Customer Service Representative Interview

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Aetna in January 2015.

Interview Details

The people in the office looked chained to their desks. Also, I was advised to dress upscale as I will say the secretary described it...then I get there and the workers were all in jeans. I was advised that I would be given a face to face interview, which was fine, but the other lady whom was to interview me was on a speaker phone at which was on a desk across the room. The supervisor had a long cord on this phone as well...but didn't bother to bring it over. So, i was constantly being told to speak louder...I actually lost my voice when I went home. The questions were very easy, however were written poorly and didn't have direction or meaning, once the supervisor read it properly that is. When I answered them the supervisor and interviewer over the phone acted as if I gave too educated of an answer. As if I was too smart for the job. Then once they described the extent of the job, I kindly advised them I had taken on a larger load at my previous employer...and they acted as if I belittled them. Once the "Hat Dance" was over they asked what I look for in a company, I told them honesty and long employment....they said,"k." Long story short...I should've played cute and dumb.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Aetna in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied through CareerBuilder.com and got the initial phone call from the recruiter about two weeks later. It was another two weeks before I got another call to schedule a phone interview. I was told to expect to spend a half hour on the phone. We talked for an hour. The questions were the normal interview questions and I felt no pressure to come up with overly elaborate answers. Before the end of the call I was told I would be passed through for a face-to-face interview. I got the call to schedule that the next day. After meeting with the hiring manager at the site, I was told to expect a call from the recruiter with instructions on filling out their on-line application. I received a call two days later with an offer. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly and made me feel comfortable during each step in the process.
