I have 7 of Staffing industry experience, starting from a recruiter all the way on up to working at Corporate office for a competitor of Aerotek. I worked for 2 other Agencies in the same capacity.
Recently Aerotek in Omaha NE had an opening for a Recruiter, I applied and I was told that normally they don't hire people with experience because of the bad habits one develops. At the same time I was told that they could not ignore my background at the same time. My previous position required 90% travel all over the country and DID NOT want to do that anymore.
The office director gave me 2 interviews and told me to follow it up with an email to him explaining why I want to work there.
I was then given a 3rd interview with his Sales Managers (who can't sell candy to a 5 yr old)and they turned around and said to send them an email explaining why I want to work there. Then Director said after that email he would like to give me a 4th interview. REALLY? Who the *** does that for a very basic recruiter position for a company that has no open orders?
During the whole time all they asked me was about the clients that I previously had and what the markup was that I was charging. Like I would have given him that info within the first 6 months of employment.
Sorry bud, no free info for you. Very unprofessional, tacky if you ask me.
