    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA).

    Interview Details

    Started in Jan. 2012 and finally interviewed in April with a start date of May 5th. When I finally met with the Regional Director it took a full 13 minutes. The process was very dated. Had she interviewed me in 1972 it may have been appropriate or on the mark. I knew from inside info I would not have to deal with her directly so I just chalked it up to an "Institutional Manager". Always been there and cannot go anywhere else.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, then about 7 days later got an email asking me to fill out their assessment test, several days later I received a phone call to make an appointment to take a phone call preliminary interview with the AAA H.R. department. They called me slightly later than they said they would but I apparently passed the phone interview. Later that day the local office called to set up a face to face interview for the following Tuesday.

    I arrived 15 minutes early and in business attire (even though those doing the CSR job were quite casual, I saw some ladies wearing house slippers) and they eventually came out to the lobby to get me.

    They sat me down with a CSR worker for 1 hour and I watched her do her job. There is absolutely NOTHING difficult about this job. If you can talk and navigate through a couple screens and or programs on a computer and have the demeanor to try to help people then you CAN do this job.

    After the hour was up they pulled me into a cubicle for the face to face interview. Asked the usual behavioral questions and want you to be specific, "tell us about a time with an upset customer that you dealt with", tell us why you wish to work for AAA etc.

    I had come into the interview from a job that I'd been working for the past 23 years and at the end of the interview I knew I didn't get the job as the person told me something like "This job is totally different than what you've been doing", and "Well, we have a couple more people to interview, so the recruiting agent will be contacting you in the next 2 days or so".

    2 or 3 days later I got the rejection notice saying I wasn't chosen.

    Personally, I think the face to face interviewer couldn't see how my previous job of 23 years might have connected well with the duties that the CSR position needs.

    Auto Travel Counselor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online was contacted a week later by HR was given a phone interview which I passed set up in person interview for following Monday. Met with head of HR was informed they thought I was more of a fit for Auto Travel Counselor rather than position of travel agent I had applied for. Which I was OK with, since I was advised if they found I was good at that position I could move on after time, to travel agent position. I was then interviewed a second time by someone else in HR. Then was interviewed by Assistant Manager at the branch office I would be working in, had to drive from HR building to branch office, but that was Ok only 5 minute drive. I was informed that branch manager was on vacation, and has final say. All interviewers were very nice extremely personable. I was made to feel very comfortable. All explained the job requirements and expectations and answered any questions I had. Was told they would contact me when they were done interviewing. Received a call the following Monday from head of HR stating all department heads I met with were extremely pleased with me, and the branch manager would be back on Thursday and they would like to set up a meeting between her and I. Was advised I would be called following week with time for final interview. I do not know if I will be offered a position yet, but I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the interview process. I was treated very well, and was most impressed how HR kept in touch with me with updates, and setting everything up. Too often people apply for jobs, are told they will be in contact, and are left in limbo until they realize they are not going to be called. Not the case with AAA Garden City. Very impressed.

    Dispatcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a never ending process because they only hire part time. 40+ hours are almost always available however unless you know someone you're never going to be a "full time" employee who gets to enjoy the benefits that come with being a "full time" employee.

    There are many employees that have been chasing a full time position here for as many as 5 and 10 years only to be passed over by nepotism.

    Hard work loyalty and dedication are not rewarded.

    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an series of phone interviews and also an simulated call situation. I passed all three and I finally had the face to face interview. It was in an small conference room, which still had not been cleaned from the last time it was occupied. The interview started with an series of what the position is like and the environment. The questions finally began. It was all on a few pieces of paper, more like an questionaire. Very little eye contact from the interviewer, I was shocked. I have been on alot of big corporate interviews and this was disappointing. The questions were the same questions I was asked over the phone. Describe an escalated call . How did you handle it? Describe how you went above and beyond on your previous job? I passed the first interview and the next interview was the manager of the call center. Sge asked the exact same questions from the first interviewer. I gave the same response. She was very arrogant and asked me did I upsell in my previous jobs. I knew there she was not satisfied with my responses and I knew I did not get offered the job. Too bad, I keep seeing that the company is still looking for reps. They need to have an human resources associate start interviews. This company is not screening properly. Honestly I am glad I was not offered the position. Just from the mannerisms. This is one place where my customer service skills would be stippened. I pride myself on my skills. Good luck to future candidates.
