Aerotek - False jobs

Aerotek in Bloomington Illinois is unprofessional liars who prey upon the unemployed people in this community, that like to play games.they called me cause i applied for a job a week later they called me in for an interview well i dont have money for gas cause im unemployed and he says well if you cant come in today i dont know if the position will be open, so i get money drive 45 minutes away, i get there and the guy im interviewing with is in a meeting with someone else forceing me to wait on this d*ckweed, that didnt get me anywhere, there was better applicants. month later i see a job i know i have experience and im the right guy perfect fit i call the guy im talking to tells me since i have interviewed with someone there he could not talk to me and i would have to call back monday,"now if there is a job opening and you are a recruiter and your supposed to fill that job thats what you *** do wether or not you interviewed with someone else or not, they're making that company wait that much longer" waht the *** is going on with this company. It dont stop with this company its all of them so called staffing agencies, they are all or 99.8% of them are liars, f*cks ups, nimrods, whatever. I can honestly say i would radther deal with a used car salesmen than deal one of this low life pathetic *** again and i hate *** salsmen. actually i radther be locked in a cage with a *** pissed off starving grizzly high on coke than either. but thanks for reading

It is a bad thing when these staffing agencies screw with us this way! I would only insist on checking the reviews of such agencies before we join them. TrimOrg for example is an apt place where employees, agencies and Companies can check the scores of these staffing agencies so that those who work and those who pay them will not be fooled in the process.

Maybe if you knew how to spell you'd get a job. On second thought, learning to spell wouldn't help because your attitude will prevent you from getting, or keeping a good job

I have been through 6 jobs and I'm only going to be 21! After about 3 jobs I applied at Aerotek because everyone said it will help me out. Well months passed and many phone calls to them asking about what jobs I can do. They always said they haven't found any...

My questions might sound weird, but here it goes. I had an interview at the Aerotek office yesterday. After that, I waited in a room for all other interviews that needed to be done that day. The people that made the cut, had to fill out a bunch of paperwork, like personal info, W-4, direct deposit info, etc. Then, right from there I had to take a drug test. I was told I would be called today to be given a time to meet at the company I will be "working" for an orientation tomorrow. I still have not been told that I have the job. I ASSume, that they are waiting for drug test and background results.

Do they normally have you go through all of this process before knowing that they are going to hire you?

Once hired, do I work for Aerotek or the company I will actually be doing work for? Who will my employer be? I received papers on benefits, but it was from Aerotek. When I tried to ask questions, he just said, we will talk about all of that later...and never did.

Is there a probation period, then I will work for the company I am actually doing work for? I really need this job, but I want to know what to expect. The ad said that the starting salary was $10.00 an hour, but yesterday, she said it just changed to $11.00. Everything is sounding too good to be true and going really fast. I will say, I am the one that made follow up calls to get the interview, they did not return phone calls. I am not complaining, just throwing it out there, that if YOU want it, YOU have to go get it.

What are some good questions that I should ask tomorrow at the orientation?

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions..

Ryan Landmier @ Arden Hills MN Aerotek

Very very bad experience with Ryan. He would not pick up his phone for days, leave messages but no return calls. Upon leaving my assignment, I find it very hard to work with Ryan again. Always give me the low blow saying jobs would open up in days. Kept calling for months. Finally had a cousin call and days later he got the job and Ryan told him that he is looking for more. So I call and got the " They are full right now B.S" At first when you are new to Aerotek they will make it seem like they are your friends but once you complete an assignment, you are basically SOL on finding a new job with them. My suggestion, find a permanent job while you are working for Aerotek.

One happy story doesnt do it for me. You can rest assured you are one of the few satisfied customers.

Aerotek is famous for screwing its contractors and i am happy for you satisfied customer, but you can disagree with me when you've walked a mile in my shoes.

I challenge you dissatisfied customers and do like myself in reaching out to the media as well as all state and federal representatives. Find out who they are and start making phone calls and writing letters.

I completely disagree with both of you. Ryan has been the very best recruiter I have worked with. He was able to find me a perfect position which I was later hired on full time.

I noticed that they do not return calls unless you complain to their corporate office and then just offer excuses. They also pay no attention to jobs posted for on their website.

CLUELESS at best. Negligent and useless too.

I had Ryan as my recruiter too. That is his trademark, and I totally agree with you. If you don't mind my asking, what assignment was that for?

Aerotek crooks

on my 2nday at work from aerotek I got my wallet stolen, aerotek did not do anything about it. I had to resort to the police. Aerotek said that they couldnt not do anything about my wallet being stolen. how can a company not guarantee your safety and personal belongings at your workplace. they asked the other somalian emoyees at arizant healthcare which is where i was working at in eden prairie, MN of course the somalians said nothing.....I guess theives stick together. HR said that if no one confessed they would not do anything about it. I then said that if they wouldnt. i could contact an attorney to explore legal options and they immediately were taking about terminating me. well I QUIT!!! I cannot work at a company that employs theives!!!

Bad company to work for period!!! Was told I would be elligible for health benefits 3 months from my start in August.

I went to enroll in November and they told me I would have to wait until open enroll in Dec. My total health and dental came to 120.00 per week. I get my second weekly paycheck and they deducted double the benefits 220.00. When I called to find out why they said I was elligible in November so they had to backdate benefit payments.

They did this without notifying me and now I am behind on bills. When I said I didn't need November benefits and to refund my money back they said there was nothing they can do. So I had no money for the holidays and had to borrow money just to eat.

Very unprofessional, and just a horrible thing to do. All I got was "I'm sorry that they gave you the wrong information".

Aerotek - Foreclosure specialist

Technically Aerotek hired me to work for Wells Fargo bank to process foreclousures. Once hired, most of what I did was loan processing and assisting with the conversion of loans, even though I was in the FC dept. Aerotek told me the position was "temp to Perm" and that I could expect a permanent position after about six months -- if they liked me. I was worked to the bone at Wells Fargo. I worked around 50 hrs per week most weeks-- the pressure to meet crazy deadlines was unblieveable. Then, I found out that even though there were around 25 temps working in that department (all Aerotek employees), there were only 7 permanent positions available. Those of us "interested" in a permanent position were encouraged to "apply".

you spelled foreclosures wrong. but i digress...you do realize that aerotek is only a staffing agency...once you are placed at the client then it is up to the CLIENT to determine your hours.

not aerotek. you obviously dont have a clear understand of how aerotek works.

I worked for Aerotek from Knoxville, TN. They were very good to me.

I always got paid on time. The only odd thing was the 1st recruter I had left all of a sudden, then the 2nd one left all of a sudden.

Maybe the problem is who Aerotek hires to hire people. :?

Aerotek - What a farud!!

What a fraud! They said I had a job with Wells Fargo - no job or return phone calls or replies to emails by - Brady Green - what a liar! I went through the entire hiring process; durg test, finger prints, multiple interviews, countless hours filling out the paperwork, emails that said I had the job and start date and contact person and adress where to report. What is most frustrating is the promises made salary to be paid and then nothing! No courtesy calls or emails as to an explanation! I definitely will be filing a complaint with the appropriate regulatory authorities.

No regulatory agency will help you. You have to contact a civil attorney and file breach of contract or promissory estoppel lawsuit. That is what I did.

Aerotek did it again

I am very cautious the last time I accepted a position from Aerotek I got burned and burned bad. I was working for Jacobs Engineering on site at NASA in Houston TX. Aerotek from Huntsville Called me and told me they had a very long term contract close to home so I turned in my notice at Jacobs went to the new position in Huntsville, Al and was laid off just a few weeks later, I was out moving expenses, out 1400 dollars for the apartment I had to rent and was unemployed, not to mention the gas and motel I had to get on my way from Texas.

Your only option is to sue Aerotek as I did and won. Find a civil attorney and sue Aerotek for Breach of Contract and Promissory Estoppel. You will win!

Aerotek, Be honest with us. Just kidding

I went to Interview for this company and they had told me to be as honest as possible with them and be yourself. I did as they asked and then they told me that I was not polished enough. They will also ask you questions that they know have no answer to and want to see you stress out so you just make up an answer. I had to make up a couple because they say tell us some negatives about yourself. I said I do not have any negatives. Next they said we will wait until you think of one. They waited and I gave them the first negative I could think of. After the interview they told me that my negatives were a little too negative and not good. I recommend you sit there and not say anything if you want a job. Be a robot that is the kind of person they want. Someone with great speaking skills but terrible work ethic.

Aeroteks sucks and I am surprised that the Moderators allow so many fake comments from the same PR firm

The other commenters are right. That must have been your first interview, otherwise you would realize that employers always ask you to mention a few positives and negatives about yourself.

It's really more of a test of your poise and preparation. There are countless books and websites offering interview preparation tips, which would give you an idea of what kind of questions to generally expect on interviews. Hint: saying you have NO negatives about yourself is too evasive, and saying something overly honest such as "I drink to much" is TMI. Such a question is a chance for you to put a spin on a potentially negative attribute, to something more positive.

You just can't adopt this "I'm a victim" attitude, because that won't get you hired. Employers are looking for the best fit for their company, not someone who sulks and is ill-prepared.

You need to do some research or get training on interview skills, because these are very common questions that you need to know how to answer. You never tell them that you have no negatives, because everyone does.

Almost every comapny I've interviewed with has asked me to tell them some negative things about myself, and what you learn from any interviewing guides, how-to's, websites, etc, is that you need to be able to talk about something negative that you resolved or overcame in some way. Mine is that I used to be shy and scared to talk in front of people, but I started volunteering to give presentations and training, and soon I felt comfortable speaking in front of big groups of people.

It sounds like they were actually giving you some interview tips. You should be yourself and be honest in an interview, while still being professional.

And your "negatives" should actually be something that has been resolved to actually be positive or something like "I work too hard". I like to use "I used to be bad about procrastinating, but I have since began making lists for everything I need to do and it has actually made me more organized".

Interviewing 101 right there. They should have been a little more specific about this if that is what they were trying to do for you though.

Aerotek - Who are these guys?

Received a phone call from the guys at Aerotek telling me that they wanted to finish my profile that they started???? I never talked to these people before in my life - how did they start a profile. They told me they found my resume on Monster.Com and decided I would be a good match to some call center positions they had available. Thanks but no thanks - I know that I was looking for a job - but not in a call center and don't feel that I need a recruiting company giving my information out to just anywhere! This should be stopped somehow!

you gave out your information by placing your resume on monster.com All recruiting companies like Aerotek have acess to all resumes on monster. They don't "give your information out to just anyone" you did that. They are actually trying to find you a positon because they make money from placing you.

Aerotek is only concerned in satisfying their client. They have no interest in actually matching employees with good employers. Nor do they care about your safety, health or satisfaction on the job. They are no better than a mafia, if you want the job you have to go...

Aerotek gives people an opportunity with companies. They give everyone an equal and fair chance.

The people who post on these things negatively more than likely have a poor work ethic. They shoot their employees strait like they did for me and give feedback. They dont blow smoke up your ***, they tell you the truth about your performance that they receive from their clients that you worked for. Learn a positive work ethic, dont *** b/c you dont have any.

If you did well in the job you wouldn't be fired. Dont be mad at them for giving you a chance and you blowing it. They do care about their contractors that work form them.

Ive seen it and experienced it. I was once one.
