    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at TEKsystems.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview, pretty standard stuff, not too hard. Was forwarded to an in-person interview the next week with a branch manager. Also fairly standard with some of the same questions, but he was a little intense and really tried to delve into my answers. Definitely some "off-script" moments.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at TEKsystems in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the Sourcing Specialist position through Ryerson University. However, I got an interview for the Technical Recruiter instead because they had already hired someone internally for the Sourcing Specialist.

    I got a reply within the week I applied. I had a phone interview that goes over the basics of the position and they really wanted to know more about me and if I fit within the organization.

    Very thorough phone and in person interviews. After you "pass the test", you must complete a half-shadow day to see if you fit in well enough to be added to the team.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems.

    Interview Details

    Process began with a 45 minute phone interview with your basic interview questions; strengths, weaknesses, why a career in sales, etc. Next was an in person interview with the Branch Director, lasted about 30 minutes - similar questions, went over cv again. Later that week they scheduled a "half day" shadow; came in at 745am, sat down with several different recruiters and account managers, discussing their day to day duties, ended with a panel interview with two account managers; asked redundant questions again, actual account manager was a French guy from Paris, very pompous and rude, seemed over-satisfied with himself, kind of a complete douche. Overall the process was long and every stage was repetitive and unnecessary. Very evident hierarchy in the office, two account managers from Paris, pretty narcissistic individuals to say the least. Out of the dozen or so recruiters there, only one seemed to be making any kind of money from commission, the others were making the base 37k, working from 745-530 minimum/day, monday-friday.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TEKsystems in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phase 1 : HR and HR questions, typical stuff. Why Tek, why recruiting, etc

    Phase 2: 1 on 1 interview with branch director. This was rather taxing and the branch manager asked some rather unpleasant questions (where were your parents born and what do they do) and "Where else are you applying?"

    Questions like "Monetary compensation or status compensation?"
    "What do you think is the most important skill to have?"

    Phase 3: Shadow day
    You will spend a morning shadowing the office and having a 1 on 1 talk with everyone there.
    Some of the employees will ask some questions like in phase 2. Ask questions here
