Recruiter (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – 27 February 2018
The people here are what makes the company. There is a lot of great coaching and mentorship that happens on a team level but you need to be ready for a feedback rich environment. You need to be quick on your feet and ready to change pace at anytime. There are a lot of great incentives for meeting goals but it comes at a price with work/life balance. I would definitely recommend working here but only if you can handle the rush.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Menomonee Falls, WI – 20 February 2018
I was very unhappy with the company I was placed at. We were not allowed to have our cell phones out in view. We couldn't even check them if there was an emergency, and I had 3 kids. I'm not talking personally about Aston Carter, but the company they staffed me at, PBBS. They also would watch the clock and make a comment if you were not logged into your computer before your time started. I clocked in 1 minute late and I was talked to.
No cell phoine use at all, even break, kept track if you were a min late
Corporate Recruiter (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – 6 February 2018
Long hours, from 7:30 am to at least 5:30 pm or longer. You start off hourly there at 15 dollars an hour and have to meet your threshold there twice before you hit salary. Not enjoyable. Managers were young. Workplace culture was great. Everything else was not what i imagined when I worked there.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Alameda, CA – 23 January 2018
AC gives you a lot of double talk and lies about positions they have open. They refuse to give you the facts about job listings and try to distract you with endless chatter about interview techniques. They post one description and salary online and tell you another story when they call you.
AR/Dispute Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – 19 October 2017
I have nothing to say. I was interview and hired to do AR work and ended up doing disputes for my duration. I have over 20 years of collection and another 10 in credit. I would like to use my experience.
Nice employer. Paid weekly. Benefits presented were amicable but I already have benefits.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – 29 August 2017
Disappointed was on a 90 contract with Aston Carter for Hyatt Vacation Properties and received a call at 6:30 PM on a Sunday that the contract was being completed. Advised I did nothing wrong or erred in the performance of my duties but that the workload was caught up.
Good group to work with at the assigned position
Limited training. IT issues and limited accessibility to programs to do job
ProCard Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – 5 August 2017
The job was great. A typical day was not too hard. I think if you want to have a great day at work, you should answer the question "Why do you want to work at all." Commit yourself to a purpose and then fulfill it. Aston Carter helped me find a purpose to work toward. My manager was very flexible with me to help me fulfill a good work-life balance. The hardest part of the job was leaving it to respond as I was needed to move to Kent Ohio with my wife who had been awarded a full ride scholarship to participate in her Graduate Program. The most enjoyable part of my job was that I had good experiences getting to know the people that I worked with.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – 14 June 2017
competitive sales environment in which the process is more focused on rather than the results. They care more about how you look than what you do. Very clique-ish environment. Transparency is claimed but one of the most gossiping work cultures I have had the privilege to work in.
Technologist (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – 15 April 2017
Considering CT scans cost about $3,000 and they want to pay a tech $20 an hour I don't know where they crunch these numbers. It's companies like this that make our talented professionals look shameful this job should pay well over $25 an hour and everyone knows this!
Accounts payable (Former Employee) – Wayne, PA – 14 March 2017
I was harrassed to try to accept the position immediately, within an hour of an interview. The promise of more money "coming out of their profit". When that didn't work, I was harassed about the hours and flexible. All I simple wanted was an extra day or two to consider my options as I had multiple job offered to consider.
Aston Carter places job applicants in high paying contract and direct hire positions. The only con was their health insurance, if your placed on a contract job and need it. I found it did not offer very good coverage, not a problem if you are place in a direct hire position. As a contractor, I was paid weekly.
