    I worked at Aerotek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Choosing to begin your career at Aerotek is wise decision for multiple reasons. First, you receive incredible training, development, and mentorship from your colleagues- I am convinced the mentorship you receive there, specifically, is the best you could possibly experience. Especially if you don't have much career direction coming out of college, Aerotek is a great way to learn about different industries and career paths because you support so many different companies (including the obvious two that they offer- recruiting and sales). You will also work with some of the best people you'll ever get to meet when you work at Aerotek. Working at Aerotek can be very challenging and exhausting, so having great people by your side helps you through the hard times. The culture is definitely what Aerotek's foundation is built on, although it has started to slide/change a bit over the years.

    Cons

    There isn't much opportunity for anyone not interested in recruiting, sales, or customer support. You have to be extremely successful (in Aerotek's sales-based terms) in order to really get anywhere unique within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for those who aren't put in the best territory/situation but still embody core values to represent the company well in non sales-based roles (outside of just the CSA role).

    Pros

    The potential to make a lot of money, opportunity to learn a lot about different industries, growth in business acumen, personal growth, networking opportunities, ability to expense lunches, promotions, time off, potential to get car allowance and cell phone allowance. 5K increase in base salary after your first year. It is a great entry level opportunity.

    I worked at Aerotek as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Immediate placement. I was employed by Aerotek almost steadily for 4 years. The first position didn't last long, then I had about 2 months of unemployment. The last placement I had with them lasted about 3 years. I have since moved, but if I needed an employment agency, I would choose Aerotek.

    Cons

    As with all employment agencies, there can be periods of not working.

    Pros

    Recruiters are personable, and thoughtful. The occasional phone call to check on you. The longer you work with Aerotek the better the relationship becomes.

    Cons

    Number of offices could cost you a 1 to 2 hour drive to close your deals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work

    I worked at Aerotek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For the most part there were some good people to work with in the call center. I liked helping GM customers (I was subcontracted to GM) resolve their issues concerning auto repairs. GM indicated they wanted us to do all we could to resolve repair issues within reason and I worked as hard as I could to bring about favorable resolves. In most instances, I was successful.

    Cons

    The six weeks of training was intense and often confusing. Our cur office replaced foreign call centers which was comforting to customers who heard native english speaking customer service reps handle their cases. However, a new model (different from training) required we provide fewer options to customers which angered many of them and decreased employee morale. Mature workers were usually the first to be fired and many of them felt as if they did not get the personal attention many of the younger workers received. Not to complain, but work loads piled up considerable and case load management required that some cases be closed quickly on to have re-opened a short time later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I realize it's a fast paced work environment but employees would provide better service handling smaller case loads or given more time to resolve them. GM Managers worked hard to maintain morale but even they were stressed by the quick policy changes that took place. Aerotek managers were usually seen only when it was time for reprimands to be meted out. I would encourage Aerotek to provide more of a buffer zone between employees and the corporate management.
