Customer Contact Representative Interview

Customer Contact Representative

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Citi in August 2013.

Interview Details – Just like the other reviews stated, when you apply for a position at Citi, part of the application process is pretty standard. However, they do have a section where you have an hour to complete a series of behavioral type questions. That same day, I received notice that I successfully qualified on the assessment. Five days later I received a phone call from Citi as a very quick phone type interview. The purpose of that call was to see how I heard about Citi and why I wanted to work there. After talking for no more than five mins, an in person interview was set up and I received an email to complete more electronic paper work before the interview.

The interview process was very relaxed. One person was there to ask me more behavioral work related questions, the process took no more than 15-20 mins.

That very same day, I got the call saying they would like to hire me. Very smooth and positive hiring/interview process.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. Questions ranged from, can you name a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer; explain your greatest accomplishment and explain a difficult situation that you encountered during work and how you resolved it.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they told you the pay and you either accept the position or decline it, but I was pretty content with what was offered.

Customer Contact Representative Interview

Customer Contact Representative
Tucson, AZ

I applied online - interviewed at Citi in January 2012.

Interview Details – Start the process by visiting Citi's website and the Careers section. Once their, one can search for the specific job by title, by typing a general description such as Call Center, or by browsing jobs according to locations. Complete the application, completely; and don't lie about any criminal background because Citi's research will turn up every police report ever filed on you. You'll get a phone call and telephone interview. Then they'll schedule an in person interview that ask basically the same questions, but adds a few situational questions to determine how well you think "on your feet." Next comes a photograph portrait and fingerprinting. The fingerprinting is what will find any criminal past. Then you give a urine sample at a drug test lab and wait for Citi to call you, saying you got the job.

Interview Question – 1. You are at work and experience a difficult to handle customer on the phone, one who calls you some ugly names, what would you do?
2. You see an employee stealing confidential information about customers. What would you do?
3. Explain a time when you ran into a problem and had to solve it by yourself. What was the problem, how did you solve it, and what was the result?
  View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You get paid $10.70 per hour plus whatever bonus you earn from your work.

Customer Contact Representative for Collections Interview

Customer Contact Representative for Collections
Fort Mill, SC

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citi in June 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online on Citi's website and received an e-mail a week later asking to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview questions consists of behavioral questions and past experiences. After the phone interview I was told that I would receive an e-mail 5-10 days later for an in-person interview. 5 days later I received an e-mail to schedule an in-person interview. The interviewer had little experience with interviews and was reading questions off a piece of paper.. He would also write while I was answering questions and it was very distracting for me. The questions asked are similar to the ones in the phone interview. Overall, I was disappointed by the lack of preparation by the interviewer.

Interview Question – Name a time when you had to deal with an angry customer.   View Answer

Customer Contact Representative Interview

Customer Contact Representative
Jacksonville, FL

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Citi in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online which also consisted of a personality test. I received an email the next day asking to call and set up an on-site interview. I received a confirmation email with directions and name of contact. When I arrived, I was told the original contact was busy so I had to interview with someone else. This person appeared to be unprepared. He was constantly flipping through a binder and asking general questions at random. I did have to read a few paragraphs from a card so he could hear how I would sound on the phone. I was also told I would be selling products and services as well as customer service. On a side note- I noticed rainbow banners hanging in the lobby to celebrate Gay Pride during the month of June.

Interview Question – Name a good decision you made recently.   View Answer
