Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – June 18, 2013
Pros: people oriented
I've worked primarily in customer service and it has been a good experience. I've taken inbound and outbound calls for research as well as product recalls. Management was okay as I didn't have much opportunity to interact with them, but team leaders were helpful when necessary. The hardest part of call center work is getting connected and dealing with – more... angry contacts. I've learned you need to be able to remain emotionally detached and not take the job personal. One thing I truly enjoy is when you are able to really help the customer. – less
ASSEMBLER/MAINTENANCE (Former Employee), Riverside, CA – June 12, 2013
This job was a temporary job. I did have my good and bad moments, but I always keep a smile and did the job. Will I go back? Yes because I was good at what I did and have no problem with rude co-workers and supervisors.
Goal Oriented workplace with a fun and outgoing atmosphere.
Call Center Representative (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZ – June 11, 2013
Pros: motivation tactics (such as games, prizes, and benifits), set schedule, and great training tools
Cons: healthcare and short breaks
Volt was a great place to work. The people were energetic and very goal orientated. It is a diverse workforce with many different ways to succeed. I learned a lot from being able to utilize my grown skills of active listening and adapting to different personalities to handling a heavy call volume calmly. The management at Volt was incredible. They are – more... excellent at motivating the sales team to keep them goal orientated. I love the people I worked with, we were a diverse team. People from all walks of life, so to speak. The most difficult part of the job was caring for the occasional caller who seemed to want to be unhappy. My most enjoyable part of the job was the fun I had keeping up with the top sellers and the benefits related to making sales. It is a great place to have fun and friendly competition. – less
San Jose Gardens was a fun place. Working with the tenants and helping them to answer their questions.

A typical day at work was busy, since we were working with annual certifications for the tenants for the Section 8 Housing. I earned how to deal with 35 customers per day. My co-workers were beyond nice. There was nothing that I couldn't handle in the office or with the customers. I enjoyed every single day working there.

Pros: free lunches now and again
Cons: very unprofessional co-workers
I initially applied at Volt workforce Solutions in October of 2001. After a lengthy process, I was able to get my drivers license back and was hired by Rockford-Fosgate thru Volt.

A staffing company. Employed to work at Phoenix International as a Production Specialist, testing products.
VOLT field employee deployed (Former Employee), Fargo, ND – May 31, 2013
Pros: the pay is a lot better than that of housekeeping.
Cons: the maximum duration of employment is three years; aftre which, volt no longer keeps the employee.
A section is assigned by the Team Lead. I pick up requisite items and go right to work. Sometimes I have five or six testers at a time; depending on the type of products. At the end of the shift I clean up and arrange things neatly and in order for the next shift.
My computer skills are too basic for a place of this nature; where every operation is – more... computer-controlled.
Phoenix International is a John Deere's subsidiary and has a reputable management.
My co-workers were very nice and helpful; except for one that wanted me out at all costs, as soon as I unguardedly let him know that I was both a Chemistry graduate and a Radiologic Technologist. He, without mincing words, told me, "this place is not for you; and you need to find your niche or I'll make you." And he did. Any night I worked with him was a nightmare. I went home with tension headaches. That is why I had to resign.
The hardest part of the job was the chambers where the man in reference is in charge. Sometimes he would alter the set parapemeters after a chamber has started running so that I would start afresh.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to see my metrics sometimes go over a hundred percent; when I am testing products. – less

Lack of communication with employees, overall very tacky
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – May 20, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: no benefits, no bonuses, no advancement, no holiday gifts
This agency was always trying to save money at the expense of the employee. The manager of the agency quit on my first day of work. The agency piled all the work on the assistant without ever hiring a new manager or giving her a raise. Do not expect anything from them. When employer gave out thankgsgiving gift cards, the agency gave temporary employees – more... one dollar chocolates. Very cheap. – less
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Boonville, MO – May 15, 2013
Pros: i had amazing co-workers.
Cons: that long of a shift and we only got 30 minute lunches.
It was a very repetitive job always doing the same thing. Some of the best people ive ever worked for. The management was the best because they cared not only about the productivity but the employee's as well. Really the hardest part of the day was the fact working 12 hrs and 30 mins on overnight.
