Contract Drivin Employment
Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Fargo, NDAugust 30, 2019
A very small subset of the greater culture would succeed here. Applied functions mostly as a staffing agency. They will interview you a few weeks before a contract is set to start, you work till the contract is up, then they "have a slow down" and let you go. Except for a few people at Applied, most people work on-site at the company paying the contract with limited to no options for working from home or otherwise. This makes the work volatile and stressful as you rarely interact with other Applied employees.

Applied itself is living in the stone age. Employees fill out paper time sheets and only get paper pay-stubs mailed to their home address. Employees are paid 2-weeks in the rear and benefits are delayed heavily. In fact your biggest paycheck will come (in paper of course) when you leave the company as they fill in back-pay and benefits accrued.
Pros
If you are lucky some fun contracts and work, You will also learn new skill pretty quickly
Cons
Benefits are expensive especially for anyone with families, Timesheets are more important than the work.

nice stable place to work
CNC loader/unloader (Current Employee) –  Yankton, SDJanuary 19, 2019
I wake up to look forward to every days' challenge. the management is easy-going, maybe a bit too much so but they accept the productivity level I perform at. The work place culture is a bit too unprofessional for my taste, which makes the production goals underachieved. the most enjoyable part of the job is being able to perform at a high level while meeting quality standards.

Not a bad place to work unless you have to do expense reports. If you travel you will not be able to pick the hotel and have stayed in several cheap and dirty hotels.

Nickle and dime you on expense reports.

Sales (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDSeptember 7, 2018
The company strives to make sure it's employees are it's top priority. Management is fantastic and willing to work with whatever schedule you might need. Benefits are good and the pay is competitive. The work load ebbs and flows depending on the week but it's up to you to keep yourself occupied and keep yourself on task with what might need to be done.

Great place to work
Design Engineer - Based in Eau Claire, WI (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDJanuary 2, 2017
Daily work activities changed as the projects changed. My coworkers were very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Management hada very hands-off management style and would help you in any way they could.

The hardest part of this job was that I was the only person in a remote office.

The most enjoyable part of this job was the variety of work,
