    I worked at Aerotek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't rave enough. The recruiters and staff are so helpful, nice, and found me a job FAST. I was hired on full time and they were happy for me. I would not have this awesome job without them.

    Cons

    I don't call this a con but it's making me put something. Recruiters change quite often, but only because they advance to other things or leave to spend family time. You can't call that a con, that's normal. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When recruitment review my resume they offered me a higher paying position. I received really good pay. The shifts are 8 hrs and that in itself is a plus.

    Cons

    No training or support. Placed in a position with no knowledge of process.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time

    Pros

    - Good way to start recruiting without much experience
    - You are able to work on several positions
    - Decent environment
    - Contractors are generally given a good experience
    - Will teach you about sales

    Cons

    - Earning potential here is not high
    - Overtime is constantly expected, and needed, to even survive at a pay rate of $12.25/hour. Most employees average 55-60 hours per week yet it is never enough. The only reason the starting pay is listed as $33K is because that is your estimated income at 48 hours+/week
    - Aerotek can be your only commitment. There is no work life balance, even if you plan something in advance odds are your job will be in jeopardy if you don't cancel them to go work on a Saturday or stay until 8pm
    - Promised salary of 50k is more often than not held back from recruiters, and management will add on additional "tasks" for them to "earn it"
    - Negativity is a huge issue
    - Your day will be micromanaged; if there's a 10 minute gap between your outbound calls you better have an explanation

    Advice to Management

    Management makes many unrealistic promises to clients without the recruiter's knowledge or input. And managers only get 1 or 2 recruiters to support their business, yet they are undervalued and rarely receive help. Follow your principles internally, not just with contracted employees.

    Pros

    Autonomy to do what you need to do in a day with a lot of people looking out and helping make sure you achieve those goals. You can't make more money anywhere else

    Cons

    There really aren't any. You have to be self accountable and want to win. It's not easy, but the benefits and sense of accomplishment are unlike any other career

    Pros

    The culture is great. Management is eager to assist you and they give you all the proper training you need to be successful. They go above and beyond for their employees and in turn, employees go above and beyond for our clients. Management encourages you to do side-by-sides with people from different departments so you can get a better understanding of he company and how it functions.

    Cons

    To be honest there is not a con in my opinion. My experience has been completely great. The only thing I would change would be the Regional Controller at the West Coast Corporate location, Lauren Schneider. She sometimes has a tendency to "bad mouth" individuals to her peers and other co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
