Portland, Oregon USA Phone:
Aerotek horrible, horrible, horrible agency...run, don't walk away~~ Portland Oregon
WOW...where to begin! This agency's owner must NOT CARE about who they have representing them which in turn means they must NOT CARE about sustaining a POSITIVE reputation as well! I am a Human Resources professional & have worked with many staffing agencies...Aerotek by far is the absolute WORSE agency every created & I find it hard to believe they are STILL in business at all! I relocated to the Portland area & of course most of the opportunities are now being pushed through these "agencies" so I too have to "go through them" to find opportunities. Working with many agencies in my profession, Aerotek was definitely NOT one I wanted to use having had horrific experience from them in the St Louis area but unfortunately the position I found appealing was being offered through these idiots! So, I'm going through the process... & the company (NOT AEROTEK) liked me as much as I like them...yah! It never happens but I instantly loved this company & they loved me -- win win!! Unfortunately Aerotek is just as challenged in Portland as they were in STL but I got through it.
After working at the company I almost left because of having to deal with Andrew & Illina at Aerotek! Andrew is supposed to be the "head guy" which is who I reached out to because Illina (a staffer) has been repeatedly rude, demeaning, judgemental & ignorant. She had the audacity to get irate with ME because I was trying to get a hold of MY staffer who had left me a voice mail...long story short it was so bad I had to resort to recording my calls with her. After advising Andrew of this & playing these conversations...he was remarkably shocked at her behavior & advised me that he would take care of this immediately. Needless to say he did NOTHING, no follow up, no reprimand, NOTHING! I was so appalled by their treatment I went to the company I was working through them at & put EVERYTHING on line. I told my supervisor there that I will no longer feed the hand of Aerotek and unless they terminated the contract and hired me themselves I would QUIT...it was that bad. In this day in age to walk away from a "job" may sound ludicrous but this agency left me no choice...I could not & would not continue any relationship with them for my own sanity. As most of you know, agencies make it difficult to "get out of a contract" but due to another "temp" working at the same company they pretty much made a deal & the company hired me out from under this nightmare.
I'm nearing the end of my first year & couldn't be happier with the company that fought for me. As you can imagine, Aerotek is NO WHERE around this company anymore. I do, however, enjoy educating many about Aerotek & I'm happy to report that many of my professional contacts nationwide refuse to work with them (most of them too had horror stories involving Aerotek) and I advise employee's of the same. It's a wonderful feeling when you can not only help others by warning them of the dangers of dealing with Aerotek (too many negative instances to spout here!) as well as hopefully being a part of the team to get them OUT OF BUSINESS!!! Feel free to join this team with me...membership is growing each day! :) Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and remember to heed my warning or you'll be the next member of this team! :) Take care all!!!
