Supervisor, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - January 10, 2017
Applied's working environment is fun because it really appeals to the fresh graduates. However once you gain more responsibilities in life such as marriage, pursuing higher education or even more bills to pay like a car or house then you start to realize that Applied can't really pay you the salary you need to survive in Orange County. Many friends and great employees of Applied have left the company strictly on the terms that they just weren't making enough money. This company pays roughly 15-25k below the national pay scale for every position. Upper Management and senior staff seem to be doing well financially but everyone else at the company seems to share the common struggle of money. Great company but the money is lowsy.
