    Contract Administrator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Baltimore, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with two different recruiters. The first one found me and seemed very practical and down to earth about the company. The second was very much part of their corporate machine and used lots of corporate buzzwords/jargon. The second phone interview/screening process was over an hour and she asked questions about where I saw myself, how I worked in groups, etc. She also asked me what I knew about their company from my research, which I found off-putting, she basically wanted me to read back to her their "about us" page from their website, including very specific statistics and locations. It seemed a bit much for a job they had recruited me for and I hadn't sought out.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Naperville, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The phone interview was fairly simple. The recruiter I spoke with asked the basic sales position questions. ( Why sales, past sales experience, what motivates you, etc.) I passed this portion of the interview and was set up with a 1:1 interview with the district manager. The DM asks more behavioral questions. This part is a little harder. I made it past this portion of the interview with a lot of confidence and was invited back for the last part of the interview process. This part was a on the job shadow day. I started the day off with a panel interview where two account mangers drill you with more specific behavioral questions. After about 45 mins of the panel interview I met with a bunch of different employees and learn what they do on a day-to-day basis. Overall, it was a pretty intense interview. I felt extremely confident that I did well and thought I would have been offered the position. I didn't hear back until about 2 weeks later in which i received a generic letter in the mail stating I wasn't going to be hired. TOTAL BUMMER. I'm not bitter towards the company though. It's definitely looked like a great place to work.

    Contract Position Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Boston, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    There was a step-by-step, skill by skill checklist the contract admins went through with their respective technicians. They reviewed what hardware, software, networking and other technology skills you had and how many years experience you had with each one. They also asked before each job what kind of tasks would you be able to do. Some contracts, like rolling out 500+ new desktops in a LISA setting, were actually physically as well as mentally demanding.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience with different technologies, years of experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered you jobs at a given rate of pay, and you could take it or leave it.

    Contractor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    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.

    Interview

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.

    Contractor Interview

    Negative Experience
    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

    Contractor Interview

    Average Interview

    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.

    • Please give an example of a work achievement.   Answer Question

    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.
