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

Pros

There is no better way to jump start a recruiting career than by working with a nationally reknown staffing agency like Aerotek. Think of it as a recruiting boot camp. They have excellent training and there is opportunity if you are willing to work for it.

Cons

These are young offices and many of the senior employees in the company have never worked outside of Aerotek. Be ready to play the office politics if you want to move up in the company.

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

    Pros

    Good job to have right out of college if you can stick it out for 1 year.
     Easy to get into. Started when I was 22.
    Good Resume starter
    It's a grind so you learn a lot.
    Taught me what I DON'T want to be as a manager/leader
    Taught me to not hang out with other employees

    Cons

    Young offices
    VERY political.
    They don't train the Account Managers on how to be LEADERS
    slave drivers
    low salary
    bad incentives
    working 50-60 hour work weeks with extremely low pay
    high turnover
    if you happen to get on a team with someone who has been there a while with high spread, chances are your spread will not grow. low spread = no bonus
    Dont care about employees
    A lot of unprofessional activity within the office

    Advice to Management

    Train the account managers on how to LEAD not be a slave driver
    Remove Alcohol from events to keep things profession
    have better Incentive recruiters. Making $32k a year working 60 hours work weeks is AWEFUL.
    CARE for your employees
    APPRECIATE your employees
    BE HONEST
    RESPECT your employees

    I lead a nursing home community and have been with my current company for 3 years making $104k/year PLUS bonuses. I have a great work life balance.

    I have been working at Aerotek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good Foundational training in recruiting
    -Found a job that paid me twice as much as Aerotek after a year in an internal recruiting function.

    Cons

    -Account Managers aren't trained on how to manage so try breaking people down into working harder.
    -Slave Drivers
    -Constant confrontation
    -Too many unnecessary meetings that take away from time spent on important things
    -Too Political
    - Hazing in the workplace isn't necessary
    -No accountability amongst the hire ranks, particularly demoted Account Managers and DBO's that have a lot of stock in the company.
    -Major attrition, if you have 1.5 years of tenure in the San Jose office you are a Senior Recruiter.
    -Allow age discrimination to occur with clients they support.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers on how to manage. Change the DBO in this office. It's not working!
