I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Wichita, KS) in June 2015.
Phone interview then meeting in a small office. The interview focused a lot on customer service experience I had at my former job instead of technical experience I had been trained for. This put me off a bit. Then I followed up and they stated the hiring manager at the company the contract was for had just returned and would let me know when there were updates. I did not recieve any updates for a few weeks so I inquired and another week has passed without my emails being returned. The recruiter did state they was always open for communication to help the potential employees get the job. We shall see.

The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems.
Inappropriate. Phone interview, online assessment, in person panel interview, half day at office. They seem nice and like a great company but the questions I was asked were a good bit too personal for a job interview especially with someone that would be your future boss. Was asked what my parents do, what my significant other did, how long we had been together, personal hardships, who else I was interviewing with... along with many other questions like that... Wish I had asked how these questions pertained to the job I was interviewing for...
- What do your parents do? Tell me your life story... What does your significant other do? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Did not want to work in a place that conducted such unprofessional interviews.. Turn over rate is 35%

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Raleigh, NC).
WORST INTERVIEW EVER! The process consisted of three steps: Phone Interview, In person interview, and finally a half-day in the office. The phone interview was very nice and professional. When I can in for the in person interview, things seemed to go well at first. However, half way through the interview, my interviewer asked me to describe some character flaws that I have struggled with in the past. They spent the majority of the interview ripping me apart and looking for different faults in my character. They asked very uncomfortable questions about personal life and came across as very unprofessional. They asked me to come in for a half day after the interview and I accepted in spite of my better instincts. When I came in for the half day, other members of the management team grilled me about issues they assumed that I had. It was an overall negative experience in which the interviewers did everything possible to make other people around them feel small. Life is too short to work with people who treat others this way.

After an employee recommendation, set up an interview within a week. Rescheduled (thankfully, because it appeared they had also scheduled for the wrong date anyway when they sent the cancellation). Telephone interview asked typical but almost antiquated questions. Felt very forced and condescending. From the start it felt like he/she wasn't interested in conducting the interview, so why bother setting one up? Very different feel from the employee who had made the recommendation. Sounded very young and slightly judgmental. My overall impression is that they are looking for someone to give their whole life to the company, and I'm sure my interview did nothing to suggest I was willing to do so. Interesting way of weeding people out. I'm sure it works for those who can make Teksystems their life.
- Strengths and weaknesses, what I did to prepare for the interview, why I want a job in sales, most difficult job, most difficult thing in my life... Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL).
The interview process was unorganized. I flew all the way to Chicago to interview (paying with my own money). When I got there, the two senior recruiters I was supposed to meet with were not there and I ended up just having a conversation with two account executives who did not have much authority in the hiring process. I followed up twice and never heard back.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Melville, NY) in May 2015.
I was contacted by HR after posting my resume on my university alumni portal. The process was very quick and timely. It consisted of a phone screening, phone interview, in-person interview and a half day. At the end, they require two references before extending you an offer. They really want to get to know who you are so its a little bit more in-depth and personal than a typical interview. They also want to know that you are money driven and have a willingness to help people.
- Focused on failures and successes in both college and high school. Asked about strengths and weaknesses of both yourself in your current job as well as your employer. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Cedar Rapids, IA) in May 2015.
They start off with a phone interview. After that you go on to interview with the director of operations for that location. If all goes well you get a job shadow and they take you to lunch. After the job shadow they tell you to give them a week to get back to you. They send out an email if you don't get hired.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.
A lot of very personal questions were asked during the interview. For example, I was asked what my parents did for a living. Many very personal questions were asked. I did not feel uncomfortable but a little overwhelmed with how much she wanted to know about me. This could be good or bad. Be careful how you answer questions.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2015.
It was a brief one on one interview. I was asked what type of jobs I had been applying for. I hadn't been applying for sales jobs, and this was specifically a sales job. Long story short, he could tell I wasn't on fire for sales, and marketing was more up my alley. The interviewer was very encouraging, but make sure you're on fire for sales.
