    Negative Outlook

    I worked at TEKsystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You learn how to communicate with people effectively. Very grateful for keeping the recruiters onboard during the coronavirus period, the company went above and beyond. There is real money to be made if you can put aside your morals.

    Cons

    Essentially just a call centre job. Calls per day targets, poor training system and lying to candidates/(bending the truth) on a daily basis. Didn’t agree with my ethical compass at all.
