Interviewed at TEKsystems

Interview Details – Interview went very smooth and I was comfortable. He asked me basic questions about how I handle situations and who my biggest influence is and why. It was a positive experience. I was offered the second half day interview. I feel confident. Great overall experience so far.

Interview Question – How do you handle ambiguous situations?   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 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).

Recruiter Interview

Recruiter
Bellevue, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems in March 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process conisted of:
1. A call from the regional internal recruiter. She asked some basic questions regarding why I would be interested in the position and what my career goals were. Pretty much, feeling out my personality to see if I would be a fit in a young competitive company.
2. The local Director of Business Operations (runs the office) gave me a call and had a pretty similar conversation. Really casual. He dug in a little bit more to my background and asked about the job I was currently working at.
3. Went to the office to meet with the Director. He asked more specific questions around my resume and also dug in to my personal background. Seemed like he really wanted to know what made me tick.
4. The half-day interview, the final step. This starts as a job shadow with several of the recruiters for the first hour or so where they show you the tools that are used on the job and explain some of the lingo that is being thrown around the office. This is also a time where the individual is being rated on their personal skills and ability to integrate with the other workers.
After about an hour, it is time for the panel interview. This will consist of three Account Managers and they will take turns asking questions about a wide variety of things. Most of the questions will dig into work ethic, organization, company knowledge and previous experiences that lend themselves to a sales organization.
If the panel goes well, you will go back to the "pit" to shadow a couple more recruiters. Once again, this is to see how well you interact with everyone.
5. After a few days, I received a call from the Director and he offered me the position. I accepted and then came in a day later for paperwork.

Interview Question – What's ethical rule do you value most? What was a time when you found that you had to ignore or bend this value?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. I asked what the pay was and it was good compared to what I was making before so I just accepted.

Recruiter
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems in March 2013.

Interview Details – To even be considered for this opportunity you have to be either a recent college grad or a person that has been in the workforce with consistent job history. They do not like job hoppers here. There are 3 steps to this interview. 1 phone screen with HR. 1 in person with the DBO. If you pass those 3 you attend a half day interview where you get to experience hands on a day in the life of a recruiter. There is also a panel interview during this half day where about 3-5 Account Managers mixed with Recruiters throw questions at you left and right before you can answer the first question. They can move rather fast, this can be all done within 2 weeks time and job offer day after the half day. So be prepared to move quickly.

Interview Question – The personal questions were the hardest for me. They literally want to know your life story.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is room for negotiation.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – Applied through an external website, was very prompt in initial phone call and thereafter always told me when to expect a follow up and always followed through. Initial preliminary phone interview------->phone interview -------->1 on 1------->panel interview------->job shadow same day if you make it through the panel. Culture seemed outgoing and helpful but not for everyone they expect you to share a lot of personal information.

Interview Question – Every question was behavioral in nature such as tell me about a time when you...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation a flat 30k with living in bigger cities its adjusted very minimally.

Philadelphia, PA

I interviewed at TEKsystems in May 2013.

Interview Details – It started with a normal phone interview, which was basically all screening questions. After that we scheduled a one on one interview (with a sales manager). Pretty much all of the questions were behavioral in nature. They also give you a brief overview of what the company does and how they do it differently than competitors.

Interview Question – They asked about if they called the closest person in your life, what personality trait would they say will hinder you in your career.   Answer Question

Recruiter
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at TEKsystems.

Interview Details – This is a very long, slow process. I am not sure if this is by design or because they are incompetent. If you go through the same interview process, you will be wondering the same.

Unfortunately, the interviewer asked me if I was applying for other positions and I mentioned that I was being flown out to Chicago to interview with another company and the interview should have just ended at that point. She basically gave up and clearly took it personally for some reason. I found her and the entire organization to be very unprofessional.
