More than 30 years ago, Steve Bisciotti and Jim Davis created Aerotek, a go-to resource for applicants seeking a job in the defense and aerospace industry.
After just one year in operation, Aerotek brought in over one million dollars. Encouraged by this success, they started to build on that first industry and started providing staffing services for companies with other needs, including: automotive, IT, engineering, and science jobs. Since that first year, they have continued to grow and become a resource for people in all types of fields, now tapping into industries like finance, call centers, and aviation.
Aerotek expanded in terms of location too. While their headquarters are in Hanover, Michigan, they now have more than 200 offices all over the United States and even in parts of Canada and Europe. They help people find jobs near the big city as well as rural areas and strive to connect applicants with the type of work they're looking for-whether it's temporary or full-time.
With more than 10,000 clients and 75,000 contract workers, Aerotek is a booming resource in the business world. To their credit, they are a subcompany of the well-known Allegis Group, recognized as the largest staffing company in the US. They function mainly through thingamajob.com (owned by Allegis Group), a website that allows you to post your résumé, search for a job, and connect with businesses who need your skills.
Possibly Aerotek's most obvious advantage is its wealth of experience. Having been in the staffing business for more than three decades, this company has had many years to perfect their practices, work out the kinks, and network with a wide variety of companies.
Aerotek also caters to a wide selection of industries, which is good news for you as an applicant. Whether you're looking for a specific trade like welding or a career in accounting, Aerotek can help. They've established connections with thousands of companies who need employees of all kinds. What's more, Aerotek continually researches these fields to stay alert of the most needed skills and the most profitable jobs. That research benefits you in that it makes you more appealing to the companies you contact.
Actually working with Aerotek seems pretty easy too. First of all, they function through thingamajob.com, a site that is easy to navigate and that contains a steep amount of job postings. And once you land a job through Aerotek and work at least 20 hours per week, you'll enjoy great benefits like:
There are also flexible payment methods including:
Aerotek also offers their Perfect Fit Program, through which they work directly with the companies in need of employees. Through this program, they assess a company's needs, screen applicants for training and qualifications, and help identify specific employees that match these needs. But then they take it a step further and keep in touch with both parties to make sure the contract is a good fit. In this vein, Aerotek works hard to make sure both employers and employees are happy with each other.
It sounds like many of Aerotek's customers have had positive experiences with the company. There are many reports that the representatives are professional and assertive and provide valuable results. According to these consumers, the people at Aerotek work in detail with the job seekers to understand their skills and then find the job that meets their needs.
Many job seekers who have used Aerotek have reported that their representatives were unresponsive and even dishonest. Some said their contacts never got back to them about job leads. It may depend on which Aerotek office you're working with, since there are so many locations all over the country. But at the same time, consistency speaks volumes about a company. Therefore, inconsistent customer service can mean unreliable results for applicants.
Common complaints regarding the Aerotek process include:

My experience with aerotek is with the virginia beach VA office. They lie and are very unprofessional. They just throw you into a job without explaining benifits, if you want to know how long the contract is they won't give you a straight answer. They are a temp agency that tries to make it seem like you won't ever get laid off. Sent me to tcom in Elizabeth city and I was nothing but confused the entire time, everyone else who was a temp for them was also confused and was unaware about the high possibility of getting laid off after all the work was done, that is until people who have been there for a while tell you how it really is. Do your research before you take a job with them and make sure you ask questions because anything they don't want you to know they won't tell you. Very unorganized, unprofessional, and dishonest company. covering up the high volume of layoffs is not a professional company in my opinion.
This company is THE WORST temp agency I have ever used. After sending a sub par temp - they argued with me over our final bill. I kept saying I’d have a credit and 5 different customer service people kept saying we owed. So I paid. Now I have a credit. 5 customer service reps have asked me how I want the credit returned. I always reply to each email only to receive the same email from another rep. They are terrible at customers service and communication. I will never use them again.
Thumbs down Aerotek in Fairfield... had the worst experience. I went in on Friday 2/28/2020 and was set up with Raquel. We discussed the options and what I was looking for and she told me that being it was late on a Friday to check back up with her Monday. When Monday came I called and left her a voicemail. Next day Tuesday still no word from her so I called back again. Spoke with the receptionist who stated she would be out of the office for the day, also left a message. Wednesday and Thursday pass and still no word. I called Friday again left a voicemail with no return call. The following week Monday called again left a message no return call. At this point I was frustrated and went to another staffing agency. Had an interview with Select Staffing and within the 1 hour Mrs. Z. with their company signed me up .... had me fill out all my paperwork, watched a video and processed my payroll credit card and asked me when I was ready to start! Amazed that they were so helpful and got this taken care of in 1 day. Still to this day no word back from Aerotek and it’s been going on 3 weeks! Aerotek Fairfield was Very unprofessional!
Mr Phillip S in Phoenix AZ is the best recruiter I've ever worked with...! He was diligent about getting the job for me at the money I expected. I required a direct hire and he delivered. THANKS AGAIN PHILLIP!!!
I've been with Aerotek since 2003 my jobs came through Aerotek. I had to write a review normally I just spread the word. I've been in constant contact with Craig S is awesome person to work with. He was knowledgeable, he followed up like he said he would with me on each job he had available. He found me a great job in the field I love. If you need a great recruiter please contact Craig Stanley in the Chesterbrook PA office you will not be disappointed..
I have a good experience with mike he help me a lot I give him a 10 all the way if I have problems with something he help me just one phone call he call me back right away my name is Francis Solis
My personally information was misused by this company. When I contacted their corporate headquarters to request my information be removed from their system, my impression is this was not the first time they had received such a call. I've listed my experience with this company below: ~ 1st email attempts were ignored ~ When I called and requested to speak to a corporate manager: - - 1st attempt: My return call was sent to non-existent voicemail box - - 2nd attempt: I was placed on hold for over 30 minutes and my call was disconnected - - 3rd attempt: my return call was disconnected There are 100's of other employment companies who comprehend the critical importance of their clients' personal information and what is and is NOT appropriate use of same. I highly suggest using extreme caution when submitting personal information to this company. *Please Note: Allegis Group, Inc., Hanover, Maryland, is the parent company.
I found that this was an awesome place to go for help in finding employment. I sat down for an interview with Taylor S and within a couple of days I had got a full time job in a very good company thanks to all of her help. She is very good at what she does and very helpful with all the steps along the way.
I was a former client and I was very unhappy with there services. The recruiters are inresponsible they don’t return your calls or emails. They don’t care about finding you any jobs.
If I could write Aerotech a zero I would give them zero stars but since I have to at least give them one star I think I have to. To start off they are unprofessional the recruiters are very unprofessional especially the one that I had to deal with I am working on my bachelors degree in health information I went to Aerotek as a possible entry level into a healthcare insurance billing entry-level type job the recruiter sent me up for the interview I went on the interview and then after I went for the interview it took them over a week to get back to me while calling and emailing repeatedly to my recruiter I still not get no response so I finally gave up and contacted one of their other recruiters and then right after I contacted them the recruiter calls me back and says that they had offered me the job and I needed to come in for orientation so I went in for the orientation spent hours on the orientation doing the paperwork I even had to spend out an additional $40 to get a copy of my high school transcripts out of my pocket because my college unofficial transcripts were not good enough for them then a day before I’m supposed to start the job I get a call stating that my background had not came back yet and that they cannot place me on the job no I have left my employer that I previously had because I thought I was starting this So then the recruiter then try to place me and another job had me take the assessment that was required and said he would get back to me on the scores the recruiter disappeared and I never heard from him again a week is gone by the job was supposed to start on the 16th and I still not have heard from him so when I tried to call another recruiter the other day for another possible job opportunity that recruiter lied to me and said that the recruiter was going to contact me about the job that day and that they couldn’t help me with another job because I was currently working with this recruiter Aerotech is very unprofessional now I’m without a job trying to frantically search for another job for the situation thatFor the situation that they had put me into and I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and I am going to try to find out what corporate or who I need to go over their head to file complaint this is unacceptable and very unprofessional especially to a single mother with two children is that rely on the income and trying to better the life of her and her family
Had a rep confirm an interiew time and date with a seemingly good company for me, so I set up time off with my current job to go to it. The rep then tells me to get the interview i need to take an earlier time slot. So i rescheduled with my employer to make it happen. The day of the interview, after i left work to go, she tells me the inrerview was cancelled and she would let me know when. After 4 days ofctrying to get info, she tells me she basically cant get me in now. Absoluteky most unprofessional company I ever dealt with.
Terrible recruiters. Had a 30 minute meeting that seemed to go well. Was asked to redo resume so I did and emailed back. Days passed...when I checked in I was told the agent I met with left company and I was being passed on to another. After 5 unanswered emails and 6 ignored phone msg I gave up. If you need a job - look elsewhere!
I have been contacted by Aerotek consultants from the past 1 year and my experience with them is been very upsetting. every time a new recruiter contacts me and takes all my information, the phone call goes on for 30+ minutes. They don't even email or ask if its a good time to talk before the call. Their only motto is to convey what they have to say and never listen to us. They come to own conclusions about my previous jobs and experience without giving me a chance to explain, and they make sure to insult that I have much less experience than the job descriptions and try to convey that I should agree for lower pay. After all the phone calls and says they'll set up an interview with the company, they just elope and never get back to any of my emails. Very unprofessional Aerotek consultants.
Unless you have pervious work, for many year with one company,professionall reference they won't help you find a good job. They will tell you to come into the office waste your with broken promises. Very dishonest company.
Spoke with a recruiter who stopped responding to me for two weeks then told me the company needed me to work full time by a LinkedIn message. Not even a phone call. I sent a message back explaining I could arrange that but the recruiter stopped responding and did not call back! Worst service ever!! He even asked for my boss' contact information so he can sell his services to them! Unprofessional!
I had a horrible experience with aerotek. I spoke to elizabeth at Aerotek about a month ago. At first we had a small conversation over the phone after she wanted to schedule to meet in person. Since then i have tried to call her several times and email her couple times she never answered. I thought our meeting was great since she said i will speak to my manager and see if we can find a position that works for you and i'll be in touch. I completely understand if she can not find any jobs that i was interested in but i was at least hoping for a response back letting me know that they recently have no offers.
I met Christoph at a Job Fair and exchanged details to make an appointment for an interview. He rang a few days (Monday) later to arrange an appointment (Friday). I arrived at the appointment and waited 30 minutes. Finally I rang and emailed him. He replied to my email to say that he had been out sick for 2 days. So he knew well in advance that he would be unable to make our appointment and made no effort to contact me. This is completely unprofessional behaviour. We arranged to meet the following week and he actually turned up. Had a pleasant discussion about what I was looking for work wise and said he would get back to me. I haven't heard from him since. A total waste of my time.
I wish I could give it zero starts. This company promised SO many things it didn't deliver on. On top of constantly calling and texting me. I'm a grown woman and I felt like I was being treated like I was 4 years old with this company.

It has been a great experience. I am so glad that Cirilo, Ricardo called me on 010319. We talked for a little and I felt confident. So at that point we meet the next day. I also ask hem about getting a job opportunity for my wife. She is a IT graduate and worked as an IT for 9 years in the Santo Domingo. Thanks to Ricardo he was able to get her in the next week or two and now she is very happy with the job. She love the way Aerotek and Ricardo was able to help. That is wonderful and I thank God and bless him for helping me find a job opportunity. Thanks again for a great opportunity God bless you all
I have never once had a good experience with areotech the recruiters that have contacted me have shown no intrest in helping place me with a job as a matter of fact one unprofessional employee Orlando had a scheduled interview for me however he scheduled it during a state of emergency when we had a hurricane my front yard was a swimming pool a tree cane down on my house and it was raining cats and dogs who schedules a interview in the middle of this kind of weather? Seriously they talk a good game but suck at what they do very disappointed never will I recommend your company this is for the Huntersville Nc location
Had previously used Aerotek for staffing both light assembly positions and customer service roles. It had been almost 2 years since the last customer service role but had used them off and on for the production side. Had an opening for a CSR and reached out and was given a new contact for the office side named David B. He came out and met with me about the role and did not say anything about contract terms changing, sent over a candidate, we interviewed her and really liked her and then he said the terms we had previously were not going to be honored. He is as dishonest as they come. At the end of this we will end up over $9k for this one. Their markup is not worth it. They will lie and cheat every chance. Don't use Aerotek you can find good candidates with better agencies that won't deceive you.
George and Mike worked very hard for me. They are able to match candidates with companies and achieve a personality fit. Thanks guys!
I just want to warn people about my experience with Aerotek. Make the right decision for yourself. I was not in a rush to find a new position, this company wants to place you in the first position they can find. Let's start with my first encounter with Aerotek. They were quick to contact me after I applied. It sounded very promising, so I continued on with a face-to-face interview. I was interviewed and talked down to about my qualifications for the entry position I had applied to. This interviewee had then quit working for Aerotek. There was radio silence for weeks. Finally, another recruiter had contacted me. They seemed nice and eager to help place me. I reinterviewed and I was sent a job description with no company name. It was okay after I said yes to doing an interview, I had found out it was a decent company and I was excited. Everything was alright with Aerotek, other than a few spelling and grammar mistakes in the e-mails and constantly playing phone tag over my short experience with them. Then came the onsite interview with this new company (which was the day after I had applied for the position). I felt very confident about my performance in the interview. I was not so intrigued about the information that was shared about the position, but I knew I had a good chance of an offer. It was now Thursday, I was told by the new company they would have an answer by Monday. I still needed time to go over the details and weighing pros and cons, so this was perfect. I was leaving the country and I was extremely busy the next few days, I had made this clear to everyone involved. Friday, the day I was leaving, I get a call from Aerotek saying that I have been given an offer and Aerotek was pushing a decision on the spot. Even though the new company had stated to me, they wouldn't even have a decision made until Monday. This is also before an offer letter or any details have been explained. I asked for at least an hour to decide. They reiterated their desperate need for an answer and said to give them a call back by the end of the hour. I was surprised at how much Aerotek was rushing me into a decision. I called before the hour was over and no answer. I then e-mailed an informal agreement to the position. After the weekend had finished, I had decided since I had not made a formal agreement, the position was not for me and that Aerotek was no longer someone I wanted to work with. I am not a number. I had received a response stating how "This was a time consuming and drawn out process" and they would not be the right fit for me. This whole process from my re-interview with Aerotek until the final e-mail she sent was 10 days including 4 inactive weekend days. The interview was even less. Day one: applied Day two: interview Day three: need an immediate decision Over the weekend no response. But, I had rejected the offer and said I was moving on. Day four: Response that it was too long of a process, we aren't a good fit... The most unprofessional event during our short time together was that they sent an e-mail to me which was meant for another client about where she would be working and how long...

Aerotek found me a job and found me a job as a direct hire the person I was working was smart kind friendly. She went above and beyond to find me a posisition at a great company with my skills set. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much aerotek
Troy, MI office - Stood up by recruiter for interview. I was contacted by an Aerotek recruiter after posting my resume to Monster. We had a great phone conversation and he seemed really confident he could find me something. We scheduled an interview for Tuesday at 5pm. He said he understood I'm currently employed and is flexible with timing to meet. Monday morning I checked the projected traffic and realized my commute would be a few minutes longer. I emailed him first thing to ask if there was any way we could bump the appointment to 5:15pm, to ensure I'm not running late. No answer, so I call him Monday evening and leave a voicemail. Tuesday morning, no contact yet, I follow up on my email. His reply, "sorry for the delay, look forward to meeting you at 5". At that point, really started to question his communication skills and whether he would be a good representative to find me a job. I replied back, stating the call and emails were regarding a time change and to please confirm if it's ok. No answer. So I leave work early and race to the Aerotek office. I arrive at 5pm and the doors are locked and lights are off. I call him, no answer. It was if he never planned to be there. Also, they didn't have a proper plaque or sign for the door. Instead there was an 8 x 10" pixelated printout of the Aertek logo taped to the wall. Crossing Aerotek off my list and looking to other agencies with their act together. Candidates have busy lives and don't deserve to be treated in that manner.
Did not send link to fill out info prior to my orientation meeting. Called me 20 minutes prior to orientation to find out why I never filled out info. Started by saying contract with hiring company was just for recruiting, then said I would be working for Aerotek for 2 years, then changed it to 6 months after avoiding the question 4 times. Was not told about the need for critical documents to be able to take their drug screening. Offered to pay my dr or purchase a drug test for screening Allowed me to interview for and accept a position without checking for documents and job offer was rescinded, due to their lack of communication. My reputation was tarnished and they caused me a loss of wages that I will be suing them for.
I discovered Aerotek completely by chance while endlessly searching job site after job site and I began working within 2 weeks! They are amazing! I worked with Kyle and it was as if finding my job was his life's mission and I thank God for that daily! The company he got me into will most certainly be the company I one day retire from! Thank you Aerotek for finding me my perfect job! I would recommend EVERYONE work with them!😊
A erotek has given me great opportunities, they sent me to a fantastic location. It worked out well, my recruiter has immensely helped me throughout my tenure with the company. The staff are incredibly professional and are prompt to your needs.
I went into the office in Philadelphia Pa and I had one -on-one with an recruiter who never called me ever in reference to employment. I’ve called her numerous of times and still nothing. I even asked the receptionist not to connect me with this particular recruiter, and he turns around and connects me with her voice mail. As I figured,she didn’t answer. Her name is Care. If she informative and helpful, then maybe she’s worked on customer service skills 😬
Thank you Aerotec for giving me a chance to achieve great full time employment.
I have worked for Aerotek Horsham for 3months and it has been great that is mostly thanks to the the awesome representative named Abby rouse she is the best nicest person in the world would love to work with her over and over thank you so much
I want to say THANKYOU to Kaitlin Delaney! She was VERY helpful & willing to help me out, and it didn’t take forever. Thanks again Mrs Delaney for all your help.
Must read... Aerotek Irving TX location Aerotek gracefully found me employment. I was let go due to a background or credit check, which I understood completely. But that's when aerotek lost all integrity towards me. My recruiter, Alyssa act as though she wouldn't tell me. But that's beyond my major issue, I still had two paychecks in the hold, and I have been lied too from everyone I talked to. Keep in mind I received direct deposit which is instant, I still have no received any funds. I ask my opm onsite premises manager kristel she told me it's a guarantee Friday. Friday came nothing. It's 11.04.2017, rent was due on the 1st, which if I was paid on time I would not be subject to any late fees. Next I called the office to speak with payroll department a lady named Susanna who told me it was an issue needed to be fixed with corporate she will get back to me with confirmation everything is fixed. This was at 11:30 that friday, why is it she left at 2:30 and left a Thurs message on the answering machine. Was she avoiding me. But being as she left I asked to speak to her manager name Tracy who gave me the green light, oh my issue was fixed and my funds should be sent via direct deposit as usual. It's Saturday guys still I have not gotten paid. Now this is the same aerotek who received awards for best staffing in 2017. So why do they personnel lie to people there supposedly helping. Aerotek is a total disgrace now if they had awards for best lying staff 2017 kudos to them but that is not what they received accolades for. I really want to understand why they doing me like this. I honestly trusted them and im not mad at all they let me go, I'm distraught that they haven't paid me and if I wait till 11.06.2017 when they open again my rent and everything is late which I have to foot the bill. I heard sorry from everyone I dealt with but sorry isn't going to pay my bills on time. Oh and by the way my name is Bryant so you don't think this was some fairy tale review no this is real life..
In a four week span, I had issues with my hours on my check. Nothing to do with Aeroteck but still issues. Ben from the Tampa office, personally checked in with me daily. He called on his way in to work and at the end of the day about my hours. He personally follow my payroll all the way thru for me. The second time that I had a problem, I called him on a Sunday. Even thou he was spending time with his children he got back with me promptly! He followed up on Monday and had the lady doing my payroll call me before noon. Ben knows how important your paycheck is and he is vigilant on seeing your issue through
This place was a absolute waste of my time went 3 times still no job. very dishonest staff Camilla S said a company was hiring and then sent an email saying the opposite.
Aerotek is one of the best job placement agencies. The employment agents are highly professional, and helpful finding the right fit. I dealt with Nicole through Aerotek, very honest, very friendly, and always ready to help and assist my employment, she was there for every question I had and with the right advise. I had great success with them and this was leading to full time employment. A very good experience and outcome.
They seem to hire only fresh from college kids as recruiters. This results in having to deal with unprofessional employees. They harassed my references to death, trying to set appointments to get THEIR company's business, when the call was suppose to be about getting references on ME.
Very bad business they told me I had the job then John M call in said I will not get the job very bad company they do people wrong.
I generally do not post complaints about a service online since I would rather resolve the issue with that individual or his/her superiors but cannot let this slide on the account of so many people like myself are dependent on the recruiter doing their due diligence to get them positioned with their next employer.I have dealt with Aerotek & Robert Half in the past and never received the most absolute poorest service from recruiter, D'Angelo Harris. To make a long story short, I was well qualified for the position advised by this recruiter and seemed like a perfect fit according to my background experience. I was told that this employer was eager to hire and needed positions filled quickly and was assured Id be a priority to get my info on their desk sooner than later (approx. week). After no response to my phone calls and emails I finally get a response from the recruiter asking if I was still interested in the position ( of coarse I'm interested and ready to start) 3 weeks later, no interview. After providing him letters of recommendation, I was able to get the interview (1 month later) and the recruiter sent me the information prior to the day of our meeting. Despite the poor experience, I was ready to forgive and forget since I now have the interview and I'm in control and all is RIGHT ..?...I was so WRONG... the recruiter did not put the building # of the office and my 20 minutes early turned out to be 30 minutes late since I had to ask bystanders and go to each building on that street for assistance to locate the interview whereabouts. I left messages for the recruiter with simple instructions ( provide the building #) and just as I expected, no guidance along with no answer to my simple request. The interview went great and I apologized for arriving late and thanked them for taking the time out to meet with me. The recruiter called me back later that day with no apology due to the lack of information he provided and was concerned since I arrived late and did not start off on a good note with the employer ( as if its my fault) and than asks if I'm totally committed to landing my next career since he is 100% committed to my success. I could not believe what I was hearing and advised him this experience was not as I expected nor have I encountered with other recruiters. Lack of communication & guidance played a role and he needs to own up to these mishaps. Despite the issues I let him know I was interested and ready to move forward with next steps for hire and was assured that I would get a call the next day....CALL NEVER CAME. 3 weeks later I'm left in limbo not knowing if he even spoke with the company. He also advised that I do not send a thank you letter/ email to the interviewer since it will bog up their busy schedule taking 3 minutes out of their day to read it. D'Angelo Harris does not represent Aerotek to the highest standard and paints a bad picture of the company due to his poor work ethic. If I replicated his service at my prior job I would be fired or giving warning with a write up. Nobody deserves this type of experience especially if they are in transition from job to job and are soley relying on the guidance of their recruiter. Get your staff the proper training needed or simply look for the right candidate to represent your company. I wish all the jobseekers luck in finding employment via Aerotek. Hopefully they will have a recruiter fully committed and makes it a priority to set them up for a successful interview with the new employer.
. Really glad aerotek was able to find me a profession I love with good pay. At first there was miscommunications with aerotek and the current job they were trying to assign me but at the end I landed the job. They were able to answer me all questions. I would def. recommend aerotek!!
Job through Aerotek resulted in a very good positive experience for me and lead into a perm position with a good respectable company! Dealt with Cory through Aerotek. very good honest and on top of his job with all the help he gave me, was there for every phone call I had or questions, would I refer this company or Cory, YES! a very good experience and outcome.
