Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TEKsystems (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

Interview

Abrasive and aggressive the interviewer did not seem prepared for first rounds. I had expected to speak about my resume and skills, but instead we went throughout my LinkedIn and it was critiqued throughout the 45 minute process.

Reasons for Declining

I didn't feel that the company culture was fitting for what I was looking for as a recent college grad

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TEKsystems (Madison, WI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    They only care about what you look like so...LOOK GOOD! Start out with an initial phone screen with an internal recruiter, followed by an in-person interview with the DBO, followed by a half day job shadow, followed by a final interview with an account manager. Must pass a background check and they speak to two references.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TEKsystems in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through referral. Had a friendly phone screen within one day of sending my resume. Filled out a formal application online and set up an on site interview about a week later. Definitely personal but if you know this going in there won't be any shocking questions. Typical questions in addition to the personal, life-story type questions. They want to hear you're 100% interested in sales and building a long career with them.

    I was invited into the office for a half-day with the company. The day began at 7:45am and it started with a daily group meeting. From there, I shadowed multiple different positions in the company and learned about how a day operates in the company. You learn the tasks and how people move up through the positions. It was very insightful and interesting.
