Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Hagerstown, MD

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aerotek.

Interview Details – Had two phone interviews and was informed later they went with other candidates. After the phone interviews they proceed to office shadowing and then interview. The process was pretty quick, they do not keeping you hanging around.

Interview Question – I got asked the same questions with both phone calls. I was multiple times do I work best with a group or as an individual.   Answer Question

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
San Jose, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aerotek.

Interview Details – First step--get referred in. Usually you have to know someone to get in--not always but this seems to be the case. You'll go through 1-3 phone screens with an internal recruiter who will put you through the ringer. If you're worried you blew it (i.e. the recruiter says, think about this then get back to me) that's normal. You're fine. Expect 1-4 in person interviews afterward in which you need to be specific in WHY aerotek. There are tons of staffing companies out there. WHY aerotek above those? Answer in the STAR method, don't be overly confident, be prepared to have every answer (literally, every one) with "What else?" Be prepared to defend your answers--this means you should be as honest as possible, so that if your answers are picked apart you don't have to make things up to cover your tail.

There was a BG check, but no drug test. The interview process is very difficult. In fact, after my first in person interview I walked away thinking I didn't get it--but that's just their style. They push you hard, so be prepared.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you failed/What was the most difficult decision you've had to make?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Bay area, CA = 50k base. Rest of the country is about 33k base.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aerotek in June 2014.

Interview Details – Started with a phone screening which was basic what you look for in a company and just a little about yourself. Next you do an in person which you could meet with the Director or just Account Managers. That is more situational all about you getting to know you and personal experience. Basically getting to know them not difficult just be yourself. Lastly, there is a half day which is all just seeing how you interact with the people there and if you would be a good fit. Ask a ton of questions and be very engaging and interested and you'll be fine.

Interview Question – There really weren't any questions that stumped me. What's your weakness is always a hard one. They asked me what am I not good at?   Answer Question

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Elkridge, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aerotek in May 2014.

Interview Details – I wasted 6 hours of my life, 2 interviews and a half day of job shadow... ZERO feedback even with follow up e-mails. I hope I can help someone from wasting their time. Not only does it seem like a terrible place to work but since then, I've worked with other recruiters who actually seem to care about helping a company find an appropriate person for the position instead of commission. Officeteam and Kennedy.

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Bellevue, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Aerotek in April 2014.

Interview Details – This was one of the worst interview experiences I have had in my entire life. The interview was incredibly unprofessional. The person that I was suppose to interview with was busy so she sent one of her representatives to conduct the interview for her. The woman who interview me had no manners and asked personal questions that made me feel uncomfortable. One question she asked was if my parents paid for my school. I answered yes and she used my answer against me later on in the interview saying that " I don't have enough passion because I grew up privileged". She also told me that I would only find a job in my future because of my "good looks" and that if I didn't have an aggressive attitude towards work then I wouldn't succeed in this job. She said that if I wanted a work-life balance that this position wouldn't be right for me because on average the recruiters at Aerotek work 14 hour days because they need to meet their sales goals. When this interview ended I emailed my interviewer and told her that I did not want to continue with the interview process and to not contact me again.

Interview Question – Did your parents pay for your college?

Interview Details – My initial interview was at a career fair. Been about a week later I went in for another interview this time with the Director of Business operations and two account managers. I was then invited back for a half day. During the half day you get to find out how the company operates and what your job would be like if offered the position. Then I spoke with the Director of Business Operations once more and went to lunch with an Account Manager. About a week later I received a call from the director business operations and received a job offer.
