    I worked at Aston Carter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They take time to train and invest in their employees, you visit different sites, have fun team building activities and get an in depth understanding of the company and their overall goals.

    They give you some freedom to work from home or take a break if needs be, my manager did anyway.

    At one of the reward ceremonies Sean Zimdahl the CEO gave an inspiring speech about speaking up and putting your own ideas forward. I often saw him in the Holborn office and he seems very personable and genuine.

    The office environment is young and hungry, they play music and ring bells if someone reaches their target which is nice.

    There is fruit/tea/coffee and a lot of free lunches, when you join the management team take you out to lunch

    Cons

    Although the training is thorough it is quite factual and theory based but most of it does not apply to the day to day tasks and it was extremely disorganized in terms of practical training.

    Everyone seemed to have their own way of doing things which made it hard to learn as every member of the team would show you a different technique.

    Heavily male dominated, not really a con just a heads up

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training people on practical day to day tasks. The reason I left was because it was extremely difficult to learn and keep up with the pace of work as it was disorganized. Although training was intense it was too broad to be useful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aston Carter (Seattle, WA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Brief, on point, staff is friendly and helpful in helping you find jobs that you are looking for. Not a lot of questions asked, but most of them is figuring out how you fit to their clients.
