I went to their office there were only 2 people working there, and never anyone in the waiting room. Fourth, all my friends who ever signed up with an agency told me the same thing I am reading constantly on the internet, that agencies are a waste of time.
Unemployed Paralegal in Denver, Colorado 13 months ago
I contacted Apple One in Tucson recently about an office position.
I have been living in Europe for the past seven years - and am now returning to the USA.
I was told by Apple One in Tucson that I would not be considered for any type of employment because I do not have '6 months of recent work experience' - even though I have 24 years of professional work experience.
I contacted the head of Human Resources for Apple One. She never replied to me.
What happens when someone has been laid off and has been unemployed? Too bad for you, huh?
Here's the email I sent to the head of HR at Apple One.
I would AVOID APPLE ONE Employment agency at all costs. They are unprofessional.

What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable?
How does AppleOne stack up against the competition?
