Parenteral Packaging Operator (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – July 28, 2014
My job is primarily introducing products to the line, checking for quality and helping my team mates run the line while keeping it organized. Since I took over this particular job, I have learned the basics of PMX, introducing materials to the line,and using manual/electronic pallet jacks, as well as scanning materials. I enjoy coming to work knowing – more... that I am making a difference in someone's life since I work in the pharmaceutical department, as well as the team work effort from my co-workers makes it enjoyable to show up for work, while learning something new every day. The hardest part of this job is staying on top of the GMPD because of the constant demand and changes that comes with running a pharmaceutical department, and the legality of it, that adds on to MORE documentation. In addition, working 12hr shifts, which can sometimes make it challenging to balance life in general. I enjoy my work because of the people that I work with are mindful, respectful and fun to work with. In addition, I enjoy the idea that it keeps me physically and mentally challenged, every day I'm learning something new. – less

Pros: hours and pay good
Cons: sitting for long periods
I very quiet setting within the building with the touch of a keyboard from every corner.. I learned a lot of data entry and a good brush up on my over all typing and 10 key. The hardest part is sitting all day, but enjoyed the hours that they had and offered overtime when needed
Lillian Vernon Temp (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VA – May 23, 2014
Pros: working, getting paid
Cons: doesn't last long enough, scheduled potty breaks, not 40 hours
Seemed good for temporary work. Lillian Vernon (where I was placed for seasonal help) asked me to extend and Volt allowed it. There was no work offered for months after that though. They have something similar to a non-compete order. Lillian Vernon was 8 hour shifts but you had to clock out for a 30 minute dinner break so you only got 7.5 hours of work- – more... not a 40 hour job. – less

Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – December 27, 2013
I really enjoyed working with my 5 other co-workers which included 2 managers, and 3 other data entry clerks. We worked together as a great team to get everything done by our 3:00 deadline. I think the hardest part of the job was trying to read the writing on the applications ,and getting all 118 applications (which were divided between 4 of us) processed – more... into the system without any delays. I learned alot about how FedEx driver application process works, there is alot of detailed information that has to be looked at. The management in the office I worked in was really good and very fair in my opinion. – less

Pros: working hours
Cons: short lunch
Decent place to work with great hours. Typical day consists of arriving to work 6 am learning the plan of the day and carrying out that plan. Usually off by 230 but if not overtime is paid time and a half.
I get many jobs with Volt Workforce Solutions. The staff is very willing to help me find a job.
Product Assembler (Former Employee), Roseville, CA – October 25, 2013
Pros: lots of jobs, lots of client sites to work for
Cons: short assignments
A typical day of work is fulfilling. Job easy to do, needs a little more challanging assignments. All the managers I've worked for are fair. Just wish I knew why assignment so short -- worked at one client for two and half months and Volt told me client told Volt -- job r.i. f. (workforce reduction) of temps was due to a Government shutdown. When let – more... go at the client site, the production manager at the client site said "You guys did such a great job helping MLS electronics (Department) get caught up with the production need." There's a little inconsistency here.
I enjoyed working with the co-workers at the client site. – less

This was an inbound call center for student loans, giving the borrower the opportunity to consolidated all their loans into one loan. The supervisor was very friendly and helpful when you had problems or questions. This was a 40 hour job with some overtime.
EHS Associate (Former Employee), Peoria, IL – August 28, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: no paid vacation or sick leave
The client allowed a flexible work schedule to achieve maximum work-life balance. Management was firm yet friendly and they made sure they knew everyone by name and something about them. It wasn't unusual to discuss your weekend with the boss. My supervisor and work team were outstanding. They worked together as a team for the good of the company and – more... they were always willing to lend a hand or offer advise when needed.
There were a few difficult personalities in other departments. We agreed that we were all working toward a common goal, but getting there in different ways. Once the project was explained and understood by all, everything went smoothly. – less
