I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

It gets you a job with better than average pay for San antonio labor force. Benefits are not much use when you have a $600 deductible on doctors visits, then only covers 70% after that. But, to some people, it's better than none.

Cons

You work side by side with the "regular" Toyota Team Members but for 25% less. Toyota pays Aerotek the regular employee rate of pay per employee. Toyota's advantage is that it can keep a clean slate of saying they don't lay anyone off, when in fact, they just cut the temp help. Aerotek lays off, not Toyota. Toyota Policy, 60% Regular Toyota workers to 40% Aerotek (and other contract help).
Toyota is breaking american work ethics that reward equal work for equal pay. Due to Aerotek misleading many workers, implying they were eligible for hire after 6 months, lots started to quit after a year or longer. Aerotek was forced to give $1 raise. But now, people have waited three years and Toyota gives raises and bonus's to regular workers that far outreach what Aerotek is giving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What it shows is that Toyota mistreats workers in America just as Japan mistreats its own workers. Toyota Trucks cost more than any other brand. But, 50% or more of Toyota workers can't afford to buy one. There is serious discrimination in what few people are hired, Aprox 50 last year out of 1000 temp workers. I think it brings to reality that why should people buy Toyota when it treats it's workers with such lack of respect. It does reduce quality when there is such prejudice on the work floor.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, as well as a fun working environment. Things at corporate are very loose which allows for you to smile a lot throughout the day.

    Cons

    A lot of broken promises. Your supervisors tend to tell you one thing but then turn around and do the opposite. If you are not a suck-up, you are viewed as a problem. Too much favoritism takes place and it's blatant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to how supervisors treat the associates. It's easy to pin-point which ones are terrible leaders. Also, please promote internally more, it's aggrivating to see outsiders getting promotional jobs while not allowing your in-house staff to get the chance.

    Pros

    Coworkers are young so you can easily relate to your coworkers. Can be yourself at work. Company outings. Chance to network. Great training. Little to no micromanaging (really depends on the account manager you're under).

    Cons

    NO work life balance. Underpaid for the amount of work done. Have to interview for EVERY SINGLE POSITION you apply for within the company. Plenty of offices nationwide, but if you want to transfer you have to interview for the same position you are already in. If they find out you're looking for work you will be fired. Non compete has to be signed before starting work. 50 + hour work week at least (salaried, so no overtime). Takes forever to receive commission status. VERY stressful most of the time. The don't really hire older people (older to this company is 26 and up). They prefer recent college graduates. Feels like a cult. Recruiter workload is very heavy with an insane to do list, so it's impossible to do everything they ask AND provide great customer service at the same time. Your success will be determined by the division you are in and the number of recruiters in that division. This job/company will come before everything in your life to be successful there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher base salaries for recruiters. Actually train the Account Managers to be managers, because many of them have no idea how to supervise. Don't avoid seasoned candidates just because you want to start everyone off at $33,000/yr. Stop aiming for a "young office only" attitude and find some good recruiters that have previous experience. Stop releasing so many initiatives all at once so we can remember at least one of them and how they could benefit us.
