The Aerotek employees at the Mendota Heights, Mn branch are very unreliable. The front desk phone always went to voicemail. I contacted Mn Unemployment once I was let go for no good reason by Blue Cross and Aerotek and they wanted to know why my employer Aerotek did...

I have a Class 3 felony, aggravated battery, 11 months old. I told Aerotek and the employer they sent me to, so as to be upfront and honest with them going into the interview. Aerotek contacted the potential employer, and due to my experience as a machinist, the...

Randstad Usa - Don't go to College/Bay office at lunch hour: it's a waste of time.

Don't bother visiting the Randstad office at College and Bay during lunch hour: there is not receptionist. A sign informs that she is on lunch, and visitors can sign in, however to complete the sign in process, you MUST know the name of the person you are visiting, otherwise your info is not processed. And this is what Randstad calls "good customer practice", being "responsive to customer needs" and other meaningless PR. For myself, I will contact companies directly and more than likely a narrow, focused search will give me more interviews and if/when offered a job, a rate of pay that's not reduced by the commission Randstad would shave my annual salary as a placement fee.

I'VE ONLY JUST STARTED (AND POSSIBLY FINISHED) WITH IG IN LESS THAN A MONTH'S TIME, HOWEVER, NOTHING WAS EVER PROMISED BEYOND THE FIRST FOUR HOUR TASK IN MY LOCAL GEOGRAPHICAL AREA OF THE SO. CALIFORNIA DESERT. AS IT WAS, IT TURNED OUT THAT THEY NEEDED TWO FACILITIES...

I worked a temporary contract with Ranstad. The contract lasted 6 months and was not renewed. The compensation was low and the benefits they offered were unsatisfactory and unaffordable. Ranstad does not offer paid holidays and does not allow accrual for time -off. At...

Staffing agencies are famous for trying to block peoples' unemployment claims. It is regretful your state's UE did not see thru their false allegations.

I was contacted by a recruiter who claims they received my resume online. In actuality someone from my previous job went to them and gave them their manager's name. I am close friends with that manager. They immediately called (the manager) to set a time that they...

Insight Global is below par to other Temp Agencies. First their phone interviews are awkward and they set me up with an awful employer who needed a mother rather than an office assistant. After 3 weeks I have still not been paid my days of work. No direct deposit, just...

I've been with Aerotek for nearly 8 weeks. In that time, I was roped into exorbitantly expensive insurance and have not been paid twice. I have children, so of course when I was looking for insurance, I wanted something with ER and hospital coverage. The only option...

Standard recruiting practice (at least in Canada) is to check references AFTER successful interview. If they are asking for manager's contact before even sending you to the interview, they just want sales leads, there is no job for you. They called me that they have...

I was approached for a contract from their Boston office. I interviewed for the role and the client wanted to hire me for it. They asked if they could tell them I accepted. I said not until we came to terms and had a signed contract. I have done many, many contracts in...
