"Employer informed after interview they like keeping oeople waiting so will inform if i got position at least by next week. Didnt hear anything for antoher month. They went through 2 staffing agencies to get me hired on and it was confising and frustaiting took 3 weeks. Once i started my first day they sent me back to another side of town because they fualed to give me drug test information before hand. And i couldnt work before taking drug test. The peraon they had me shadowing talked about everyone to me the whole time and compakined about horrible pay for too mich work. I had grew frustrated and resigned . They insured id get paid for the full 8 hr shift consdiering i drove 30 mons to work just to drive 35 mins to another side of town for drug test 4 hours into shift. They did not get my direct deposit details but insured id get paid. Have yet to get confirmation whether they are sneding via check or would like my DD details. Frustrating experience overall."

"I've only been with the company a week or so. So far I've clicked with the team and management. The work environment is your usual cube setup. Safety is job one in everything we do. I have a good bit of leeway in getting my job completed. It should be a good job for the long haul."

"I've worked at a lot of companies in my career. Applied is by far the hardest company with the most rigid silos and infighting I have experienced. It's a great place to start your career. Any mid to late career types should consider other alternatives."
