Contractor Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in January 2016.

Interview

Surprisingly, I've been contracting with TEKsystems on and off for over 8 years. Each and everytime the experience is the almost identical.

You get a call from the recruiter asking if you have this or that experience, when in fact they should already know in their records your current skill sets that are listed.

The general experience with these guys are that the recruiters and the account managers are pretty much non-responsive. Meaning, if the client has negative feedbacks or is not interested, you won't hear back from TEKsystems.

I even went on 3 follow-up interviews for the same client and at the end, I had to physically drive to TEKsystems to find out the status of my interview. One recruiter that I was working with, decided she was quitting and no one at the office ever informed me as such.

In general the recruiters are as much worth as a used car salesman in the Sahara Desert. They will sell you a dream job, but they will fail to deliver.

Interview Questions

  • The interview process with the recruiter is simple. They really have no idea what they are asking on behalf of the client. The real interview is with the client itself so save all that technical for the actual interview with the client.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Amusing - I found the opportunity and was told it had to go via the company's recruiter, TEKsystems, so I actually had to go through an interview process with TEKsystems after already having been interviewed and accepted by the customer. The process was professional but inflexible, including the candidate testing that they were supposed to do for new applicants before presenting them to the customer. As part of the process I also had to wait on a background check to be completed and take a drugs test.

    Negotiation

    I was already aware of and had agreed a rate with the end customer, which the TEKsystem reps were obviously not aware of. This led to an amusing but short discussion where they tried to convince me they had an agreement for $10 per hour less than the rate I had already agreed, and that the very best they could do - because they were "keen to have me onboard" - was $5 an hour less than what I had already agreed with the end customer.

    Interview

    Short sweet and to the point, I don't remember even much of an interview process I was just kinda called. I did a short interview over the phone. After which, I was brought in to fill out all of the required paperwork and then I started employment.

    Always go through the motions of getting people into the system, but I never hear anything from them after that. I've dealt with them on and off for 15 years.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Chicago, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I appeared for a face-to-face interview with TEK and a phone interview with their ultimate client. The client told me that I was the only one of the candidates sent his way by TEK whom he would even consider hiring. He phoned TEK within 30 minutes and approved the hire.

    Interview Questions

    • No real questions of substance with TEK. TEK is an 8A machine in essence and really gave me the impression they would not make a hire unless I was a "brotha." (This is the government side of TEK.) Fortunately they submitted me to the client and as I said above the hire was made less a face-to-face interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation at all. I get $45 an hour out of $89 an hour billed by a prime Federal contractor with no other benefit. Obviously we know where this is going.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TEKsystems (O'Fallon, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Initial meet was in a public place over lunch. Mike was well dressed, professional and easy to talk to. Basic fact about what I was looking for and what they could provide. He described a few positions he had available at that time. I stated what I was looking for. The next day I was contacted about the exact position I was trying to get.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was for another employer and TekSystems was the staffing agency for it. The process took long - almost one month. Their references requirements kept changing for instance they asked for 7 years old reference almost at the end of the process. Though spent more time with TekSystems to explain the technology and experience because the recruiter (a recent graduate) was not aware of the technology.
