You're An AppleOne Associate Now... Need Some Success Tips?
Don't Be Afraid to Ask Questions.
A new assignment isn't always easy to start. New duties may be challenging for a
number of reasons. To help cut down your anxieties, it's important to ask questions.
Every business runs differently. Business correspondence, spreadsheets,
reports...every company will expect your work to fit their corporate "look." If you're
not sure what this is, ask!
Dress the Part.
First impressions are everything! As an AppleOne associate, you represent
AppleOne every time you are sent out on assignment. By "dressing the part," you
not only make yourself look good, you also send the message that you are a
professional to the company you are sent to.
Companies may not have a steady work load for you. You may find that you have
lapses in duties, or "down time" between projects. If this happens, you have an
excellent opportunity to show off your professionalism and work ethic! Instead of
taking that time to read a magazine, or make personal calls, go to your supervisor, or
the person you contacted on your first day of the assignment, and ask if they have
any additional duties you can relieve them of. This will show them that you are a
dedicated, diligent worker. Remember, keeping yourself busy will spell job security
in the long run!
Follow Company Rules.
It's important to follow set company rules. Get to work on time and don't leave early!
Make sure you follow company dress codes and remember, it's always better to be
overdressed than underdressed! Breaks may occur at set times throughout the day -
don't be afraid to ask when these are, and if you smoke, make sure you know which
areas are designated for such activities.
If You Are Having Problems On A Particular Assignment...
On rare occasions, applicants and assignments just don't match. If this happens to
you, it is important that you contact your AppleOne representative as soon as
possible. They will inform you what to do.
Remember that the image you present on any given assignment will affect the way
you are treated while on that assignment. The impression you give a company may
affect the length of your stay, as well as the level of satisfaction you receive!
