    Engineer With TMS Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Technisource (Atlanta, GA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Just a couple of conversations with engineers and management really.

    Reasons for Declining

    I could tell this place was run like a sweat shop. When pressing management about the sales cycle I got a round about answer. There is apparently no direct sales people for the TMS group. Engineers seem to be run hard, and one of the managers actually said that he wished that "he could get management to understand that their you should full lucky to have a job attitude towards employees isn't applicable now that the IT job market has picked up". Not to mention the offer was a joke. No 401k, 2 weeks vacation, and an average salary, with very mediocre health care. When you are a staffing company, and try to hire people in to your company full time and give such a poor package, it certainly makes you wonder. Being a staffing company they should know better.

    IT Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pleasanton, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Technisource (Pleasanton, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I received a call from an internal recruiter, encouraging me to interview. The recruiter was cheerful, helpful, and organized. I quickly advanced to a 1:1 in person interview with the hiring manager, and soon a panel interview with the entire team of recruiters, where I could ask peers questions.

    In hindsight, I should have paid attention to some of the recruiter body language,who seemed to resent their participation in the group interview (they were required to participate). They provided me business cards, and I wish I had contacted them offine individually about the office environement. I would have declined the offer if I had fully understood how they were managed.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about selling primarily over the phone?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my base salary up 20% from the initial verbal offer. Management was elusive about the commission calculation and expectations. They could not produce a written formula for the commission calculation, and they had a very poor way of explaining it. As it turns out, their territory revenue expectations were too optimistic, and in the end the entire division was laid off after a matter of four months.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Technisource (San Diego, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the local recruiter off my Dice ad. There was a bit of a panicked tone to the conversation. Ends up the recruiter was trying to save face with his client as his last candidate up and quit unexpectedly. It appears that the recruiter didn't review my experience, and didn't have a good understanding of my abilities. But I went to the client and they liked me for the contract position.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no questions. That is where I think the recruiter didn't do his job well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation of salary. I was low-balled, and figured if I went perm I would push the issue.
