Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TEKsystems (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

Interview

First there was the screening phone call, where you really had to sell your love for sales and money as a main motivator if you wanted to get through. Next there was the in-office interview. Very intimate and lasted for almost two hours. Be prepared to go back into high school. They want to know your motivations (financial) and to see that you are an agressive sales-type who can also share some personal stories. Finally is the half-day shadow, where you will go into the office and spend half a day with select employees. Make sure to ask a lot of questions and do your best to stand out!

    Interview

    The initial interview was a phone screen with DBO. I was instructed to find a few recruiters who work for TEKsystems and call them to ask about the role, expectations, hardest part, easiest part, etc. After that was completed I called the DBO back and then an onsite interview with the DBO was scheduled. I also met with 4 Account Manager's. I did a 1/2 day, where I sat with a few different recruiters so I could see first hand what some of their day to day duties.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at TEKsystems (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online. Within a week or two I was contacted by a regional recruiter for a phone interview. The interview was pretty standard - tell me about yourself, are you competitive, why sales/recruiting, describe for me a time when, etc. I was moved to the second round of interviews in which I did a branch visit and panel interview with the branch manager and an account manager. They were very polite and engaging. Prior to the interview you fill out a background report with experience and they used that to guide the interview, which lasted about an hour and a half. Following the interview they said they would be in contact with me within the next week and if I didn't hear from them then I should call. Well, I didn't hear from them. I sent them both follow up thank you emails, only heard back from the ranch manager saying he would be in contact with me soon. Another week goes by, no word. I sent another email on a Thursday mornjng inquiring where they were I the process and that I was still very interested. No word back. I called on Monday, no answer. I called on Tuesday and finally got the branch manager who informed me that I interviews all and I was an ideal candidate, but they wee going with someone else. eexpernice

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TEKsystems.

    Interview

    It's a screening interview so you have to make sure to say the right things, be a company man/woman. They want to make sure that you see your future with the company. They have an intensive training process, so I don't think they want to waste it on someone who will leave their company after a year or two.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at TEKsystems (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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.
