I was very grateful for initially being placed in a job very quickly, however I was not chosen to be hired full time after working at that position for 4 months. Through no fault of Aerotek only Aerotek has not communicated much with me since then. They apparently don't have enough of my type jobs.
The company is well managed, but it's clear why there is so much attrition. The recruiters are less strategic because you need to find candidates willing to travel long-distances for little compensation. It appears cigarettes and Red Bull were for breakfast.

I have had a great match with Aerotek. This has done wonders for my confidence and getting back into the work force after becoming a mom and being out of work for a while and reminding me how tough I am.
Its a suprer positive atmosphere and there are loads of people who offer to listen and guide you.
Hardest part of this is realizing that it isn't the right fit. There are always pros and cons to a work place and some times it might just not be the exact fit you are looking for.

I have only worked at Aerotek for a short time, but in that time the staff cares about me as an individual. They are a temp to hire agency that communicates well and is very helpful in finding the right job for there clients.
Fast Paced, cut throat, 55-60 hour weeks- GREAT if you have no life
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – May 23, 2017
Aerotek has some wonderful people working there and I made some wonderful friends but it is young company with young management/lack there of. If you decide to work at Aerotek please understand the following: it is EXPECTATION to work 10+ hour days, be in the office EVERY DAY by 7:30 AM and not leave before 6 PM, and work mandatory blitzs'. So, I would suggest people really consider if 50,000 is worth 50-60 hour weeks; and the hours do not change as you climb in management. Aerotek is more suited for single individuals who do not have obligations (wives, husbands, children, lives outside of work). Oh, and you are required to take contractors out to lunch 3-4 times a week so you are working during your lunch break as well. Also, DO NOT choose Aerotek if you do not like confrontation or can not multitask- you are required to do about 100 things a day and your job is NOT simply picking up the phone and recruiting- you are responsible for a HUGE range of additional activities and yet your production numbers do not change even when your tasks increase (one of the reasons for the very long hours). In regards to commission, the tier structure makes it so you will realistically not see an additional 200 a week on a paycheck until you are a 1/2 years' in averaging around 12-13k in spread. So go into the job knowing you will be at 50,000 working 50-60 hour weeks for the first 1-2 years at minimum.

Aerotek is good if you really need a job. All employment and benefits info is online and complicated. Aerotek never returns my calls. They only call me if they want information about the contracting company.

A typical day at work consisted of receiving inbound call for the State of Illinois for their healthcare system. I learned a lot about the healthcare and retirement systems that I did not know. The company has a great management and work culture. It is a challenging yet rewarding experience.
