    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Acosta (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Interviewed with two lady supervisors. I was not grilled like in a lot of interviews, which is obviously a good thing. It was more laid back and they were friendly. It was mainly one lady doing the interviewing and the other was there to hear what was said and if she thought that there was anything that could be added she would then chime in.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acosta.

    Interview

    Very Easy, good interview I applied online and about a week later I recieved a phone call. I talked with the interviewer for maybe 20 minutes before he offered me the job. There were not any difficult to answer questions. It seemed as if he was just getting a feel for my personality. I almost felt like they just needed a warm body and I was nice so they hired me. I worked there for a few years and really enjoyed it.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Acosta in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the Business Process Solutions Expert position in July and was contacted by an hr rep several weeks later. I then did a phone interview with a consummate Acosta HR staffing professional, who was considerably kind, and informative. During the phone interview, a description of the job was reviewed. And I answered questions about how my background prepared me for the position. Why I was interested in the role. And how I could potentially advance Acosta's processes.

    Leadership Development Program Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acosta (Houston, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process begins when you submit your resume to their website. After that, an initial phone screening is performed by an HR associate to verify everything on your resume. If that person decides you should continue to move on, you will interview with four different people within the office. First, you will meet with the VPs (3) of the departments; they all have different situational questions for you, and will explain how and when they would be interacting with you if hired. Lastly, you interview with a person who would be your mentor in the LDP program. This interview is much less formal, and is more a test to see how compatible you two are. Generally, there will be 2-4 potential mentors, and you will have this brief meeting with all of them. Once you’ve completed this process, you need to take a drug test, and then the formal offer can be confirmed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Acosta (Tempe, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview was pleasant and very hopeful, I am used to getting the job. I met with the Regional Supervisor who was very overwhelmed. He explained the job in detail and sounded like a good company to work for. I know of a rep for the company who I run into frequently. He stated that the position had not been filled yet. I called him immediately, he sounded confused and did not seem to know what I was talking about. I never heard back, boy did they miss out!
