Difficult Interview

Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – Contacted by a Recruiter, had a phone screening and then an in-person interview that lasted an hour and a half with the Sales Director. After this, I was brought in for a half-day interview where I met almost the entire office, had a panel interview where I had to role play, and went to lunch with two recruiters.

Interview Question – "Why do you want an MBA?" and "When is the last time you did something nice for someone"   Answer Question

User Experience Designer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – It was a pleasure to find that TEKsystems regularly seeks a face-to-face interview with Consultants (even virtually), in an effort to get better acquainted with each candidate. They also explained during the initial interview that even in preparation for being placed, during the assignment and after the assignment, they take the initiative to make sure that each Consultant is more qualified (even through basic training) and has a good experience while on assingment. I would definitely recommend TEKsystems and use them again when seeking employment in the future.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Richmond, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview, then in- person. The phone interview was pretty typical. The in- person interview took almost an hour and a half and the hiring manager really wants to get to know you, asking personal questions. Everyone who I came in contact with was very nice and seemed like they really liked their job,

Easy Interview

Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – The recruiter actually got a hold of me first and then took her two weeks to reply to my response. Then we set up a phone interview for a couple weeks in the future. After the phone interview, she wanted to set up a F2F interview and asked me to follow up. I followed up and no response. I emailed her twice over the next 2 months and called her 3 times. No response. I FINALLY got a hold of her and she had the nerve to tell me that they went with someone else...without telling me they actually didn't want to give me a 2nd interview like they said they did. Only reason she picked up the phone the last time is because I mentioned her actions to someone I knew working in the same company and he told her off for not getting back to me. I was EXTREMELY dissatisfied with the hiring process. Other recruiters are probably better at their jobs with TEKsystems but certainly not this one.

Interview Question – I really don't remember...it was THAT long ago.   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at TEKsystems in February 2014.

Interview Details – One informal interview. When they told me they didn't have anything for me, then wanted references, it became clear that what they really wanted was references they could call and pester fr jobs.

ISSO Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Saint Louis, MO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TEKsystems in January 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process was excellent! They spent ample time not only knowing technical skills, personnel skills - BUT - but personal needs, career goals and objectives and where "I" would like to see myself.

Interview Question – If we offered you the position and you declined at the last minute, would you fully disclose why you declined? If so, was it something we did wrong?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems in June 2013.

Interview Details – They will not trust you with anything and run countless background checks before they even start sending your resume out. I did not see that they have any special connections in the jacksonville area.
