Director of IT in Gatineau
Good place to workfun place to work, they take good care of thier employees and the offices are in well kept with free snacks and drinks as well as company activites to help keep morale up. The management has tunnel vision and doesn't really pay much attention to the lower paid workers but the senior staff are very capable and talented
Senior Quality Assurance Analyst in Montréal, QC
The recruitment center is good to work for.The recruiter was really good and easy to work with. He kept me abreast of the position of the contract and renewals. When there was a miscommunication between the contracted company and TEKSystems, TEKSystems gave me an extra 2 weeks for the notice missed.

Good placements, bad managementFirst of all, TEKsystems got me my first permanent job placement and the experience I got while on the job was great. However, the management is rotten to the core. I was told by a former worker who passed my information on to them that it was a "den of snakes, but you can get a job!" which I can now say is definitely true. From the recruiters who try to lowball you during interviews, to the managers who know nothing about what you do, lie about your accomplishments, and don't care about what they say about you or to you, TEKsystems management is terrible. Recruiters will try to get you to lower your starting salary before being hired, I would recommend not going for it. A few interactions I had with my manager that shouldn't identify me are, having to tell them what the stat holidays were, and having to fight to get my hours nearly every time. Once TEKsystems realized the stat holidays guaranteed by the government were required to be paid, my manager would make it out to be TEKsystems doing me a favor by paying me. The people you work with are usually the same as you, out to get good experience to get a leg up, and maybe some certifications. For this reason, the work environment is usually pretty good in that respect. TEKsystems claims to support workers getting certifications, but that's only when "the budget allows it" and it never does. I know people who got certifications and still have not been reimbursed for it, despite working several years for the company. If you can ignore the management side of TEKsystems, this is a good company to work for.
Telecom CAD Designer in Mississauga, ON
Overall training period was very informative and productive.The time I've spend with the staff training being provided by the company was memorable for me. Everything from start to end was handled very professionally. Everything was on time, lunch, training hours, schedule, HR staff was very professional. I was really impressed by the way they explained their official ethics and environment, but during that training period the environment I've exposed was something being my expectations it was simply fantastic. Everything was very enjoyable.
