Some fun facts about Aquent:
I have been working at Aquent full-time (More than 3 years)
Great company culture with a lot of opportunity if you push yourself. Management that has ears to hear, and respects your point of view. Benefits that continue to amaze me with how well my family and I are covered. Most companies talk work/life balance but time off at Aquent is encouraged to recharge.
With a lot of innovation constantly in the works there are a lot of new tools to learn, new processes to be done, and lots of work that distracts from your main job. The cons at Aquent are minimal overall.
Advice to Management
Limit the number of times sales and agents are asked to update/change/initiate a new process. Try something and stick with it for a quarter to see if it works. This allows your employees to focus on either sales or meeting with new talent.
I applied online. I interviewed at Aquent (Portland, OR) in March 2017.
phone interview, 2 in person video conference interview and writing sample. The initial interviews were great, the poor experience comes from the lack of follow up from the recruiter. After spending over 5 hours in the recruitment process, the lack of respect to return phone calls or emails to receive notification of position status was disappointing. No response was ever given.
