    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview to start and I was able to get an in-person interview after that. I met with the business director for that office and it lasted around 45 minutes. Very laid back and introductory. Following this I had a half-day in which I had another interview that lasted about an hour in between that. The half day ended after they took me to lunch.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very rude and seemed uninterested and short. Interview seemed very staged and never asked follow up questions regarding responses, seemed like she was just reading off of a script. Phone call was very short. Was told I would hear back by the end of the week and did not hear back for three weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to come in by a recruiter to explore opportunities. She talked alot about how much value she could add to my job search and advised she was going to research several companies and get back to me.

    What frustrated me is that she called my references without having any strong leads or opportunities. Lesson learned on my part to not share those until there is a viable option. I need to ensure my references are not encumbered unnecessarily.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial screening interview with a recruiter, an in-person interview with the director, and then a half day shadow with 5-6 recruiters and managers. They asked very personal questions and seemed very interested in getting to know me before starting the official interview questions. The director and an account manager took me out to lunch after my half day shadow and gave me a verbal offer.

    Application

    One test, one phone screen and one in person interview with client manager.
    The online test was made by teksystems, there was one test about Object Oriented Development and another about .NET development.
    The phone interview was with a developer of the team, we went pretty quickly on my background and then continued with technical questions.
    The final interview at the client places lasted 1 hour and half, I first got some sort of IQ test with logic's question. Then I talk with the manager of the team for a little less that 1 hour with a lot of questions about front end. Finally I met the team

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Initial interview was with my recruiter who has been in the field for 20 years and very good at his job. It was for a specific role and was conducted over the phone. Pretty casual and organic conversation. Seemed like recruiter actually read resume.
    Tempo was relaxed but also very to the point and more of a get to know you and what are your goals type approach.
    After getting the first job through him and than moving on to a second job he prepped me about the interviewer at the new client. Afterwards he asked to recall interview questions and formality so to prep other candidates. I found this both nice and potentially troublesome since I'm supplying Intel to potential competition.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I've interviewed with them twice. My interviews were a year apart from each other and I have a solid resume and applicable experience. For both interviews, I made it to the 2nd round and never heard back afterwards. The interviewers I was also supposed to meet with turned out to not be who I was actually meeting with. Extremely unprofessional. They also ask really personal questions and go into a lot depth about your family life and what your parents do. I can't believe I wasted my time trying with this company. After this experience, this is definitely a company I would never want to work for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Got a verbal offer and the next day THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS - Please Read: Overall, such an uncomfortable experience! Started the interview process in September. Initial phone call went really great! I felt a good connection and was excited about the company. She scheduled me to come into the office about a month and a half from the phone call and told me to fill out the work history form within 24 hours. She also told me to keep an eye out for the confirmation email of the in-office interview. Filled out the form and never heard from her. Emailed AND called her MULTIPLE times and never heard back. A week before the 'scheduled' interview, I'd basically given up but thought I'd give it one last shot and emailed again. Got a nonchalant response saying "oh yeah let me get that confirmation to you!" (already unprofessional). The in-office interview went well. Very deep conversation about family background and what drives you. Felt good about TEK and was excited for next steps! Was given an 'assignment' to reach out to two employees I had no connection with and interview them. Once I did that, I had a conversation with the person I interviewed with and set up my half-day interview. The atmosphere of the office and overall vibe from everyone really turned me off. Did not feel very welcomed. Felt like I was being judged very hard by everyone, not in a normal interview-way. Didn't feel a strong connection with the people. Although my half-day experience wasn't great, I was still very interested in the position. Got a phone call a few days later offering me the job! He walked me through the compensation package and everything. He straight asked me if I would except, once given the formal written offer. I was caught off guard and said I am very interested and would love to think about it. The next day they called and said they changed their mind and weren't offering me the position anymore. Left a Voicemail and email. Very weird - everything happens for a reason - very glad this happened.
