I posted a comment on an earlier discussion concerning TekSystems and I feel the need to reiterate on my experience to provide at least a string of hope in better faith in the company (at least in the Raleigh, Durham area).

I fell upon TekSystems by accident! I went into a building asking for directions to a scheduled interview and the assistant at the desk asked to just skim over my resume to see what exactly it was I was looking for. When she saw that I was an IT Specialist in the Air Force, she informed me about a HR department downstairs in her building that may be suitable as well and told me to go down and inquire. Me being the "go getter" I am - I DID! I asked the assistant at the desk of TekSystems if I could just drop my resume off and maybe schedule an appointment to talk to a manager later. She INSISTED I talk to a recruiter right then and there and he (Aaron Yuhas) gave me an interview on the spot!!! Apparently I was in the wrong place at the RIGHT time, as fate has it. This was almost 3 months ago and every since that period, Aaron has called me frequently with different positions and me knowing I could not take them right away, I offered one to someone that I knew was also job seeking and could work right away.

TekSystems has been the ONLY agency/company so far since my job search that seems dedicated in assisting me with my transition from the Air Force to the civilian forum. I am extremely apologetic to anyone that has had a bad experience knowing the GREAT experience I've had with my recruiter. If the job market is bad, then of course, there may be delays but I encourage everyone to keep the faith and know that everything will pan out in your favor in due time.

Your are right on the money with this posting. I too had a recent wonderful experience with Tek Systems. I like you am a go getter. To me that means I take responsibility to follow up and to knock on doors.

Well...I HAD great things to say about TekSystems. Remember my post from 4 months ago? Well SCRATCH ALL OF THAT!!!!! If you can, please attempt to not go through these temp agencies...please hit the pavement and just go door to door and BEG for a job. Now, the TekSystems personnel SAW my post and the good things I had to say about them - you think that persuaded them to help me or be honest about supporting me? NOPE! GOD was on my side. I now work for the State of NC and of course I didn't have to go through a temp agency to get this job. This is a job I hit the pavement for. Of course it's a pay cut but it's a JOB and it will be here for years to come - basically NOT TEMP and the guaranteed benefits for myself and my son. TEKSYSTEMS SUCKS - AND I CAN HONESTLY VOUCH FOR THIS.

You may elaborate if you'd like about Teksystems. I am still there and grateful to be working. Now, I would of course, much rather have a permanent job with benefits (they can cut you too) then to be working day to day with a placement agency that cuts the cream off the top of pay, does not give benefits unless you are ready to pay even more through the nose etc...My point is really they have a place when desperate. I am very happy for you and wish you the best. Tek is still there for me, I know my days are numbered but I am working. Maybe, I will get lucky (no its not luck when you are trying like you) and get that permanent gig outside placement hunters. Good or bad, I'd rather be permanent no question. Good luck to you.

Tek Systems is one of the best recruitment firms I've ever dealt with. When I was looking for a job last year they stayed on the trail until a good match was made. I would highly recommend Tek Systems to anyone who is looking for a position or a potential employer needing to fill a technical position.
