      Pros

      Full time. Aerotek reached out to me to offer me an interview and then the job. They give you an agent you can talk ask about days off and things.

      Cons

      Sometimes there is not enough work so you have to go home early and do not get paid for a whole shift.

      Pros

      Good hours, high pay, lots of opportunities around the world, work trips, fun people, feeling of helping pilots and making a difference

      Cons

      Overwhelming workplace, sometimes people are not kind to each other in the work place. A lot can be improved in terms of management being nicer to employees.

      Pros

      Occasional free food and that about it really. Very long hours and unhealthy nonexistent work/life balance.

      Cons

      I strongly do not recommend working here or being recruited by this agency, they're horrible and treat people like they're disposable. I worked for their Mississauga location for about 2 years, the KPIs and expectations put on their recruiters is ridiculous. Even if you're meeting targets and goals , they encourage you to stay overtime, often working past 6 or 7. Very toxic cult like environment, and a ton of micro managing. All their recruiters are genuinely miserable. Stay far far away!!!

      Good school, conflicting values, unhealthy micro-management

      Pros

      Great training program for recruiters, you learn a lot quickly.

      Cons

      Unhealthy micro-management, your every move is scrutinised. They say that they value quality over quantity, but they ask you quantity. If you don't fill your assigned openings, you will have to stay at work late every single night. If you dare say that the candidates you've spoken to were not interested in the role or you judged that it wasn't a right fit, your manager will sit down with you and go through your every note. Their mission is not to put the right candidates in the right opportunities, but rather to put bodies on chairs and increase their profit. AM's are also expected to make an insane amount of calls and they will sign every possible contract, even if they know that the assignment is almost impossible, which will ultimately make the recruiters' lives hell.

      Pros

      Pay is good compared to other entry level positions. Job duties are clear. Nice office and friendly co-workers

      Cons

      Work schedule is a weekly cycle, very repetitive. Management shows little interest in your personal development. Blame is shifted often onto you when things go wrong, management never take responsibility. You are expected to be at your desk and are discouraged from talking and mingling almost always. It feels alienating even with co-workers around.
