Mortgage Support Assistant (Current Employee) – Georgia – December 5, 2018
Aerotek is an amazing company. It was almost as though they read my mind with the type of job I wanted because I ended up with the exact company I was trying to work for, for years. The communication is great and the only complaint I have, which some might not mind, are the days off. If the company you temp for is off and Aerotek does not recognize that as a holiday, you have no choice but to be off and not get paid. Also if you are sick, there is also nothing you can do but not get paid, however, to balance this out, if your manager where you are temping says you can make up these hours, you can. Also, I get paid very well!!
Absolutely soul crushing place to work. You will end up just being a cog in the machine that they don't care about. The team I was on has had 4 people leave within 6 months and they still don't see a problem. They don't care about your personal growth, only how much you can make the company. The work life balance is HORRIBLE until you are making over 6 figures. Until then, you can expect to work 60+ hours a week. The benefits package was good, I'll give them that. But for 12.50 an hour, NOT worth it.
Tons of free food and outings.
Horrible work life balance, a company that doesn't actually care about you.

Contract technicians at GM is not right. People are getting paid far less than the direct salary employees with no benefits while holding the exact same job and then some to “prove yourself.” I received absolutely no paid vacation time or sick leave. It’s a joke to work hard while the direct people enjoy making a project out of you because it looks good to their management for them having “trained” you. Too many fat guys sitting around in chairs to complain and supervise while other people do the real work. Too much wasteful money gets thrown around there. Also, come layoff time or budget cuts (which happens often) the contract people are the first to get kicked out the door. Then a few months later after a new budget arrives (after the first of the year) you get a call, hey we could use you here again. No thanks man! Not right!

I was a temp to hire. Hire on date came and went, kept working with no benefits. Asked if they knew if I was getting hired, they said probably then all of a sudden they let me go. Has happened to others I know. Seems like a scam between aerotek and companies to not pay benefits. They never said a word after I was let go...terrible.
Account Representative (Former Employee) – Winter Park, FL – November 30, 2018
Hardest part of the job: No paid time off for temp work or holiday day pay is offered. Best part of the job: recruiters will place you in a position that matches needs of employer and employee. Workplace culture: felt like a temp more than a team member. Recruiters are genuine and will help in interview preparation and skill set development.

Aerotek sells you the dream that you will be starting off at $60,000 but in all actuality you start at $16/hr and based off of your ability to put people to work it could take 3-6 months before you even see salary. There is ZERO work life balance here and the management is very disorganized. You are essentially a working slave here and they want you to work around the clock. Even when you want a day off, they question you as to why; as if it is not acceptable to take a "personal day". They get close to you and then use the information you told them against you. If you enjoy working in a cut throat environment then this is definitely the place for you.

I had many different contracted positions with Aerotek (now TEK Systems). My favorite was working at the Ontario Airport for General Electric. My least favorite was working for the Post Office. All in all I enjoyed my time their.
