I enjoyed working there. I was a beta tester they were using for video game testing. Not entirely sure I can say what I tested, so all I will say is it was fun and thank them for giving me the opportunity.

You have to call in to see what shifts are available and sign up to be eligible for the shifts that you want. Then for the shifts you sign up for you have to make sure you get to the office at least 15-20min early so you can actually sign in for the shift because it’s a “first come first serve” system, so you might drive out to the office for your shift only to be told they filled all of the spots for that shift already. At the end of the day, it’s not worth the headache or hassle for minimum wage.
Points positifs
N/a

The Lead picked only the most attractive females to be team leads, The culture is great but hours are pretty much determined day by day, its super cut throat to get recognized, and even if you make it, one slow or bad day will end it. Even has the biggest ego, and they disrespect people under them.
Points positifs
Get to work in games and has great peer culture
Points négatifs
leadership has head up their but, and its super competitive and cut throat.

Status quo rules - old school in every way. A bunch of old tenured people paying themselves too much money and leaving the board wondering where the profits are.

I enjoyed the work that I did at Volt. We worked as a team. I was able to learn different aspects at the multiple positions I held, lots of encouragement from my manager and co-workers.The company started undergoing changes after the first year that I was there. There was stress of knowing where the company was heading. Constant management turn over, restructure of the mission and goals of the company give me the stress of how long will I have a job here or will the company be able to recover. Many mixed messagesAfter 4 years I had changed jobs within the company due to the downsizing and finally I was released from my position due to the downsizing.
Points positifs
People were cohesive, diversive positions, learning opportunities
Points négatifs
Constant stress in the workplace due to management turnovers and company not knowing it future.

Gone, Company was acquired by Keywords. It was one of the fastest growing, most successful companies that was ever tied to a boat anchor (Volt). As a result it was sold and proceeds were used to replace the plating on the boat anchor.

VMC is under new ownership. As such, there is a lot of change, and whether is positive or negative is yet to be determined. Currently, only the games publisher support division remains.

My time with VMC was an excellent foot in the door as a support technician and a MS vendor. Management appeared to be better the lower the level, like team mgrs, floor leads, and such. The upper management was rigid, inflexible and often harsh or punitive inappropriately.
Points positifs
Good entry level tech support job at the time
Points négatifs
No longer an MS vendor

A decent enough company to work for. The hours were spotty at best, but the managers were fun to work with and the environment was fine. Work was easy but fun

Contract work company. No benefits, just another number for them to make money. Would not recommend working Temp for this company. Horrible employee services.

Atmosphere is relaxed and there really wasn't a dress code. However, and this is a big however, obtaining and keeping work varies greatly. It is a temp agency and projects can pop up or drop any given day. All in all, pay was frequent hours were decent and if you weren't able to work there was little to no punishment for bailing on a project because of family stuff. Just let them know in advance and they'll take you off the schedule.
Points positifs
Frequent free lunches for employee appreciation days.
Points négatifs
Infrequent projects, with little opportunity for advancement.

Volt sure has some toxic clients with serious internal political problems that they encourage you to work for-- as an unwitting contractor/consultant. I'm reminded of the pld phrase: "be careful of what you ask for, because you just might get it". (Or was it "caveat emptor"?) Some stong advice: be careful about letting Volt "professional services" recruiting front-end "revise/improve" your resume; the more detailed it is, the greater likelyhood of mispelled words, incomplete phrases, incomprehensible sentences, and painfully redundant content. [really BAD stuff]. You will spend much time undoing the damage, and meanwhile the Client(s) they are (allegedly) presenting you to, end up seeing the trashed/garbage version of your resume. I spent many days reconstructing it in their suggested fomat, just to even be presentable.

Video game testing is a great start to a career in the gaming industry. There is plenty of room for advancement, especially for someone who is willing to study scripting languages and so forth. Volt (or at least the department where I worked) was a good work environment, with a great team and wonderful management. Easily 5 stars.
Points positifs
Everything
Points négatifs
Nothing
