Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Ottawa, ON

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at TEKsystems in October 2013.

Interview Details 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.

Interview Question – What was your biggest obstacle and what have you learned from it?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Took a better paying job with a competing firm in Toronto.

Business Operations Associate Interview

Business Operations Associate
Mississauga, ON

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at TEKsystems in November 2010.

Interview Details 1. Phone interview with an internal recruiter. About five behavioral questions.
2. Online Excel test. Formulas and Pivot table.
3. Face to face interview with the hiring managers. Also behavioral questions and can be repetitive with the phone interview.
4. Phone interview with indirect managers at HQ. This is more of a chat about your background because at this point you were pretty much hired.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Technical Recruiter

I applied online and 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.

Technical Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Calgary, AB

I applied online and 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

Interview Question – What was the biggest failure in your life   Answer Question
