Job seeker (Former Employee), san ramon – July 23, 2014
I have been assigned several recruiters and most of them don't do the simplest task which is return a phone call I signed up over a year ago and after the initial appointment I got no help I ended up going through office team and received more efficiency. If your signed up with them don't make them your only option.
Cons: base pay for recent grads, commission structure
Aerotek overall is a great company. I enjoyed going to work everyday because there were always new challenges within the division that I was a part of. There isn't much of a work/life balance within the company because there is a "team before self" guiding principle to the company which was initially the reason I left the company. Other than a couple – more... of instances where you become overwhelmed with the work, if you are looking for a company that you can surround yourself by great people and you have a competitive nature, Aerotek is the right FIT for you. They have increased the compensation base for those that are with the company for over a year but it is a grind until you make it to that level of spread (commission based on the number of hours candidates are put to work) that the company wants you to get to for promotional opportunities. With this company, I was able to express ideas and even travel to try out new things. The DBO reminds you of a coach. He is there to mentor you to doing the right things and rewards you with a work hard/play hard attitude. – less
Test/Machine operator (Former Employee), Austin, TX – July 21, 2014
A typical day at work was different everyday due to seeing new faces and meeting new people everyday. Not one person shaerd the sam personality. Management was some what organized and firm about production. My co-worlers were like family we all worked as a team helped one another when needed and enjoyed each others company on the slow long days. I would – more... have to say the hardest part of the job was having to produce a ceratin amount of products when there are onoly two people working at a section. I enjoyed meeteing several new people everyday and hearing about their many war stories or the many places they have traveld to for our country. – less
Benefit Administrator (Former Employee), Savannah, GA – July 21, 2014
I was very impressed with the staff at Aerotek. They were very professional and they answered questions and returned calls within a timely manner. They were never too busy to speak with you even if that meant they had to call you back a little later.

Assembler (Former Employee), Riverview, FL – July 19, 2014
Aerotek was very thorough on their hiring process. Very reputable company. I worked for a company through them, Tampa Armature Works and the to companies worked very well together. Daily, I assembled diesel generators and metal enclosures. The management at TAW was very good and observant of the employees. The hardest part of the job was working outside – more... in the Florida weather, in all weather conditions. – less
Overall Aerotek is a great company. I was hired by Aerotek but I worked for Oskosh Defense.
MRAP/M-ATV FSR (Former Employee), Bagram, Dwyer and Nolay Afghanistan – July 19, 2014
Working for Oshkosh was the best organization I have ever worked for. There is no typical day working in a war zone. One has extremely good days and then there are those not so good days. It all works out well when working with a great organization and great people.
I learned working with the military, especially the Marines, is a challenging and rewarding – more... opportunity. I am a retired Army Warrant Officer. The majority of fellow employees are equally exceptional people to work with
Management in Conus is outstanding. All the management I met in Oshkosh,WI. were true managers. The OCONUS management had a very few new managers that, apparently were new in their field, were still in training. I am sure they have worked out the rough edges. The other managers, OCONUS, did a remarkable job and I hope they are still with Oshkosh Defense.
Again, the majority of co-workers in Afghanistan were truly professional and I hope they are still employed by Oshkosh Defense.
I can honestly say there was no HARDEST PART of the JOB. If there was a hard part of my job, it was me keeping up with changes and me always improving myself to be as good if not better than the other co-workers. The other hard part was when the contract was filtering out and we all had to go our separate ways.
The most enjoyable part of my job was being part if such an elite group of professionals. Working with the soldiers and Marines in such a harsh and troublesome environment and still being able to laugh and joke with each other. Making new friends and learning about all the different walk of lives. Being to keep up with the younger generation and see how their lives were changing in such a harsh environment.
I have Aerotek to thank for placing me in such good company while working in Afghanistan. – less
Contract Employee (Former Employee), Des Moines, IA – July 17, 2014
Cons: lower pay than other agencies
The recruiters are not good with communication. Once you are in a contract they stop keeping tabs on you. My contract was extended twice in my last assignment and I didn't hear from the agency regarding the extension or any other reason for at least four months. I was also promised a free lunch I won in a drawing that I never recieved.
