    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aerotek.

    The phone interview was very easy. They make you feel comfortable, and ask you common sense questions. You start off with talking about your resume, and then talk about your behaviors.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aerotek (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    One ten minute conversation with the office recruiter, followed by a twenty-five minute conversation with the office recruiter asking behavioral questions (tell me about a time you didn't get along with a coworker and how you handled it/etc.). After that, I had an in person interview with the Director of the office, who then invited me back for a half day shadow. During the half day shadow, I spent about an hour with two separate recruiters, thirty minutes with the Director again, and an hour with an Account Manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should we hire you? How do you handle conflict? Why recruiting? How do you respond to feedback? Are you competitive? If you had your name and number on a board with everyone else, would that bother you? What have you heard about Aerotek? Why are you leaving your current industry?   Answer Question

    Interview

    Super unstructured just asked you some basic questions on who you are to try to assess your fit in the company. Want to make sure you are passionate about sales because the recruiter role transitions to sales and they want to see how you fell about working long hours.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aerotek (Tampa, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online to the job post, then the recruiter called me and set up an in person interview. When I got to Aerotek the recruiter took a long time to get me. Once he got out he took me to a room and immediately started talking very fast. He kept insisting that the job was fast paced and needed someone who can handle that. My current job was very fast paced and was also recruiting but he didn't listen to me and kept asking me the same question " so what do you recruit for??" He went over the position briefly and quick. I asked about the commission, he could not give me the amount or percent of commission that I would earn, instead he kept spewing out numbers "1200- 1500-3200" I kept asking what those numbers meant and he could not articulate properly how their commission works. All he said was "when you get to a certain amount you'll get a 50K salary" again I asked HOW but he repeatedly could not tell me other than spewing out random numbers. He also said that work starts at 7:30AM HE does not leave until 7PM and continues to work from home until 10 PM, he said that they will ACCOMODATE for people with children but people usually stay until minimum 6PM. By the end he told me that he didn't even know if they had open positions and would get with his HR coordinator and internal recruiter to see if they had a position. This person was incredibly unprofessional, could not carry an intelligent conversation about their own job, nor was an internal recruiter. I felt like I was a stat for his week just so he can tack off that he had an interview. I am very disappointed with the company and the lack of professionalism from the individual.

    Interview

    I started by emailing a recruiter when I found her email. She walked me through the application process. I had an over the phone interview, then was asked to come to an in-person interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aerotek (Albuquerque, NM).

    Interview

    A few years ago, I had 3 separate interviews, one of which was a half-day spending time at the office and seeing what all the recruiters do. My complaints are: 1) I got asked the same questions multiple times and didn't have any different answers (I guess they didn't take notes from my previous answers?), 2) after spending that much time interviewing and meeting lots of different people, I didn't really get any feedback about why I didn't get the job. I had to contact them to find out where I was in the process and if I got the job, and then it was really just a "no"; and 3) they asked me lots of times if I had questions for them, but if I emailed them the questions after the interview (instead of asking them during), I never got an answer. All in all, not impressed with the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aerotek.

    Interview

    Phone screen and then an interview at their office. Phone screen asks a lot of personality questions. For someone to work at a high volume place like Aerotek you need blinders and a go get it attitude. Overall one of the easiest interviews I will ever go on. In my time everyone that interviewed was hired. If you have a good head on you and a good personality then youll get the job offer. A favorite phrase is "if you had a great waiter out to dinner ask them if they want a job"

    Entry Level Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aerotek (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview was a 30 min phone interview with a senior internal recruiter. I was asked a lot of behavioral based questions (tell me about a time when...). She was very friendly, was not trying to trick me in any way and even gave me some great feedback about how to answer questions and tips for what to expect if I were to move on.
     2 weeks later I was called in to the office to interview with one executive director and an account manager. They probably would have called me in sooner but I was told they were out of town. This interview was like nothing I had done before. They dug into every little part of my past. They actually started as far back as high school, asking me about extra curriculars and my grades. They questioned my relationships with my previous managers, any gaps in my resume and the truth behind my motivation to succeed. It was all very in depth and it felt almost like an interrogation. They also asked me to give them exact figures regarding how much I saved up for College before I attended and how many calls I thought the recruiters made every day. Every time I answered they made me feel like those numbers were wrong, but to be honest I graduated high school years ago and theres no way I could remember exact numbers.
     The interview lasted 2 hours but it seemed like time went by really fast. During that whole time I was only asked 6 behavioral based questions and they werent too difficuilt to answer. I would recommend practicing using the STAR method and definitely triple checking your resume. They will focus on dates and even your home address. The managers were very professional and really friendly. They made it clear that they were being super selective and that was evident.
    Although I was not offered the position I feel like this was still a good learning experience. By diggin into my values and my past I ended up learning things about myself and I felt more confident about what im doing. I was recommended for a different position and hopefully that works out for me.
