Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 February 2019
Inclusive training, structured role and clear responsibilities. Strong earning potential for those willing to work at it and that have a knack for sales and recruiting. Not an easy job, lots of rejection. Lots of uncontrollable factors. Rewarding when things go right.
Pros
Lunches & Coffee, Underground Parking, Management, Good Culture
Cons
Cold-calling, office setting

Good recruiting company
Project Manager / TELUS Mobility Contractor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC10 December 2018
Most recruiters that work at TEK Systems are young, low paid and inexperienced. The recruiters did buy me lunch a few times and followed up on my job progress. Over the coarse of 4 years I had three different recruiters from TEK Systems. Employee turn-over is high.

Technical Recruiter (Information Technology) (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON23 October 2018
Not the most transparent when starting. 10 hour days minimum, and stuck in some old habits when it comes to their day to day. Nice people to work with internally.

Liars
IT (Former Employee) –  Ontario23 October 2018
Lied about the nature of the job. Did not pay overtime. Forced on-call rotation when explicitly told it wasn't part of the position. I felt like a commodity being used to make other people money. I will never work for them again.
Pros
Nothing

Great people, long hours, mixed bag.
IT Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 September 2018
The culture is the best part of the company. A typically young environment with social people. Incredibly long hours, compensation packages aren't the best relative to other firms in the industry.

Business Relationship Manager (Former Employee) –  Lansing, MI18 July 2018
As long as you're earning, all is well. If you drop a contract, you may likely fall between the cracks (i.e. recruiter quit Tek, and was not notified of any replacement -- limbo).

High stress with high return
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 February 2018
Days start with early morning meetings where teams mull over their targeted business plans and share ideas on how to drive business forward.

After meeting, you sit at your desk and start calling consultants to identify their skills, goals, and interests in order to help sell roles to them.
Pros
Great networking, and free lunches
Cons
long hours and high ROI expectations

Say good bye to your personal life
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) –  AB13 December 2017
No work life balance, terrible management. They take people who are decent in sales and put them into director level positions, with little to no training on personnel management or leadership and expect them to positively impact your career. Most people who have been with the company for more than 2 yrs are so indoctrinated they expect you to give up all other aspirations for your life and career and just live the Tek Model. The company is designed to take people fresh out of school who have no life experience and shape them into thoughtless sales people so the company can make more money. no outside the box thinking, high pressure sales tactics to under cut consultants, and when they use you up they will spit you out and hire the next generation

Good place to learn
Lead Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 October 2017
Disclaimer: I work in the Montreal office.
The Montreal office is a development shop, as opposed to the rest of TEKsystems where the company is rather a recruitment firm.

Typical day at work:
One agile team per project (Project Manager, Business Analyst, Architect, Team Lead, Developers & QAs)

What to learn:
* The very knowledgeable lead architect is always striving to better ourselves by spending an hour per week on discussing many technical topics.
* Formations are given to learn about the different phases of an Agile project (inception, sizing, story writing, etc.)

Workplace culture:
People are helping each other out, as much as they can - which is awesome!

All in all, a very good company to work for (again, specific to the Montreal office), however....
The downside: the salary increase does not compete enough with what the market has to offer, and thus TEKsystems has a hard time keeping the good players in.
Pros
great learning experience
Cons
yearly salary increase are mediocres

Part time work as IT support
IT Support (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON29 June 2017
Great place to part time work. I never had full time with TEKsystems but they were amazing services and a great place to work.

Typical day was arrive early, get let in by security and get escorted to the place we needed to be working

Lead by a team lead and we were showed exactly how they wanted the work done.

It is a job
Program Manager, Continuous Improvement (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC7 May 2017
This is a fair place to work with. As an outsourcing vendor company, the jobs are tough.
The compensations were fair, at par or even a bit lower than the market level.
