I registered with Aerotek, two hours later had an interview, thirty minutes later had an offer. I was so stoked!
Worked my butt off at a job I loved for four months, my manager advised me they were going to hire me in, the next day my Aerotek rep called me to advise that my position was terminated because the host company was terminating their contract with Aerotek. Two days later I talked to a friend who worked at the same place through Aerotek, and was still working. I called Aerotek and they said the reason I was terminated was because of attendance issues. I never missed a day and was never late.
When I told them this they said it was disciplinary issues. When I responded that I never once had any problems, they just responded that the host company was unhappy with my performance or conduct. I called the manager who responded that it was an outright lie. Aerotek advised the host company that they had found I had lied on my application and that is why they had terminated me.
It was complete BS!
I applied for unemployment and found that I am one day short of eligible, and was told by the agent at the unemployment office that Aerotek has a reputation for this because they get a percentage of their placed employees wages from the host company, higher waged employees are terminated without cause before they are eligible for unemployment so Aerotek can bring in another employee and keep getting paid, and it is all legal.
Thanks Aerotek, hope that little bit of money you're getting is worth taking the food off my kids' plates!
