    I worked at Aerotek full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    I worked at Aerotek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Occasional free food, nice co-workers

    Cons

    I wouldn't recommend working here to my worst enemy, also the worst recruiting agency. Unreasonable expectations and KPIs for employees, all employees are burnout and tired. Aerotek's logo "Our people are everything", couldn't be further than the truth. They DO not care about you or their employees. Stay FAR FAR away. They trick you into working your butt off for a lousy commission, base salary is very low.
