Talked to a couple of employees at a college career fair. Told them I was interested in LA location.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Charlotte, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They asked way too many personal questions, of which 80% weren't job related. Still glad I didn't get it though- 60 hour work weeks at 50K a year. They weren't very organized and it was very stuffy. They tried to make it comfortable, but failed. Also, the office is difficult to find and they don't give you proper directions.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a difficult time in your personal life and how you overcame it? They literally asked that at least 5 times.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview and in person interview; spent some time with recruiters so that I could see what they do. Most of the employees are young. There was an emphasis on how much potential money you can make, but not a lot of content or context about the job itself. In that sense, it sounds more like a traditional sales job. I sell cars now. I know when someone is trying to sell something to me. If they're bragging about how much you can make, it isn't always a good sign of corporate culture.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at TEKsystems.

    Interview

    I approached TEKsystems at my college career fair. I had an on campus interview the next day and was sent an online test/background info that I had to fill out within 24-48 hours. The interview was really about making sure you want to go into sales and sales is what you're passionate for. The lady interviewing me literally asked me why I would be good at sales 5 times and expected 5 different answers, and "being a people person" wasn't a good enough answer for them. I haven't gotten an offer yet, but I accepted a second round interview in their office in Chicago.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TEKsystems in November 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was three rounds. I received an interview after meeting recruiters at an on campus career fair. The first round was a phone interview, pretty generic questions more along the lines of getting to know your background and experience. The second round interview was in their downtown Chicago office. It lasted about 1.5 hours and was relaxed, mostly questions about why sales, your personality and what motivated you. The third round was also in their downtown office and was a half day interview where I met with several employees. During this round many of the questions felt inappropriate and not related to the position. A lot of questions about my personal and family life were asked. For example: Are your parents paying for your educations? And tell me about your family, are your parents married still? Just bizarre questions to ask during an interview. The interviewers claimed it was because TekSystems was "like a family and they wanted to really know you" but I got a more nosy and intrusive feeling from the questions. None of the interview questions were particularly difficult, mostly related to sales and character traits. I was told to call back two days later to follow up after the third round. I left multiple emails and voice mails during the course of the week but I didn't get a response until a week later when I was told they wanted somebody who could start immediately (I graduate in May) and with more experience. I was not compensated for gas and travel for the 2nd or 3rd round interviews. None of the stages were particularly difficult but it felt like the whole process was a waste of time.

    1 Phone, 1 face to face with 3 people. It is very easy if you can articulate these points. Most people pass the interview because they need bodies.
