Two thumbs down. I called and spoke with an associate in the Glendale office, who requested I email my resume. I haven t heard back?? and though I may be overqualified, or not suitable to their needs??one expects some sort of minimal response, which is so easy with standardized technology. What does poor follow through and sloppy communication say about a company that is supposed to value thoroughness and precision in their workers?
Run -don't walk-away from interviewing with the Cerritos, CA branch. Specifically with an assistant branch manager with a "chipper" voice.
This assistant branch manager randomly emailed me regarding a permanent, salaried position after finding my resume on an employment website. At first I thought her email was spam since it contained poor grammar and a misspelling, but no.
After I contacted her, she arranged a phone interview for me with the client, but would not tell me many specifics about the company - later I'd find out why.
After the phone interview went well, she then informed me that not only did they want to interview me the day after next - bright and early in the morning an hour and a half away, let's say around 9:30 a.m.- but that I'd have to first drive to her offices (30 minutes away from the interview site), to be there two hours before the interview at 7:30 a.m. so she could interview me.
She did not go out of her way to give me much information so that I could optimize my interview e.g. volunteer the names of the panel members who would be interviewing me. This is "step one" basic info: help the person you are recruiting do well so you can place them and get your commission!
After blowing $300 in a mad, exhaustive dash for a suit and cramming to prepare for an interview in the middle of cramming for finals, I get up at 5:00 a.m. the day of the interview to make it to the Appleone asst. manager's office on time and she's late to arrive.
I wait at the front for 20 minutes while the receptionist is subtly rude. I'm obliged to sign up with Appleone and provide references (soon after I learn that some people's professional references get HOUNDED by Appleone for their business).
When she shows up and I speak with her, I realize that she didn't provide much information about the job because she doesn't actually know much information about the company or position and is pumping ME for info based on my conversation with her client. USELESS.
I go to the interview, seem to do quite well and hear them talk of having me meet the "higher-ups," then leave and call the Appleone to communicate with her. She gets excited, tells me she'll get back to me when she hears word from them.
No word from her since, after two communications from me. To my knowledge, she has not called my references after informing me that she would do so very soon.
I'm not bitter about the job - that behavior is typical of so many companies - but the gall of money grubbing bottom feeders like this individual needs to be publicized so that others can side step this type of experience, if possible.
To recap, this assistant branch manager at this Cerritos Appleone office was:
Unprofessional in her behavior
No common professional courtesy
Poor communication skills, right down to her emails replete with misspellings, punctuation errors, etc.
Interview with another branch!

They just get you to meet up with them and go through 3 or 4 hours of testing....they carry big promises that they actually call people two or three times a week for jobs, NOT TRUE.
I've been registered with them for over 2 months and gone through two interviews with them in two different offices.
They never called not for a single interview and when I even tried to contact them to follow up, one of the account executive i met with yelled at me saying that i shouldn't call or follow up or even apply to any of their ads i see online because I'm confusing the whole office.
VERY bad service, and waste of time!!
There are many Apple Ones in the Los Angeles area. I'm familiar with the one in West Los Angeles. They are very helpful and efficient. They have a wide array of job assignments and at different hourly rates based on your experience. Also if you are looking for full time, they can also assist you with your career journey.

Go here only as a last resort. They dont know what they are doing here and wont place you unless you bother them day and and day out, and even then I am not so sure... they give you a series of computer 'tests" even if they do not relate in any way to what you are trying to do, and dont care if you have an associates degree or a masters degree because they probably dont know the difference
