The company that Tek Partners placed me with didnt really want or need what they said they wanted or needed; a technical writer. I had to do a PowerPoint presentation to justify my job. REALLY?! In the end, the company didnt want the position and Tek Partners had to let me know. It wasnt really their fault.

So you will get a good job, but where is the career? There is no job security, or growth opportunities. If you are going through a tough time, and need income, by all means take the job. Career seekers stay away.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – October 2, 2017
This is a company that you would be proud to be a part of. They are very passionate and concerned for your continued experience of continued great service. You can never go wrong being able to work for TekPartners. The staff goes over an above in every possible way.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 22, 2017
After several years of working here, it was better to leave on OK terms than continue the day after day grind. Over the past several years the culture has changed negatively here.
The typical SFL IT company is their main target and company. The tenured AEs have pretty much spoken for 90% of them even if you can break into a new department or business. Recruiters work a typical 10-12 hr day to fill the needs of the AE (sometimes working on a need even after it has closed because of a lack of communication).
If you can make it >2 years here you may get paid competitively. But they assign accounts based on favoritism and not on effort so growing your business is tough (doable - but tough - with the clique and favoritism). Sometime more effort is spent discussing who gets what account - or gets paid for a candidate - than actual business.
You can look at LinkedIn and see most people (leadership) are from a certain college in FL. If you didn't go there, you'll have a 2nd job trying to get develop a good rapport with them.
** 401k is NOT matched. So remember that when you listen to an offer **
Healthcare was one of the most expensive I've ever contributed to as an employee. Make sure you look at the total costs because that will eat into your paycheck quite a bit.
There are too many alternative IT staffing firms in SFL to think you have to start here. If this is the only job that will take you, it's a job.
It provides employment.
Founding leadership is kind of retired in place. New Leadership is click-y
Sr Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Tradestation – April 5, 2017
My work experience was positive overall. At the end of the contract my recruiter was promoted to another position and I was not informed of this so when my contract ended they had no more work for me. I am currently unemployed because they did not assign me to a new recruiter.
Good Salary, Great work Environment
Did not look out for end of contract or follow up to reassign at end of contract.
Telecommunications Technician II (Former Employee) – ft lauderdale – February 18, 2017
tek partners has been valuable to me finding work in the telecom industry. they have contacts at various companies and can find work much more efficiently than I can on my own, however I have had layoffs, but they haven't lasted more than 2 weeks usually.
It's either a hit or a miss. A lot of code calling. You're expected to meet your goals no matter what. Even if you get 100 voice mails. Only choice is to keep calling candidates. It isn't for everyone, but there are individuals who can be successful.
TekPartners is a good contract to hire employment.
Help Desk Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 6, 2016
I was hired at the first place I went to. They are great at matching employees to the perfect employer. I was placed at a company close to where I lived. The recruiter listened to what my requirements for employment was and matched everything I needed.
