I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They had good jobs and knew a lot of companies in the city. It allowed me to interview for a lot of different place.

Cons

IT can be hard to get responses from them sometimes. Account managers are working with so many different people, they occasionally get confused.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great learning experiences, real world business experience, good salary right out of college.

    Cons

    Manager's attitude, little to no commission, respect for junior employees. I spent 4 years in the Military, one being in a war zone and was treated as a child upon hire. Being several years older than most Managers and having more life experience that can be difficult to being "talked down" to.
    You are expected to make 100+ phone calls a day. The job is to put people to work, so if you put 5 people to work a week, they as you why you didn't make 500 calls. If you make 500 calls, they ask why you didn't put anyone to work. Can be frustrating and the threshold for commission is quite long. Turnover rate is 4-6 months per person on average.
    Also, being a younger office, there is always mental and sexual drama between co-workers.
    The hours are awful. Work day is 7:30-6pm, that's roughly 53 hours. My work day was 7-7, as you are frowned upon if you arrive before 7:15 or leave before 6:30. Weekends also apply in busy seasons. A lot of "unwritten rules".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training exercises. Hire older professionals that have a proven track record, instead of college kids that quit in their first 6 months. A lot of companies don't want to deal with a "sales executive" that is 23 years old.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great beginer job, opportunity to learn a lot about business. There is the opportunity to make a decent living if you are working with a good team.

    Cons

    As Aerotek continues to grow leadership is implementing more and more ways to micromanage. Aerotek hires mostly out of college so everyone is young and loves to do happy hours and social events, if you have a family this may be hard as you must put in countless hours into the job to be successfull
