I spoke with Meghan from the tigard oregon aerotek office. First of all I wasted a week of jumping through hoops and being told by Netflix that I was hired.
I was told that the background check only went back 7 years. I asked them 3 times even though it was over 7 years ago and told them I had things that were over 7 years old. I get a call today about 1 minute AFTER I was supposed to leave to meet them that I was unfortunatly not going to get the job because of my background check. I KNOW FROM CHECKING MY OWN BACKGROUND EARLIER THIS WEEK THAT THERE WAS NOTHING TO BE FOUND IF THEY WERE ONLY GOING BACK 7 YEARS.
Obviously that was a lie and they went back as far as they wanted and used that information in their consideration. When I asked her how far back they did the check SHE WOULDN'T TELL ME. She just said there would be a report in the mail to me. So then I called their corporate headquarters and asked them how far back their background checks go and she refused to tell me either!
In fact, she just asked me where I was applying and told me to call meghan and ask her, wich of course i've already talked to and she refused to help me. What a *** way to do business! People need jobs right now and Aerotek are playing with people like it's a game. would it really have been so hard to tell me why?
JUST SKIP EMPLOYMENT WITH AEROTEK!
nothing but a *** hassle and waste of my time. You can't trust what they say, and I would prefer not to work for a company that treats people this way.;
