    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clearwater, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Tech Data (Clearwater, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    One way computer HR interview with Generic Questions about how you deal with customers and some personal questions followed by 2 person phone interview with the Hiring manager and Technical Staff. This was for the Cisco Role.

    One month and a week later they still did not get back to me despite mailing them repeatedly. Huge companies like TechData don't value a person's time. I understand if everyone can't be reached after a one way initial screening but it's utterly disrespectful of the company to be knee-deep in the process and not update the candidate with any decision a month later.

    ASR Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tech Data (Clearwater, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After applying, I received an invite for a video interview the next day. They invited me to a face to face within the same day. During the face to face they asked me very specific questions about past work experience, and quizzed me on my knowledge of the company. There were two people interviewing me and the one lady didn't seem very interested in what I had to say. After hounding me for specific examples of past work related scenarios for about an hour, they put me on the sales floor and had someone teach me how to do the job. She quickly went over how to do enter all the data and then made me do it myself. It wasn't that hard and I did fine. After about two hours of intense interviewing for a job where you are just filling out data and sending emails for most of the day, I went home and checked my email a few days later to find I wasn't offered the job. I appreciate them getting back to me so soon, but I wish they didn't waste so much of my time when the interviewer didn't seem to have much interest from the beginning.

    Interview

    A Tech Data manager invited me via LinkedIn to visit the office in Largo.
    I have visited the office. He introduced me to a group of managers. At the end, he mentioned that HR will contact me.
    2 weeks later, a young (super young lady) contact me via e-mail to apply for this job.
    I have applied on-line, sent Cover Letter with the Manager´s name.
    No answer for 2 weeks.
    I requested a feedback via e-mail.
    The "young girl" apologize and said they want to continue the process with a video interview.
    I provided this video interview (very bad experience, I do not recommend). I am a business professional, I am not an actor.
    This was in November 2016. They never sent a Thanks you for your performance or any feedback. I have requested via e-mail, but there is no answer.

    "I would like to invite you to apply for an excellent position at Tech Data!"

    Solutions Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tech Data (Tampa, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Kelly Services at Tech Data. I was asked about my availability and encouraged to interview with a manager for a temporary position. The interviewer was unaware that I would only be available on a temporary basis even though I had discussed this with the recruiter at least twice in the past month. The interview was very easy; I got a tour of the floor I would be working on and was not asked anything difficult.
