Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Advance America.

Interview Details – Initial interview was to get to know me, what I am about, very nice laid back interview. Depends on interviewer. She wanted someone who she knew would commit to the job and work for at least a year. (It was a part time gig to start, and at minimum wage part time jobs you have to expect people won't stay forever.)

Negotiation Details – I was told I would make 7.75/hr. $0.35 over minimum wage. No complaints, I knew coming in.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advance America in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call within a few days. The recruiter was incredibly rude and seemed uninterested in my answers. At the end of the call, she asked about salary requirements, and explained that I'd probably start at $10/hr. I asked if this was negotiable, since my current hourly pay is $11. She responded, "I don't know, maybe," and then followed that up with, "Okay, the manager might call you or something." She was by far the rudest, most negative recruiter I'd ever interacted with, and I wouldn't have pursued this company after that phone call anyway. Advance America, you should probably make sure people who represent your company know how to be polite.

Interview Question – They asked about my background in sales and collections in the phone interview. Very basic stuff.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Advance America in March 2014.

Interview Details – spent one day interviewing, called the day to take a drug test. The next day I was told i was Hired and they gave me enough time to tell my other job about my 2 week notice. They are closed on sunday. There is a 8 week training course so you learn everything and your training may not be at your home store.

Interview Question – I have had a lot of interviews. so Nothing was hard for me. Being asked to sell something may be hard for some people.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I told them the minimum and I asked for a certain amount. I got what I asked for. Part time is Guaranteed at least 25 hours and the first 8 weeks expect a lot of working with a DDO

I applied online and interviewed at Advance America.

Interview Details – Applied online to many stores, got a call a couple days later.. The test for the application were not hard at all, basic questions. I had an interview with the store manager and again they asked basic question.. Not too many, she mostly explained the position and asked if I would be up for it. She also explained the interview process, first interview with her , second with her manager or regional manager. I got a call that same day and got my second interview two days later. The regional manager told me all about the job in more detail and he just asked my dedication to work and things like that. The nest step was for an observation day. He said he had a lot more interviews to do that day and he is going to pick and choose people , it went very well... I also got a cal later that day and my observation day is scheduled for next week. After that is drug test and background check and then you start with two week of training.. Make sure you are prepared to answer good AND bad things about yourself and just think about the answers before answering!

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Port Saint Lucie, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Advance America in June 2011.

Interview Details – You must apply online, take 3 tests that includes math skills, customer skills, and banking skills. Do not wait for them to call you. After you are done filling out your application online call the store and ask to speak with the manager to make sure they received your application. If you passed all three tests they will call you for an interview.

Interview Question – What would you consider to be a successful day at work.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Actually there was no negation phase. Online when I applied it stated that they start you off at $10.00 with no experience. However after going through the interview, finishing my drug test, and taking the online training they only offered me $9.00. My advice would be to insure and ask how much you would like to get right after knowing you been accepted for the job before going any further.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Denver, CO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advance America in June 2011.

Interview Details – The interview wasn't much of an interview. I was just told about the job, wages and benefits. I was then asked to meet with the store manager where I would be working. Before going to my 2nd interview they took my info for a background check and told that I would hear something by the end of the week. When I went to my 2nd interview it was like the first. Both interviewers gave me the impression they couldn't wait for me to start. I have a clean background so that shouldn't have been an issue but I never heard back and when I called to check the status I was told upper management still haven't made a decision. It's been almost 2 months and I'm still being told that and the job is still open. I assume I'm getting the run around. If I wasn't so much in need of a job I would have passed this one up based on their interview process.

Interview Question – Was not given one.   View Answer
