A former employee from Portland, OR claims in a review posted by INDEED that working for Aerotek is Kind of a nightmare: "I've connected with two separate branches in the Portland area. The first one was in Vancouver and the agent didn't really listen to me on what I was looking for, but needing a job I went on a couple of interviews anyway but the locations were completely out of my zone. Again, he didn't pay attention to where I could work. I tried to connect with the branch in Beaverton over a year later and took assessments with no follow up. They're just neglectful and don't listen."
Current Employee - Customer Service Representative (CSR) says"End assignment without any notice"
Former Employee - Recruiter says"Very bad environment to work in"
Former Employee - Recruiter says"Aerotek is a cult mixed with a pyramid scheme. Unless you want to be pressured 24/7, have zero work-life balance, feel unappreciated and don't want to think freely and be able to express your thoughts... then I'd recommend not joining."
Former Employee - Recruiter says"Insane hours, undervaluing of contributions, and pay is not what it should be for the high stress of the role."

Wireman (Former Employee) says"dont care about the people just them getting paid. they will tell you anything to get you to sign, then about ever talking about it. I never had a pleasant conversation with them after i was hired."
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says"reallypoor company to work for low pay for a great skill set . management sucks claims to be there for ya but kicks you to the curb as soon as you disagree"
Production Associate (Current Employee) says"They won't work in the rain. I have only worked two days the whole time that I worked here. That's a bad thing. I am not making any money because of this."
Contractor (Former Employee) says"I was sent for a company in Arvada to interview with a supervisor, but my shift supervisor was not there and they did not give me a walkthrough. When I actually started the job I was horrified to see the lack of safety and the carelessness towards the employees that they employed! The second job, that they sent me was a horrible dangerous chemical processing job! The people there did not care about their employees only cared about the chemical that they were processing and how much they were dumping down Boulders drinking Supply water into the pipeline.Endless supplies of horrible jobs!You must break the cycle."
Spreader (Former Employee) says"They only care about the number they can recruit. Not their people and how the company mistreat the staff. They never check on you to see how things are going until your assignment ends"
Warehouseman (Former Employee) says"Numerous times I had to resend my Banking info to get Direct Deposit set up. Went from one Assignment recieving Direct Deposit to another assignment without my Direct Deposit (still employed by Aerotek). Still haven't been paid for an assignment weekly bonus."
Health Screener (Former Employee) says"I got injured on the job and was put on unpaid sick leave for almost two weeks. After I got my clearance note from my doctor I come back to an email sent to me saying “thanks for your service but our program is done” even though they stated that it was gonna be a one year program. They honestly don’t really care about you. My injury wouldn’t have happened if they actually cared about your well being. It’s a shady company. They said the job was at 4 am but it was actually at 3 am. They didn’t have any health screening precautions. If you complained once, you get the boot. The job was like high school too. Everything you say or want private ends up getting spread through the entire workplace. Sometimes they even mess up your hours and your pay. I wouldn’t recommend this company. It will hurt you. 1$ lunches/ breaksHealth, Time management, work balance, employee protection"
Eligibility Representative (Former Employee) says"- Work there if you enjoy pain and anxiety and bullying. They care nothing about you as a person and this is a company that says you should be empathetic and caring at all times. Be prepared for micromanagement and job insecurity. Poor conditions, poor communication and poor management. I had difficulty contacting my hiring supervisor throughout the contracted work and was micro managed by the active manager from assigned company. Disorganized Management and a toxic work environmentDoes offers some health benefits.Work life balance, non existent! High turnover for a reason!"
Labor Worker (Former Employee) says"Bad place to work for they did nothing about the situation at the concrete job and instead of asking what happened I got a blah blah when I told him what was going on there at kerkof"
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"They do not pay workers on time. Workers been waiting 2months for a check. They need to be investigated!! They have people working from home so you can even go to the office to get it fixed. This company is straight trash!!NoneEverything"
Forklift Operator temp (Former Employee) says"Will tell you everything is going be fine just to get a call on early Sunday morning that your fries for no good reason at all. Just ridicules, after fighting with them you will get ok pay if you don’t fight they pay you bull"
customer data removal specialist (Former Employee) says"Typical staffing agency...Poor pay, poor hours, poor "benefits" package, and no chance of full time placement or job advancement. The only benefit is that you are paid weekly.Weekly payPretty much everthing"
Looking for work (Former Employee) says"Will say things like "We don't want to waste your time" when they really mean "We don't want you wasting our time here, get lost". Won't be upfront and say the truth in your face, look somewhere else for a job.There are no pros.The people, the services, the lack of management, the lack of honesty, Etc..."
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) says"Might work 2 days at one place and 2 days at another and have to wait 2 weeks per paycheck. Waste of time. Got layed off from one facility then brought back."
applicant (Former Employee) says"they will call and offer you more money than the actual job pays, then make you come for a half dozen interviews with different people who have not spoken to each other. none of them seems to know how to read a resume or e-mails. then when they actually tell you what the job is, it is nothing to do with anything on your resume or anything that you have spoken about before. then they say they will keep you in mind for anything else that they get in the future but the same person never calls. then if you see an ad for something that you are qualified for and is close to your home, they refuse to even acknowledge that you have even applied to it.zerowasting vast amounts of time talking to lying morons."
Customer Service Representative at CCH (Former Employee) says"At Aerotek they dont take the time to as far as job matches. Overall, ot was a waste of time. I would not recommend them to anyone. The recruiters dont take to place you and match you properly. I was very disappointed.NoneNone"
Sheet Metal Mechanic (Current Employee) says"They don't care about people like they should care about. They have people there that only care about their paycheck and pockets then people. Is difficult to get hold of somebody when you need them."
Job seeker (Former Employee) says"Absolute trash. in this 4 years that I worked with them they never found me a job. They're rude and unprofessional. I suggest you work with another agency."
Demolition Laborer (Former Employee) says"Not worth getting laid off after you done drove across the world to get there. I tried to get to the top, but my experience was to much for them! They will hold your pay"
Laborer (Former Employee) says"If your a fan of being sold lie or a fan of only getting half the truth aerotek is the place for you, they'll send you out to work tell you you'll be hired on after a few months and 6-9 months later you're still there as a temp not collecting any benefits. So if you love being used and abused aerotek is the company for you!!Lies, lies & more lies"
Paddy O'Brien says"Was contacted by this recruiter yesterday through LinkedIn and informed of a good job matching my specification in Switzerland. I am a specialist so I was open to the opportunity. The company were impressive.
However the tone of the email was rushed – Could I immediately get back to her and she needed to have my details in by end of business the next day. That sent up a red flag.
That evening I checked out a review of Aerotek by google search. The first review I saw warned of fraudulent practices and lying to the job seeker. However the company was very large, based mostly in USA and had many good reviews also.
The next day, the RC rang me on time and we went over the role. She didn’t have a full job spec and she wanted me to complete a series of questions, including supplying references and updating my CV. She wanted this all ASAP.
This didn’t suit as my day was already busy, but I did spend over and hour typing up this information and sent it on. Then I heard nothing back from her. It’s now after 5:30pm in Switzerland, and I don’t know whether she forwarded my details to the company or not. She also revealed that the job was a 1 year contract and that I was employed by Aerotek, not the company. None of this had previously been communicated.
This really threw my day out and cost me 2 hours altogether. I had another important call scheduled for that day. It remains to be seen whether she lets me know if I was put forward or not. But in general, I would have to say that it was a bad experience and very unprofessional.
Update: The RC replied to my message saying my CV had been sent – I’m not sure what to believe – the call from another company came 10 minutes after the call with her. Co-incidence?
Also – It’s been 8 days – no update despite written assurance last week, and no-one answering office phone.
I would warn people against trusting this company, and I also feel it reflects badly on Nov*tis, who have previously interviewed me in a process that lasted 6 months for another vacancy. They have also recently downsized an entire facility in Cork, so I would say to that company – stop treating people like merde.
Beware *artis and Aerotek!
PS. I also suspect this call was a hoax, coming from another company, to see what I would say if offered another position. How dubious.
Gotta love big pharma. Such integrity."
