Got me a job fast
Quality inspector (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MdOctober 21, 2015
They found me a job very quickly, although it was one I had no experience in, that didn't seem to matter. When I told them that the employing company was violating labor laws I was told that it was "not a big deal", "they don't do it often", then was asked if it was worth my job. This from a VP at Augmentation. The company I'd been sent to said they didn't want me back and augmentation stopped returning my calls & emails.
Pros
The office staff was friendly
Cons
Their only client is the company they send you to, you are irrelevant

NOT good
Contract employee at Thorlabs Quantum Electronics (Former Employee) –  Jessup, MDJune 16, 2015
If I had a choice I would not have accepted the osition from Augmentation. I ended up doing the work of at LEAST two people,...and I had no one to reach out to,...once on the job Augmentation disavowed all knowledge of my original posting and hung me out to dry.

Entry level labor.
Meter Installation Technician (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMarch 3, 2015
This is contract labor. Base level employees are cogs in the machine and treated accordingly. Show up, do your work, collect your check. The company does not lead you on in this regard; everything is on the table. The work is steady but for a fixed contract term. The job is the same every day with just enough variability to keep it interesting.
Pros
better than a kick in the pants!
Cons
sketchy neighborhoods are on the menu.

Great entry level opportunity
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Frederick, MDDecember 10, 2013
I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to learn the basics of Human Resources at Augmentation, Inc. The most fulfilling part of the job was actually providing suitable employment for candidates. Most of them were very thankful for the opportunity to return to work. The worst part of the job was having to tell the candidate that they were not chosen for the position. Most of them handled it well, but relaying bad news to someone is never pleasant.

Good Communications Company

I became more at eased at turning in equipment for repair and having ready equipment on hand. All due to my military experience in logistical management.
Pros

terrific.

I thouht that the company was poorly managed unfortunately.
Contractor (Former Employee) –  College Park, MarylandAugust 15, 2013
Though the head supervisors tried to do their best at keeping everyone on board, I think that they should have made early examples of bad behaviors so that individuals would take the job seriously. In not doing so, many individuals felt as if it was a joke and there was no reprecussions for their lack of respect towards the work, job and supervisors so that increased more and more as others saw it.
Pros
pay was good.
Cons
erratic hours
