I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TEKsystems in December 2013.
Interview Details – I talked to two different recruiters at TEKsystems. After talking to them, they found me a company to interview with within just a few days.
Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary, it was all fairly easy for me. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much to negotiate since I had given as much information as I could to the recruiters and they had already negotiated a price that I was happy with.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at TEKsystems in June 2012.
Interview Details – Simple process and interview. Just know your information and be excited to potentially get a job. They make you interview with TEKsystems prior to interviewing with your future client. If you make it past the TEKsystems interview they will coach you and basically spoon feed your answers and personality type for that client.
Most client interviews are easy by the time they tell you what do.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They select how much you will be receiving and offer you an arrange of packages. You have a certain set value each package still gives the same amount of pay. Straight pay, vacation, vacation + holiday, vacation + holiday + benefits. Each package with more benefits decreases your hourly pay.
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TEKsystems.
Interview Details – Applied online for several positions which matched interests. Got a callback for one of positions by recruiter. Setup date and time for 40 min phone screen, fairly basic interview, asked about interests, experiences, etc. Passed and got brought in for 1 on 1 and panel interview at headquarters.
Interview Question – What is your passion? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems.
Interview Details – initial communication started with an account manager after I met her on my college campus. We emailed back and forth for a while and finally I got in to do a one on one interview with the director. The director asked a million questions and took notes all over my resume that I had just given her. It looked unprofessional and slightly unorganized but she was very nice just demanding of what my needs were and exactly why I was there interviewing. She told me to call her in two weeks to follow up which seemed a little weird to me. I decided it wasnt really a job I would want so didnt go further with the interview process

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems in September 2013.
Interview Details – Applied and sent my resume online and quickly heard back from a recruiter. Had a telephone interview with her where they dug into my background, previous places of employment, what went wrong at those previous jobs, my work ethic, etc. Be mindful that this is a staffing agency so they will dig deep into your background and will find out and verify everything. If you lie, they will find out as it is their job to weed out people who are not qualified for a position. I was given immediate feedback as to how I did and then we set a time for me to go to the office and meet/interview with the manager of the office in my city.
The interview with the manager of the office was pretty intense, but not unbearable. Majority of the questions had to do with my work ethic and the type of person I am. You could tell the goal was to not only find someone who would work hard but also someone who would fit in well with the employees who were already there (they are really big on the company culture and the office dynamic). The questions were tough but only because the typical/perfect answer was not accepted. I really had to dig deep and be honest with myself and the manager of the office. Again, I received immediate feedback and we set a time for me to come in for my panel interview.
The panel interview included 4-5 managers in a room and they each tag teamed asking questions. Most of the questions were ones that had already been asked by either the recruiter or the manager of the office. The key to this is making sure your answers are all consistent. It is important to be professional but also be yourself because one of these people could potentially be your direct supervisor. They informed me of what the next steps would be and let me know to be on the lookout for a call from the manager of the office. I received a call a day or so later that let me know what the managers thought of me and my interview. Once given that feedback we set up a time for me to come in for my half day interview.
The half day was laid back, but remember that it is still an interview. I started with a recruiter who showed me some of the tools I would be using if offered a position. I stayed with them until the morning meeting. It was very interesting to be able to be a fly on the wall and see exactly what a typical work day would consist of. Shortly after the meeting I had several mini interviews with different managers. It was weird because unlike the previous interviews I did not receive immediate feedback. Once all of the mini interviews were over I went to a one-on-one lunch with the manager of the office to debrief. We discussed how I think things went and what the next steps would be from there.
Shortly after I was called back by the manager of the office and offered a position.
Interview Question – What are some of your weaknesses, not including "I take on too much work" and "I don't know when to stop working"? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation but everything was reasonable so I didn't see the need for negotiation.
I applied online and interviewed at TEKsystems.
Interview Details – Started with a phone interview. I had a second interview at the office one on one, and then the following day I shadowed for half a day. I was wary from the beginning, but the half day sealed the deal. I didn't really like their daily routine. Everyone I talked to emphasized that it wasn't just an 8-5 job. The day starts at 7 and could end with dinner with a client (as well as your lunch break with a client).
Interview Question – Why TEKsystems? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at TEKsystems in November 2012.
Interview Details – TEK was great. However, communications with the client were confusing and intermittent. An additional TEK recruiter had to keep pinging the Program Manager. Specific promises were made by the client Program Manager regarding career track opportunities and possibility for promotion which were not honored, despite very high level of success.
Interview Question – None. They came to me directly because of my expertise in this area. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Odd. Client did not offer the position that was shared with me by an inside Senior Manager for the Project. Additionally, with this and other engagements they paid me far less than TEK's rates for the position. At the same time they were hiring project managers (mostly Accenture) like there was a 2 for 1 sale.
