    I have been working at Aerotek full-time

    Pros

    Young demographic that are similar to you for the most part if you get hired.

    Cons

    Long hours and you don't really make money unless you are there for a long time or are in the right situation.

    Advice to Management

    Relax, this industry is extremely competitive and there are not a lot of candidates to go around.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They found me a job I guess. Nothing really great about them actually.

    Cons

    They don't care about you if you are a contractor. They just want me make as much money from you as possible. They don't offer you holiday pay. The lab that I work at has a lot of holidays, so I ended up having to either work extra hours (sometimes three 12 hour day + one 4 hour day) to make up the hours or you lose your pay. Health insurance is expensive; you are better off just getting your own private health insurance. They recruiter doesn't care about your interest. Working for aerotek sucks. I just can't wait until my contract is over.

    I worked at Aerotek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None unless you're looking for a very short term position to pay the bills while actively seeking employment elsewhere.

    Cons

    No vacation, holiday pay or assurance that they will do anything beyond put you into a position and collect their commission weekly while you're in it. Benefits are almost non existent and what is offered isn't financially feasible.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your recruiters and those they recruit. Without good relationships word of mouth will ruin your reputation quicker than ethically bankrupt businesses you place people in. Good luck staying in business with such lackluster treatment of people.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Built strong relationships with co-workers in addition to hiring managers and businesses in addition to learning how to work with a variety of personalities.

    Cons

    Work/life balance Unrealistic expectations (metrics) Too much micro-managing and hand-holding (was extremely annoying) Very Cliquey

    Advice to Management

    Revise your training program and create an environment where there isn't such a hierarchy (recruiter vs. manager). Allow more development opportunities instead of just Recruiter II, ARM or Sales. Have strong management in place, my DBO was all over the place and it was hard to look to him for leadership or guidance. Overall, work here if you are in your early twenties and can do happy-hour's every night after work, and don't have any commitments at home, otherwise it's a joke.

    I worked at Aerotek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch every once in a while.

    Cons

    They call you at all hours of the day/night, regardless of your shift schedule, lie about opportunities to advance just to get you in the door. Once I found a new position and put in my two weeks, they let me go on the spot, tried to screw me out of some owed benefits claiming that I did not report to work during my last 2 weeks...of course I didn't, they told me not to show up! They really do live up to their nickname... "aeroTAKE"

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating all of your contractors like absolute lowlifes. Most are, but some are not.

    I worked at Aerotek as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They find you a job fast. They match you with a job to fit your skill set. They pay you every week.

    Cons

    Not upfront about the length of your contract. They don't warn you when you contract is about to end. The recruiters don't communicate with each other about your situation.

    Advice to Management

    Please have the recruiters communicate with each other about the employees situation. Explain the length of each contract and try to warn people weeks before their contract is about to end.

    I have been working at Aerotek as a contractor

    Pros

    Help you find a job and guide you through the interview process

    Cons

    You are pretty much left on your own after you get the job. There are no benefits, no paid holidays.You salary is pretty much half of what you will make if you were hired by the company

    Advice to Management

    Consider the position you are recruiting for and adjust the pay based on that instead of offering a standard base pay with no benefits.


  10. Job satisfaction depends on the client company, not the temp agency, so choose your assignments wisely.

    I worked at Aerotek as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have placed me in assignments that have increased my experience in my desired field of work.

    Cons

    Very little contact from agency once in an assignment. Benefits are minimal, health insurance offered is very expensive for the coverage of plan. At end of assignment it's hard to collect unemployment since they say you "quit" even when you follow their procedures to call to see if there are any jobs available.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better benefits like holidays the same as client does since we lose a day of pay otherwise. Offer vacation accruement before 1 year of working -- everyone deserves a day off once in a while. And since there is no such thing as a sick day in your temps' world this "vacation" day will mostly likely be used to go to the doctor.
