Aerotek gave me false hope.

About a year ago I was sent to work at Stihl through Aerotek and I was promise I would get hired after 4 months. Guess what it never happened. Stihl used me and then got laid off.So thet left a voice mail on my phone. I recently had a interview with Aerotek and the guy told me I didnt qualify for a job because it was to far for me to drive. REALLY come on! There are a joke trust me! I will never deal with them again they make money off you and then give you false hope!

It's Stihl's decision to hire or not, so you can't blame your temp agency for not 'forcing' their client to hire you. You should be mad at Stihl.

I took a temp to hire job with Aerotek, I was told I had to work whatever the hours were or not take the job. Turned out to be 70 hours at 12 hour days 6 days a week.

I got injured on the job due to another employees not following procedure, the next day I was put on light duty and Aerotek fired me on the spot. Now a year later I am still fighting their insurance carrier who refuses to allow me to go to a doctor for followup unless I contact the state industrial commission, each request to see a doctor takes at least 6 months to get permission and endless threats from the state.

Bottom line they are bottom feeders, they lie, and will not honor a contract unless you threaten to quit or take it to the client, I have done both and when you do they tow the line. Knowing who and what they are going in is like using lube, it doesn't hurt near as bad when they stick it to you.

If your term is shortened and is less than what Aerotek says, that is the company that you are working fors fault! Why would Aerotek shorten a position?!

The company is the one paying the bills, not the person that is on contract. It is in Aerotek's best interest to get the best people the job so that the company (client) they are working for is happy.

Aerotek does not create jobs, they fill jobs that other companies have.

When they wanted me for a 3D position that was a very tough fit in Richmond I couldn't get rid of these used car salesmen. Now that they get almost as much from it as I do I can't get a soul to contact me after multiple tries.

Have had three case managers come and go in 5 months only meeting the first. Aerotek told me it was a 6 month contract but just told the company that contracted me it was for 9.

WOW! Run away.

Man I had the SAME issue w/ them too!!! Also when it came down to looking for a job close to home in a 30 mile area.....

GET THIS..... I live in Orange Park so they decide to place me all the way in St. Augustine past the beaches... After my interview I logged in the their database and found 3 jobs in Jax 20 miles away for my home and I had the same credentials they were looking for.

I called/E-mailed.... You and I may have been the main office when they pulled this *** on you.

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..

Aerotek

Aerotek in Cleveland, Ohio. I took a position through this staffing agency in the winter of 2010, the pay was below average but in this economy you do what you have to do. (1) They lied about the position I applied for. It end up being an entry level seasonal position on 2nd and 3rd. Not the team leader 1st shift advertised and promised. (2) Every pay check was 2 weeks late!! and direct deposit never happened. (3) Every time I call or went to the Cleveland office to try and fix things the rep was rude and vulgar with me. (4) When I did call to give notice of quitting I was threatened with never working in the state of Ohio ever again. (5) Last Paycheck was never paid and I am now filing in small claims court. You're better off working at your local MC D's, at least you'll get paid and fed.

Ocatvio, come on buddy...you are a bitter ex-employee.I'm sure if beer was flowing at Aerotek you sure did not turn it down. I've worked for Aerotek for 10 years and have never seen any beer or alcohol in the office.

Also, we have the best payroll dept.

in the business. Hey, Ocatvio, I'll swing by Taco Bell and visit you some time.Pissant.

I was a internal employee there, and i saw how they operate and they are horrible!! about the missing checks and direct deposit is totally true, they have poorly trained and skilled people taking care of peoples checks and money, and they messed them up all the time, and yes the dont care about it.

To be honest what can you expect of a company that eveybody starts drinking beer at 12pm on Friday?? I definetely will never use aerotek becsaue i worked there and i know what it is.

Aerotek - Do not trust

I have been unemployed for several months. A person at aerotek called and i went in and did all of the required paper work. I had one contract job through aerotek and it did not work out. Also they did not pay what was agreed on.it took me one month to get my money for two weeks work and several phone calls. these people do not have your best interest in sight. all they are concerned with is a quota number so they can get a bonus. i have 35 yrs in maintenance 16 in management and never got an interview for what my background was. be carefull of these people.

Based on your comments and uprofessionalism i probably wouldn't want you to represent my firm at a client site either. Most of the people that complain on here sound the same way. Not like someone i would want to send to a client site.

Aerotek - No es bueno

im going to kind of go off some little things with a couple bigger problems. when i applied for the position they did contact me the next day. i was told to come in for an interview. it wasnt so much as an interview, seeing as how to this day i have never met the guy i was supposed to interview with. they just threw me in a room with a few other people and did new hire paperwork. whatever, interviews suck anyway, right? i still found it to be unprofessional. do they seriously just hire anyone no questions asked?? after that i didnt hear from them for 2 weeks, which from talking to other people is about normal. then they wanted me to start THAT day, i agreed to start the next day. minor problem here, the address was nowhere near the zip from the job posting. when i added it up later i would have been spending about 200 a month on gas driving out there from my house. i opted to give the job a try regardless of this. the day i showed up, it all slowly started to go wrong. i met with an aerotek guy to walk me in and show me around. right off the bat they throw me into a totally different job, which was in a warehouse. when i mentioned this wasnt what i had applied for the dude simply says, oh dont worry it still pays the same! so whatever, i did it for a couple days, job sucked, hours were long. the big problem i was having is the management at this company was paying me little attention. i wasnt being trained for anything, i was just the temp. they would just send me to help one of their workers load trucks or clean all day or do busywork. not aeroteks fault exactly, i just felt like *** about the *** they got me into. by the time i started my 2nd week i knew this just wasnt working at all. at first i thought i could stick it out and get hired on, since they started their guys at 16/hr vs aeroteks 10.5/hr i got. but like i said, i was working a totally dofferent job and theres no way i wanted it as a permanent career option. i was only using aerotek and their low pay to get my foot in the door. i had started a thursday, i ended up with 20 hours that week. following week i recieve a paycheck for 16.97, payment for 1.75 hours of work. thats less than a dollar an hour and doesnt even pay for the gas i used driving out there.heres the big problem with aerotek. no one ever calls me back, i dont even know if the recruiter guy can or cares to fix it. the site they use to log hours has a tech support number listed:555-555-5555. which call me crazy but i dont think thats a real number hahaha. there is no number on the paperwork with the check either. there should be one final check coming next week, im not sure if it will be corrected on that. not expecting it since its a new pay period, or if this one will even be right itself. all thats left i suppose is to call various aerotek numbers and see if i get anywhere, p.i.t.a.!! i did get one customer service number from this site i can try however! the problem is the only log of hours is online, by me. the managers where i was working were never around when i showed up or left, so my word is the only real record of all the hours i worked. from what i have read with aerotek can be very bad news and will likely be out of luck. i would think things like this wouldnt be an issue, i thought if the company doesnt pay me aerotek doesnt get paid either, but i dont know who is the one short changing me here. i no longer have access to the hours i logged online. long story short, from my experience these guys are a joke. if i get any positve updates i will be sure to come back and share.
