I just read a statement in The Huff Post Business Internet page by Aerotek stating: "Our policy is that at no time do we offer a position until the screening and/or testing process is complete..." This is DEFINITELY NOT TRUE. I had been out of work for a little over a year when Aerotek called me for a job as a Loan Processor for Bank of America in NC.
I did the interview and was offered the job the following day. I was given a START DATE, who to report to, timeclock information, etc. The start date was set for 3 weeks AFTER the interview! The FRIDAY BEFORE I was to begin the new job, which would've been that Monday morning, I received a call from the recruiter stating that my background had not cleared because of a 20 year old dismissed charge!
Talk about furious!
Even though the background check was an FDIC issue, Aerotek did not do their due diligence in completing my background check until a couple days before I was to start back the new job! UNACCEPTABLE!
