    Customer Contact Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Citi in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First I applied online. Then I received a call and email to set-up a phone interview. This interview was fairly easy, she just asked questions about your background and "Name a situation where you handled an upset customer". After I answered the questions, the recruiter informed me that there was an open interview spot for 3pm the next day. I arrived at the office (which is beautiful!) and met with a manager.
    This was a 1:1 interview. Now these questions were harder, mostly behavioral questions. The other name for this position is "Everyday Hero" and all questions revolved around the word Hero. The questions were as such: "Name a time where you went above and beyond for a customer." "Name a time where you had to collaborate with another co-worker to achieve efficiency" "Name a time when you realized there was a more efficient way to do a process and how you handled it" "what kind of manager experience helped you the most" etc.
    the following Monday, I was contacted by HR and started New Hire paperwork, which consists of a hefty background check and drug test.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time where you went above and beyond for a customer.   Answer Question
