DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THEM!!!
I worked for AppleOne for about six months in one of their West coast offices. I ended up quitting because I felt extremely uncomfortable and wrong working for such an unethical company. What they do is put up a fake job posting for people to apply for. If you are fortunate enough to get an interview it is likely for a fake position and the person interviewing you wants to "flip your references" because their ultimate goal is to get good contact information for a decision maker in one of your former workplaces so they can place someone else. Sometimes as a result of this they get real jobs and there are some real postings but considering how expensive their billing is compared to other agencies it is not very often they get contracts with anyone or atleast that was the case in my region;I can't speak for all of them. I'd say only about 10-15% of the people interviewed got placed. Also they totally cater to the clients...I saw so many cases where a person's resume was really good but the pretty girl or the young guy got the job despite being underqualified...very shady!!!
One of the reps asked me one time to look through various peoples date of birth on the i-9 forms we kept on file to see if they were a "good fit " for the client (age discrimination) but I declined and it caused tension in the office. If you are staff employee and don't go along with their illegal activities they will either dig up a reason to fire you, release you because you are "at-will" or make you want to quit. What their company policy states and what they do are totally different! I even heard a VP who flew in one day ask one of the reps "is it anything I want to hear" when the rep said no she said "ok"...it was in regards to the age range a client wanted his workers to be. The Regional Manager and VP both operated on a "I don't want to HEAR about the illegal stuff going on althogh I know there is illegal stuff going on" basis. There were MANY times when people called to check the status of their interview and the rep would tell them that they are still looking even though they weren't and the position they interviewed for never existed. One time when they hired a new guy, his first job was to put up five fake job postings to build his contacts/network...DISGUSTING!!!
