Aerotek - Ridiculously Rude Staff/Useless

I spoke with Josh Sarfaty at Aerotek about a position, and he was so rude that I actually asked if he was joking. He said he was dead serious. I will never inquire about a position with them again. Job-seekers and potential clients, please avoid this joke of a company. I was definitely qualified for a position, but Josh S. refused to submit my resume because it was a "waste of his time". I've never dealt with such an unprofessional individual or company. I have never submitted a complaint like this about any company, but Aerotek pushed me over the edge.

Aerotek Very Unprofessional

I worked for a client of this company for a month in Arizona. Then I had a minor injury which was work related. Their whole attitudes changed then. The manager at the client appreciated my work and understood when I left that due to my injury I could not work there anymore. Most of the office staff at Aerotek in Phoenix were very cold towards me when I informed them I had some pain in my back related to the work. Their own doctor agreed it was work related. I only hope now they will at least pay for the doctor bill. I would never recommend this staffing company. I have worked for many smaller agencies and have had better luck.

I'm assuming you got awarded your unemployment, because the unemployment dept usually always sides with the employee, even in at will states.

Aerotek - Unprofessional

I applied for a position with Aerotek, Posted my Resume on thingamajob.com, got a call form a recruiter the very next day. He left me a voice mail saying that he received my resume online and wanted to speak with me a about a position he had available and felt I was qualified for. I returned his call and he told me nothing about the position they had to offer....instead started asking me about a company I use to work for and asked if they are still in business....WTF? Not sure if he was trying to recruit me or the company I use to work for!! This company is very unprofessional and after speaking to the recruiter...I WOULDN'T WORK FOR THEM IF IT WAS THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH!

Wow, that's what you consider unprofessional? Imagine how you would feel if they actually did something immoral, or took advantage of you in some way.

I wasn't aware asking questions was a crime in this country. I'll make a note to remember that in the future...

Aerotek - Employment Interview Review from Los Angeles, California

I recently had an interview with aerotek. The Director of Business Operations in Rosemead an Ontario, LaMark Brim. The interview went great. He liked my answer and thought they were very detailed. At the end of the interview, he asked me to call him the next day at 10am. So i did, he didnt answer. I left a message on his office vmail. Hours later, no call. So then i left a message on this cell. Again, hours later. no call. Took him two days to call me back. Just to tell me the thought i was too agressive SOheWONTgiveMEanotherINTERVIEW.

I usually stick to 1 call/day if I'm asked to call back.

Honestly I find asking the interviewee to call is a bit silly if one is expecting to be busy.

Interviewer- If you are truly the person who interviewed Mi1980, this is completely unprofessional and unethical. Interviews are completely confidential from the employer's standpoint. If you tell someone you are going to call them at a certain time, you should call them even if it is to inform them that you will call them at a later time.

Wow formulaforfitness I disagree with you. Sometimes things happen and calls are missed.

What world do you live in?

And you wouldn't take a job if there is missed timing?? Get off your HIGH HORSE!

If he was asked to phone at 10am the next day, his called should have been expected and accepted. Futhermore, 6pm is NOT to late to return someones phone call. I would not keep calling but would consider this very unprofessional behavior and would not accept a position with your firm.

This individual did have a good interview as he described.He was asked to follow at 10am and he did. As he mentioned he called back within a couple of hours and left another message.

Before the day was over this individual had left 4 messages within an 8 hour day. The day ended late on my end after full day of meetings and it was too late to consider returning calls after 6pm. This candidate was my first call the next day at 8:00am. I was calling him back well within 24 hours.

He was left a message that I was returning his call and I apologize for not getting back to him yesterday and that I had another full day of meetings. I asked him to return my call when he had a chance and if I didn't answer that just meant I was in meetings and I would call him back when I had a break. I had my cell phone on my desk the whole time I was in meetings. My partner informed me that my cell phone had been blowing up non-stop for the past 5 hours as well as my office phone.

When I check my messages this candidate had called me a total of 8 times and left 5 messages on my cell and office vmail. All within 5-6 hours the following day. I believed this was excessive. Who ever may me reading this, you can formulate your own opinion about the amount of calls before a call back.

I did return his call that same day provided him feedback on his interview and the amount of calls. He did not move to the next interview.

The same happened to me during my stint in Utah. The guy (LaMark Brim) just refuses to create a schedule and stick to it!

I do believe that the first candidate called to much, though this doesn't excuse LaMark not being able to maintain professionalism. He was probably late to his interview as well as he was with me.

I was hired by areotek to work as a oil spill clean up tech. They paid for my 24 hazwolper traing.

I live in Alabama. They sent me to MS. I was there for 5 weeks. Then they told me that because I was from AL.

not to come back to work there. They said they would try to find work for me in AL. Saw several jobs that required the hazwolper cert. I called areotek in Pensacola, FL and told them I could find work if they would give me the cert.

I was told that they didn't have to give it to me. I asked her you mean you are not going to give it to me even if it will help me find employment. She said no.

I told her I thought dhe was rude and cold hearted and she laughed. All thye really care about is making money off of you.

Just to clarify, my commission comes from my company billing the client for my work based on good candidates that I find to interview with them. In no way does the contractor pay for being recruited by me.

So think about that before you start complaining about me trying to find you a job at no expense to you. Also, I’m expected to interview 15+ people over the phone a day to gage whether or not I think your qualified and have a good attitude. That means I talk to 75+ different people a week. If you weren’t followed up with that probably means you did not present yourself very well.

Either over stating your qualifications or were not professional during the phone interview (just in case you didn’t understand it’s what a recruiter is doing when they first contact you).

During a 50 hour week that’s as busy as mine, following up with someone who I clearly do not want to work with is the last thing on my to-do list. Think about it before you start bashing a company calling you in regards to a job opportunity at no expense to you.

Aerotek - They Lied to me and threatened!

An employee of this agency told me he had a position for me and to meet for lunch. I left my current for a long lunch only to find out he had no job for me, and merely wanted to get gossip on my current company which was obviously not doing so well. Then he told me that he knew my boss and could easily tell them I was looking elswhere for work if he wanted to! So he threatened me, and lied to me, most likely just to get himself a free lunch and some gossip my sinking ship of a company. Waste of time, and very insulting!!

I *** hate aerotek cause every1 there is unbelieveably RETARTED... how ever i did get an awesome job, in my field that i went to school for.

The reason y im complaining.

My friend got the same job as me. but it took almost 3 months for him to recieve ONE paycheck.

He had a job thru them before while liveing at his old house. well he moved, got a new job thru them, he filled out all the paperwork, including the new address/location of his new house. and they used is old address, only because his name/address was already in the computer. there for hes lost some money, OOO AND lost his car/house cause he couldnt pay his *** BILLS. would the courts help? NO!, CUASE THE GOVERNMENT IS RETARTED AS WELL.

and... CBS/STAFFMARK. wow, there just as dumb.

Craigslist is the best place to look for a job. ive had 2 that i found on that site.

As "The Fed" said, Aerotek is a huge company and sometimes bad recruiter slip through the cracks. (Sounds like maybe you got one).

However, I don;t think they have to worry about being around long...they are privately owned and do a fabulous job. I have worked with Aerotek offices in the past and had great customer service and job placement.

Most recruiters consider confidentiality to strike at the heart of their business and take confidentiality very seriously, they also do not recruit out of companies that they are working for...

Sounds like you got a rotten egg of a person who likely saw his own untimely lay off...Aerotek is big and therefore probably bends the rules more than others because they can, but they are abide by the same code of ethics as other recruiters or else they won't be around very long.

Aerotek - Lack of integrity.

My *** is with AEROTEK employment services(staffing) I applied for several positions they advertised and sent my resume to them, only to have them ignore me. My resume reflected the skills and qualificationas they were looking for to satisfy thier client. Because mty resume didnt reflect any recent aerospace industry exp. they shunned me. What seperates a aerospace warehouse from any other warehouse? Is it the concrete? The smell of the product? The people? I dont get it. At any rate, Aerotek staffing gets an award for the most STUCK UP, *** UP, LOUSY staffing services around.And thats about it.

This is a pretty *** complaint:

1. I submitted my resume.

2. I KNOW I TOTALLY deserved the job. 3

3. They didn't give it to me.

4. CONCLUSION: They have no integrity.

Please breathe through your nose and carry on.

umm, they have about 8 million people applying to jobs every day...they can't hire everyone just because YOU feel your experience is what they are looking for. And, they are not working for you, they are working for the client.

Your last paragraph grabbed my curiosity. I do agree with you that a warehouse does have people, a scent, and a structure.

This would be the environment of the warehouse, which I am sure that is typical of most. Could it be the culture of the businesses that is different?

Does aerospace culture have different ethical standards, or specific safety habits, or required security clearances?

You have my curiosity. Is this where integrity is lacking?

Aerotek Sucks

I tried to use Aerotek as a professional recruiting/job placement firm and I was deeply disappointed. Their initial interviews were OK. I was excited by their enthusiasm; however I have realized through time that this is a BOGUS PHONY organization. I have contacted this organization 3-4 times over the past decade with the same results each time. THEY SUCK!!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME with these creeps. I Will Not Use this bogus phony placement firm....

They waste your time, you driving to them for a job interview which is nothing short of smoke and mirrors, and when you thinking you're going to hear back a year have past then you realize nothing came from them. I live in Indiana I have driven 1+ hour away (Illinois and southern Indiana) for a bogus interview at their "main office" just to get nothing for the time and gas investment and that happened twice.......stop using their Santa is real service.

Aerotek hires fresh from college graduates to work as recruiters. These kids have no experience in the recruiting field.

Additionally, they require their recruiters to conduct 15+ face to face interviews per week, whether they have a position for that person or not. The actively pursue obtaining applicant references so as to contact those references to see if they make them a new client.

Aerotek is limited in what it does. Don't expect a dream job, but, a job.

In this economy any job is good for something. BTW Now that the USA is a 3rd world country any job is a good job. "Wastes of time" should always be figured into any job search episode. Aerotek could be improved though.

They really should provide more and better benefits. This would improve their image.

Yep agree Aerotek is the typical staffing firm. They are a waste, not sure why anyone would pay them to find applicants when the fact is they dont have staff worth anything that can understand applicant business skills. They are literal and incompetent in their approach.

I have been contacted by 5 different recruiters from the same office over the last five years. On two occasion they asked me to come in for a pre-screening interview and I obliged.

I used 1/2 a day vacation to do this. What a waste of time. Everything they asked me they could have asked me over the phone, but instead used preciouce vacation time to "interview" with a recruiter about a job that I'm not even sure was real.

I nver had my resume submitted for any job by these *** Every time one of these num nuts calls they always talk about future opportunities and want me to give them information about myself, which I've concluded, is to help them find new leads. these guys are the biggest waste of time ever.

Why do we have Job Agencies? They don't help you or the company. You ask for $10.00 dollars an hour. Just to feed your family and to fill that position. The job agency wants $14.00 dollars an hour from the company... That's why it's very hard to find a job. All the Job...

I had an interview over the phone and then came in the following day at their office, I met with a interviewer and then he sent in another fellow to interview me. I was not prepared, after 2 years of unemployment I kind of freaked out.

I wish I would have visited this wesite earlier and I might have been prepared in what to say. I think they try to trip you up.

It was aassemby position, I worked for twenty five years at as a maintaince mechanic. The contract job offered paid 11.00 per hour.They never got back with me.
