Shortly after this original post, I was emailed, called and text messaged (3 texts, to be exact, all in the span of 20 minutes) by said employee Sunday night after telling him that I was no longer waiting around for the interviewer\'s address and was, at that moment, no longer interested. Not only was his behavior excessive, but completely unprofessional.
He apologized and suggested rescheduling the interview. I did respond with an email telling him that I would be interested in a rescheduled interview for Tuesday. It is now Monday night, and nothing. Typical.
Not only is Aerotek unprofessional, unreliable and inconsiderate, but the Alameda branch seems to be receiving harsh criticism from many outside of myself. To sum up, Aerotek wasted my time and they\'ll waste yours, as well.

I was contacted by an Aerotek employee in the Alameda, CA branch earlier this week. He spoke to me about a position he said I was a "perfect fit" for.
I read over the job description and agreed. I had told him that I would be unavailable for interview the following day as I have been working part time during my job hunt. He told me that he would follow up with me regarding the interview time. This was at about noon.
I did not hear back from him until 8a.m. the next morning, telling me that the company wanted to interview later that day. I reminded him that I had told him I was working so he promised to call back with a time for Monday, which is tomorrow. Remarkably, he called back about an hour later and told me that I had been scheduled for an interview and that I would be sent an email with the location and time.
That was Friday morning, it is now Sunday afternoon and I have gotten no email. I took an entire day off of work to go to this supposed interview and it looks as if I might have just lost money at my other job for nothing.
He promises to send me that email today, but so far, nothing. Thanks for all the "help," Sam.
