Professional Game Players and Smoke Blowers

Where to begin, how about don't waste your time or resources with Aerotek or Allegis parent Co. My experience with Aerotek over the last 9 years has been zero interviews scheduled, even after being told client wanted to interview. Yanking chains with great comeons that turn out after jumping through hoops to be nothing as initially explained as being (Bait & Switch- Good opportunity, Direct Hire, with benefits in my desired pay range, is suddenly 6 mo. Contract hire, zero benefits, zero pd. holidays or vacation with lame at best excuses-lies). I can see why folks avoid this so-called recruiter as well as higher end business. I've even been told first hand VP's that "all they've even gooten from Aerotek is garbage and they don't use them anymore because of they get smoked as well". As an employer and a candidate I would just warn you. They lie to both their clients and candidates and waste everyone's time & resources with poor to no results. There seems to be a serious problem being professional among most of their staff. If you have experienced professional needs or are an well experienced professional, avoid wasting your time and efforts here. They just don't deliver on either end in any professional level or endeavor on either side of the fence. The are a low-end, low skills, low compensation specialist always trying to get leads from folks and not supplying quality opportunities Shocked or personal to professionals in need.

Very Unprofessional

Got a call from a recruiter saying that my 'qualifications would be perfect for a position' they had with another company. They described it and I told them I wasn't interested. Called me the next day and the same thing happens, except I say I would be interested in learning about the position. By chance I end up getting a job offer for a position I had applied to previously that same day, so I call the recruiter at Aerotek and tell her that I am no longer interested. She proceeds to call me 10 times over the next week, but I stop answering her calls. She finally gets ahold of me, tries to get contact information of 'others looking for jobs in the area', and tells me that the position she had for me would have paid me significantly more than the one I'm in now (even though I looked for this position on the said company's website and it literally doesn't exist). Super annoying company and in my opinion a drain on society. Avoid at all costs.

I just want to warn people about my experience with Aerotek. Make the right decision for yourself. I was not in a rush to find a new position, this company wants to place you in the first position they can find. Let's start with my first encounter with Aerotek. They...

Bad service

I was scheduled a drug screening and given 48 hours, passed the test. And then was told I was too late for the test even though I got it finished on time and even got the results. Bad timing on feedback to when I could’ve been looking for another job, Lindsey constantly ignored my calls. She is a worker for this agency and I’m very unpleased

Left hanging

I have actually had a face-to-face with an Aerotek employee and a job was recommended to me. I left a phone message and an e-mail the following day with two simple questions to help me make a decision on the job. I was never contacted. I applied for another job and heard back only to find out that the position had already been filled (they think). Since then, I have left no less than 5 phone messages and 3 e-mails to two different employees I have spoken with - no return call. No return e-mail. Seems like they are just trying to hit their quota, but don't give a crap about finding you a job.

I was mislead.

They post job listings but the jobs didn't exist when I talked with the recruiter. They said they will contact hiring managers to see if there are any positions available. What makes me unhappy is that this appears to be a type of a "money grab", but instead its a "resume grab". I do not like being mislead like this, it makes me wonder what else they do that may be misleading. They may be useful for someone, but I don't like how they conduct business. I'm also not happy with their request for a word version of my resume so they can edit my resume. My resume is already made to portray my past experiences, they have no business changing it. Other than that they were polite on the phone.

I should be thankful. Really, I should, but this company has absolutely no compulsion about throwing a needy person away like a bag of rotten tangerines. Let me tell you what happened. I was supposed to start work on July 23, 2018 for a client in Chino. My mother...

You aren't the client company's employee. They don't know you or care.

Aerotek has to do what client requests, i.e. get this opening filled NOW.

NEVER GO HERE TO FIND A JOB

DO NOT use this job service. I was referred here by a friend because they had a great job opportunity at the company he works for electrical mechanical tech position. They told me they didn't really work with that company. Then a week and a half after they pissed around calling references they tell me they had the account but the manager was on vacation. So after they did nothing for two weeks, the job was gone. I will never go here again and I would say to you they will waist your time here. If you have bills to pay don't do it. Unorganized and unprofessional is an understatement.

I bet if you check with your references, you will find Aerotek made sales calls to them. That's what they do: try to solicit business from peoples' references.

Don't Work With Them

So I was in a contract job with a client and then, July 16, my supervisor calls in me and 2 other co-workers who were employed with Aerotek were called in the meeting room. We were told that that day was our LAST DAY! And they just found out EARLIER THAT MORNING! My recruiter then called me back during my break and told me that "they just found out earlier and I couldn't let you know ahead of time, I do apologized." And tried to convince me that he'll get in touch with his supervisor in getting another job for me. Mind you, I was given TWO END DATES, then, *snip* goes my JOB AND BENEFITS! AEROTEK! NO MORE!

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER

I feel bad for people whose negative reviews I'm reading. I used Aerotek in Charlotte, NC. My recruiter's name is Eason. He bent over backwards for me, gave me everything I could possibly need to prepare for the interviews, made my resume look fabulous & literally called my cell phone before and after my interview to check in on me. He even gave me his cell # in case I had any questions after hours. He treated me as if I was paying HIS salary. I landed a job right away. He still checks in on me. If you're in the Charlotte, NC area & deal with Aerotek, demand Eason as your recruiter.

Didn't get paid time in half for holiday

So work at airport for Areotek. Working with Hunt construction. Areotek and Hunt construction got the clearance for us to work on Memorial Day. Although you don't tell your workers that this will be regular pay. Very upset..
