    I have been working at Aston Carter as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aston Carter, via recruiter Jessica Eaton, really came through for me. My recruiter not only got me the salary that I wanted, but she was able to get my start date pushed back so that I could have more time to handle a family tragedy.
    Jessica was very hands-on during the employment process. She is conscientious, professional and very easy to work with. Jessica vowed to find a job for me - and she did just that! Her follow-thru is tremendous. I could not be more satisfied. Thank you, Jessica - and thank you, Aston Carter!

    Cons

    I didn't switch agencies sooner.

    I have been working at Aston Carter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aston Carter is the accounting and finance division of Aerotek. Aerotek is a HUGE and well known Recruiting firm and the Aston Carter division has been around for around 3 years now. Whats great about that is you get a start up feel with a huge company supporting you. Its really the best of both worlds.

    In the position you recruit on accounting and finance positions. Once you perfect recruiting you are put into different classes to help you move into a Account Manager position. The cool part is it doesn't matter how long you have been with the company. If you are producing you will get promoted within a year over the person who has been recruiting for two. If you like to work hard and see a fast return its a great entry level position!

    Cons

    Down side it is a lot of hours. But luckily the culture really makes up for it. The people here are what makes working a little bit of longer hours worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what youre doing. I have never seen a director that cares and wants to see his people succeed more than Tyler Ellis.
